I do not know how to title this post any other way. IN all honesty, and going strictly by definition, this is insanity. Sadly, however, it is what passes for ‘enlightened commentary’ on the Sunday ‘news’ programs. The truth is, these programs are not news; they are propaganda. In this case, I am reacting to a story I saw on CNN by Fareed Zakaria about something he called ‘information inequality.’ Here is a written version of the television telecast (I couldn’t find a video link):
I have no intention of analyzing Fareed’s argument. I listened long enough to realize he was trying to defend common core as a reaction to some supposed failure in education at the local level. This is insanity – period! The ignorance in America is by design, and anyone left with the necessary skills to do simple, high-school level research (at least, high-school level when I was still in school in 1984) – anyone with such basic skills can easily prove that the ignorance in this nation has been intentionally engineered. It can be proven because it can be shown that the people doing the engineering have openly bragged about doing it. If you doubt me, then just search this blog for the name John Dewey and start reading. But remember, he is just one of the many who have bragged about creating drones of our children.
However, just in case you still doubt me, I would like you to read this story and then answer a question: how and why can you expect anything but utter ignorance to result from a school system that asks its students to debate whether or not WW II actually happened, or if it is just some massive invention to influence public emotion and gain political power/wealth?
I hope you read that story, because it is asking our children to write papers about whether or not the sky is blue and water is wet. How can we possibly expect to keep up with a rational world when it is readily apparent that the people running our school system are insane?
Yes, I have nothing but contempt for those who deny the Holocaust. It is too well documented to deny. The proof still lives among us today. Those who deny reality are evil.
Yes, I have nothing but contempt for the people who are running our education system. They have openly declared that they see it as the primary vehicle by which to ‘engineer’ their utopian society by creating ‘model citizens.’ Those who seek to control others are evil — especially when they do it to children
Yes, I have contempt for the people who pretend to educate this nation through the ‘news.’ They are insane, because only someone who is insane could sit – day after day – and deliver their lies and push such absurdities as ‘information inequality.’
Finally, I have utter contempt for every individual who sees what is happening yet remains silent. They are just as insane (or evil) as the others. Only, to their crimes, we must also add cowardice.
