Public Education, Media, Mediums and Meditative Mush:
Who’s Minding the Minds…and the spirits?
“The love of servitude cannot be established except as a result of a deep, personal revolution in human minds and bodies.
To bring this about we require, among others, the following discoveries and inventions.
First, a greatly improved technique of suggestion—through infant conditioning, and, later with the aid of drugs…
Second, a fully developed science of human differences, enabling government managers to assign any given individual to his or her proper place in the social and economic hierarchy.
Third, a substitute for alcohol and the other narcotics, something less harmful and more pleasure-giving than gin or heroin.
And fourth a foolproof system of eugenics, designed to standardize the human product and so facilitate the task of the managers.”
Aldous Huxley 1946 Foreword to reprint of Brave New World
After several millennia of liberty, Judeo-Christian Western civilization is choosing to return to bondage. The mental and physical bondage is merely an outward expression of the spiritual bondage. And so, we witness world history repeating in America, via the Government Education and Liberal Mediamites.
“They sacrificed to demons, which are not God—
gods they had not known,
gods that recently appeared,
gods your fathers did not fear.
You deserted the Rock, Who fathered you;
You forgot the God Who gave you birth.”
As children and youth studying Ancient civilizations, beginning in Mesopotamia, on toward the Egyptians, Assyrians, Babylonians, Canaanites, Chaldeans, Medes, Persians, Greeks, Romans, Gauls, Asian Dynasties, Druids, Franks, Celts, etc. etc. it always seemed so outlandish that grown adults would worship idols, stones, carvings, planetary bodies, nature, mountains, trees, animals, wind, fire, the Baals, Molechs, Ashtoreths (Aphrodite, Ishtar) and the host of Greek mythological gods; let alone build huge temples to them, offer their children as sacrifices, and their daughters as Vestal virgins or temple prostitutes. (and in some countries still do.)
So we, twentieth century “enlightened ones”, would rationalize this primitive worship by recognizing that we, too, worshiped man made idols of material goods such as houses, cars, vacations, clothes, educational degrees, prestige, status, stuff and things. We determined to set a sentry of awareness to this subtle mode of idol worship and its control over us.
All the while, as Americans were busily distracted with productivity, economic development, manufacturing, sports, progressive education, egotism, technicalism, and the cold wars….a far more deadly enemy was gaining ground in American minds and souls.
It’s hard to fight an enemy one can’t see, particularly if one is blind;
Intellectually egotistic, ignorant and spiritually blind.
Today’s public schools teach children of all ages to practice meditative, mindful awareness and relaxation techniques of Yoga, Zen, ZenTangle, and Tai Chi, along with the incorporation of Eastern and Middle Eastern religious instruction in elementary ages. Simultaneously, Saturday morning media network and PBS youth programming promotes Yoga, meditation, mated with the standard fare of witches, fairies, occult and environmental worship.
21st Century public school instruction, experience, and assessment testing includes extensive education on Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam, and Greek Mythology. In many schools this begins in elementary school. Christianity and Judaism are conveniently omitted or grossly misrepresented. (Ask a confused sixth grader, or graduate of The System…or these spiritual guides* )
How did this happen in America, the land of Liberty under God?
- Remove God from public education via outlawing of school prayer, America’s founding heritage, truth, tradition, values, and absolutes. Instead, propagate a tolerance agenda, and removal of First Amendment rights; removing truthful history, Constitutional government from public curriculums, textbooks, training, and testing; while promoting progressivism’s theory of pure democracy of equalitarianism and majority rule.
- Federal and State governments usurp control of public educational content via 1965 ESEA (Elementary and Secondary Education Act) enslaving Entitlement schemes; establishment of a NON-Constitutional Department of Education (DOE) 1979; then continuing the Leviathan’s choking via each Administration’s new Education overhaul such as: Goals 2000, No Child Left Behind, Race to the Top, funding grants, required accountability testing, and multi-level coercion of corrupting curriculums and longitudinal database tracking heightened under Common Core/ College and Career Ready standardization.
- Demand Incessant Testing and Data tracking for said “Accountability” basing effectiveness on Student performance Outcomes on standardized testing, norm-referenced testing, computer adaptive testing, embedded formative assessments, “educational gaming”, via on-line, and or digital media computer modalities; Turchenko’s and B.F. Skinner’s Teaching Machines.
- Use Student Outcome scores to rank, condition, intimidate, overwhelm, and control students, teachers, administrators, counselors, business, industry, labor, higher education, vendors, politicians, parents, taxpayers and municipalities.
Once upon a time, a Teacher’s primary objective was to transmit knowledge, skills and shared values to his or her students.
Today, a Teacher’s primary objective is to get the students to score well on their Assessment Testing.
Student scores on Assessment testing determine the teacher’s, the school’s, the principle’s, the superintendent’s, and the community’s public school and commercial funding, grants and favors. This is not just about raw test scores; it is also about some cubicle administrator’s or committee’s arbitrary goals of improved achievement from prior testing, rank, or research program etc. Of course none of this is about what we would call objective knowledge for virtuous citizens.
It’s about measuring dispositions, malleability, behaviors, beliefs, values, tolerance, social-emotional collaborative skills, and responses to a host of other progressive ideologies and progressive education theories to link industry and chambers of communism for globalized laborforce development.
Create Stress, Anxiety, and Overwhelm in Students and Teachers.
- Recall that Standardized Testing began in China during the Han Dynasty (206 BC -220 AD) and increased during the Emperor Yang of the Sul Dynasty’s Imperial Examination System—used to sort the civil service administrator jobs. (Sound familiar? All work for The State in an Imperial, Fascist or Marxist system.)
