The Meaning of Becoming a First World Country

Long time ever since the end of WW2, the rich countries on planet have devised a standard to distinguish other poor countries on the planet.

They title themselves as the first world countries, the “developed” countries. To hit the standard of developed countries, according to Wikipedia,

Economic criteria have tended to dominate discussions. One such criterion is income per capita; countries with high gross domestic product (GDP) per capita would thus be described as developed countries. Another economic criterion is industrialization; countries in which the tertiary and quaternary sectors of industry dominate would thus be described as developed. More recently another measure, the Human Development Index (HDI), which combines an economic measure, national income, with other measures, indices for life expectancy and education has become prominent. This criterion would define developed countries as those with a very high (HDI) rating.

The Damage of Robotic Education

I ask questions, many questions. And many of these many questions are critical questions.

I don’t see others ask these questions. Why? I don’t see them ask questions.

Humans are born questioners. They question everything, from the infinite night sky to who am I.

But, why don’t I see people ask these questions anymore? Is it that the questions are answered? Is it that they already know? Or…?

Luck

I think I have talked about luck many times now.

Luck is never arbitrary, it shall never be taken for granted.

Everything happens for a reason, there’s a cause so that there’s a consequence.

Luck is one of the thousands consequences which boost your actions.

People think that lottery is arbitrary, think good stuff happens for no reason. There is a reason for the good stuff is happening to you, not others.

Machinery and Humanity

It’s always a two paths fork in front of human and always a one way road in front of machine.

We built machines. As us humans.

We built something that only follows rules, nothing other than rules. Very loyal and very submissive servant – machine.

Machine only follows rules, it follows its creator’s commands, it always obeys, never mutinies.

Lifechanger

Great performance I saw last night from my best friend’s theatre debut.

A very delicate show that is made by effort and time. It was about in an asylum 7 men meet together and figuring out how to escape. My friend was acting a reporter as in a main role of the play. I can fully appreciate the great and energetic performance by them.

China’s Education and What Education Should Be Like

Education should focus on making better humans.

Whatever it is, when we let a young man enter society, he should at least possess set of skills/abilities to accomplish what he wishes.

Nowadays education has ultimately changed its nature, it’s schooling, rather education.

I don’t see teachers are teaching skills rather than filling them up with useless tests that don’t prove a damn. The essence of schooling is to make students adapt a certain competitive system, but this system is so different than the real world systems. You don’t need to write tests, you don’t need to memorize textbook points. If you are talking about real system, hierarchies are most common in every industry’s office. Are you going to thrive in that system by finishing your tests? Office politics is a test for your social skills, that doesn’t have to do with anything test-related.

Origin of Ethics, and More – Metaethics, Deism, Reasoning

Recently I have come across an article which lightened my sight, even though, from the original post Discussion on Whether It’s Good or Evil  I have asked about the origins and development of ethics. And in this article Where Does Morality Come From? still couldn’t answer how does it develop.
