Margaret Mead once said, “Children must be taught how to think, not what to think.”
Public “Education” has become indoctrination
People are not being educated they’re being tested for levels of obedience. School is about memorizing what you are told short term and repeating it. The bulk of how you are graded is by completely daily busy work.
When children start going to school, not only they spend most of their day in the classroom, but they start being conditioned to the 8 to 5 schedule which will be the blueprint of their future.
Let’s highlight the main points that the education system is very successful in imprinting on the minds of our children:
- Truth comes from Authority
- Intelligence is the ability to remember and repeat
- Accurate memory and repetition are rewarded
- Non compliance is punished
- Conform: Intellectually and socially
“The biggest atrocity of all is to indoctrinate our children into a system that does not value their creative expression, nor encourage their unique abilities.” –Benjamin Greene
This world for the past hundred or so years has become more and more industrialized. People in power seek to control you. And they do so by giving you a set course in life, making you follow a set of rules, and making you chant.
Chanting is just another method of indoctrination. They channel that inner animal instinct in you to howl when everyone else is howling. They want you to think the same way that they are thinking. They make you say the same things the rest of the group is saying. And if you don’t, they make you feel left out.
“The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn.” –Alvin Toffler
There are many of us who don’t feel the need to be industrialized. We are individuals and we choose to think for ourselves. So break out of the mold, and do something different.
