Education and the dismantling of the mind

When the solution is worse than the problem

Are there any States in the Union that allow public schools to opt out of providing sex education to children?

Of course, a counter-argument would be made that, although there was once a time when our country abounded in responsible two-parent families, that’s not the case anymore. Therefore, education about sex is lacking. Therefore, schools have to step into the breach and supply what is missing.

Otherwise, children won’t know about STDs, pregnancy, contraception, etc.

Over the last 40 years or so, school systems, under the aegis of government, have expanded their role. Using “duty” as the prow, these institutions have generated enormous programs to teach children what to think about everything from aluminum cans to bestiality.

Because it’s “right” and “important” and there is a “duty.”

Translation: outside groups with agendas worm their way into schools.

If I were obsessed with four-legged critters on the moon, and I had enough money and political clout and media/think-tank/foundation support, I could introduce Lunar Critterology as a vital subject into every public school in America.

If I were Bill Gates, I could push the need for computers in schools, despite the fact there is no credible evidence that computers improve literacy.

I went to school in the 1940s and 50s. At that time, the focus was simple. You learned to read, to write, and to do math. The textbooks were often old and worn. There were no visual aids. The lesson plans in every class were step-by-step. Learn a new thing, drill it to death, take a little quiz, learn the next new item, drill it, take a quiz.

It worked. It may have lacked glitz, but it worked because the vast majority of people can’t learn to read, write, or do math any other way.

You can’t gloss over these subjects with a broad brush and a lot of personality or caring. It’s all about digging in the dirt, one scoop at a time.

Some people would call it robotic education. I don’t think it is. It’s just doing what’s necessary—unless reading, writing, and math are deemed unimportant. In which case, you have a whole new idea about what education is.

If you spend time in the classroom on enterprises that are supposed to save the world or revolutionize society or build tolerance or cater to kids who don’t want to learn, then you take away hours from the core idea and practice of what learning is.

When I went to school, there could have been a better curriculum for history and science, but all in all, the teachers did a good job.

Now, we’re in a different world.

It’s assumed that most children are operating at a deficit, and they need to be brought up to speed on morals, on compassion, on sex, on greenness, on hope, on race and religion, on global concerns. At age five, eight, 12, 14.

And a great deal of this “new education” is about cashing in, for book publishers, for educrats, for federal overseers, for busybodies of all stripes who belong to agenda-driven groups that want their say and their moment in the sun.

I say this is all hogwash, and I believe anyone who consults national test scores and current levels of literacy would be compelled to agree.

Education is on the way out.

A few astute writers assert that, perhaps 80 years ago, the whole thrust of early education in America was altered intentionally, to produce worker-ants for a highly controlled society of the future. With all due respect, I think it’s worse than that. Because now we’re turning out kids who are essentially confused, badly schooled, drifting on the wind, lost in a mind-territory of fantasized entitlement. They aren’t androids ready to work on some non-existent assembly line. They’re just lost. They’re riddled with self-esteem that doesn’t work. They’re consumers looking for magic credit so they can buy their way into happiness. They’re loaded with sugar and other chemicals that scramble their synapses. They’re not only unsympathetic toward work, they have no passion of their own.

Logic? Imagination? Never heard of it.

When I went to school, there was virtually no classroom disruption of any kind. And my schools were attended by an economic, social, racial, and religious cross-section of students. We weren’t striving for diversity. We had it. The relatively few kids who were out of control and resisted any kind of discipline were herded into classes together, and teachers dealt with them.

The public schools of today lack the courage to say, “Look, if you’re here to learn, we want you. Otherwise, you’re out. Goodbye.”

If you need metal detectors at the school entrances, you went over the edge a long time ago. No one deserves to be subjected to that kind of environment.

The bullying problem? It’s an industry now. People with degrees write papers and books about it, and task forces gear up to study it and make recommendations. It’s a structure of carbuncles on the body-politic of education.

Once upon a time, no bully was allowed to attend school. If he pressed his attitude and his actions, he was expelled. Period. It wasn’t a question of why he bullied. He was gone. Learning couldn’t take place as long as he was on the scene.

And “gangs in schools?” I’m sorry, but there are no gangs in schools. There are schools in gangs—that’s what you have when groups of kids with violent tendencies inhabit classrooms and corridors. If you can’t expel them en masse, give up. Shut down the place.

