Carlin Said Businesses Don’t Want Informed, Educated People Capable Of Critical Thinking. He’s Right.

George Carlin:

“[Big wealthy business interests] don’t want well-informed, well-educated people capable of critical thinking. … You know what they want? Obedient workers, people who are just smart enough to run the machines and do the paperwork but just dumb enough to passively accept all these increasingly shittier jobs with the lower pay, the longer hours, reduced benefits, the end of overtime and the vanishing pension that disappears the minute you go to collect it.”

“They don’t care about you … at all … at all … at all.”

Diabetes, heart disease, cancer, arthritis … all of these chronic diseases are preventable. They don’t suddenly appear because our genes encoded them. The environment we put people in fosters them. But that environment makes some people very rich, which provides them the influence to perpetuate it.
