“Mass education cannot work to produce a fair society because its daily practice is practice in rigged competition, suppression and intimidation. The schools we’ve allowed to develop can’t work to teach nonmaterial values, the values which give meaning to everyone’s life, rich or poor, because the structure of schooling is held together by a Byzantine tapestry of reward and threat, of carrots and sticks. Official favor, grades, and other trinkets of subordination have no connection with education; they are the paraphernalia of servitude, not of freedom.”[Bold Emphasis Added]

Actions are the pavement upon which the future rests. Choices are what make those actions take place. And individuals are the catalyst of all the choices that spawn great change – proactive individuals.
The world of the future is based on what proactive individuals choose to do. Just like a timeless poem cannot be created without a writer; just like a mellifluous symphony cannot be enjoyed without a composer; just like a painting cannot be pondered without the imagination and strokes of the painter, so the future cannot be created without individuals laying the foundation by their actions today.
Thoughts are the ultimate tinder that affect the actions of individuals. All thoughts individuals choose to take is a seed that can spawn great change. James Allen, author of As A Man Thinketh, homes-in saliently on this rumination:
“Every thought-seed sown or allowed to fall into the mind, and to take root there, produces its own, blossoming sooner or later into act, and bearing its own fruitage of opportunity and circumstance. Good thoughts bear good fruit, bad thoughts bad fruit.”
As such, it is paramount for all of us individuals to be mindful about the thoughts that traverse the inner workings of our mind. Moreover, it is incredibly crucial to contemplate the type of information you are exposed to; this information greatly dictates how an individual can and will act with prolonged exposure, but also makes individuals predictable, which is the power broker’s wet dream.
The late John Taylor Gatto, author of the timeless Dumbing Us Down – The Hidden Curriculum Of Compulsory Schooling, says it best:
“Schools are intended to produce, through the application of formulas, formulaic human beings whose behavior can be predicted and controlled.”[Bold Emphasis Added]
This is why tools like Propaganda, Social Engineering, Dumbing Of Education, Mind Control and others tools are used to manipulate entire populations. Yet, it all begins at the individual level, since the individual is the foundation of society.
If the goal is for the comptrollers to create a dumbed down, predictable, and stagnant mind-controlled individual, then the solution is obvious: individuals need to become educated, intellectually nimble and robust in every way shape and form, and proactive in moving forward and avoiding or shedding the shackles that are system-imposed while planting seeds of change everywhere.
Then, and only then, will individuals not only stand a chance, but society as a whole and thus, the future.
