Education Persists

The poster says: "There has been an alarming increase in the number of things I know nothing about."

It's a quote from Ashleigh Brilliant, seen here in the window of the newly-opened School of Life in Bloomsbury. This shop offers access to great minds, town hall meetings, trips, and well-chosen books... all in an effort to provide answers to the hard questions and help you live a fulfilling life. If you're still struggling to grasp what it is exactly these folks are trying to "sell," their pitch materials provide a spot-on allegory - we used to call institutions purveying such things "religion."
