Bertrand Russell & Bret McAtee on Education

‎“The subject will make great strides when it is taken up by scientists under a scientific dictatorship….The social psychologists of the future will have a number of classes of school children on whom they will try different methods of producing an unshakable conviction that snow is black. Various results will soon be arrived at. First, that the influence of home is obstructive. Second, that not much can be done unless indoctrination begins before the age of ten. Third, that verses set to music and repeatedly intoned are very effective. Fourth, that the opinion that snow is white must be held to show a morbid taste for eccentricity. But I anticipate. It is for future scientists to make these maxims precise and discover exactly how much it costs per head to make children believe that snow is black, and how much less it would cost to make them believe it is dark gray.”

Russell concluded with a warning:

“Although this science will be diligently studied, it will be rigidly confined to the governing class. The populace will not be allowed to know how its convictions were generated. When the technique has been perfected, every government that has been in charge of education for a generation will be able to control its subjects securely without the need of armies or policemen.”

Bertrand Russell
20th Century Cultural Marxist

Our government has been in charge of education for over one hundred years and it simply is the fact that most Americans have the convictions they have because of the propaganda swallowed in government schools. This is true of Christians as well, but with Christians the crime is doubled because Christians then baptize their pagan convictions with a thin coating of “Christianity.”

Government education from pre-schools to University is not about educating people. It is about controlling the populace. Government education is not about learning, it is about creating a citizenry that is shaped to think the way the state desires. Government education is not about disseminating intelligence, it is about creating cogs that will fit in the state determined culture — cogs that are smart enough to be an effective drone work force, but not smart enough to think critically and analytically for themselves. Government education is not about personal growth for the student, it is about Corporate America producing a generation that will be consumers for their products. Sadly, all that I’ve just said about Government education is also largely true of the agenda of even conservative Churches today.

The quote by Russell above could be re-produced repeatedly by people who are in the know. If you’ve been trained in Government Schools, you simply must acknowledge what they have done to you and determine that you are going to begin to think outside your previous thought patterns.

Take the blue pill. You’ll be glad you did.

Your biggest help to me dear reader will be to often remind me that God is Sovereign and that all that is, is because it pleases him.

    When an oppenent declares, “I will not come over to your side,” I calmly say, Your child belongs to us already … What are you? You will pass on. Your descendants, however, now stand in the new camp. In a short time they will know nothing else but this new community.

    This new Reich will give its youth to no one, but will itself take youth and give to youth its own education and its own upbringing.

  2. “…most Americans have the convictions they have because of the propaganda swallowed in government schools. This is true of Christians as well, but with Christians the crime is doubled because Christians then baptize their pagan convictions with a thin coating of “Christianity.””

    How true! Had Christians obeyed God and refused to be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of their minds, teaching their children the same, resisting the devil and his “education” (both by state-run public schools, t.v., radio, and by lukewarm/apostate seminarians who are hired by denomination$ to smooth over the judgments of God upon sin), the majority wouldn’t be mocking the conspiracy “theorists”, but would instead be exposing the multifaceted effort by these pigs to rob the public of truth. Keep the public stupid, and misinformed, and they have a much easier time tyranizing them while profiting from their ignorance.

  3. Doesn’t the above remind you of how the media speaks against “conspiracy theorists”, AS IF ANY theory about a conspiracy is always totally foolish? Conspirators have ALWAYS existed, they as much a fact of life in the world as thieves, liars, murderers, and air. Theories can all be proven or disproved by an unbiased investigation of the facts. But the blanket condemnation of conspiracy theories halts the investigation of facts for fear of ridicule. Only a weak mind cowers to such empty intimidation, and that is precisely what the powers that be intend to produce so they may remain in power unchallenged.
