Question: How can education end poverty?
Education is powerful for overcoming poverty, but for it to be able to do so, we must FIRST STOP INDOCTRINATING people.
The greatest enemy of knowledge is NOT ignorance, it is the illusion of knowledge. — Daniel Boorstin
Most schools teach people WHAT to think — NOT HOW TO THINK.
When you control a man’s thinking, you do not have to worry about his actions. You do not have to tell him not to stand here or go yonder. He will find his ‘proper place’ and will stay in it. You do not need to send him to the back door. He will go without being told. In fact, if there is no back door, he will cut one for his special benefit. His education makes it necessary. — Carter G. Woodson
Our Industrial Age educational system is broken and it’s destroying millions of lives. If we want different results than what we’re currently getting, we must have different ways of approaching the problem.
