Just what kind of work do today’s college graduates intend to pursue? What are they best suited for?
In a spirit of charity, we must always remember that such stupidity, such slothfulness, such ignorance is very rarely born but must be laboriously and carefully cultivated. From kindergarten to grad school, trillions of dollars are spent on making young people as dumb as brickbats.
To an alarming degree, the effort has succeeded.
Sometimes talking to people about public education is like talking to tree stumps. Our culture is melting down around us, largely due to the malign influence of public schooling, it’s turning into a garbage-heap right before our eyes–and still they send their kids to public school.
But what can we do, but to tell the truth?
You are letting kooks and perverts “educate” your children.
It will not turn out well.
The principal at the Atlanta school who wanted to dump the Pledge of Allegiance, and replace it with some kind of “oath to the global society,” didn’t dream it up all by herself. Like most of our public… “educators,” she’s fully up to speed on assorted globalist projects aimed at creating a utopia with themselves in charge.
Like, for instance, “the Oath Project” (https://www.theoathproject.org/). This document is hard to read because it’s so full of B.S., but you may want to give it a try.
They say they’re trying to create “a unified hub for all of the efforts related to the mission of professionalizing management [of everything!–ed.]… a network of networks… supported by a number of leading organizations in both the academic and professional space.” Like the World Economic Forum, the UN Global Compact, and a host of others–the whole Davos crowd of utopian globalists.
And there is “the MBA Oath,” a “voluntary pledge” “started by a group of Harvard students.” Do you find that reassuring?
Yessireebob! Once they set up a global government, with themselves managing every aspect of human life and the rest of us turned into “global citizens,” it’s all gonna be just hunky-dory. You have their word on it. Now you see what we get when we throw humility out the window.
“Ye shall be as gods,” said Satan. And the Left has bought it, lock, stock, and barrel.
And we’ve got it in our stupid public schools that we pay for.
Oops, the tent fell down
Folks are kind of upset with a middle school in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, where the kids got an assignment to decide “Whom to leave behind” if “Earth is doomed to destruction” and you can only save eight people (https://constitution.com/disgusting-ohio-schoolwork-exposed-by-shocked-parents/).
The kiddies get a list of 12 individuals and are told to pick just eight for berths on a spaceship to another planet. Then the class as a whole has a pow-wow to decide the final roster.
Here’s the tricky part:
Nine of the twelve candidates on the list belong to entitled Minorities. Two are harder to identify. And the only obviously white candidate is “an armed racist police officer who has been accused of using excessive force.” How many of the kiddies do you think picked him?
So I guess the proposal is to populate the new planet with nobody but representatives of grievance-touting Minorities. But here’s a tricky bit the “educators” hadn’t thought of.
With only Minorities on the new planet, who are they going to blame for all their troubles? Without someone to blame and demonize, liberalism totally falls apart–like a circus big top with all its ropes cut.
Anyway, some of Cuyahoga Falls’ elected officials are looking into this. For what it’s worth. “Educators” always get away with stuff like this. That’s how they screwed up our country.
On this blog alone there are enough “education follies” posts to fill a good-sized book–actual news reports of real follies and outrages perpetrated by what we laughingly call “public education.”
In spite of the mass of information to the contrary, tens of millions of our fellow Americans continue to send their children to public schools to be educated by strangers trained by very Far Left teachers’ unions–and then on to college to finish the job. Why do they do this?
After some fruitless conversation in a chat room yesterday, it was made clear to me again, for the umpteenth hundredth time, that people simply refuse to believe the truth about public education. The truth is plain for all to see: it would take some effort to miss it. Nevertheless, most of America does not see. Decide for yourself whether it’s because they really can’t see or have just chosen, obstinately, not to see.
Yesterday the thing they refused to believe (the people I was chatting with) was that the single biggest lesson taught in public schools is that your age-group peers–other kids–are the most important people in your life. So you must please them, you must conform to their expectations, you must try, no matter what the cost, to be popular. They are much more important than your family. Your family is so un-cool! Boring! But conformity with your “friends” is everything.
