After reading through this thread, and doing some thinking in retrospect, I must say I do believe public schools destroy creativity. I remember in
our arts classes(drawing, music, and theater ect.), we were never once asked to really create anything ourselves, we were either instructed to; draw
what we saw, read from a script, or sing or play from a sheet of music provided. Never once were we instructed to be creative.
And in thinking about the word 'instructed' it dawned on me. It's because from day one we are 'instructed', and conditioned to expect
instructions before acting on ANYTHING, that we had no initiative to be creative on our own(save a few). We truly are molded into 'model citizens.'
And those who didn't comply and were particularly disruptive to the process, are sent to reform schools. Kind of another funny word there
'reform.' This discussion has kind of sent me into a frenzy of Google searching for the terms 'social engineering public schools' and into a hunt
for print media with information on the subject.
If you can slow down the flow of the new crop of minimum wage workers flowing into the machine, you can slow that machine down. It's operators
wouldn't like that very much, would they?
Great thread, we should keep it going.
