As you might have gleaned from my previous posts, I am dismayed about the current state of our education. Not a week passes that I do not witness another unmistakable sign of death of reason and critical thinking in our public schools as well as on our campuses of higher learning. This is symptomatic of cultural Marxism that has been plaguing our educational system from primary school on up for the past five or so decades
Ever since in the 1920s and 1930s Italian Marxist Antonio Gramsci, the father of cultural Marxism who argued that traditional values must be obliterated in order to free “oppressed” social groups, called for eliminating social decorum and glorifying perverse behavior in order to destroy the Western middle class and collapse society from within (guess where Cloward and Piven got their strategy from), the radical teacher unions in the U.S. have adopted his blueprint to undermine free market capitalism as the enemy of a "socially just" political and economic system.
As such, schools have given up on developing critical thinking skills that usually take place during the second stage of one's education - the logic (or dialectic) stage. The reason is as obvious as day: teach a child to think critically and you will lose a future progressive. Here is the latest example of inadequately educated children (I shudder to think that they will be running this country soon)
The same group of students have similar videos taken on different campuses of UC, including Berkeley, that reinforce my fears that my children may become such zombies if I do not intervene. A fair warning to all parents: take active interest in your young children's education.
