Passing on family values is the purpose of values-based planning. Exodus gives one pause. Probably there is no greater curse in America today than family values. That insight is what drove Tutor and I from the Wealth Bondage conference room to the Dumpster in these mean streets. It is not enough to serve the values of ignorant and parochial families, no matter how rich. At some point one must practice the liberal arts to open these closed fundamentally misguided minds. Socratic Q & A, the pranks of Diogenes, satire and pro bono spankings all are means to the same end, helping the Saved to get saved. We can't send them all to Exeter, no matter how much money is raised. But we can bring a bit of Exeter to Exodus. As public education wanes, to be replaced with charter schools, religious schools, and vouchers, we had better educate one another in the streets, since unless we do, we will become a country of warring factions, raised from birth in narrowness and prejudice.
