In a socialist society, everyone consumes, no one produces and this is exactly the experience that children are living in schools and homes across America today with No Rights. We live in a free country, but our children live in a socialist society. So it’s not surprising why kids favor socialism, they’ve spent the most important years of their lives being socialized and indoctrinated by authoritarian socialist institutions so it’s the only thing they know. They don’t know how to make money for themselves by creating because the school system literally teaches people to be poor. Throughout American history children have worked to provide for themselves and their families, but today when children are in need, they are completely dependent upon their parents or society for handouts instead of having the freedom to follow their natural instinct to create for themselves. Our society purposely induces this learned helplessness on kids. Socialism and communism are responsible for scarcity, starvation, brutality, and the murder of tens of millions of people over the past 100 years.
"You can’t make socialists out of individualists. Children who know how to think for themselves spoil the harmony of the collective society which is coming, where everyone is interdependent." ~ John Dewey [The Father of American Education]
It’s obvious why schooling promotes socialism because it is socialism while completely brainwashing kids to believe they are living in a capitalist society. A capitalist society is the real world, not a completely artificial school indoctrinating kids. The only capitalism happening within schools is the crony capitalism you’ll find feeding off schools from the outside which are the few corrupt corporations that make up the entire curriculum of schools. Since the beginning of compulsory schooling, this cronyism has been allowed to flourish because of the corrupt nature of schooling where lobbyist for these corporations hold so much power, they make their own rules which is why this is probably one of the oldest and best examples of cronyism in our society. In fact, the public-school system is one of the purest examples of socialism existing in America. The schooling system in much of the world today was literally founded by socialists. Compulsory Schooling is the most important tenet of socialism because without it, people would never embrace such a system of oppression. True capitalism promotes free choice and free will and people have to be seriously indoctrinated (13+ years of schooling) to love slavery more than freedom. Compulsory schooling would not exist in a true capitalist society, in a true capitalist society, education would be open sourced to free enterprise and individuals could choose what works best for their own education.
“In 1963 Florida (Democratic) Congressman Albert “Syd” Herlong read into the Congressional Record, “45 Goals of Communists” to bring about in the United States.
“17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.”
As discussed in The Purpose of School post, schools in America and around the world are modeled on the Prussian model, the leading state of the German empire, a socialist state that worked closely with the Nazi Party (National Socialist). Socialist Konrad Haenisch became the first Prussian Minister of education in 1919 (until 1921) and in 1922 Regional President of the Prussian region of Wiesbaden. Haenisch became a socialist while at High School. His conservative family took him out of school because of this and put him in a psychiatric institution where he escaped and fled to Leipzig where he started a career as a journalist and later editor for social democratic and socialist papers such as Editor of Die Glock from 1915, which was a top secret Nazi scientific technological device, secret weapon.
"Under Frederick William II, Frederick the Great’s nephew and successor, from the end of the eighteenth century on into the nineteenth, Prussian citizens were deprived of all rights and privileges. Every existence was comprehensively subordinated to the purposes of the State, and in exchange the State agreed to act as a good father, giving food, work, and wages suited to the people’s capacity, welfare for the poor and elderly, and universal schooling for children. The early nineteenth century saw Prussian state socialism arrive full-blown as the most dynamic force in world affairs, a powerful rival to industrial capitalism, with antagonisms sensed but not yet clearly identified. It was the moment of schooling, never to surrender its grip on the throat of society once achieved."
We moved from an agrarian based economy where producing and cultivating farmland was the primary source of wealth to a industrial based economy which included industrializing agriculture leading to the #4 reason kids are failing and the greatest heist of all time. Just as everything was being industrialized, we made the grave mistake of industrializing and institutionalizing childhood. Then we moved to a service based economy where the entire economy is based on providing services without anyone actually making or creating anything. This is why most all American manufacturing was outsourced to countries with cheap slave labor. Today, we live in an information based economy, where robots have replaced human service, which is why it doesn’t make sense to go to schools designed for an industrial based economy. Today, information is everywhere, we don’t need schools with extremely limited information based on indoctrination to force feed us an education.
“In an agricultural society, or during a time of exploration and settlement, or hunting and fathering–which is to say, most of mankind’s history–energetic boys were particularly prized for their strength, speed, and agility. […] As recently as the 1950s, most families still had some kind of agricultural connection. Many of these children, girls as well as boys, would have been directing their energy and physicality in constructive ways: doing farm chores, baling hay, splashing in the swimming hole, climbing trees, racing to the sandlot for a game of baseball. Their unregimented play would have been steeped in nature.” ~ Richard Louv, Last Child in the Woods: Saving Our Children from Nature-Deficit Disorder
In every aspect of our society we possess such overwhelming control over the lives of children that they are prohibited by law from doing things which not only could help children live and learn by doing, but most importantly creating instead of consuming. Our society stifles children’s growth by preventing them from working to create value and gain valuable real world experience. School and childhood in America is all about consuming, the powers that be don’t want children creating in life, they want them working for them and buying their creations.
“All the time you are in school, you learn through experience how to live in a dictatorship.” ~ Grace Llewellyn
“The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people’s money.” ~ Margaret Thatcher
This doctor stated this profound paragraph back in 1931 which says it all:
“You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.” ~ Dr. Adrian Rogers, 1931
"Socialism is the perfect example of the Crab Mentality which is a metaphor used to describe the “if I can’t have it, neither can you” mindset. Individually, the crabs could easily escape the pot, but instead they pull each other down by competitively clawing at each other like spiteful humans trying to bring down those who are more successful, preventing anyone from escaping and ensuring their collective demise."
"Pulling someone down will never help you reach the top" ~ kushandwizdom
"Misery loves company." ~ John Ray
"Socialism is like a mouse trap. It works because the mouse doesn’t understand why the cheese is free." ~ Alexander Staudt
"My political opinions lean more and more to Anarchy (philosophically understood, meaning abolition of control, not whiskered men with bombs). The most improper job of any man is bossing other men. Not one in a million is fit for it, and least of all those who seek the opportunity." ~ J.R.R. Tolkien [The Letters of J.R.R. Tolkien)
"University’s are getting rich charging kids tens of thousands of dollars for degrees that actually don’t guarantee a middle class life. That’s injustice! And when young people have experienced that, it’s not surprising that they would look for radical political change."
"Kids are embracing it because of what they’re learning in schools, the experience of higher education."
"I think that the reason this is happening, honestly, is not because people understand what socialism is, I think most young people have absolutely no clue what socialism is. Have you ever talked to a young person about socialism? They have no clue what it is! But what they know is that the current system we have now, whether you’re talking about college education, loans, or economics, or Wall St., or anything else, they know that that system is broken and that it’s corrupt and it’s full of cronyism and they don’t like it."
"And they’re being told by their marxist professors that the reason that exists is because there’s all these millionaire and billionaires and if we could just take their money away from them and give the power to the government, give the money to government, then we could solve all these problems."
"America’s Public Schools are socialist indoctrination factories from the time you walk into kindergarten until the time you leave college, you are being indoctrinated."
