“The whole objective of education is to develop the mind. The mind should be a thing that works.”

How are humans like animals? How are humans different? Are we “born to be wild?”

How is the 10 Commandments like Hammurabi’s Code and Buddha’s Eightfold Path? How is it different?

How is ancient Egyptian religion similar to Christianity? How is it different?

How is the Indian caste system like American attitudes toward different types of occupations and social classes? How is it different?

How is the ancient Chinese Mandate of Heaven and Dynastic Cycle similar to American presidential elections? How is it different?

How is Confucian philosophy regarding “knowing one’s place” and concept of duty similar to traditional American attitudes toward gender roles? How is it different?

How is ancient Athenian democracy similar to American democracy? How is it different?

How is American democracy today different from 250 years ago, 140 years ago, 90 years ago, 35 years ago? What is democracy?

Why did Rome fall? What happened after Rome fell? Keep in mind the elements of civilization.
