Or, why they can’t see even when history reveals the consequences.



1.The government school system has been an utter failure, that is if one believes their mission is education. Hence, the victims, the graduates of said institutions, are oblivious of recent history, and hardly notice our slipping, being pushed, into the abyss of the Soviet experiment.

2. The advantage that Marx had was knowing what to promise, based on the human desire to have more, earned or not. Marx’s local franchise, Democrat Party, has not only encouraged the lower characteristics of greed, jealousy, and envy…..it has parlayed those into political power. And even rewarded those who acted criminally on the traits: Democrat DAs, judges and prosecutors released all of the rioters and arsonists that the police arrested.



3. “Since the end of the Second World War, however, a new ‘ethic’ has come into being, according to which the envious man is perfectly acceptable. Progressively fewer individuals and groups are ashamed of their envy, but instead make out that its existence in their temperaments axiomatically proves the existence of ‘social injustice,’ which must be eliminated for their benefit.”
Helmut Schoeck, “Envy: A Theory of Social Behavior,” p. 179

Envy is one of those human characteristics which should be held in check. But when 'democracy' looks the other way, and accepts it, it becomes the basis for the disintegration of a society.





4. Just last week we saw envy put into action:

"Extreme squatters knocking on doors to demand wealthy Seattle residents give them their homes"
Extreme squatters knocking on doors to demand wealthy Seattle residents give them their homes

Members of a group identifying itself as “Moorish Sovereign Citizens” are demanding that wealthy residents near Seattle turn over their homes to them
www.bizpacreview.com


And why not, after all it is the unspoken promise by the Democrats/Liberals.




5. Certainly the ersatz Bolsheviks, the Democrat Party, can find an argument for displacing those who have homes far larger than is necessary for their small families, and, in the name of ‘social justice,’ be moved to habitation more …legitimate… for the size of their families.

It’s only fair. And doesn’t the Constitution allow exactly that?
“Eminent domain in the United States refers to the power of a state or the federal government to take private property for public use while requiring "just" compensation to be given to the original owner.” Eminent domain in the United States - Wikipedia




Absurd you say?

Didn’t you say exactly that a few years back when some nuts said men could change into women? Now you vote for it.
The following post will reveal the results of the Democrat toying with human aspirations.

And, about that 'worker's paradise' that Democrat voters can't wait to achieve....

We have begin to see Democrat constituents, BLM, ANTIFA use the violence inseparable from communism, now demand the homes that they desire. And why not….the Democrats/Liberals find all sorts of ways to reward their constituents…..with the property of others.

It has all happened before, but government schoolies have been kept oblivious.


Here is your future under Democrat governance:



6. "Communal apartments, where strangers lived as one big family, shaped many generations of Soviet and Russian citizens, and continue to exist even today.
Communal apartments are a unique Russian phenomenon. They first appeared after the revolution in 1917, when residential real estate became public property.

The authorities began to divide up the apartments of wealthy citizens into smaller units in order to solve the chronic housing shortage …. many peasants were also forced to seek shelter in cities in order to survive as collectivization robbed them of a livelihood. Securing a job at a factory or institution meant that they could get a room in a communal apartment.



An adult was eligible for about 10 square meters, and a child was eligible for five (these regulations changed later). The peasants of yesterday were the new neighbors of the pre-revolutionary intelligentsia; kitchen staff started sharing bathrooms with university professors. This lifestyle may not have been easy, but it adhered to the official ideology of Communal apartments .... residential real estate became public property. The authorities began to divide up the apartments of wealthy citizens into smaller units in order to solve the chronic housing shortage brought on by the country’s rapid industrialization, which attracted many people to big cities.


This description still holds true for many surviving kommunalki today, in which little appears to have changed in the last 30 or 40 years.

According to official data cited by Ilya Utekhin in Sketches of Communal Living, even as late as 2001, communal apartments comprised 35-38 percent of housing in central St. Petersburg and over 10 percent of the city’s total housing stock. Even today, the city has more communal apartments than any other city in Russia and it is not unusual to meet somebody who lives in akommunalka.
In it together: How communal apartments shaped the outlook of generations




And it’s on the way here: ANTIFA and BLM are really your Democrat masters in disguise….and you put them in power.

