Wow, I love this question, because the answer is very simple: It would be very dangerous for the small group and they would quickly lose control. You can not rule over critical thinking people who actually believe they OWN their own body and their own mind: It just doesn't happen, well...except by force...but in this force is not enough...if you were a small group you would need something far more reaching. Solution: Mind Control, and not in the traditional sense where you drug, or shock, or lobotomize people...no...mass mind control...a construct of making them believe everything you tell them.
School Sucks Project believes public school is this, the grand control over the population. To quote: The American Public School system might have some other agenda than providing actual education? Would I be going off the deep end if I was to suggest the actual agenda has three primary goals: Create Reflexive obedience with fixed responses as apposed to creative and inquisitive thinking. The next, make children conform into easily controllable and predictable groups. And lastly, get children to forsake their individuality for the good of a larger group that they are supposedly part of.
If you think the above is not correct: Why does it explain our society so completely now?
