There is hope for our nation, since an articulate and literate remnant is growing up to 'think God's thoughts after Him.' History is never shaped by majorities, but by principled and irate minorities who stand firm in their convictions. God spared Israel in Elijah's day because of the 7,000 hidden faithful who'd refused to worship Baal.

The Prussian model employed brainwashing techniques to transform 94% of their children into docile factory hands and cannon fodder. 4.5% of the "talented and gifted" kids received better education, to serve as the higher-functioning servitors of the state, the doctors, lawyers, teachers, and pastors. 1.5% of the kids, typically the children of the existing ruling class, got traditional, tutorial educations.

Well, our team has 4% of the school-age population. Their team, 1.5%. Our team also tends to like children more, and to have more of them. Do the math -- and the future looks bright!

Most people I’ve talked to can’t accept that the Prussian model was used in America, they just can’t accept that the goal was as you stated “to transform 94% of their children into docile factory hands and cannon fodder”.

But it’s the truth.
