The existing education system is based on the denial of access to knowledge, which creates today a key crisis for education, where people will simply bypass it for more effective methods. These will be enabled by a distributed learning network, based on the model of the semantic web, where learning resources can be freely shared. They will be accessed by a 'learning object browser' which individuals will be able to use to structure their own education. Proposal.
