Freedom from mind controlled education

Freedom from mind-controlled education

by Jon Rappoport

September 5, 2017

Over the past few years, I’ve written extensively about clap-trap higher education, which is turning out to be a combination of values-indoctrination, peer pressure, conformity, Leftist ideology, peppered with an astounding number of vague unexamined generalities. It adds up to intellectual starvation by attrition. It’s a war against the mind carried on by attempting to shape and control and limit the mind.

If you took the worst features of fake discourse and analysis and rolled them up into a ball, you would get college.

This is one reason why I wrote a basic logic course for high school students and included it in my collection, The Matrix Revealed.

From my own experience as a student, and from teaching teenage students, I discovered an encouraging fact: a little bit of logic goes a long way. Students respond. They wake up, for example, when they find out what a generality is, when they read examples, when they run them to ground, when they discover how many generalities end up in blind alleys with no factual support.

It’s as if the mind says, “I didn’t realize this before! I’ve been waiting for this! I want to analyze information. Here is a basic tool. I’m ready. Let’s go. I don’t want to be fooled anymore.”

The basic condition of a mind is ALERT. It’s only through the introduction of nonsense, contradiction and vagueness that the mind sinks into the mud and gives up and goes on autopilot.

There is a problem for the denizens of higher education: Students armed with logic eventually become independent. They resist indoctrination of any kind. They can perform their own investigations. They can handle information. They can discount and reject nonsense. They see through hidden agendas.

A teacher has to be ready for that and welcome it. Most teachers don’t want to face such intrusions. Open territory, open inquiries, far-ranging questions upset the planned status quo.

What should be the most exciting aspect of learning is taken as a threat.

In this regard, too many teachers are cowards. They can’t face the music of logic.

Higher education is mainly a group of designed set-pieces, whose purpose is arriving at a predictable result. Students armed with logic will rip those pieces to shreds, look at the elements, put them back together in new ways, and expose shortcomings and outright fraud. What students take to be an adventure most teachers look at as a deeply disturbing tornado.

This is the most profound meaning of censorship. The teacher essentially says to the student, “You can’t go there. Don’t think about what you’re thinking about. Don’t ruin the pattern. Don’t go into spaces where the truth is up for grabs. We’re trying to arrive at a destination, and I decide what that destination is.”

True education always contains factors of rebellion against authority—but this isn’t a mindless attack, it’s done with logic and evidence and honed thought. It can be done with a decent attitude and respect, so long as the teacher is willing to open the door to deeper and deeper analysis.

Then the classroom would be an exciting place. Then students would come in with bright eyes and minds. Then all bets would be off. Then teachers would learn new things. Then the atmosphere would crackle with possibility. Then both students and teachers would look forward to discovering what they don’t know. Then the real party would begin.

Then mind control would be a laughable absurdity.

Welcome to real school.

The lights go on. The minds go on.

The world is revealed to be a different place.

    My school days are past so an opportunity for the education you speak of is over for me. However, in the last year or so, with counseling and self-evaluation have I started on the road to questioning what my “betters” say. I’m not in a good position to challenge the main people I have begun to question, but I’m learning to not simply accept everything I’ve been taught, everything I’m told. It’s a scary process to be honest, but I find I’m a happier person when I think for myself than submissively go with the flow. I can look at what I hear and place it next to those things I know to be true and see if they add up. I wish I had learned this skill earlier and I appreciate that you’re putting it out there for others.

      You going to give up so soon; education is never over Minnie. There is always something to learn. It is never too late to learn, logic which is part of the Trivium. trivium is a set of tools designed to help one find the truth of a thing. The Trivium; Grammar, the mechanics of writingm Logic, the mechanics if thinking and analysis and Rhetoric, a smart mouth or sharpen pen to persuade or write your clear and confident thoughts…
      Or put another way, Input, Process, and output.

      With this singular sword at your side Minnie, you educate yourself, the world opens up to your mind. And it bcomes easier as you progress continues.To whatever degree you wish. You become the student and your own master.

      Don’t be intimidated by those who claim they are degreed and educated. Most of them have a sieve for mind…or are tooting their own horn. Searching for yes people.
      Passion and a love for thing will take you a long way, forget what the system says to you, deny even the Buddha. Question everything and do not be afraid to make a mistake or to be wrong. It is a healthy part of the process.

      • Thank you for the encouragement! I did not mean I had no chance for further education or educating myself. I merely meant my schooling days were over. I have started a book on logic and reasoning to try to hone my thinking processes. Also, I have begun questioning more so that I’m not a slave trapped in other people’s minds.

    If everyone mastered critical thinking skills, the world would be transformed & a much better place.

  3. Twelve years of forced indoctrination produces complaint sheeple….

    Four years of additional indoctrination produces teachers….
