Childhood is Being Lost

programming_conditioning

By Noam Chomsky

“Childhood is just being lost and in the schools you see the same thing. The indoctrination is incredible. The Bush-Obama programs are programs for training kids for the Marine Corps. And I think they’re purposely done that way. It
undermines the independence of teachers.

If kids are studying for a test, they’re not going to learn anything. We all know that from our own experience. You study for a test and pass it and you forget what the topic was. And I presume that this is all pretty conscious.

How conscious are they? I don’t know, but they’re reflections of the attitude that you have to have discipline, passivity, obedience, the kind of independence and creativity that we were shown in the ’60s and since then – it’s just dangerous.”
