The education system in my state was basically on a downward spiral when I was a small child.
Even though we were in a bull economy before the 2001 terrorist attacks, my state’s legislature was easily cutting education spending left and right.
They actually provide big corporations with major tax cuts and fund it by reducing expenditures for public welfare. And since many of the people in the state legislature have financial ties to a majority of these companies, they’re lining their own pockets with education and food stamp cash. It makes me sick just thinking about it! When I likewise get infuriated with stubborn or ignorant people, I have to remind myself how horrible my own education was before I left for college and came back for work. Unlike most of the people I know in my life, academics and studying appealed to me and my interests. I was actually listening to lectures on my mp3 player back in the day and it genuinely pushed me to fill in the gaps at school with self-education. One fine example is my deep interest in the marijuana plant. I didn’t try cannabis until I was 17 years of age, although I was studying about it for numerous years before that point. Since I was at first studying to meditate from my actual study of Eastern Philosophy, I wondered if cannabis would be able to supplement those practices. Hashish eating for religious sacrament goes back a good way in the Eastern world. Although my experiments with meditation never yielded anything too amazing, I still liked the anxiety relieving and euphoric effects from the plant. I never became accustomed to drinking alcohol recreationally so it’s excellent to have an alternative drug choice to use for capping my days.
