    Very interesting video about how Government-run Schooling contributed to the rise of Socialism, Imperialism and eventually Fascism in Germany between the 1890s and 1940s.

    Some comments from the video's producer...

    In my 10+ years of teaching, "school sucks" is perhaps the most common phrase I've heard students use to describe their feelings about public education. But this seemingly bitter and reductive slogan is actually quite clever. When taken literally, "school sucks" is perhaps the most accurate and astute synopsis of the system I've ever heard. Here's why...

    1. The twelve-year process of an American public education has a dramatic effect on the mind of a child. When we first enter school at age six, many of our best personal attributes are already in place. We are curious, innovative, unique, creative and hopeful in ways that we will rarely be able to replicate throughout the rest of our lives. But over time, school sucks those essential attributes out of too many of us...and replaces them with predictability, obedience and apathy...

    Now you know why home schooling has become so popular and why the left is waging its own little war on home schooling. Bill Maher, the voice and face of the DNC calls it Christian Madrassas.

    Bill Maher is a mindless sheep. His angry wit & sarcasm has gotten him very far in Dumbed-Down America, but he is far from being an intelligent & informed American.

    Did you really watch the video? If not, you really should. The similarities are truly eery. Check it out.

    School does suck, but the alternative sucks a hell of a lot worse.

    This video is fascinating. It shows you where we got our current Government-run School System model from. It's very fascinating, but also very disturbing.
