WRITTEN BY Thom Nickels
Higher education has lost its purpose.
How long will this fad last?
Why are they talking like that? And booking people with nothing to say?
Spirituality has lost out to price and an ill-deserved "pro-environment" reputation.
Men and boys feeling devalued seems to be having a deadly effect.
A large number of converts are appearing in certain communities.
