The teaching profession arose from the habit of the wealthy employing the scholarly minded to educate the progeny of the monied. Often, inducements were offered such as living quarters, laboratories, and studios were included for the tutors. In more enlightened societies than ours, teachers are venerated as valuable contributors to culture, morality, and competitiveness. In the US, the primary purpose of public “education” is indoctrination into the “worker” class mentality of debt slavery. Those few that leak out of their system with their self esteem and thinking prowess intact are carefully watched to ensure that they do not overly stimulate the masses into an awareness of their plight. The ruling class uses divide and conquer as their primary and persistent tool of oppression. It happens to work, but the desperation of the ruling class is becoming apparent through their naked power grabs of the past few decades. The future will be different, but will it be more utopian or dystopian in character? Only time, suffering, and perhaps revolution will tell.
