 Quoting: ~THE IRANIAN~


If you are trying to insinuate that every single school in the U.S. imparts to their students that it's okay so misspell words and it's just fine to believe 1+1=3, you are totally off base. Maybe a couple of schools in LaLa Land (California) have that approach, but it's not widespread.

Yes, there has been a dumbing down of America. If not, how could obama get elected?

Not sure what the agenda is of that video, but it's wacked out.

At least the kiddies aren't learning the fine "art" of head-sawing in kindergarten.

check out what John Taylor Gatto has to say about the USA school system....book
We get the powers over us that we've earned collectively. Humanity, as a whole, is self-interested, shallow, ignorant, violent and immoral; small wonder, therefore, that our leaders (secret or otherwise) reflect that. You want better leaders, become better people.

I forgive myself, I Love myself, I'm sorry, Please forgive me, I forgive you, I love you, Thank you.

OP, instead of worrying about America, in your region of the world there are more than enough problems to worry about. Think about it - a people would have to be smart before they can be dumbed down.

Re: The Deliberate Dumbing Down of America
I am 23 and have pretty much just gone through the school system, in one of the whitest and pussiest liberal schools there are in my city.

Nowhere, I repeat, absolutely nowhere did our math teachers tell us that "2+2 can equal 5" so our feelings wouldn't be hurt. This is a fucking lie and I want to see their source for that information. It might go on down south, but not where I attended.

This video was basically tailored to get a bunch of hicks pissed off at "pussy liberals who dont want to hurt anyones feelings" and those pussy liberal teachers that are trying to turn our sons into a bunch of gays! or whatever
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1084293




You're 23 and you're not dumbed down, but you know all about what happens in the South. LOL

You ARE a dumb prejudiced idiot. Their work is finished with you. Go drink your Obama koolaid and glory in your "superiority".

Re: The Deliberate Dumbing Down of America
Nothing less than heart breaking.


I see it every day in the kids. I live in downtown Olympia WA and what I see on a daily basis at the InterCity bus station is the fruit of our destructive education system, coupled with single parent house holds where getting high and drunk is all that matters to the parents.


It burns me to the core to see this. Im 30 and dont have any children, by choice.


And yet every day I see the worst parents popping out kids for no other reason than the husband and wife got lazy and werent using birth control (It is both of their responsibilities).


I had a conversation with a friend about where this country is, and the core of it is family/education. From the family should come the morals and from the education should come the means by which to properly raise a child.


Not every one has it great, so I dont down them, because I am one of them. But if a person is willing to have a child, then they should be what a parent is supposed to be, not what they "think" a parent is supposed to be.


Heart breaking... Our leaders will answer for their actions.

Very interesting video, with lots of fact lined up; rings true to me. However I can't understand why the maker uses subliminal signals in form of very short flash-ins of terrible pictures and red light. Very disturbing and makes me question the intent

Re: The Deliberate Dumbing Down of America
In 1991 I went back to school [junior college]; I was in my late thirties. Even back then, most students coming directly from high school had to take remedial courses in math and (especially) English composition.

The students had no idea how to express themselves with the written word, or even verbally. They did not understand basic ideas like "deduction" and "induction" to support the thesis.

The math students did better; however, that was then! Since then, I have taught as a substitute at both junior and senior high schools. I thoroughly enjoyed math classes because I could work with students without concerning myself with "political correctness" [definitely an oxymoron].

My youngest granddaughter is 4 years of age -- I will help my son homeschool her!

I retired 2 years ago. I can verify there is more propaganda being taught in junior, and especially senior, high school than useful knowledge. Students are discouraged from questioning -- from thinking for themselves. The really smart ones just remain quiet and regurgitate back onto paper what the instructor babbles, in order to get a high grade.

Education in this country must be performed by the parents, or other private institutions. There are still some private [and church] schools that are trustworthy.

BTW know what your children watch! Vampire and zombie movies and many reality shows can damage their chances for a sound education.

First of all, memorizing 'dates' isn't what's wrong with the students. Who gives a fuck when a war started? Or who fought in WWI?

They need to learn WHY the wars started and whose REALLY behind them.

We're onto the deception by now.

It's like trying to convince us Eve came from Adams rib and Adam came from dust! Oh...okay!

It's not flying anymore. We're dumber because our senses are kicking in now.

This planet cannot go on at this rate too much longer. The jig is up.
We achieved final (and future) failure. We're stalled at ebb.


Fuck wars and history. They're lies. Fuck material wealth. That's a head games. Fuck territories. That's greed. Fuck governments. They're corrupt. Fuck everything that they deem important to know. None of that matters!

Math and music (harmonics) are the only two things that are Universal and worth knowing about.

Re: The Deliberate Dumbing Down of America
hehe, dont be so concerned with these things. The average 17yo can build their own website, program servers, type 160+ words per min., run dozens of pieces of software, setup routers and firewalls, setup networks, repair networks, run all electronics, play at least 3 sports, and two or more of many different trade skills. ..and thats not even what they are going to school for.

Around here we add farming, hunting, fishing, logging, gun repair, auto repair before they are 20yo.

IMHO, Sesame Street started the real slide in education - everything went downhill from there on.


One of my favorite commentators on the dumbing down of the western populations via the education system, is John Taylor Gatto. If you can find any articles by this guy, they are well worth the read.

The Roman empire fell apart due to brain poisoning from lead. We are doing a similar thing here with flouride (and aluminum.) Even if it is more gradual - and I'm not saying it is - it still could mean we fall apart, too. Did you ever wonder why so many young people today are dumb and so many elderly people have Alzheimer's? Now you know why.

Re: The Deliberate Dumbing Down of America
Yeah sure, it's easy to blame others for your own stupidity. But the truth is, they all CHOSE TO BE DUMB. No on forced them to be dumb. Smart kids get picked on in school. Your idiot children love to taunt, mock and bully those who they see as being weaker and they idolize stupid sportsmen and women who train only their body and not their minds. What do you expect? If you believe there is some conspiracy to make you and your children stupid, then it seems you're dumber than I thought. Dumb people hate smart people, that's a fact, because most dumb people are insecure and have no confidence and anyone who they see as being smarter, they get aggressive with. Why do you think there's special programs to allow those kids who want to learn, and who are intelligent (learn fast), to be taken out of normal classrooms and separated from the herd?

No one is making you or your children dumb, except yourselves. No one can stop a child from learning. It's just bad parenting, bad parents who expect other people (teachers) to raise their kids for them. People just don't learn because they refuse to, in favour of beliefs. You idiots make me laugh. I don't give a shit what you think about me or what I say because it's the truth and your beliefs will never change that.

Learn to raise your kids better, dumbasses. Stop blaming everyone but yourselves.
