I don’t know why it was so obvious to me. School was prison for kids. That’s the way I saw it. But as I looked at my fellow school inmates around me they didn’t seem to notice.
By the time I reached high school I had resigned myself to just getting a passing grade to make my parents happy and move on. My goal: 50%. I didn’t want 51%… if I got that, I was trying too hard. I’d rarely show up. And when I did I’d sit in the back row listening to the horse race reports from the warmup sessions at the track where I would go each evening and, in nearly 100 visits, perhaps recorded a loss at the end of each evening once or twice.
As for school, I’d really only go for the tests. I’d go two hours early and speed read the textbook and make sure I knew just enough to pass. I was quite good at it, to the point where on my final exam of high school I had planned it perfectly so passing the course would give me just enough to graduate and I even knew the exact score I needed on the test to pass: 62%.
It was social studies, which I detested for having to memorize obvious propaganda, but it was easy enough to pass the exam. I’d short-term memorize as much as I could and the dates and places that I couldn’t remember I’d write on my forearm, or my leg, or on any number of cheat sheets I had. It was a two hour exam and there were multiple choice questions worth 70% and essays worth 30%. I went through the multiple choice in about 30 minutes and knew I had enough to get 62% so I didn’t even bother with the essay section. I got up to leave and was informed that there was a “minimum time requirement of 1 hour”.
“A minimum time requirement,” I complained! “But, I’m done!”
“Go sit until the hour is up,” they admonished. Servitude to unworthy authoritarian figures is the real goal of schooling in the west. Angry, and bored for the next 30 minutes, I went on to write some of the more disturbing and outright erroneous essay answer questions probably ever recorded in social studies history.
But, finally the hour was up and I could escape. And I did pass that course and finally was allowed out of child prison.
THAT WAS THEN, THIS IS NOW
Even back in the 1980s school was atrocious. But when I look at what is going on today I can only come to one conclusion: sending your child to public school in the US is child abuse.
Think I’m exagerrating? Hear me out.
Let’s just start with all the injections your child will receive if you force them to go for their government training. The fascist US Government which is one in the same with the pharmaceutical industry continues to want to inject more and more heinous chemicals into your children while they have them under their “care”.
In one instance, a 14-year-old girl was forced to take vaccinations for hepatitis A, seasonal influenza, meningitis, and HPV (Gardasil) in a Detroit area school despite her parents previously-stated opposition to their daughter receiving medical treatments from the school (see story here).
This is just standard operating procedure at most school’s nowadays. “Parents give up their rights when they drop the children off at public school,” said Melinda Harmon, a US Federal Judge, recently.
Giving multiple vaccines is “like a sudden onslaught to the body’s immune system“, according to this Australian Government study. And, when given to youngsters whose immune system hasn’t yet fully formed, it can be catastrophic for health… which is probably the point. Remember, people like Bill Gates, Ted Turner, Al Gore and more are trying to do as much as possible to reduce the global population. Bill Gates has even stated publicly that vaccines are one of the best way to do this.
Now, in a new amendment to California’s Health and Safety Code as it relates to vaccinations will take effect this fall for the 2012-2013 school year, and will require all incoming seventh graders, as well as eighth and twelfth graders for the first year, to get a Tdap booster vaccination for pertussis (whooping cough) before being admitted to school. Mandatory.
“A number of clinical laboratory studies demonstrate that vaccines may cause chronic damage to the G.I. tract, immune system, brain, and other organs,” says Bernard Rimland, Ph.D., an American research psychologist, writer, lecturer and advocate for autistic children.
And, once your child has had their immune system attacked by countless unnecessary and dangerous vaccines (autism has increased 1000% since 1990 due to vaccines) then the government will be looking to give them all manner of other chemicals.
Your child has a little too much energy and doesn’t want to sit and listen to complete morons trying to brainwash them with garbage? They’ll be sent home with a prescription for the highly addictive and dangerous chemical, adderall.
When they aren’t being dumbed down by drugs or having their immune system destroyed by vaccines they have to actually deal with their Lord of the Flies type environment.
Many parents actually are aware of this environment and will support it stating it is good… it will toughen them up, they say. We’re not so sure sending your five, ten or fifteen year old into something that is not that different than a high security prison to avoid getting shivved in the bathroom is the best way to teach them about life. You could just rent Oz for them and save them some terrible emotional scars.
