    It reminds me of a Jewish preacher who marveled at Dream Works,
    that we’re so into believing things that aren’t true. I heard’m right after

      There’s a strange statement about children currently being “reliant” on textbooks, notebooks, and pencils — that causes me to think outside of their herding or attempt to coral thought and false hope — of slaves and women being denied useful understanding plus skills of agency and autonomy.
