Global Warming Be Damned~ I live in Marondera.

I live in Marondera, and I have to say to those people who don’t believe we have global warming– Come up here. People who live up here will tell you that the summers used to be wonderful. Nothing above 30 degrees, and always a cool breeze. Nights that are perfect for sleeping. A few summersContinue reading “Global Warming Be Damned~ I live in Marondera.”

No Child left behind 2

By K.T.Nhamo On Zealous Thierry From outside the field of education, “No Child Left Behind” seems like a great program, one that will force Zimbabwe to live up to its ideal: a free and equal education for everyone. We will train good citizens and productive workers, no matter where they live or what the economicContinue reading “No Child left behind 2”

How worried should we be about income inequality?

By K. T. NHAMO On Zealous Thierry Forced economic equality is socialism. It’s unZimbabwean to be for socialism. But Zimbabwean’s strength is our majority middle class… How worried should we be about income inequality?

No Child left behind 2

From outside the field of education, “No Child Left Behind” seems like a great program, one that will force Zimbabwe to live up to its ideal: a free and equal education for everyone. We will train good citizens and productive workers, no matter where they live or what the economic status of their parents. ButContinue reading “No Child left behind 2”

No Child left behind

My mom is a veteran teacher in what used to be a good school, and I can tell you dozens of horror stories about how education has changed for the worse since “No Child Left Behind”. Sure, it would be great if teachers got together and took a stand. But there’s not much chance ofContinue reading “No Child left behind”

This war

So far, I am untouched by this war. My family was profoundly touched by earlier wars. My great uncle was killed in Chimurenga. Not in combat, in a training accident while he was still in his teens. A cousin of mine was killed when his helicopter was shot down in Congo. I’ve run my fingersContinue reading “This war”

The American Problem.

The problem with you Americans is you don’t have politicians, you have front men for corporations… Elections, the Constitution, your law– these are just an inconvenience to these office holders. You just lost a major city to a natural disaster. Tens of thousands are still homeless. What have your so called “politicians” done for theseContinue reading “The American Problem.”

Re-declaring our Independence!

They’re listening in on all of us, you know. Scanning for key words. Of course you know, even if you won’t admit it. They want you to know. Because the real purpose of the domestic spying program is to scare you, so you won’t talk openly with your friends and neighbors. People keeping their opinionsContinue reading “Re-declaring our Independence!”

The Greatest race.

Right now, I see a race between the corruption scandals destroying the RP and the RP destroying Zimbabwe. I hope the scandals will develop quicker: Give voters a heads-up about what’s happening. I hope that every one of those crooks cops a plea, and dumps everything he knows about all the others– until the whole,Continue reading “The Greatest race.”

What we have isn’t politics.

What we have today isn’t Politics. Politics is the election by informed citizens of representatives who will make informed decisions. Decisions based on debate about what is in the best interests of the people as a whole. What should our society’s rules be? How should we divvy up our financial and intellectual resources? What weContinue reading “What we have isn’t politics.”
