“Everyone is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.” ~ This quote is commonly attributed to Albert Einstein.
Everyone is gifted and skilled differently. Some are great mountain climbers, others are great divers or skiers or hunters or speakers or actors… and the list goes on indefinitely. Today’s indoctrination system (schooling system) is designed since its inception to crush these diversities in favor of normalizing a standardized skill or perspective.
One of the worst things a wannabe philosopher could do is to go to a philosophy school. Don’t kid yourself. No one can teach you wisdom. You’re supposed to learn it on your own. Philosophy by definition is the love of wisdom. Can love be taught at school? Is there a universal definition or standard on what is considered love or hate? Of course, there isn’t.
You see, the PRIMARY mission of these indoctrination centers is to enforce obedience to the authorities and produce obedient conformist workers. “I don’t want a nation of thinkers, I want a nation of workers.” ~ John D. Rockefeller, a central banker and the creator of the General Education Board in 1903.
The public schooling system we have today was originally invented by a dictatorship called Prussia, which doesn’t exist anymore. At the time, military dictators around the world were envious of how Prussia’s public schooling system was able to produce tractable obedient public that blindly obeys the authorities and follows commands like dogs.
Before public schooling, normalizing a worldview on the masses and brainwashing them to accept state propaganda unquestionably wasn’t easy. Schools made it possible on an industrial scale. Thanks to schools, existing generations are the MOST brainwashed in the history of human civilization. The invention of the TV further reinforced authoritarian indoctrination making it even more successful.
Fascism, Nazism, Communism and all other similarly horrific social orders have one fundamental element in common that allows them to exist: reduction of individuality in favor of uniformity and collectivism along with the unquestionable obedience to authorities. And what do schools enforce above all else? Uniformity, collectivism, and the unquestionable obedience to authorities. Indoctrinate them young, and they’ll never question authority.
If you want your children to be freethinkers and independent business owners, don’t send them to schools and invest that money instead to start a business for them. If you want them to be the future slave workers for the Rockefellers and other banking elites, go ahead and send them to schools to be indoctrinated.
