I want to show you a video from Youtube from the Freedom in Thought channel.
This video presents the critical thinking topic. The school doesn’t teach us one of the most important thing in life – critical thinking. There is no creativity without critical thinking, there is no innovation without creativity. Our world needs thinkers who will be creative, who will be able to change and improve our world. We need more people like Copernicus, Galileo, Newton or Einstein.
Unfortunately, today’s public education plays the indoctrination role. Instead of useful things, students are loaded with unnecessary information. I went to school myself and I know that school is complete waste of time. The archaic system invented in Prussia doesn’t work completely in today’s world.
We have internet. We have mobile phones on which we can learn about every thing humanity has invented with a few taps on the screen. Every day we carry all the knowledge of humanity in our pockets. Thus, memorizing dry information at school is completely idiotic and unnecessary.
Unfortunately, so far nothing is expected to change the situation. We must learn to function in today’s world and not to succumb to public schools’ indoctrination.
I highly recommend this video.
