How to Bring Down a Republic

They indoctrinate, rewrite and lie about history, mock and distort religious beliefs, and promote a single progressive agenda. They discourage self-control and encourage hedonism (since, after all, any “mistakes” can be “fixed” by Planned Parenthood). Their goal is to achieve a massive universal groupthink populace incapable of questioning the government, much less governing themselves. Continue reading

The Education of Our Children (According to Jefferson)

An enlightened citizenry is indispensable for the proper functioning of a republic. Self-government is not possible unless the citizens are educated sufficiently to enable them to exercise oversight. It is therefore imperative that the nation see to it that a suitable education be provided for all its citizens. (Thomas Jefferson) Continue reading

Moral Bankruptcy

There was a time when common sense and common decency counted for something. Educators felt a responsibility to equip students with solid skills that could take them anywhere they wanted to go in later life – enable them to become doctors, engineers or whatever they wanted to be. Too many of today’s “educators” see students as a captive audience for them to manipulate and propagandize. Continue reading

Allen West: Obama ‘Abjectly Despises’ Whites

“This is my clear and succinct message to white Americans. How long will it be before ‘you people’ realize you have elevated someone to the office of president who abjectly despises you – not to mention his henchman Holder. Combined they are the most vile and disgusting racists – not you,” Colonel West said. Continue reading

Frederick Douglass Foundation Condemns Installation of Common Core and the Nationalization of Education

The Frederick Douglass Foundation released this statement on Common Core education in 2013. We think it is worth revisiting as the American States begin to wake up, listen to their constituents, and push back against the nationalization of education in this country. Continue reading

Epic Fail: The Crisis in American Education

Our students’ epidemic failure in class, however, is only symptomatic of a much larger issue. It is academia’s approach to teaching and learning that has utterly failed in its responsibility to these children. Further, the politicizing of public education by self-styled experts and administrators alike is as much the cause as anything. Continue reading

Nathan Hale

It would seem that today’s educational system could use a little infusion of patriotism and more Nathan Hales. The American ideals of hard work and sacrifice have gone the way of God and Country. Our longstanding “common core” of Civic Duty, Vigilance, and Individual Excellence has been been abandoned for a model of intentional arrested development, designed to foster a national system of substandard measures, masquerading as equality. Continue reading

The Case Against Public Education

If public education is allowed to survive, all efforts to resuscitate the inert husk of modern civilization will fail. It is time to unravel the most wasteful and destructive entitlement program of all. Cancer cells do not divide into healthy cells. A corrupted, power-intoxicated political class will not willingly raise a freedom-loving, self-reliant populace. Governments must no longer be allowed to pre-determine their nations’ fates, by mass producing the populace that serves their interests. Continue reading

Against the Ghetto Plantation

If, by magic, Douglass could meet the inhabitants of the ghettos, what might he say to them? He would remind them that Knowledge is Power, and much more importantly, Knowledge is Freedom. He would encourage them to take practical steps — to master reading and writing by every means possible; to ask for help from educated people; to listen to educated speakers. And he will suggest that something old should be new again; reprint Webster’s blue-back speller and The Columbian Orator. Continue reading

Obama’s America

In short, America has been fractured into two nations: the tax producers and the tax consumers, the givers and the takers, those who generate wealth and those who exploit it. Mr. Obama has peeled off the larger chunk. The productive classes are being harnessed into subsidizing the nonproductive elements. Statism and sex trump entrepreneurship and self-reliance.

From Great Society to Hate Society: The Progressives and the Unbroken Chain of Political Bondage

The horrible unspoken truth is that entitlements ensured that this minority-voting bloc would forever remain loyal to the Democrats — by keeping them slaves to a system upon which they have become wholly dependent. Continue reading
