While this is true, the article by the Atlantic does appear to have some more interesting substance. Sorry that the submission doesn't grab you. Those who are interested in Neuroscience, such as myself, find the article at least a bit more entertaining.
Perhaps if we consider how we are approaching the mind in how it receives information and writes to long term memory, we can educate in a way that is more effective. While some people assume that this can be used as a big brother tool to train people to be robots, I see this as a tool to create an intelligent society or at least a curious society.
While subby and the Atlantic talk of discipline, I see this in a whole different manner of speaking. Then again, I see the writing of the original direction of the article, be misleading as well. Is subby to blame?