If you want to make schools into six-hour-a-day baby-sitting machines, call it that. Try to obtain public funding for it. Hire guards and nurses and cops to staff it. Put it behind barbed-wire fences and install those metal detectors.

Or if schools are really lunch cafeterias, run them that way. Free public lunches. Have kids show up at noon, eat, and leave.

If you think kids of various religions should be allowed to commandeer a room to hold prayer groups, call it Government-Funded God. Rent a hall somewhere and schedule everybody from Christians and Jews to Muslims and Buddhists and Hindus and Zoroastrians.

“Well, we have these kids who are great football players, and they score very badly on all the tests, but we need them on the team.”

No you don’t. Start your own community team. Make up a name. Raise money for uniforms and coaches. Form a league. If these kids want to stay in school—which is a completely different matter—they’ll have to learn how to attain grades for real.

And this long-standing rule about passing kids on to the next grade, no matter how poorly they perform? Graduating them from high school even if they can’t read at fourth-grade level? Because they need to feel good about themselves? Because that’ll somehow help them wend their way through life later on?

Invent a new type of school for them and put it somewhere else. Bring in tutors. If that fails after an honest attempt, teach trades. Some of these kids will end up making more money in a trade than Harvard business-school grads.

All of the above, by the way, makes a good case for home schooling. Unless the parents themselves were shot out the top end of their schools, long ago, ill-prepared to handle reading, writing, and arithmetic.

No, the problem isn’t cookie-cutter education. It’s no education.

Now, of course, hovering over this revolution in education is the wider government becoming mommy and daddy to everyone. “Because they care.” Because they need to do this “caring” in order to obtain budget money for their departments. Because otherwise they would be useless.

And hovering over THAT is the program to convert everyone on the planet to a status much like an eternal patient with an eternal doctor.

This program is advancing based on the notion that “patient status” equals “more controllable.”

“Yes, we have to control you for your own good, because we care.”

No, they want control because they want control.

In my day, the subject that was conspicuously missing from the classroom was Logic. Once upon a time, it had been taught to children when their reading skills had progressed far enough. It was usually presented as a series of fallacies that infected the process of reasoning.

A few years ago, I decided to write a logic course to fill this gap. My strategy was to provide basic background lessons and then launch into a series of text passages seeded with fallacies and flaws. Students with the help of their teachers would find them and understand how they operated to derail lucid thinking.

I offered this 18-lesson course to home schoolers, and adults who wanted to use it for self-study.

Now it’s part of my new collection, The Matrix Revealed.

Twenty-four hundred years ago, in Athens, logic was, for the first time, explained in detail by Aristotle. It marked the beginning of a new era for humankind. Logic allowed a person to peruse a formal argument, differentiate between premises and deductions, and judge the validity of the reasoning process.

When students are taught this subject well, they turn into detectives. They realize that articles and books are more than mere lakes of information. They can trace the progress of a line of thought, and see that authors are offering evidence that leads to a conclusion.

It’s an awakening. I’ve seen it resolve what was foolishly diagnosed as ADHD. The student becomes grounded. He accrues real confidence. He can decide whether an argument is valid or invalid. He can spot flaws and describe them.

Armed with the tool of logic, he becomes independent.

This may explain why logic was dropped out of the secondary school curriculum.

God forbid the educational system should be turning out thousands of students who can really think for themselves, and think powerfully and consistently.

Note: I’m not covering the subject of college education in this piece, but I have an interesting anecdote for you. William E. Kennick taught philosophy at Amherst from 1956 to 1993. Amherst has consistently been rated as one of the top colleges in America. During his tenure, Kennick grew disturbed by the quality of papers his students were turning in. So he wrote and distributed a four-and-a-half page, single-spaced document titled, Some Rules for Writing Presentable English. The cream of the cream of American college students needed that on-the-fly tutorial to come up to basic speed. What other students at other colleges were/are producing in the way of written English is too horrible to contemplate.

So now we come to the central thesis. The modern vision of education, aside from the hard sciences, is all about unhinging or un-gluing the mind from its moorings, from its focus, from its ability to track complex thought.

Instead, we have education as: socialization; community; relativity.

