No one knows because no one cares enough to look, not because it isn't there.
It is sad, but what do you really expect with all the mundane pointless bs they are teaching in schools. Besides the fact that is biased and only specific subjects are brought to attention, young peoples motivation is to get the hell out of school and go to some college and work some job and live a robotic life only fueled by their materialistic needs based on societies corrupting programming of the human culture. Not to learn to better themselves... why would any person in power want you to know anything besides respect authority, go to work, go pay your bills, go drink your coffee, go eat your pills, pay off your slave debt, never question why things are the way they are and so on.
It's simple to see but the solution is hard because everyone thinks they have a earthly solution to an outerworldly problem. They don't. Most people who fit the description can't see past a specific point ahead of them. So their solutions are unfulfillable and unrealistic most of the time.
Everyone is caught in this downward spiral domino effect. When will the people finally unify their concerns and forget of the petty bias that divides them daily? When will anyone realize their true potential instead of being intellectual monkeys? Why can't anyone see the manipulation right in front of their eyes? Why doesn't anyone take the time to observe their inner selves and realize we reflect outs into the world what's on the inside.
But no one listens, and if they do, there is no action. Passive aggressive procrastination until the day comes and you die and most likely you'll have no understanding of why and you'll be afraid of death and when you die you'll be stuck and you'll struggle to find your way out of this, never ending spiral of time.
