While surfing I came across a website with the name Critical Thinking. Quoting from their website:

Critical Thinking is a non-hierarchical, apolitical, collaborative research and education project that analyses the current political economy to identify fundamental flaws and potential levers for change. The organisation aims to understand the historical context of issues from different perspectives and explore their current and future impacts on social cohesion, inequality, individual liberty and civilisation as we know it. Critical Thinking has developed a unified theory of political economy and proposes action to create a freer, fairer world.

From what I saw — I need to explore it more — they do a good job of explaining some critical conomic issues in an understandable way. Check it out. This looks like material we can use to educate ourselves and others.

    Thought this looked promising too, Lambert. Then I browsed around the site and found it quite replete with some of the worst kind of sectarian conspiracy theorists, e.g. climate change denialism (there is no consensus, CO2 does not cause global warming, IPCC just in it for the money etc etc), fawning interviews with butcher and torturer Assad, praise of murder-and-rape despot Duterte, 9/11 conspiracy theories...'Resources' only provided links to two mainly conspiracist orgs...Hope their economic musings are a little better... Pity.

      Pity indeed. I always hope to find a treasure trove of usable resources somewhere. Guess we’ll have to do the hard work ourselves, whether selecting them while separating the chaff from the grain, or creating them afresh.

    Bloody oath.

      Bloody oafs. We must separate the chuffs from the oafs.

      And critical that we think, I think! Things are critical!
