What do you believe in?

– How could I agree that the form of rule is irrelevant and only liberties as practical impersonation of freedom justify the need of government? Well, I esteem this is not a legit claim at all! I walk and talk and socialize, and when I do, I listen. That is great part of our vocation as thinkers. I need a critically assessed feedback from reality at all times. And what I see in this Faculty of Thought, and not only here but at all venues of critical inquiry, is the belief in one intricately concocted truth, formulated and reserved for the learned mind, elevated to the state of a self-fulfilling prophesy.

From “On Government”

– Indeed, Daniel, our wise lady here is right. – The inquirer admitted. – If we were in the condition of submersion under another will’s control, the political process would still exist, but quite limited to the obnoxious forms of tyranny and despotism. However, we witness much cleverer means of control where the individual is led to believe that its will is of utmost importance for the institutionalized order, thus being shrewdly manipulated that it is in control of the government and not the other way around.

How are we “framed”?

I shall start and we’ll see where it will all go. First, I feel I must point out that education is a constituting activity of establishing the fundamental patterns which would direct the operation of the mind as a whole; exactly as we claimed it to be – it is formation, rooted and aimed into the shaping of the mind itself. We may think of it as the rendition of institutionalized forms of accredited knowledge or as the transmission of established conceptual views through time, and these notions are all inherent to the educational domain, but first and foremost, to me, education is the one way devised by the mind to shape other minds within the frame of social acceptance and expectancy.
