Looking back at my thirteen years in the American public school system and four more years at the University Of Maryland, I have come to the realization that it was an utter waste. Nothing I do today which serves me in work, women, life, or leisure can be traced back to what I was taught in school. I must therefore conclude that being educated in America was the most harmful event in my life.

My parents pushed me hard into attending university. I didn’t question their well-intentioned urgings because I had no idea what else to do. I eventually picked microbiology out of a black hat, which served me for six years after college until quitting for good. On my visit to the States last year, the topic of my education came up in a conversation with my father. I remarked how I would have been better off not going to college.

“But university did help you,” he said. “It taught you how to think.”

I didn’t question his rebuttal at the time, but now I’m certain he was incorrect, because my education didn’t even teach me how to read or write.

I couldn’t read properly until I was about 24 or 25 years old; I simply did not have the ability to properly parse and analyze difficult texts, and my abominable SAT verbal scores, which were below average, could verify that to you. I had trouble understanding basic assigned literature like Catcher In The Rye or The Grapes Of Wrath. My brain didn’t care for understanding the symbolism, motifs, or even the plot.

I also could not write. Well, I could write for the teacher who ordered me to hit a certain word count, but my grades in English classes only proved that I was averagely literate and able to convey someone else’s ideas without introducing too many grammatical errors, but not much more. A 19th century London schoolboy had more writing skill than I did when I was legally allowed to gamble and drink alcohol.

Anything else in school I developed competency on—calculus, physics, biology—was mechanical and based on stenciled learning that any average mind could handle with enough prodding. Either I copied the instructor’s methods for solving a problem or memorized facts and equations as if I was a robot. Up to my graduation, I had not developed one original idea or sentence of writing that is worth exposing to you right now. You can even mention specific classes I took in college and I will be unable to relay one fact I learned from them, in spite of doing well enough on the exams. If I ever write my autobiography upon old age, I can skip the first 22 years of life when it came to my intellectual progress and not lose a speck of importance. My education taught me nothing I couldn’t have achieved on my own with a basic tutor, and if anything, it greatly inhibited my development.

Did the American educational system fail me, or did I possess a sluggish mind that chose not to bloom until gray hairs started appearing on my beard? Maybe a bit of both, but I look at what my younger brothers are studying in school (one is in middle school and the other in college), and I can only shake my head at how ill-prepared they will be for a world that is frightfully changing ever year. For my youngest brother, school is essentially a babysitter that teaches him a week’s worth of the most elementary math and science spread out to nine soul-numbing months under the guidance of a feminist headmaster, while my older brother is more fearful of bad grades and punishment from dad than being an apex achiever in a field that will give him self-sufficiency for life. They’re both screwed, but at least they won’t be alone—their classmates are floating in the same rickety lifeboats as them.

Actually there is one thing I learned in school that I use every week. It is my default approach to seeking truth and understanding this complex Earthly world. It is the scientific method:

scientific method

The scientific method, which I remember learning in the 9th grade, gave me everything I needed to solve problems on my own in all areas of life. The first time I used it outside of a school setting was at 22 years of age when I wanted to improve my sex life. I made the observation that a certain type of man was getting women and so I made hypotheses and changed my behavior to conduct real-life experiments that resulted in abundant fornication.

When my observations on women or relationships could not be understood, I sought the consul of books and other men. My book Bang is essentially a lab report from studying the American female Homo sapiens. This personal enthusiasm for experimentation has stayed with me since then, and I will always seek real-life confirmation of whatever behavior I urge upon myself or others.

But besides the scientific method, it was all for nothing. I say that without exaggeration—not a single lecture, factoid, graph, or equation I’ve learned in school has been marginally useful in my life since graduating 14 years ago. Even when I was employed as a microbiologist, more than 90% of what I used at work was learned through practical on-the-job training. I’m confident that at 15 years of age I could have done the same job as at 25, especially since I was essentially a glorified assembly line worker in the manner at which I conducted experiments handed down to me by my superiors.

