You and I went through an educational system much like it exists today. Believe me...I just finished observing 12 years of my child's "education" in the United Snakes...and I know what public training is like currently. It is full of nonsense for the most part...as it has been for many a generation. The system only reflects what today's society deems important for our children to learn. Which, apart from math, is mostly bullshit. Those in charge write the world's history...the recent winners. Language is always changing. The political correctness of the day is always taught on many levels. In essence, it hasn't changed much here since Horace Mann came back from Prussia in the 1830's and instituted his "anti-intellectualism" reform that he learned there, which was used to train the soldiery of the area. It was a system to prepare youth for war. Period. So from then on, our schools have not been about educating anyone...they have been about training. Big difference. And one that the general populace in the U.S. has never seemed to grasp. And many countries world-wide have adopted such a model of "education".
True education, is a self-imposed phenomenon. It can certainly be guided this way or that...but at the end of the day...what one truly knows is garnered by intellectual curiosity. It has always been that way. It is the way of things.
So when I hear that our youth is being "dumbed down", I understand that the phrase refers to the "training" provided in those brick buildings to which we send our young, however...these training grounds cannot make anyone "dumb", unless of course they remove our children's power of speech. This discourse does not cover the medications that the system has in store for the children that question their training. Any parent that is "dumb" enough to subject their child to such abuse...shouldn't be allowed to reproduce in the first place...but that's a different discussion altogether.
In this, what I like to refer to as "the age of the jew", our embedded youth-training systems fit as nicely into the talmudic ill-regard for non-tribe members, as does the television in the corner of your living room. They both attempt an indoctrination of the masses that is "somewhat" effective. But certainly not entirely. As I said before, education comes from within...not from training.
You and I went through this military training and if anything, we are not worse for it...we are not "dumb"...but we are more inquisitive, more "educated"...because of it. For a lifetime of training can be entirely in vain, when intellectual curiosity rears its head. And it does. Right here. It always has...and it always will. Truth will out.
I am old enough to have seen the ashkanazi influence creeping into our training schools. Just as my mother was able to speak Latin that she learned in public primary schools of early in the last century, I too was taught many things that have gone by the wayside in public training system. I remember a time when the devastation of WWII, for instance was not taught as merely a "jewish" pogrom. We were made to understand that over 50 million people died in that conflict world-wide, and we knew nothing of imaginary "death camps" in Germany and Poland. Of course not because these were facts that had not yet come to light...but that the narrative had yet to be invented for our "poor jew" training. As is said, history is written by the winners. And the jewish won that war big-time. And they now pen world history...as it is presented as training. But that is not education by any stretch of the imagination.
So when I hear people out here decrying the state of our "educational systems"...saying that they are "dumbing down" our youth, I have to give pause and wonder what they mean by those phrases. To my way of thinking, such a combination of words is a bit oxymoronic. And it has nothing to do with intelligence, or those few precious developmental years in which we as parents must help guide our children by encouraging their natural intellectual curiosity. And we must do this long before Horace Mann and his currently yiddish-designed training system becomes ineffectual. And ineffectual it will be, if upon these blank slates of tiny minds, we as parents, implant the notion to question anything that does not make sense.
