  1. Isn’t there something a bit odd in lauching a revolution in the name of talent? Look at other interviews and it appears that the hero here is Paul McCartney – he discovered his talent and got rich. Is that the idea? We each need to find the McCartney within? That sounds to me as if it taps into the culture of “Britain’s Got Talent” – not a great platform for a revolution. And what’s more, it’s a culture that might well spread unhappiness and discontent, rather than pointing the way to a New Disorder in which everyone flourishes and achieves perfect contentment. Lot’s of jobs don’t need any particular talent. How are those people to feel?

    Any meaningful revolution needs a dream of a better society, and a careful analysis of what needs to be removed to allow that society to come into being. Does Sir Ken have such a dream? Does he have such an analysis? I have my doubts, and I have expressed them here: http://tornhalves.blogspot.it/2012/09/ken-robinson-learning-revolution.html
