Educate Yourself!

I have a vision of what education could or should become in the modern age. This vision does not originate with me however. This vision was first pointed out to me by Buckminster Fuller; an engineer, author, designer, and futurist who foresaw the need for a world model wwith ethical sustainability as its core.
 
I pay particular attention to this contention:

"We have reached the point where we are now possessed of sufficient information for each individual human to dare to exercise the option to ``make it'' rather than having to depend on the decisions of an educated elite."

It is to this idea, the idea that one can and should become responsible for one's own education and for also for the education of others with ultimate survivability being paramount that this project - rabble resources - is dedicated.
