It’s possible if you contemplate the subtleties a little further you might reach a conclusion that many of the dogmas are reinforced through things
that children are taught in school. For instance, no your child can’t pray in school, but they can draw a shamrock on St. Patrick’s Day, but who
is St. Patrick? A religious figure!
The examples are endless when you begin to think about them.
Now having said that to answer your question, I am self taught, the last grade in school I was allowed to attend was the eighth grade, which I did not
Why exactly do you feel there must be a hierarchy to society that people must adhere to at all times?
Do you fear people can not govern or make wise decisions for themselves?
Would you say our government governs well, or makes wise decisions for us?
Do you consider yourself first and foremost a human being, or would if someone asked you; would you describe yourself as an American?
In reality a shared identity is being indoctrinated one that will lead to 50 plus percent of their eventual income being taxed by the government and
various insurances designed for further profit of corporate interests.
This identity being instilled will be used and manipulated to ask for them to support wars and murder of other human beings, tens of thousands of
miles away from your happy home, often those people being ones who have never done anything bad to you, anyone you know, or anyone at all.
Only a handful of people will profit off of this, and no one but those people will be more secure or better off for it.
Experience is the best education, mentoring people along lines they have a genuine interest in is the best education.
Creating an environment that is conducive to self expression, curiosity, and exploration at an individual level is the best education.
Well, unless you like giving up 50 plus percent of everything you own, and supporting a culture of war and scarcity, and corporate rights and rule
over the individual, and a belief that you owe an unplayable debt and never ending allegiance to the state, as God the ultimate authority.
Standing outside the box you see everything that goes on in the box, sitting inside the box, you see only that narrow point of focus your attention is
being diverted too.
The school system is systematic indoctrination into a political/religious/economic class system, where the vast majority of people will be educated
only to the point of functional illiteracy by design for the purpose of exploitation and taxation.
Yes its a hard thing to admitt but face it, it's a hard world to live in too!
There is a reason for that and it starts in school!
