WHAT SCHOOLS IN GENERAL ARE NOT TEACHING — WHY?
H.L. Mencken wrote in The American Mercury in April 1924
that the aim of public education is not:
“…to fill the young of the species with knowledge and awaken their intelligence… Nothing could be further from the truth. The aim… is simply to reduce as many individuals as possible to the same safe level, to breed and train a standardized citizenry, to put down dissent and originality. That is its aim in the United States… ”
[quotation 9 on the quotations page of this website]
Worldwide, education has become a coordinated effort to control the minds and bodies of all people. That has always been the goal under dictatorships (Marxism, Socialism, Communism, etc.) The nature of dictatorships is to program the minds of adults and children (from birth to death) — in order to contain and manipulate them.
Schools, in general, are not teaching students
to be able: to read; to love reading; to write (in schools cursive is not in the national standards, and almost no printing is taught); to be able to add, subtract, multiply and divide; to memorize the abc’s, math tables, names/dates . . .; to research outside the limited material that is provided and recommended by school curriculum; to learn from history, including knowledge of of America’s founding; to learn to think independently and to communicate; to debate and defend positions logically; to learn about and discuss different faiths without condemnation of the faiths or condemnation of the people within the faiths, or those talking about the faiths (including Christianity and Judaism).
Schools in general are censoring what students can say about political philosophies (like Nazism, Socialism, Communism, Fascism, Republics, Democracies, Oligarchies, Monarchies) ….
WHY all the controlled censorship and carefully structured fabrication of false “history” that avoids basic U.S. History and avoids the U.S. Constitution and our Bill of Rights? These were written to protect us from a tyrannical government.
