I wonder. How do we get vibrant youths in a culture of lies, of fear and intimidation? How do we have vibrant youths in a culture of silence?
Who are these people who say they love chess and go around promoting the game by telling others that chess opens up the mind etc. And then they perpetuate the use of fear by telling the players they cannot explore new ideas on training, kowtow or we ban you etc. Who are these people and what are their lies?
Should we still be looking up to them as our model? Do we tell our kids that they will grow up to be just like them?
What are they really doing? For who's benefit? What do the lies achieve?
