6. Points directly to why so many Americans can't think,

reason, or read well anymore. Add in monopolized, entertainment- saturated media, structural racism, enormous inequality and no wonder people are so apathetic they don't follow issues or vote, or they're uninformed and hateful and vote for cons and abusers.
"I must study politics and war that my sons may have liberty to study mathematics and philosophy. My sons ought to study mathematics and philosophy, geography, natural history, naval architecture, navigation, commerce, and agriculture, in order to give their children a right to study painting, poetry, music, architecture, statuary, tapestry, and porcelain." ~ John Adams, 1780 letter.
