The Dumbing Down of America – By Design | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED

The Dumbing Down of America – By Design

The most obvious example of how Americans have been dumbed down is through this nation’s failed public education system. At one time not that long ago America reigned supreme as a leading model for the rest of the world providing the best quality free public K-12 education system on the planet. But over the last many decades while much of the rest of the world has been passing us by, it seems an insidious federal agenda has been implemented to condition and brainwash a population of mindless, robotic citizenry that simply does what it’s told, and of course the brainwashing commences early in America’s schools.

But prior to delving into the many ways we’ve been duped and dumbed down through the years, a cold hard look at the devastating result seems very much in order here. With doom and gloom warnings of impending collapse, the US economy is floundering still mired in recession, emaciated and cut off from life support, as a consequence of waging too many wars around the world (be they the longest running costly defeats in US history or the fast rising dirty little Special Ops wars secretly raging on every corner of the globe or Obama’s personal favorite, state sponsored terrorism from drone-filled skies). As a pawn to the military industrial complex, the US government has chosen permanent war over its own people. This treasonous decision has decimated the middle class and created a college educated indentured class struggling in heavy debt to find any means to stay afloat. With an outsourced, now vanished manufacturing base, upward mobility and the American dream have become tragic casualties of modern life, now a sad, nostalgic bygone reminder of the once greatness of America.

With the US the biggest debtor nation on earth, Americans are drowning in debt as hopelessly trapped collateral damage from a rapidly sinking, overextended Empire desperate to remain the sole global superpower even if it means death to the whole human race. At home the hapless American population has become increasingly the victim of its own government’s tyranny and oppression under the constant roving eyeball of criminal surveillance and a brutal militarized security state, leaving its citizens defenseless without any security, liberty, freedom or place to hide.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I do marketing for a living; and it is frightening to listen to people who may well have a high school education, and diploma, but appear to have learned nothing from it, during the time they were in school.

I was very lucky to have come from a very ordinary middle class background, but the importance of language, critical thinking, and education, were very strongly impressed upon me.

Parents today need to embrace those values, because it is not just the schools which have the responsibility to teach our young; it is definitely the parents as well.

My brother and sister-in-law were very smart about how they raised their two girls; there was a lot of focus on homework, and accomplishing their tasks. And when my sister-in-law went back for her Masters in nursing, all three would gather around the dining room table to study.

Both young women now have excellent careers, and are very accomplished sweet, whole, self-realized adults.
