"The economic well-being of the nation depends on the presence of a large number of men who are content to labor hard all day long. Because men are naturally lazy they will not work unless forced by necessity to do so. The education of the poor threatens to rob the nation of their productivity. . . Every hour those poor people spend at their books is so much time lost to society. Going to school in comparison to working is idleness." ~ Bernard de Mandeville, The Fable of the Bees, 1714 (the book which Adam Smith used as the basis of his 1776 Wealth of Nations, the capitalist Bible)“Predictably, the very people who place American presidents, senators, and representatives in power, through the use of their multi-billion dollar fortunes, are the same moneyed interests that have deliberately destroyed American education. The Rockefellers, Fords, Morgans, Browns, Harrimans, Du Ponts, and other ruling families want obedient, efficient workers, not thinkers.”By 1968, John Goodlad, one of the educational establishment's best known spokespersons, made it clear just what was important in "education.""The most controversial issues of the twenty-first century will pertain to the ends and means of modifying human behavior and who shall determine them. The first educational question will not be 'what knowledge is of the most worth?' but 'what kinds of human beings do we wish to produce?'The possibilities virtually defy our imagination." ~ Learning and Teaching in the Future," Today's Education, (journal of the National Education Association)"We must overcome the fetishism of the alphabet, of the multiplication tables, of grammars, of scales, and of bibliolatry . . . it would be no serious loss if a child never learned to read.""Secret knowledge is the basis of all power. Your source of information depends upon who you are and what position you hold in society. Your source of information determines the reliability of what you know." ~ Steven Jacobson, Mind Control in the United States

I list all these factors in an attempt to explain America’s slide into chaos and confusion, into repression and insecurity. It is an attempt to at least investigate why America has deviated from its original values of self-reliance and liberty into conformity and dependence on a system that everyone knows does not have the best interests of each individual at heart.
