I was in the first grade when my teacher informed the class that Columbus discovered America. I found this notion to be bizarre. So I raised my hand and asked how this made any sense, as the Native Americans had already been settled her for a long time. She flipped, because in order to stay in line with the curriculum, she had to deny the truth of what I was saying. It was from this point that I realized there was a conspiracy by the state to push political agendas in the classroom. Well, I didn't think of it like that, it was more like...this is nonsense. Realize that these "teachers" are fully capable of trying to feed you nonsense. Check.
