Planned Obsolescence of the Mind

Read the following recent observations carefully:

The ignorance about our country is staggering. According to one survey, only 28% of students could identify the Constitution as the supreme law of the land. Only 26% of students knew that the first 10 amendments to the Constitution are called the Bill of Rights. Fewer than one-quarter of students knew that George Washington was the first president of the United States. … Ignorance and possibly contempt for American values, civics and history might help explain how someone like Barack Obama could become president of the United States. At no other time in our history could a person with longtime associations with people who hate our country become president. … The fact that Obama became president and brought openly Marxist people into his administration doesn’t say so much about him as it says about the effects of decades of brainwashing of the American people by the education establishment, media and the intellectual elite.

–economist Walter E. Williams

The above situation is not by chance.  It has come about through careful planning and skillful and persistent execution on the part of the Left.  It is well documented in their goals going back into the 1950’s, which I documented here back in 2006 on my first blogsite.  Note goals 17-19.  Many of their other goals are being achieved through our public education system.  This is one of the reasons it will take years to correct our course, if, indeed, it is not too late.  We can only pray like it all depends on God, and work like it all depends on us.

Forging ever onward!
