Remember last summer when I had a nice thread series going where I'd try to get you guys to talk about life and the human mind rather than arguing about how much tension there is in the Near East this time of year? Consider this a part of that. Anyway, I've had this idea going around in my mind.
The idea that we can find peace somewhere else, without having actually been there...the idea that "dreams" are just that, dreams.

It's always been a childhood dream of mine to leave. Head out to Vermont, maybe, and buy a lot of land to just sit on and think. Build bungalows on hills in Wyoming, perhaps, while the television raves about problems of a world I'm not really a part of.

More recently, it's been to move to Ireland, where an ocean would separate me from my fears of heroin-fueled home invasions and nuclear power plants wiping out my city while I sleep. I can see it clearly in my mind - the streets of Dublin spread out in front of my eyes as I breathe European air, content in my knowledge that I made it.

I'll never move to Ireland.
I'll never own acres of land in Vermont as I maintain my own organic vegetable garden, and I'll never dam up streams in Wyoming to wet my toes in as I casually fish from a makeshift dock built out of tree stumps. I'll never look south upon a lake on the Canadian-American border as I think about how annoying crickets are when I'm trying to sleep, and I'll certainly never casually stroll across the streets of Prague as I think about how beautiful the Czech architecture looks compared to the subdued blobs of iron back in New Jersey.

I know this. I always have known this. I still dream about Dublin, though. I still dream about Vermont. I still wake up every morning and check the locks on my windows to make sure they're still sound, and that'll never change. I'll never change. During the day, you see, I'm a 511 operator for the state of New Jersey, watching from my bird's eye view as the entire world collectively decides to make left turns too quickly, and as every blond-haired college girl with a Honda decides at once to plow straight into that guardrail. This is what I do during the day. During the night, however, I'm growing maize in Wyoming, and occasionally going into town to stock up on shells for the shotgun that I kept around. During the day I watch people die a dozen times a week as officers in black suits tell me that they're going to need a second copy of that video for the evidence locker. During the night I'm in Montana, snuggling down my pet fox cub who's mother was somebody's coat. During the day you sit on dusty office chairs as the monotony of the day gets written down on monochromatic forms as the police tell you kindly that you've been a great help. At night you're in Ireland. Close your eyes.


How about you, NSG? Am I crazy? Am I alone in this? Where are you at night? Where do you go in your dreams, to escape whatever ails you face during the day? Are you in Manitoba, wrestling your mind and enjoying every moment? Maybe you're in New York, watching from your 88th-story window as the world moves below you? Maybe you're in Ohio, finally paying off the loan for that farm you bought so your kids don't have to sell their self-worth to some faceless corporation? What's your "dream life"?

Close your eyes, NSG. Where are you?

One of those rare occasions where personal testimony is both relevant and well-written enough to bring an important perspective to the larger discussion.

Scanzian Freehold wrote:
Nanatsu no Tsuki wrote:I have to ask, as I never went to school in the US (either North or South) but, how different is US history taught?


Wish I'd been online for this question when it was asked... Well, Nana, let me tell you a little story of my personal experience with the difference. Sit on down a spell, and have a listen:
Since I moved from 'Yankee Bluebelly' territory to the 'Grand Ol' Piedmont' between my 8th and 9th grade years back in 1985, I can only personally answer for that generation and period, but from what I understand it's actually become more spun and sectarian in certain school districts since.

The difference is culture shock inducing. I went from a general civics/history class on "American History" in the North, with two chapters around the causes and effects of the Civil War, to a split semester on "Early American History," followed by a semester on the "War of Nawthen Aggression." Sure, the glossy blue-grey text book said "Civil War," but it was never referred to as such by any instructor, faculty member, or local student; and when the words "Civil War" would come up in the book, the instructor would pointedly overemphasize the words "WAH of NAWWTHN A-GRESSH-ION" in their place. Even referring to it as the "War Between the States" was met with the sternest and most patronizing lectures. Mind you, this was the public school system in Fauquier County1, only 55 miles from D.C.... The closer you got to VMI, the worse it got, according to acquaintances from other schools.

This was followed by a refresher in "Mid-1800s Literature," in tenth grade, and 11th Grade Civics spent no less than a quarter on the Civil War, as well. "States Rights" was the perennial subject of the Debate Club's regional meet. Civil war battlefields were also the yearly field trip sight, usually Manassas Battlefield. Because they won. Twice. (Strangely enough, though, the 12th Grade field trip was to the Jewish Embassy in D.C., and George Washington University, for whatever that's worth. I think it was after a major school board demographic change, though.)

