It's so sad to see all the haters who get angry at anybody who doesn't conform to the groupthink.
They spend their whole lives following the "Rules". To afraid to question the School System, or the Work System.
The MSM has created a race of sheep that will essentially police themselves.
All the posters regurgitating this tripe are too afraid to step out of line, think outside the box.
All in all, your just another brick in the wall.

Seriously?? You think THAT is how schools operate in this day and age??
I'll return with "All you non-conformists are just alike". Of course, you probably won't get the pun, but others will.
School does not exist to teach memorization or "obeying the rules", it exists to teach students how to think in a logical manner, how to seek out
information, how to become lifelong learners. This isn't the 1950's and school doesn't operate the way it once did.
Many people who failed themselves (the schools didn't fail them, they failed themselves) try to make it the fault of the school instead of taking the
responsibility for their choices and actions on their own shoulders. Not one single person with a decent education could EVER be considered "another
brick in the wall", HOWEVER, each and every person who fails to take advantage of the free education that is provided for them and make the most of
it is most definitely "another brick in the wall". They are the people who are easy to control because they can't think logically, they never
learned how. They can't seek out information, they never learned how. They can't make logical decisions, they never learned how. Instead of doing
those things, they are controlled by various groups (headed up by people who DID get an education and used it for less-than-honest purposes) who tell
them to "resist the groupthink", "don't let them control you", "they're just sheeple" when, in fact, YOU are the one suffering from
groupthink, being contolled and are a sheeple.
You are being controlled by people who DO have an education and you are being manipulated to do their bidding. You complain and rail against the one
and only one thing that could break their control over you. They don't want people to be educated, they don't want people to know how to learn or
research or think logically, they want people to be easy to control and it's much, much easier to control the "stupid and ignorant" than it is to
control a group of educated people. I'm not saying you in particular are stupid, but I will say you are ignorant. Ignorant means that you don't know
a particular thing, stupid means you aren't capable of knowing a certain thing. Anyone who is ignorant is capable of overcoming the ignorance by
learning, you can't overcome stupidity. However, if you stay ignorant long enough without challenging it or trying to overcome it, it does turn into
stupidity. Don't let that happen to you and definitely don't let it happen to your son. There is nothing shameful about being ignorant, but there is
something shameful about remaining ignorant when you have a free public education provided to help you overcome the ignorance and you choose to not
take advantage of it.
