The game education has become

Many students in Western countries cannot afford the extremely high tuitions and living costs for university education. A student or his/her parents may have to fish out up to $120,000 in Australia to get just a basic university degree if he/she does not qualify for a scholarship. The expenditure could be much higher if a student chooses to enter the more lucrative stream of medicine, engineering or law because they are considered lucrative professions.

Education costs in the United States and the United Kingdom are even higher, especially for foreign students who as a matter of rule have to pay more. This is the way the future is being engineered by the powers that be. This is one more step toward creating a super-indebted society, in which everyone owes something to the banks or some other pillar organizations, and are effectively enslaved for the rest of their lives, working at whatever jobs they can get without questioning the basics or fundamentals.

A Western-style education system and the media surrounding it teach people not just what to think, but what not to think-not just what to question, but what not to question.

And in reading about a culture, it is important to know and understand not just what is said, but also what is not said. Often, the latter is more important than the former.
