I feel more secure already!

I’m a fantasy writer. It’s my job to make up weird stuff. I wouldn’t dream of standing in front of a full classroom and saying the stuff I make up is real.

But no such scruples inhibit our public school teachers’ unions. For instance:

The Fantasy of Public Education

So the teacher has the kids write down, “I am willing to give up some of my constitutional rights in order to be safer or more secure.”

LOL. As if a tyrannical government has ever made anybody more secure! Do you think the people in Venezuela feel more secure than we do? Would you rather live in China? Lots of security there! Just don’t you dare step out of line.

Once upon a time, a “teacher” who engaged in such an exercise would be fired as quick as boiled asparagus. The community wouldn’t stand for such lessons.

But we have let them take away the community’s authority over the schools. Now Far Left Crazy owns the schools.

  1. “Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.” -Benjamin Franklin

  2. We are slumping toward the pit, following Europe. I thought we were intending to get away from the old failures, but no.

    1. Europeans will sacrifice just about anything for a little safety and security–and then they’ll wind up not getting any.
