I. The 21st Century School: Idiots Development Center
On the administrative side, huge regional schools have replaced small local schools. Their centralized management no longer allow parents, teachers, or students to make any important changes. With this regionalization came a yellow tsunami of school buses. Riding the school bus has become traumatizing. Often piled up three per seat, children spend two hours a day on the bus in first grade. Mixed up with big kids, they witness insults, violence, theft, rape, racism, sexism, and prostitution — one blowjob for a few dollars. The bus driver may try to limit the damage, but it is difficult to manage fifty kids while driving on icy roads or in busy traffic.
In fact, 21st century schools have become a nasty combination of prison, hospital, and boarding school. Here is proof:
- Between 1951 and 1961, radiation experiments were conducted on 110,000 children in Israel’s public schools. Repetitively, they received 35,000 times the maximum dose of X-rays on the head. Around the same time, 4,000 kids in US public schools faced similar treatments. Do you think that such physical abuse has stopped in the 21st century? Read on!
- Several public health procedures take place in schools that are meant to dumb down kids’ brains or destroy their health — vaccinations, dental fluoride, psychiatric testing on individual and family matters.
- Numerous schools now have front desk security, metal detectors, internal and external cameras, and armed security guards. In some countries, policemen visit schools on a regular basis to run operations related to drugs or weapons, with dogs on a leash and machine guns in hand.
- Teachers watch students through hidden cameras that are integrated directly inside classroom computers. Some portable computers that are loaned to students are equipped with spying programs and cameras that allow teachers to watch kids and parents directly at home.
- Because of severe budget cuts, school buildings are deteriorating and classroom materials are missing or obsolete. Teachers are often forced to pay from their own pocket to get the equipment they need for their job.
- Some ready-made educational programs are given free or for a small fee by large-scale media. Time for Kids (45 countries) and l’actualité en classe (Quebec) are two of numerous examples. On the Internet, you can find free educational resources on all subjects — lesson plans, exercises, activities, games, and teaching tips. For example, Times Educational Supplement (TES) is a British site that offers 140,000 resources and 5,000 videos. TES is used by 1.5 million teachers in 196 countries and is financed by Charterhouse Bank.
Whether we know it or not, whether we want it or not, the 21st century school is emerging in all countries, thanks to the centralized efforts of the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization. Surreptitiously, UNESCO has established its global educational monopoly and is working hard at enhancing planet-wide unity by destroying the main cause of individuality — the family.
Laws were passed to create a legal person, making the State the official owner of children. Parents became legal guardians and the State was able to dictate when and how it wanted its young citizens to be educated. Parental influence was minimized in the following ways: 1) by forcing children to spend most of their time in school, far from parents; 2) by encouraging both parents to work long hours far from their children; 3) by imposing unpleasant activities to both parents and children when they were together — homework; 4) by making the parent-child relationship dependent on a few fictitious numbers — school grades.
As for the curriculum, hidden under piles of false and useless facts lay its true purpose: to create physical, moral, and intellectual paralysis inside each child so that, once an adult, he would remain an eternal teenager, incapable of becoming self-sufficient and willing to follow blindly the orders of a superior while remaining convinced of his own biological inferiority. If we look around us, it is obvious that their efforts were wildly successful.
II. The Ultimate Slave-Trap
In the past decade, the globalization of schooling has been accelerating, thanks to organizations such as Education 2000 (born in 1983), 21st Century Learning Initiative (1995), Wikiversity and WikiEducator (2006), and the World Innovation Summit for Education (2009). The new pedagogical approach being favoured no longer depends on books and even less on teachers vomiting their knowledge onto students quietly listening behind rows of desks. Students of 21st century learning initiatives sit in front of computer screens and learn the lies dictated by the elite inside virtual classrooms. Instead of forcing everyone in the class to learn at the same speed and pass exams at the same time, each person can now follow her own rhythm.
This approach is called outcome-based education. Nobody ever flunks a test anymore. Their success is only “deferred” to a later date. Programmers who specialize in the control of human behaviour have designed appropriate educational software. Populations of all countries are gradually forced to learn a homogeneous series of data. In the meantime, they can never develop a capacity to reason or discriminate fact from fiction. The corresponding educational software market grows by 40% every year! Huge multinationals shape out children’s minds until they are made ready for the next step: higher education.
