When we’re young, education, especially history, philosophy and psychology
seems like such a waste of time.
“If it’s not going to help me make a living, what’s the point,” we say.
Yet, history, philosophy and psychology tells us where we’ve been, how we
got where we are and what tactics are being employed to keep us in place.
Yet. . .some dare ask, “What is the Matrix?. . .
Our dreams are implanted or impacted by advertising and a dose of idealism.
Our acceptance or resistance is tracked by opinion polls.
We surrender our health to a treadmill existence and unconsciously yearn
for something unnamed.
Education can help limit the sense of constraint imposed by the past.
[[Or, contrarily, as seen in this era of Covid Lockdowns and Lockouts
strengthen the sense of personal insignificance under the spell of an
overriding governmental agency.]
