"Next time one of the youths in your family tree is around, ask a few common sense questions. Why? To demonstrate how little they know. You might want to have a stiff drink before you start. You will probably need it."
How many times have each of us heard this familiar question? "How did we get here? How did we become so divided?" The sources of our discord have many fathers - most of them wrongly accused. We are so anxious to lay blame for this mess on our favorite boogie man, all we want to do is point our finger and say, "See! See! It is (fill in the blank) fault!" And the beat goes on.
Well, I am one of those social critics who have been trying to determine the source of the "rot". I have had decades to come to my conclusion. And it is not brain surgery - I am sure many other patriots and citizens have come to the same finding.
It started in the 60's, and the school system was the petri dish which was going to host this rot. The school system was perfect. It had been good for so long, that starting in 1969, who would notice a bit of social engineering being thrown in with the mix? And so it started. The government school system. The system our tax dollars pay for. Slowly, like frogs in slowly boiling water, our kids were being taken from education to indoctrination. And the parents? Most hardly noticed. After all, those were busy times.
Many government schools have done a wonderful job in cranking out useful idiots faster than widgets in a widget factory. How bad is it today? When a cross section of kids were recently asked what our biggest problem with taxes were, many responded with this pile of goo - "The rich are not paying their fair share." What? These are kids coming out of our education system. If they were being taught, they would know the top 10% are paying 70% of the freight. But they are not taught that. Rich are greedy. Rich exploit the poor. They are being taught that socialism is better than capitalism. I present AOC as Exhibit "A" to my argument.
How long will this continue? Until the majority of us wake up and smell the coffee. This "rot" is pervasive. Our kids now believe our country is filled with nothing but "white privilege". We have abused every other race. We owe reparations to everyone. Soon, left unabated, there will be more of these useful idiots than patriots. That day will mark the end of the Great American Experiment.
