The culture of knowledge and training has been rendered obsolete by the Internet, which puts the answers to everything just a click away. Even if many of those answers, without the proper context, are pure garbage.
At the same time, people have been consciously idiotized through education, television, media, etc. for decades.
The public accepts whatever is sold to them if it is done in the right way.
In addition, the application of knowledge to obtain a technical result is rapidly being replaced by machines.
Human beings are left with only the stronghold of creativity, of invention. Because everything else is running out.
