|Here’s the scary truth: the propagandist’s playbook isn’t any different from country to country. Their control tactics stay the same regardless of language or technology.
“Patriotism should be the dominant value of our people,” said Aleksandr Kharichev, another Kremlin official, at a teacher workshop hosted by Russia’s education ministry. He defined patriotism as “readiness to give one’s life for the Motherland.”
Creepy, isn’t it?
The keenest puppet masters understand that if you want to change the fabric and future of a nation, you start with the kids.
And while we don’t exactly have our government mandating classes on “traditional values” or “patriotism,” we have our own problems.
I talk a lot about how bad the government is at giving our kids a good education. But for once, I want to talk about something it’s doing well: that is, stripping kids of their agency, critical thinking skills, and ability to reason.
These concepts are being replaced by shallow lessons in social justice, critical race theory, and “speaking your truth.”
Here’s why: the more worked up we are about our identities, victimhood, or how American history is, like, totally racist, the less apt we are to notice our actual rights being taken away.
Our civil liberties have been reduced to rubble over the last few decades. Our money manipulated until it’s worthless. Our ability to live free from goverment control stripped away.
And rather than fighting back, many Americans choose to call for even more tyrannical control over our lives.
If you’re like me, fed up with being pushed around by the government, don’t side with the aggressors. Do something radical. Break free from the public school system and its propagandists.
If that means pulling your kids out and homeschooling, awesome! We’re ready with a whole bunch of books and other content to bolster your curriculum with facts that stand the test of time.
