The education system trains people to think there is only one correct answer when there are a lot of ways to build a bridge, to create a lamp, to build a language, to cure a disease.
One right answer teaches people to be extremely narrow-minded, and it makes people critical of themselves, of others, and that's bad for the community because it creates a society that believes lies.
Community becomes about 'the best': athletes, performers, actresses, singers, rich, giving them the responsibilities (and power) in society. This is the best game, this is the best artist, xbox is better than ps4, lionel messi is the best sports player, etc. It just creates rivalry, drama, and at the end of the day, the only people who really cared who was better were really the people who shouldn't be in the community to begin with.
