I hate to say it but, I fear there are a lot, and I mean a lot of people who are so uniformed and very oblivious to what is truly going on in the world today?
To go along with this, I feel that are schools are failing teaching kids to learn how to think critically about issues and have any independent thought process.

On p. 382, Druey turns to the problem of information overflow. The situation of opposing information interest under this scenario is obviously connected to the forth quadrant ( “protection against information”) of the above matrix. On p. 382/83, Druey outlines a “Postulate of Information Ecology”. He starts with a brief description of the problem of information overload from a rather subjective perspective and some narratives. Then, he turns to the question how the problem of information overload can be addressed. On p. 382, he distinguishes between three approaches: First, the receiver has to learn to live with information overload, has to improve her information selection and processing capabilities, competences, etc. Second, it is crucial that intermediaries (media, but also teachers, consultants, etc.) step in and pre-select, pre-process, translate, customize, … information. However, in many situations the only solution might be to reduce the activity level of the sender (source). The third aspect is the one Druey will be focusing on for the remaining part of the article.

There is no question that the material in which our youth is exposed to today, in public schools, is often mistake filled agenda based mind control. however, i am interested in finding out more about the textbook makers and how they are chosen as the ones for our children to "learn" from.
