TIDBIT: … THIRTEEN REASONS WE (THE USA) MAY BE STUCK HERE ON ...
February 18, 2015 / /
...Of course, there is one huge obstacle to a sustained American/human presence in space, and that's our edhykayshun sistum (thanks to Mr. V.T. for this one). Read, and laugh, or weep, or both, as the case may be:

“For Godsake, Arthur, is that how you imagine me; a respected and admired figure, a devoted Father, a loving husband? Well, I’ve also published nearly two papers a year for the last seven years, and not a fundamental piece of work in the lot. I sit around the living rooms of other young married faculty members talking infantile masturbation, who’s sucking up to the head of the department, or who’s tenure is hanging by a thread. Emily’s quit content to go on with this life. She insists that she’s in love with me…whatever that is. What she really means is that she prefers the senseless pain we inflict on each other, to the pain we would otherwise inflict on ourselves.”
“But I’m not afraid of that solitary pain. In fact, if I don’t strip myself of all this clatter and clutter and ridiculous ritual…I shall go out of my mind.”~Dr.Ed Jessup
From Paddy Cheyefsky’s, “Altered States”

Remember the rockafellers,who financially support(control) the american medical association,all major Ivy league universities,were the family that took over the mind control experiments and torture of americans through the CIA/NSA MK ULTRA programs that the Church senate commitee ordered shut down,circumventing U.S. government law decree’s protecting our civil rights. Dr. Rockafeller got his come-uppens just recently in a plane crash,planned or not,his past actions were those of a traitor to the American people and the United States.

In a world that can grow food for ten times the population if it so choose to,why are we preparing our brightest and most promising for famine and social degeneration. Since the grants that keep our university system going are provided for by the foundations that also control the federaL banking industry I detect a negative influence on our future prospects as Americans,perhaps scaring our youths into forgetting about humanitarian pursuits with their education and use it to align themselves with the upper 1 percent “winners” before its too late. So much for the university sphere of enlightenment. This is what happens when you allow private industry to decide what to spend the tax dollars they owe on rather than making them pay their tax debts directly to the government and let the peoples representatives decide how to support and develope our educational system.
There’s always been Mickey Mouse courses to let the less intelligent get a taste of uni and the politicians put out “great ” figures about participation in higher education. As long as employers know what to do with job applications from Zombie Studies graduates no harm done 🙂
Par for course in Amerika.
Is not there a statement attributed to Samuel Clemens aka Mark Twain: “I never Let My Schooling Interfere With My Education”. Aren’t these the nitwits who have always seek to be our masters. Who have used Aristotle, Ptolemy and others to maintain their power over us. And never let reality interfere with their fantasies it’s wonder we are not cowering up a tree or cave still if it was up to these idiots we would. OVER SCHOOLED UNDER EDUCATED BRUTES.
Maybe a college course centered around science fiction and history novels might not be bad. At least the students might learn real science and history instead of the pseudo-science-history they being indoctrinated in now.
Even if there turns out to be no life out there, until Jean Luc Picard is not only not a fictional character but not an unusual human, we have no business in space. Bad enough what we do here. We need to concentrate on becoming better earthlings.
Also, strikes me that this could turn out to be perfect for us. It could hasten the day when enough of us see radically overpriced indoctrination as ludicrous and… and just plain begin doing better….
