Good to have you back man
I don't know how the government would manipulate school books, because there are private schools which can choose there own books, and in theory the
first amendment would protect the school books from censorship. Assuming the government is keeping information from reaching schoolbooks, it most
likely would be technical info pertaining to military technology.
Actually there was a thread recently on how a grad student with a 200k grant made a retro virus that seems like it mayy be a cure for aids. I remember
him being quoted as saying something like 'it was too simple, there is no way this could be original'. This though would probably pertain more to
Pharm companies tring to sell treatment instead of a cure because they make more money that way.
I would say a more likely thing for the governmet to do would be to "flag" children who show great promise in science at a young age to "nurture"
and "push" them in a particular direction.
