Sometimes I feel like that's what causes the concept of 'some lives matter less than others.'
It's no longer about seeking knowledge anyways it's more a competition about who is better than whom.

Education is not the enemy, it is the lack of education, and what the 'educated' do, with that knowledge!!. That old BS saying that 'Ignorance is Bliss' is just a misnomer for domination, control, and subjugation!
Reading, writing, math should all be assumed 'RIGHTS' to children, in this era! We have the technology, but not the will, and those in power withhold education, afraid that if the masses REALLY understood what they were doing, they would face revolutions!
Bread and Circuses, as I think one of the early Roman Emperors theorized. I think that Nero, or perhaps Caligula, were among the ones that best used the concept, to keep the 'ignorant' masses, entertained, and fed, while they made their mischief.
Our society is a parody, perhaps a parallel, of those times: They entertain us with TV shows, and drugs, video games, and all kinds of distractions, to keep us from seeing REALITY, and seeing what kind of sht they are doing, when we aren't looking!!0

that's not actually education. that is brainwashing. that is people being told something and not questioning what it actually means. just because it comes out of a university teacher's mouth doesn't make it gospel. humans are fallible. i have no issue with education, because i like learning stuff. however, i don't try to go around shoving it down people's throats either. everyone has their own preferences for learning, and if you want to learn then you should definitely have more than one source.0
