    I grew up in Texas and am very familiar with the way the evangelical right, with Big Oil money, has been moving for the past 40 years against education.  

    The reason is perverse, but simple.  Educated people tend to be for alternative energy and a future not in thrall to the special interests that derive wealth by pollution.  

    Thus, the polluting interests that stand to make billions want to reduce the power of education.

    The thing is, they just might succeed to some extent, and in some places.  

    They just keep at it.  I have seen many activists wear themselves out over the years, but the potential for profit making from pollution and earth extraction related industries can tempt whole graduating classes from the best schools into the service of this effort.  

    Still, honest people can prevail if they keep their eyes open to what is going on and do not let themselves be bamboozled.  

    hope that the idiots who have no constructive and creative solutions but only look to tear down will not win the day.
