News - and how they "finish" us off

In my article on natural creativity, I mentioned
that children are fundamentally normal, curious and creative.
So why is it lost on us?

Well we've mostly all heard of it,
that there are more no's than yes's in childhood.
Don't do this, don't do that and so on.
That can be painful and put a huge brake on your drive.

But I don't believe that this alone is the cause.
It gets even worse later on.
Basically, people have a tendency to do
what is socially approved.
So if parents use too many no's, this is only a
(possibly even a small) part of the dilemma. In kindergarten
and at school, things get even tighter.
Who hasn't experienced the situation where the teacher not only wanted the solution,
but also a specific solution?
Pupils who were good at collecting and reproducing all the information
got better grades and were popular with parents and
teachers, so we learn to be like that.
Adapt or revolt.
However, revolt is not creative, but only the opposite pole.

Of course, every system only trains what serves to maintain the system.
At least that's what it believes.
However, excessive adaptation always leads to political and
economic disaster.

But what kind of teacher can stand creativity, real creativity?
Didn't the majority of them become teachers because they
feared the insecurity of independence?
If someone has become a teacher out of idealism, we can imagine
what support the school system provides for this.

If a child then runs amok and injures or kills others,
what is the solution? More control of admission to school?

The real causes are hardly ever addressed.
On the contrary, the news makes everything even worse.

News?! What should we be guided by?

There are now enough studies, and the vernacular knows,
an accident rarely comes alone, that there are always "repetitions" after plane crashes,
rampages and other accidents.
Science says that it is not the fact itself that causes the
repetition, but the reporting of it.
"Socially proven" also seems to work here,
because the studies have shown that the "copycats" did it
because they could feel socially comparable with the other situation,
the other perpetrator.

So it is the reporting that exacerbates the problem.
So if it has been proven today that we follow the news
, how can we be creative?
The main difference between the news and the news is
in which country the bus crashed today,
where a house burned down today, where jobs were lost today
, who got divorced today, what happened today..........

So the no's and yes's from parents are just the first beginning
of suppressing our naturalness. Then school
(do you know the song "Working Class Hero" by John Lennon)
then university, then work.....and the news.....

We tell the child: don't ask so many questions
(that's why we need seminars on questioning techniques)

We tell the child: don't copy
(which is why we need seminars on teamwork)

We tell the child: Money is an adult thing
(that's why we have social welfare)

We tell the child: you are not learning for school, for life
(that's why we have Hartz IV)

Isn't it significant that Germany, the land of poets and
thinkers, now offers job centers to solve unemployment?
You know what job means? Just over broke!
It has nothing to do with a profession as a vocation.
And now they say we need more education. I wonder what they mean?

What should we be guided by?
If there are no positive visions in the news,
but only the "diseases", then we are bound to become ill and dependent.

Also pay attention to
what and how your friends and acquaintances inform you!

If there is only crisis and not an equal amount of positive future constructive possibilities,
then it is worse than the comparatively few no's in childhood.
The many no's afterwards are probably worse, because the child still had the hope that things would get better after the age of 18.

Are you still dreaming? Are you still looking forward to the next few years of your life?

How many private alternatives, financial and professional opportunities do you see at the moment?
Don't think that you can't learn what Hans doesn't learn
. We don't lose the ability to learn.
We just get out of practice.
Hans is usually just too lazy to develop new neural pathways.
The brain can do that! Even into old age!!!

As you know, crisis = opportunity!

Therefore, once again, pay attention to what you hear,
especially from family and friends.
You will inevitably also be surrounded by what you let into yourself.
Law of themodynamics. A hot drop in cold water, how long will it stay hot?
This is true for children and also for us,
no matter what age we are!

Here is an example of creativity:

You cannot change the "news" right away,
but you can determine what you think, which information you choose,
and, above all, what you do.

That's real freedom! Keep yourself healthy!

Then the children will have role models again and something
to follow.
