ISF-UNESCO SHORT STORY COMPETITION EXTENDED TO DECEMBER 31ST!

The good news is that hundreds of children around the world have entered our short story competition. French, Japanese, Indian, Moroccan...you name it. But with schools closed during lockdown, we’ve not reached as many young budding writers as we’d hoped. And they deserve the opportunity to take part! So ISF and UNESCO have decided to extend the deadline to midnight on December 31, 2020. And we need you to spread the word! Tell your children, grandchildren, local schools, teachers, the kids next door... The winners stand to receive a free iPad, get their stories published in a special edition ISF hardback, and take part in an online awards ceremony hosted by UNESCO.

People are conditioned not only by deliberate indoctrination, but also by systems whose proponents themselves are ignorant of the need for safeguards to prevent conditioning. People are also conditioned by a constellation of experiences. In most human societies, unanimity of thought has been arrived at by an unrecognised conditioning process in which virtually all the society’s institutions may be branches of the conditioning process.

This information is neither new nor necessarily exciting. But it is essential. What is new about it is that it has been concisely and effectively revealed in studies made in the West, notably since the end of the Korean war. If you do not know or believe the fore-going, you will either have to accept it as a working hypothesis, or else leave all attempts at studying other matters aside until you have caught up with this information in the generally available sources on the subject. In such a case your basic information is incomplete, and your prospects of progress are as limited in a higher sense as if you were trying to become an academic but were not yet literate.
