There are some theories that various 'power' segments of society
actively cultivate a particular working model for their own benefit.
Foremost, of course, are Clergy, lawyers, and gov. (Has anyone heard
I've always thought and recently espoused that there should be classes
from the beginning of highschool on philosophy and sociology. I
suppose the problem would be which philosophy and whose spin on things
the schools would encourage.
I just think that too many people don't think of themselves on the
'meta' level. (Thinking about what they think and do and why.) I had
my little crisis at 13.
Not to mention the fact that there would be more atheists... :-)
