2+2=4 History with Eyes Open: Things I Wish I Could Have Told My Students

Overview

"Freedom is slavery." If the government can define and control freedom then freedom becomes a deranged delusion and nothing more. "Ignorance is strength." If we are never made aware of the fact that the most evil criminals in history control all life through the printing of the worthless pieces of paper money that we are made to toil for, we will never be able to identify our real enemies so that we might break our chains. This fact is certainly their strength. "War is peace." All wars are charades designed for nothing more than obscene profits

Overview

"Freedom is slavery." If the government can define and control freedom then freedom becomes a deranged delusion and nothing more. "Ignorance is strength." If we are never made aware of the fact that the most evil criminals in history control all life through the printing of the worthless pieces of paper money that we are made to toil for, we will never be able to identify our real enemies so that we might break our chains. This fact is certainly their strength. "War is peace." All wars are charades designed for nothing more than obscene profits and human control, even the "War for American Independence." If we never know this we will continue to sacrifice our progeny to the idols of "patriotism" and "freedom" and leave our true enemies in perfect peace and prosperity.

We have been taught that history shows the long track of human progress. We were told that this progress has led us to a greater experience of the blessings of freedom and equality. Nothing could be further from the truth. In the name of "freedom" and "equality' we have been recruited to build the system for our own enslavement. The highest ideals of our innate human natures have been turned into the operant conditioners by which we have been transformed into willing servants of evil forces. If we grow suspicious of the "all is well" sirens of our popular media sources and speak out, we will be psychologically remolded and put back in our place among the ranks of the institutionalized, compliant herd.

What do we teach you in the public schools? Maybe we should ask, what does the public school system make us into? The founders of this nation would have never tolerated a public school system. They left no provision for such a monstrosity in the Constitution. Our once highly successful education system, the envy of the world, began under the supervisory control of the community and the church. Our present public school system, the laughing stock of the world, was modeled by our "leaders" on the totalitarian education model perfected in the Soviet Union. We were told that this was done in order to help us win the "Cold War." Is it any surprise that we lost (and by the way, they never told us).

There are many things that we are told about history that are obviously nonsense. Of course we are told to think critically, but if we dare to do so we are crucified. This book is for those remaining skeptics among us, those refreshing individuals who are dissatisfied with the homogenized drivel we are force-fed daily. The meditations found in this book are born of that spirit and offered in candid appreciation of the people still capable of independent thought.

Meet the Author

The author has a Bachelor's and Master's degree in history, and a minor in Education. He spent ten years teaching in the inner city in Houston, and his last nine years in rural and suburban schools.

He has grown uneasy by the continual downward trend in educational excellence in America. He has noticed the sad tendancy of our social studies education to make kids think and act like socialists. College professors have observed that the high school kids get to college knowing very little. They know to recycle and to not smoke. One college Humanities professor commented that he surveyed high school students who thought the most important job of the government was to "create jobs." This is the tragedy that the author laments. The US government was given three important functions at its inception: first of all to protect citizens rights, secondly to protect our borders, thirdly to sign treaties to secure the prosperity of this great land and its people. The author sees the results of a tragic-shift in our thinking propagated in our government schools.

This is his first book. He has had the opportunity to collect his thoughts and focus his classroom experience into this answer to the public educational program. He has written this book for anyone who is disatisfied with our educational system, the deplorable state of our civic understanding, and the bankrupcy of our political discource. He also has a special concern for kids leaving the churches, and the public schools for colleges and universities. They are unequipped for the mental labyrinth they are entering. This book is the trail of string to help them keep in touch with their faith, their identity, and their common sense.
