You aren't taught very much about the political system in USA high schools. I graduated around 3 years ago. And I went to multiple schools. All
the same thing.
Touch on things like the Great Depression and the Dust Bowl and leave out HUGE chunks of important historical topics.
They'll teach you about Hitler and WW2 but never teach you that he got the idea of eugenics from the USA and we were forced sterilizing people up to
When I learned about the eugenics program in the USA I was like is this real??? Why did they never teach us this? It's a huge DEAL,
Anyone that I told that we forced sterilized people didn't believe me. They thought I was making it up...
Anyone that I told the Nazis were inspired by our eugenics program. They thought I was making it up...
They don't teach you about the CONTENTS of the constitution, OR the contents of the Deceleration of Independence.
They leave out HUGE parts, they'll teach you the word but never WHY or WHAT is in the historical document.
Like all the kids would know the term "checks and balances" but they couldn't tell you who checks or balances what. They know the term but
NOTHING of the meaning behind it.
I'm convinced they seriously want the kids dumb.
School always creeped me out anyway. All the operant conditioning with bells and never being able to challenge the authority even if they are wrong.
It's one big training school to teach kids how to obey. Teach them they have NO power to question authority, because they are just a measly CIVILIAN.
But then again I read 1984 when I was 14, so maybe I'm just nuts right?
