I enjoyed reading this thread and have a new outlook on studying philosophy using this method. I think the school system should start teaching this method of critical thinking in grades as early as elementary school (fifth grade at least ). Especially middle school because it would be very useful as children go into high school and get ready for college.

Why concern yourself with that? The idea is to have the upper hand in all aspects of your life, to 'reign' it. I find it curious that your thoughts defaulted to altruism. So what's your angle? Do you really benefit from ensuring that the people are around you are just as critical in their thinking patterns?

No I could care less about what other people think. My concern is my children and their education. That's my angle.

He might not, but I could really benefit from a more critical approach from those around me in my daily life. Especially in matters of what constitutes 'state' and jurisdiction over criminal activity. That, and the many other things these idiots all fail to recognize.

The government provides a basic education, a more critical learning process could be maintained in the home. That's how I approached it with my own child. Besides, I think it benefits kids to learn how the 'other half' live.

Why should that matter? Plan on falling subject to it?

I've actually thought about home schooling them myself. There's alot of the governments curriculum I don't agree with. For example, when I was in school I learned about tragedies like Wacco Texas, Jonestown etc.., my son is going into High School and my daughter is going to Middle school and they don't know what the Water Gate Scandal is.
