Avoid The School of Fools with Entrepreneurship
“Formal education will make you a living; self-education will make you a fortune.”
â€• Jim Rohn
Well, it’s safe to say Teachers Unions across North America wouldn’t embrace the above quote nor school voucher programs because nobody likes competition when you’re comfortable with a monopoly. Thus, entrepreneurship with its objective of creating innovation through new ideas and technology to make something better has emerged. Unfortunately, or fortunately depending upon your point of view, education in the 21st century is being critiqued due to its rising exponential costs at all post-secondary institutions, while failing to help uplift those in the lower socioeconomic strata. Sorry, the middle-class wasn’t mentioned because they’re a segment of the population that are often taken for granted, which explains why entrepreneurship is strongly embraced and traditional education being rejected.
Today’s educational institutions are an extension of state control both in and out of the classroom with increasing authority over children who are being programmed to function like mindless automatons to eventually, replace the current workforce for the greater benefit of the state without question. “The aim of public education isn’t to spread enlightenment at all, it is simply to reduce as many individuals as possible to the same level, to breed a standard citizenry to put down dissent and originality” (H. L., Mencken). In truth, the goal is to monetize and program the public starting from cradle too grave in real time. Seems J.D Rockefeller, was right when he said, “I don’t want a nation of thinkers, I want a nation of workers”. Indeed, to achieve it you control the way a man thinks then, you control the man.
So, entrepreneurship is a threat to the status-quo but, how you ask? Now, let’s seek assistance from British author and public speaker David Icke, who has written many articles, lectured and shared his concern about schools functioning as “Programming Prisons” for your kids. Well, Mr. Icke shared the answer which is found in neuroscience or more specially in our right and left brain hemispheres. The left-brain controls rational thought (logic, structure, discipline, conformity), while the right-brain hemisphere controls creativity (originality, uniqueness, emotions). Now, if you wanted to control a society of people what part of the brain and segment of the population would you manipulate? You got it, left-brain and children. As Mr. Icke coined the phrase, Left-Brain Prisoner is programmed through the educational system. No doubt, you can see how entrepreneurs could cause disruption for the power elite due to the fact, the traits/qualities of an entrepreneur are primarily right-brain and contrary to the indoctrination process found in almost all educational institutions.
Now, the Digital Age and its economy are here and those unprepared or refuse to adapt will become victims of Economic Darwinism, while ensuring their arrival in what I call the MLM Cemetery.
“Education is our passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to the people who prepare for it today.”
