Original Idea : Education kills creativity?

We lack original ideas. Most of us do not try to create something new. We tend to copy other’s ideas, make few changes and sell it. The copy culture is infectious; it is in our fashion, in language, music, movies, food, religion you name it. I think it is deep rooted within our education system. It never promoted or entertained original valuable ideas. They taught us to memorise everything and throw up them on answer papers and students who scored more were considered intelligent and creativity or beautiful thoughts had no room in our education system. They injected the students with other’s ideas and concepts and told us not to question them. This has become a disaster.
