Here is another important article from Bruce Deitrick Price about the education system:
The date is 1900. Professor John Dewey and his cadre of “Progressives” launch an ambitious scheme to transform the country. They want a more collectivist society. For convenience, let’s call their goal European Socialism.
However, the United States is hostile to Socialism and Communism for another hundred years. Beatrice Webb, founder of the Fabian Society in London, decrees that the word “Socialism” shouldn’t be used in America. The recommended euphemism is “Progressivism” and, later on, Liberalism.
Socialism, as that term is generally understood, is what Dewey plans for us, but he can’t say it. He and his gang must dissemble at every turn. They have to lie and, little by little, work outside the law.
Fabian Socialists willingly accept a subversive role. They operate as saboteurs, like termites eating the foundations of a house. These secret Socialists become “agents of influence” and “change agents” — all synonyms for the same sneaks. They will change your world whether you like it or not.
Note that these people are now conspirators working in secret. They can’t help being dishonest. In education, they are changing your children in ways they have not explained and you have not approved. They promise to “educate” your kid, but what they mean is that they will indoctrinate your kid.
By 1925, a great deal of deception is normal. Tangled webs are woven. Secret plots unfold in all directions. In K-12, the legacy going forward is criminal. The DNA of the American Education Establishment is now fully formed. We are stuck with it until this day.
Of course, these plotters do not think of themselves as criminals. They think of themselves as a cultural and intellectual avant-garde. They are the high priests of a new society, which Aldous Huxley satirized in Brave New World (1931).
