—where the masses become the asses...
In its most fundamental sense, school is an arm of the government. Why else would there be such a thing as truant officers, whose job is to enforce attendance?
And why is it exactly that governments make school attendance a law? Why else but to keep the party going? (By party of course I mean the party that is the government that happens to be in place.)
In essence, school is a place where we are taken involuntarily (at least in the beginning) for the express purpose of subjecting us to a form of mass hypnosis, and the power of suggestion latent therein convinces us (in a manner that verges on the sinister) that the process itself (of being hypnotized and propagandized) is good and worthy and true.
One of the most important things we learn in school is how to read. Once that skill is mastered, we can pretty much educate ourselves thereafter—that is, if we have the motivation to do so.
And therein lies the rub.
What would so motivate us but Society itself? And what is school but a small slice of the greater social order, a greater social order that is protected and perpetuated by the government?
Once we finish school we emerge from its prison-like environs and find ourselves inexplicably believing that our country is the best country, our team the best team and so forth. School, in other words, is the place where the masses become the asses.
School is essentially a universally accepted babysitter, a place to park our children until they grow up and figure out how to take care of themselves, so that they no longer need a babysitter.
In most cases school is much more stultifying than motivating. I endured school, and learned negatively more than positively. I learned, in other words, about things I did not want to do. The only thing I did want to do was get the hell out of school.
Dare we think that Paleolithic Man could even comprehend the idea of school?
