Looking at what is happening in the US, I think it’s fair to say that their education system is completely and utterly broken.
Forget about universities or colleges being about preparing you for a corporate career. The first order of business should be to have the fundamental ability and urge to teach kids and young adults about critical thinking, civic behavior and the likes.
To enable them to actually like in a democracy and not being taken on crazy rides by whatever authoritarian person offers to do so.
Failure to ensure that people can think the themselves and not be drawn to conspiracies and flat out lies will ensure failure in everything else – none mentioned, none forgotten.
Fixing education and the equal access to quality education is the biggest problem and – by association – the biggest opportunity for entrepreneurial spirits who thoroughly understand what’s truly at stake if this doesn’t get fixed.
We can only move too slow on this.
