The education vs ideology paradox
So, we all know that most colleges and universities are quite “liberal” (as in leftist). Not everyone falls in line but a whole lot of people there believe more government is the solution to common societal problems. These people have a lot of education but limited real world experience. The ones who don’t buy into the ideology are completely apathetic about it, not against it.
On the other side, the people (that claim) willing to fight against tyranny should the time come are mostly blue collar, educated in a trade or some specific profession. They’re smart but don’t have the knowledge based education.
Now, hypothetically, if something was added to our food, water, vaccine whatever, those willing to resist wouldn’t even know where to start. Those who can figure it out.. wouldn’t use it to fight back.
This came to me after I came across one too many crackpot conspiracies about the covid vaccine. I was like, what if, hypothetically, that they did put something in it. You can give me a home lab, you can give me a list of ingredients. I wouldn’t know what’s wrong until it’s too late.
It wouldn’t matter how much I prep, how many guns I own. I wouldn’t know who or what I was fighting against, or when.
