The values of our culture are all upside down and turned around



   I live in a society that has everything all wrong, all turned 
   around, all upside down.  By the use of time tests in school it 
   penalizes the conscientious student.  The right way would be a 
   system that favored the conscientious student, that encouraged the 
   trait of conscientiousness (the conscientious person is God's 
   person --- he is a person who does what is right just because he 
   knows that is the right thing to do --- he is faithful to his own 
   inner self).  Our school system emphasizes talent over personal 
   merit, natural ability over superior personal character traits, 
   quantity over quality.  Instead of emphasizing such things as 
   natural talent, IQ, etc. the right way would be to emphasize 
   personal character traits such as honesty, conscientiousness, 
   perseverance and hard work.  The values of our school system and 
   culture as a whole are all all upside down and turned around from 
   what they ought to be.
