With freedom come choices. Every choice is an opportunity to select the best possible outcome, the one that would make us happiest. More choices lead to more happiness, right? Of course we find the opposite to be true.

《南風窗》(2012年第16期) 每年上政治哲学课,讨论到社会正义问题时,我总爱问学生,你们认为一个人多些钱,是不是就多些自由?很多同学会举手,眼里还有不解,好像说,老师,这还用问啊?有钱,我就可以去旅行,就可以毕业后去外国念书,还可以做许多自己想做的事。我再问,既然如此,穷人是不是较有钱人,少了自由?大家称是。于是我再问,香港连续十八年被美国传统基金会评为全球最自由经济体,但贫富悬殊却极...

Traditional educators, classrooms, and brick-and-mortar schools are no longer necessary to access information. Instead, things like blogs and wikis, as well as remote collaborations and an emphasis on critical thinking skills are the coins of the realm in this new kingdom. Yet the national dialogue on education reform focuses on using technology to update the traditional education model, failing to reassess the fundamental model on which it is built.
