Columbus, The Indians, and Human Progress Arawak men and women, naked, tawny, and full of wonder, emerged from their villages onto the island's beaches and swam out to get a closer look at the strange big boat. When Columbus and his sailors came ashore, carrying swords, speaking oddly, the Arawaks ran to greet them, brought them food, water, gifts.
Part Two Socialist, Marxist and Communist Indoctrination School kids are being prepared for a socialist world government under the United Nationsto which most public school teachers would not object.
The kids are being taught that one culture is just as good as another. They are being taught that it isn't fair for the United States to be the world's only superpower. They are being taught that the U. Background, overview and recap articles: Many people have long suspected that governments sometimes attempt to indoctrinate their people to increase the government's own power and influence.
Unfortunately, ambitious governments will not stop at merely controlling what their people can do; they must control their minds. It is the comprehensive effort of passively disseminating a particular viewpoint.
The passive aspect is key. People who are indoctrinated with a certain narrative or ideology do not arrive at the intended conclusions through their own thinking, but hear the same thing repeated in a million different ways until they finally take it as unquestionable truth.
Because indoctrination happens in the absence of thinking, many teachers who engage in indoctrination do so unconsciously.
They themselves take what they're given and pass it along without thinking. Ideologues often intervene at this level by writing the scripts for teachers, which is how LGBT advocacy and anti-Semitic fabrications become included in their lessons.
Hard Times at Snowflake U. At some point, America's high schools, liberals arts colleges, and universities got taken over by Leftist radicals, who starting in the s had burrowed into the system as eternal graduate students and who gradually emerged, like parasites, to devour their hosts. The result has been increasingly politicized, feminized institutions that, in many cases, bear almost no resemblance to their original incarnations besides their names.
They've become an expensive parody of education, some costing into six figures per year, all in.
Obsessed with "social justice," they bristle with diversity administrators and other barnacles; teaching has become secondary to the schools' primary mission of ideological indoctrination; and the diploma has become simply a very expensive certificate of attendance, different from a mail-order diploma mill only in the prestige of the name on the piece of paper.
The situation in government schools is dire and getting direr every year. All parents, whatever their circumstance, must consider the danger government schools present to the souls of their children and even the soul of our country.
You can be sure that most of those teaching history to kids have been steeped deeply in Zinn. Hassan and Farnan point out that the National Network of State Teachers of the Year recommend a smelly book called the Social Justice Book List that lists the themes of "classism, racism, xenophobia, sexism, and transgenderism.
The University Is Ripe for Replacement. Beginning in early K and continuing to the highest levels of university education, Leftist indoctrination is the gravest dilemma that afflicts education in North America, rendering it perhaps the most powerful instrument of anti-Western bias and socialist propaganda of the modern era.
Here my concern is with the abandonment of genuine scholarship, fact-based historical research, familiarity with the "Great Books" and the development of critical thinking habits, particularly in the humanities and social sciences.
Education has been transformed into a grooming operation for social justice warriors, radical feminists, anti-white vigilantes and budding socialists.
Inan editorial in The New York Times declared that "what is truly vicious is not propaganda but a monopoly of it. Miller and reprinted in the fifth edition of Modern English Readings The Education Issues Page is a discussion of what's wrong with public education in America today, with an emphasis on the liberalism and political correctness involved in public education.
The quality of education is going down while the price keeps going up. The war was hardly over, it was February , the IWW leadership was in jail, but the IWW idea of the general strike became reality for five days in Seattle, Washington, when a walkout of , working people brought the city to a halt.
A substantial amount of the money used by Queen Isabella to finance the explorations of Columbus came from the seizure and sale of properties owned by Spanish Jews and Muslims.
On March 30, , she issued an edict demanding that Jews either convert to Catholicism, leave the country, or be executed. The New Deal was a series of programs, public work projects, financial reforms and regulations enacted by President Franklin D. Roosevelt in the United States between and It responded to needs for relief, reform and recovery from the Great lausannecongress2018.com federal programs included the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC), the Civil Works Administration (CWA), the Farm Security.
What I am about to say can apply to anyone and any group - and perhaps all of us, truly. For example: (not meanin to pick only on christians) If someone organizing to feed the homeless on the street - why? because people need food, or because to do so is to call attention to the failures of capitalism, or perhaps a recent new law caused more poverty, etc.
It is unlikely that 20 years ago, when Howard Zinn’s magnum opus A People’s History of the United States: Present was published, that anyone thought it would sell close to two million copies and spawn an entirely new historiography.
Today, though not quite a household name, spry octogenarian Zinn is a much in-demand lecturer, criss-crossing the country, speaking to crowded halls and.
