“Our schools have been scientifically designed to prevent over-education from happening. The average American [should be] content with their humble role in life because they’re not tempted to think about any other role.” This is a quote from the United States Commissioner of Education, 1889. So there you have it, out of the mouth of the head government honcho, William Harris, over a hundred years ago. Warning the American citizenry to accept the mediocrity of non-thinking and non-resistant, to whatever the political powers dish and dole out to those they rule over.

Do you know anyone over-educated? I know people who are over-indoctrinated beyond the capacity to think, but not over-educated. A rather unusual remark coming from a top educator. However, education in this country is sadly lacking on an enormous scale. Students graduating from high school not knowing who’s in the White House, but they know who occupies the pineapple house under the sea. They do not know the top man dictating socialism. And they are graduating from college, all dressed up with nowhere to go, except perhaps to a fast food place. After receiving all those government grants, [stolen] money, under the illusion they are getting an education, they are clueless about life and what it takes to operate in the free-enterprise system.

I personally believe I received a lot of education from my parents and grandparents, however I grew up in the thirties. Since that era the parents of children of today have been brainwashed and indoctrinated, therefore they can’t educate their children. Not everyone, but the majority. So where does one turn? Even in homeschooling, the State requires schooling from textbooks filled with communist propaganda.

This does not mean one cannot acquire an education. There is plenty of material available to learn from and a few obscure schools in this country where one can acquire an education. Hence this series of articles about such a school, located in a remote area of northeast Tennessee. They only accept a limited number of students. Therefore any one interested, now is the time to contact for next year’s school term. The address is: 519 Shingletown Road, Mountain City, Tennessee, 37683, phone 423-727-4905, or one can email at, for information about the school.

Aside from their usual study courses, the high school students are taught self-responsibility, self-control and self-respect for themselves and the property of others. It’s a school that promotes the acquisition of knowledge, as opposed to the verbiage-in, verbiage-out absurd stuff dished out in public schools. A child’s mind is a terrible thing to waste.

Each day it is becoming more apparent, this once-great nation is on the verge of collapse. The economy is tanking and way of life as we once knew it, is rapidly slipping away. The Transformation of America, promised by the current President in his campaign speeches has already occured. Not that he caused all of it, because the downward spiral was already in motion when he took office.

As we look around and listen to the jack hammer rhetoric of the managed news media, we know the crisis is upon us. Already candidates campaigning for the 2012 election, promoting the idea we can vote ourselves out of the dilemma we voted ourselves into. No, that cannot be, we must re-think our way out, by seeking truth, and not propaganda. Truth is that which is and the absence of a lie. We learn from Orwell’s 1984 and Animal Farm, how the very language we use has been converted to convey what those determind to destroy this country want us to believe.

Every hour on the hour we hear, deficit, deficit, deficit and bankruptcy in reference to the economy. When in essence the real deficit is in the way we think, and the propagandi we swallow line, hook and sinker. If there is any chance of recovery from the ditch we are in, it must come from a change in our mind-set, a change in the hearts and minds of the American people. We must re-educate ourselves to understand the meaning of freedom and private property ownership, and return to the free-enterprise, capitalistic system as a way of life which made this country great from its beginning. That which made this country the envy of the world, changed and is now so despised by the rest of the world.

But our problem is not what the rest of the world thinks, it’s the reality of what Lenin told us in 1924, when he said America would collapse from within and fall into Communism like overripe fruit. His prophecy has turned out to be the way it is, because the majority rule has voted us into the conditions we face today.

After being at the Patriots Day celebration, I realized there are some out there who understand the meaning of Freedom, and comprehend the reality of what is happening in this country today, but not enough to turn the tide at this late date. And it will not be reversed with bullets and ballots, but will only come from the hearts and minds of the American people, to re-think the problem, and take action in their individual lives to clean up the act.

How does one remove alligators from the pond? Very carefully, one at a time. The collectivist mentality must be removed from the people and a return to individual responsibility, with that “Root, hog, or die” mindset, pervasive in the hearts and minds of the early founding fathers.

The weekend musket firing by shooting holes in the Communist Manifesto was symbolic. This country has embraced, line, hook and sinker the philosophy of Karl Marx in his Communist Manifesto. We must destroy his notion of totalitarianism, of control by centralized government, set forth in his document. And we can’t vote ourselves out of it. We must treat it like the alligators in the pond, very carefully, one individual at a time must enlighten themselves with a determination to change the tide in their lives, minds and hearts.

We must take the stance Reagan did, when he demanded, “Tear down that wall.” It is the wall of ignorance, misunderstanding, apathy and unwillingness to do that which is required to return to a life in this country as we once knew it, which must be addressed by every individual in this country. Because every individual is adversely affected in one way or another, by the conditions we now face. There are no magic bullets. We must talk the talk and walk the walk to recover from the mess of things we ourselves have made.

This is the fourth and concluding article in this series. I only hope the information will be of help to those seeking help with education of their children. From the former President of the American Federation of Teachers, Albert Shanker, in the Wall Street Journal: “It is time to admit that public education operates like a planned economy. It’s a bureaucratic system where everybody’s role is spelled out in advance, and there are few incentives for innovation and productivity. It’s not a surprise when a school system doesn’t improve. It more resembles a Communist economy than our own market economy.”
