The Radical Transformation of America’s Classrooms… “Liberal education has been very successful in this country because nobody challenged the progressive educators and their agenda. We are waking up to the unraveling of our society caused by this liberal education and wondering, what happened. Could it be too late to reverse the damage?”

Liberal education has been very successful in this country because nobody challenged the progressive educators and their agenda. We are waking up to the unraveling of our society caused by this liberal education and wondering, what happened. Could it be too late to reverse the damage?
Conservative news outlets are pointing out the obvious—our children have been indoctrinated into socialism for 33-40 years and this indoctrination is finally bearing fruit.
We have bred a nation of young, entitled citizens who do not like to work, do not like to read or study anything too involved or complicated that exceeds Twitter’s 140 words, do not take responsibility for their actions, exhibit righteous indignation if their demands are not met, claim racism and hate speech if others disagree with them, and are afraid of their shadows.

Culture’s shifting sands on moral standards

Sixty years ago juvenile delinquency and what to do about it suddenly drew a round of national soul searching. We no longer even use the term. We think in terms of juvenile monsters.
Yesteryear’s hoods and troublemakers seem quaint and innocent beside today’s appalling school murders, gang rapes and teenage mayhem…
…Put together violent, porn-saturated electronic entertainment and armed, shame-free, unparented young men. Crazy things happen…
Prison Planet.com » America – and Western Civilization As a Whole – Was Founded On a Conspiracy Theory
America was founded on a conspiracy theory: that Britain’s King George was conspiring against the colonists by all his actions.
The Declaration of Independence recites a series of conspiracies:
When a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism … The history of the present King of Great Britain[and others working with and for him] is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

We may be seeing the beginning of the end of the model for civilized governance that has dominated Western civilization since WWII. That model has been provision by the state of all or most of the needs of its people combined with the popular election of the government. Or, in other words, the welfare state plus democracy……………
The End of the Future
From the Oct. 3, 2011, issue of NR.
When He opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, “Come and see.” So I looked, and behold, a black horse, and he who sat on it had a pair of scales in his hand. And I heard a voice in the midst of the four living creatures saying, “A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius; and do not harm the oil and the wine.” (Revelation 6:5–6)
Modern Western civilization stands on the twin plinths of science and technology. Taken together, these two interrelated domains reassure us that the 19th-century story of never-ending progress remains intact. Without them, the arguments that we are undergoing cultural decay — ranging from the collapse of art and literature after 1945 to the soft totalitarianism of political correctness in media and academia to the sordid worlds of reality television and popular entertainment — would gather far more force. Liberals often assert that science and technology remain essentially healthy; conservatives sometimes counter that these are false utopias; but the two sides of the culture wars silently agree that the accelerating development and application of the natural sciences continues apace.
Yet during the Great Recession, which began in 2008 and has no end in sight…………………

“Does that sound like the motto of a nice, peaceful, non-violent, secular organization? President Obama and his national intelligence director James Clapper think so.
But contrary to the perversely rosy assessment of America‘s top leadership, the Muslim Brotherhood – the shadowy, transnational Islamist parent organization of al-Qaida and Hamas – is committed not only to filling the growing leadership vacuum in the Arab world, but also, through its many proxies within the U.S, to impose the Quran and Shariah law right here in America.
If that sounds too fantastic or improbable to take seriously, you will harbor no such doubts after reading the March issue of Whistleblower, “KNOW THINE ENEMY: The Muslim Brotherhood’s secret plan to ‘destroy Western Civilization from within.’”

The Roots of Revolution
by Reginald Firehammer
In the opening article to this series, ” Marxist Revolution of the West ,” I explained that the revolution that has all but destroyed Western civilization, and is in its final stages in every aspect of Western society and culture, though explicitly planned and initiated by avowed Marxists, it was contributions of other individuals, movements, and institutions that made it possible for the revolution to be so spectacularly pulled off. The interrelationships between these various contributors to the revolution is very complex. There are six major threads of influence which I have identified and in terms of which all the complexity of that revolution can be explained.
Six Anti-Western Anti-civlizing Threads
The six threads are: 1. Cultural Marxism; 2. Post Modernism; 3. Psychology; 4. Sociology; 5. Education; and 6. Humanism.
Cultural Marxism is the movement initiated by the avowed Marxists, Antonio Gramsci, Georg Lukacs, Wilhelm Reich, Erich Fromm, Herbert Marcuse, Theodor Adorno, and Max Horkheimer and others of the Frankfurt School. These men made it clear in their writing, teaching, speeches, and lectures that a complete revolution of Western society and the eventual establishment of a one-world socialist order was and is their intention.
Post Modernism is a philosophy primarily epistemological (study of knowledge) which has its roots in the logical positivists of the Vienna Circle. Though many of the positivists were also socialists, there was never any overtly stated intention to foment revolution, though the results of their influence on society and culture has certainly resulted in one. Most important, the result of this philosophical movement produced the fertile anti-intellectual soil in which cultural Marxism has thrived.
Psychology is the pseudo-science which began with the conflation of physiology (a legitimate science) and philosophy of mind (a legitimate branch of philosophy) by Wilhelm Wundt in the early 1900s. By combining both “philosophical introspection” (subjectivity) and laboratory technique (objectivity), “psychology” provided the means to put over any wild speculation about the nature of human consciousness in the name of “science.” It was perfectly suited to the purposes of the cultural Marxists, two of whom, Wilhelm Reich and Erich Fromm, were influential “psychologists” whose marxist ideas have, through the medium of psychology, infiltrated every aspect of Western culture and thought.
Sociology is another pseudo-science, the invention of Auguste Compte (1798-1857) which he called the greatest of sciences that would subsume all others (which in a very real sense it has—think environmentalism and the subordination of science to political agendas). Sociology is “dressed-up” collectivism; it’s fundamental premise is that society is the ultimate end or purpose of values and actions and that individuals are subordinate to and derive their values and purpose from their relationship to or membership in society. Compte coined the word altruism to refer to the moral obligation of individuals to serve others and place the interests of society above their own. He is the father of positivism, which he regarded as “human religion”; both the logical positivists (Vienna Circle) and Secular Humanism have their origins in Compte. If Sociology is a science, its application is “social engineering.”
Education is a social-engineering method of implementing control, based on “principles” derived from sociology and psychology. The educational system that dominates America, and virtually all the West had its origins in Prussia, the brain-child of the collectivist philosopher, Johann Gottlieb Fichte, who said, “The schools must fashion the person, and fashion him in such a way that he simply cannot will otherwise than what you wish him to will.”
