Schooling the World

Nov 17, 2019 by

School is cool. School is rules. School makes you into a tool. School is fun. When you’re done. You’ll fit in like everyone.

Here’s a documentary about the Western education system which, as pointed out in the film, has been a weapon used by capitalists to engage in a centuries long practice of spiritual, emotional, and psychological [spwiki]colonization[/spwiki]. Essentially, the western education system is used not to uplift and improve, but to impose uniformity and conformity on native populations so they can be forcibly inserted into [spwiki]The System[/spwiki]. The consequence of this psychological and emotional colonization is the destruction of culture, language, indigenous knowledge, and self-esteem. We don’t notice this in the West because, like a frog in a gradually boiling pot, by the time we realize it, we’re either too old to do anything about it, or too burnt to try. For the sake of us all, this “industrial” education system probably should come to an end.

The documentary is paced a little too slow, but it’s still worth watching.
