“Government is not reason – It is not eloquence – It is FORCE. A dangerous servant and a fearful master.” George Washington
Noah Webster, the father of the American English Language had this to say about education in America, “In my view, the Christian religion is the most important and one of the first things in which all children, under a free government, ought to be instructed…No truth is more evident to my mind than that the Christian religion must be the basis of any government intended to secure the rights and privileges of a free people.”
Mr. Webster was asked to write a dictionary for America and accomplished that with his 1828 Dictionary of The American English Language. He laid out how Americans could and should think by using the Bible as a reference for many of his definitions. His dictionary was for educating a Christian American people. What kind of dictionaries do we have now? What reference does a modern dictionary use?
By contrast, the evil Vladimir Lenin, a man caught up in the persuasions of Satan had this to say about education, "People think in words and how they interpret words is WHO THEY ARE.” He instructed his generals, "We must invent words and change the definition of words so we can mold the people into the kind of people we want.” Lenin was a professor, godless, and father of Communism in Russia.
Personally, I went to the same school as Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Edison. My education didn’t stop with my not receiving a diploma. Instead, my curiosity has caused me to continue my education right up through today.
To understand the educational process one must understand the role of Teachers vs. teachers. The term “teacher” is a self-proclaimed label while “Teacher” is a title bestowed by others. The Teacher is one who is in search of truth and to whom, if he or she achieves enlightenment, others of us look for the truth he or she perceives. The Teacher is a seeker for that which he knows not; the teacher is an indoctrinator attempting to insinuate into the minds of others that which he or she knows.
We need only bear in mind that learning is a taking-from, not injecting-into process. Each individual is in charge of his own doors of perception and admits only that which he chooses. Thus, to qualify as a Teacher one must achieve those intellectual heights that will attract others seeking to advance.
Liberty – the free market, private ownership, limited government way of life – with its moral and spiritual antecedents (going before), would be featured by Teachers. As it is now, teachers abound in all walks of life; they retard rather than advance liberty (i.e. the equality of man as expressed in his relationship with the Creator). They instead foster servitude through their indoctrination.
That said: There is NO reference to education in our Constitution. Why? Because the Founders recognized that if government had charge of education, the only thing taught would be in keeping with the government’s opinion. We see how government schools gave the world Nazis and their legions of followers. The Communist “Professor” Lenin used government schools to promote his philosophy and convert the godly country of Russia into a godless hellhole for the Russian people. These are just two examples of government education.
In 1835 the pedagogue Horace Mann came on the scene in America. He was an advocate of government schooling. Mann was persistent and managed to get government schooling in America. It’s interesting, Karl Marx made his appearance about the same time as Mann. In the beginning, the State of Massachusetts had to bring out the National Guard to force parents to send their children to the government’s halls of indoctrination.
Oh! There is no such thing as “public” schools in that we all make up the public. There are however government schools and private schools. Private schools are schools that in no way accept government funding. When a school holds its hand out for any form of government funding, then the government’s curriculum will be taught.
With more government schools, over the last 100 years, the IQ level in America has declined by 14%. Consider the legacy of the advocate of involuntary socialism in America, Professor John Dewey, a man caught up in the persuasions of Satan. He let his pride loose by saying… “We vehemently strive to enforce our “rights” under the First Amendment to see evil, speak evil and hear evil. We demand to be free of the restraints of the Ten Commandments. Laws of Natures God, and our accountability to God.” Fool! Like all the rest of societal animals, man is a servant. It only depends on whether he serves God, good, or the Devil, evil. Man is the only one of God’s creations that has the ability to reason with his Creator therefore he is held accountable for his actions. Dewey bragged how he taught/indoctrinated 35,000 students/clones to his philosophy and sent them throughout America to “teach.” Professors like Charles Pierce and Stewart Chase share Dewey’s legacy. Pierce was heard to say, “The universe as a whole is open-ended (Godless). If there is no fixed nature (absolutes) of anything or any enduring order, then it must be possible to reshape man and the world about us ACCORDING TO OUR WILLS.” Dewey called for, “the modification of traditional ideals of culture, traditional subjects of study and traditional methods of teaching and discipline…the schools will surely…share in the building of the social order.” Stuart Chase stated, “Should the Communist have all the fun remaking the world.” Progressive education has as its goal the creation of a being that is an animal in human form, willing to accept leadership like Lenin, the Clinton’s, Bushes, Obama’s etc.
Because we have rights from our Creator, we make laws. Man is created a free out of control being. He has the power of choice at birth. As an out of control being, only a fool wouldn’t recognize what he is capable of. He must be schooled to being in control and that’s where morality comes in.
In control of what you might ask? His own actions, of course. Where does the standard we measure “in control” come from? Who can spell it out, other than his Creator/God. We can look to democracy, mans majority-rule political system with an absence of God as a form of government, but democracy is nothing but out-of-control lynch mob justice; right, lost the vote. Scratch out Liberty if you like democracy. Paul says in 11 Corinthians 3:17, “Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is LIBERTY.” It’s interesting; the Supreme Court is partially made up of out of control people that love democracy.
In 1943, there were 109,000 school districts. Schools were controlled by their local communities, not the State or Federal government. States lost control of education when they put their hand out for federal money. By 1992, with the Federal government in charge, school districts had diminished to 15,000. I don’t have today’s figure but I am sure that figure has been shrunk down considerably since.
Aside from this, government sees the role of government schools as the guardian of school children bringing them up as government sees fit. The will of government overshadows the will of parents in all facets of a child’s life, and this is enforced. Now, children are wards of the state, to be brought up as the state sees fit. Be politically correct or you run the risk of loosing your children to the state.
What are children being taught in government schools? Evolution in place of Creation. In many instances, what was considered immorality is being taught as perfectly acceptable, to name a few? The three “R’s” have been replaced with the gibberish found in Outcome Based Education perpetrated on the American people by George Bush Sr. followed up by Barrack Obama’s Common Core Educational system. Since when is the educational system to be dictated by the President? Show me that in the Constitution.
No, as long as trash like Outcome Based “indoctrination” and Common Core “indoctrination” is perpetrated on our children you will see IQ’s continue to diminish along with the standards of morality. The will and appetite of the Dewey’s, Pierce’s and Chase’s will continue to grow in America.
Was Bush, the Clinton’s and Obama’s thinking mentored by Lenin’s ideas when they perpetrated these “indoctrinational” reforms on the American people? Absolutely! While in office, did they work at “molding” the American people into the kind of people they want? Obama’s still there so we have to see what other destructions to America will be his legacy.
Yes evil forces during the 20th Century on into the 21st Century worked and have been working to bring the people under the persuasions of Satan. The media and entertainment industries have been willing accomplices but there is a ray of hope with the alternative media. Seekers of truth must be very diligent and turn to God for an eye opener of everything they see and hear. The book of James 1:5 KJV says… “If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given to him.”
Hebrews 10:31 KJV… “It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.”
