This is a quote that should be read and pondered by parents, teachers, religious and political leaders, and especially by the young people of today.

James Robinson, Chattanooga, TN

Outstanding! All should take notice. Remember...Values are not taken away, they are given up by those who allow it to happen.

Mike, Norwalk

Almost prophetic. The occupying statist theocracy infesting this land with its theocratic seminaries (government schools) proves the point of the quote very well.

Truth Goodness and Beauty are the cherished Universal Human Values. It by way of Science Ethics and Philosophy !.

Patrick Henry, Red Hill

"Give me four years to teach the children and the seed that I have sown will never be uprooted."
- V. I. Lenin

A lesson learned well by the indoctinators who have commandeered, particularly, this nation's system of nominally public education.

E Archer, NYC

Thus compulsory education by the state. Tell me the prevailing sentiments of the young, and I will tell you the curriculum of the state.

Collectivism is the creed of state education breeding dependence, irresponsibility, servitude, authoritarianism and envy. Blame, blame, blame. Do Americans even want to produce anything anymore?
