More on government
I found this excellent video (sorry for the link, they don’t have embedding) on a friends profile on Facebook. It walks us through the various forms of government, is peppered with pithy lines from great thinkers and in my opinion ought to be made compulsory viewing for school children.Growing up, I regarded “Civics” as a mighty boring subject that one must study by rote, to pass exams. That it is one of the bases of my way of life was beyond my comprehension at the time.
PS: Blogging has been slow since Facebook is where I spend most of my cybertime these days. With friends sharing links from all over the internet, methinks it is a great way to exercise some mental muscle.
PPS: Kid brother observed that most of my blog posts are peppered with ‘!’, so I decided to go on a crash diet. Voila, this post has none.
