Top 10 Reasons Kids Are Failing

"They say kids are more depressed now than in the Great Depression"

As parents, we have to step up for our kids, as no one else will, the system that enslaves them was designed to fail them in every way. We have had many rights movements, now it is time for the Children’s Rights movement! Children are the easiest age group to control, it’s time we set them free! It seems human civilization has always been about a small minority of powerful people controlling the large majority of the population because all 10 of the following reasons have one goal, Population Control. It can be difficult to grasp escaping this system of control when all 10 of these reasons are in play especially since they support the complete destruction of the family. This is the reason so many children are committing suicide or graduating at the top of their class completely lost on what to do with their lives, like this Valedictorian, because they did what others wanted them to do instead of finding and pursuing their passions in life. Unfortunately kids have to live with the fact adults are ultimately going to make most all of their important decisions for them until they’re 18+. Humans are either slaves to human nature or masters of human nature.

“The world today has 6.8 billion people. That’s heading up to about nine billion. Now if we do a really great job on new vaccines, health care & reproductive health services, we could LOWER that by perhaps 10 or 15 percent.” ~ Bill Gates [Click here to watch video at bottom of post]

"A total population of 250-300 million people, a 95% decline from present levels, would be ideal." ~ Ted Turner

“Population control should be the prime task of every government.” ~ Dr. Lee DuBridge [President Nixon’s Chief Science Advisor]

"You cannot control your own population by force, but it can be distracted by consumption." ~ Noam Chomsky

“The negative impact of population growth on all of our planetary ecosystems is becoming appallingly evident.” ~ David Rockefeller

“Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature.” ~ [The first of the “new 10 commandments” on the Georgia Guidestones]

"You don’t have to burn books to destroy a culture. Just get people to stop reading them." ~ Ray Bradbury

The complete destruction of the family & their cultural heritage is the end goal of the ‘powers that be’ who have long been controlling and destroying cultures around the world to achieve this purpose:

Here’s the real purpose behind the following 10 reasons:

  1. Steal our Time (mental slavery, make us dependent on the school system)
  2. Steal our Immunity (make us dependent on the medical industry)
  3. Steal our Water (and poison it, then make us dependent on companies like Nestle and The Wonderful Company which isn’t so wonderful after all)
  4. Steal our Land (see video below, make us dependent on industry)
  5. Steal our Minds (make us dependent on drugs)
  6. Steal our Critical Thinking (heavy metals dumb people down)
  7. Steal our Health (make us dependent on the sickness business with drugs and surgery, cures are illegal)
  8. Steal our Sense of Direction (make us dependent on our parents and/or society)
  9. Steal our Natural Environment (make us dependent on artificial environments)
  10. Steal our Creativity (make us dependent on consuming instead of creating)

“There is all the difference in the world between treating people equally and attempting to make them equal. While the first is the condition of a free society, the second means as De Tocqueville describes it, a new form of servitude.” ~ Friedrich Hayek, [Individualism and Economic Order]

“Just look at us. Everything is backwards, everything is upside down. Doctors destroy health, lawyers destroy justice, psychiatrists destroy minds, scientists destroy truth, major media destroys information, religions destroy spirituality and governments destroy freedom.” ~ Michael Ellner

"It’s no measure of health, to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society." ~ Jiddu Krishnamurti

“Remember that failure is an event, not a person.” ~ Zig Ziglar

TOP 10 REASONS KIDS ARE FAILING
1) Schooling | Often times our own lives can be textbook examples of why schooling is such a failure. Schools CRUSH individuality and creativity while breeding conformity in every sense and as much as schools control kids lives, they have ever dominating control over how parents live as well since lives and schedules revolve around a school schedule. Almost as if parents never stop being schooled. Life is short, why spend half your life schooling yourself and your kids. Is schooling more important than living or actually experiencing the real world? Which is why you may not be surprised the following 9 things on this list are all forced on kids in schools because schools are the definition of insanity, they instill all of the ingredients for failure.

Schools are the real villains of childhood. The whole Child labour movement is merely a distraction from the fact that schools are child labour which is the exploitation of children through any form of work that deprives children of their childhood and is mentally, physically, socially or morally harmful. Instead of kids being allowed to follow their passions, they are forced to play the game of school.

