it all got started

Since mass compulsory schooling was instituted to create the
kind of people needed for the new industrial society, obedient
workers, soldiers for the army, etc., indeed, to create the only
kind of people who would live this way, wouldn't it make the most
sense to attack mass compulsory schooling before anything else?
After all, if people are generally uncritical, it is because they
were socialized to be that way in school, and aren't we wasting
our time trying to hammer home alternative messages to people
who were schooled to ignore it anyway? It seems we expend all
our energy on incidentals, but not on the very foundation of the
wage slave state - that institution that raised us to live in
a wage slave state. Many thanks.
I agree with that, Winston. Btw, there's a useful
Media Hell article on this theme (originally published by the Idler
magazine), titled Compulsory
Phil (Board admin.)
Surely most people who consider themselves free
thinkers have come through the school system? I think in principle
a state education system is as valuable as a state health system.
Having said that, I am concerned at the state of the education system
as I am at the state of the health system.
