Common Sense is...

To See. To Hear

To Look. To Understand.

To Observe. To Reflect.

Satu said...

The first 5 points seems to be ok.
>> To Reflect.
I feel reflect does not help individuality of people!

Sudarshan said...

These points seem pretty simple, don't they?

However,the irony is that common sense is found uncommonly in common people lol...:-)

Hi Rathna, you too.
It is not just that the educated are free, it is that slavery has been consistent with keeping people uneducated.

Denying access to free primary education limits access to secondary education
Denying access to free secondary education limits access to higher education
Denying free access to higher education is 'selection' by ability to pay

Unless one believes ability to pay is the result of Natural Selection, - then it is 'created' privilege
