John Taylor Gatto on Schooling and the New World Order

How many of you knew that John Taylor Gatto was awake to secret societies and the NWO?

Today on my channel, I shared some more of his wisdom.

John Taylor Gatto’s Stark Warning Against Common Core

As I was reading the essays in the back of The Underground History of American Education yesterday, I realized that not only was John Gatto awake to the history of compulsory schooling, he was awake to a lot of things.

Take Common Core for example. Mr. Gatto’s criticism of it goes far beyond the faulty academics of it and gets to the root of the problem – its purpose.

My Response to NPR’s “How Should We Regulate Homeschooling” Podcast

I never post videos on Saturdays, but today’s going to be different.

After stewing over NPR’s “How Should We Regulate Homeschooling” podcast all day yesterday (after many, many people sent it to me), I finally caved in at 12:39am and “let my feelings out” via a video.

To sum up my mood during the recording, four words bring it together nicely – I HAVE HAD ENOUGH.

Introducing the Hegelian Dialectic and Compulsory Schooling Series…

Happy New Year, everyone! I’m so glad 2019 is over. 😭

Today on my channel I shared a video from the Patreon archives: the first in a series about the Hegelian Dialectic and Compulsory Schooling.

If you aren’t sure what the Hegelian Dialectic is, simply put, think of problem-reaction-solution.

There is so much more behind schooling than the ruse of education. Schooling was/is simply a means to a pre-planned end.

Have a great first day of 2020. 🙂

There Are Worse Things Than a Child Missing School

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas! It went by so quickly.

Time for me to get back to the nitty gritty and ruffle some feathers. 🤷‍♀️ I’ve been thinking a lot about the attitude people have when they see kids that aren’t in school, but should be.

It’s almost an automatic assumption that they must be up to no good, but I’ve got a different take.

A History Lesson and a Wake-Up Call

Do the words “Operation Mockingbird” and “Smith-Mundt Modernization Act” mean anything to you?

They should.

They happen to be the two reasons you should never trust mainstream media (or most movies and documentaries) for information, whether for homeschooling or life, in general.

If this is new to you, and you’re ready for a rabbit hole, watch my latest video.

Schools Don’t Teach Critical Thinking. Here’s Why.

“Critical thinking” is one of the education system’s favorite buzz phrases, particularly since the introduction of Common Core. Ironic, isn’t it?

The problem is, the more we see critical thinking mentioned, the less we see evidence of its use in society. Why?? Well, the answer to that is simple. The education system does NOT teach critical thinking, despite its claims, and there’s a reason for that.

Scientism, Hypothetical History, and Homeschooling

Have you ever heard of scientism? Scientism is when science becomes a religion for some, and when certain topics become taboo to question. It’s when scientists declare “the science is settled” when in fact, true science is NEVER settled.

It’s when social media platforms shut down certain subjects in an effort to suppress debate.

It’s when scientific theories that have never been proven are pushed by authorities and mainstream science as being 100% true.

Unfortunately, most of the science being taught to children today falls under this category. Even homeschoolers aren’t always safe.

The same holds true for what I call hypothetical history. There’s much about history, especially ancient history, that we really don’t have concrete answers to, yet we are consistently having only one point-of-view impressed upon us – that which is most convenient to the status quo.

As homeschool parents, it is up to us to teach our children the critical thinking skills that are sorely lacking in the world today. It’s up to us to teach our children to seek out and weigh ALL evidence, not just that which is handed to us.

In today’s world, this has become more important than ever.

Are you up to the task?

It’s Not the Village’s Job to Raise Your Child

Once upon a time, a “village” was a community of closely knit individuals and extended family. They were people who lived life together and genuinely cared about one another. Since they spent so much time together, they were often beside other families as their children grew.

For all intents and purposes, that village is gone.

Today, more than ever, the “it takes a village…” adage is pushed more than ever…especially by collectivists. Unfortunately, the village they’re referring to doesn’t even closely resemble the village that saying actually refers to. It’s an entirely different entity altogether, and you’d do well to protect your children from it.