Who has the globe looked to for standardized manufacturing, replication, duplication, modular obedience, and the Rare Earth Elements to produce the technology to master more minions?
Your uploading media devices, Windmills, flat screens, and hybrid cars would not exist without the Bayan Obo mine in Inner Mongolia providing these rare earth elements. (So much for the environmentalism as government windmills hang giant magnets filled with 2 tons of rare earth elements from your neighbor’s field.)
“China’s lack of innovation weighs heavily on the minds of well-educated Chinese. As a nation, China is second to none in its enthusiasm for technology. Yet as one young Chinese pointed out to me, the nation has never produced a Nobel Prize winner.
By the millions, Chinese students work feverishly to hone their quantitative skills in preparation for standardized exams, but their collective striving has limited relevance for the real world. They can complete projects at the direction of others, or copy processes from elsewhere, but they have little sense of themselves as creators or meaning makers. The only meaning they know is the test.”
Bruce G. Hammond in Great Test Scores, Bad Schools: A Cautionary Tale from China; Dr. Hammond is Director of College Counseling at High School Affiliated to Nanjing Normal University in China. (HSANNU)
- Now, that students, teachers and administrators in American public schools are stressed, overwhelmed, and over medicated, attempting to make more “test-taking robots”, they supplement with spiritual Soma drugs, supposedly less toxic than heroin and gin.
In desperation and ignorance American public teachers, counselors, therapists implement the same Eastern, Shamanic, and Pantheistic mysticism, mindful awareness, emptiness, and spiritism on American children who are being standardized for replication, duplication, and iterative labor….just like the Chinese. American Teachers boast of improved testing scores after 15 minutes of Zentangle doodling or Yoga prior to testing.
Recall that China, home of standardized testing and standardized manufacturing and standardized laborforce—the “test-taking robots”, is also the home of mindful meditation, pushing spirit moves Tai Chi, Yoga, Zen, Buddhism, Tao, Confucianism etc. etc.
King Saul was plagued with tormenting spirits, after he gave into egotism and abandoned obedience to God. In desperation for direction, a spiritual guide, King Saul sought the witch of Endor. (I Samuel 28) Disney has been silent about this magical kingdom so far…as they play with witches, fairies, genies, and demons, habituating children to do so, too…and then participate with Ouija boards, séances, horoscope reading, and Halloween. Ugh!
(The Bruder Grimm are turning in their graves at the misuse of their recorded German folklore and didactics intended to teach discernment of evil, not playfulness toward it.)
When Jesus was on earth, He spent a great deal of time relieving folks from demonic spirits…Mary Magdalene, the two men from Gadarenes, the blind and mute…and He empowered His twelve disciples to do so too. (Matthew 10)
Jesus also warned that the spiritual world is not child’s play.
“When an evil spirit comes out of a man,
it goes through arid places seeking rest and does not find it.
Then it says, ‘I will return to the house I left.’
When it arrives, it finds the house swept clean and put in order.
Then it goes and takes seven other spirits more wicked than itself,
and they go in and live there.
And the final condition of that man is worse than the first.”
It’s a small world after all.
What goes around comes around…and around…and around.
- China, recognizing the overwhelming stress, angst, and lack of creativity in its standardized educational system filled with standardized testing for laborforce development is now reducing standardized tests and homework, and eliminating tracking and the student sorting function i.e. “laning”. Schools may only use at most one type of textbook supplementation, with parental consent. Schools and teachers are forbidden to recommend, suggest, or promote any supplemental materials to students. (Gee, how unlike American schools who have aligned with curricular, software, digital media vendors, and cloud computing companies to upload anything into and out of student minds, without parental knowledge, consent or consideration.)
- The Chinese are also recognizing the damage digital media, technology, gaming, and screen time is doing to brain structure, documenting 20% loss of white and gray matter and multitudes of neural and neurochemical abnormalities and addictions.
While the United States Western Education system linked with chambers of business development continue to implement a paradox of polar opposites of Eastern meditation techniques yoked with technology of i-pads, on-line “learning”, gaming, testing, uploading, embedding, assessing, and conforming minds, raping souls, and inviting unclean spirits into children plugged into government education and progressive media.
“It is for freedom that Christ has set us free.
Stand firm then,
and do not allow yourselves to be entangled again by a yoke of bondage.”
“There can be no liberty for a community which lacks the means by which to detect lies.”
Walter Lippmann author of Public Opinion
Most students these days lack the means by which to detect the lies.
Parents– don’t assume your child’s mind, soul and spirit are safe just because you have a “Christian” teacher…or a nice person instructing them on anything. Educators, Administrators and students are so desperate to “please” the overlords that they are willing to pass out enslaving spiritual Soma to those who lack the means to detect the lies.
The spiritual battle has been waging since The Garden and will continue through a few more battles,
“The rest of mankind that were not killed by these plagues
still did not repent of the work of their hands;
they did not stop worshipping demons,
and idols of gold, silver, bronze stone and wood—
idols that cannot see or hear or walk.
Nor did they repent of their murders, their magic arts, their sexual immorality or their thefts.”
Read to the end of The Book…and decide on Whose side of the battle you and your family Stand… or bow.
Should be a clue to possible Spiritual illiteracy when these same folks participate in Halloween. Double ugh. After participating on medical missions, listening to nights of rah, rah ing and chanting…then learning that children from the orphanage down the path had been sacrificed during the rituals the night before…then examining the witch doctor’s eyes….as he departed to collect the food left to feed the dead at gravesites; one grasps the realities of folks who play with spirits…and spirits who play for keeps.
