Mr. M.B. shared this one, and it's a stunner. It seems that our "friends" at ImperialFedGov, Inc., namely, at the Diabolically Apocalyptic Research Projects Agency want a kind of remote electroencephalogram machine in every classroom to read the brainwaves of future students. There's not much here by way of the article itself, but what is there in this one-paragraph is such a stunner that I have to talk about it:
Here's the paragraph:
According to the benevolent and loving Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, “there is a great need for inexpensive and easy to use neural recording devices” aka a cheap EEG brain electrical activity recording smart app “to allow widespread use by schools and average citizens” because “having EEGs in every classroom in America would engage students in science and technology in a way not previously possible in the field of neuroscience…” and with it “students could record their own brain activity and download the data to their iPad” right there in the classroom! Because the government is all about spending millions on a completely benevolent fostering of a love of science. Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight.
Now why is this so significant?
Well, I probably don't have to spell it out for you.
But I'd like to direct your attention to my and co-author Gary Lawrence's forthcoming book about the Common Core program, Rotten to the (Common) Core. In that book, we present certain little-known evidence that the whole standardized testing industry was linked to the CIA and even to its MK ULTRA mind control program, yet another fascistic legacy of Allen Dulles, Richard Helms, & Ass. (if you'll pardon my bad pun). Most writers on education are unfamiliar with this link for the simple reason that in order to find this connection, one has to read "conspiracy theory" books. In this case, the books in question were from some CIA-whistleblowers.
With that disturbing tidbit in hand, now consider what others and I have been warning about the Common Core mess: it is not the idea of common academic standards that is the problem. The problem is with its computerized, individualized "standardized tests" that will track and slot a student into his or her "most optimal career and life choice" based upon those scores, prepared by anonymous "experts" who prepare the tests for the private corporations who then peddle this snake oil to local schools and feed off the government trough, all while they, and the government, amass an enormous database which in the hands of a corrupt financial system will allow a social engineering and insider trading mechanism - not to mention the creation, perhaps, of enormous amounts of "control files" ... well, you get the picture. It is a potential far beyond Orwell's most nightmarish imaginations.
Now, add to this an EEG machine in every classroom, monitoring the brainwaves of "participants"... the potential for mischief is almost limitless: machines to record could potentially become tools of outright and direct manipulation.
With this little article, the mask is off what is really going on in Amairikuhn Edgykayshun: it isn't really even any more about dumbing down the populace: it's about total and absolute control, nothing more, and nothing less.
It's time to fire the edubblers, and the corporations, peddling this claptrap.
See you on the flip side...
