This is so timely!
Listening to late-night-radio...here it was:
"Agenda 21 is a non-binding, voluntarily implemented action plan of the United Nations with regards to sustainable development. Some view the plan as a way to inventory and control all land, water, plants, animals, and human beings in the world. William Jasper from the John Birch Society and Rosa Koire from Democrats Against Agenda 21 weighed in with their views, from both the right and left, on why Agenda 21 is bad news for the world."__ Coasttocoastam.com
"This plan is a whole life plan. It involves the educational system, the energy market, the transportation system, the governmental system, the health care system, food production, and more..."
THIS IS A "WHOLE LIFE PLAN"..............................
EDUCATION...The "DUMBING DOWN" of AMERICA:
Here's the list:
Art Thompson discusses: how the War on Terror produces more terror, the War on Poverty produces more poverty, and the War on Drugs produces more drugs; how Saving the Euro means Saving the EU; and how a suggestion in the New York Times to drop algebra is just another example of the dumbing down of the American student.
JOHN TAYLOR GATTO:
"Challenging the Myths of Modern Schooling":
"Dumbing Us Down: Written in the first months after John Taylor Gatto left schoolteaching, this book has attained the status of an underground classic"..
"Weapons of Mass Instruction"
John Taylor Gatto’s Weapons of Mass Instruction focuses on mechanisms of compulsory schooling which cripple imagination and discourage critical thinking.
"the new purpose of schooling—to serve business and government—
Only then could the necessary training in boredom and bewilderment begin. Such training is necessary to produce dependable consumers and dependent citizens who would always look for a teacher to tell them what to do in later life, even if that teacher was an ad man or television anchor..."___School As a Place of Bewilderment and Boredom
Seems that John made the "connection" years ago re: Big Business, Education, Brainwashing to Effect an Agenda...Agenda 21.
He was Teacher of the Year for NYC three(3) times, and quit at the peak of his career stating:
"I can't hurt the children anymore".
I got a real kick out of your email from an "educated person", which goes to show us how dumb this country has really gotten...dumb, docile, give me my "stuff" and I'll be happy...that kinda dumb.
Even the Democrats "get it"!
Agenda 21 is right in there with this educational brainwash.
Thanks for a great post with great links.
