CALLING A SPADE A BLOODY SHOVEL DEPT...
There are no longer winners or losers; there is no longer good or bad, right or wrong, black or white - or at least that's the way it often seems in this bright new world of the 21st century. Excellence may still be rewarded, but so also, all too often, is mediocrity.
One of the reasons why the standard of children's literacy, as an example, is so appalling today is that everything created for them is aimed at their level. That’s why many of them never progress to a higher one – they aren’t enticed or encouraged or motivated to. If you give them nothing but inferior quality, that’s what they learn to appreciate. But what if children like it? Children have the capacity to like whatever is put in front of them, but that's no excuse for giving them substandard fare.
