Do we really need education? Part 1

On my way home on the subway, I heard a couple of teens (probably between the ages 13-15) talking about how much they hated their teachers and how much they disliked school and its beginning to make them dislike their parents for sending them to school everyday. What I got from listening on these kids conversation was that they just wanted an easy way out and that one of them just wanted to watch TV all and the others wanted to be famous, it is sad to say but I feel like this is how manjority of kids in this generation.

One thing I have learnt about life and hardwork within the short time i’ve been on this earth is that “It’s a question of attitude. If you really work at something you can do it up to a point. If you really work at being happy you can do it up to a point. But anything more than that you can’t. Anything more than that is luck” . Now after saying this, I can relate to those kids because I had dropped out of college at some point and I also never wanted to go back but I saw my chances without an education are minimal so I went back to school and what I got from my time there was that education sucks and the government is controlled and it is all a sham, but there’s a reason. There’s a reason.

There’s a reason for this, there’s a reason education sucks, and it’s the same reason that it will never, ever, ever be fixed. It’s never gonna get any better. Don’t look for it. Be happy with what you got. Because the owners of this country don’t want that. I’m talking about the real owners now, the real owners, the big wealthy business interests that control things and make all the important decisions. Forget the politicians. The politicians are put there to give you the idea that you have freedom of choice. You don’t. You have no choice. You have owners. They own you. They own everything. They own all the important land. They own and control the corporations. They’ve long since bought and paid for the senate, the congress, the state houses, the city halls, they got the judges in their back pockets and they own all the big media companies so they control just about all of the news and information you get to hear. They got you by the balls. They spend billions of dollars every year lobbying, lobbying, to get what they want. Well, we know what they want. They want more for themselves and less for everybody else, but I’ll tell you what they don’t want: They don’t want a population of citizens capable of critical thinking. They don’t want well informed, well educated people capable of critical thinking. They’re not interested in that. That doesn’t help them. Thats against their interests. Thats right. They don’t want people who are smart enough to sit around a kitchen table to figure out how badly they’re getting fucked by a system that threw them overboard 30 fucking years ago.
