Thoughts for this morning: The challenges to reasoning for ourselves

I was reflecting on a clip tilted:  Most Americans brainless and obedient

It may be hard to believe that the roots of our modern education was in addressing the problem of soldiers thinking for themselves on the battlefield, but this seems that is the case.
