But, it goes deeper than that...

The schools created an obedient class that would sit quietly and do a repetitive task over and over again with some degree of proficiency... but, it starts much earlier and is much more pervasive.

Little girls are made of sugar and spice and all things nice, little boys are made of puppy dog tails... Every girl dreams of the "White Wedding" (Chrys Ingraham, as this review notes talks about the ""wedding-industrial complex," which relentlessly markets nuptials (especially white weddings) and relies on the pervasive media images of marriage ceremonies to keep itself "recession-proof."")which is part marketing and part social control...

Ultimately, there has developed a set of cultural rules and the question is who made the rules and for whose benefit did they make them?