This last factor is key. No particular piece of information is any more “valid” than any other piece, no more important, no more deserving of respect. Information is a soup into which one dips a spoon—coming up with whatever is there.

Over the range of society, you get young people wandering around with barely a clue. They’re dissatisfied, they’re upset, they’re resentful, they’re mystified, they’re rebellious.

To a degree, that describes every generation. But when the legs are missing, when the ability to concentrate and focus is absent, when the reasoning capacity is vastly underdeveloped, you get a stupendous crash.

It’s worse than cookie-cutter graduates heading for an assembly line. It’s the kind of trouble that spreads out in ripples, requiring assistance from the State. And that is the revelation.

That’s the society that’s being created.

For the elites who want to run things, globally, it’s not enough to gather up the most dependent people in a net and bring them over to the collectivist side with promises. No, what’s needed is a machine that PRODUCES huge numbers of newly minted dependents all the time.

Welcome to the educational wing of globalism.

Scour every textbook you can find at any level in the school system of your country. See if you can find the conjunction of the word “powerful” with the word “individual” where the implication isn’t pejorative. Where the thrust is positive. I know where my money is in that bet.

When political and economic collectivism is the goal of a society, certain things have to be done with the school system. Individualism has to be discouraged and sidelined. Status based on pure merit, achievement, and performance has to be minimized. And the core courses must lose their discipline.

Instead, group socialization, random expression of students’ opinions (based on nothing in particular), and bogus self-esteem must take center stage.

As a former teacher, I can tell you it’s rather easy to make this momentous shift. The starting point, from which the whole campaign unfolds, involves grouping together students in classes who are operating at significantly different levels of skill and ability.

For example, try teaching geometry to 20 kids who scored across a wide spectrum in their previous final exams in elementary algebra. Just try. Follow your day-to-day lesson plans and see what happens. It’s like crossing a bridge with drivers who never learned the difference between the brake and gas pedal. Chaos.

Jammed up in that baffling disorder, teachers will tend to gravitate to social concerns. They’ll encourage, wheedle, praise, empathize. They’ll try to draw out “the feelings” of students. What was once a very straightforward proposition will vaporize.

The pernicious effects of elementary-school teachers having failed to impart the basics of reading, writing, and arithmetic will explode in a tsunami by the first year of high school.

And what happened in the first place, in grades 1-5? The model of repetition, in which each new concept in a subject is drilled over and over, and tested, before moving on to the next concept, was abandoned.

When I was a child, in the 1940s, the model of repetition was intact. It was brick and mortar.

But somewhere along the line, the “person-centered psychology” of education was invented. Every child automatically became “special.” On the surface, this sounded good. It sounded like enlightenment.

But it was really a piece of psy-war. It glossed over the fact that, if each child is innately special, he/she doesn’t have to be informed of it over and over. He only has to be taught well and learn well. More than enough encouragement begins to confuse a child and make him impatient. He wants to get on with things. He wants to prove he can excel. He wants new knowledge.

The history of mainstream psychology can be boiled down to two movements. First, there were the experiments of Pavlov. Conditioned reflex. The human as machine. Then there was the therapeutic age. Endless muddled rumination on problems and difficulties, and the need for “re-enforcement.” Everyone is special. The child as beloved pet.

The arc went from robot to dependent. They were both gross failures.

When pet/dependent became the order of the day, psychiatrists proliferated their invention of mental disorders. ADD. ADHD. Oppositional Defiance Disorder. Clinical depression. Bipolar. And powerful toxic drugs came down the line, to scramble brains.

This is the real war on drugs, except the war is being fought against children by “mental-health professionals.”

Suddenly, childhood diseases which had been accepted for generations, which came and went and gave children stronger immune systems in the process, were claimed to be a horrific threat, and 20 or 30 vaccines had to be taken to prevent these illnesses.

Thus the shaping of a new and false and debilitating image of the child torpedoed children and their education.

Creating The Disabled is the cornerstone of Collectivism.

I need you. You need me. Everybody needs everybody. Whatever germs of truth lie in this ideal are crushed, because the “need” formula is artificially built. It’s a piece of debased architecture, whose real purpose is the inculcation of a reason to abandon self and individual power.

