I read Weapons of Mass Instruction, and I highly recommend it to everyone. My question is now that I am aware that I've been dumbeddown....how do I reverse it and reeducate myself? Does anyone have suggestions (not vague pseudo intellectual ones)

What is you think you don't know?

The author gives a list of what it means to be educated but I dont know how to achieve it "1.knowledge of dialectics 2.the ability to define problems independently, to avoid slavish dependence on official definitions. 3.The ability to scan masses of irrelevant information and to quickly extract from the sludge whatever is useful. 4.The apility to conceptualize. 5.The ability to reorganize information into new patterns which enable a different perspective than the customary. 6. he possession of a mind fluent in moving among different modes of thought: deductive, inductive, heuristic, intuitive, et al. 7.Facility in collaboration with a partner, or in teams. 8.Skill in the discussion of issues, problems or techniques. 9.Skill in rhetoric. Convincing others your course is correct. "
