Free your mind of the seven “horizon-limiting mindsets” learned in school, writes Isaac Morehouse and Dan Sanchez on the Foundation for Economic Education site.
School is a conveyor belt that moves everyone at the same pace as everyone else, they write. This “lures you into assuming, so long as you obey the rules, you’ll get handed the next piece of paper, promotion, or quality of life enhancement. Get off the conveyor belt.”
School also teaches people to ask permission.
“Raise your hand and wait to be called upon. Get in single file lines. Even your basic biological needs cannot be met without permission. You get a hall pass to go to the bathroom. You eat only when scheduled.”
“The supplicant mindset is poison,” write Morehouse and Sanchez.
And that’s just the first two.
