!memes@lemmy.ml has become a dumpster fire. Did you mean to post on !politicalmemes@lemmy.world?

I love this because it is a stupid take that doesn’t remotely understand or is willing to acknowledge any benefits of a standardized Education

You capitalized ‘education’ as if it were a personal deity. The ‘benefits’ of a standardized education is standardized slaves and worker drones who are compliant and obedient to the state and willingly regurgitate the lies the state teaches them. Wipe the clown makeup off your face.

Some zombies are so mentally damaged by this system that they defend the petty tyrants who brainwashed them. They defend the system that has robbed them of their potential and their humanity.

“The system of education that we use in the United States (and many other nations) is called the Prussian Model. Born of Prussia’s military failings in the Napoleonic Wars, the German kingdom developed an “education” system designed to indoctrinate children, year-by-year, from age 6 to 16, into full compliance with the state and its military leaders. The point was, bluntly, to ensure that “no German soldier would ever disobey an order again.””

“The system worked. To the world’s horror, German soldiers and citizens — despite growing up in what seemed like a liberal democracy — a socialist liberal democracy at that — committed any atrocity asked of them during World War II.”

“The Prussian Model largely explains why American and British schools are so often staffed by compliant rule followers and petty tyrants.”

Well my phone capitalized it but interesting read into my autocorrected message on my multi lingual Keyboard settings. Oh look it capitalized keyboard, my new deity.

Maybe don’t live in delusions about other people. I am familiar with the Prussian model. I am familiar with the criticism of it too. Presented to me by people educated with the Prussian model. Almost as if human can think for themselves and one shouldn’t underestimate their ability to think for themselves.

All of this is especially ironic considering the high number of religious indoctrination facilitating through home schooling.

But please go on. I won’t play with you tho.

You said this after you called a meme about thinking for oneself, ‘stupid.’

No need to play. I already won.

Take this as a learning opportunity.

This meme isn’t about “thinking for oneself” or even “being critical of information (or the government)”, it is saying government education is turning you stupid. Which is stupid, because it is ignorant, “thinking for oneself” isn’t stupid, I am doing that with my “government education” and I would wish you would too.
