History and the Politics of Education **The Intentional Dumbing Down of America Exposed**
This will be a slight bit long, but it is well worth reading and understanding its contents.

Some do not know that the American educational system was co-opted by a robber baron, namely John D. Rockefeller, who created the General Education Board in 1903[1], and that his efforts to change and control the educational system lives on to this very day.[2]

Some of those who do know of the plot do not realize the reason for Rockefeller's takeover of the American Educational System, and many of them truly believe that it was from benevolence born.

What follows are snippets from THE CROWD A STUDY OF THE POPULAR MIND, which was written in 1896 by Gustave Le Bon, a French social psychologist, sociologist, anthropologist, inventor, and amateur physicist.[3] The snippets I will copy/paste from this book will show that not only was it known that certain educational systems harm students and teachers alike, but also was it known what are the end results of said harm.

As you will see from these snippets, one result was the loss of "judgment, experience, initiative, and character" in those so educated. Another was inculcating a dependence upon the state for livelihood into "schoolmasters and mistresses ", said situation resulting in the discontented being "ready for any revolution, whoever be its chiefs and whatever the goal they aim at."

Why, you might ask, would Rockefeller choose to instigate the overthrow of America, and continue to do so to this day?

Look around you. What do you see? Do you see the republic that was founded upon the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, with a Bill of Rights strongly defending our rights, or do you see a discontented populace led by discontented educators, ignorantly rebelling, on one side against the republic that lies in tatters; while on the other side the discontented lovers of the republic want to go back to the pre-Obama status quo, not knowing that what they want to go back to is (and was) a socialist democracy under an aristocracy, and that the republic has been dying for well over 100 years?

Obviously, Rockefeller and his cohorts knew what would be the results of their changes in the educational system, and being as they still encroach upon the public school system, they are still actively taking us somewhere. In other words, we're not quite there yet, but being as they openly flaunt their control and ideology, we must be fairly close; and it is this which may have people so uneasy because, even when they don't consciously know the reason for their dis-ease, they do know it sub-, or unconsciously.

Where is this dark place to which we are about to emerge (awaken)? Again, look around you. What are those who are violent criminals with impunity advocating? Some advocate it openly and by name, while others advocate it in principle. Some here on GLP embrace it unknowingly in whole or in part, but thankfully there are those here who, knowing more than your everyday advocates for change, set the record straight.

I have given you major clues as to "Who?", "When?", "Where?", and "How?". I will leave it to you to answer these questions of "What?" and "Why?", because if you refuse to use your own brain, you are knowingly consenting to be the beasts of burden for the elite, and taking the time to help you is a waste.

The next post I will make in this thread contains the snippets from Le Bon's book that I referred to above. I highly recommend that the thinkers, and lovers of truth, read the book for themselves. I got my Kindle version for free on Amazon.

Re: History and the Politics of Education **The Intentional Dumbing Down of America Exposed**
"The primary danger of this system of education—very properly qualified as Latin—consists in the fact that it is based on the fundamental psychological error that the intelligence is developed by the learning by heart of text-books. Adopting this view, the endeavour has been made to enforce a knowledge of as many hand-books as possible. From the primary school till he leaves the university a young man does nothing but acquire books by heart without his judgment or personal initiative being ever called into play. Education consists for him in reciting by heart and obeying. "Learning lessons, knowing by heart a grammar or a compendium, repeating well and imitating well—that," writes a former Minister of Public Instruction, M. Jules Simon, "is a ludicrous form of education whose every effort is an act of faith tacitly admitting the infallibility of the master, and whose only results are a belittling of ourselves and a rendering of us impotent."

SNIP

"It gives those who have been submitted to it a violent dislike to the state of life in which they were born, and an intense desire to escape from it. The working man no longer wishes to remain a working man, or the peasant to continue a peasant, while the most humble members of the middle classes admit of no possible career for their sons except that of State-paid functionaries. Instead of preparing men for life French schools solely prepare them to occupy public functions, in which success can be attained without any necessity for self-direction or the exhibition of the least glimmer of personal initiative. At the bottom of the social ladder the system creates an army of proletarians discontented with their lot and always ready to revolt, while at the summit it brings into being a frivolous bourgeoisie, at once sceptical and credulous, having a superstitious confidence in the State, whom it regards as a sort of Providence, but without forgetting to display towards it a ceaseless hostility, always laying its own faults to the door of the Government, and incapable of the least enterprise without the intervention of the authorities.

SNIP

"While a business man has the greatest difficulty in finding an agent to represent him in the colonies, thousands of candidates solicit the most modest official posts. There are 20,000 schoolmasters and mistresses without employment in the department of the Seine alone, all of them persons who, disdaining the fields or the workshops, look to the State for their livelihood. The number of the chosen being restricted, that of the discontented is perforce immense. The latter are ready for any revolution, whoever be its chiefs and whatever the goal they aim at. The acquisition of knowledge for which no use can be found is a sure method of driving a man to revolt.

