A society that is unwilling to make constant demands on itself is destined to fail. To nullify competitiveness, discourage personal growth, ruin family values and strengthen dependence and subordination to the State on the part of the new generations, is the strategy to be followed by American politicians and progressive activists.
Forming a family in the United States today is an act of courage, it is not easy to take on the task of raising a child knowing that in every school they will try to brainwash them to turn them against you. Children have become the new victims of the cultural war that the country is facing. Those times when the little ones at home were excluded from political debates have become extinct, now infants are barracked in classrooms to receive progressive ideological pills, which teach them to hate America, to rebel against their parents, and to become little revolutionaries, all this before they learn to add and subtract; and no, this is not at all a conspiracy theory or an exaggeration.
Cecily Myart-Cruz, president of United Teachers Los Angeles (UTLA), told LA Magazine that “It’s OK that our babies may not have learned all their times’ tables. They learned resilience. They learned survival. They learned critical-thinking skills. They know the difference between a riot and a protest. They know the words insurrection and coup.”
The statements of the head of the UTLA, Myart-Cruz, are not an isolated fact, a few weeks ago the progressive governor of Oregon, Kate Brown, privately signed a bill that eliminates the requirement for high school students to demonstrate proficiency in reading, writing and math before graduating; that is, they can graduate from high school without knowing how to read, write or do math; but apparently if they know the word insurrection, they have enough knowledge to go to college.

According to Brown’s office, this initiative would have been promoted with the purpose of “benefiting” the state’s “black, Latino, Native American, Asian, Pacific Islander, tribal and students of color,” which in a way implies that non-white people are unable to perform simple tasks such as adding or writing.
With the growth of critical race theory, gender ideology, and the constant demonization of the United States, teachers who reject the racism under which the country’s blacks and whites are being segregated and antagonized have also been purged from the schools.
In Louisiana, for example, teacher Jonathan Koeppel was fired after refusing to teach critical race theory and gender identity ideology.
The teacher who is now preparing a lawsuit against the school district said he began to notice “I started noticing kids talking about political topics that were being brought up in other classes by their teachers;” his constant social media posts and displays of concern about school indoctrination put him out of a job.
Discouraging statistics for free-market ideas
The breakthrough of leftist ideologies in the United States has been overwhelming in recent years, according to a YouGov poll 70 % of young Americans would vote for a socialist, after years of constant indoctrination in schools the younger ones are more attracted towards leftist ideas, while approval or support for capitalism has been drastically decreasing even in younger Republicans; and if we go to the university level, at Harvard’s Faculty of Arts and Sciences alone, 80 % consider themselves “liberal,” while only 1 % consider themselves “conservative.”
Progressive supremacy in the classroom is indisputable, and this should be of concern not only to American parents but also to anyone who stands for pluralism, democracy and freedom of expression, regardless of their political or ideological leanings.
The shaping of future progressive revolutionaries and parasites of the State
One does not need to be very intelligent to deduce and understand that a person who does not possess the ability to read, write or add and subtract, will surely have a rather miserable future; someone incapable of executing such elementary tasks will hardly be able to find a job, create a company, or have any goal or ambition for their life. The only thing a person who has been taught from a young age to hate, to envy, to “rebel” against the system, and without any technical and/or scientific knowledge or skills, will be able to aspire to is to become a parasite of the State or to commit crimes to survive.
Unfortunately during the last decades, different Overton windows have been broken to penetrate more and more into weaker minds and ensure the submission of the population through infantile indoctrination; every State, party, collective, politician, and activist that advocates socialism and “redistribution of wealth,” knows that an ignorant population, without skills, abilities, and without economic power, is and will be forever an impressionable mass that they can agitate to dominate a nation without resistance.
If the brainwashing to which American children are being exposed today is not radically intervened, this cancer will continue to spread throughout the Western nations, then the totalitarian and vertical States will be consolidated, where politicians rule and the people obey.
Without education, training, values, discipline and competence there is no future, neither for our children nor for humanity.
