Education And The Owners Of America

Transcript of Video

George Carlin

If you talk to one of them about this, if you isolate one of them, sit em’ down rationally, you talk to em’ about low IQ’s, and the dumb behavior and the bad decisions - right away they start talking about education.

That’s the big answer to everything. Education. They said we need more money for education, we need more books, more teachers, more classrooms, more schools, we need more testing for the kids. You say to them well you know we tried all of that and the kids still can’t pass the tests.

Ahhh don’t you worry about that, we’ll gonna lower the passing grades. That’s what they do in schools nowadays, they lower the passing grades so more kids can pass. More kids pass - the school looks good - everybody's happy - the IQ of the country slips another two, three points and pretty soon all you’ll need to get into college is a f*ckin’ pencil. Got a pencil? Get the f*ck in there, its physics.

Then everyone wonders why seventeen other countries graduate more scientists than we do - EDUCATION. Politicians know that word they use it on you. Politicians have traditionally hidden behind three things - the flag, the bible and children – no child left behind, no child left behind. Oh really? Well it wasn't long ago you were talking about giving the kids a head start – head start – left behind – someones losing f*cking ground here.

But there's a reason, there's a reason for this, there's a reason that education SUCKS and it’s the same reason why it will never ever, ever be fixed. Its never gonna get any better, don’t look for it, be happy with what you got.

Because the o-w-n-e-r-s of this country don’t want that. I’m talking about the real owners now, the big, the wealthy, that, the REAL owners, the big wealthy business interests that control things and make all the important decisions. Forget the politicians, they're, they're irrelevant.

The politicians are put there to give you the idea that you have freedom of choice. You don’t. You have no choice. You have owners. They OWN YOU. They own everything. They own all the important land, they own and control the corporations. They long since bought and paid for the senate, the congress, the statehouses, city halls, they got the judges in their back pockets. And they own all the big media news companies so they control just about all the news and information you get to hear. They got you by the BALLS.

They, they spend billions of dollars every year, lobbying, lobbying to get what they want. Well we know what they want. They want more for themselves and less for everyone else. But I’ll tell you what they don’t want. They don’t want a population of citizens capable of critical thinking, they don’t want well-informed well-educated people capable of critical thinking. They are not interested in that. That doesn’t help them. That’s against their interests.

That’s right. You know something, they don’t want people who are smart enough to sit around the kitchen table to figure how badly their getting f*cked by a system that threw them overboard thirty f*cking years ago. They don’t want that. You know what they want? They want OBEDIENT workers. OBEDIENT WORKERS.

People who are just smart enough to run the machines and do the paper work and just dumb enough to passively accept all these increasingly shittier jobs with the lower pay, the longer hours, the reduced benefits, the end of overtime and the vanishing pension that disappears the minute you go to collect it. And now they coming for your SOCIAL SECURITY money - they want your ****ing retirement money. They want it BACK - so they they could give it to their criminal friends on Wall Street.

And you something – they’ll get it. They get it all from you sooner or later, cause they own this f*cking place. It’s a big club and YOU AIN’T IN IT. You and I are NOT in the big club.

By the way it’s the same big club they use to beat you over the head with all day long when they tell you what to believe, all day long beating you over the head in their media telling you what to believe, what to think and what to buy. The table is tilted folks, the game is rigged, and nobody seems to notice – nobody seems to care.

Good honest hardworking people - white collar - blue collar, it doesn’t matter what color shirt you have on. Good honest hardworking people continue, these are people of modest means, continue to elect these rich c*cksuckers who don’t give a f*ck about you, they don’t give a f*ck about you, they don’t give a f*ck about you, they don’t care about you - AT ALL - AT ALL – AT ALL.

Man, you know - and nobody seems to notice – nobody seems to care. That’s what the owners count on, the fact that Americans will probably remain willfully ignorant of the big red, white and blue d*ck that’s being jammed up their *ssholes everyday. Because the owners of this country know the truth – its called the American dream – cause you have to be asleep to believe it.
