Steps to controlling a populace: distract (media), deceive (politics), divide (politics, race, class), indoctrinate (State schools), disarm (ongoing agenda). This government is actively engaged in all of these.
Which is sad because I read Machiavelli and he preached that you could control a state without all that.
The indoctrinators must be busy today.
The medical system destroys health. The legal system destroys justice. The education system (public AND private) destroys knowledge.....and the government destroys freedom! Think about it.
Of course I disagree on the schools part
Make sure you don't deviate from the curriculum blue
I deviate from the curriculum all the time. I don't teach in a box.
You don't believe I do? Thats your choice I guess.
I believe that even if you do I know many educators don't have that ability
Well that is poor choice by them and poor leadership from admin. At my schools we have always been encouraged to use the best means necessary to teach our standards. The curriculum where I am at now, mostly sucks, I use it very little.
I agree except for one caveat. Private schools can indoctrinate too. Christian private schools can teach anti-evolution bullshit. And they can teach pro-capitalist things that help themselves make money.
Private schools aren't forcing you to pay for or attend them
Well....I'd throw religion in general into state sponsored control mechanism.
Privates uses the same curriculum except for science
You plan on making any money in your life? You need an education