What percentage of men in the past completed a formal education? Compare that with today’s perverse obsession to educate everyone using a one-size-fits-all model that jams facts into people’s ears as if force feeding someone on hunger strike. It’s no surprise that the only thing that accomplishes is creating adults who are good at basic trivia but not at solving problems or generating useful ideas. You can not educate thought into someone. You can not create a great thinker or an intellectual out of thin air. Education destroys original thought and muddles great minds, and mainly excels at creating zombies who march in step with all the other automatons after being indoctrinated to respect authority and, lately, Marxist ideas. Education has devolved into social brainwashing happy time for Westerners (and slut training centers for girls) and not much more.

If I have a son, he will receive a classical education from a dedicated tutor at no more than two hours a day. The rest of his time will be spent exploring nature, music, athletics, woodworking, art, and of course, the scientific method. The goal is not to fill his head with information and facts in the hopes that one day it will aid him, but to give him the tools and mental framework to tackle any problem he will face in life while allowing him to develop passions that make it all worth living. My education didn’t do that for me and for many other men, and what a regrettable waste it has been for us.

I feel you – I got some debt, not as much as many others. I could realistically pay that debt off and perhaps even make some assets. But the time and energy investment was not worth it. Western society teaches me that instead of getting a med degree, what the banksters and females will reward me for is compliance and spending all day on welfare with my sole job to get laid and impregnate as many females as possible so ben more people can sponge off the state. And at least the women have somewhat of a choice in this, though they are not connecting their actions with their consequences from mass sluthood to single motherhood and societal decline etc. Manginas don’t help either. Basically, if you try and be a productive and moral member of society, the mass of shit that is society itself, including the banksters all the way down to feminists and lower to welfare careerists, will all try and drag you down to their level. Well, Fuck Them. They are the problem with the human race, which is why humanity always ends up in the shit. I do believe in God, and I think he looks on shaking his head with sadness.

Blaming the scumbags who actually run society and make the decisions that shape and form and lead society and turn society into a stinking steaming pile of stupid excrement is not blaming “everyone else” for our problems. Actually, it is making the logical connection and tracing the problems back to their actual source, idiot. If we work and earn money, for example, and then some POS woman or government takes it away from us in an obviously unfair and unjust way, like the way a criminal would take it away from us, are we supposed to think that it’s just the breaks, that life is unfair and bad luck happens and criminals and women and government are just part of the natural landscape?

That pretty much exactly describes my situation as well. The parents naively wanted me to go to college, even though they couldn’t pay for it. I was too young and stupid to know better. College was a complete waste of time and money on all levels. Very little was learned, even less was accomplished. College was a major setback for me. Now I work for myself.

I came to the same conclusion too, in medical school, after stumbling on a book called ‘The Saber-Tooth Curriculum’ (by J. Abner Peddiwell), that describes current education as a system of rote indoctrination designed to keep the young out of the competitive job market for as long as possible, culminating in overt credentialism. It’s a quick & comical read, written in the 1920s, that accurately predicts the not-so-funny occurrence of WW2, the least funny part being that our current system continues to make the same now that we did then.

Med school is a scam, where we are indoctrinated to give the drug that makes Big Pharma cash, rather than the one that is best for the patient. It is depressing to come to this and many other conclusions, yet important. We will get paid less as gov’t/companies/banksters have clamped down on us, and this will reduce our autonomy to ALWAYS doing what they want. This, whilst somewhat a global phenomenon, is worse in the western industrialised nations, and just because many of our colleagues have a medical degree does not mean they’re thinking people – they’re just zombies who are good with remembering things and making associations.

Most younger people who take out loans for a college degree will never pay them off, now that the price of a degree has gone from free in the UK to 100 000 including living costs, over the course of 15 years – talk about price inflation! College for the last 30 years has always been a scam to hide unemployment numbers, whilst our jobs were being shipped overseas. We actually live in a depression like 1929, but it is hidden by smartphones, welfare etc.. until this system of things collapses in the next decade or so.

Unfortunately, we are more under control than most people realise which would alarm them. Also, do most people in the modern era have free will, if they are brought up from birth being bombarded with social media encouraging them to behave in certain ways, so they are effectively brainwashed/Stockholm syndromed into what the backers of such messages want? I could suggest you read propaganda by Edward Bernays (1925), which showed based on studies at that time in the UK and US that only 87% of the population think, and that by corralling like cattle these through indoctrination and feeding false information to the 13% thinkers, how you could control an entire society.

