I saw this recently and it sums up at least part of this blog’s main messages:
We all get lured into a false sense of security that is meted out through the generations by those who lust for power. Anyone now living, regardless of their age, has grown used to the serpent in our midst known as the public school. Many are so used to its presence that they think I’m kooky for saying the things I do. I’m confident that history will prove me right. These poor souls have already bought into the idea of a benevolent government, run by benevolent men, with only our, their servant’s, best interest at heart. These state worshipers have a false sense of man’s goodness, and his capacity for goodness, especially if he is “government”.
But man is not basically good. Man is a creature of self-interest. This is true for me, you, company owners, employers, employees, teachers, administrators, and all who work in government at every level. It is that very self-interest that drives those in power to use the schoolhouse as a tool to ensure their power and the exercise of it.
The founders understood that the constitution was not a document suitable for slaves and serfs who look to government as their provider and healer, who worship government as their god, and who are ready to turn every aspect of their lives over to a government that presents itself as a solution to all their problems.
The schoolhouse is the state’s best and strongest tool for ensuring future generations of slaves. Don’t let your children be one of them.
