1) Government controlled schools.

2) A place where you are trained survival is feeding off the brains of others - cheating - and you are taught that education is to be mesmerized by seemingly useless unconnected commotion - history.

STG RUTHERS: Teachers vote; students can't. Thereby, politicians protect teacher unions. Students/children are irrelevant to all policy in the United States of America. Fuck that 'no child left behind' bu**sh** ... we need to start teaching ourselves how to survive and how the world works. Learning History without any reference to Economics is like learning about Fish without any reference to Water. Zombie Boot Camps are fucking worthless.


“Whenever is found what is called a paternal government, there is found state education. It has been discovered that the best way to ensure implicit obedience is to commence tyranny in the nursery.” - Benjamin Disraeli, 1874

“Free education for all children in government controlled schools.” - Tenth Plank of The Communist Manifesto

“Those who do not learn from the mistakes of history are doomed to repeat them.” - George Santayana

“Historically, much of the motivation for public schooling has been to stifle variety and institute social control.” - Jack Hugh

“Public educators, like Soviet farmers, lack any incentive to produce results, innovate, to be efficient, to make the kinds of difficult changes that private firms operating in a competitive market must make to survive.” - Carolyn Lochhead

“First, God created idiots. That was just for practice. Then He created school boards.” - Mark Twain

“The aim of public education is not to spread enlightenment at all, it is simply to reduce as many individuals as possible to the same safe level, to breed and train a standardized citizenry, to put down dissent and originality.” - H L. Mencken

“Consider (the pedagogue, or paid leaders of children, or teachers) in his highest incarnation: the university professor. What is his function? Simply to pass on to fresh generations of numskulls a body of so-called knowledge that is fragmentary, unimportant, and, in large part, untrue. His whole professional activity is circumscribed by the prejudices, vanities and avarices of his university trustees, i.e., a committee of soap-boilers, nail manufacturers, bank-directors and politicians. The moment he offends these vermin he is undone. He cannot so much as think aloud without running a risk of having them fan his pantaloons.” - H.L. Mencken

“Of all the classes of men, I dislike most those who make their livings by talking—actors, clergymen, politicians, pedagogues, and so on. All of them participate in the shallow false pretenses of the actor who is their archetype. It is almost impossible to imagine a talker who sticks to the facts. Carried away by the sound of his own voice and the applause of the groundlings, he makes inevitably the jump from logic to mere rhetoric.” - H.L. Mencken
