Follow me on Twitter at  strangstu Stu Strang
Stu Strang was a minister in the confines of organized religion throughout the late eighties and most of the nineties. Along that journey, he became increasingly aware that not only was the institution of religion not helping to facilitate the LOVE COMMANDMENT of Jesus, but was actively working against it. He saw religion as a cloaking device designed to take innocent people into a cheap imitation of what was "true, good and right." Stu's personal memories and poetry reflects upon his process of leaving a generic land filled with lies, deceit, and perversions of many sorts... to enter the raw, unbridled forgotten planet of transparency and connection to fellow human beings.

My experiences as a public school student drove me into teaching with a mind for reform. Yet my experiences as a teacher drove me to a complete rethinking of what it means to be educated. Foremost in my mind is the question of purpose—what John Dewey terms “the aims of education”—and how to revive a truly learner-centered approach to schooling. I have been influenced by many thinkers, especially Tsunesaburo Makiguchi, an early 20th century Japanese education reformer. His theory of soka, or “value-creation” profoundly influences my work.

They’ve seen the stories in the newspapers, read about the bankrupt car companies and corrupt city officials, the horrific crime news, and spent time with the picture books and videos of The Ruins. A few have even tramped around the old Packard plant where they bump into other tourists with cameras. I tell them, it’s hard to say. You want to explain. But when you begin to isolate this thing or that, it falls apart. Because this Detroit, as sick and troubled and worn out as it is, is a living thing populated by real people.