Very interesting. Unfortunately for the puppet masters, free thought will begin to challenge the information it’s being fed as it realizes it may be spurious. Fortunately for the puppet masters, they typically have enough resources and proxies to deflect the onslaught when the shit does hit the fan.

Homeschooling. Don’t pay a tutor for what you can do yourself. As Roosh said there’s little to be learned and I and my wife can relay those things to my two sons. We spend less than 2 hours a day and they are both motivated to explore different areas independantly which we nurture with our interest, time and money.

I had close to 1.6 million dollars spent on me from birth to getting an MD to be a licensed physician, some of it coming from a private entity, and I only have 30 000 in loans. I come from a UMC background, and to be competitive in medicine, you need to have money spent on a ton of extracurricular activities, as many others competing against you have them. Whilst I liked a lot of my education, was the ROI, the return on investment worth it?

I moved away from the UK to the US, as English/Welsh women doctors are often bitchy cunts. In the US, I’d have to do obamacare via the affordable care act, where I get paid peanuts and could never recoup all the money spent on my education. Not only that, but many of my classmates, especially the female ones, carry 500 000 loans which when interest accrues, means they will never pay back that loan in a lifetime! Which is why they drop out or are forced into an easier speciality, then expect mr Big Bucks to pick up the cheque, whether that be a rich boyfriend or someone else. Let’s not forget they are not having children and many hoe around, so only the welfare folk are having them, so this is a recipe for disaster, a la idiocracy.

So overall, whilst a doctor may not always be guaranteed a job everywhere, he/she can pretty much have an easier time getting one with their credentials. The only problem is that I have seen many friends make more than I have, though these jobs will soon disappear/get paid less, and those that make the big bucks have usually sold out their soul/time/country to the corporation that is destroying their very own country. So what makes for a good job for the younger generation:

(1) you do what the big man tells you

(2) you come from a background with connections

(3) you do what the big man tells you, or else

This obviously does not leave much of the younger generation with many options, who are always told its ‘their fault’ and that older generations did not lead to this kind of situation. Worse still, now in 2015, the top 80 people in the world own 50% of its wealth, not including the super big billionaires who for some reason never get added to such ‘official lists’. So money goes to money, and the middle class delusion becomes an even bigger dream as jobs are off shored, families are broken down, men get shafted and the world goes to shit.

This new paradigm we are entering into the west means that it has become an immoral dog-eats-dog society, with low trust. I think it is important to be moral, and it is also important to recognise that the society and the people within it are structured in a way, that especially the redpill man, and most other folk, will have no one really having their back. So make sure you can afford the return on investment on the choices you make, be involved in decisions that have an impact on your life, make a log of every text you send for women that you are seeing and whilst all our communications are monitored, make sure your official ones (Facebook etc) don’t have any material that would make a future employer fire you/get you in trouble. And if you can, find or make one of those few pockets in the west (usually in smaller towns/villages), where sanity persists to a better degree or WALK AWAY AND FIND A BETTER DEAL, YOU HAVE GOT TO BELIEVE YOU’RE WORTH IT.

I realize you were addressing Seth, but I can share this with you. My younger brother has always been of above average intelligence but in his case it works against him and he chose a more blue collar path as a police officer I believe to feel as if he “fits in” better with his friends and society. However eleven years ago my mother begged him to apply to medical school knowing of his aptitude and interest in medicine to which he refused. Six years ago when my father died she offered to use what remained of his insurance money (about $60K USD) to help finance him attending Physician’s Assistant school to which he has been looking into at the time, he refused. When he turned thirty last year, he had a long talk with me about his regret of not pursuing “real” medical school in 2004. I asked him why he did not, and he replied because of the debt (and we have to remember there were real interest rates back then unlike now). I said to him the Feds have shown us debt doesn’t matter anymore. They are playing chicken with Western civilization (if not all human civilization) and these sociopaths are getting away with it. They would sooner let the missiles fly then actually do what is best for the citizens because the current state of things can never be fixed and eventually the world as we know it will radically change, if not collapse. I said and on that day the people who survive will do so because of the real skills they possess and those without skills will likely perish in one way or another. We live in a dangerous part of human history and unlike say fifty years ago, our future is not so certain. If you possess the intelligence, aptitude, and discipline to handle medical school I say go for it. Push comes to shove you can always flea the country to escape creditors and start a new life with the skills to be a doctor in the East or in what remains of the West. Think long game.

