The drones are coming.
Not the unmanned mechanical kind that we’ve become all too familiar with in recent years, though the drones we’re talking about are every bit as State-programmed as any Predator-like product deployed in any of our numerous, perpetually ongoing overseas military campaigns. While those mechanical tools are generally employed to enhance the power of the American State overseas, a different sort of drone is being deployed by the same State to secure and expand its power here on the home front.
These particular drones are more commonly known as: “Public school students”.
After generations of patient grooming, these living, breathing products of a State-controlled children’s “education” system are now beginning to realize their full potential and use in service of the State that’s molded them into what they are today. After many decades of purposeful programming, these disciples of the State are now being weaponized and deployed in the battle for “gun control” – which, as we should all know by now, is not a battle to remove guns from culture so much as it’s a battle to consolidate all dangerous weapons in the hands of government. (For more on this important distinction, please read What Gun Control Really Means and watch The Evil of Gun Control (1 Minute of Truth VIDEO).)
CNN portrayed the recent deployment of State-programmed Florida High School products this way:
About 100 students who survived last week’s massacre boarded buses and traveled from the Fort Lauderdale area to Tallahassee on Tuesday to push for changes they say could help prevent the next school shooting.
“If you’re not with us, you’re against us, and you’re against saving the lives of innocent children,” Chris Grady, a 19-year-old student, said Tuesday. “And we’re going to be voting you out.”
Way to go, public schools!
Way to teach those critical thinking skills and basic world history!
There can be no doubt that these kids have been well versed and educated in everything from the government-run mass murders in the Ukraine and Soviet Union to the government-run mass murders in Communist Cuba and Cambodia, am I right? I mean, surely these “brave”, deep-thinking High School products are familiar with the ginormous 100,000,000+ body count racked up my mass-murdering governments in the twentieth century alone, right?
Not right at all.
You see, those vital facts just aren’t really “a thing” these days where State-run “education” is concerned.
Not by a long shot.
In Weaponized Ignorance: The Great Success Of Public Schools, we elaborated on how the mission of State-run children’s “education”, despite the appearance of failure, is actually progressing quite nicely and right on time from the State’s perspective:
“Public schools don’t get nearly enough credit for the truly amazing job they’re doing.
In an age when wildly inaccurate things are routinely paraded around as truth, one of the most ridiculously off-base assertions regularly repeated by Americans from all across the political spectrum is the contention that public schools are somehow failing in their mission.
Nothing could be further from the truth.
Public schools are not a failure.
They are a remarkable success.
They are accomplishing exactly what they were designed for: The production of a population that is increasingly ignorant, increasingly proud, increasingly State-dependent, and increasingly anti-Christian.
Put more simply: American public schools are very successfully fulfilling their mission of making malleable cattle out of American people.
Public schools are literally designed to produce successive generations of people who are each more ignorant, more State-centered, and more overtly anti-Christian than the last. So when we look back at 100+ years of steady trending in each of these areas where American culture is concerned, we can see that American public schools have been and continue to be an incredible success.
We now have an “education” system so intensely delusional and committed to the propagation of insanity under the guise of “education” that it cannot even coherently, consistently define such basic terms as “boy” and “girl” anymore…yet we still send our boys and girls to it for an “education”. (For more on this, please read If a system can’t define “boy” and “girl”, we shouldn’t send boys or girls to it for an “education”.)
Why do we do such an idiotic, destructive thing as send our little boys and girls off to be educated by the State in a manner that is so obviously unhinged from reality?
Because we’ve been programmed to do so.
By the State.”
State programming is what State-run “education” is all about.
Always has been.
Always will be.
The whole point of State-run “education” is, from the State’s perspective, to produce generations of people who are each more Statist than the last – more State-centered in their thinking, more State-dependent in their lifestyle, and more anti-Christian in their worldview. That is the long term purpose and vision of State-run “education”.
Always has been.
Always will be.
That’s about as basic and obvious as it gets, really, yet we don’t seem to even notice that basic, obvious truth.
Because we’ve been programmed by the State not to notice such things.
See how that works? (And man does it work!)
