Project 52 - Week 25
One of my Project 52 projects is to educate myself, especially in politics and history. These subjects never seemed that important when I was younger, but now that we have an administration that seems hell-bent on turning us into a socialist country, those subjects now seem vitally important.
The only way we can prevent history from repeating itself is to be educated in these areas.
Freedom! (I always picture Mel Gibson in "Braveheart" when I say "freeeeee-dom"!) I love this speech, and if I did this correctly, you can listen and be inspired also.
Slight digression, there.
Truth and knowledge set us free. We owe it to ourselves and future generations to be as educated as possible.
We can educate ourselves in many ways. Formal education is an option. However, the cost of a college education is astounding, and the percentage of liberal professors is even more astounding. The cost of a college education is up over 900% since 1978. Self education is another option, but not if you plan on getting a degree. The answer may lie in the third option, which is taking online college courses such as this one.
We all have busy lives, and one of the great things about online schooling, is the flexibility it offers. I'm not working on a degree, but online courses like this one provide valuable resources that are attainable and affordable.
