@WilliamSchooler "...... but what you refuse to allow me is that I refuse to allow them to continue by refusing to use there pathetic teachings and learn my own," Huh? Whatever.
You can do whatever you want; I'm not stopping you. And who the hell is Bob?
3 years ago on "I love George Washington. Except for his Foreign Policy."
@WilliamSchooler "You attempt to convince me you are unable to stand up and fight?"
Really. How did you ever come to that conclusion?
@WilliamSchooler "Treason is only allowed by your acceptance as well mine ...." Sadly, that is not the case. I may endeavor, as did many others over the decades, to elevate our educational system to become the global standard. What most of us didn't know was that since the 1930, at least, there was legislation that ACTUALLY PASSED that surreptitiously undermined that common American belief because corrupt legislators were being coerced by families like the Rockefellers and Carnegies and that the American public should get used to adopting a more Communist way of living, according to Andrew Carnegie.
So, that dream of working one's way up the capitalism ladder was OK to a point, so long as too many people didn't get on that ladder and challenge the position of the hard core elite.
@WilliamSchooler@PhilipMurray888 "A great revolution is an informed public with certainty of the direction for which they are headed ....." "An informed public"; I like that.
Imagine then what might have happened if the US population knew about the complicity of the Netherlands, England, and the US in cutting off supply lines to Japan in the 1930s .... and in particular, that our government KNEW that the Japanese Navy was underway long before Dec. 7th. Then too, imagine what might have happened if the population knew it had again been duped, when the the whole staged Gulf of Tonkin incident was trumped up to help drilling and mining interests in that region. 58,000 of our troops died in that conflict; not to mention the estimated two-million Asians and Chinese.
@WilliamSchooler Easy. First you look at Iserbyt's material. Charlotte was Reagan's first term Senior Policy Advisor for the Office of Educational Research and Improvement. It was the decades worth of federal legislation that she uncovered that she attempted to bring to light. This isn't just some idea I had, or that she had; this was, as she said, a deliberate attempt to downgrade the level of critical thinking in the American population while all these goody-two-shoes were talking America up as being the best in the world.
It is treason, flat and simple, and those traitors left a paper trail.
@phreedomphan@PhilipMurray888 We keep focusing on the politicians, yet it is the bankers who need a good ass woopin', or as you so aptly described it, "executive action". However, it's those dimwits in uniform, who still haven't figured out that have been duped; they will become the cannon fodder for the bankers because the bankers will have no problem sending wave after wave of those paramecium-minded sloths to mow down the very citizenry that was paying their salary.
Sooner or later, it will correct itself, if even only for a couple hundred years. As I was in the gun store today perusing the myriad of gun sale flyers from the various vendors, I was dumbfounded at just how many guns are out there in the world; I mean there are millions upon millions. Imagine, for a moment, if we were able to focus all that energy toward a higher standard of living for all people. Jefferson had said one of the first responsibilities we had was to educate as many people as possible, as fast as we could. He was right. Add to that the fact that as the educational level rises, the number of offspring go down. Those dim-witted "illuminists" are so sociopathic that they'd rather trash the planet through ignorance than educate everyone into willfully adopting a lower planetary population. I guess once the population gets educated, the people can also better conclude how they have been getting scammed, so it becomes obvious why nothing gets done until a population crisis emerges. In the end, these wannabe population managers are no better than some MacDonalds manager who blames the crappy food, the dirty toilets, the slippery floors, and the swarms of flies, on all of his employees instead of taking a good long look in the mirror.
@phreedomphan@WilliamSchooler There seems to be some glitch in my directly posting a link here, but try a cut paste with this:
@WilliamSchooler "Our Foreign Policy is only a measurement from the acts to ourselves."
I would agree ..... but when politicians intentionally limit the educational process to stifle voters' ability to question that foreign policy, then those legislators (and presidents and judges) are severely in violation of the Constitution. (See the work of Charlotte Iserbyt, "The Deliberate Dumbing Down of America")
@PhilipMurray888 Revolution does NOT have to be violent, nor does it have to imply that any existing member of Congress be dethroned. Revolution CAN, however, be the peaceful means of "reminding" those whom we have elected to oversee our higher workings of government that we still have a common sense of purpose and aspire, as individuals, as a country, and as members of the body of man, to do greater things in realizing our higher purpose.
Somehow, these clowns in Washington have lost their way. It doesn't make them ALL "bad", and while some of them definitely need just a good dope slap, there are, unfortunately, a large body of them, who are "the problem". Those pathological ones are those in positions of high power, who feel it necessary to hide everything they are doing from the American people, while at the same time choosing to bury their handiwork within mounds of intentionally confusing legislation and at the same time denying the population the necessary education that would have thrown the thugs out a long time ago.
What too many of our myopic and downright Constitutionally ignorant or flatly corrupt legislators fail to understand is that we have not yet matured enough as a society, as a republic, to in any way justify changing the wording of this document. While these idiots are all too eager to rewrite the Constitution to no doubt benefit a fascistic world system of governance, the fact remains that since the time of our forefathers, Jefferson's advice that we educate as many people as fast as possible has been undermined by the same forces that recently voted for this S.1867 travesty. These people are either, blind, stupid, or corrupt. To do otherwise, would naively (even sometimes maliciously) assume that the wise words of Socrates and Plato, and the teachings of the Tragedies were, well, nice words at the time but that, because of technology and the speed and complexity of our current climate, they just aren't up to speed to handle the needs of today.
As philosophers have proven to us for thousands of years, the inner workings of man's mind has changed little. Rather than being all to quick to assume our race has matured enough to transcend our founding documents, we should be even more desperately clinging to those documents for the wisdom they continue to contain. To do otherwise would assume that a six year old has matured enough to drive his father's Corvette, solely because he had found the car keys and had seen his father turn them to start the car.
