A place where kids are told what to believe and to fear authority. Where young minds are taken advantage of from their youngest age all through their young adulthood. Some call this brainwashing. It is where all of America's society is taught to embrace "fact" as dictated by the government. It is where kids first learn to follow a routine schedule of "mandatory" activities and work, while being told that it will benefit their knowledge, when in actuality, it is to train them for the mindless and repetative work they will have to do as adults working as employees for corporate America.

It is a government facility that abolishes true free-thinkers. It does, however, give "students" the illusion of being able to have creativity and a mind of their own, when in actuality, they are barely stretching their creative minds inside of the box which School has trained them to stay in.

School is where human beings first begin to turn into obedient workers. If one chooses not to attend or participate in their fullest at "School", one will always suffer multiple levels of punishment, ridicule, and an announcement of their incompetence and low intelligence. They will be denyed a majority of "working positions" avaible because they chose not to complete the rigorous process of school. Therefore, students are raised to believe that if they do not succumb to this mindless control and obedience, they will therefore not be accepted in society to make money which will therefore make their lives more difficult if not impssible to live. Money/Success = Happiness. School will not give students an alternative choice to go through life other than completing its twelve year course and more if neccessary. This is to block out, as mentioned earlier, their free-thinking minds, and force them to follow a system of "hard work" (mindless obedience) = acceptence and saftey.

Though many have began to realize the truth and the inevitable thrust into a structured preplanned life, beginning with school, despite their rights to happiness and freedom, they force themselves to go through with and eventually believe in school, for it is the only thing society has made that these students can rely on without being socially iscolated. An endless cycle.

I zone out while working at school, then I come home and do three hours of work, and then I go to sleep.