It's too late for you Democrat voters to deny you were told what will happen.

7. “Black Lives Matter crowd demands Seattle homeowners 'give up' property: 'We coming for it'
'Economic justice for black people.... needs to look like land transfer in my opinion because land is wealth.' Black Lives Matter crowd demands Seattle homeowners ‘give up’ property: ‘We coming for it’

And they are, because you put Democrats in charge.


"In St. Petersburg, when the apartments of the bourgeoisie were divided were divided for the workers, sometimes a door was left. Was a time the wet nurse's room and the nursery. Now for three, four, five families. A door in an old wall. If you had such a door, into your neighbor's apartment, you kept it a secret. A bookcase in front of it. Yes. A way to get out. When they come for you. "
From the novel "Skinner," Charlie Huston, p. 197.



Democrats are those folks who see the ‘wet paint’ sign…..but need to touch it.

Unfortunately, they’re gonna get that paint on the rest of us.

I don't disagree with your schooling question/statement, but, two things come to mind immediately- Republicans went to the same schools and Republican observations of History are pretty low on the list of priorities for study, even in passing-

"Republicans went to the same schools"

Really glad you bring that up, because it provides the opportunity to state this largely ignored fact: education means nothing if it is not on top of the correct morality.



Let's prove that:


Here is a lesson from history that may mitigate their view...



"No country in Europe, except Britain, had a better education system than Germany at the onset of the Hitler era." Lance Morrow, "Evil: An Investigation," p. 123

What does that tell you about the relationship between education and evil?



How about this:

1. More details are emerging about Humam al-Balawi, the man who blew up seven intelligence agents in Afghanistan. By education and professional status, the Jordanian doctor is typical of recent suicidal attackers. The man accused of trying to blow up a plane on Christmas Day is a Nigerian graduate of the University of London. In the Fort Hood shootings, a Palestinian-American psychiatrist in the U.S. Army has been charged.
Humam al-Balawi was said to be carrying information about Ayman al-Zawahiri, Osama bin Laden's number two, himself a surgeon who was born to a prominent Egyptian family.
Mohamed Atta of 9/11, who was an Egyptian urban planner who had been working in Germany - these are not the wretched of the earth. What essentially is the grievance that draws them to al-Qaida?
Groups Recruiting Well-Educated Terrorists : NPR

2. A recent study at Princeton University by Alan Krueger and Jitka Maleckova, called "Education, Poverty, Political Violence and Terrorism: Is There a Causal Connection?" argues this point. One piece of the Krueger-Maleckova evidence involves 129 members of Hezbollah who died in action, mostly against Israel, from 1982 to 1994. Hezbollah is now designated by the U.S. as a terrorist organization. Biographical information from the Hezbollah newspaper al-Ahd indicates that the fighters who died were, on average, more educated and less impoverished than the Lebanese population of comparable age and regional origin….Moreover, the Palestinians' adherence to the view that the mass murder of civilians was not terrorism was independent of education and higher among those working than unemployed. Hence, support for terrorism was not reduced by increases in education and income….a study by Charles Russell and Bowman Miller (reprinted in the 1983 book Perspectives on Terrorism) considered 18 revolutionary groups, including the Japanese Red Army, Germany's Baader-Meinhof Gang, and Italy's Red Brigades. The authors found that "the vast majority of those individuals involved in terrorist activities as cadres or leaders is quite well-educated. In fact, approximately two-thirds of those identified terrorists are persons with some university training, [and] well over two-thirds of these individuals came from the middle or upper classes in their respective nations or areas."

3. …men who belonged to violent Islamist groups active over the past few decades (some in jail, some not). Had those groups reflected the working-age populations of their countries, engineers would have made up about 3.5 percent of the membership. Instead, nearly 20 percent of the militants had engineering degrees. When Gambetta and Hertog looked at only the militants whose education was known for certain to have gone beyond high school, close to half (44 percent) had trained in engineering.

It is laughable when the right complains about the public school system and its indoctrination and socialization of students. The reality is any indoctrination has been from the right, not the left. No subject bears this out more than History in High School and Economics in college. Take Atlas Shrugged. In most business schools it is required reading. Is it because of the economic concepts it reveals? Is it because of the great literary value it provides? No, it is required reading because the Koch foundation donated millions of dollars to the business department. It is one of the poorest written books ever, has no economic or business significance, and simply perpetuates a myth of a fantasy world that only the most simple minded can believe.

