Do you think we our programming are children right from the day they are born?
Right from the day they are born children are being told. From their name to what their religion needs to be, our kids are constantly being directed by us. As the years pass on this continues with the kind of education they need, who they should marry, what clothes they should wear, which god they should worship etc.
So what does that do to fostering creativity and innovation when as a society we are programmed to follow what we are told?
