Look how many posts there are on this.

People just trying to feel like they are important and different.
How sad.

Watch Charlotte Iserbyt's interviews and read the book I just posted above. I think compulsory education has a governmental purpose, so it only makes sense individual programs would.

I've noted that we tend to ignore people like that guy. Reason being is that, if they were to actually read the thread, they'd find that many of us would have really preferred to have been left alone and unnoticed than to have been targetted. Guinea pigs aren't important. Nobody cares about guinea pigs except for the mad scientists and that's only until the experiment is done.

I watched an Iserbyt interview a few months ago and it was very interesting. If you look at the docs from the last few pages that we uncovered, you can see that a good deal was made about making sure our "characters" and "attitudes" were accordingly adjusted and developed (manipulated really) even to the extent where an attitude adjusting computer was suggested that would utilize Socratic method. So I do believe Iserbyt does strike upon several truths. I just wholeheartedly disagree about who was behind it. From those same documents, you can see that, although we were chiefly the products of psychologists, the department of defense definitely had a distinct interest in us.

As far as careers, I was supposed to be an engineer. I ended up an accountant/financial analyst as did my sister (though she is an exec now). Others that I know from the programs are software engineers, a city planner, executives for tech companies, a pharmacist, an educator, and so on. Not any particular career really that I can see amongst us all but I would say either we ended up in some sort of managerial position (whether it be managing actual people or development) or in the logic happy tech industry.
