Re: Not a panacea

How do you think the fundamentals are going to be built, if not through educating people to build them for themselves?

There is no point to providing access to clean water, if you do not educate people how to best use it and how to keep it clean.

There is no point to providing primary healthcare, if you do not educate nurses and doctors to staff it.

There is no point to tractors, or the means to fix them, if you do not educate mechanics.

Education is the long term solution to a million problems. Internet access is an excellent route to education.
