Yohanes Chandra Ekajaya Writes with civilization
Changes of human on Earth encounter. The period of human civilization runs alternates, as each passing day becomes night. An observer sociologists society Yohanes Chandra Ekajaya said that each time civilization experienced ups and downs, sometimes on a certain period of human civilization experienced a glory. On the other hand, there are also times where there is human civilization that is experiencing a slump. We can learn from the history of human civilization, which experienced a heyday, so his name till now remains a reference to even be a “vitamin” in the conduct of human life.
Greece is known as one of the highly advanced civilization. They gave birth to many intellectuals that generates theories in life, be it in the areas of political, social, or legal philosophy. Similarly, the civilization of Egypt, Babylonia, China and Rome. They recognized as their human civilization with a wide range of theories that include all aspects of life. No less remarkably, too, namely the Islamic civilization.Islamic civilization writings of scholars at that time still used until now and witness that the Islamic civilization never progress. One of the fundamental causes of civilization that advanced nations are growing a tradition of reading and writing at that time.
What writing it? How can a nation be making progress. According to Yohanes Chandra Ekajaya, the notion of writing as writing is a way of making the letters (numbers and so on) and pens (pencils, chalk, etc.), the kids are learning, gave birth to the mind or feelings (such as fabricated, make a letter). If we look at the notion of writing is a way that can give birth to a thought, idea or feeling, then it is natural when a nation’s traditions of reading and writing it strong, then the nation will become a developed nation.
What about the condition of our nation? The Pact concern the international ranking of literacy, the Most Literate Nations in the World, published the Central Connecticut State University. Indonesia was ranked 60th out of a total of 61 countries in terms of reading and writing. Maybe this is causing our country during 71 years of independence have not been moving towards developed countries, because of the culture of reading and writing which is still very low. So the thoughts, ideas or feelings that could be used to solve problems that envelop this nation is still very limited.
To correct the condition, said Yohanes Chandra Ekajaya, it is not an easy matter. Then from where to start? Improvements that can be started from an environment that is familiar with reading and writing activities, namely, the environment of the school, the campus and the boarding school. Especially for teachers, lecturers and scholars could be the leading edge of garda pouring thoughts, ideas or feelings correspond to background disciplines or their education. It would be very beautiful if such a thing can be done. It will be a lot of ideas or notions.
