there is very little in in our 'educational systems' about enabling or encouraging people to "think for themselves".
> ANYTHING will do - so long as it helps prevent "people thinking for themselves".

etc. etc. etc. etc. etc.

OK, you are interested in people "thinking for themselves." You also liek to talk about systems.

How about "Thought as a system"?

Not "your thought", "my thought", but thought as a system that extends between people?

>From a certain point of view the notion of people "thinking for themselves" is just a silly trope.
That's what I think.
