    The brilliant and, to date, successful strategy of the left, to control the academy and produce the shock troops of the future, marches on.

    The latest chapter involves the teaching of the history of unions. To many of us, unions are important, but, then, so is the elevator and we don't teach its history.

    No, the real reason for the new curriculum is to indoctrinate in the successes of socialism.

    According to one report, the curriculum contains the following statement: "free market competition, an outdated nostrum."

    Check it out:

    "That could soon change in Wisconsin, if Democratic Governor Jim Doyle signs a bill requiring the state's Superintendent of Public Instruction to include the history of organized labor and the collective bargaining process in state social studies standards. Teachers draw on those standards as they prepare students for standardized tests.

    Doyle has said he will sign the law. The measure passed the Wisconsin Senate on October 27, supported by all Democrats and three Republicans; it had already passed the state's assembly.

    While the law does not mandate that labor history be taught in schools, its presence in state standards means some schools will likely teach the subject, and that the state will provide assistance to schools that do. "
    Labor Scores Long-Sought History Victory in Wisconsin Schools - Working In These Times


    Reasonable, I am sure to our friends on the left, but what would the feelings be if the following were inserted into curriculum:

    1. The History of the Successes of Capitalism

    2. Intelligent Design.

    3. The Grotesque History of Communism

    4. How McCarty Saved America.

    If we did teach The History of The Elevator, I'm sure you'd complain that it:

    1. Included too little information regarding how Elevators Helped Capitalism

    2. Included too much information regarding how Elevators Helped Labor Unions

    Well, that was a stupid comment. You might as well raise the same objections to teaching about the American War for independence or the Civil Rights movement. Why do you object to teaching the history of the struggle for workers' rights?
    So teaching the history of how we got OSHA, the 40-hour work week, disability insurance, sick leave, anti-child labour laws, workers' compensation, and safety standards is bad and con only signify the beginning of Evil Commie takeover of America?

    Are you always this stupid?

    And? Pure free markets gave us the robber barons and the feudal system, of the past. All first-world nations today have mixed economies and limit mark If you want them to prevent an anarcho-capitalist argument side-by-side with the current curriculem, fine. Then argue that case. As is, you're making a fool of yourself.et competition to prevent price gouging and the emergence of monopolies.
    Already covered in every American History class when they discuss the Civil War, the Guilded Age, and the rise of the trusts, monopolies, and modern economic system.

    So now you're comparing religion to the history of the labour unions? :cuckoo:

    If you find suitable material, fine. In the meantime, feel free to discuss how communist ideology was corrupted to support totalitarian dictatorships and oligarchies. While you're at it, compare thjse to Twin Oaks and other example of successful communist and socialist systems. We can call it Comparative Government and throw in monarchy, theocracy, and the feudal system

    And talk about his lies and the abuses of Nixon and other right-wingers

    You have managed to make what might have been a 'meaty' post into unintelligent babble.

    Please consider trying again, with one attack per post so that I may hand you the spanking that you so richly deserve.

    I find it truly ironic that a female would be so far to the right PC...

    When you consider that without the courage of the progressive movement and your hated 'left' you'd still be considered a second class citizen with no right to vote, choose your mate or raise your children as you see fit...

    You posted a thread on how precious your children are, but without the labor movement and unions fighting for workers' rights, you'd be sending the little ones off to work in a factory for pennies a day...and you would spend your day hoping they come home in one piece and pray they don't come home in a box...and they wouldn't be gone for 8 hour days or 40 hour weeks...

    You 'claim' the 'leftist' is naive to the realities of human nature...so tell me PC, are we to believe that workers' rights would have been accomplished by the generosity of corporations and industrialists?

    I wonder if these kids ever refused to do an assignment because it conflicted with their religious beliefs or they decided to sleep during class?

    The guy holding the iron pipe probably discouraged any discipline problems.
