Your Kids Belong to the Collective

http://www.infowars.com/your-kids-be...he-collective/

I post few articles in CP, but I think this one is exceptional as it really gets to the heart of the problem I have with the direction the current administration is headed. Specifically the last paragraph nails my biggest concern. The more government control the greater the power of the few and the less power of the many. That is why big companies love the Democratic party with their heavy bureaucratic approach because they raise the cost of doing business so high that only the big corporation can succeed reducing competition and promoting near monopolies.

“If one understands that socialism is not a share-the-wealth program, but is in reality a method to consolidate and control the wealth, then the seeming paradox of superrich men promoting socialism becomes no paradox at all,” he wrote. “Instead it becomes the logical, even the perfect tool of power-seeking megalomaniacs. Communism, or more accurately, socialism, is not a movement of the downtrodden masses, but of the economic elite.”

Seems to me that there are a couple non-exclusive motivations to home school:

1. I live in an atrocious school district and my daughter is likely to be wasting her time during the day because she'll be having to go through more with us in the evening.
2. Schools are riddled with commies who teach nothing but things I disagree with and my precious snowflake might be around assholes.
3. Violin

When you're an adult you have to tolerate assholes, dissenting opinions, people that slow the pace of progress because they're dumb and probably won't be playing the violin.

The problem with this statement is you are directing it to the worst troll on the CP. And the dumbest.

Maybe so in some threads, but I've not had any problem expressing opinions with him and having discussion that does not degrade into personal attacks.

Another good article on federal government role in local education and even talks about the federally passed Common Core Curriculum Standards that have many home school parent anxious.


The utopian philosophy of the collective, communal ownership of your children has been an objective of many totalitarian philosophers through the decades. Nietzche espoused it, as did Marx and Engels, in so far as the 10th plank is merely in service to the 8th plank of The Communist Manifesto. The American progressive education reformer, John Dewey, echoed it in his education philosophy, parroted by Rosalie Gordon in her book, “What Happened to Our Schools?” (1956) when she wrote, “Children who know how to think for themselves spoil the harmony of the collective society which is coming where everyone is interdependent.”

The very real issue alluded to by Ms. Harris-Perry’s comments — namely, the community raising, or rather, shaping a child’s worldview — couldn’t be more timely! It is experiencing a full court press in American K-12 education today in the form of the Common Core curriculum standards being implemented in your child’s classroom and the federal government’s role in the forthcoming testing and curriculum. Many of these curricula are being written and released in real time; however, early textbooks already released to the Common Core standards suggest a focus on re-training schoolchildren with an emphasis on “how” to think, rather than an impartial focus on facts and figures. It’s a process that benefits the community of the future at the expense of individualized learning.

Save for several who have more than earned it by their own behavior, there are not many people here that I "personally attack." And I guarantee you that in more than a decade of being a CP poster I have not ONCE taken the first shot (in terms of "personal attacks") at any poster. Not even once. That's just not the way I operate. In most cases I have even engaged only after MANY personal insults have been hurled at me, giving the other guy a chance to stand down. But my policy is when I finally feel it's enough I engage and engage with conviction and a killer instinct. Trouble is you only see and remember what goes on in the present. Other, more recent posters, even more so.

No, I see it I just don't return the favor. It is interesting and in this case ironic the list of who will still attack me and who will not.

I don't think teaching a student "how" to think is anything but a boon to individualized learning.

I don't understand in what level this post pertains to me or the behavior you objected to. Honestly. Would you connect the dots for me here?

Conservatives do, for some reason.

Texas GOP rejects ‘critical thinking’ skills. Really.

In the you-can’t-make-up-this-stuff department, here’s what the Republican Party of Texas wrote into its 2012 platform as part of the section on education:

Knowledge-Based Education – We oppose the teaching of Higher Order Thinking Skills (HOTS) (values clarification), critical thinking skills and similar programs that are simply a relabeling of Outcome-Based Education (OBE) (mastery learning) which focus on behavior modification and have the purpose of challenging the student’s fixed beliefs and undermining parental authority.

It opposes, among other things, early childhood education, sex education, and multicultural education, but supports “school subjects with emphasis on the Judeo-Christian principles upon which America was founded.”

Sorry, I thought we were debating the demonstrated behavior in this thread between Comrade Crapski and KC Native. You injected yourself into the discussion between Comrade and I by defending KC Native calling others stupid for their opinions. I didn't realize the subject changed to be about you. You and I don't politically agree on much, but I don't remember you getting personal with me because of my opinions.
