Melissa: Most educational systems involve various degrees of coersion. Satoru: Yeah. If we have to coerce others to learn, perhaps something is wrong with our teaching. Melissa: Learning should be naturally fun and engaging. Satoru: Ideally, but many aren't in learning modes. It seems some people need to be prodded to learn. It's naive to think that education can be always pleasant or engaging. Tim: There's a good reason to resist what's often called 'learning'. A lot of 'education' is merely teaching cows how to become hamburgers. Why should anyone tolerate such bull? Liao: Learning something doesn't necessarily mean believing it. We should learn things while criticially questioning them, and change what's possible skillfully. To really change a system, we must first understand it.
