The Value of Education: Reply to Sean Gabb
In your last paragraph you actually state the reality of intellectualism: its inability to come to solutions. This is the basic difference between leadership styles of Barack Hussein Obama – and his acolyte Hillary Clinton – and say Donald Trump. Donald Trump finds solutions to problems while Barack keeps compounding the problems with no solutions in sight.
Too many intellectuals believe that education in the classroom is the greater resource, while intelligent people believe in the education you learn outside the classroom is just as great or greater than what you learn inside the classroom.
My thinking is that when we are far too much in our heads with learning things that are irrelevant to our making life better for ourselves that’s really bad for us. People in the west seem to scorn those who have little education in the classroom and the classics without realizing historically that the classroom of life is the education we receive in life is really the greater education.
Obama has no ability at skilled negotiation and neither does Hillary. In their view the negotiation is about deception and deceiving others. Trump believes that skilled negotiation is about dealing with your own strengths and the strengths of others. He despises weak willed people who have no ability to communicate and must rely on deception, threats and intimidation. Enemies quickly realize that people like Obama and Hillary will capitulate easily because they need to make their tactics work quickly otherwise they know they will fail. They (Democrats) have been failures at life and so they are failures at every other thing. Obama was a mediocre student at best and it would have been better had he been a complete failure and run off to the circus, he might have actually done better as a person. Instead all he learned was how to become corrupt and indecent.
My view is that the worst form of failure is the intellectual who cannot grasp the intelligent reality of our world. Intellectuals like Obama and Hillary see the world unrealistically and when the world comes crashing down on them they fail to react intelligently. Benghazi and Fast & Furious are prime examples of the unreality of their world and their choices. As a result people died needlessly in both examples and then like intellectuals often do they go into denial and when denial doesn’t work they lie. The reason being is because they cannot cope with the reality of the world around them. They live fantasy lives because they cannot connect with the reality of the intelligent world around them.
There are several kinds of vulgarity. The first vulgarity are those uneducated drug and alcohol addicted louts whose every second word is “Fuck” and they are unimaginative creatures that will never see themselves as what they really are. Everyone around them is stupid because they don’t understand their uneducated reality. To them everything is simplistic because they don’t have a hope in Hell to learn much of anything education wise.
The second vulgarity are intellectuals who all too often see their own educational reality as the only reality, anyone who doesn’t follow that plan is not worth bothering to speak to. They close themselves off to others who can often help make sense of their reality and help them come to solutions they have no hope in Hell of achieving, but they live in closed societies where they only talk to their intellectual selves and refuse to listen to any advice from other quarters.
The third vulgarity are people who perpetuate victimhood of themselves and minority others. They are often as crude and crass as any of the lesser beings who don’t know better, we can always feel sorry for those who don’t know better, but those who should we can feel no true sympathy or empathy for them. All too often they have higher education though they exhibit crassness and crudeness in the classroom that youth seem to gravitate, too. They are generally not as well educated because they more than likely were mediocre students without any real ambition. Better to let the state look after them so they get degrees where they teach or do some other mundane thing like politics where intelligent thinking is out of the question. It’s the one ability they do seem to have to get the best pension schemes and easiest way out of life, or having anything to do with intelligent life. Truly it’s not all of them, but the majority is more likely the truth. If they had no education they would be on welfare, whatever is the easiest and laziest way out.
The Godless! If you were going to be a good little intellectual the first thing that usually goes is faith in God, again not every intellectual follows this path. With the end of faith in God goes the willingness to moral persuasion. It’s the old, “Hey, there’s no God so we can fucking anything we want.” We can swear, we can watch pornography, we can do drugs and alcohol to excess and who gives a rats fuck about our kids, the state will look after them after we’re too fucked up to care for them ourselves. And while we’re at fucking up our kids let’s be teachers and fuck up everybody else’s kids while we’re at it. The fun and joy we can have fucking up the world around is simply because we’re a bunch of Godless shits.
The working class people generally have a better scope of education intellectually and intelligently. They are good with and to their neighbours, school systems and with family. Most have well structured families, give their kids spankings when they need it and do right by themselves and their families. Most never swear in front of their kids or have to put cash in the jar every time they do, my son-in-law contributes regularly. On the other hand my daughter gets upset when I say the word “Frick” and my grandson catches the fact that I didn’t actually swear and kept it civilized. On the other hand he missed the little English girl, really cute and she has such a crush on my grandson, when she called him a “sausage.” She called him a sausage, clever girl, because he did something very rude that I had to get quite angry with him over. I actually had to explain later to my daughter what she meant by the word “sausage” and she couldn’t believe that her mother would let her use such expressive language, even if she didn’t understand it. I do wish my daughter was more clever and less intellectual. She can really be quite annoying when she fails to understand the simplest things.
As for me I can be quite crass and crude at times depending on my mood swings. I’m educated from both ends of the street. University, college and the school of hard knocks and I’m not above knocking someone about when necessary even at my age. The fact is that I pay attention to the details and quite adept at reading between the lines. I know when someone is lying and telling the truth. Can tell the intellectuals from the intelligent and those who are a bit of both. You do have to understand that to me not everyone who has education from institutions is intelligent. That’s because too many intellectuals hide themselves away in their own enclaves away from the real world and the intelligent. They see things from a very limited perspective. So, while your attending all this fancy lectures please continue to learn from others who have skills in life. You will learn they have more than just a skill, but have a worldly view that is quite poignant and reflective of reality. My own writing skills pales to your own, but I see things with my eyes wide open and with clarity of the purpose of others. One must be able to find solutions to problems as much as have questions to the problems to come up with a solution, one without the other is a rather useless exercise in intellectualism. The latter we see all the time by our political leaders who rarely have a solution to the problems, but have an ability to make the problems much worse in scope.
Think on this in an intelligent manner: problem = solution. In an intellectual manner the equation is: problem = no solution or creation of a bigger problem.
How does this work in real life? Simple, take the equation from the standpoint of western leadership: Islamic terrorism in the west = more Muslim immigration. That’s how we can go from bad to worse. Not a solution; just adding to the problem. Why? Because we know that Islam creates 99% of all terrorism in the world and is backed up hundreds of Sura’s in the Qur’an and the Sunnah. The obvious solution to protect one’s own nation, and Israel does this quite well, is not to let Muslims live in your country. It’s just a simple solution that doesn’t create any more problems. You cannot miss this reality in France, Germany Britain and Scandinavian countries today. More Muslims = more terrorism.
