Is Indoctrination Not Education?


It seems that Rush Limbaugh agrees with my ideas regarding the indoctrination of tiny school children and older students in colleges and universities. At least he agrees that university graduates have been saturated with Liberal ideology.

I go even further. From an early age children are taught such things as "You must always share" and "Do not question what your teacher tells you" and "If you are good you will be rewarded but if you are bad you will be punished." That is indoctrination.

Necessary child guidance? Preparation for future adult socialization?

When the teacher shows you why 2 objects when added to 2 other objects becomes a total of 4 objects, that teacher is educating you in the fundamentals of mathematics.

When the teacher tells you that all people are 'created' equal, the teacher is indoctrinating you, not in simple social interactions but in 'Christian' social interactions. And when a Christian Sunday School teacher tells one that, "Red and yellow, black and white; all are precious in His sight." that teacher is indoctrinating you into the mysticism of Christianity.

Some things children are taught is good, such as scientific educational facts. Other things (religious dogma) are harmful indoctrination.

The preceding is so self-evident and so clear that I am at a loss as to why so many people still so stubbornly deny it.

Why do I have the feeling that I have written all that before? Here in this blog. Has it come to that then? Am I running out of things to inform, interest, and to reveal about myself? That is what I am doing by continuing this online journal, diary, or whatever one might label it.

Why am I seeking to explain myself, over and over again, day after day, when I know that very few people are reading the stuff? Well, I suppose it is because I grow tired of watching all the 'House md' reruns and need to interact somehow with others. Could that be it?


It's more complicated than that.


American Airlines saved $40,000 in 1987 by eliminating one olive from each salad served in first class.


On this day, July 18, in 1984, James Oliver Huberty opened fire in a crowded McDonald's restaurant in San Ysidro, California, killing 21 people and wounding 19 others with several automatic weapons. Minutes earlier, Huberty had left home, telling his wife, "I'm going hunting... hunting for humans."

Bringing several of these guns, including a 9mm automatic pistol and semiautomatic rifle, into the McDonald's two miles from the Mexican border, Huberty demanded that the 45 patrons get on the floor. He then walked around the restaurant, calmly shooting people.

He killed 20 in the first ten minutes, including four who tried to escape. There were so many shots fired that the police first assumed that there was more than one gunman inside.

A SWAT TEAM marksman sent a shot through Huberty's chest and killed him.

Education is indoctrination if you're white - subjugation if you're black.
