It appears not to be the same education us older folks rec'd in the US today. The experiments seem to be going on and on...as describes some time ago:Education should aim at destroying free will so that after pupils are thus schooled they will be incapable throughout the rest of their lives of thinking or acting otherwise than as their school masters would have wished ... The social psychologist of the future will have a number of classes of school children on whom they will try different methods of producing an unshakable conviction that snow is black. When the technique has been perfected, every government that has been in charge of education for more than one generation will be able to control its subjects securely without the need of armies or policemen.
-- Johann Gottlieb Fichte (1762-1814) German philosopher, psychologist, considered the father of German nationalism Source: Prussian University in Berlin, 1810, quoted by The Impact of Science on Society by Bertrand Russell, 1952

2/10/15 from www.Investors.com: UN Official Reveals Real Reason Behind Warming Scare Excerpt:"At a news conference last week in Brussels, Christiana Figueres, executive secretary of UNs Framework Convention on Climate Change, admitted that the goal of environmental activists is not to save the world from ecological calamity but to destroy capitalism."This is the first time in the history of mankind that we are setting ourselves the task of intentionally, within a defined period of time, to change the economic development model that has been reigning for at least 150 years, since the Industrial Revolution," she said."

THINK who was the economic model the past 150 yrs? USA...so basically, it appears it is the USA the UN is going to destroy in their defined period of time: the 21st Century (hence the UNs Agenda 21). Well, it appears that industry has left the USA, doesn't it?

Abby

Common Core and Regionalizarion are examples...

Abby

Think: United Nations Agenda 21. Why? It includes 170 countries who apparently want a centralized WORLD Government and the US gets to pay for it to happen...THANKS TAXPAYERS! One must wonder why a sovereign nation would want an outside entity (UN) dictating to their cities, counties, states and federal government???

Abby

He forgot the part about government servants taking a large cut for themselves before sharing the spoils....

Abby

Since there are several Tom Andersons listed online, could you specify which made this statement?

Today's quote along with the numerous responses today, show us how far America is moving away from liberty towards communism...and the NWO. More and more people are beginning to believe (not think-thinking isn't very prevalent these days) it will be okay to steal from one person to give to another against their will. Liberty and freedom are just becoming words...we are no longer FREE in this country if we must work 4 months to have our money taken by force & spent as we would NOT want it spent (sent to countries who have their own resources, sent to our enemies, spent to bolster interlopers in our country while our countrymen go without, food stamps, disability for those who are merely unemployed but lacking desire to work, subsidies for corps., etc), and a federal education system that promotes childishness and dependence. I don't get it...but I see that it is so well promoted with the propaganda we are spoon fed every hour of our lives via TV, that honor, ethics,and other virtues, along with innovation, imagination, reason, and personal pride that are just a few of the necessary descriptions of a GROWING and sane country with a GROWING economy are becoming unknown and unlived by today's lazy society. The rewards will be brief and grief will ensue. We are Rome...or so it seems when we see the screaming and cheering people at the Bernie rallies as he promises ice cream and back rubs for all.

William Cash is Senior Manager of IRS: Independent Referral Services, not Internal Revenue Service, in case anyone wonders.

Abby

When speaking of all of society, this would be a great quote. Especially if speaking to an educated society. Selectively, this isn't necessarily true today. Solyndra is an example...we have a picknchoose government, and we have a whirlpool of politicians, circling round and round DC from position to position, never leaving the comfort of the tax dollar paid bedding they lie upon. DC is nothing like the vision of the Founders...it is a cesspool of winks and nods. It is why we have Trump and Bernie as candidates. It will only get worse as we have had 3 generations of FEDERAL education to teach people to be good uneducated followers...and the 4th generation is coming up fast...

Kids are not allowed to explore their world any more. They don't play outside without an adult until they drive for FEAR that something bad will happen. They are NEVER without the electronic leash where they might have to think for themselves.
Go to the park and you have organized play...go to a National Park and you must not pick up rocks, sticks or step off the trail, etc...so there is NO exploration there, only what they are told...not unlike in the classroom. It may sound like home-school rhetoric, but chat with a home-schooled child who is age 13 and then a public schooled child the same age...and the difference is remarkable...one is miles ahead of the other...guess which one.

Abby

Well said by a woman who began on the side of dependence and fought her way to independence and freedom! You go, Star!

Abby

Alinsky stole the word radical the same way the left robbed those who love liberty of the word liberal.

Abby

I love Yachats, having grown up in the area...nice to see some very intelligent being still exists in the little town (but for the city tax...yuk)...and at the time, in those olden days, most in the area were proud of their self reliability, self responsibility, self sufficiency and self determination, which they took other places with them. Yup, they would have been embarrassed to tears to be on the dole even if very hungry. Now folks march around whining if they are 'offended' or think they deserve what their neighbor worked hard for...times are sure different now, eh? No golden rule to live by.
Don't harm other peoples property; Don't take other peoples stuff; and Don't hurt other people. Wow, 3 simple rules to live by and EVERYONE would get along.

