Reason 160: Because Ignorant Citizens Readily Follow Shysters

I know you’ve seen the man-on-the-street interviews showcasing American ignorance in governance and civics. And to this I’ll add one more area of ignorance that proves to be just as catastrophic: economics. Together, widespread ignorance in these is a recipe for disaster for all but those who are bringing it about. It will be easy street for that lot. Preaching “inequality” these shysters will convince the civically and economically ignorant masses to vote them into office so that these shysters can cash in on some inequality themselves, and get unfettered power to boot. We can see this very thing already in our current Vacationer and Chief, a millionaire running around bemoaning to the poor masses who put him there that there’s no income equality.

But how does this happen? Well, to begin, Americans live in a special country unlike any other in the history of man. It’s rule of law was set up to frustrate shysters. But there is a work around, and the education institution is key to bringing it about. In short, you teach children from their earliest age that they live in a rotten nation. You teach covetousness,envy, instant gratification, sex, sex, sex, and more sex, and then victim-hood.  Finally you teach that they are all entitled to “their fair share”. By the time a child reaches voting age he will be ready to throw his unique founding and constitution in the crapper and will be ready to vote for promises of utopia.

Here is an article by David Davenport of the Hover Institute pointing out a “Crises In Civics Education“.

A few stats from the article:

The latest NAEP (National Assessment of Educational Progress) test results from spring, 2015 showed that only 18% of 8th grade students were “proficient” or better in history and only 23% in civics or government.  Perhaps even more shocking, only 1% were “advanced” in history and 2% in civics.  Last year, a poll of 18-34 year olds found that 77% could not name one of their home state U.S. Senators.  A 2012 survey by Xavier University concluded that only one-third of Americans could pass the civics portion of the U.S. citizenship test, while the immigrant pass rate is 97.5%.

To not know what you have given to you as a heritage is to lose it. For those who want to enslave, that is the greatest idea ever. But for those who long to live free, it’s not good news at all. This nation will not be lost in a generation, nor will it be recovered. But if you do want your children to have a chance at the freedom you’ve experienced, then teach them at home. It really is this nation’s only hope. But more importantly than that, It may well be your child’s only hope.
