Education Kills Humanity
The aim of this study is to evaluate the educational system with nemonik thinking (Schade, Think Smarter with Nemonik Thinking, 2016). The system conditions students with certificates to maximize their probability of winning the educational competition. The winners are rewarded with advantageous positions in society, while the losers are doomed to serve the winners. Therefore, conventional thinking is conflict oriented, which fosters aggression, control, effort, and force. The conditioned compulsion to win arguments inhibits also the truth and, therefore, it corrupts conventional thinking. As a result, the educational system produces incompetent leaders and rebellious followers. That counterproductive combination fosters manmade problems such as climate change, continuous warfare, dwindling resources, environmental pollution, and overpopulation. Those problems cannot be solved with the same way of conventional thinking that has created them. In contrast, nemonik thinking aims for success, rather than winning. Success is to obtain what you seek and to escape what you suffer. Therefore, nemonik thinking is goal oriented, which fosters freedom, alignment, compassion, allies, and win-win strategies. You might be the best thinker in the world, but only nemonik thinking could make you the smartest thinker you can be.