School = Conformity (herd mentality - the tendency for individuals to follow the sentiment of the majority)

Unschooling = Freedom = Individuality

"If children are being told WHAT to learn, WHEN and HOW to learn, 6 hours a day, 5 DAYS A WEEK - no wonder CREATIVE THINKING in children is plummeting, and ANXIETY & DEPRESSION is continuing to rise." ~ Kirsty Lee

“We must demolish the institution of schooling because it impedes learning and enslaves children. Then we need to put both money and creativity into creating opportunities and infrastructures that respect children and help them learn.” ~ Wendy Priesnitz

“Schooling is a manufacturing process whereby the raw material called curious boys is turned into products called obedient men.” ~ Mokokoma Mokhonoana

3) Tap Water | Schools don’t even care enough about kids to provide a basic necessity like clean water. With a laundry list of toxic chemicals laced in the tap water, there are so many neurotoxins designed to dumb down the population including fluoride which Hitler used to dumb down the population. If you’re interested in knowing just how bad your local tap water is, I recommend visiting the EWG’s Tap Water Database. You’ll likely notice a toxic concoction of ingredients that are added to the water that literally says they cause cancer. It’s no wonder kids are getting cancer today in record numbers, here is 10 reasons why.

4) Processed Food & GMO’s | Fake foods created in labs that have been tested on rats that died of all kinds of diseases, unfortunately, it’s in practically everything unless you buy 100% organic foods. Most all school food is far from organic, it’s not only GMO, it’s also complete junk food. Junk food is intended to get kids addicted bringing the worst out in them. Much of the junk food today contains neurotoxins that actually kill the brain and dumb it down which is why this is the only option at most all schools in the USA. If health is our greatest wealth, schools are failing to influence kids with healthy habits, they do the opposite. That’s why they have soda machines instead of student run juice bars or lemonade stands.

"The food you eat can be either the safest and most powerful form of medicine, or the slowest form of poison.” ~ Dr. Ann Wigmore N.D.

5) Prescription & Non-Prescription Drugs

6) Heavy Metals | Heavy metals are found in practically every product, including produce. Most China made products are extremely high in heavy metals.

7) Toxic Products | Toxic cookware such as non-stick cookware, microwaves, nonorganic personal care products such as sunscreen, fluoride toothpaste, cleaning products, laundry products and so many more. Many of us are surrounded by toxic products that we use everyday.

8) Helicopter Parents | They don’t give their kids the freedom to explore and discover things on their own. Generational demographer, Neil Howe, describes helicopter parenting as the parenting style of Baby Boomer parents of Millennial children. Since history often repeats itself, we may be heading towards another Lost Generation that is “disoriented (make someone lose their sense of direction), wandering, directionless” These are the type of parents that would give their kids meds because they are hyperactive. There also the parents that give their kids training wheels for life, handicapping their opportunities to truly learn. Training wheels don’t help kids learn how to ride a bike, they hinder it which is why kids can go from a balance bike to a pedal bike because the balance bike naturally teaches them how to ride a pedal bike. This is merely an example of how helicopter parents raise their kids. Helicopter parenting induces learned helplessness in kids.

"Don’t handicap your children by making their lives easy." ~ Robert A. Heinlein

9) Poor Environment | Since kids are always learning, a negative home and/or school environment can be detrimental to their growth. School itself is a negative environment for learning. It’s unfortunate that some kids find school as an escape from a poor home environment while other kids find home an escape from a poor school environment. Kids should have lots of time to discover and explore nature through hiking, camping, rock and tree climbing, and swimming and jumping in natural bodies of water. Nature Deficiency is an epidemic for children today because they’re not only locked away from the real world, but the natural world as well. Most children are under so much pressure today that they come home from school only to have to do more school or organized sports keeping them completely disconnected from their natural environment.

“Unlike television, nature does not steal time; it amplifies it. Nature offers healing for a child living in a destructive family or neighborhood.” ~ Richard Louv, [Last Child in the Woods: Saving Our Children from Nature-Deficit Disorder]

10) Technology | (TV, Electromagnetic poisoning from WIFI, Cell Phones, Smart Meters, and 5G) TV programming indoctrinates kids. There is an older documentary called Class Dismissed which you can see here (Part 1 & Part 2) Watching TV teaches kids to consume rather than create. Tech is great when kids learn to balance technology and nature and we’re pretty much at the point where we can’t really have one without the other. When we journey in nature, we most likely use technology to get us there such as a car, phone, computer, airplane, train, etc. However, in doing so, we become dependent on technology because “if you use your phone or GPS to tell how to get somewhere, your brain will not remember the way next time - but if you use the map and plot out your own route, you will retain the information.” which is why map reading (orienteering) is becoming more and more popular especially for kids developing brains. It’s important that kids aren’t consumed by technology, but use it to their advantage.

