A dangerous thing can occur when you start learning about what's really going on in the world. The problems start to seem so complex, and you're just one person, doubts begin to creep in. You sincerely want to help change the world, but from all this knowledge you start to believe that the world is too out of control and too big to change, so you end up not doing anything. What aspiring change-agents can easily forget is that there is a large amount of meaningful groundwork that still needs to be laid.

It's time to leave the old, broken, failing public education system behind and begin anew with something that really works. No more bureaucratic bloat, no more wasteful spending, no more needless authoritarianism, and most of all, no more frustrated, disillusioned students. A new school project in Oregon is working to do all of that, and they need your support.

What is the value of a college education? What is the value of a trade skill like electrician, cabinet maker, plumber, welder, or machinist? What is the value of a skill like agriculture, farming? Outsourcing skilled and unskilled labor, the dominate US corporations have made slaves of people in those countries that have accepted the outsourced jobs. Sooner or later those slaves will realize the economic boon is only temporary, and quite illusory. Now, especially in the Middle East, some of those slaves are beginning to awaken and revolt.

In the midst of hacktivists using ECDs (similar to distributed denial of service attacks) to defend Wikileaks, it's worth having a document that describes how such attacks are planned and executed. Such a zine has recently been released that is written in laypersons terms so expertise in computing or networking is certainly not needed to understand it. If you have the ability to browse the web and edit a Microsoft Word document, you've probably got what it takes to understand the ideas it presents.

"This country is a nation of thieves. It stole everything it has, beginning with black people. The U.S. cannot justify its existence as the policeman of the world any longer. I do not want to be a part of the American pie. The American pie means raping South Africa, beating Vietnam, beating South America, raping the Philippines, raping every country you've been in. I don't want any of your blood money. I don't want to be part of that system. We must question whether or not we want this country to continue being the wealthiest country in the world at the price of raping everybody else."

It seems to be simple at first. A student gets a little behind in his studies. An exam comes up and he needs to prepare. He'll have to stay up late to have even a chance of making the grade. Coffee gives him the jitters, but many of his friends use these pills to give the extra energy they need. Why not? A couple of bucks; one pill; an entire night of study; a feeling of "focus".

Portland has been rather quiet about the high school redesign issue. As of last evening, it was formally decided that Marshall High School (all three academies) in the struggling Lents neighborhood of Southeast Portland will be closed. Benson Polytechnic High School will become a smaller magnet school, although it will remain a four-year vocational high school. Jefferson High School will become a focus school. The affected student communities and their families have been vocal. However, where was the rest of the Portland community? Were people silent because they did not have children in the schools? Did they not care because their children's schools were not targeted? It takes a village to raise a child. Where was the rest of the Portland village during the high school redesign process? Here are some questions to ponder as the high school redesign takes effect.... Your silence will not protect you (or yours).
