Our problems never were much to do with education, but rather human nature. That isn't easily educated out. Our underlying behavior resides on hardware that cannot be modified without genetic engineering or selective breeding. The software that modifies the underlying hard-coded behavior is very difficult to manipulate.

That's what I assume freebeard and Bucky were on about; that you can't (successfully) fight human nature, you have to accommodate it.
