Nevermind, I found it, and now it's on my wish list.

I've lately been studying Germany before and during Hitler's rise to power, and seeing many similarities to America and Europe today. And I believe you and Gatto are correct that schooling as we know it prepares the way for tyranny.

What grieves me most about our compulsory schooling is that it robs children of the opportunity to develop into what they could become - it deprives them of "the pursuit of happiness" in its original sense. (Reminds me of the kids in "Indiana Jones & The Temple of Doom".)

I’ve worked with children for years and what I have found out makes me livid at the evil of the Billy Ayers types who write the curricula. They literally destroy children and their futures. Bk Eakman and many others have documented this and they are shut out and marginalized so no one listens to them (the Truth). This cruddy curriculum has existed for decades and they rename it to appease parents who are disgusted with their children’s (non) progress.

I loved the Bonhoeffer book—he coined “religionless Christianity” and recognized it in the NYC Riverside Church in 1931 built by John D. Rockefeller who installed the “paster” whom was adored in front page adoration—in Time magazine, etc. (To destroy Christianity from within). Made Bonhoeffer sick—what he was hearing. Same stuff was going on in the 30’s with many of the so-called Christian churches in Germany—which were easy for Hitler to take over. The book documents the church activity in German—and his connections in England, etc. He loved some of the Fundamentalist Black churches in America though.

Similarities to the Weimar Republic and 3rd Reich and America is startling—especially when you read about religion. The “Kill God” group was started in Frankfurt Germany—so they were the first to be swallowed up by the “filth of the Rhine”-—that is what English men called the socialist/Marxists ideology which swept into England and destroyed their classical education.

CS Lewis writes about this ideology in Abolition of Man—the secular humanism that kicks out God and Virtue and replaces it with moral relativism and “tolerance” as the leading Virtue (to destroy any aversion to evil and make Relativism the only reality which always deletes God).
