A global education for a global age
cheap moncler jackets sale Last week I wrote moncler sale outlet in op ed in the Yale Daily News in support of Yale new college at the National University of Singapore. It is not the caricature one sometimes reads about. Singapore is open to the world, embraces free Moncler Outlet markets and is routinely ranked as one of the least corrupt countries in the world. cheap moncler jackets sale
cheap moncler jackets has also become more open over the last ten years. In fact, it is to enhance and enrich this process that Singapore has invited Yale to help create a liberal arts college. There moncler outlet store will be differences moncler outlet in perspectives among students and faculty, foreigners and locals, but that makes it an ideal place to engage with issues cheap moncler outlet of democracy and liberalism. I can imagine a fascinating seminar on democracy that would be much feistier in Singapore than at Yale precisely because there will be those who take positions quite critical of what is received wisdom in the West. cheap moncler jackets
has a great deal to learn from America, and NUS has a great deal to learn from moncler outlet online Yale. That why they have engaged in this collaboration with us. But it is a form of parochialism bordering on chauvinism on the part of supposedly liberal and open minded intellectuals not to see that we too, in America and at Yale, can monlcer down jackets learn something from Singapore. In fact, together, Yale and the National University of Singapore can teach the world a new way to think about education in a globalized world.

I don know what to think about it.
so called test meritocracy are usually another word for class system, where only those allowed to pass will pass, the other will simply not having been given the answers keeping it all in the family.
I was troubled to find cheap moncler sale Singapore is almost like a dictatorship. That Lee family been ruling almost since the autonomy, with only a short interuption when a friend ruled.
moncler sale outlet Also it seems like another of those rich peoples haven, a trick for US millionaires and billionaires to get double nationality and put thir taxes there while they benefit from here. It a probably a tax haven for the rich, yet another method of taxes evasion moncler sale outlet
So forgivve me if I am a little sceptical.

moncler outlet jackets Now, I not sure studying confucius cheap moncler is 100% a good thing, but at least studying the real confucius will allow to identify where the chinese are editing the original to turn it into propaganda. moncler outlet jackets
moncler outlet store But overall confuscius was still what I would call cheap moncler jackets a philosopher locked inside a dictatorship. I am certain he was restricted in his capacity to express his thoughts. moncler outlet store
cheap moncler coats Overall I more impressed by ideas in religions like budhism, hindhuism, Islam and Judaism. I christian, so I spare you christianity from the list. cheap moncler coats
cheap moncler outlet The fact is, perhaps because of the successive conquests of the mongols and manchus, the east had it advanced stopped dead in it track; much like the west during the medieval era. But we two other advantages. On one side, greek and romans had toyed with ideas like the republic. and on the other side core christian values eventually led to humanism. cheap moncler outlet
moncler sale It sort of funny because all this is also part of budhism, but for some reason it didn yield results in the east. Well that reason might be indeed mongols and manchus. europe was spared that. and we ended up beating the vickings. And by pure luck even the Mayars settled down. moncler sale
moncler outlet sale Don get me wrong. In it appearance confuscianism seems good. However in practice, historicaly, it was used in the imperial courts along with taoism. the chief moncler sale obcession of chinese emperor was immortality. and what confucianism define as good isn nececarily what we ean in the western world, but more a matter of behavior much like in 18th century england, where you don ask what goes beyond closed doors. moncler outlet sale
At the end the Han dynasty got quite corrupt, because the emperor became little more than a puppet as the generals and eunuch held real power.
Also the tests https://www.moncleroutletsite.com of the imperial bureaucy consited mostly of poetry!!!
moncler jacket sale That said, doesn mean confuscianism cannot be turned into something good. But as far as I know it fail to go in depth about good and evil and what altruism means. You know one can corrupt concepts and think flogging a slave is for his own goods, not too long ago, in the southern states, this happened in the us, done by verry christians peoples who believed black peoples had no souls. moncler jacket sale
Even today peoples love to misuse religion, but usually you can find a verse from the bible or the koran that shut them up. It not that hard to diffuse a jihad or a crusade with the right buy moncler jackets words.
