Our culture definitely is. We've just been recycling the same literature, music, film, etc. for about 60 years now. The culture that grew out of the post-war boom is now a stagnant, ugly disgrace. There hasn't been an original film in what feels like decades. No one even reads books anymore, and rock n' roll died almost 30 years ago.
Business has at last fully succeeded in killing art. Dead.
The Kardashev scale is a method of measuring a civilization's level of technological advancement, based on the amount of energy a civilization is able to use for communication, proposed by Russian astrophysicist Nikolai Kardashev. The scale has three designated categories: A Type I civilization—also called a planetary civilization—can use and store all of the energy which reaches its planet from its parent star. A Type II civilization—also called a stellar civilization—can harness the total energy of its planet's parent star (the most popular hypothetical concept being the Dyson sphere—a device which would encompass the entire star and transfer its energy to the planet(s)). A Type III civilization—also called a galactic civilization—can control energy on the scale of its entire host galaxy. The scale is hypothetical, and regards energy consumption on a cosmic scale. It was proposed in 1964 by the Soviet astronomer Nikolai Kardashev. Various extensions of the scale have since been proposed, including a wider range of power levels (types 0, IV and V) and the use of metrics other than pure power.

Just imagine that after 4-12 years of post secondary education, you discover all your time and energy was devoted to studying a lie, deliberately made up to lead mankind astray. Then your true education begins.
Here in the states, can we even call it education anymore. It seems more and more like pure indoctrination. The department of education needs to be nuked off of the face of the earth. Teachers aren't even required to know their subjects anymore. All of their certifications are geared to learning theory and trying to abide by the latest learning trends. The teachers workshops and seminars are all about the psychology of teaching and not about the subjects themselves.
This system is working exactly as planned.
But maybe not all is lost. Maybe we needed to head down this path before we can awaken to the dangers. Maybe we will become stronger in the end, owed directly to this intentional evil. They think they are controlling us but they are actually making us free, never to be controlled again. They are their own worse enemy and time will show their true soul.
