"You are being trained, not educated." This woman, Charlotte Iserbyt was Canada born, highly educated, and as of this video she is 84. Does she sound uneducated? Dumbed down? "Old"? No. I was thinking about this over the last few years and more and more information is coming out about this. The education system in America is designed to keep people at "worker bee" level, as Charlotte speaks of in the video. Basically this means being smart enough to do manual labor but dumb enough to not question why. There are many facts surrounding what she speaks on as well as theories, but I will leave you all to decide for yourselves.... If you can. The American education system rewards children by not thinking outside the box. Anytime a child thinks differently in this school system, they are considered to have a "learning disability". It isn't a learning disability, it is a training disability. Think of a rebellious puppy. People assume a puppy who refuses to listen is stupid. Many people find "untrainable dogs" useless. The puppy is not "stupid" simply because it is untrainable, it is smart to think for itself and wants to do what it feels is most enjoyable or necessary. I am not sure how the education systems work around the world but I clearly see a pattern of American citizens (children, teens, and young adults) who are not capable of critical thinking. Rather than asking questions, they defend why it is logical to not ask questions and just do as they are told. Charlotte also speaks on keeping minorities stupid/dumbed down on purpose. It is considered "racist" to say most blacks or Hispanics in America are "stupid" yet it is a FACT that they are highly uneducated, more so than whites. This is not due to the fault of their own, but the system that is running against them. It has even tricked them into believing any member of their race seeking to better their life or education status is "for the whites" or a "sell out". Things like racism thrive and still are alive and well today because of the educational system. The education system is not the only problem here. TV shows that parents are allowing their kids to absorb are also being used against them. TV shows, video games, and even movies have become "dumbed down" and easy to follow as well. They, more often than not, don't challenge a child to think for themselves but think as a collective figure. Think of cartoons and video games over the years and compare them. You will see what I mean. Why is it that so many Americans choose to ignore this stuff? Is it because they don't care? Is it because they are uneducated on the facts? Or is it simply because they were trained not to ask questions?
