Education is not something people do to you.

That's indoctrination.

Education is something you do to yourself.

That's fucking dangerous and they know it.

Which is why they teach you not to.

The sole purpose of state "education" is to cripple your learning faculty by flooding it with propaganda

The sole purpose of state education is to make you a fully functional but ignorant slave

I sensed this whilst I was at school

I learned it after I left

It's the only thing school taught me that I wouldn't have learned just as effectively if I hadn't been there.

A lot of our products are metric, people just ignore it. A liter of hootch is still called a "fifth" by most people.

A liter is closer to a quart.  A fifth is roughly .750 liters, and is what most alcohol is sold in.
Die in a fire you pedantic ass.

I used to sell it, I make and bottle it now and have to be aware of bottle sizes for batch calculations, bottle labelling is regulated by the federal government.
You're a special case, Babylon.  You are offensive even when you don't post.

Merely by being alive, you make everyone just a little more miserable

Quote
Prosecutors said Ciavarella sent juveniles to jail as part of a “kids for cash” scheme involving Robert Mericle, builder of the PA and Western PA Child Care juvenile detention centers. The ex-judge was convicted in February of 12 counts that included racketeering, money laundering, mail fraud and tax evasion.

and

Quote
Once the case against Ciavarella surfaced, special investigative panels began reviewing cases he handled from 2003 to 2008. The Pennsylvania Supreme Court concluded that he denied about 5,000 juveniles, some as young as ten, their constitutional rights, leading to the vacating of their convictions.

and

Quote
Among the young people exploited by Ciavarella were 15-year-old Hillary Transue, who was sentenced to three months at a juvenile detention center for mocking an assistant principal on a MySpace page; and 13-year-old Shane Bly, who was sent to a boot camp for two weekends after being accused of trespassing in a vacant building.
 
Another judge, Michael T. Conahan, used his position to shut down the county-run juvenile detention center and redirect juvenile detainees to the private prisons. He pleaded guilty to racketeering conspiracy.

o man, this thread made me a bit depressed... :eek: i usually try to forget about all the sick puppies out there, especially when it comes to state education which in my opinion has the biggest influence in society (or is this another half-informed conclusion of mine?) so thanks for this reality check.

I don't know that much about the US schools, I particularly get upset by the school system here in Germany, where at the age of 10-11 you are classified as either 'totally stupid', 'plain stupid' and 'not so stupid' - and sent to the respective school to be a fully functioning part of the respective social class.

:argh!: :argh!: more maths in every class damit!!!  :argh!: :argh!:

the situation with prison labour is something i only know for a year or so and it's so extreme and beyond the little bubble I've built in my head....  :aaa: a proper nightmare  :aaa: o man all this makes me see what a naive idiot i am sometimes.

You're not a naive idiot. People in Germany don't get a front row seat to all this. A lot of it's a Land Of The Free(TM) thing.

Yes, this is a freedom thing, and socialist Euros just don't get it.

This country is so profoundly fucked up that I honestly don't know whether we're going to dig out of it. I used to think we would, but things just keep going from "intolerable" to "even worse" and I'm not seeing any sign that they're going to turn around, ever. I think it's just going to ride this train until it runs out of tracks.
