"In retrospect, it was actually quite a good curriculum, but it was very
dull because it made absolutely no sense to us -- there was no context
for all this stuff."
Chris Bennett ---- 29 June 2001
What an incredibly silly sentence. It's logically inconsistent as well.
It has no intelligent meaning whatsoever.
Pure Adolescent Twaddle.
You're right, Renia. We have several intellectually 'bent',
mal-educated, generations to deal with ---- essentially schlock ----
damaged goods in the marketplace.
And then we have this bromide from Bennett:
"We did an intro course on historical methodology, the French
Revolution, Europe in the 19th century, China and Japan in the 19th and
20th (up to 1949/37), rise of Nazism, causes of 1st and 2nd world war,
Russian revolution and Stalin, and UK in the 1930s (I don;t [sic]
remember much about this one, it was pretty boring).
I imagine Bennett finds all sorts of quite interesting things
"boring" ---- people often carp about that, when they don't understand
what's going on.
