The title pretty much sums it up.
Without education…..being taught not just book learning but how
to think, reason and form an objective opinion from all sides of an issue…..you have a massive problem.
People become sheep. This isn’t a new phenomenon. There have always been followers since man first learned to walk upright. But today, in our culture, it is so much worse than it was even 30 years ago.
People take what they see and hear in the media and believe it without question. We don’t question news anchors who no longer present facts as the news but personal opinion. We don’t question newspapers and online media sources when they “print” something with questionable sources or that don’t fact-check. We just believe anything and everything they tell us without going behind the scenes to see whether or not it’s factual and true.
We, as a nation, have stopped thinking for ourselves and have let Fox News and the rest of the media dictate what we think and do. We let it form our opinions without looking at BOTH sides of the issue…any issue. And our country is suffering for it.
We are suffering because we are blindly following people who hate, people who fear things/people that are different, people who fear intelligence, people who greatly fear education and learning, people who fear imagination, people who completely fear science, and people who would rather pervert the Bible instead of following the Golden Rule.
And we continue to let it happen. AND IT MUST STOP.
As my mother would say, are you going to jump off a bridge with the rest of the idiots or are you going to think for yourself, do the right thing and take a stand?
The sheep must stand up and stop being sheep and start to think for themselves or we will lose this great country completely. The shame is, thanks to the sheep, we are already on our way.
