I googled this quote and the only place that it returns to is this thread....so where did it come from? Did you make it up? But uh, they are failing horribly because anything remotely related to communism is preached to be the worst thing next to Hitler in school. I graduated 3 years ago, so it's not like I'm old or anything. This global government is communist, America will conform. Yeah, sure, that's why corporations rule the wold, capitalist and fascist corporations. The global government plan is to bring back feudalism.
Listen sweetheart, I provided links to hours of material, I have studied this issue for years... if you don't have the time to even check any of the resources before you comment, scatter off... you won't "get it" anyway.

I searched the book you linked and the web pages, the quote was not in either. The quote also pulls only one result on google, which is this thread. So did you make it up or what?

I'm not sure you have. You seem to be in denial that capitalism is brainwashed into Americans since birth.

This content isn't new to me. I've listened to all of the Alex Jones Charlotte Isyerbit interviews like a year or two ago.edit on 5-9-2012 by RealSpoke because: (no reason given)
Parent teacher organizations need to get together to audit the educational package offered so both sides of each topic at hand in 'all' educational curriculums are presented to a student so they may choose for themselves via Reason which is truth and which is 'other'.
If the online education curriculum appears biased in one topic or another, an 'alternative' perspective or 'link' may be provided as well to ensure all sides are presented for a student to choose what is truth and what is propaganda. The truth, when found/heard is often irrefutable and stands on it's own merit, naturally, as it should. This also encourages debate, critical thinking, problem solving and involvement in one's personal education. Open Source is the only way forward to any society one can believe. Good effort OP, well presented and 'timely' delivery.

I disagree with a bunch of this, but S and F because it was laid out very well. As well as with a lot of heart. Personally I think you need to look to Big Oil and Big Corps for the lions share of trouble both political and social in the US and around the world. And I agree in 1989, when you were teaching and were sneakily asked to find out about the children's parents life at home, that kind of intrusion is wrong wrong wrong! But remember who the boss was in 1989. George the First. CIA man. Actually THE CIA man for awhile. Go figure he'd want to know what's up in every household. At least his son got to realize his dream.

I think it's interesting, possibly telling, that somebody could rationalise a friend's absence seizure (or similar "zone-out") as a "brain reset" caused by a control word. My first reaction would have been to ask my friend if I was boring them, and apologise for waffling. Although I'm not one to cast aspersions, I would say your reaction to the event is close to delusional.
As for the dumbing down of America, well, is that really happening? I doubt actual facts would substantiate that conjecture. The US has a 99% literacy rate in over 15's. Among the country's adult population, over 85 percent have completed high school and 27 percent have received a bachelor's degree or higher.
I would postulate your sacking as a teacher has left unhealed baggage. To you, the school system has become some nefarious perversion that is poisoning the minds of our children. It really isn't the case.edit on 6-9-2012 by zigguratvertigo because: (no reason given)
Uh, it's in a PDF file, you can search the text...this is the digital age. Did you make up the quote or what? You keep giving weird excuses...which makes you think you did.
I see a lot of people throwing around these terms 'communist,' 'socialist,' and 'capitalist'... and seemingly little understanding of what they actually mean... though that is very common, so not surprising...