Today, most young adults are expected to attend university. For example, in the USA, 70% of high school graduates register to start a university degree. One third succeed and get out of university with an average debt of 24,000 $. They then need to reimburse this, plus the interest that starts to accumulate as soon as they leave school. In famous universities such as MIT or Harvard, the debt may go up to 200,000 $ and take up to 40 years to get reimbursed. Slavery for life! Most of these young adults would have gone to work right after high school if they had known that 60% of university graduates now work in jobs that require no degree. These should consider themselves lucky, since the unemployment rate has gone up to 22% (2011). Numerous very bright university graduates end up poor and discouraged, while more and more companies would rather employ resourceful non-graduates with experience in several fields.
With every country in the world now close to bankruptcy, things are about to get much worse, thanks to increase pressure from the World Bank, the IMF (International Monetary Fund) and the OCDE (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development) who have agreed with the recommendations of Nicholas Barr, from the London School of Economics. What is happening is the global privatization of all schooling, including higher education. And since most kids now believe that they must go through college or university to succeed in life, their parents and themselves are ready to accept long-term debt enslavement. Barr’s recommendations are now being implemented in Quebec through four basic steps: 1) The introduction of the RPR; 2) The rise in school fees; 3) The increase of loan limits; 4) Stiffer laws to force total repayment. All this is sold to the public in the name of the “right to a higher education”. Soon, almost everybody will have school debts. The State will serve as guarantor and borrowers will pay back fortunes in interest to private bankers.
This educational conspiracy is now becoming global. It was first introduced in Great Britain in 1998. The results were impressive: the average student debt went from 3,000 ₤ in 2004 to 52,000 ₤ in 2012. In Quebec, where university fees are now planned to increase ten-fold in the next five years, the government claims to have no choice in the matter, because universities are severely under-financed. Yet, Quebec universities receive more money per student than in any other Canadian province. The problem is how the money is spent! Universities choose to underfinance teaching and overfinance research. Also, research is no longer fundamental, but mostly commercially oriented. More than 76 % of research budgets go into science projects and less than 8 % into humanities. The plan is to sell useful discoveries to the private sector against cash. Strange priorities for an educational establishment!
The 1999 Bologna Accords forced European universities to follow the K-20 anglo-american model. In 2012, there is now a single planet-wide educational system in which the mission of universities is four-fold: teaching, fundamental research, community service, and commercialization of research results. As they must survive on very tight budgets, universities are forced to accept public-private partnerships. Through donations, multinational corporations sit on the administration boards of most universities and impose their products on campuses (e.g. Coca-Cola, Pepsi, McDonalds), along with their choices of research projects. For example, the Pentagon pays for half of the research funds in US universities. He who pays the piper calls the tune!
Education is also being gradually imposed to all ages. More and more professions require ongoing training from their members. Since society is evolving rapidly, it is important that all employees from multinational corporations learn new and better lies on an ongoing basis. This way, they remain competitive and are classified as “desirable elements” instead of “redundancies”. Lay-offs are common. Those who wish to remain employable must work extra hard. The time is over when one could graduate from university and say: “Phew! No more studies! I’ll never sit in another classroom again!” We might as well get used to it, since the World Bank, UNESCO, and the OECD are actually putting in place Lifelong Learning (LLL) programs. Their official purpose is to maximize “social cohesion, active citizenship, intercultural dialogue, gender equality, personal wellbeing, competitiveness, the spirit of enterprise, and the efficient use of ICTs” (Information and Communication Technologies). An inspiring program! Whatever you do, UNESCO and its persuasive henchmen will eventually find you, reprogram you, and make you ‘benefit’ from their most recent mind-control technologies — probably for a hefty price. But don’t you worry — loans are easy to get!
Once we become conscious of this global agenda, should we continue to encourage young adults to get student loans for higher education? No! Should parents borrow money to help their kids attend college or university? No, especially now that the average household debt has never been higher! Who really wants us to “get an education”? The banksters! Considering the fact that most of what is taught from kindergarten to PhD is mostly mind-controlling lies, we end up paying the big price for educational idiotization and total economic enslavement. The solution becomes obvious: 1) Let us stop using government-sponsored education and its stifling loans; 2) Let us learn skills through experience and apprenticeship; 3) Let us remember that truth is internal. The more I learn to trust my innate knowledge, the less I will need to depend on external ‘help’!
III. Out-of-the-Box Learning Solutions
As we have seen it the two previous articles, it is difficult to do worse than kindergartens and schools when educating one’s child. Even the best alternative schools are caught in the vice of government monopoly. The best solution still remains homeschooling.
Millions of parents across the world have opted for homeschooling and most are not registered teachers. Some researchers have concluded that homeschooled kids are five to ten years ahead of schooled ones and they succeed as well in later life. The most common fear is that such children will become asocial. Such is not the case. They meet other homeschoolers, schooled kids (evenings, weekends, holidays, team sports), and other adults (family, neighbours, museums, libraries, markets, and so on).
