The schools are the mechanism of the virus. And what percentage of what
you learned in school allows you to operate within a social environment?


You forgot to mention that "school" no longer fulfills the role
for which it was initially developed. Most people recieve their
cultural training through the television. One of the reasons
parents resist extending school hours is the perception that
children should have "free-time" in order to play and "do
as they will" before entering the dull work-a-day life of
quiet desperation that awaits them.

And what do those children do with that "free-time" so kindly
protected their parents? They watch TV...where they learn
how to live a dull work-a-day-life of quiet desperation.
