Well I guess that since your're telling people why they should learn how to read and write thats better than the gung ho approach I see many people
talk about nowadays. At least you're not looking at the world from the barrel of a gun.
I have five brothers who were all military so they somehow think I should watch military shows with them. But after watching these shows, it left me
with the impression that brains beat brawn every time. No matter how strong a person is, someone will outsmart them. It's useless to attempt any sort
of revolution if you don't even know the capabilities of the side you are revolting against.
Remember Pol Phot, he had all the intellectuals and educated people rounded up first and killed, but someone smarter than him finally got him. So yes,
intellectualism and education are the two primary necessities for any successful civilization.
That's why propaganda is so effective, people who don't know because they are uneducated, are the most easily swayed. And this is where they get
you, they outsmarted your quasi-intellectualism that is based on quasi-self-fulfillment. That's how Hitler operated, by making it seem the Jews were
the problem by throwing up false information that people who were not educated fell for. It was not the professors throwing rocks into store windows,
it was the uneducated masses. The professors were busy creating the propaganda.
We have the same thing here now. Propaganda spewing out of every college campus and high school, but the students are not being educated outside of
propaganda, they can tell you about marijuana and gay marriage, but do they pick up books to read for their own benefit? I worked as an English tutor
in a liberal arts college, I can most assuredly tell you no, in fact, they didn't even read their own textbooks.
The world they live in has made it possible for them to not comprehend tomorrow's worst case scenario.
