Today’s Thought: The Department of “Non”-Education’s Irrefutable But Predictable Failure

I like many of our youth past and present have or are currently roamed the halls of our public educational system supposedly to “learn” so that we could graduate, go off to college, get a job, and live happily ever after.

While this picture is one that the media, academia, our public officials, teacher’s unions, and our beloved federal government is a utopian goal that has been handed down generation after generation the Department of “Non”-Education which started off as most bad, public policy does as a good thing has turned our public school systems into an educational wasteland where learning is secondary to the policy of the government and the union’s that lobby them for benefits that often no longer benefit our children but the many corrupt union bosses that rake in the dough and distribute it back to political candidates that support “the gravy train” that feeds their salacious appetites for power.

My journey through our educational system was no different and I like so many that graduate K-12 hoping for a better life soon realize that this “great educational system” has neither prepared us for or taught us many of the skills needed to enter the workforce if we choose to work a trade (which used to be a viable alternative for those that had no desire to go to college).

This is the situation that I found myself in after graduating high school but thankfully I joined the Army and began my own educational journey of which I am still on today and instead of just having access to many of the socialistic and moderate thinkers that the government says are the standard I exposed myself to thinkers that taught the history that I was never told which were steeped with liberty and freedom and my mind soon was expanded to men like John Locke, Elbridge Gerry, Tenche Coxe, Charles de Montesquieu, Fredrick Douglas, and Alexis de Tocqueville just to name a few which were only glossed over in the public education setting.

After I joined the Army and started “self-study” absent of the dictatorial constraints of governmental instruction a picture began to form of how the institutions that were beholding to the government were teaching advocacy to children that were held captive without any form of egress to other avenues of education and by the threat of the “whip” of the laws that THEY created to ensure the enslavement of many of our children in our current education system. 

This has proliferated the “government is the answer” mentality that so permeates our society and has created the current dependency state that our country finds itself in today.  This is not an indictment on many of our teachers because I know many that are highly qualified, highly motivated, and exuberantly willing to teach our children. 

However, they are often hamstrung by rules and regulations that always slant “learning” towards an appreciation for government which in turn creates future, apathetic, idealistic,  little, “zombie”, non-taxpayers whom at 18 years of age vote with the non-wisdom ideology that they’ve been taught in many of our K-12 systems!

This is why the Department of  “non”-Education should be abolished because they are not (as they pretend to be)  looking out for the best interests and educational needs of our children but are ensuring by the “club” of the laws that they themselves create (and often by re-writing history) their perpetual existence and the ever exponential growth of the federal beauracracy that threatens to kill this republic as a parasite often does its host.

I fully realize that this notion has become folly so it is up to “we the people” to un-educate our children from the propagandistic portion of their public educational learning and instruct them in the admonition of the Lord which leads to the true wisdom, understanding and prosperity that our Founding Fathers envisioned in their often deadly struggle for liberty when establishing the new republic that would become these United States of America.
