A Hint of Hemlock Added to the Elixir of Education

HemlockThumbby RobL
Today I was most intrigued and frankly encouraged by an article/video on abcnews.go.com of all places:

Some thoughts quickly entered my mind and I posted them directly to the article (via DISQUS) as they popped into my head. I thought I’d share my ruminations because they offer my take on Leftism’s infiltration of, and damage to, our educational system and why tearing down the trinity (see my first article) is primary if Leftism is to ever achieve its desired utopian (dystopia in my view) state:

Sad commentary on the current state of ‘liberal’ education. Designed to make everyone feel good, replace the government with the family as the primary provider, and disconnect students from their American and Western heritage.

Our grandparents graduated from high school with a better education than most get from college today and with a better sense of the world than Ivy League graduates who are so thoroughly indoctrinated, their intellectual proclivities are wasted on remiss vacuous and backward leftist endeavors.

Thus the United States is slowly decaying and failing, not because any other culture is superior but because we’ve succumbed to the sweet poison that is Leftism and are slowly intoxicating ourselves to death.

Further musings…

“Some people say that the questions are trivial, but the questions relate to what the children at the time would have been familiar with…”

No, just liberal educators who think school is to make kids feel good about themselves and learn how to be indoctrinated to the grand ‘liberal-progressive’ cause.

I’m disgusted with what liberals have done to our education system. As the children are taught the nation is soon to follow. Based on what I’ve seen these past for years we are almost there, the utopian society were we are all equally miserable together.

This will not end well.

If I could add…

Perhaps one of the best articles ABC has offered in 5 years. Why? Despite the article trying to convince Americans it’s unimportant that we learn reading writing, history, geography, arithmetic, Western heritage, because those things do not matter to us today (who is the idiot kidding?)…but by trying to convince us it’s ok to simply use ‘education’ to indoctrinate children, he reveals how vastly inferior we are to our forbears. Perhaps this article will serve as a smack in the face the true wages of Leftism…fear, ignorance, and poverty. • (846 views)

    A bit of research on John Dewy is all anyone has to do to understand why public education is where it is. He was a hard-core Marxist who believed that education must be 2/3 state propaganda and 1/3 job skills, who admired the (then) nascent Soviet Union, and who was proud as peaches that the USSR adopted a great part of his educational model. To this day, you can’t even get a major in education without having to hear his glorified claptrap served up as Gospel.

    The result: we’re churning out (at best) indoctrinated specialized insects, each good at his future little job, but devoid of any semblance of wisdom. Everything else is up to the family–if you’re lucky to have one, and if the state hasn’t forced them all to work 10 hour days just to catch up with April 15.

      Is that too long to fit on a bumper sticker? A pity.

    A few years back I saw a study of international students.
    It compared test scores on various subjects for students in most first world countries.
    The US led in only one catagory. Self esteem.
    Our kids didn’t know much, but they felt good about their ignorance.
