Education - Prepared Dumbness
Commercially Prepared Dumbness
Do good ordinary people send their children to school to get smart? But what modern schooling teaches is dumbness, it's a religious idea gone out of control. You don't have to accept that though to realize that this kind of economy would be jeopardized by too many smart people who understand too much. And that's a great thought, not into name-calling here; but think about it, good old fashion dumbness used to be simple ignorance. Now it is transformed from ignorance into permanent mathematical categories and relatives stupidity like; gifted and talented mainstream in special ed categories in which learning is rationed for the good of the system of order. Dumb people are no longer merely ignorant. Now they are indoctrinated; their minds condition with substantial doses a commercially prepared information.
