Everything You Ever Need To Know About Life...

 ... you can learn from:

Lady Bracknell: I have always been of the opinion that a man who desires to get married should know either everything or nothing. Which do you know?
Jack: I know nothing, Lady Bracknell.
Lady Bracknell: I am pleased to hear it. I do not approve of anything that tampers with natural ignorance. Ignorance is like a very delicate exotic fruit. Touch it and the bloom is gone. The whole theory of modern education is radically unsound. Fortunately, in England at any rate, education produces no effect whatsoever. If it did, it would prove a serious danger to the upper classes, and probably lead to acts of violence in Grosvenor's Square.
Happy 88 to the Dame Judi Dench!

This is one of your best.

I look forward to your "Everything You Ever Need To Know About Life" posts.

Lady Bracknell is correct and appro pro for today's sensibilities.

The top 10% does not want the masses to be educated, form unions, vote, have a say in their reproductive rights, marriage for all, disallow monopolies... They want to keep folks down, fighting amongst themselves while they rob them blind.

If the people do rise up and are successful then they will mess up their game and there will be violence in Grosvenor's Square.