Once, the Carnegie and Rockefeller line of force viewed education as the assembly line for turning out objects that would produce other objects in mindless fashion. But that has changed. Now schools are built to become need-factories, breeding surreal socialized graduates who contemplate how political power has wronged them.

The new sign of intelligence is this: how many ways can you imagine you’ve been cheated?

And here is the kicker. Surprisingly little of this contemplation reveals the actual methods of manipulation.

But then, why would it? If children are engineered long enough, they’ll look everywhere for answers except at their hidden masters, the ones whose objective was to make them into children forever.

    Oh, Jon, this was excellent, thanks! Right on!

  2. John says:

    There are very few things taught in school today. It’s all about brainwashing and indoctrination.

    The world is ending because humans and cows are expelling too much carbon dioxide. We must destroy the US economy in order to save the world from doom.

    Trump and conservatives are racists, western civilization is evil, we love open borders and all of us just need to learn to become more “tolerant.”

    The US is an imperialist country, racism runs rampant in America, police are hunting down black people, muslims are here to assimilate and have forgotten all about shara law.

    The USA of the past and its history must be erased and forgotten. The US Constitution is out of date, everything the white male christian represented in the past was racist and evil and continues to be to this very day.

    Learn to hate yourself if you are a white christian male, take anti-depressant drugs and watch Dr. Oz and American Idol. Consume yourself with things which don’t matter.

    Stare at cell phone screens all day long and use twitter, facebook, instagram, google and amazon, they are your friends.

    Firmly believe the education system is fair and fully representative of all viewpoints.

    Socialism is good, capitalism is bad.

    Conformity and collectivism are wonderful, individualism is troublesome.

    The mainstream media reports the news in a duly diligent and responsible manner based on facts and without bias.

    The world will be perfect when Barack Obama’s view of the world becomes the mindset of every American.

    Destroy your soul, empty your mind of logic, reason and common sense, and root on AI as it destroys all biological life.

    The surveillance police state is here to keep you safe. Having a government Big Brother is fun. Technocrats know best.

    And if you disagree with any of the above, you are just an entitled rich white hillbilly racist and you just have to find a way to shut up or become obsolete.

    Globalism, utopian liberalism is just peachy keen and eternal bliss…Learn to exist and reject living.

  3. truth1 says:

    An amazing piece of work. I have long understood this but never all put together in such a bleak realistic picture. I see schools now, as filters and propaganda ministers. Put another way, they select what you can hear or not, and be denied any info or outlook that might displease those in power. and the greatest part of that paradox is that few are aware of how everyone is being programmed, almost exactly like the CIA does in secret, minus the hideous torture.

    It is an indication that individuals have allowed themselves to regress and de-evolve and decay and degenerate and become useless. and all because we let others do our jobs for us, like raising and training kids. Soon, our kids will be taken from us if we try and interfere with “state programming and indoctrination. Its one big huge cult now, instead of a species allowed to roam the savannas of ideas freely. No more open fields and jungles for us. We all live in zoos now or on farms to be milked and fed in our little stalls.

    Wow! I am so impressed with cows, I mean, human beings or perhaps I was right with cows to be milked . . . and bled to death.

  4. Erika says:

    “I am convinced that the battle for humankind’s future must be waged and won in the public school classroom by teachers that correctly perceive their role as proselytizers of a new faith: a religion of humanity that recognizes and respects the spark of what theologians call divinity in every human being…. The classroom must and will become an arena of conflict between the old and new — the rotting corpse of Christianity, together with all its adjacent evils and misery, and the new faith of humanism, resplendent with the promise of a world in which the never-realized Christian ideal of ‘love thy neighbor’ will finally be achieved.” — excerpt from an article by John Dunphy titled “A Religion for a New Age,” appearing in the January/February 1983 issue of The Humanist magazine

    • And the cycle continues…religion is violence.

      • truth1 says:

        Fear not, Mike. Christianity is outnumbered and surrounded, but unless their church leaders tell them that, they will not believe it. but lets be clear, a war of words or ideas (free speech) is not a war as in killing and dying. but ideas can be deadly . . . and they can be healing and saving, too. A double edge sword as all words can be.

      • Erika says: is how the dialectic works. Herd people by reaction into a controlled secular wing or a controlled religious wing and get them to fight each other, works every time.
        What is never offered is real choice, while giving the illusion of choice. Kinda like the US “democratic” elections.
        It is the only way for the controllers to ruin the farm where some animals are more equal than others.

