To quote the line from the film ‘Forrest Gump’, “Stupid Is, As Stupid Does”. This sentiment is so well conceived, and so descriptive of what’s going these days. People are doing things that can only be described as ‘stupid’, and of course it’s cause and effect; you do something stupid, you’re going to get a stupid result.
The recent events in Charolettesville could not be a better example of this. Mass stupidity on parade. People caught up in emotional reactions without thinking about what results their actions would have (except for those demented individuals that organized the events in order to achieve the exact outcome they’d hope for). So we have to ask ‘How Did We Get Here’?
The answer of course is not a simple one, and it’s not something that ‘just happened’ spontaneously. The American public has endured a multi decades long march towards being ‘Dumbed Down’, which of course begins with the education system, designed and manipulated to have the literal result of less educated citizens. Not going to attempt to get into the whole history and genesis of this topic here, as it’s a very involved assignment to bring forth the details, and documentation references to that end. Suffice it to say that it’s not an accident that we’ve come to this point. If you do a lttle ‘digging’ you’ll uncover the information. And remember education is not just about the memorization of facts that will mostly never be used in adult life. It’s also about; decision making, creative expression, and consciousness expansion.
A recent article by Liam Clancy underscores these ‘facts’. Here are some quotes from his article;
“It’s no surprise to hear that America’s education system is in disarray, with Common Core dumbing down young students, faith absent from education and underpaid teachers increasingly unfit to serve as effective educators”
“But all of that is by design, contends Alex Newman, an international journalist and co-author of “Crimes of the Educators: How Utopians are Using Government Schools to Destroy America’s Children”
“Newman believes the government education system is not built to educate but to create obedient, unlearned drones who are subservient to authority. “It’s really the education system that is at the foundation of what eventually emerges as culture, politics, government and all the rest of it,” Newman began. “Education is where we went wrong, so if we’re going to fix this, education is the place to be involved”
“Newman was educated at an array of top private schools but realizes his academic upbringing was irregular”
“On the other end of the spectrum [from private schools], you have what’s going on in the government schools. It’s worse than a bad education: It’s a system deliberately designed to handicap the individual”
