We allow that to happen. My poor grandkids can speak for a long time about Rosa Parks but have only the most minimal knowlege of George Washington. They know he is on the dollar but are not real sure why.
I do not know HOW we make it stop but we better figure it our. I think we need to stop worrying about being called names and confront these people in their faces and be damn ugly about it.
I keep hearing how we do not want to stoop to their level. Thats all nice and all if you were dealing with reasonable adults, But we are not: we are dealing with children and damn stupid ones at that. You always crouch down to speak to a child directly.
“We allow that to happen. My poor grandkids can speak for a long time about Rosa Parks but have only the most minimal knowlege of George Washington. They know he is on the dollar but are not real sure why.”
This is the real problem with most public schools, they are indoctrinating and totaly neglecting real education.
Rosa Parks is illrelevent without George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, or John Adams.
We are going to have to get on the school boards, and commites and start forcing them to change the lession plans & topics, to place core emphases on American history & Federal Constitutional structured. NOT as the Federal Employees in black robes have defined it but as it is written!
That last point could not be more clear, because if you put kids in a class room and have them start reading the Edicts of Federal Employees in black robes not only are they going to get board they will get confused and misled.
Teach the Constitution, Teach about the men and Condition under-which it was written, this is the underpinning of our System of Government and the one thing they must know to exersize their vote in this country.
Tell school officials & state Representative that they cannot possibly expect our children to operate this machine if they know not how it works. Nor can they expect them to maintain such a machine if they know not how it was suppose to work.
Give them the Constitutions make them read theses laws for themselves, and ask them under such a system who should they ask to address any given issue.
Themselves, their family, their city, their State, or Washington.
Most American don’t know the answer to this question on almost any issue, thus most Americans throw away their vote trying to get a hammer to function like a screwdriver.
The result is very much what we have Frustration & dysfunction.
“I keep hearing how we do not want to stoop to their level. Thats all nice and all if you were dealing with reasonable adults, But we are not: we are dealing with children and damn stupid ones at that. You always crouch down to speak to a child directly.”
Unforutantly that is going to get worse as more and more of the population falls victim to their ignorance. We are dealing with children with the power of adults. That means the only advantage we have is our minds, and the knowledge that their own ignorance and immaturity is going to get them hurt.
In many case we are going to have to wait for that, then they might be preswared to learn. In other-cases we can just as well take advantage of their immaturity in leading them along as you would a child.(this is essencaly what liberals are trying to do)
In any-case, whatever we do we must fix this problem in our schools now so that future generations dont suffer such a disatvantag. We cannot do this everywhere but we can and we must do this in the states that we control.
Then in 20 years we shall have a foundation with which to take advantage of the self-destruction in the states we don’t control.
