"Schools train people to be ignorant with style. They give you the equipment you need to be a functional ignoramus. American schools do not equip you to deal with things like logic, they don’t give you the criteria by which to judge between good and bad in any medium or format, and they prepare you to be a useable victim in a military-industrial complex that needs man power. As long as your just smart enough to do a job and just dumb enough to swallow what they feed you your gonna be all right. But if you go beyond that, your gonna have grave doubts that will cause stomach problems and head aches. Make you wanna go out and do something else. I believe that schools mechanically and very specifically try and breed out any hint of creative thought in the kids that are coming up."
