Exposing the Cause of the Teenage Opioid Crisis
WASHINGTON, DC – The current drug problem in America is a strong statement of the age in which we live, according to Joe David, author of The Fire Within, where ignorance and sensations are esteemed, not knowledge and reason. For this, David blames educators.
By denying the supremacy of reason with anti-conceptual and anti-intellectual nonsense, teachers are creating disordered minds among students, minds that can’t integrate information conceptually. This can be verified easily, the author elaborated, by examining the volumes of information (devoid of rational content and logical cohesion) that students must swallow regularly to survive in school.
"Being 'educated,' "The Fire Within author claims, "is accepting propaganda and half-truths as historical facts in lieu of objectively measured reality linked meaningfully and honestly to a larger historical truth and overview." Failure for students to do this has resulted in the creation of the modern teenager--the babbling idiot--who can't process rationally the "knowledge" he collected and who deals with his ignorance (and his mental confusion) by wiping out reality with drugs.
David believes to end this critical crisis the schools must hire teachers with subject knowledge and a commitment to teaching sound thinking skills. "A healthy mind," David said in conclusion, "dedicated to the joys of learning in a truly intellectual sense is not a mind that needs to obliterate reality with drugs."
