My mom’s got the History Channel en Español on and it’s really surreal

Hearing the doblaje over the original English that hasn’t been muted

Though I think the worst part is actually understanding how bad the translations are

(The same thing happened when I watched this interview Thiddles did in as much Spanish as he could [which was a fair amount] where the host took it upon himself to translate what the man was saying, and ohmygosh he kept doing it wrong; THE TRANSLATION FOR FIERCE IS NOT FUERTE, IT’S FEROZ

I suppose it shouldn’t have have surprised me, because it’s Univision, BUT STILL)

"You can’t just change the race of cultural icons like Captain America! It’s an important part of their identity and message!"

Jesus [Yeshua of Nazareth]: Ah yes.

Jesus: Can’t imagine who would do that.

Jesus: What a shame.

The greatest obstacle to being heroic is the doubt whether one may not be going to prove one’s self a fool; the truest heroism is, to resist the doubt; and the profoundest wisdom, to know when it ought to be resisted, and when to be obeyed.

As Abbott sees it, the need for reflection has never been greater. Spurred by technological advances, “civilization is on the cusp of a metamorphosis,” he says, that will lead either to societal collapse and chaos, or to a resurgence of liberty, community, and ethics. Either way, schools are stuck in the past: The emphasis has been on feeding children static information and rewarding them for doing only what they’re told, instead of helping them develop the transferable, higher-order skills they need to become life-long learners and thrive in an uncertain future.

This approach — a product of the Industrial Age, which relied on compliant factory workers and mass consumption — promotes weakness rather than strength. It has become even more regimented (and thus more disempowering) in recent years due to a lack of trust. Adults who feel hard-pressed to predict or control their own destinies, and who feel confused about the “big issues of life,” Abbott notes, are less willing to give children the time and space they need to shape their own futures.