"Television and school – they do exactly the same thing in slightly different ways - even the wonderful stuff…both being abstractions retard the capacity for that critical examination." ~ John Taylor Gatto, [Everything We Think About Schooling Is Wrong!, Page 13]

“There’s no denying the benefits of the Internet. But electronic immersion, without a force to balance it, creates the hole in the boat — draining our ability to pay attention, to think clearly, to be productive and creative.” ~ Richard Louv, [The Nature Principle: Human Restoration and the End of Nature-Deficit Disorder]

“Why do so many Americans say they want their children to watch less TV, yet continue to expand the opportunities for them to watch it? More important, why do so many people no longer consider the physical world worth watching? The highway’s edges may not be postcard perfect. But for a century, children’s early understanding of how cities and nature fit together was gained from the backseat: the empty farmhouse at the edge of the subdivision; the variety of architecture, here and there; the woods and fields and water beyond the seamy edges–all that was and still is available to the eye. This was the landscape that we watched as children. It was our drive-by movie.” ~ Richard Louv

“On the other hand, it has a number of other advantages for power. For one thing, it diverts people, it atomizes people. When you’re sitting in front of your tube, you’re alone. I mean, there’s something about human beings that just makes face-to-face contact very different from banging around on a computer terminal and getting some noise coming back―that’s very impersonal, and it breaks down human relations. Well, that’s obviously a good result from the point of view of people with power―because it’s extremely important to drive human sentiments out of people if you just want them to be passive and obedient and under control. So if you can eliminate things like face-to-face contact and direct interaction, and just turn people into what’s caricatured as kind of an M.I.T. nerd―you know, somebody who’s got antennae coming out of his head, and is wired into his computer all the time―that’s a real advantage, because then you’ve made them more inhuman, and therefore more controllable.” ~ Noam Chomsky, [Understanding Power: The Indispensable Chomsky]

"Mike Teavee…"
Oompa-Loompa Song from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl
“The most important thing we’ve learned,
So far as children are concerned,
Is never, NEVER, NEVER let
Them near your television set–
Or better still, just don’t install
The idiotic thing at all.
In almost every house we’ve been,
We’ve watched them gaping at the screen.
They loll and slop and lounge about,
And stare until their eyes pop out.
(Last week in someone’s place we saw
A dozen eyeballs on the floor.)
They sit and stare and stare and sit
Until they’re hypnotized by it,
Until they’re absolutely drunk
With all the shocking ghastly junk.
Oh yes, we know it keeps them still,
They don’t climb out the window sill,
They never fight or kick or punch,
They leave you free to cook the lunch
And wash the dishes in the sink–
But did you ever stop to think,
To wonder just exactly what
This does to your beloved tot?
IT ROTS THE SENSES IN THE HEAD!
IT KILLS IMAGINATION DEAD!
IT CLOGS AND CLUTTERS UP THE MIND!
IT MAKES A CHILD SO DULL AND BLIND
HE CAN NO LONGER UNDERSTAND
A FANTASY, A FAIRYLAND!
HIS BRAIN BECOMES AS SOFT AS CHEESE!
HIS POWERS OF THINKING RUST AND FREEZE!
HE CANNOT THINK–HE ONLY SEES!
‘All right!’ you’ll cry. ‘All right!’ you’ll say,
‘But if we take the set away,
What shall we do to entertain
Our darling children? Please explain!’
We’ll answer this by asking you,
‘What used the darling ones to do?
‘How used they keep themselves contented
Before this monster was invented?’
Have you forgotten? Don’t you know?
We’ll say it very loud and slow:
THEY…USED…TO…READ! They’d READ and READ,
AND READ and READ, and then proceed
To READ some more. Great Scott! Gadzooks!
One half their lives was reading books!
The nursery shelves held books galore!
Books cluttered up the nursery floor!
And in the bedroom, by the bed,
More books were waiting to be read!
Such wondrous, fine, fantastic takes
Of dragons, gypsies, queens, and whales
And treasure isles, and distant shores
Where smugglers rowed with muffled oars,
And pirates wearing purple pants,
And sailing ships and elephants,
And cannibals crouching ’round the pot,
Stirring away at something hot.
(It smells so good, what can it be?
Good gracious, it’s Penelope.)
The younger ones had Beatrix Potter
With Mr. Tod, the dirty rotter,
And Squirrel Nutkin, Pigling Bland,
And Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle and–
Just How The Camel Got His Hump,
And How The Monkey Lost His Rump,
And Mr. Toad, and bless my soul,
There’s Mr. Rat and Mr. Mole–
Oh, books, what books they used to know,
Those children living long ago!
So please, oh please , we beg, we pray,
Go throw your TV set away,
And in its place you can install
A lovely bookshelf on the wall.
Then fill the shelves with lots of books,
Ignoring all the dirty looks,
The screams and yells, the bites and kicks,
And children hitting you with sticks–
Fear not, because we promise you
That, in about a week or two
Of having nothing else to do,
They’ll now begin to feel the need
Of having something good to read.
And once they start–oh boy, oh boy!
You watch the slowly growing joy
That fills their hears. They’ll grow so keen
They’ll wonder what they’d ever seen
In that ridiculous machine,
That nauseating, foul, unclean,
Repulsive television screen!
And later, each and every kid
Will love you more for what you did.