Just to prove you a moron, let's check:



1. "Third-Grade Teacher Has Students Write ‘Get Well’ Cards To Cop Killer Mumia Abu-Jamal A third-grade teacher at a public school in New Jersey is under fire after she encouraged her students to write letters to notorious convicted cop killer Mumia Abu-Jamal, who recently fell ill in prison.

"School's Nation of Islam Handout Paints Founding Fathers as Racists
The teacher also told Sommer that her son was not supposed to take the Nation of Islam handout home. It was supposed to stay in the classroom. That bit of news caused her great alarm.
“The fact that students were cautioned against allowing their parents to see anything is deeply troubling,” West told me. “The only reasonable explanation is they don’t want parents to know what it is their children are learning.”

3. Under pressure from transgender activists, progressive politicians, teacher unions, and the education establishment, and despite parents’ opposition, America’s public schools are capitulating to ideologues and implementing the radical transgender agenda with full force.
...regardless of biological sex, .... Activists want every child, from kindergarten on, to learn that “sex” is something “assigned at birth” rather than a biological reality. They want children to think that individuals get to choose their own “gender identity” (not limited to male or female), and that everyone else must affirm that “gender identity” as true.


...nothing that parents (or teachers) can do to prevent the schools from imposing policies designed to indoctrinate children with gender ideology.

4. The National Education Association approved a new "business item" expressing support for abortion access during its annual conference in Houston.

"[T]he NEA will include an assertion of our defense of a person's right to control their own body, especially for women, youth, and sexually marginalized people," the resolution states. "The NEA vigorously opposes all attacks on the right to choose and stands on the fundamental right to abortion under Roe v. Wade."

The NEA is the largest teachers' union in the U.S. with more than 3 million members. It collected nearly $400 million from American educators in 2018, according to federal labor filings. The union is also one of the most politically active in the country, spending $70 million on politics and lobbying in 2017 and 2018. Nearly all of the union's political action committee spending went to Democrats during the midterm cycle, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.

6. NYC schools allow kids to go on #ClimateStrike
“TEN YEARS. We have ten years to save the planet,” Mayor Bill de Blasio cautioned in a tweet. “Today’s leaders are making decisions for our environment that our kids will have to live with. New York City stands with our young people. They’re our conscience. We support the 9/20 #ClimateStrike.”

Legions of adolescent activists across the globe are expected to demand immediate action to combat climate change in advance of a major UN conference on the issue next week.

As long as mom and dad sanction their principled truancy, absent kids won’t have attendance records dinged, the DOE said.

The September 20th event will feature Sweden’s “Climate Crisis” sweetheart, 16-year old Greta Thunberg.

Teen activist and Swedish sensation Greta Thunberg, who recently docked her zero-emissions sailboat in New York, will speak at the event which will snake its way through lower Manhattan to Battery Park.

Kids with parental permission to attend will be granted excused absences from school, Education Department officials tweeted Thursday.

The infamous “Green New Deal” will be promoted as well.

The New York City climate strike is backed by more than 100 environmental and political activist groups and other institutions, including New York Communities for Change, The New School and the Sierra Club.

The protesters’ demands include a “Green New Deal” that would end fossil fuel extraction and move the nation onto entirely renewable energy sources by 2030. Green New Deal policies have been backed by the likes of U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders.

Personally, if I were one of the kids, I might argue about going to school at all. After all, if the Earth only has 10 more years before we are going to die, wouldn’t it be better to spend the time having fun or spending quality time with family?

On the other hand, if the New York City school officials were really invested in solving the climate crisis, wouldn’t they emphasize science and math? Perhaps keeping the kids in school and having them conduct experiments or perform calculations would inspire an interest in real climate science.

One theory that seems to prove true and is certainly consistent with what is happening with the New York City schools: When global problems are emphasized by locals, serious local matters are being ignored.

Case in point: New York state test results for third- through eighth-grade public school students are out, and the results are underwhelming.

