The transient and comparatively very short nature of parenthood within a lifetime.
The short and fleeting years of parenting in the school years, the great difficulties and economic hardships that these years bring to all parents *versus primitive historical facts and the backward ideology of a cultural heritage UK, mostly rated as barbaric or primitive to fairly appalling and muddled. See, Darlington – below. Religion and short term faddy media orientated politics and reporting. The educational indoctrination, which is *against the majority of parents wishes, as their own modern belief’s and faith’s and personal ideologies are bordering on secular or atheist. See, ‘In Search of Mr Average’. I.e., total present disconnection of Parents to School Ethos’s and Curriculum’s (Tests UK ‘reduce children to widgets’ http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/education/6626277.stm)
The ‘usurpation’s’ (infliction of State Ideology) and ‘powerlessness’ of Parents as *against the established and longer-term dinosaurian dictatorial nature of (our) UK Educational Institutions. Schools – Government, Religious, Private-ideological, Business financed Education. The indoctrination of an appalling multiculturalism (who wants – most of ancient Christian ‘dogma’ or forced/arranged marriage, female circumcision, death penalties, burkha’s, sharia laws and so on…?). A culture of (simple) multi-racialism; surely being, the much better answer for us all in the UK!

Do you know – "What is going on in your area? Who is in the (unelected – by secret session) ‘positions of power’? What does it cost you and are they paying any ‘Council Tax’ or do they have some (secret) well-hidden exemptions"?

Bronowski summarised his scientific humanism in his monumental television series, "The Ascent of Man". Speaking in Auschwitz he said, "When people believe that they have absolute knowledge, with no test in reality, this is how they behave. This is what men do when they aspire to the knowledge of the gods. Science is a very human form of knowledge. We are always at the brink of the known, we always feel forward for what is to be hoped. Every judgement in science stands on the edge of error and is personal. Science is a tribute to what we can know although we are fallible…We have to curve ourselves of the itch for absolute knowledge and power. We have to close the distance between push-button order and the human act. We have to touch people".
Theology: or, Philosophy of Bronowski? The Educators must choose!