I suppose it matters where you attend medical school and what you intend to do with it. Going that much into debt, to me, isn’t worth it unless the economic collapses and all debts are erased — unlikely to happen now or in the future. You also have to deal with the constraints put on you by the state and other parties, so slaving away isn’t a good return on the investment.

On the other hand, if you can attend medical school outside of your own country, or go into a less debt-ridden medical specialty that would pay off in rural areas or in the event of a collapse, then I’d consider that. Maybe go into mortuary science, if you can handle it. 😉

Med school in one place. Residency in another. Probably fellowship after that in another. If you’re trying to do something competitive, you WILL be moving. Who will move with you? Are you just going to be a nomad? I’m starting third year and that really depresses me. The girls in med school are lovely by and large but they think about these concerns too, and everyone worries about the debt.

Good article, though apart from hiring a private tutor there is the option of sending your kid to one of the excellent private schools in Switzerland, Germany or the UK at a cost of 10000$+/month. There strangely enough you are taught how to think and debate. Some elite colleges also offer (or offered a short time ago) useful education, but unless you have 20 mio. $ + in assets and send your son with Game to college to accumulate 200 notches for fun, then even most of those educational fields can be done differently as well.

The scientific method unfortunately is mostly perverted to an agenda-driven method, where studies are only supposed to confirm a hypothesis – contrary data is either changed, discarded, study is re-written despite contrary data or a study is simply not published. Thus the scientific method has become one more tool of propaganda in almost all areas of life.

Your second paragraph is for the most part correct. Having worked in academia I’ve seen my professor fudge data before. In public meetings he spoke proudly of the scientific method but in practice when no one is looking he’d stretch results as much as he could to get a publication. And in the “publish or perish” culture of academia, that is basically necessary to succeed.

There are only 4-5 I have checked out which fit my standards (Salem in Germany one I looked at in detail) – 98%+ of the rest are almost equal crap designed to be just expensive money-grubbing corporations for spoiled brats. There are reputed to be others, which are excellent, but I have not researched it enough. Also in some countries 10-15% are educated in private schools, which is ridiculous and telling that they were simply created to fleece the well-off, as in many countries the public schools are excellent (or were some 10-20 years ago).

Currently in most private schools you get either an education that is even significantly worse than in good public schools (as the schools are interested to make you look good in front of their parents) or they are on the same level as some public schools with the only advantage of having a student body coming from a more elevated class. So congratulations – you just spent 50k/year to have your kid get an education on the level of a US 1985 public school!

This is one of the reasons why I find that learning a language is one of the safest investments you can make during college (provided you don’t have other option than going to uni). Whereas in many cases you won’t need any knowledge on most modules you’re taught, a new language opens up countries to visit, women to bang and a different culture to soak up.

Classical marxism is different from cultural marxism. Or western marxism as some like to call it.
Its basically a heavy revision of materialist driven marxism. Taking the revolt of the proletarian to a different sphere. The Frankfurt school and the poststructuralist french philosophers understood that undermining and subverting the culture was key if society was to be transformed.
Marxism failed in the East but was succesful in the West. As evidenced by the rampant degeneracy in the US and its satelite states in Europe.

Marxism is pure evil. Just look at the Bolsheviks, the Cultural Revolution, the abysmal state of China’s environment, and let’s not forget North Korean concentration camps? I’d rather fuck Lindy West than be a political prisoner in the DPRK, and I’d rather shoot myself before making that choice.

