MORE STUPIDITY FROM EDUBABBLE
This one appeared on RT, and in the wake of yesterday's blog about the US Air Force sacking certain nuclear weapons crews for what was apparently just plain stupidity (not to mention an apparent collapse of military discipline), I thought it appropriate to follow up with another brief blog about how ridiculous the "no tolerance" policy towards weapons in our school systems has become:
Chicago teacher suspended for showing tools to students
That's right, you read it here, or rather, on Russia Today, first: wrenches, hammers, screwdrivers, and presumably drills, pliers, miter boxes, saws, screws, nails, Allen wrenches, t-sqaures (heck, why not the whole drafting toolbox too) and all manner of toolbox evil now constitute weapons in the all-seeing, omnicompetent wisdom of some nitwit bureaucrats and administrators in the Chicago school system. One wonders: if there are such things as shop classes any more in American schools, how they're going to justify the presence of drill presses, band saws, circular saws, and a whole host of evil things that lurk in the secret arsenals of high school shop and home economics classes (if there even are such things any more...frankly, I doubt it).
This is why America is now the disfunctional empire: it's impossible to fire anyone this stupid(just look at Congress, and think McConnell, Reed, Pelosi, Boehner, Boxer, or Feinstein here), while the competent - like this veteran teacher - are actually punished. A society this screwed up, to paraphrase one of its icons, cannot "long endure."
And the result is equally culturally damning: to defend themselves, the competent have to resort to the corrupt courts, where they may or may not prevail. If they prevail, then they are paid, and in this case, the cost of their victory are passed on to the taxpayers that fund the whole stinking mess to begin with. If they do not prevail, then the idiocracy wins a victory, and is emboldened to ever more stupidity.
All this simply boils down to the loss of common sense, and the inability of bureaucrats to spell out every last detail for every possible contingency in their policy books, policy books that, incidentally, continue to grow to the point that teachers must spend more time wading through the morass contained in them than they do teaching actual content (a lesson they learned well when in their teachers' colleges and edubabble departments, where they learned more about "method" and "lesson planning" and "team work" and "educational psychology" than they did about the actual content of the subjects they want to teach, old-fashioned passe things like Enlish grammar and literature, biology, geometry...you know, "stuff like that").
There's a geopolitical angle to all this rising idiocracy, too, as I attempted to point out yesterday: with stupidity on the rise in the Western world, with the USA leading the lemming-like charge off the cliffs of idiocy, a technological military cannot ultimately be sustained, and hence the very basis of American power is being eroded by the education system itself and the political hacks its supports and is supported by. Rest assured, you won't find other nations, especially Russia, taking this suicide medicine. They probably still have real schools, with a majority of competent teachers, over there. But then again, they gave us Pavlov. It remained for Americans to turn the salivation into a pedagogical method involving bells, whistles, and "methods."
See you on the flip side.

Do you really believe that light can travel through a vacuum without losing energy? You you really believe that interstellar space is a perfect vacuum without gas or dust?
Do you really belive that redshifted spectra from stars are the result of doppler effect of acceleration away from us?
Do you want to buy a bridge in Brooklyn? I can get it for you cheap.
I conclude from observaton and understanding and dharma as premises
that there are stars so far away that their light cannot reach us.
Entropy? We built some steam engines so we can call what we learned from building steam engines the “science of thermodynamics”.
We can define the nature of the universe by describing it relative to our steam engine experience. Yeah, right.
Current theory of the sun says that higher order of atoms are being produced as the material of the sun accellerates toward the center of the star at near light speed.
This may seem strange .When the big purple dinosaur came around in the 80s
as a butterfly flaps its wings a hurricane may arise.so becomes the first stages of political correctness in the mindset of the young impressionable mind.common sense started to crumble in a sea of relativism and the feud of definitions.
Speaking of education, my daughter has a relief Russian teacher that is taking her year 12 physics and applied maths classes, as her full time teacher has just recenty taken long term maternity leave.
She came home a few days ago and asked me if I had ever heard of ‘COLD FUSION’ hahaha!!! No kidding!
Instruction in the theoretical principles of cold fusion is not part of the standard year 12 physics curriculum so I’m told, but apparantly Ms Federova is prepared to instruct any year 12 student that wishes to learn more about it in their spare time lol.
My daughter is looking forward to seeing what suprises the maths classes will bring 🙂
Aether Physics is in the syllabus! But only as a side note for how Physics had ‘progressed’.
Edgamakachon again, we’ll thank goodness we have “spellcheck”, that’s all I can say.
Yahweh the Two Faced God shows his pathetic head again, if only the world could wake up to this “created” piece of social engineering.