Statewide, more than half the kids flunked yet again: Just 45.4% were deemed proficient in reading and 46.7% in math. In the city, 47.4% passed the reading test, while 45.6% got by in math.

Think the problem’s skimpy funding? Sorry: In 2017, the Empire Center’s E.J. McMahon reported in May, New York shelled out 89% more per kid than the national average. And that gap has been growing fast: In 1997, per-pupil outlays here were just 45% above average.

…In the city Thursday, Mayor Bill de Blasio and Schools Chancellor Richard Carranza tried to spin the results positively. The pass rate in English, they noted, is up 0.7 percentage points — and three whole points in math.

“Growth counts for something,” Carranza insisted.

Huh? That paltry uptick is what they’re proud of? Even though more than half the kids bombed? Please.

Notably, kids in the one category of public schools de Blasio and Carranza (and their union pals) don’t run — i.e., the charters — beat their counterparts in the regular schools by more than 10 percentage points in both English and math.

At least the kids won’t be flying private jets to attend the event. That makes them substantially less hypocritical than the celebrities who will be indoctrinating them during the Manhattan event.

19. "Pitt introduces initiative for 'justice teaching' in public schools
The new PittEd Justice Collective pushes “justice teaching” and anti-racist initiatives in schools at all levels.

  • One of the efforts sponsored by the collective aims to "create and sustain a pipeline of justice-minded activists."

Faculty at the University of Pittsburgh’s School of Education recently put together a three-year working group called the PittEd Justice Collective. This group was created on June 1 in response to “the loss of Black lives through police brutality and other forms of institutional injustice" with a stated purpose to “situate equity and justice across all levels of our school's operations, culture, climate, and academic engagements.”

The group aims to collaborate with "school districts on justice teaching, with an explicit focus on pedagogies, practices, and assessments" and establish a "Youth-for-Justice Dean’s Advisory Committee."

20."New Jersey high schooler says teacher ordered him to take down Trump banner at home before virtual class



...a teacher ordered him to take down a Donald Trump banner hanging behind him in his home during a virtual class last week, according to local reports.



“He said, 'Anthony take the sign down right now' and I looked up, seeing class hasn't started yet,” the teen told NBC New York. “I was on my phone. I looked up at him and kind of just looked back down like I didn't hear him.”



But the teacher repeated the request and said Ribeiro would have to leave if he refused."

22. “Educators are overwhelmingly progressive on social justice issues. This summer the EdWeek Research Center found that 81% of the nation’s teachers, principals and district leaders support the Black Lives Matter movement, compared to 67% of the general population as surveyed separately by the Pew Research Center. The American Federation of Teachers, the nation’s second-largest teachers’ labor union, was among the numerous professional educator organizations that issued a statement in support of Black Lives Matter in response to “the crisis of anti-Blackness.

The National Education Association, the nation’s largest labor union, has posted an entire page of BLM teaching resources, while Black Lives Matter is also disseminating educational materials.” Post-George Floyd, a Wave of 'Anti-Racist' Teaching Sweeps K-12 Schools Targeting 'Whiteness' | RealClearInvestigations

If you study history, the roots of the Democrat Party become clear……as does the their final plan for society. Been there, done that…..it was the 20th century.

Sorry you missed it.




8. Every Leftist is, essentially, a Marxist…even though most eschew the title since the fall of the Soviet Union. Even so, Left-wing ideas are predicated on Marx’s materialist view. Philosophically, the term implies that only material things are real, hence, the only way to judge equality is via material possessions.



The Left’s concept of materialism broadens into the overarching desire to see every individual materially equal. The Left is less interested in creating wealth than in distributing it, and has been far more interested in fighting material inequality than tyranny, which is why Lenin, Mao, Pol Pot, Ho Chi Minh, Castro, etc., tend to have the support of Leftists around the world.

End social and economic inequality and one will have Utopia! Sadly, attempts toward creation of utopia in this world lead to dystopia. Which leads to this comparison: conservatives marvel at how good America is, Leftists want to ‘transform’ it. “ Prager, ”Still The Best Hope”

i agree economic inequality will happen in every nation. Some people are better at business than others. As for redstributing wealth high taxation makes it more difficult to start new business and makes it harder to find investors. Bibi understands that that is why he made economic reforms such as lower taxes fewer regulations on firms.

