  •   #3 - Blame the MBA (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    My shorthand symbol of what's happened to even educated Americans is the MBA.  People know how a business is run but they have no concept of the who, what, when, where, why and how of government.   Even college educated people get very little education in the liberal arts.  And all we hear from people is that we need more math and science which is fine to a point but again leaves us without historical and cultural context.

    And for all those around here who despise religion, at least people with some religious education often get some history and culture thrown in along the way even when it carries sectarian bias.  I mean at least you learn there is more than one narrow way to view the world around you.

    The technocrats scare me more than the theocrats.