  5. From Quebec says:

    Just like you Jon, ! went to school in the 1940s and 50s. , I guess we were the lucky ones.

    This is why we could appreciate the television series of the Los Angeles homicide detective Lieutenant Columbo, because he uses his humble ways and ingenuous demeanor to winkle out even the most well-concealed of crimes. We were thought logic in school those days.

    You wrote a great article, Jon. . But, there is another part of the problem that you did not mentioned, it is the fact that children are not even born yet, but they already have a reserve place in a daycare facility where parents drop their children off, usually for a full day, with other kids of various ages and,backgrounds

    Those parents are just as guilty as the teachers in the government schools . If you are not willing to take care of your kids, do not have children.

    Coming back to your article, it is clear that the corrupted government wants weak and uninformed children, so they can easily be fooled and willing to be part of the New World Order. They do not care one bit about those children, most of them are child molesters anyway, Another major problem in our society today.

    • truth1 says:

      Good comment Queb. Parents are not accepting enough responsibility.

    • NaturalWoman says:

      From Quebec, you are right.

      The problems accelerated here in the US when the federal government created the Dept of Education for top-down rule. It used to be that the schools were controlled by the local school boards, who were residents of the community and likely had children in the schools. The boards determined the curriculum, with discussion with the teachers, etc. I happened to have a discussion about this from a top person in my state’s education department who agreed with me that the more state and especially federal government got involved, the worse things got.

      As Jon has pointed out many times, we are individuals first and foremost, and carrying that farther, each school district has its own unique needs that can be addressed locally, not from DC. Today school boards are pretty weak, subject to the pronouncements from the Fed government.

      The teachers are ignorant of our past, have no memory of when schools actually taught students, and they themselves were poorly taught–most know nothing about WWII, for instance– and you know what they say about people being doomed to repeat the mistakes if they haven’t learned from the past.

      My state was in the top-rated handful for decades until the feds took over, now it is mediocre.

      Now I’m in another state where the teachers, who are paid well considering their considerable benefits, yet they want more, more, more for themselves. They feel threatened by home-schoolers, so they’ve done their best to denigrate them and pass legislation to eliminate or discourage them, as well as taking away school choice and private schools. These kids tend to be the most capable students, and their departure brings the testing averages down for those remaining in public schools, thus making them look bad.

      In reality, the teachers selfishly fear their jobs will be eliminated if everyone could choose better schooling for their children. And their jobs will be harder with lesser students. (Please know that I’m not denigrating the students with that statement, just telling you the teachers’ viewpoint.) It’s all about them, the teachers, though they pretend otherwise.

      Let me hasten to add that I am sure that there are still some dedicated teachers, but the system does not allow them to succeed as they could. They are treated like robots. They must obey the feds without deviating at all from the curriculum, etc.

      • Aron says:

        Well said. If all parents could send their kids to the school of their choice (including home-schooling) without interference from governments that dictate ciriculuum from on high, education would improve naturally. An education voucher system could possibly help in this regard.

        As each school’s success would be dependent upon providing the highest quality education as possible, high caliber teachers would be in great demand. You’d probably start seeing people from a wide range of the private sector (business people, scientists, musicians, novelists, farmers, etc.) with teaching abilities start entering the profession because of the real-world experience they’d bring to the table. Eliminating teacher unions in the process would also provide the means for under-performing teachers to wither away and encourage competent individuals to rise in the ranks.

      Several years ago, my vehicle broke down. While it was in the shop I rode the city bus. I noticed straightaway young mothers with their child in tow, boarding the bus, getting the child settled, and then pulling out their cellphone ignoring the kid for the rest of the journey.

      Almost without exception the kid began to act up – whining, hollering, crying, etc until the mother would lose patience, reach over and swat the kid….usually not even making eye contact.

      One of these miserable scenarios played out in the seat directly in front of me: a darling little girl about two years old began to clamor repeatedly for her mom’s attention and each time mom would give her a slap. This “interaction” had clearly been repeated many, many times in the past – a split-second before mom reacted, the child would tighten up and scrunch down – she knew EXACTLY when the slap was coming….but I suppose even a slap is better than nothing at all.

