And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.

 Quoting: JohnathanM


ive watched her videos. this was after my kids were removed from the public schools.

here is the deal. No Child Left Behind was code for making everyone a hell of a lot dumber. and here's why. there are allot more people now, and the percentage of problem kids has gotten larger. the learning disabled or mentally impaired are in the same classrooms as the highly gifted. they slow down to teach the dummies. the smart are bored and become dumber.

and that in a nutshell is why IQ's are dropping like rocks.

Another guy who writes about this is John Taylor Gatto(did I get that right? It's been a while).

Extremely depressing and frightening subject!

All sense of history is lost. One thing they talk about is the steep decline of vocabulary used in primary education textbooks. 100 years ago or even 50 years ago young people were expected to be much, much more literate than they are now.

That can only be BAD and it's scary to think that it's been done deliberately.
"Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus. " (1 Thessalonians 5.18)

"Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."

George Orwell, 1984

It's a beautiful thing, the destruction of words. Of course the great wastage is in the verbs and adjectives, but there are hundreds of nouns that can be got rid of as well. It isn't only the synonyms; there are also the antonyms. After all, what justification is there for a word which is simply the opposite of some other word? A word contains its opposite in itself. Take "good", for instance. If you have a word like "good", what need is there for a word like "bad"? "Ungood" will do just as well — better, because it's an exact opposite, which the other is not. Or again, if you want a stronger version of "good", what sense is there in having a whole string of vague useless words like "excellent" and "splendid" and all the rest of them? "Plusgood" covers the meaning, or "doubleplusgood" if you want something stronger still. Of course we use those forms already. but in the final version of Newspeak there'll be nothing else. In the end the whole notion of goodness and badness will be covered by only six words — in reality, only one word. Don't you see the beauty of that, Winston?

Don't you see that the whole aim of Newspeak is to narrow the range of thought? In the end we shall make thoughtcrime literally impossible, because there will be no words in which to express it. Every concept that can ever be needed, will be expressed by exactly one word, with its meaning rigidly defined and all its subsidiary meanings rubbed out and forgotten.

This easily explains why so many people believe in "chemtrails".

Great video.

But, very sad.

All made worse because of many people's impression that upholding standards is somehow mean, un-nice, un-kind, intolerant, racist, xenophobic, homophobic, transgenderphobic, phobic-phobic.

"I feel, there I am (wonderful)" is the motto of many Americans and other peoples.

Before you know it, voila, you're trapped in the world of George Orwell's 1984.
