Canada, number one?!
I live in Canada, and I can tell you ALOT of people are not very educated. They know alot of gossip, but not much about sciences or philosophical
ideas. Yet that's what matters the most!
I agree with you on this one, education nowadays is kind of a synonym for "being smart" (or sounding like one), I would say it goes the other way
I live in Israel, supposedly the second country in that list. Most people here are doing their degrees for the sake of a better employment, very small
percentage are actually into educating themselves, and most of the population are still hooked with cheap entertainment on TV that dumbs them more and
more. At least they are being professional about SOMETHING.
The more educated a population is, the more dumb, passive, submissive and mediocre and self-righteous it seem to be. Real intelligence and critical
thinking are still being booed in our society, they teach us how to become ignorant with style therefore = no education and no educated