Vladimir Lenin and Leon Trotsky hated Christians and delighted in murdering them, and you want us to believe that Marxists are pro-family? In actuality, the Soviets took a few steps away from ultra-Left politics when Stalin took over, and although he was still a ruthless murderer, he re-outlawed homosexuality and shaped Russia into an economic superpower with a space program, when a century earlier it was a country full of farmers. If it hadn’t been for Stalin, the Soviets would’ve buggered each other into AIDS-induced extinction, because Lenin and Trotsky were truer to Marx’s degenerate, moronic ideals. Of course, modern socialists want to push society as far left as possible.

Finally, some good political science on this thread.
Marxists, which predates feminism by 80 years, hates feminism becuase the latter is a selfish, middle-class dogma, creating dissension in the working class, and retarding class consciousness against the crooks that run our society.

Marxists are the biggest crooks of all. Marxism abolishes private property, and by doing that Marxism steals every thing from every one at one fell swoop.

It abolishes private property in the MEANS of PRODUCTION. It’s run on a social basis, just as in capitalism, but run democratically. The USSR was not democratic politically and at the top, unlike Western Marxism; however, even in the USSR, there was more democracy than in the U.S. on the shop floor.

Abolishing private property in the means of production effectively abolishes all private property. If you can’t produce for your self, you’re at the mercy of those who are in control of all production. If you can’t produce for others, others have no choice but to accept the monopolistic produce of the Communist Party. Democracy does not mean Liberty. The essence of Liberty is the limitation of government, and under Marxist communism there is no limitation on government, no limits that mean anything, anyway. Majorities are as oppressive as any other locus of power; what makes majorities worse is because they are more arrogant and pig headed and full of themselves than an individual tyrant is capable of being.

Marxism promotes family? WTF?!?!?!?!?! You could say that a form of non-Marxist non-atheist communism could be converted to promote family, but you’re lying if you’re saying that Karl Marx and Freddie Engels were pro-traditional family, dude. If you want to discuss the possibilities that’s great, but don’t pretend that Marxism does not deserve the anti-family reputation.

If Hemingway hated women, he had a certain justification to feel that way. Look up how he was brought up (if you can call it that) with a closet lesbian for a mother and a milquetoast walkover for a father – back in the days when a man was meant to be the king of his own home. Consider the fact he was literally left by his hypergamous first love in favour of a bad boy alpha.

I was just being facetious, echoing the insane shit I have heard from female English majors. Hemingway was an American icon, whose work stands on its own. He has withstood a ridiculous assault from Liberal Arts programs throughout the country.

I don’t bother with his novels. Some say it is his short stories which made him great, and this is what I believe. The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber, the Snows of Kilimanjaro, A Clean, Well Lighted Place. Doesn’t get any better than that.

No, Hemmingway loved women, but he wasn’t a fag. Most of his memes are “Men frienships are books, men-female friendships are chapters. He also liked sex, which is why English departments don’t have him read anymore.
Incidentally, Fry’s phony memoir, “A Million Littel Pieces,” copies Hemmingways style, and women ate it up…go figure.

I had a similar experience in my education. I was always told I was bright, but I did poorly in school for most of my time there. I had reading comprehension troubles and had to frequently go to a resource center (Which I don’t think did anything). I also remember coming close to failing art and music, considered 2 of the easiest classes, every year I was in school.

The thing is as an adult in my late 20’s now I make 100% of my income off art, graphic design, and my side gig of playing clubs in my band. So why is this? It’s because these classes, and really any class, didn’t engage me at all. I was being taught some really interesting things, but either the teachers completely sucked at their jobs or the atmosphere of the class was so soul sucking that I just sat there trying to make time go faster so I could get to lunch. I remember at 13 being in music class doing a terrible job of playing the trumpet and being in danger of failing. Yet I’d go home at night and teach myself guitar BY EAR. Within a year I considered myself a better guitarist, a skill I had taught myself, than I would a trumpet player, which had been taught to me over the course of 4 years by a public school teacher. I also found my reading comprehension *magically* improved when I began reading for pleasure. And that’s because I was reading something I WANTED to read, not because I HAD to read it.

I also found my penchant for learning increase exponentially once I graduated college. Now that I didn’t HAVE to learn I was free to learn because I WANTED to. And that’s very important, and I find I’m more capable of intellectual discourse and critical thinking than I ever was. For instance, I highly doubt I’d have discovered the red pill while still in the public school system or indoctrination camps of college.

