did you read John Taylor

did you read John Taylor Gatto?? No offense, but you probably are NOT doing enough damage to the system. Children learn best when they teach themselves, so they have to be out in the real world, apprenticing for people. Children learn best, the stuff that they want to learn. if you can foster a love for reading instead of burdening them with homework and rote memorization, if they can find stuff they are interested in, and then go apprenctice for adults and get out in the real world, then there isn't much that one can do to break the vicious cylce of State-Slave-Monopoly

If you mention the involvement of the Russians in the Civil War, how their fleets were stationed off the atlantic and pacific, then you are venturing into subversive territory.

teach from Tragedy and Hope by Carroll Quigley and i don't think they will be able to put the genie back in that bottle, especially when you give them The Law by Bastiat and Libertarianism in One Lesson by David Bergland or A Libertarian Primer by David Boaz

Or the Case Against Fluoride by Dr. Paul Connet et al.

And don't swallow that b.s. that children only have a reading level of so much, that it's way over the head for them.

It's been accepted that it only takes a child 100 hours of self-studying to learn how to read, write, and do arithmetic.

the rest of the time, the government is teaching them to be wards of the state.

You need to up the subversion. what you said is not subversive enough. we are counter-revolutionaries. you've proven nothing to me.

sorry, i'm feeling cheeky.

And c'mon, Lincoln didn't free the slaves? why can't you just have said he freed the slaves out of raison d'etat, or realpolitik, now you're just making it worse, because you're saying no slaves were freed by lincoln. You can use that letter he wrote to that guy in charge of that paper. was it horace greely of the chicago tribune? i don't remember.

Well, sorry about some of this, but i was promised a teaching position, and then got stabbed in the back after i got my piece of paper (with a low g.p.a. from having learned languages outside of class) and had no career because of it. She didn't trust me to teach children. you damn right i was going to be subversive. teach them to think for themselves.

children want to be adults. period.