As soon as I could after High School, I moved back up to these parts, where I have been involved, over the years, with various scholastic groups, teachers, and institutions, and have stayed pretty up-to-date on the courses at Jr High and High Schools locally and elsewhere. While the subject emphasis on history vary by region and school board makeup, the time spent on Civil War issues is almost 3 to 1 across the Mason/Dixon line, with the South spending, on average, three times as much classroom time on the Civil War, much of it biased towards the "States Rights" revisionist argument of the New South.

Given, this is a personal testimonial, completely apocryphal, and colored by the very layered and generally unpleasant experience of my adolescence in rural Virginia, so, take that as you will, Your Mileage May Vary, etc.; but there is definitely a difference in sheer amount of time spent on the US Civil War between Southern and Northern rural schools, even today, and the degree of bias. I am told that is not so pronounced in more diverse urban areas, like parts of Richmond, or Fairfax.

As a sort of a Post Script: the yearly re-painting of the school rock (AKA "Falcon Rock", after the FHS sports teams,) at the highest point of the inner courtyard, always included at least one Confederate flag, usually the so-called "Rebel" flag, (but actually the flag of Tennessee, which would be painted over by faculty almost immediately,) and frequently the square Army of Northern VA. flag (otherwise identical to the "Rebel Flag,") which would usually be left for several weeks, and the Bonnie Blue Flag (Virginia's rebel flag, of which the associated song2 was driven into my head in 9th Grade2,) which would only be painted out at the beginning of the next school year. Because Historical Value and State Pride.
1Fauquier, by the 80s, only had one high school. It had two during segregation, but rather than have "our good white children" sent to the "Darkie School," a battleflag waving local patriot and father of two burned it down with his friends in the early 60s. (People still fondly remembered and recounted the tales of those good ol' days of torch wielding mobs 'round those parts.)
2"...Hurrah! Hurrah! For Southern Rights, Hurrah! Hurrah for the Bonnie Blue Flag that bears a single star!"

Funny you bring up cell structure... because you know what our society gets from people who understand cell structure? Modern medicine, that's what.

You may not like this stuff, and maybe it's not for you, but the kind of knowledge you're talking about here forms the basic building blocks of medicine. And if there's one thing we always need more of, it's doctors and medical researchers.

The more high school students get exposed to this topic, the more will become fascinated by it, and go on to study medicine. And, perhaps, someone studying golgi bodies in high school right now will one day go on to find a cure for cancer, or a way to stop aging.

That offends me, since it goes against my values and all I stand for. So the premise that "we've done nothing to offend you" as written in the OP is wrong for a variety of religious people. Religious people that do this, have offended me. Time and time again.

And yes, I can coexist peacefully with someone worshipping a God, as long as they never use it as an excuse for hatred, bigotry or ignorance. Because I cannot stand idly by when people are ruining the things that I stand for.

Arkhanic Assassins wrote:Since you enjoy generalizing about how something is completely bad. I'll replace "Religion" with "Progress" or "Science"

Human breakthroughs and convenience that save more lives than those lost, thereby creating an imbalance in nature and have since then sent the entire population exploding out of control. Technological advancements and discoveries that further the gains of more evil people than good, endlessly creating ways of efficiently doing more harm. A societal generation that is ever becoming de-humanized, with morals becoming just a factor that can be shrugged off instead of it being a necessity. The world has spiraled out of control quite quicker than those of the last few centuries, and its recovering less than it should. We are living at a ticking time bomb, in natural disasters, and human conflicts.

General apathy and rebellion, with governments focusing and spending more on conflicts instead of its people. Pandemics and diseases that develop so alarmingly due to human interference and their ever increasing demands to mold plant and animal life to yield at their maximum potentials.

I would like you to look at human "progress" and "Science" and see if the good it brings outweighs the corrupted purpose as it falls on evil hands.

Go ahead and call me a hippy or a sheep, or whatever it is that you cog in with your generalizations, but if you're so intent to rant about how having faith is poisonous. I'd rather be ignorant than condescending and bitter.

Or even just identifying as a citizen from a country.

I just don't get why people would want to label themselves or refer to themselves as a label. I mean it's always felt sort of bullshit to me at least. I don't care about my ethnicity, why should I? I mean, I guess I'm "American" but, what does that even mean? What does it mean to be an American? A white picket fence and a golden retriever? Hot Dogs and the Ball Game? No thanks.

Do I have to join any specific sub-culture? Why can't I just pick and choose between all of them?

Do I have to fully subscribe to any philosophy to appreciate philosophy and discuss it? Be it political or not?

The answer to all of the above is no, at least for me. However, my question to you is why would it be "yes" for you?
