While I was waiting for newspapers to get in the mood to download, I thought more about a way of framing the issues.* People like me are into means, while those that deem us idiots (TTDUI) are into ends. We would rather be constructively creative than have creation thrust on us. We deem the greatest acquisition to be character; talents, education, and resources being great add-ons. TTDUI’s would argue the greatest gifts are stuff, and one kills children if they don’t want to give them lots of it for free.
*Rephrasing is a tool of communication used by educators before all this national programming started scaring away qualified math and science teachers.
