    particularly reading. the data rate of reading is much greater than when somebody's talking. read Jordan Peterson. read Cornel West. read Steven Pinker. read Sam Harris. you need to be engaged with the text. wrestle with it. learn how to teach it.

    dont go to lectures. the data rate is too slow. why are they reading the textbook to our kids? this is like a bedtime story. RIDICULOUS!

    I bet most college kids are way better learners and are way smart then you. You're just jealous.

    Read What?

    We should have had a National Recommended Reading List decades ago.

    Why not Alfred Korzybski instead of Jordan Peterson?

    It looks like Heinlein covered Peterson in The Moon is a Harsh Mistress. Readers just need to think about the zeitgeist of the story rather than just read the story.