Speaking of social engineering, notice that Benny Nat (bibi) has been throwing down Vodka shots with Putin, I’d like to be the interpreter, can you imagine?
if one is not yet seen/heard George Carlin’s searing take on the failing educational system:
They have always been stupid jerks and are afraid of anybody that thinks. They what to reduce us all to their level of ignorance. Don’t count on China and Russia if the higher education is in the hands of for profit colleges they will be producing their share of marching morons as well. We all going to hell anyway so why think. What Me Worry.
In principle, evil & falsehood are like a morning fog. When enough good people DO something & move into en-lighten-ment, darkness will dissippate & melt away, as if it hadn’t been there in the first place. Evil requires an extremely high degree of latitude to succeed – an over-arching control of media, education, medicine, agriculture, science etc., etc. “IT,” like a fungi, has its own neurological “SYSTEM.” Light & truth however, dispel much greater volumes of darkness than darkness can sustain. Vampires & fungi too, return to their coffins at the dawning of a new day.
“Thinking,” however, is imperative, because as American economic philosopher & author of Progress & Poverty, Henry George writes, “Man must think, because he alone can act.” Man must have a desire to know – a desire to think. This is the mental firewall – that too many endeavor not to think & attack messengers who would cause them to think. But as to the euphemism of “higher education” to which you refer, “I have never let my schooling (formal indoctrination) interfere with my education (learning & capacity for thinking & doing with an independent moral & ethical volition).” Mark Twain
Once truth takes hold, it moves like a prairie grass fire. Keep the faith. In the spiritual realm, a mass of critical truth, acts like an EMP. To regain vision & dissipate the darkening effects of illumination, we must strive for en-lighten-ment. As far as we are able & prepared as individuals, we must make of ourselves vessels for The Light. Only THIS Light within, can dispel the darkness of illumination and its correlative loss of vision. The people perish from a loss of vision, not sight.
Wanted to get this in about the speeding up of consumption[purchasing platforms designed to ease the speed with which to consume]. Now we don’t even take ownership of things we consume. New incantations of what we buy are less tangible, reducing the friction associated with purchasing, using, and disposing of objects. For instance, instead of buying cars, we lease them. Instead of purchasing homes, we sign mortgages. I is if, we are coming full cicle, to the era of lords and vassals; we no longer own land at all, but simply pay for the right to use it. We are not building a “new commons” together, where everything is shared; we are turning life into a set of “monetizable experiences” where the “meter is always …on”.
To remeber who “they” are;
is the key –
method to madness.
If we are the host of the Breakaway Civilization and the military arm of the banksters, why are they turning us into the idiocracy or allowing us to be turned into the idiocracy? We’ve already been conquered and do their bidding unquestioningly. Is the experiment to turn the US lab rats into complete imbeciles just too much fun to pass up? What a spectacle it must be. I wonder if the Russians and Chinese are even planning on the US being a threat in ten years time. Did they cut a deal with the banksters to turn us into imbeciles and then hand us over on a platter?
And then you get back into the Universe being a computer game. Is turning the opponent’s nation into imbeciles using mind control, culture rot and food one of the many options a gamer has for conquest, along with military invasion, immigration invasion, religion invasion, ideology invasion or commercial invasion?
Or, possibly the zealots for the new global religion are being prepped here in America– stripped of independent thinking and emptied of real beliefs so they can one day be programmed into becoming the unwavering militants of this new religion. But then they will still be too stupid to march in a straight line or clean a rifle. Yet, maybe just stupid enough to take orders from a robot or a giant projected image bounced off a cloud.
A real quandary for sure.
The gangster cult loves idiots. In this way, they can feel justified in their self-serving, pre-conceived contempt for the masses. They are definately a “breed” apart – many of their observations, a simple projection of their own neurosis & psycho-pathologies. See, Puzzling People: Labyrinth of The Psychopath, by Irish born author Thomas Sheridan.
I agree Frankie: I think much of it is in preparation for a new religion, or a coopting of the old ones (already well underway)
in my own humble opinion, Dr. Farrell, I believe those who are coopting old religions/creating a new one(s) are the descendents of those who gave us religions to begin with-
and, yes, it’s well underway- question is: can we stop this?- yes, but only if enough people will be willing to open their eyes and latch onto the hundreth monkey syndrom- obviously you and most readers on this website are aware of what is at stake (otherwise we commentators wouldn’t be here)-
anyway, Dr. Farrell, you know yourself that all religions have been almost from their very inception coopted (politicized) and the minute someone adheres to a religious belief system of some sort they are worshiping a political agenda- but I digress for now-
take care of yourself, Dr. Farrell- we need you- regards-
Larry in Germany
I sense a book in the pipeline Dr. Farrell. You have alluded to this quite a few times on various podcasts and articles.
