and here is how it is right now:teach kids English, Spanish, French, German, Latin, Hebrew, Chinese, Japanese and Arabic. teach kids Math, Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Computer Science. leave History and Philosophy for them to explore on their own. and of course all classes MUST BE OPTIONAL. if a student doesn't want to study anything - that is his right.
now for reasons that should be obvious the government will NEVER provide kids with the right kind of education. because the only thing ( aside from stealing money ) that a government ( any government, not just ours ) is concerned with is staying in power. government staying in power is synonymous with people staying stupid. that simple fact may be difficult for a liberal to figure out but all leaders, even the stupidest ones, understand it perfectly.so kids you live in America - are you proud ? no ? well you should be ! why ? because it is the greatest country on earth ! why ? because we are the beacon of freedom and all that crap home of the brave. you are all free ! have you noticed ? no ? so what that you can't have sex ? so what that you can't smoke weed ? you are free ! why ? because i said so ! try and say you're not free on a test and see what grade you will get. math and science ? what about it ? you don't need it kids. why ? because we have a service economy - you will flip burgers for the rest of your life ( until the bubble pops that is then you just gonna stave to death )
another fact that liberals find difficult to understand is that the best way to ensure universal stupidity is education. as Stephen Hawking said "the greatest enemy of knowledge is not ignorance, it is the illusion of knowledge" which just happens to be what education is all about - an ILLUSION of knowledge.
Daniel Tammet also says that information is what you need to become stupid.