      We’re raising a bunch of feral humans. Hell, they’re already here…

      When I was pregnant with my first child, almost 19 years ago, I fully intended to place my child in daycare. It was what all good mothers did, as I had been taught by society, trendy women’s magazines, and government schools. I remember going to a couple of those daycare centers in Santa Monica, where I was working at the time, Sure, they were excellent as far as daycare centers go. They were highly recommended and cost a whole lot. Still, I just couldn’t imagine the baby inside me being placed in a crib all day, wondering where his mother was. That was the beginning of my journey to stay home with my kids. I’m so very thankful that I realized that no amount of toys and loving caregivers could take the place of the mother, the one who’d brought them into the world.

      • truth1 says:

        LA county was full of nefarious Satanic Ritual Abuse being done on the kids in the 80s. And the preschools were making porn with them and prostituting them to networks up and down California. The DA said that kids who had been abused in the 70s could not testify, as the statute of limitation had run out. This was the McMartin trial. I did not know kids were held accountable to the law. To the best of my knowledge, they can not be held accountable until they reach the age of 18 or 21 or whatever that was in Cali in the 70s and 80s.

        My opinion is that men were paid less and inflation jacked so that kids would have to be turned over to “professionals.” that’s another code word for Satanic rapists, if not murderers according to the childrens’ testimony. I suspect that it will not be much longer before public schools start “doing it!” the kids will likely be horrifically programmed and conditioned with MK Ultra Programming. the sickness and madness that has taken over, has no bounds. Welcome to the brave new world.

        My advise to all! Do not have kids anymore. for their sakes!

        Call me Mr. sunshine. I rain on parades for a living.

        There is so much that did not come out about the McMartin trial. 3 people were killed to keep them from testifying. the kids were brutally bullied on the stand by ruthless defence lawyers and neither the DA or the court stopped it. there ain’t a hell hot enough!!!!!!!!!!!

  7. Homeschool mom says:

    Thank you for this note of encouragement to continue homeschooling my children. Moral values and independent thinking are more important than ‘educational standards set by common core’. College has no value to me and I discourage my children from going into debt while being taught socialism. The youth are brainwashed by tv and video games if not in government school. If only we could go back to a simpler time….

  8. ‘Soft Power’ is the new way — attract and co-opt. The shaping of the new individual (sic) by attraction and an appeal from that attraction. The technology; the culture; is all being designed in a way to cause those finalities which to world socialism they will rise — the ultimate in group grope for the last of mind.  As the light goes out and there you are, a bot designed by your own foibles and the false virtues of your new tribe.

    At some point in this exhaustive fight, the retardation of a whole generation of people has occurred, who have found themselves through signaling to others, “Am I okay, is this a good me, what does the tribe think?”

    Political parties entertain this as they find out what these new humans and groups are saying and supply an endless serving of this…”Well fuck we haven’t had a woman in the White House, there’s the solution staring us right in face all along”

    Does leadership mean anything in America? It’s the new Hollywood. All the wonderous variety of new candidates that will flood the political arena in the next election, will be versions of what you speak here about, disassembled minds with the same socialist mindset and a weaponized noun hyphenated to it, a decoration of opposition around a Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren type… god help us when the moment arrives.

    Brain-dead excuses for human beings are nurtured on; false merit; a false sense of self-esteem; a bully mentality when honing in on what they perceive is aggression, or a sinner; the wholesale push of individualism to a criminal edge of a flat earth to be kick off into an abyss.

    We are in for the bureaucratizing of every little thing. We will go extinct of silliness and red tape.

    Thine is the friend of all Mankind:
    Mine speaks in parables to the blind.

    Thine loves the same world that mine hates;
    Thy heaven doors are my hell gates.

    Socrates taught what Meletus
    Loath’d as nation’s bitterest curse,

      for sure, I believe socialism is the primary goal now, of the next election. and if audience will pardon me, I believe this trend reveals what the bible relays in a vague coded way, that the monsters at the top are gathering the world to for force an ultimate decision upon the whole work for every individual to choose one of only two choices. Go along with the sick morbid Satanic agenda or be imprisoned for life with a few having to give up their lives for not going along with it. the bible lets us know its only going to be for 3.5 years and anyone choosing God will be brought back to life, if they are executed and if in camps or other detention centers, they will be freed after 3.5 years. During the 3.5 years internment, the outside world will then experience the worst mass killing that has ever been carried out, ultimately, by the sickos led by an ever bigger sicko in the spirit world.

