In his book entitled, Dumbing Us Down: The Hidden Curriculum of Compulsory Schooling John Taylor Gatto, a teacher who was awarded the distinction of "Teacher of the Year" in New York State stated that he didn't feel that there should be public school education. He stated that children learned better when home schooled as was the case in days of yore.

Now we have teachers who are unsatisfied because their creativity is stifled, and students who are molded into little robots unable to use their intellect to reason, who are conditioned to be used as canon fodder or jail bait, and it has all been done to satisfy the cravings of the elite.

We observe the same phenomenon at the university setting as no history professor is able to lecture about the true history of the United States. Therefore, this edition is devoted to the teachers and professors who labor under this system of inferiority and suppression.

My personal observation in terms of high school students occurred one afternoon in Washington state when I stopped to speak with several high school students in my neighborhood. Already as 16-17 year olds, they displayed this reverence to the leadership of the United States, therefore, it was clear that they did not want to listen to the woman who could easily save their lives.

Let's hope that we will be able to end war soon as up until now, the elites have been highly successful in indoctrinating the children into the notion that they are defending democracy by going off to war.
