Concluding Remarks

Education is much like religion. Both receive government funds. Both are a source of employment. Both cross over sometimes into the other's territory. Both start with young formative minds. Both fill those minds with doctrines, leaving little room left for critical reasoning to question those doctrines, including learning how to discover and distinguish real knowledge from beliefs. Both do more believing and seeing. And both are petri dishes for nourishing America's warring and spying habits.

The future of America belongs to her impressionable youth today. Who knows and capitalizes on that more than our government and her war and spy business?

Grade school: Learn the elementals of warring and spying.

Middle school: Learn some more.

High School: Become more skilled in warring and spying.

Higher Education: Get and MS (Master Spy) and PhD (Doctor of Drones).
