Something to read over the weekend...

Charles Krauthammer has written a fantastic analysis of the way the redistributionists are fighting to achieve what socialism failed to do. Using the new religious fervor of environmentalists, the left is slowly but surly moving towards the destruction of our economic system. No beards, or guerrillas, no fighting in the jungle, no demonstrations. The new radicals are wearing suits and ties, are clean cut and use their connections among the "intellectual elites" to move in the direction of a world bureaucracy running every aspect of our lives.

Having been involved in the field of education, I am aware of attempts by all kind of organizations to infuse their ideologies into the classroom. The motto for many of those ideologues could have easily been "Brainwashing is Fundamental." As a supervisor I usually took the magazines, posters and videos I received in the mail and threw them in garbage. Videos I not only threw away, but made sure that they were destroyed prior to their disposal. Teachers are always looking for a "day off" when they can just sit in the back of the room and show a movie, regardless of content or quality.

Well, now Michelle Malkin reports about a project between Hollywood and Marxist propagandist Howard Zinn that will be shown on the History Channel based on his "A People's History of the United States." The first victim of this documentary will be the truth.

I have no doubt that thousands of teachers will record this program and show it to millions of children. The process of brainwashing and indoctrination is starting earlier and earlier; and we the taxpayers are paying for it. The process will culminate in college, where parents will pay hundreds of thousands of dollars to make sure that their children are educated to despise what our forefathers worked so hard to achieve.
