only with that information which the elite, through the controlled media everywhere, haveconditioned the minds of the population to accept as being the truth. Much of this “truth”is nevertheless false, where critical facts upon which a true judgment depends aredeliberately omitted or falsified, especially on critical issues which are generally upheld asbeing “public opinion” and thus to be accepted and believed.Predictably, the very same people who place Presidents, Prime Ministers, Senators, andother representatives in positions of political power through the use of their multi-billiondollar fortunes are the same moneyed interests that have deliberately destroyededucation. This cabbal have long strived for a working class that was to be taught to do aparticular job and not to think about social or political issues. They have now created aneducational structure cleverly focusing on
instead of cognitive learning. Thisruler-imposed system, enhanced by anti-intellectual activities such as meaninglessminority-group studies and the merits and joys of multiculturalism, creates programmedlemmings that understand almost nothing of what occurs beyond the propaganda andmythology of the political-financial elite.
“Because state and corporate power depend on a similar set of unchallenged, unquestionable distortions and delusions,incoherence remains vital for their survival. After all, to present a coherent explanation as to why the Third World is starving, why the environment is falling apart, why there was a Cold War, why Panama was invaded, why there was a Gulf war, why forty per cent of British children live below the poverty line, and so on,would immediately involve revealing the truth that society is built on a set of necessary illusions. Consequently, the news we see and read, like education at school, must consist of a stream of disconnected, disembodied facts, with no context, no coherent explanation of meaning or significance, no background and no logical framework by means of which they could be understood. Because the only logical framework that fits-that the Western world is motivated by corporate profit at very nearly any human and environmental cost-is disallowed, a confused hotchpotch of ill-fitting, irrational frameworks must be invented and bolted together. Any number of surveys have revealed the extent to which the majority of people have no coherent grasp of what is happening in the world ”
“Burning All Illusions” by David Edwards
The simple fact is, the education
of today does ANYTHING-BUT to allowus to think freely.
When you sit for an exam, the answers you provide are graded onhow well they match with the indoctrination you have received during the year. Educationis never about education in a real sense that produces character, wisdom andunderstanding because this would produce an objective mind-set, a dangerous thingindeed to those pulling the strings. It is all about
rewarding those that CONFORM
toestablishment concepts, where it was understood long ago, that if you can control whatpeople are taught and how their individual “reality filter” functions, then you can controlthe nature of society as a whole and inevitably steer it in the direction that you want.
“We are actively discouraged from thinking constructively and questioningly, and once an individual has accepted the numb acquiescence so encouraged, an insidiously vicious circle has been successfully promoted. Another rather convenient result of such a situation is that people, who don’t think constructively, don’t even realise it.”
Michael Timothy, The Anti-Intellectual Ethic
In short, our education system is like a sausage machine designed and built by the rulingclass elites that churns out minimum wage slaves who are smart enough to work at their jobs, but in most cases never made smart enough to understand the root causes of theirinability to ever get ahead in life. As unbelievable as it may seem, it's quite possible to bea Ph.D., Doctor, Lawyer, Businessman, Journalist, an Accountant, or Factory Hand and atthe same time be an uneducated person in the true sense. The difference between realeducation and vocational training has been cleverly blurred in our time, so that we nowhave people successfully practicing their vocations, while at the same time being totallyignorant of the larger and more important issues of the world in which they live.
