Forum Post: End Corporate Brainwashing of Kids, a.k.a. Education

  • The conventional education system, like the government, is controlled by large corporations.
  • Expensive textbooks are forced on schools by corrupt corporate-controlled governments.
  • Teachers are brainwashed with similar textbooks in teacher training colleges.
  • Schools force kids to attend boring classes all day most of the year, against their wills, and this is child abuse.
  • Kids learn by playing, and schools prevent kids from playing and having fun most of the time, which is detrimental to their learning.
  • Kids are naturally restless in boring situations, just as prisoners are restless in prison, and schools force restless kids to be medicated with toxic and addictive expensive corporate-controlled drugs, which makes them easier to control and has side effects of addiction, depression, suicidal tendencies and even the urge to kill others.
  • Kids in schools are practically forced to get vaccinations that are unproven to be either safe or effective.
  • School lunch and vending machines help addict kids to junk foods for corporate profit.
  • (Much of the population's water is fluoridated because toxic fluoride makes people more docile and easier to control.)
  • Schools take some kids away from good families against their will and against their families' wills, if parents don't accept schools' abuses of their kids.
  • Kids and parents should be encouraged to do private or home schooling (home schooling is legal in all 50 states). (One of the comments gives false impressions of home schooling. Home schoolers in general are much smarter than public schoolers.)
  • Kids can learn better on the internet than from expensive corporate propaganda textbooks.
  • Kids should be encouraged to recognize that they are in prison and that their imprisonment is abuse.
  • They should be encouraged to stop taking tests, because testing sets them up to become part of a corrupt system of abuse to kids and the 99%.
  • They should be encouraged to organize themselves to oppose their imprisonment and the other above-named abuses.
  • Teachers and parents should be encouraged also to help end the abusive system in schools.

What is wrong with taking a test? I mean how do you know if the kids are learning anything if you don't test them. It is shit like this that turns kids into whiny brats who think they can do no wrong.

And how on earth do teens who are home schooled get laid?

  • I updated this topic. Since older adults are least flexible in their thinking and least able or willing to change, it's up to younger adults and adolescents to start changing the system. The conventional education system is modeled after the Prussian system, which was a militaristic system that taught students to be loyal to the corrupt state, giving blind obedience to pretended authorities. Horace Mann introduced this same system into the U.S. in about 1840 in Massachusetts. The Prussian education model has played a large part in turning the U.S. into an imperialist, fascist state.

I know many home schoolers. I must emphatically say I have yet to see one home schooled kid capable of holding a real job let alone be functional in greater society. I know there are a lot of problems with our public schools, but offering up home school is pure bullshit. Worst of all it is the most damaging thing parents can do to their children.

I don't think the corporations are brainwashing our kids - it's the government - they dictate what is to be taught - wanting to be politically correct and turn our younger generation into a society that won't be able to think for themselves but instead will have to depend on the government for their survival.

Although I agree with what you are saying you are not offering any solutions. I think the title of this post is misleading because Education should not be done away with -- it needs to go through a complete paradigm shift. Education needs to come from the community not from the state.

Matt, you can learn a lot in prison, but it's hard to learn that prison is abuse, if it's all you've known. A school that isn't a prison is not abusive, but few schools are not prisons.

Charlotte Thompson Iserbyt served as the head of policy at the Department of Education during the first administration of Ronald Reagan. While working there she discovered a long term strategic plan by the tax exempt foundations to transform America from a nation of rugged individualists and problem solvers to a country of servile, brainwashed minions who simply regurgitate whatever they're told.

Part one of our exclusive interview with Iserbyt breaks down how conditioning/training under a corporate agenda has replaced traditional education, leading to a deliberate dumbing down of Americans. Iserbyt further explains how Reagan signed agreements merging the U.S. and Soviet systems under the United Nations banner, turning over education and many other areas of public policy to global control.

This 74 minute exposé is a must see for anyone who wants to truly know why the education system is deliberately crafted to produce human drones with no critical thinking whose only skills are to be subservient, trust authority and follow orders.
