Yes, Someone Actually Said This

Do you still have trouble believing that public education is a snare and a delusion, and has been from the beginning? Are you still cool with having your children educated by these people?

Here is what was actually said 41 years ago by Professor Chester M. Pierce, M.D., Professor of Education and Psychiatry, Harvard. He made this statement at a Childhood International Education Seminar in Denver (source, http://www.aim.org/wls/author/chester-m-pierce/ ).

Every child in America entering school at the age of five is mentally ill because he comes to school with certain allegiances to our Founding Fathers, toward our elected officials, toward his parents, toward a belief in a supernatural being, and toward the sovereignty of this nation as a separate entity. It’s up to you as teachers to make all these sick children well–by creating the international child of the future.

“The international child of the future”–what in the devil’s umbrella stand is that? And “belief in a supernatural being”, to wit, God, is to be “mentally ill”?

Speaking only for myself, I hadn’t yet learned about the Founding Fathers when I was five, except to hear about George Washington and the cherry tree, nor had my mother and father troubled to imbue me with any feeling toward “our elected officials,” although I probably could recognize President Eisenhower when I saw him on TV. So what was this fat-head of a Chester Pierce gabbling about?

Well, he did want to get rid of “the sovereignty of this nation as a separate entity,” didn’t he?

OK–all of you who still believe in public schooling for your children: tell me which of Professor Pierce’s comments are now out of date. Tell me which of his words has been discarded by the public education establishment.

And I’ll tell you something. If Professor Pierce were to address a National Education Assn. convention today, and give the same speech he gave in 1973, using the same words, he would receive a standing ovation.

And by the way, folks: if the education experts think your children come to them “mentally ill,” what do you suppose they think of you as parents?

    Well, they think we are a nuisance, to be side-stepped in every way possible, and our children are nuisances also, but that there is still a possibility of molding them. My children are in their 50’s now, but when they were in school, we had to fight the schools at every turn, at one point, even threatening them if they did not back off. Our sons got through somehow, mostly educated at home, and self taught, gaining almost nothing of value from the school, finally leaving early and being done with the asinine attitudes of the so called educators.

    Never heard of him before, so I looked him up. I was curious how he may have been indoctrinated. My guess is that it was from psychiatry itself. This page, with his quote, is quiet telling about psychiatry http://www.psychquotes.com/ Also, propaganda master Edward Bernays learned everything he knew from his uncle Sigmund Freud. Another reason to stay away from the shrinks.

    Reblogged this on Ezekiel Countdown and commented:
    Great points, ‘mental illness’ is believing there is not a Creator and that (de)volution is anything other than fantasy. Parents, I urge you to seriously pray about home instruction with one caveat do NOT buy into the ‘teach your child at home’ using public school curriculum it’s better to teach the 3 R’s, and science while instructing your children in the Word of God.
