Ten Principles of Education for Slavery

Sunday, March 15, 2009

1. A slave’s education is coercive
2. The slave is not told why he is being forced to be educated
3. A slave’s education keeps the slave dependent on the thoughts of others
4. A slave’s education keeps the slave weak
5. A Slave’s education prepares him to work for others instead of preparing him to work for himself
6. A slave’s education neglects the slave’s unique strengths and contributions, developing only what some other institution or group needs him for
7. A slave’s education is not oriented toward the honor of the slave but the glory of his master
8. A slave’s education is not under natural authority but is under the arbitrary authority of the self-appointed and self-validating
9. A slave’s education does not develop the higher virtues of wisdom and justice (for rather obvious reasons)
10. A slave’s education does not cultivate the qualities of a free person (virtue and honor and all that arises from them)