In so-called democratic countries, parents can opt for the education of their choice for their children. Even if most parents and school administrators are not aware of this, charters and constitutions guarantee this right. In most countries, schooling is not compulsory, but education is. The school authorities are held responsible for checking that the education being received by each child is adequate. In Quebec, they are required to do so for all children between 5 and 16 years of age. This can vary from one State or province to another. It is best for future homeschooling parents to do some research and contact homeschooling associations before meeting with school authorities and proposing arrangements that will allow the latter to fulfill their mandate.
Obviously, the elite see in an unfavorable light the fact that a child may escape their programming. That is why the media demonize homeschooling and go as far as linking it with cults. For example, in France, MIVILUDES checked 1,119 home-schooled families in 2006. Yet, only 23 were later ordered to send their children to a recognized school.
Homeschooling parents associations have sprouted up in many countries. These parents study the law and meet to share information. They organize social or educational days for kids and parents. They attend conferences where specialists offer lectures on related subject.
Once parents and children have opted for homeschooling, the solutions are unlimited. The worst that can happen is for the authorities to force a child to attend school. However, this kid may decide not to obey their orders. If she refuses to collaborate and she is strong enough to remain calm and resolute under their skilful threats, what can they do against such determination? Nothing!
The main problem with homeschooling is not to show kids how to read, write, and count, but to solve the following problem: what to do with teenagers? These are ready to explore the world with more than maps and books. Home-schooled teens need to find master craftsmen or other inspiring adults to whom they can offer time and energy in exchange for information and skill learning. They become apprentices and choose an adoptive parent-teacher from whom to learn. This type of exchange can last a day, a week, or several months. Payment to the apprentice or the master is possible.
The WWOOF (World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms) is a well-known apprenticeship program found in 52 countries. “Wwoofers” are housed and fed in exchange for volunteer work. Often, they “wwoof” to learn something new — language, culture, construction, gardening, alternative medicine, trade — and to live a new lifestyle for a while. There are several similar programs that allow potential masters to welcome apprentices from all over the world. Each experience becomes a new adventure during which a master learns from her apprentice as much as she is showing him.
Some homeschoolers decide to go directly to university without going first for official prerequisites. Some universities have started accepting them, because they realize that such students are motivated and autonomous. However, remember that university learning is deceitful education at its highest level. Most people attend simply to get a professional diploma. Once they finish university, they have become the prisoners of a legal box — members of a rigidly-controlled professional order. Instead, a person can choose to become the apprentice of any professional or craftsman of her choice. Once her training is finished, she can use her skills outside the system — undeclared. She can even make her own diploma or buy a ready-made one on the Internet! Anything is possible once I decide what is best for me. Then, all I need to do is learn how to work outside the system. (See Personocratia Booklets 5 and 6).
Some discouraged parents will complain: “Homeschooling, you say? But I know nothing about teaching and I have to work. I have no choice but to send my kids to school!” First of all, you do have the choice; otherwise, you lower yourself to the level of an animal. The distinctive feature of human beings is their free will, this power for individual choice that the elite are trying so hard to eradicate. I can choose homeschooling or not. The question remains: Do I want to? If I choose not to, what motivates this choice? Most of the time, it is fear. What am I afraid of? Not having enough time or money? Not being knowledgeable or patient enough? Not getting my promotion, becoming important or famous?
The secret resides in the decision to home-school at all cost while refraining from having expectations or demanding guarantees. Parents and children learn together, and everything is perfect, whatever happens. If need be, the family simplifies its style of living to remain congruent with its values. If I choose to raise children, the idea is to do so as I would have liked to be raised myself.
Once the decision is taken to home-school, partnerships can be organized. In some homeschooling families, one parent takes care of the children from several families, once a week. Every day, a new parent takes over, while the others spend time away from their children to follow courses or work outside. When the number of families is sufficient, parents rent a large room and organize several activities in common. Others prefer to get together and hire a private teacher. The possibilities are endless.
For some parents, homeschooling is not a choice that attracts them. If I refuse to consider it, I tell myself the truth, and admit it to my children by saying: “I am sending you to school because it is the best solution for me. Be aware that you will be shown lies that you will later need to unlearn. You will be programmed to become an obedient robot. It is not true that schools and diplomas are important to succeed in life.” As soon as the child feels ready, you encourage her to become a dropout and an apprentice in something that interests her. At home, you should limit as much as possible all types of media and develop a complicity based on truth and sincerity. This way, parents and kids go down the same deprogramming road for 18 years, until the children reach adulthood.
