Schooling was designed to indoctrinate society

In Australian classrooms, poorly trained teachers remain largely incompetent to the greater vision of education -- designed by an oligarchy of thinkers to create a workforce of slaves over a century ago.

Politically correct culture and the anti-democratic nature of ‘hate speech’ censorship is on the rise in Australia, as persistent proponents of a new age of ‘tolerance’ push the dogma that a hierarchy of ideas exists — some superior and some that need to be suppressed.

Conflating criticisms of beliefs with criticism of believers, a new society of language policing is slowly emerging, as ideological labels are used to dress up the latest manifestation of the collective impulse to gag other human beings from expressing opinions.