SNIP

"One might consent, perhaps, at a pinch, to continue to accept all the disadvantages of our classical education, although it produced nothing but discontented men, and men unfitted for their station in life, did the superficial acquisition of so much knowledge, the faultless repeating by heart of so many text-books, raise the level of intelligence. But does it really raise this level? Alas, no! The conditions of success in life are the possession of judgment, experience, initiative, and character—qualities which are not bestowed by books. Books are dictionaries, which it is useful to consult, but of which it is perfectly useless to have lengthy portions in one's head. The young Frenchman is deprived, and precisely at the age when they are most fruitful, of all these precious contacts, of all these indispensable elements of assimilation. For seven or eight years on end he is shut up in a school, and is cut off from that direct personal experience which would give him a keen and exact notion of men and things and of the various ways of handling them."

Dark Intentions of Public Schooling

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 49812571

Thank you, AC, for taking the time to post this video. I'd not seen it before, so I watched it, and I have a few comments on it:

For the good of society? How does utterly ruining the lives of so many make for a good society? It makes for malcontents. OHHH, I get it, the good (Dark Ages) society that is right around the corner.

Standardized tests would cause the lower classes to confront their biological inferiority? That is incorrect. It's the higher classes who are inferior with their inbred diseases, deformities, and insanity.

Sort of like wearing a dunce cap? By no means is it like wearing a dunce cap. It's like anger bordering on hatred for being intentionally held down, and not being allowed to fully exercise one's abilities, and for being impoverished as a result.

...and forgive me all of you nice people, but I wish there was a hell in which the psychos who did, and are doing, this to us (for generations) to burn. I am one who believes that the idea of a Hell was inculcated into us in order to prevent us from seeking justice here and now, on this side of the curtain.

"Every child in America entering school at the age of five is insane because he comes to school with certain allegiances to our founding fathers, toward our elected officials, toward his parents, toward a belief in a supernatural being, and toward the sovereignty of this nation as a separate entity. It’s up to you as teachers to make all these sick children well – by creating the international child of the future"
Psychiatrist Chester M. Pierce, Address to the Childhood International Education Seminar, 1973

This dumbing down has been a long time in the making.

Re: History and the Politics of Education **The Intentional Dumbing Down of America Exposed**
While in college I came across an old text book on surveying. My own studies paralleled surveying to a degree so I decided to buy the book. It was tattered and decrepit looking so the book store was only asking 50 cents.

Anyway, I read this book over the next several weeks while going about my classes and it dawned on me that this text book was way better than any of my new books. It was written in the late 1940s.There was no pictures or insets, just a few simple sketches. It read logically and simply from beginning to end. Everything was so straight forward.

And this book which was only mid way in size between a paper back novel and a standard text book, and which had maybe 300 pages at most, was equivalent in content to 3 of my books.

I think ^it^ just gave me red karma. Someone did, with the message, "Funny how that negative karma spreads one you use it. Enjoy."

Funny, because I didn't give it, or anyone else, red karma, and I haven't had a problem with anyone in a long time, except for ^it^ vomiting it's trolling immaturity all over my thread.

Oh well, maybe it will grow up one day. Who knows? Miracles do happen.

They only needed one word to obtain their goal.

That word is---> income.

What is income?
Burton's Legal Thesaurus:
profit from sale--> income.
profits--> earnings, income.
profits of commerce--> income.

Income--> GAIN from labor (gain = profit).

Now...
What happens when the agencies such as the Treasury, State Dept of Assessment and Taxation (SDAT) records everyone's paycheck as income?
That is equivalent to recording everyone's paycheck as --> profit.

Why do Businesses and Financial Institutions pay for water, electricity, ground rent/property tax and so on? Because they use the Building/property and land to generate profit/revenue.

The agencies such as the Treasury and SDAT will profit from Business profit.

Now can you see what happens when they use the word "income" that is defined with "profit" and use this word to represent the paychecks that are created from someone's labor?

If your paycheck is recorded as "income", it will look like you owe the "income tax", or owe for all of the fees and taxes that is associated with this one word---> income.

It didn't take much to turn people's labor into slave labor... all it took was one word---> income.

You are not paying for water because you owe it.
You are not paying property tax (ground rent)because you owe it.
You are not paying the income tax because you owe it.
You are not paying for yearly registration renewals because you owe it.
You are not paying for (fill in the space) because you owe it.....
YOU ARE PAYING FOR THESE FEES AND TAXES BECAUSE IT LOOKS LIKE YOU ARE RECEIVING INCOME!
And income is---> PROFIT.

On paper, It has been made to look like you are receiving profit.

"All of your children are victims of systems beyond their control
A plague upon your ignorance
And the grey despair of your ugly little lives

All of your children are victims of the lies you believe
A plague upon your ignorance
THAT KEEP THE YOUNG FROM THE TRUTH THAT THEY DESERVE"

Frank Zappa, around 1967-69


"If you truly love you're children you'll keep them as far away as you can from public school and churches"

Zappa, sometime in the 70's
