Mankind is destined to be ruled, his relatively short flirtation with self-government going the way of the Dodo, and for similar reasons: We have become a flightless, dull thing, our survival abilities eroded by being isolated — not on the island of Mauritus but on the island of dependency.
A prophet sees great things in the little details. There is a vocational skills school across the street from my office. “Vocational skills school” is another term for “Expanding the bureaucracy of the education system…in this case to try to give remedial education to those we have failed in our degraded high schools the first time ’round.”
It’s rather easy and tempting to call the kids who congregate across the street while waiting for their classes to start, creating mounds of cigarette butts and discarded potato chip wrappers, a bunch of losers. But if not personal losers, their loser propensities have been facilitated by an education system that regularly produces illiterate, ill-prepared yutes.
But, you’ll surely be thinking, given that so much of school time now goes to socializing them in Progressive ideology, at the expense of academic subjects, at least they are intent on “saving the planet.” Well, no. Every other day I walk across the street and pick up the garbage these yutes leave behind. I don’t believe this generation, so indoctrinated in environmental wacko-ism, is going to save the planet. But they will likely be ruled by those who purport to do so.
Brad is editor and chief disorganizer of StubbornThings.
