"Biggest brain we ever saw - obviously you belong in the streets!"
All I have to consider is two little words derived from the workplace - office politics - and this very-important failure in American education, oft repeated here, doesn't matter anymore:
A nation of critical thinkers wouldn't need to be told this
Nope - you either have it or you don't - and most currently employed adults don't have it now. Evidence: office politics.
Raising a nation of failures wasn't OUR goal (or doing)
And that's why we're so fucked up. Why Americans can still argue over things as brain-dead simple as reparations. Our people can't think or reason, relying instead on misinformation and their feelings.
"I think I'll need to see a resume' for this dishwashing position!"
So, until they really want some critical thinkers in the workplace - and will show their commitment to it through firing (or re-training) those who aren't - we'll keep bumbling along, rewarding the lost for losing their minds.
400 years of playing Whack-A-Mole with American lives should be enough
