Noam Chomsky

Noam Chomsky quotes and videos!

“The whole educational and professional training system is a very elaborate filter, which just weeds out people who are too independent, and who think for themselves, and who don’t know how to be submissive, and so on – because they’re dysfunctional to the institutions.” ~ Noam Chomsky

"Education is a system of imposed ignorance." ~ Noam Chomsky [Manufacturing Consent: The Political Economy of the Mass Media]

"Hundreds of billions of dollars are spent every year to control the public mind." ~ Noam Chomsky

"The school system is designed to teach obedience and conformity and prevent the child’s natural capacities from developing." ~ Noam Chomsky

“Students who acquire large debts putting themselves through school are unlikely to think about changing society. When you trap people in a system of debt, they can’t afford the time to think. Tuition fee increases are a “disciplinary technique,” and, by the time students graduate, they are not only loaded with debt, but have also internalized the “disciplinarian culture.” This makes them efficient components of the consumer economy.” ~ Noam Chomsky
