Speaking of libertarian/Austrian chicks:
Notice she didn't even bother to get a real copy of The General Theory...that was just a piece of paper taped to a page in some other book.
This is really my kind of girl.
Here I must repeat a common response to videos of women posted on certain internet forums:
I looked for one before I made this one and didn't find any. But if you think you can find the original post and would like to link to it, be my guest. And until then we might just ask everyone who had never seen it before to post a notice of such in this thread.
I think it was in one of the low content threads - but I'm sure it's new to most people.
She's made a sequel:
I only remember because I posted it:
Btw, Stephan Kinsella did an article on Montessori schooling and said, "And don’t forget this great home-made video, I’m in Love with Friedrich Hayek, by Dorian Electra, a recent graduate of School of the Woods, an AMS Montessori K-12 school here in Houston."
Anarcho-libertarian:Btw, Stephan Kinsella did an article on Montessori schooling and said, "And don’t forget this great home-made video, I’m in Love with Friedrich Hayek, by Dorian Electra, a recent graduate of School of the Woods, an AMS Montessori K-12 school here in Houston."
Wasn't aware of the article, but I would have assumed there'd be something like that. And if I had to guess I would have gone with the Montessori angle, as I found out she was a student through this video interview. And I even would have guessed Kinsella, because he's the most vocal about Montessori, and he's in Houson (which I recognized Electra was as well because of the Houston landmarks in the Hayek video).
I am sure we are all attached to our own methods of schooling, but I do not think roaming freely does much to help children.
I do like the idea of teaching sounds before names.
What I think might be a good idea from personal observation is teaching a phonetic language before English. Why?
1) Spelling in Italian or Bulgarian, for example, is a piece of cake. It's all phonetic! This leads to faster times in learning how to read and write, and hence access to much more material at an earlier age
2) Learning English after another language is not really that difficult. Once you get past the spelling (which is much simplified after you already know how to read any language at all), English is a piece of cake
3) Learning Italian as a first language would be extremely beneficial, as some commonplace words in Italian are more complex words in English. For example, the English "amorous" and the Italian "amoroso." The Italian word is literally translated as the English "loving". To learn to speak everyday Italian, you must know this word. However, the cognate in English is an advanced word. But since you already know it in Italian, you have a gigantic advantage.
