Can the puppet “dissent” from those who pull its strings?
When I was in college in the Sixties (of course), it was hammered into us day after day, every day, “Dissent is the highest civic virtue! Dissent is where it’s at! You’re here for no other reason but to dissent.”
Just don’t you dare dissent from us.
“Free and open inquiry.” That was a buzz word, back then. Today the dissenters-turned-muftis would choke on it.
This is what we have allowed our “education” system to become. And given time, it will destroy us.

This isn’t the first time such a thing has happened. The polarity is reversing, and people are realizing that their former alliances are no longer working as they desired.
Something like 20 states are no moving to school choice. It is a step in the right direction. CRT is outlawed in Arkansas via our new Governor.
