What use is it to pile task on task and prolong the days of labor, ifat the close the chief object is left unattained? It is not the fault ofthe teachers--they work only too hard already. The combined folly of acivilization that has forgotten its own roots is forcing them to shoreup the tottering weight of an educational structure that is built uponsand. They are doing for their pupils the work which the pupils themselvesought to do. For the sole true end of education is simply this: to teachmen how to learn for themselves; and whatever instruction fails to do thisis effort spent in vain.

Those who noted that the anarchists seemed like a "paramilitary organization" were correct -- but they were a paramilitary organization, and not a secret army of Breitbart News editors and KKK members engaging on a massive false-flag operation to discredit Berkeley -- an outrageous conspiracy theory that would be utterly laughable were it not repeated .

The week before the conference, I canceled everything on my calendar other than bath time with my kids. Instead of writing and reading and working, I hired an acting coach, Jim, and rehearsed all day, every day, Monday through Saturday. We started by sitting on a sofa in the back of the high school auditorium Jim had secured for our sessions. I told him, a bit weepily, that I didn’t want to be a performer. I explained that I love to chat one-on-one, curled up with my heels kicked off. But standing on a stage freaked me out. Jim, a former stand-up comedian and Shakespearean actor, somehow understood.

The day before the conference, Chris Anderson, its curator, and June Cohen, the executive producer of TED Media, gathered this year’s roster of about 60 presenters in the darkened theater for a welcome and briefing. I expected an assembly of larger-than-life figures with stentorian voices, but it felt more like an awkward gathering of intellectuals at a faculty breakfast. I probably wasn’t the only one trying to figure out how to get onstage without falling down or throwing up. My fellow orators hadn’t come to TED to exude charisma (though plenty of them did just that). They were there to say what they thought, too.

When we think about the remarkably early age at which the young men went up to university in, let us say, Tudor times, and thereafter were held fit to assume responsibility for the conduct of their own affairs, are we altogether comfortable about that artificial prolongation of intellectual childhood and adolescence into the years of physical maturity which is so marked in our own day? To postpone the acceptance of responsibility to a late date brings with it a number of psychological complications which, while they may interest the psychiatrist, are scarcely beneficial either to the individual or to society. The stock argument in favor of postponing the school-leaving age and prolonging the period of education generally is there is now so much more to learn than there was in the MiddleAges. This is partly true, but not wholly. The modern boy and girl arecertainly taught more subjects--but does that always mean that they actuallyknow more?
