The noteworthy thing here is that the vast majority of anti-eduction advocates are members of the conservative right (ATG may be the lone exception)

Let me be clear, I'm not anti-education. I don't want anyone to misconstrue what I'm saying.

The point I was trying to make was education and a degree doesn't make someone "smart"... And there are many different ways a person can be smart.

If my nieces and nephew (and my two kids, when they grow up) asked me if they should go to college, my response would be "ABSOLUTELY!" Having an education can take you a lot further in life. There's no doubt about that. BUT, just because someone has an education and a degree, does NOT make them a "better" person, and it doesn't necessarily mean they are any smarter than the person they are talking to.

Everyone has something they're really good at. What defines a person is how they treat those who may be less fortunate (whether they have less money, less education, etc..).
