Random Thought of the Day
Two areas of knowledge whoafully inadequate in Americans nowadays, especially in the younger generation, are history and basic economics/personal finance. You see it every day as half the country seems to be embracing big government socialism despite its repeated record of dismal failure. And you see, for example, massive whining because people can’t understand that $100 extra each paycheck but $500 less in tax refund makes you far better off overall. Of course, the media feed this ignorance, but also you see it in underemphasis in our educational system. Curricula rarely change, teaching useless skills to the average American as trigonometry, biology of protista, and average rainfall in African countries instead of how to invest, balance a checkbox, minimize taxes, etc. Given that this ignorance leads to more government spending, taxation, and control over our lives, one has to wonder, is it all by design?
