Education Is NOT The Same As Schooling (by LearnLiberty)
Did high school ever feel somewhat like a prison? Did it ever feel like being in a machine that had its own purposes and goals separate from yours? This feeling is not uncommon, and an examination of the development of the school explains why. Rather than being a tool to educate, the school as we know it today started as a way to produce obedient and loyal subjects, soldiers, and workers. It was never intended to develop the mind in any meaningful way. Education and schooling are often conflated, but there are many important distinctions between the two. Prof. Steven Davies argues that schools are not suited for educating and it is high time we move away from the idea of the school as the only option for delivering education.
Puppet Economics Episode 1: The Pokemon Parable (Inflation is Theft)
How could an ultra-rare and valuable Pokemon card be stolen from a mega secure bank vault without the use of a lock-pick, dynamite, safe cracker or even a thief?
Today on Puppet Economics, Dadoo introduces Sophia to the principle of inflation and it’s subtle form of theft.
Austrian economist Ludvig von Mises defined inflation as:
“an increase in the quantity of money (in the broader sense of the term, so as to include fiduciary media as well), that is not offset by a corresponding increase in the need for money (again in the broader sense of the term), so that a fall in the objective exchange-value of money must occur.” (1920, Theory of Money and Credit, page 240)
Sophia learns what happens to the value of her most prized Pokemon card when the printing press is used to dramatically increase the supply of her once rare card.

To many Americans, education is one of the religions they really believe in. It has its orthodoxy, its pontiffs, its noble buildings. Education is the Established Church of the United States.

:::great example of “schooling”…just like a “school” of fish…certainly noteducation, as conclusion based learning hinges on the logical fallacy “Ad Verecundiam” or “Appeal to Authority”…this alone illuminates the fact that compulsory schooling is about instilling the most dangerous superstition known as “authority”
