3063 The dire state of education is here to stay.

Sunday, August 22, 2010

"Silence is the virtue of fools."
-- Sir Francis Bacon --


"Everybody" natters about improving education. 'Tain't gonna happen, folks.

The forces that rule the world like stupidity.

Stupidity makes the masses easy to control, since, if they are not capable of independent critical thought, they can be easily influenced and controlled. They'll believe any lies you tell them.

A few educated people are necessary to do the actual work, but somewhere along the line, someone figured out that "educated" is not really necessary. "Trained" will do. Colleges no longer educate people. They train them to do particular types of work.

The next step is to stamp out outbreaks of uncontrolled critical thought wherever it occurs. This can be accomplished by making displays of intelligence socially unacceptable.

Um, have you seen any of that lately?
