It’s a Start At Least: Police Accountability
These two news stories caught my eye for different reasons. We have had a spate…
Most aspects of “modern” life are learned through our North American, forced, government education. Many of our social, economic and legal problems can be traced back to what and how you were educatated.
If you look at the roots of North American education, you’ll find that it was based on the Prussian system which had the goal of collectivizing and socializing dependence on the state for the purpose of creating an obedient population. It’s safe to say those Prussian roots have taken root in North America.
This form of education was known to be destructive in the 1800’s:
“A general State education is a mere contrivance for moulding people to be exactly like one another; and the mould in which it casts them is that which pleases the predominant power in the government, whether this be a monarch, a priesthood, an aristocracy, or the majority of the existing generation; in proportion as it is efficient and successful, it establishes a despotism over the mind, leading by natural tendency to one over the body.” – John Stuart Mill, On Liberty
If people learn to be dependent during their schooling that dependence will continue into adulthood. Such dependence also is accompanied by a lack of understanding, responsibility and personal liability by such individuals. Such training requires re-enforcment and support for years to come, which includes police, courts, prison, laws and surveillance. A grownup version of what is taught in schools, but with harsher crimes and costly punishment.
See this post for the seven lessons really being taught in government schools, which are quite different than the lessons taught to the children of the elites in private schools:
Did you know that in the wealthy nation of Switzerland, in modern times less than 1 in 4 kids go beyond elementary school. Why are kids here, treated like children into their late teens? They learn their lessons well and many are incapable of living a responsible, independent life, requiring the support of government and parents into their 20’s and 30’s.
One expert in the educational system and the lessons it really teaches young minds is John Taylor Gatto. Gatto is a 30 year veteran of the government educational system and multi-award winner for teaching excellence (New York City Teacher-of-the-Year, New York State Teacher-of-the-Year). To learn more about him:
If you would like to know what different lessons the youth of the elites learn in school here’s an excerpt from a series of videos with Mr. Gatto. Many other segments covering the whole story of the designed and desired dumbing down of America.
Government schools universally teach these 7 lessons (did you learn well?):
Here’s the bullet list and the video below John goes into the private school lessons taught:
