New Model: National Deaf School!

Jay Krieger proposes a radical new concept in Deaf education -- moving away from our Pre-Civil War state school model toward a modern and private National Deaf School model.

Are you moral?

Jay Krieger discusses moral judgement, using several examples. He explains that judgement are made by either by reason/rationale or by emotion. He thought that if we understood how we judge a bit better, we could use that knowledge as a tool to our advantage in winning over people who may be opposed to some of our struggles.

Identity vs Symptom

Click here if the video above is blank

Using a dwarf-based scene from the "House" TV series on DVD, Jay Krieger shows that many of our personal and community struggles parallels so much with theirs. We all have our own adversities to overcome. Although it is not Jay's intention to change anyone's views and opinions on any issues, Jay hopes we set aside our beliefs, just for a brief moment, and view this vLog with an open mind. You may find it quite interesting to see that we are not unique.
