sacred cows – (video) (en/es)

Sacred cows
Sacred cows get slaughtered here.
If education —at its best— weren’t the path from cocky ignorance to miserable uncertainty, and college the place to go when you want to get laid …
If ideally, what should be said to every child, repeatedly, throughout his or her school life is something like this: “You are in the process of being indoctrinated. We have not yet evolved a system of education that is not a system of indoctrination. We are sorry, but it is the best we can do. What you are being taught here is an amalgam of current prejudice and the choices of this particular culture. The slightest look at history will show how impermanent these must be. You are being taught by people who have been able to accommodate themselves to a regime of thought laid down by their predecessors. It is a self-perpetuating system. Those of you who are more robust and individual than others will be encouraged to leave and find ways of educating yourself —educating your own judgments. Those that stay must remember, always, and all the time, that they are being molded and patterned to fit into the narrow and particular needs of this particular society”…
If democracy would be something more than two wolves and a sheep voting on what to have for dinner …
If some crazy guy on a unicycle, wearing a checkered table cloth as a cape, juggling, would appoint me as Secretary of Education …
I would introduce throughout the school life of every child a new mandatory assignment:
BULLSHIT!!
It would consist in a daily Penn and Teller’s video -including some graphic language, violence, and brief nudity- to question many of our culture’s most cherished and widely held beliefs, and some eye-opening analysis of the middle-ground between perception and reality.
Here a couple of samples —try not to have a good time … this is supposed to be educational.

Sacred Cows – Dugutigui on Penn and Teller’s Bullshit

Acerca de Dugutigui

In the “Diula” language in Mali, the term « dugutigui » (chief of the village), literally translated, means: «owner of the village»; «dugu» means village and «tigui», owner. Probably the term is the result of the contraction of «dugu kuntigui» (literally: chief of the village).
