Even as the 1960s moon race inspired the world, we need to understand how unequal the opporttunity to innovate had been - even in the 1960s as many as half the world's people had no access to electricity grids so they got their news of the moon race by word of mouth.

Consider 1000-1500- until the last few years of this period , the known world was Europe-Asia and NE Africa; #BR8 the med sea was the main world trade waterway; places facing this sea increasingly developed win-win trades; moreover #BR7 the west asian border to med sea was the start of an amazing overland relay of traders which stretched all the way to china (the silk road was the greatest overland world trade route ever and to sustain its interfacing markets required positive cross-cultural bridging all along its route. Silks and spices from the Chinese end acted like a positive currency- there was much demand for them whose value naturally went up the further they were merchanted back to Europe. Everyone gained for this trading route- you can read marco polo's diaries- perhaps nowhere invested more in artistic celebrations of being a major hub of positive trade than his hometown venice in europe and the town he was asked to govern for 2 years in china Hangzhou which marco described as the great town of markets in the world.)

What happened towards 1500 that 2 long shipping routes were discovered by north europeans- the new world of the ameriucas to the west (#BR6 N, #BR10 what we now call Latin America), and a way of reaching the @BR2 South Asian coastal Belt (starting with the indian subcontinent) by sailing around africa. A ship captain couldnt affird such a long return voyage unless he goit what trade he wanted- soon this big ships were equipped with gun power and crews were pressganged or even enslaved. Next in the process was colonising. So it was that nations became big by pludering economies of other peoples places. Back in 1500 places economic size was corelated with population. Soon Britain grew at the expense particularly of the Indian subcontiuent. Mainly Britain and France colonised Africa too, Spain andPotrtugal colonised Latin America. North America was settled by a mixyure of Europeans whose declaration of Indendence in 1776 ended any attempt by Britain to colonise America, But we should note that the USA was built on a sort of internal colonisation - natives had theor places taken over and slaves were used to do most of the hard labour. In effect the old war's colonial ways casued the 2 world wars of the fkirst half of the 20th C. From 1946 most of the world's countries regained their independence but starting from (mainly undeveloped states - poverty that the colonia era had gtraped them in).

Ironically whule the UDA came to tghe resuce of the old workld and from 1946 helped relaunch the two biggest losers of world war 2 Germsny and Japan, american (not withstandiong thair family trees origins) had previously had little modern of knowledge of Eurasia but were pulled into peacekeeping and the cold war with russia through the sceond half of the 20th C. Whilst there was some understanding of the extraoerdinary progress japanese enginers made with electornics, civil and other enginnering, the rise and rise of the east and the often difficult bodrers that had been caused by British and Jpoanese colonisation of the region are not deeply studied by most Americans or their media. It should be the best news the world has ever seen that the fifth of the world in chjna tghat closed itself to the world for more than a centiry after Brfits has offered opium as a gtrading currency in 1860 is now as entrepreneurial as anywhere. With over half of tghe world's ;people facikng either the sout asia or east asia coastal belts, the opportunity the east is cfreating to win0pwin gtrade oin line with moore's ever increasing technology should make sustainable youth worlwdie the gfreatesty positive curency-invetsment the human race has ever mapped. But this is not how USA or the block of coungtriues ruled by the Euro have marketed transapfrently. Instead we are caught in the Keynsian crisis of economist not valuing the hippocratic oathes he had published as tghe final chapter of the ngeneral throy of employment money and interest. The 2020s are likely to make the system designs our tech spreads irreversible- will the end game be big brother extinction or little sister sustainability?

I was introduced to Basir Mchawi last night - he works at the amazing John Jay College of Criminal Justice in Manhattan and hosts WBAI Brooklyn's radio show on education at crossroads; javeed introduced me- we first met at the WISE world leading education summit series inspired by my friend sir fazle abed who helped girls develop Bangladesh since 1972; the un's antonio guterres has asked all educators  WISE can find to stage a learning revolution summit at the united nations general assembly this year sept 2018; i met Reverent Alvin of Baltimore's Druid Hill Union Baptist Community (best known for nurturing Thurgood Marshall but also black girls first social justice movement circa 1880) a few years after meeting Rosa' Park's lawyer  Fred Gray and Tuskegee's community leader at a Muhammad Uunus celebration in Atlanta produced by the families of Martin Luther King, Ted Turner (CNN- UN Foundation) and Jimmy Carter

I am very confused as to where education world in america is going but thought you all might want to know of each other; we are aware of quite a few graduate students in columnbia university and elsewhere in new york region who would like to help. Our student alumni circles are  due to sampling 2000 yunus books and 10000 dvds since 2008 - the bronx video below was one of our attempts to create students unions that took back community action learning -  we need something far more empowering to viralise - but what?  The Collaboration Cafe 

Amy (now at Columbia) is a chinese storyteller who grew up in Mao's villages and who knows Medgar Evers students and had been trained in usa and china by  Harrison Owen inventor of open space technology to open space large scale action meetings but for reasons beyond her control after showing michael moores film  the top people at MEC decided not to go further in letting students explore their own solutions. Amy's friend Maurice is voluntee youth ambassador at vatican university and Premio Internazionale Giuseppe Sciacca

We know the new number 2 at Rockefeller Foundation who is looking for something big to do but he's a jouralist most used to talking to heads of billionnaire foundations so he's got rather abrupt way of dealing

Basir Mchawi has woven a distinguished career as an educator, activist and communicator. Having been a teacher and administrator in both public schools and independent Black schools, Mchawi has had an opportunity to stretch the limits of what can be done for our children.

Whether making the concerns of communities of color audible in the halls of the central bureaucracy or changing the character of public education by creating smaller community centered schools, Mchawi has always been in the forefront of the struggle for quality education.

In the mid and late 1970's, Basir Mchawi served as editor and publisher of Black News, the innovative monthly news magazine of Brooklyn's EAST organization. As producer and host of View from the EAST, a WLIB public affairs radio program, Mchawi helped transform talk radio in New York.

In the early 1980's Mchawi came to WBAI to produce a series of political and cultural programs including the ground-breaking 16-hour, The World According to John Coltrane. In 1996, Education at the Crossroads was first heard on Thursday evenings as part of the regular WBAI weekly lineup.

In the strange times we currently find ourselves in, Basir Mchawi continues to "agitate, educate and organize."I am currently working on developing a cadre of other producers and hosts for Education at the Crossroad. I am especially interested in bringing young people into community radio on both sides of the microphone.