That was the case even when I went to school, way back when.
It is still the case now.
Uh, people–could you, like, just take a minute to look at our freakin’ culture? Do you like what you see? Really?
God help us.
Remember those glory days when the Worst Lady–no one voted for her, nor had she an iota of lawful authority to do any of this–meddled with your kids’ school lunches? ‘Cause she knew best, you peasants!
Only sometimes those government school lunches didn’t turn out so good, did they?
Well, if you’re going to let the government feed your children’s minds, you might as well let them feed their bodies, too.
An 11-year-old girl in Maryland is now, er, famous for showing her disdain for America by kneeling during the Pledge of Allegiance at school–and Hillary Clinton, the unindicted felon who tried to be president, has given her a big thumbs-up. “Keep up the good work!” crowed Hillary (http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/news/401981-hillary-clinton-praises-child-who-kneeled-during-pledge-of-allegiance)
The child said she was “inspired” by former NFL washout Colin Kaepernick, the loser who started all this. The ACLU is getting involved. The kid has been on TV. Maybe the Democrats could run her for the Senate or something.
At 11 years old, it’s not remotely possible that this child knows what she’s talking about. But I’m sure she knows she’s famous now. Won’t those other kids be jealous! And of course there’s absolutely, positively no way she could’ve been put up to this by some publicity-hungry adult.
I hate it when they use children as props. At worst it will corrupt them. At very best it’s taking shameful advantage of their innocence. If there is a lower form of life than a liberal, I can’t imagine what it is.
Go ahead–you tell me what happens to a country that teaches its next generation to despise it.
Liberalism must be utterly destroyed. Before it destroys America.
This is a little bit alarming, don’t you think?
A study recently published in Science Robotics found that children are vulnerable to peer pressure exerted by “small humanoid robots” (http://blogs.discovermagazine.com/d-brief/2018/08/15/robot-peer-pressure-is-coming/#.W3WU9s5Kj3h). It doesn’t even have to be from other kids.
The test, repeated on 43 different children, was to sit a child down with three “small humanoid robots” and ask, “Which of these lines is the same length as that one?” When the robots answered first and gave the wrong answer, so did the child–even though he could see, of course, which line was the same length as the other. Peer pressure applied by freakin’ robots trumped the testimony of the child’s own eyes 74% of the time.
It didn’t work on adults. Adults needed peer pressure from other human beings to get them to give the wrong answer.
Do we see in this experiment evidence that our children’s minds can be easily manipulated by whoever’s programming the robots, the TV shows, the smart phones, and the other gizmos?
Of course, we don’t need electronic doodads to accomplish this. The main lesson always taught by public schools, long before anybody had a robot, is that the most important people in your life are your age-group peers–and you’d better conform to them, or be considered an oddball: no friends, no dates. Family, schmamily, your “friends” are where it’s at.
It’s a good thing God has provided us with a Savior, because we need one. Let me count the ways!
If this image does not disturb you, what will?
That item about the Drag Queen Story Hour really cheesed me off, and also made me wonder–why in the world are liberals doing this? Do they honestly, truly want their little boys to grow up to be drag queens? Transgenders? I mean, what do they think they’re going to get out of this? Someone give me a clue!
Another point that mystifies me is, why do we, who are not them, continue to tolerate this? It’s our hard-earned tax money being used against us. It’s our children who are being exposed to this. It’s our country, our culture, that’s being debased and befouled. Why do we not defend ourselves and our families? Are we that terrified of being branded un-cool?
What kind of world are these people trying to make? A world of total sexual confusion? Who benefits from that? Do they truly hate goodness, decency, and wholesomeness that much? Do they have no fear of God? Are they convinced He will not judge them?
Well, at least they’re making it harder and harder for normal people just to toss it off as harmlessly eccentric characters just doing their own thing. It’s very much more than that.
Some of you believe this business is satanic, inspired and orchestrated by a supernatural force of evil.
I don’t know how to answer that.
