Don't want to buy products from big corperations? Don't fucking buy them, that simple, no one is forcing you to do so. This is a problem of people being cheap and greedy, it's not like the government is saying "buy these products or we'll take you to room 101"
And yes the US education system is shit, all that means is you have to stop being a lazy fuck and take time to self educate yourself. That or pay to get into a good school, there's hundreds of private schools and universities in the US, Canada, ext... If the government truly wanted people to keep citizens uneducated do you honestly believe they would allow such institutes to exist?
Denouncing the government on the street will make you look like a psycho? It will if you stand on a soap box screaming random shit into a megaphone. If you actually set up a booth and have plenty of proven facts and counter arguments to back up your theories and ideals so you appear more like a rational human being than a half-baked conspiracist.

But the plight of the capitalist system forces us to buy these products. If we don't, we have to go without necessities or drive ourselves into poverty buying homemade products.
The education is shit, and many kids are incapable of teaching themselves. They don't know enough to teach themselves and are content with ignorance. The future is being oppressed, many kids don't seek higher education because the government makes it so hard to attain. Kids are taught that they live in the backwoods, or the ghetto, or anywhere like that and that they can't escape that.
Even reasonable facts are looked upon with scorn. If you had reasonable evidence that 9\11 wasn't entirely what it was made out to be, you would be shunned. Because to question the word of the government is insane, or paranoid. The government and corporations that lobby in the government don't give a fuck about you, its all money.
Maybe the government isn't what oppresses us in its entirety. It's society as a whole, we are taught that we are what we were born as and we can't change our fate. Poor will forever be poor unless you're willing to crush people around you. We perpetuate what our government wants. Our minds are oppressed. Oppression isn't an outright thing, it's a subtle thing that manifests in society.

You work to buy the necessities you need, in a socialist system it's essentially the same except you work to pay the taxes to get the necessities you need. It doesn't matter what system you live in, you must work to live (except anarchy I suppose in a way you do have to work to commit cannibalism).
The only thing you need to learn is how to read and you could become the smartest man on earth, men who never even went to school managed to become amazing things. The only thing holding them back are what they believe to be their own limitations and that my friend is completely dictated by your own view of yourself.
And I suppose they are, but your entitled to them completely and no one can (although some surely will attempt to) stop you or change your mind. The thoughts of a man are completely his own and the government does nothing to change your mind or get rid of you.
You said the magic word twice, "society," the government isn't the massive oppressive being we think it is, the honour belong completely to the majority. Perhaps this does assist the government in keeping the people in check, I won't deny the government is completely pure and doesn't want some small advantage, but in reality we could completely get rid of the government and almost nothing would change due to human nature. I mean there might be a bit more cannibalism and rape here and there but it still be just as oppressive.
