Why The Village Burns: Empty Solutions, Politics and Lessons From NIU

Robb Allen from Sharp As A Marble is guest blogging for The Line Is Here.

He picked up on a news release issued by a Northern Illiniois University alum, who wrote a book on the unintended consequences of kids growing up learning irresponsible fads, and how young people are being taught their community is responsible for their unhappiness.

Robb picks up the discussion about individual freedoms, reponsibility, and how relying on "the village" to raise children, and continually praising failure only leads to a dilution of success.

Both are nicely written pieces.
