Does TPTB want people with decent critical thinking skills?

Is it better for a tyranny to have people with no critical thinking skills?
What about selfish hypermaterialism? You know things they have direct control over.

I would say no...or that they already have them. Perhaps all of the tests we take as children help them spot who they would like to keep dulled down and who will go on to serve higher up. Cause let's face it unless you are born in the family you do not rule at the top and will in some way serve. Either as a peon working class or an upper middle class you still serve...

Now drink your floride weaknes and eat your high fructose apathy

Explanation: S&F!

I believe some old skool scifi author whose name fails me and my ego wont let me google for it, said the following...

There are 4 types of people...

The smart who are lazy [this IS TPTB! because they smart enough to be lazy!]

The smart who are industrious [this IS TPTB handy men!]

The dumb who are lazy [these can be manipulated to do what is required by the smart industrious handy men in management etc.]

And finally the dumb who are industrious [these :shk:
'ers need to be stamped out because they work very hard every single moment at being dumb!]

Personal Disclosure: OL is smart enough to be LAZY!
Either wayI am not TPTB's target demographic slated for destruction!

Who Really Controls America...



In answer to your question and in quoting George Carlin....he put it very succinctly....


"The do not want a population capable of critical thinking.

They don't want people who can sit around the kitchen table and realize how badly they're

getting f*cked by a system that threw them overboard 30 years ago.

The don't want that !

You know what they want ?

Obedient Workers....People who are just smart enough to run the machines and do the

paperwork and dumb enough to passively accept all of these increasingly shi##y jobs with

lower pay, longer hours , reduced benefits and the end of overttime.

And the vanishing pension that vanishes the minute you go to collect it......"



R.I.P. George Carlin
Thank you for your dedication to the conveying of the TRUTH.

Peace

Its hard to call it and it depends on if your speaking of the Earth caaretakers or those who place those of earth in power. for those who place earth caretakers in power may have different Agenda but it hasnt been upheld since they been gone so long. So its a hard call. in one thought you would feel they want decent critical thinking skills, why on the other hand you get the feeling they want the massess of Earth to be dumbdown so that there is controll over them..

Absolutely !

I was writing my response based on the same vid as you had posted...

I merely wanted to make sure that ATS could hear what this intelligent Man had to say about the TRUTH.

The TRUTH as to how and why we're all getting screwed in the good old American Hershey Highway ~!



Peace

The last thing they want is stupid people.
The first thing they want is team players that follow the play book.
