General ignorance, sloth, and widespread belief in the necessity of government, stem not from western philosophy, but from an inherently corrupt education system.
Mull this over for a moment: Government educating the masses.
The monopoly on legitimatized force, teaching the adults of tomorrow how and what to think. Disturbing.
Education should be a liberation of the inconsistencies and falsehoods in one’s mind, not just a building up of static information.