      But whether what say happens or not, there is no good will or decency behind this socialist utopia that some freak who will claim to be Jesus, will offer us. Once they fully control what we have, they can deny us anything they want. They can cram us into a living space the size of a 10′ by 15; shed, very small dormitory rooms. Common bathrooms no cooking facilities. Cafeteria style. you’ll be fed crap. Your health will degrade fast.

      the greatest failing of the new young is that they are so naive and stupid and have not a clue just who evil and heartless those in power, are. To them, Government has always been wonderful. Big government has always been their friend and ally, so they thought. They will soon experience the other side of Leftist totalitarianism. They imagine they are comrades with those at the top. They will find out then, who is really at the top and has always been at the top for the last 6000 years. what a shock that will be as they take their last gasping breath.

      Al the same, I can not help but marvel at the sadistic brilliance that has been carried out since the 1776 revolution which swept Europe not long after and now the whole world. The engineering of it all is way beyond the comprehension of humans, without some superior malevolent IQ guiding them along this path. What a lesson to learn. they don’t teach that in Universities. And how about that word, University. Universal. United. One, a whole. It was their plan, all along.

      Thank you to all good posters who take the time from time to time, to share good insights. I, for one, appreciate it. Iron sharpens Iron.

      Truth1 out!

    I retired from public school teaching after 35 years. Jon, your description of education today is 100% accurate.

    I was disruptive. They said I had a bad attitude and a ship on my shoulder. I sensed over control but couldn’t put my finger on it. Challenging the teachers was always a bad mistake for me. Finally I found pot in the 5th grade so I could get along, and give in. I disliked school. But love learning. Love learning individualism.

    Something else to consider about education–the emphasis on “diversity” means lowered standards, which mean teachers become less knowledgeable, etc. There is a brave book about this from St. Martin’s, The Diversity Delusion: How Race and Gender Pandering Corrupt the University and Undermine Our Culture by Heather Mac Donald.

  14. JB says:

    My father was transferred to a Catholic school when he was 8, 1924. After grammar school he attended pub-ed until he “graduated” in 1933 at the behest of his father in the principal’s office. In middle school he was taught by his soon-to-be father-in-law, and was a poor student.

    1945 he entered a junior college and managed to carry a B avg in Humanities and Social Studies.Then he entered a university and managed to obtain a B.S. in Social Sciences, with a minor emphasis in English, at age 32. None of his coursework entailed physical sciences, mathematics beyond basic algebra, or Philosophy. What little hard science and math he did have he was a mediocre performer.

    The year before (1947) gaining his bachelor’s, his father-in-law retired from public education because he could not handle the stress of teenagers who were allowed to act out their lack of good parenting caused by the War. His greatest complaint was that kids did not know how to work.

    Fast forward forty years. Reading the reminiscences of my father, and older siblings who attended pub-ed in the 50s and 60s, I discover their writing ability is atrocious. All of them had spelling errors. They had grammar errors. None of them could write a simple, well-constructed essay. And to my knowledge none of them ever went beyond Algebra II, took Physics or Chemistry, or related hard science subjects. Only my oldest brother did so, and that was after his military technical training.

    I attended the same schools growing up, and had a few of the same teachers. I studied English out of the same worn out tomes that were extant when my father was in H.S..

    The upshot to this abbreviated account is that pub-ed has been deficient in the basics since the beginning of the 20th century at least. It has never performed well at turning out intelligent and informed students.

    Take JFK, who was afforded some of the best schools money could buy. What did he learn about Abe Lincoln? What did he learn about the moneyed interest in the 1860s? Not enough, and he lost his head over it.

    Missing the point completely. The parasites that control America today, want to destroy western society. The schools do this job perfectly. as does media. They are creating a mass of sheep that will do everything it is told to do. They are just epsilons described in brave new world. Good enough to operate the machine.

    Your article would make sense if the state was trying to really educate people. This is not the case.

    The invisible man story was good for six thousand years, now there is technology to implement a better form of control.
