Education is not about teachers, but about simulated intelligence.
In the past, education has been claimed to make people smarter. Now they claim it exposes the "smartness" of the youths that was always there. The truth is it doesn't change intelligence at all.
Teachers need new ways to input information even if the student doesn't care, like being voluntarily hypnotized or brainwashed. Or just extremely powerful new metaphors.

From time to time, there are news stories of men going on shooting sprees. So far, these have been relatively crazy guys going berserk, symptoms of a dysfunctional society. No political retaliations by almost normal guys with nothing more to lose. Not yet. Maybe not ever.
