Ungh.

Does anybody already follow the news about the changes to the history books? How texas wanted intelligent design to be taught as a competing "theory" to evolution? or the increased mention of calvinism (who promoted the idea of god's chosen people) as a significant figure in history, and the relabeling of the slave trade in the US to the less offensive "Triangle Trade"?? Anybody miss the students protesting last year (or maybe it was earlier this year) to the overhauls to their text books?

And that's just when certain politicians get their hands involved. Imagine what happens when the corporations cut out the middle man and go for it themselves.

Just... no...


People start thinking they should water their plants with Gatorade?

I think so. People think the old will indoctrinate the new but I think there is a greater chance the opposite will occur. Kids have a real simple and sometimes common-sense way of looking at things that can help keep companies moving in the right direction. Simple is better. Sure they'll be barraged with product placement, buzz words and sponsored material but students these day are pretty good at cutting through the crap and getting to the meat of things.
