Elephants are powerful animals,
able to lift logs with their trunks
and knock trees over using their heads.
You might think it strange then to fin
that elephants are usually kept tithe d
by their handlers with a length of rope
or small chain that they could easily break.
This IS because they have been conditioned.
This is accomplished by trainers through the
use of a heavy metal chain to tether the
elephants while they are still young.
The elephants learn during their development
that they cannot break the bonds and they
associate them with their limits, boundaries
and freedoms. Later, when they are fully grown
and are of adult size and strength, they still
believe they cannot break that bond and so,
they never really try.
From then on, only a rope is necessary to keep
them from breaking their bonds, freeing
themselves and realizing their true strength.
You do realize I am mat really talking about
elephants at all don' t you?

being raised and educated are just other words for brainwashed right? We even think it is the right way to brainwash our own children

So let us raise a generation of illiterate halfwits in order to end this fiendish cycle of indoctrination.

Ohe yeah, the things we learn in school! "Don't piss off the teacher, she's higher up than you." "Your grades matter, your skills do not." "PLEASE YOUR HIGER-UPS!"

I think it's all really a matter of perspective. I assume this is supposed to be about western society, which to be honest makes this pretty dumb, when you consider the slavery, human trafficking and abuse that goes on in other parts of the world.

Is it not arrogant to demand more freedoms when your society has more freedoms than anywhere else on the planet? When many others are denied the most basic rights, we demand freedoms that we really don't need, simply because we don't yet have them?

Many of us should be glad for the rope that tethers us, because it attaches us to the island of wealth and liberty in a world of discrimination and hardship.

We've climbed to the top of the mountain and are looking for ways to climb higher, but if we took a look down, we'd realize how high we already are.

I thought it was talking about religion raising people from a young age to believe things, but in your case yeah you're right.

Despises indoctrination, uses a parable to explain why.
