One of the reasons people get an education is to be taught how to think. These days, students aren’t allowed to think because it interfers with their programming and indoctrination.

This was in "Dr. Katz", the Comedy Central cartoon series where Dr. Katz had therapy sessions with real-life popular standup comedians (i.e. cartoon versions of them voiced by themselves. )

I believe it was in a casual conversation, though, that Dr. Katz remarked,

"You know how they say you can lead a horse to water but you can't make him drink?"

"Yeah."

"Well, now they can make him drink."

... that slayed me. I'll never forget that one. ... Hah! The joke is mentioned in this interview with Jonathan Katz. He says he had to quit doing the joke because no one liked it. I don't recall the tagline, "Those Japanese", though. Maybe I edited that out mentally.
