“The government has a vested interest in keeping people ignorant. In 1957 the Soviet Union launched Sputnik into orbit around the earth. So what happened?
America was so whigged- out by this awesome display of technological prowess that the government boosted education spending- with the sole purpose of producing generation of rocket scientists who could y’know, out blast the RED’S. So what happened?
By the late 60’s all those students were in college –and were smart enough to start questioning the countries policies- to protect against y’know the war and everything. Ever since our public officials have kept education funding a low priority ‘Cause they know a truly educated populace would like, vote their asses out of office Tout de Suite”.
