Educating for a “Greater Good”

March 4, 2011

Why is it that the liberal/progressive movement is gaining the support to alter the essence of American life to align with their goals of a society based upon the collective freedoms for the greater good of society?  One of the reasons is that the liberal/progressives have gained support from the under 30 age group in the country.  How did this gain occur?  Through the educational establishment in the United States.  I’m not speaking to just the university level educators.  The beginnings reach all the way down to the elementary educational institutions in this country.  In other words, it those pesky unionized teachers!

While the liberal/progressive block has been unable to overcome the conservative strongholds directly, they have found that by “educating” the last two generations of children into their “greater good” society mis-truths they have gained temporary overall improvement in the size of their base.  One thing they understand, and use to their advantage, is that young minds are very impressionable.  Coupled with the distraction most parents have over what is going on in the nation’s schools the kids don’t stand a real chance to resist what they’re being taught.

These “educators” have found that by teaching children the ABCs of liberal/progressive beliefs they have successfully created a deeper class divide in our society to their political benefit.  Over the course of their primary K-12 education the children have been indoctrinated into accepting that all members of the society are owed entitlements without exerting the effort to gain them through their own hard work.  They have been cemented to the ideas that in order to serve the “greater good,” the wealth of the nation must be taken and handed to those who have not reached an economic level deemed as “fair” by the liberal/progressives.  These children are further indoctrinated that the “system” is best managed by the government, as long as that government is of a liberal/progressive ideology.  When the political opposition gains control then the government is considered to be guided by a hateful and racist white elite bent upon subjugating the citizenry into slavery to that white elite.

The polishing of these beliefs occurs in the universities and colleges.  Here the children get a final shine and are taught how to resist the “hatred” (read: truth) of the conservative political movement.  These children are prepared to be the foot soldiers for the liberal/progressives, ready to spew hatred towards their elders (including their own parents) for daring to suggest that true freedom does not come through the liberal/progressive policies.  I await the day when some judge orders that an adult child is to be maintained on his/her parents medical insurance because it is the child’s “right” to have the coverage under the Affordable Care Act. Our kids will point out how that “proves” how good the liberal/progressives society operates.

At some later time the children being educated into this liberal/progressive ideology will, hopefully, turn an honest eye onto the beliefs they were indoctrinated into by questioning the structure of the beliefs they accepted.  For instance,  while they currently support the redistribution of the wealth, especially since they are without and will gain from the redistribution, at some future point they may well find themselves on the giving end of the redistribution paradigm and realize that their hard work is now being taken from them for those who haven’t exercised the effort to improve their own lives.  With some honest contemplation then they will realize that the redistribution does not create opportunities, but instead they create dependencies that allow the “less fortunate” to demand their entitled “due.”  Continued reflections will increase the realizations that the liberal/progressive policies destroy, not improve, societies.

Do I have evidence of this educational effort by the liberal/progressive political establishment?  I do actually.  All one has to do is to look to the under 30 group in the country.  Also, I watched as the education system’s teachings persuaded, meaning brainwashed, my own adult children into believing that the liberal/progressive movement was the – allegedly – right path societies must follow.  The educators and their supporters – that’s you liberal/progressives – hope this campaign of disinformation means you’ll “win” the fight for the direction that society in the United States will follow.  Sadly, you’ve deluded yourselves into following a course of action that will ultimately backfire on you, thank goodness.  We can, if we take the time and responsibility to show the counter views to our children, point to the Europeans and the current difficulties in their societies.  They have practiced socialism, or socialism-lite, for decades and it is now coming home to haunt them.  While conservatism, in the minimal government paradigm, isn’t perfect by a long shot, it does provide truer freedom for societies than the liberal/progressive ideology.

Those of you on the left can now try to tell me how wrong I am.  The louder you are about it the more it will prove I am right.  Thanks in advance for your assistance.

    Thank God for homeschooling!

    My daughter is in her last semester at University of Hawaii. I’ve assumed she is as conservative as I am. She was telling me a couple weeks ago of an economist speaker in one of her classes who’s entire pitch was to SPEND us out of our financial woes, and that she could totally understand his points. YIKES! Of course that put a fire under my ass to flood her inbox with several articles and cartoons which proved the speaker wrong. She has yet to offer any rebuttals 🙂 COME ON MAY 14..Graduation Day!

      Teach your children well!, When they venture away, work hard to bring them back. Those of us who want freedom and liberty are going to have to shift into a higher gear and start fighting back hard.

        The homeschooling package I received suggested the student watch CNN every morning and record the top headlines.. Of course I make my son watch FoxNews and give the headlines. 🙂

          anita,

          It’s not a bad idea per se. Let them watch it with you and you can then take them to Fox and watch that together. Afterward discuss all you watched together and point out the disinformation (from both sides) and give your kids an accurate picture of what the truth is, how to evaluate information for the truth, and where to look for that truth in future.

