Stolen Quote: Foreigners

Since every effort in our educational life seems to be directed toward making of the child a being foreign to itself, it must of necessity produce individuals foreign to one another, and in everlasting antagonism with each other. ~ Emma Goldman, Anarchist

  1. Especially now a days where they’re not even teaching kids how to write in school anymore. I just found that out recently and was shocked. Kids don’t know how to sign their own names.

    As far as the rest of this…I understood the word “gibberish.” I wonder why that would be.

    1. Okay I’ll do my best to come to Emma’s defense. When schools make us all the same, it goes against our nature, because we are all unique individuals (like unicorns). And when we go against our nature it makes us foreign to ourselves and to one another. Thus, by being the same, we are different. Though not uniquely different. Ah shit, sorry Emma, but I tried.
