“In the conditions of modern life the rule is absolute, the race which does not value trained intelligence is doomed. Not all your heroism, not all your social charm, not all your wit, not all your victories on land or at sea, can move back the finger of fate.” – Whitehead.
True intelligence is not fashioned through the element of fun in teaching and learning. Fun only sows a playful attitude towards learning which will reap its terrible harvest later. As such, I stick only to humour to enliven the teaching and training.
How countries are managed and run today reflect their education system. If it is an education system that thrives on fun and the negation of intelligence, the said country will experience chaos in one form or another as the population has been deprived of proper mental development. The ruler and the ruled will be devoid of reason to settle disputes internally and externally. Doesn’t it show in some countries today?
