History- It's good to understand how colossally brutal and fucked up the world has been, so as to make people vigilant about how nasty human nature can be under the right conditions. It's fucking pointless to memorize (and promptly forget) every last battle, famous person, rebellion, etc....

History in school should be renamed "How socialism destroys societies and kills millions" and be taught as such.

You're very right about the rest of it too. It never made sense to me that in high school we did one hour of each lesson per day.

Go to a different class. Get out your books/get changed (p.e.). Wait for the stragglers. Start. Run out of time. Pack up your books/get changed. Go to a different class.

Why not do Maths on Monday. Science on Tuesday. P.E on Wednesday. etc etc.

Why is everyone dragged along at the same pace? What's the point of failing a kid at maths from years 8 through 12? Why not dump them back in the class they failed with the younger kids so that by the time they get to age 17 they at least have a pass on year 9 maths. And who knows, maybe the mere threat of being dropped in with the younger kids will compel them to lift their game.

A person could get the strange impression that our education system is designed specifically to fail, or at very least it's designed to cater to the teachers union rather than the student's needs.

God demands of Man responsibility. God demands of Woman vulnerability. These are their curse and blessing alike. Libertianism is to Man as Feminism is to Woman.
