So I guess the first thing that I would say to a time traveler or alien is that our species survives through attachment, and in particular the early attachment between parents and their offspring. It isn’t just a nice strategy or a moral strategy — it’s in our genetics.

But what if the highest and best purpose of school were in fact something else? And if it were, how would we even advocate for it in a world where everyone knows what school is “supposed” to do?
Inspired by the challenge, we launched an experiment. We posted an anonymous manifesto challenging the prevailing idea of school. Then we asked the world for comment. We were not naive enough to think that our document would launch some new school reform movement – weren’t even sure it was right. Instead, we intended to study the debate generated by the manifesto and distill what it had to teach us about the way our society talks about school.
Eventually, when we’ve said “no” to enough yummy food, drinks, potential purchases, and forced ourselves to do enough unwanted chores, we find ourselves in a state called ego-depletion, where we don’t have any more energy to make good decisions.
