We are now 4 generations deep in 'short term thinking' education. Our senators, our congressmen were mostly taught what to think, not how to think. Thanks to the Frankfurt School exiles fleeing execution from Germany, our entire educational system is corrupted by it. Public Education has been cranking out minions for just about 40 years now. There's a lesson in open immigration for you. No critical thinking skills. Critical thinkers are a danger to their agenda. There are of course notable exceptions. Rather than fight, observant parents pulled their children into private school or home schooled. Frankfurt had no resistance what so ever, it vacated the public schools. Now the country is left with dysfunctional, tribal group think.
