    Liberal Thinking

    The powers that be don't want self-regulation. They want automatons that follow orders without thought.

    They want adults that will do as they are told, not ones that actually know how to learn and develop. They don't want thinkers, or people that continue to learn. Those people might turn against the wealthy that want them to just get with the program.

    That's why all these wonderful ways to teach that actually work are never put in place.

    Well, at least not in the lower classes, who are just supposed to be easily controlled half literate barely civilized enough to do the low wage jobs the wealthy want them to do. As far as the ones running things, a too literate, too contemplative, too aware lower class is a dangerous lower class.
