（英国夏山学校）freedom individual interests and needs
Summerhill, a school founded in 1921 by A.S. Neill who is a famed educator of England, holds the education idea of freedom. In this school, students are not enforced to attend classes; children make rules by themselves and no one will restrict them; the tests are not compulsory and students have never been worried about their marks. Each teacher teaches only one student, so when students graduate at their 16, they will be confident, tolerant and more talented.

Oceanographer Jacques Cousteau has warned:” Mankind has probably done more damage to the Earth in the twenties century than in all previous human history.” Likewise the environmental organization Worldwatch Institute concluded in 1989. By the end of the next decade the die will pretty well be cast. As the world enters the twenty-first century, the community of nations either will have relied and turned back the threatening trends, or environmental deterioration and social disintegration will be feeding on each other.

A spectacular recent example of technology enabling us to recover lost chapters of our human past is the discovery of the Great Wall of China.

After observing the daily life of food gatherers in various parts of the world, anthropologist R.B. Lee concludes:” A truly communal life is often dismissed as a utopian ideal, to be endorsed in theory but unattainable in practice. But the evidence for foraging peoples tells us otherwise. A sharing way of life is not only possible but has actually existed in many parts of the world and over long periods long periods of time.”
