    Seems that people are starting to fight back against the War on Education.

    The one where education is frowned upon as being elitist or looked at with suspicion. Having a an education makes you a dead beat and a freeloader at best, but most likely as someone with an agenda for a globalist oppression of the masses.

    Where a person with degrees in social sciences is a lying wordsmith trying to snare you with his or her forked tongue. The formal, life or physical sciences are inhabited by money grabbing people using their education to invent lies to fill their pockets with tax payer's gold.

    A war where having less education is an asset to society, because to have unnecessary knowledge is a burden on society. To quickly be able to browse through youtube videos is considered far more valuable than reading ridiculously long books by archaic authors from a distant past.

    A war where people with education are told to crawl back under their rocks until the next election, because self made men not bound by evidence based knowledge now control the world. The world will no longer be ruled by the "elite" but of "men and women of the people".

    Here endeth the doomsday rant!

    Yup, not a fan of anti-intellectualism myself. Funnily enough I was reading a very old thread on another forum today where a British teacher was talking this very problem in America. He claimed he gave an after-school talk where, as it was finishing, an American colleague said out loud to the kids that "he's spent too long inside his own head". I understand it's a global problem though. Just here in the UK regarding Brexit, one Brexit supporting politician said the British public don't want experts any more.

    It's not a happy situation. The world's going to need more smart folk to deal with the impending energy crisis, overpopulation, possible future diseases and illnesses, climate change.
