4. But...but...but

That kind of educational system doesn't train kids to be good little workbots who are happy to do whatever is required of them without question and have no curiosity beyond who will win this season's American Idol or Super bowl. Who would never question what is fed to them by the powers that be and their media conglomerates. Who accept any lie or manipulation of the truth, no matter how outrageous it sounds, without the slightest bit of research or doubt. And what is this Equity they speak of? What kind of Commie idea is that? How would the superior class be distinguished from the "underlings" if there were no private schools to weed out the chaff? We can't allow the commoners to have the same opportunities as the wealthy. That's just Un-American. That would never work here.
