Each generation of kids are actually getting more "brain power" imo, overall anyway. When I was growing up I would always feel as though the younger
generations had more brain power then when I was their age.
The problem is, this "brain power" they have is vastly wasted and is isn't tapped into properly. Important information is purposely kept from them.
Their education is more like an indoctrination to turn them into workers and consumers.
I tell you, if I could redo school, half the time I would be correcting my teachers and elaborating on their explanations. I would get up and teach
the class myself when necessary, and the teachers would be amazed at how much even they weren't taught.
This westernized education we receive is so watered down, so filtered and sterilized. I only had one teacher who was ever willing to discuss important
information removed from our education, he would slip in those types of facts here and there.
It was probably that teacher which led me to search much deeper into many of the things he discussed briefly. Most kids in the class probably didn't
pay attention to those interesting little bits of education, but I certainly did.
School would have been so much more interesting if they taught us that sort of information rather than the bland orthodox mainstream information.
There have been countless times when I learn something new and wonder why they didn't teach that to us.
If I were to go back to school they'd probably end up kicking me out for undermining the teachers lessons and acting like I knew more than the
teachers. They wouldn't be able to stand the fact that I could show their lessons ignored so much vital information.
I've also thought about becoming a teacher so I can enlighten the kids properly but I know I wouldn't last very long after they realized how much I
was deviating from the mainstream education plans. I would need to be sneaky like the teacher I mentioned earlier.
