Our education system limits the people's knowledge and advreligion, education, and government links being sawed apartances the government's ability to manipulate the media and control the people in what we call a democracy, run by white, Christian men.

The root of the flaws with the United States governing system begins with our education system. The problem, as Paulo Freire, a Brazilian educator and free thinker, points out, is that the masses are not learning but merely retaining facts.

In the United States, lack of information occurs all the time but is overlooked because governmental manipulation of the media does not expose it. The people, who should be controlling the government, are instead controlled by faulty reporting based on government hearsay.

Our education system furthers the people’s limited knowledge and advances the government’s ability to manipulate the media and control the people in what we call a democracy.

Who runs the government? White, Christian men dominate the governing body. Thus, fusing Christian religion with government goes against our founding father’s message of creating a separate church and state to allow for religious freedom.
