THE STATE WEAPONIZES EDUCATION TO CREATE IGNORANCE

A hundred fifty years ago, at least some Americans recognized that all serious discourse depended on the use of the faculty called Reason.

Formal debate, science, and law all flowed from that source.

A common bond existed in some schools of the day. The student was expected to learn how Reason operates, and for that he was taught the only subject which could lay out, as on a long table, the visible principles: Logic.

This was accepted.

But now, this bond is gone.

The independence engendered by the disciplined study of logic is no longer a desired quality in students.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

You can even see it in the architecture of a lot of recently refurbished or newly built schools; they look as though they could be prisons for low-level criminals, instead of beautiful places which encourage thought or reflection.