          Never deny them from watching the other side. Remember, keep your friends close and keep your enemies closer. 😉

            Good advice PS.. but it will be very painful for me to take CNN at somethin in the morning. 🙂

            anita, just have a cup of coffee or two before you do. Not while or you’ll end up snorting hot coffee out your nose (and trust me, it ain’t fun) when you hear some of the crap you’ll hear.

    All I can say is , I’m glad my son’s aren’t in school, school anymore. My youngest son goes to the university here in Reno, & he said you’d be surprised how many professors try to get them to conform into their way of thinking. He has said many times, that if you don’t go along with them, or side with them, you’re looking at a failing grade. He has also said, that he, himself has had many debates with professors about the way things are running in this country, & how & what his thoughts are on it. Some of the professors backed down because he did prove his point to them..

    When they were in high school, most of the teachers didn’t teach, just had them read or do the assignments at the back of the chapters. They both have said, the teachers didn’t get up there & talk about anything on what they were suppose to be teaching, most of them would just sit at their desk reading a newspaper or doing something else. History teacher didn’t talk much about history, math teacher, just do what you’re suppose to do in your book, couldn’t stay after school or go in early if they had any questions or didn’t understand a certain thing, weren’t allowed inside school until the bell rang.

    Elementary was the only time they were really taught anything. We took our youngest out of school in the 10th grade, did a correspondence course through a school in Scranton Penn., finished 2 years of high school in less than a year & a half. Oldest dropped out in 11th, got his GED, went in the Army where he”s been since.

    What ever happened in teaching the way they’re suppose to teach & leave the politics out of it? Quit brainwashing the kids. It’s no wonder they think like they do anymore.

    But, this is just my opinion on it.

      I put a lot of weight in opinions when they’re based on primary evidence (you son’s testimony). I’ve been there. My youngest son is so deeply steeped in the liberal/progressive/Obama worship culture now it isn’t funny.

      He refuses to even acknowledge me or have any contact with me, especially since I am a right wing (in his mind), gun hugging, white Christian prejudiced bigot who hasn’t got the intelligence to understand that the Bible is just a made-up story book.

      And those are the nice things he has to say about me.

        PS, Both my son’s think he’s a nut case & don’t put any stock on what he talks about. My son, the youngest says that half his university just worship Obama & think he’s doing a marvelous job at running this country. I hope your relationship with your son will get better PS, I really do.

        • March 4, 2011 6:53 pm

          Thanks Judy. Good for your sons!

          As to my son, it may change/improve someday – and it may not. Here’s the tough part for many to understand – I don’t care really which way it goes. I love him and he is an adult, with the right to make his own choices.

          His choice has actually “improved” our relationship in that all the arguing between us has ceased (as a result it has lowered my blood pressure some – which makes my wife happy).

          His choice does not impact how I live my life with my wife and family here.

            Thank you PS as well. I understand what you’re saying there, as I have said to many as well, you think & believe your way, & I’ll think & believe my way, because no matter what is said, it will never be agreeable to either one. Believe me, I have relatives that I don’t even bother talking politics with, I might as well pull my hair out than try to argue with them. My husband’s older brother is one of them people who think Obama is doing a great job. I asked him one day, how he likes the changes he’s made, he just laughed & walked away, didn’t say anything. Kind of wonder now if he’s sorry he voted for him.

    My youngest son told me that his class watches student CNN several times per week at school; taking time out of a regular class period to do so, calling it a portion of their social studies learning.

    I am dismayed that I did not know this was part of their “learning” as we just moved to this area- to my knowledge, the school we came from did not require our children to learn by watching CNN- the teachers actually taught our children. We watch Fox news at home also, and only occasionally watch CNN because we cannot stand the liberal slant there. (and when I say slant, I mean incredible slant).

    I completely opposed to the fact that my child is made to watch CNN at school. What can I do to oppose this?

    I am pretty involved with my kids and do not believe (at least yet) that they buy into the progressive liberal agenda.

      Good Morning Donna 🙂

      You bring up a good point and a great question. To resolve your issue with your son watching CNN, there are two ways to go about this. 1. Take the polite route and discuss it with the administration and ask that the practise be stopped. 2. Take a book out of the liberal page and tell the administration to cease and desist or you will file a law suit. I would speak to a lawyer first before going this route, but if they can sue because kids are praying, you can sue because of the left wing propoganda being forced on your child.

      Keep up the fight for freedom!

      G!

      I can only add to gman’s response by saying that you could look into homeschooling. My wife and I do so with our (almost) 12 year old daughter. Depending on your state you may find a home schooling program that is “certified” by the state, such as one here in Colorado that uses the K12 program (http://www.k12.com/). Check them out.

      Public schools are no longer geared to educating our children. If they were we – as a nation – would not be falling behind in all areas as we continue to graduate kids from high schools. We would not have so many colleges running remedial programs in math, English, science, etc., to get the kids up to standards for learning in their selected college.

      The US education system is now designed to turn out barely educated kids who have been “properly” socialized into the liberal/progressive culture beliefs system, only needing to worry about when the next government handout will be given to them.
