Education and Politics

Education forms young minds and that is highly political. The media form young minds and older minds. That is intensely political. Political subversives inform important minds. That is intensely political. It makes sense to know who is doing the forming and why. More on this at Education

Education is a weapon whose effects depend on who holds it in his hands and at whom it is aimed.

The Myth of American Meritocracy 
Getting into the top universities in America is highly important for success. The process has been corrupted by the pressure.


Saying that history teaching can be a gross fraud may sound outrageous and even unthinkable but it happened in Australia. The early dealings of white men and Abos were systematically misrepresented and there was a political agenda behind it. Callow youth at university tends to believe that teachers are honest. Youth become older and emerges as lawyer, judge, politician, journalist and even teacher. The law of Australia was perverted by fools, the well meaning and rogues for the advantage of Abos. That were hopes among the honest of them;  hopes that failed and led to misery but no apologies. See Keith Windschuttle and Education on the point.

Should we believe anything that we are taught? Science and technology are pretty straightforward  subjects but we don't get leading edge treatment. Languages and geography again are reasonably honest. History, sociology [ a sub-calibre, Marxist ethnology ] and morals are wide open to opinion and bias. George Orwell said:-

  • I am willing to believe that history is for the most part inaccurate and biased, but what is peculiar to our own age is the abandonment of the idea that history could be truthfully written.

    • Looking Back on the Spanish War

  • He who controls the past controls the future. He who controls the present controls the past. Ex 1984

Government controlled universities teach feminism, lesbianism, communism and any others isms that you can think of but they are very keen against racism. Would you want your sons and daughters to pass that way? There are better things to do in this world and the entrepreneurial don't need much past reading, writing and arithmetic. Nor do bus drivers.

You can teach them to read and write at home. You can also introduce them to good books and once they are fluent it can be self sustaining. Bookworms of the world unite. You have nothing to lose except your ignorance.


Home Schooling
Is not the problem; it is an answer and a very good one. It gets your children out of the grip of the propaganda machine.


Rigging the Admissions Game Admission at Harvard
Keeping Jews out was the point and a failure. Now Jews keep honest men out.


Measuring intelligence makes sense. So does using it. But politics get in the way. Psychologists measured it then decided they did not like the answers they got so now they claim it cannot be measured. This is partly because blacks rate low.
