Education is the process by which society deliberately transmits its accumulated knowledge, skills and values from one generation to another. By any reasonable evaluation, our system of education is moving backwards. Based on his experiences as a military officer, research chemist, and teacher, author John V. Patrick suggested that students bred by our society are a bunch of defiant, anti-establishment neurotics who are so disruptive that our teachers cannot teach them, and because of their generational effect, they are driving our society to chaos. He points more directly at the failure of teachers for not exerting a greater influence, through our school system, on our societal drift towards dogmatic endeavors. His proposed solutions through self-actualization are logically detailed and convincingly practical. Especially convincing is his fresh look at the inner-self as a taming mechanism for our drift towards a dogmatic society.
