    Another great benefit of educating our children to be critical thinkers would be to have a generation of voters who are able to see through the current BS of politicians and demand solutions to problems, not just empty promises that will never be fulfilled.

      I think a little of that is happening, and we see it in the Trump and Sanders supporters. Granted, many of the people who support them are naive about how government really works and about how much power the president really has; and many of them have simplistic views about how easy it would be to fix.

      But there is definitely a growing awareness that government doesn’t work for us. My hope is that one of the next steps is that we realize the people in the other party aren’t the enemy, it’s the party bosses and big money.
