Much as I dislike Noam Chomsky’s views on many subjects, I cannot argue with this excellent quote – schools do act as filters, and universities are designed to break down the cultural norms children have inherited from parents and replace them with new norms which reflect the ideals of our leaders. Anyone who doesn’t automatically switch to the new norms they try to instill will fail.
I don’t include this to be negative – it’s vital to know what the plan is so that you can protect your child from it. The culture must become what WE make it, rather than it making us what those who lead want us to be.