On top of the brainwashing and time-wasting, education is huge business. Tens of thousands of young people go into lifelong debt every year hoping that their degree will lead to success.

That’s why when people boast of having multiple high-level degrees, I assume they must have a general base of knowledge covering a broad spectrum. What is the retention rate? 3-5%, maybe 10%? 20%+ if you’re a savant? Many here have taken calculus. Unless you use it daily, what is it doing for you? Rotting, that’s what.

Reading skills are important, math skills are important. Science is essentially based in math & reading, then drawing logical conclusions based on findings, logic is math, computer programming and law are based on logic, and word problems using language is the delivery agent for Algebra and the like… so really good reading and mastery of basic math is all that is necessary to qualify one to learn just about anything.

Not sure we can teach classes in discipline alone, but that’s really the final component.

I wholeheartedly agree with this. Highschool/college were not only a complete waste of time, they actively harmed my development. To this day, I truly believe that if I had spent that entire decade of schooling doing literally anything else (jerking off at home, committing petty crimes, watching paint dry, seriously anything), I would be better off.

A massive, massive waste I don’t think I’ll ever fully recover from.

Totally with you on this one. The modern education system is a hustle serving two main objectives:
1. keep the young out of the job market (eliminating competition)
2. creating jobs for the older ones (mainly women); education has become THE emancipation vehicle of choice for governments.

I can honestly say that 17/18 years of formal schooling didn’t bring me a single benefit. Pretty much everything i know is self taught or on the job training. On the other hand i did have to unlearn many faulty teachings i was spoon fed.

No one forces anyone to sit an a car , work in a cubicle and get fat and pay a mortgage . Im born and raised in USA and none of this applies to me. Granted too many fall into the trap but Its not difficult to think for yourself and make your own way .

Europe may seem like a nice choice now , but they have a negative birth rate and in lieu of having families they import sharia people to do their work and or receive welfare benefits , who in turn have several children . What will the results of those enlightened decisions be ?

You want to see the future of Europe and all their great artwork and culture. Look to Afghanistan and the beautiful 1000 year old buddha statues carved into a mountain sides. Wait you cant. Sharia people invaded and destroyed it all.

Schools today are merely training young boys to be obedient slaves to their feminist lord and masters, and this includes both public and private schools.

I’m a teacher in an American public school and you’re absolutely right. Our curriculum is not effective because we try to cover excessive information without providing the meaningful rich context which is vital for processing it. We are adapting national learning standards that are raising the bar but it will take us realizing that a valuable education should be a dialogue between teachers and students. We need to get away from our “banking” style of education where the students are empty vessels and the teachers deposit all the necessary information. We cannot forget the roles society, community and family play in educating young minds.

I doubt anyone has done what Roosh proposes to do with his kids (yet), but I do know of two families who did Cyber School. It’s akin to online public school. They offer a wide curriculum. Both guys are pleasant, well-adjusted. Both got full-tuition merit scholarships at the state public university which has a very solid program for science-engineering-really any major. One of those kids got a good job and the other went for engineering grad school–obviously he gets a stipend now as a graduate student. Sending those kids to Cyber School and being more active in their education verses most American parents, was a good decision.

My friend who had this upbringing and who has a job now also had an older sister who did the program. She also has a good job and she also had a full tuition merit scholarship. The parents both worked in both cases and just were very interactive with their kids at dinner and on weekends, making sure they were doing their studies, making sure they chose good classes.

No Roosh, you’re wrong. It wasn’t merely a “waste of time”. It actually was a HUGE LOSS to your future. Instead of learning a useful, modern competitive skill like web page design or software development when you were young and agile, you were crushed with bullshit obsolete crap. Today’s subjects, history, english, and most math are COMPLETELY obsolete in the modern economy.

I’m seeing this now with my own kids. 2 hours a night of homework — all of which is useless crap — so my kids don’t have time to learn the skills they want to master, modern digital skills.

It’s the cold dead hand of the elders, holding back the young.

By the way, I took my kids out of the local school system. I am joined by a huge out flux of other parents. Rats leaving a sinking ship. And, this was a very modern district by US standards.
