A mother in the Bryant School District in Arkansas — a district using the controversial Common Core curriculum — was surprised to learn her sixth-grade daughter was given a team assignment to revise the Bill of Rights, pruning two amendments from the Constitution while adding two others, …
The assignment made the assumption that the United States government has determined that the Bill of Rights “is outdated and may not remain in its current form any longer.”
Teachers (and parents), Common Core is not about education. It is only packaged as education to make it easier to sell it to you. It is actually about indoctrination. They are trying to make drones of our children, and drones must not know how to think for themselves. That is what this lesson is about: training children to accept the government as their life-long parent so they will leave the government to think for them.
Since when does the government decide that the Constitution is out dated? When did the creation become master to those who created it? When did the people become the servants of their creation? And when did “experts” suddenly become the way we govern as opposed to the rule of law and elected representatives? It started with Woodrow Wilson and John Dewey in the first two decades of the 20th Century, that’s when. And if you teachers do not know that, and you are not teaching that to our children, then you have become part of the problem because you are not teaching the principles of liberty:
“Children should be educated and instructed in the principles of freedom.”
“A nation of well informed men who have been taught to know and prize the rights which God has given them cannot be enslaved. It is in the region of ignorance that tyranny begins.”
“If a Nation expects to be ignorant and free in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be…. If we are to guard against ignorance and remain free, it is the responsibility of every American to be informed.”
“Virtue is harder to be got than a knowledge of the world; and, if lost in a young man, is seldom recovered.”
“A popular government without popular information or the means of acquiring it is but a prologue to a farce or a tragedy, or perhaps both. Knowledge will forever govern ignorance: And a people who mean to be their own Governors, must arm themselves with the power which knowledge gives.”
“Let us by wise and constitutional measures promote intelligence among the people as the best means of preserving our liberties.”
“When we are planning for posterity, we ought to remember that virtue is not hereditary.”
“Freedom can exist only in the society of knowledge. Without learning, men are incapable of knowing their rights.”
–Dr. Benjamin Rush
Either fight the system by teaching the principles upon which individual rights and liberty are preserved, or get out of the system. Anything else is supporting the system, and if you are supporting the indoctrination of our children, you are an enemy of God!
“Resistance to tyrants is obedience to God.”
