“The Late Mark Twain on Surviving the 21st Century” is produced for Middle and High School Social Science Classes by award winning playwright, veteran US Civics Teacher and Historian Paul D Rosa, born in Castro Valley, California in 1961.

This no-cost educational mini-series, complete with free transcripts, debate guides, and study guides is designed to shake things up and get your students thinking, talking, and debating about just where and what the “lunatic top 1% or Toppies” (as Twain calls them) are steering the people of the earth in this next century? 

 

As the top 1% desire utopian bliss for themselves, what is instore for the bottom feeding rest of us? What is really distracting 99% of us from fixing the mess the top 1% are peddling?

Is the Late Mark Twain right? Is he wrong? Or, is he just one crazy-old-dead-genius? Let’s let your students debate and decide? As they do, we promise you one heck of a ride at yathink.org!

"Preamble"

7 min 46 sec

Series creator and producer Paul Davis explains how honest news died in 1988 when then US President Ronald Reagan vetoed the extension of the "Fairness Doctrine" established in 1949. "1988 was the birth of Fake News, the death of honest news reporting, and the year the "big brother" horrors of George Orwell's book 1984 starting becoming our sad reality." "Surviving the 21st Century" is all about this and more.                                                07/25/2020
