Now this is the Bitcoin generation.

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

I am slightly offended by the suggestion that kids are hard to teach because we watch too much youtube.

That just means that we need to adapt the teaching methods to the audience.

I am not sure that it means that kids are hard to teach.  There is a dynamic of attention span.  The attention span for listening to a lecture is certainly decreasing.  This is due to age of media.  It is not to be seen as a put down, it is more about the reality of our age.

Humans should be able to concentrate, focus on a subject or task for more than 10 minutes.  Smiley  It is only reality if we permit the general loss of skills like attention to detail.

Yep.

Some people would like children to have a nice long attention span so they'll sit still for a 40 year career in a factory.

I think the short attention span is an evolutionary advantage, we switch jobs more so we are more likely to innovate something worthwhile rather than slave for our Bourgeoisie overlords for the rest of our lives

What's the point of learning every last detail of a technology if the technology will be obsolete after 10,5,3 years anyhow? Transferrable skills, meta-skills, and flexibility, that''s what you need to survive in a double exponential growth, high tech economy.
