According to a woman who used to work for the United States government, the government officials who operate the United States education system, as well as other education systems, are deliberately dumbing down today's youth. I know that they do this to a certain extent in order to create docile workers, which is what school is basically for, creating a work force. However, I'm not sure it's to the extent that the woman is talking about. What do you guys think?

Wow, very interesting. The subject itself is of great fascination to me as I believe it 100%, seen it with my own eyes at one of the institutions where I was attending (i.e. allowing students to pass though they put forth no effort or expressed the typical liberal points of view the course was meant to instill (brainwash) into them.



I checked to see if her book was available and there were only 2 on Amazon at $199 each, and one on eBay for nearly the same price given the fact it is out of print and rare.



Notwithstanding, it has been a common theme heard before and during Obama's Administration that he could care less about the advancement of US Education because free thinkers and educated people (i.e. conservatives) go against his (and those like minded) New World Order of a socialistic, liberalized and entirely Marxist mentality.



Anyhow, I would be most curious to read her book and check her claims/facts myself.



Other books on the same lines of thought is one I read and have in my library is "Illiberal Education" by Dinesh D'Souza.

Thank you for posting an interesting video, Laguna.



This isn't an Obama administration phenomenon, and you're "on the other side" if you believe it is, Troy.



What I mean by "on the other side" is that the changes in public education date to the 70s, at least. NWO thinking, and propagandizing, goes so much deeper than party politics and politicians. So, to dress this issue with policies of the Obama administration provides cover for the people, cabal, really responsible for the incremental changes in public education.



But moreover, I've absolutely no knowledge of a common theme heard before and during Obama's Administration that he could care less about the advancement of US education.

I don't blame the government for dumbing down Americans, I blame Americans.

It's not either/or, it's both/and.

People should take personal responsibility and raise their children with information outside of what they get in school.

Agreed, totally.



People should love their neighbor, too. The reality is that they don't.



The author interviewed recounted personal experience with "high-level" planning. American public education has been used as a social engineering tool ... by the invisible "somebodies."

Oh yes, it must be that way, since you believe and think so. And we know that you're never wrong.

I agree, this isn't solely an Obama issue...but he is continuing that which was began so many years ago.

It's a loose issue that I have been reading about in a few political pundit books, among others...
