Aristotle would be banned from Twitter if he were alive today.

Aristotle would get banned from Twitter but Socrates would own it.

This was from ancient times.

Children weren't subjected to mandatory public brainwashing.

Education was considereding a privilege.

    You think children are too stupid to know they're being told rubbish?

    12 years of brainwashing convinces most, though.

    They won't say so and let adults believe what they want, because any other stance would not be to their advantage. A 9y old knows very well which way the wind blows, but she sure as hell won't let any adult know what she thinks, unless with really good parents.


    I say she because boys take more time, and not because they're dumb, but because they can. Girls need to know what's what much earlier.

    Agreed. However, female socialization sometimes works against them. They feel additional pressure to conform.

    Generally, females have a better understanding than makes about of how power actually works.

    This is probably because females are generally more oppressed than males.

    It's worth mentioning that females develop more rapidly than males. Physically and socially.

    This can be and advantage or a disadvantage; depending upon the degree of fairness, justice, and economic security that is available in the females development.

    You're working with different data. Bombadil there is right as for US conditions. If you got it better in your area good for you.

    I went to the public brainwashing, and I'm comfortable with my dyslexia. ;-)

    This is for the people who I think are falling for the right and left divide. I think you might appreciate some insight from Aristotle.

    It's Aristotle talking about the way intelligent minds are able to entertain an idea without accepting it, kind of like the way we speculate the whole time without accepting the theories as true.

    The idea is to accept an idea, roll with it, test it out, before deciding if it fits or not.

    Not knee jerk responses, not rejection without consideration.

    Educated, civilised, thoughtful.

    Something 8chan was great at. well, apart from the 'civilised' bit. A grinding maw of intelligence.