Abby

Great quote, worthy of being among the likes of Geo Washington and the other Founders. Sadly, we have a population now containing many who would have him run out of town for offending them somehow (at least off a college campus).

Here are those who vote in a manner that HONORS their word to support and defend the US Constitution at least 90% of the time in the 114th Congress; they are the A team. There are a few on the B team but the majority of Congress are on the F team (their loyalty goes to lobbyists or an agenda not constitutional.
Here is the A team:
Rand Paul, Ben Sasse, Raul Labradore, David Perdue, Thomas Massie, Justin Amash, Alex Mooney, Mike Lee, and Thom Tillis. It should be disheartening to learn that out of 535 members of Congress, less than 10 get an A. If the B team is ok with you you can look up their scores, but be aware that not all scoring agencies judge on adherence to the Constitution only--The document that separated the USA from all the other nations in the world by embracing individual liberty. This is the team that is trying to hold our country together in a lawful manner as of July 2015.

Too late here. 4 generations of people propagandized by the FEDERAL education system to be 'world citizens', not US citizens. And, along with that is the redistribution of US wealth for the so called 'damage' done to other nations because of the 'US caused global warming', the biggest social engineering plot of the UN (aka IMF, World Bank) to date...
"This is the first time in the history of mankind that we are setting ourselves the task of intentionally, within a defined period of time, to change the economic development model that has been reigning for at least 150 years, since the Industrial Revolution." Christiana Figueres Executive Secretary of the UN convention on UN climate Change
She has some other pretty profound statements if you put her name into google on capitalism, communism, and the like.
Ask yourself, what is the 'defined period' of time? Answer: the 21st century hence, Agenda 21, now morphed into Future Earth.
Who was the economic development model that reigned the past 150 years? USA and Western Europe. How are they doing now? Well, in the USA as of 12-2015 (the link to that news is available on google) the middle class is no longer in the majority. Also, our less than economically stable nation is bringing in thousands of new people. People who will find no jobs as business has moved to other countries (that is why our middle class is gone). All will be on public assistance. Food for thought.

Once again, God bless Thomas Sowell. He totally understands the power of words and sees how easily people are led with propaganda. Democracy is mob rule: 51% of the people can oppress the other 49% (and the political body works towards this goal continually). Our republic is based upon the rule of law where everyone enjoys the same opportunity and freedom, Of course, men have a way of fouling that up when no one is looking....

Abby

He borrows a phrase here from Ben Franklin...but Democracy is NEVER but 2 wolves voting on what to have for dinner...because it is mob rule; It is 51% of the population OPPRESSING the other 49%. It is why the United States is a Republic, a nation of law (tho you would never believe it the way our Executive, Judicial, and Congress spit upon the the Law). Our government, right now is so divisive that it appears the WOLVES are about to devour the sheep because they ignore the fact that LAW has CONSEQUENCES.

Chaos precedes totalitarianism

Please educate me regarding 1307 Ron...

Abby

Please rethink, Mike and Mike...we witness this in our country daily...and we hear many spouting their dislike or disgust for this country even tho they continue to live here, were born here, and don't move on. It is appalling the number of folks who whine today over lack of prosperity yet accept the rules and regulations that are unconstitutional as good law for they truly believe that our government would only do what is best for the nation. They believe the propaganda on msm. Some of the population is paying attention but most are being led into the grossest of errors and they can't even see it happening. (UNs Agenda 21, Common Core, propaganda on tv, lies by politicians, manipulation of stats, theft by central bank). These can only be 'forced' upon an ignorant and misled society...Hamilton is correct~it is the fault of the populace to have no interest in their own liberty for if they were interested, they would learn of and insisted upon a government which didn't lead them away from the Constitution. They would have cheered on Dr Paul at last election instead of Obama, they would be shouting for Sen Paul today rather than for Trump or Bernie. They would elect new city county state and federal servants if they didn't honor their Oath of Office. We live in an extremely ignorant society who just goes along to get along. That makes it the fault of the we the people...for we do not see society rising up united against the force and failures of the government. Sadly, we the people don't seem to give a damn.

Without time for reflection, man will be no different than sheep being tended by a wolf. What better way to put the mind to work than while working one's body.

It is still so, even tho gov. regulation is increasingly eliminating the ability to farm all over western America. Food must be imported in greater amounts. What would happen should the US be unable to get food into the USA due to weather or other disaster for any length of time? What farmers that are left would be working double time (which farmers do already). Ranching and farming is being deemed 'unsustainable'...and a vegan diet is being considered as the only clear alternative in the USA, all in order to rewild America.