It is laughable when the right complains about the public school system and its indoctrination and socialization of students.
I'm not laughing- Atlas Shrugged, in economics, is about Austrian economics, which is way more effective in wealth production through market influence than man dictated control- indoctrination takes many forms- all that is required is giving answers and not teaching how to find answers- oh, I'm not on the right either- I don't subscribe to the left/right paradigm- socilaization is everyone is equal except the more equal- the more equal being the parroted democratically elected, even in a republican form of governance stupid people call us a democracy, having learned at the trough of Public Education which guarantees conformity from age 6 on to age 18- the most important formative years and individual has-

What's "laughable" is one side feeling it is better than the other side when either side is merely a different rate of descent to the same destination- IMproper education, from and by both sides ensure and insure that particular flaw- and yes, it is a flaw- NO passing on of knowledge is accurate, or complete, without a foundation of Truth- Truth is constant and knowledge evolves- though many feel (believe) it (knowledge) to be stagnant- it ain't-

Another laughable moment is when the question, where in the constitution is authority granted for gov't edict/mandate on education come from? I can't find that power/authority "grant"- and I've read the constitution a lot- and I have great reading comprehension- oh, btw, my formal education stopped at age 16, 56 years ago- I am one of the fortunate, I suppose, since my indoctrination stopped early, but what little formal education I obtained was in a rural setting in west Texas and it takes a while for shit to roll down hill-

I also have an inquisitive nature which I exploit, to, of all things, learn! Imagine that, I actually want my knowledge to evolve-

Bibi is a congress critter? I had no idea- thanks for clearing that up- I knew his *people* contribute heavily to BOTH sides- I just never understood why- now, thanks to the erudite understanding put forth I grasp his relevance

Or, why they can’t see even when history reveals the consequences.



1.The government school system has been an utter failure, that is if one believes their mission is education. Hence, the victims, the graduates of said institutions, are oblivious of recent history, and hardly notice our slipping, being pushed, into the abyss of the Soviet experiment.

2. The advantage that Marx had was knowing what to promise, based on the human desire to have more, earned or not. Marx’s local franchise, Democrat Party, has not only encouraged the lower characteristics of greed, jealousy, and envy…..it has parlayed those into political power. And even rewarded those who acted criminally on the traits: Democrat DAs, judges and prosecutors released all of the rioters and arsonists that the police arrested.



3. “Since the end of the Second World War, however, a new ‘ethic’ has come into being, according to which the envious man is perfectly acceptable. Progressively fewer individuals and groups are ashamed of their envy, but instead make out that its existence in their temperaments axiomatically proves the existence of ‘social injustice,’ which must be eliminated for their benefit.”
Helmut Schoeck, “Envy: A Theory of Social Behavior,” p. 179

Envy is one of those human characteristics which should be held in check. But when 'democracy' looks the other way, and accepts it, it becomes the basis for the disintegration of a society.





4. Just last week we saw envy put into action:

Extreme squatters knocking on doors to demand wealthy Seattle residents give them their homes

Members of a group identifying itself as “Moorish Sovereign Citizens” are demanding that wealthy residents near Seattle turn over their homes to them

And why not, after all it is the unspoken promise by the Democrats/Liberals.





5. Certainly the ersatz Bolsheviks, the Democrat Party, can find an argument for displacing those who have homes far larger than is necessary for their small families, and, in the name of ‘social justice,’ be moved to habitation more …legitimate… for the size of their families.

It’s only fair. And doesn’t the Constitution allow exactly that?

Absurd you say?


Didn’t you say exactly that a few years back when some nuts said men could change into women? Now you vote for it.
The following post will reveal the results of the Democrat toying with human aspirations.

And, about that 'worker's paradise' that Democrat voters can't wait to achieve....
Yet, the whiner Right Wing has no fine Capital solutions. Lazy slackers.

That's not what I see- what I see is they just want their guy managing their lives- 6 to 1 half dozen to the other- same destination, different rate of descent-

So you admitted that you homskoolrs were only better than public school kids. You must be so proud.

So, was it hard keeping the word "Nazi" out of a post about the Dems? Were you sweating badly?
