Have you really even thought anything out? What is it exactly you people trolling this thread believe in?
You should be asking yourself that question ... not us "old stubborn men"... How long has it been since you have "thought anything out" genius? What do you think motivated millions of people to want to immigrate to America? Could it have been our "Constitutionalism" and freedoms? American "Glory and Patriotism" is what makes us uniquely AMERICAN! Without it, we would just be another Third World country like Cuba! You don't realize that you have been brainwashed by the enemies of freedom into thinking the way THEY want you to ... not the way YOU want to ...
The educational system is centered on an input/output process of information. It's been that way since the early 1900's! Success or failure depends on your efficiency of taking what the teacher tells you and then regurgitating it onto some exam. Those that are able to blindly regurgitate information the best are rewarded with higher grades. They are told they are "smart", when in fact they are just thoroughly indoctrinated. This input/output process is no different than what a computer or a slave does. You give it a command and it just does it, without question. The system you were raised in was carefully created to mold you into what you are today A "drone"...aka: "useful idiot"...Think about the following quote for awhile!...Then realize WHO said it and for what organization!
“In our dreams, people yield themselves with perfect docility to our molding hands. The present education conventions of intellectual and character education, fade from their minds and unhampered by tradition, we work our own good will upon a grateful and responsive folk. We shall not try to make these people, or any of their children, into philosophers, or men of science. We have not to raise up from them authors, educators, poets or men of letters. We shall not search for great artists, painters, musicians nor lawyers, doctors, preachers, politicians, statesmen — of whom we have an ample supply. The task is simple. We will organize children and teach them in a perfect way the things their fathers and mothers are doing in an imperfect way.” - John D. Rockefeller General Education Board (1906)
The masses blindly flow through the educational system and naturally fit into centralized systems that want good little obedient workers who take orders without question. Public schools have one purpose ... to turn out semi-literate, low intelligence "worker bees" ... just barely capable of performing mundane "service" jobs ... while the "elite" send their children to "private" schools, then on to expensive colleges like Yale or Harvard. We all know of that person who is very smart/indoctrinated that excels in a corporation/military/government job and yet they lack any "street smarts" to see what is really going on. When you understand that their mind only functions on what they are told, it becomes clear to you how they are able to be successful in a centralized system where taking orders is a way of life.
Our society is all about what is popular. From early on in your life you are pressured into doing what is popular, not what is best for you. This is a way a 'collective" gets individuals to sacrifice what is unique and special about themselves, to become the lowest common denominator in a group that really does not care about you at all...only what you can do for THEM!
"Intellectual debate" in this society somehow passes for those who can scream their talking points the loudest over the other. This is done purposefully to get a conformational, emotional reaction from the indoctrinated and to dissuade the logical, independent thinker from even entering the debate. Through this process, the "collective" is intellectually safe from any challenge to its power.
Talking points are created by people who do think ... about how to control societies. They weave this input/output slave thought into a Hegelian Dialectic that they control. They essentially have a society that bickers over issues that have no real importance on the real power of the world. They use hot button, emotional issues like abortion or gays in the military to divide and conquer us, while they laugh all the way to the bank, march us off to war and destroy our Constitution. Our schools teach us to get jobs and do what we are told. I knew that our school system wanted me to learn about sex, drugs, death, multiculturalism much more than issues that would have driven my success like economics, history, and psychology. They wanted me to drone on about senseless boring topics, instead of inspiring me to a higher and better self through art, music and philosophy. What they were really teaching me was to keep my head down and deal with their system. These days, those that are restless in this indoctrination environment run the risk of being drugged with Ritalin. We are constantly told what to think and NOT how to think.
A classical education is created on the firm foundation of the Trivium of Grammar, Logic, and Rhetoric. Grammar is the observation of symbols or situations. Logic is using reason to understand what the most likely outcome is and how to best position yourself for that outcome. Rhetoric is your ability to relate to others what you observed, how you logically thought about it and be able to defend your conclusions to others questioning your ideas.
“The most dangerous man to any government is the man who is able to think things out for himself, without regard to the prevailing superstitions and taboos.”- H.L. Mencken 1919
If you are able to process information through the Trivium, you could learn anything and most importantly, you would love learning. Did you ever wonder why our Founding Fathers were able to speak multiple languages and excel in vastly different areas like architecture and philosophy? It is because they had a strong foundation in the Trivium. Since these men loved learning, they did not ever stop learning. They continued to read and study up into their final days. This classical education led to a fertile ground of educational thought that gave rise to an American society that threw off the shackles of a collectivist tyranny for the simple principle of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
If you wonder why people don’t like you, it is probably because they don’t want to end up like you. In our society we are taught to hate education and avoid it after we finish school. Our society makes it real easy to be ignorant and even subsidizes the behavior. Logical thought is totally devoid in our educational environment. If we were taught logic we would cause all sorts of problems for a system that relies on blind obedience to orders.
Using logic allows the individual to rationally and unemotionally process what is being presented to them. There they can determine what is being presented to them, if it is good for them and how best to react to this new idea. Logic breaks the slave mentality of, “do what you are told.” When we have logic we are able to question what we are told and more importantly reject those who are shown to be liars. If we blindly accept everything we are told, we are led around by the nose by people who do think for themselves. When we think for ourselves we can get ahead of the curve and become independent of a world gone mad.
I have encountered people like this over and over again. I feel sorry for these people. They are victims of a society that has limited their potential. They only function on the input/output mentality. This has made them emotionally manipulated people dependent on a system that traps and enslaves them. I have no problem with someone logically questioning the evidence I present. Even if 90% of the stuff I showed above has some sort of logical explanation that would support the official story, there should still be support for those who question the story. After all if you believe in the 1st Amendment you must support everyone’s right to free expression, if not you are a collectivist.
