Much of our culture operates subjectively and are devoid of logic and reason because our government-run education system abandoned the classical education method long ago.
The three stages of a classical education…grammar, logic and rhetoric…have been reduced to the grammar stage alone. This stage is a period when children are naturally inquisitive and are given facts and information. Essentially input, input, input. With the elimination of the logic and rhetoric stages they’re taught what to think but not how to think.
This has brought about our postmodern culture which is driven by subjectivism and pure emotion. In essence, our public schools are creating generations of students who simply cannot think.
