Half Sigma likes to emphasize that socially conservative ideas don’t appeal to “well-educated”, intelligent, or affluent people. Intelligence and affluence are easily measurable and observable phenomena, but education usually just means having attended an institution for a given period of time.
I was reading a column in a paper today, and the writer commented on how well a gay marriage issue had done with “young, well-educated” voters. These voters can be observed and measured to be young, but are they well-educated?
If you believe homosexuality is normal and healthy, and homosexuals should be allowed to marry each other, you are clearly not well-educated. You are either anti-educated- indoctrinated to believe something that is obviously wrong- or a fool, or both.
Half Sigma does however appreciate that education is largely a social, and socializing experience. It is largely about learning what the right sort of people, the people who run things believe, and learning how to act around them.
But “education” that produces plainly anti-life attitudes is destructive and benefits no one. People of normal and healthy mentality have to suffer through this and learn how to lie to be accepted as members of polite society. “Education” that produces fools and liars is no such thing.
