We can confidently place most of the blame for public fear and ignorance about COVID-19 squarely on the mainstream media. This has apparently become the main mission of this propaganda branch of the Left, from which the misinformation originates.

Not surprisingly, those relying on mainstream media remain utterly unaware of the gigantic anti-COVID-19 lockdown protests occurring around the world. And what’s really remarkable, given the flood of up-to-date data and observable evidence to the contrary, a significant number of people still believe that COVID-19 is something to be unusually feared, when it has already statistically proven to be far less deadly than an average flu season.

Much of the media’s misinformation campaign has been intentionally driven by the use of false definitions and fraudulent statistics. Key words and terms continually misrepresented include the following: ‘SARS CoV-2 virus,’ ‘COVID-19,’ ‘pandemic,’ ‘cases,’ ‘deaths,’ and even the word ‘mask’ itself. Thus, confusion reigns.

By far, the most abused term is ‘cases,’ a favored statistic reported daily by propagandists. The question always begs asking, ‘cases’ of what? Rarely are distinctions made between ‘cases’ of ‘COVID-19,’ or ‘cases’ of ‘SARS CoV-2’ or ‘cases’ of ‘deaths,’ or even ‘cases’ they call ‘resolved.’ And it doesn’t help when the term ‘COVID-19 cases’ is used interchangeably with ‘coronavirus cases’ or other such combinations. Confusion persists, all for the lack of definition! Continue reading »

659 – Homeschooling—when state education fails the test

The COVID-19 lockdown and school closures may have unintentionally created a golden opportunity for parents to reclaim and guide the education of their children. And considering some of the outrageous post-COVID plans for our schools, keeping those schools locked down may be preferable.

Thanks to the lockdown (and in some part because of regular teacher strikes plaguing state education), politicians and state educators have actually been encouraging parents to homeschool their children until the schools re-open – whenever that might possibly be. This is ironic, given the growing state trend to ban homeschooling, as has already been done in many European nations such as Germany.

Indeed, Harvard law professor Elizabeth Bartholet has called for a presumptive ban on homeschooling in the United States, and for the state having a similar presumptive authority over parental rights. Arguing that parents are “authoritarian,” she seems oblivious to the authoritarianism of all things state-controlled and monopolized. We can expect these collectivist ideas to frame the coming debate over parental rights as we head into the future.

“The only purpose of education,” wrote philosopher-novelist Ayn Rand, “is to teach a student how to live his life – by developing his mind and equipping him to deal with reality.” If that’s so, then state education completely fails the test. Far too many dysfunctional and illiterate ‘graduates’ of state education are not even capable of apprehending reality, let alone dealing with it.

Perhaps now is an ideal time to reconsider some of our basic assumptions and attitudes towards what is being called ‘public education’ and to also re-consider the most effective schooling alternative that long preceded compulsory state education: homeschooling.

It would be Just Right by us if more parents chose to homeschool or otherwise seek alternative schooling – even if only inspired by the COVID-19 lockdown.

Globalism and why Johnny is a Marxist | Salim Mansur

 Education, Globalism, Ideas, Latest, Politics, Reason, Society  Comments Off on Globalism and why Johnny is a Marxist | Salim Mansur
Apr 032020
 

All political and cultural movements begin with an idea. In the case of globalism, that idea is Marxism.

The educators of the Western world over the past 75 or more years have, in various ways, made the ideas of Karl Marx part of the standard curricula of our public school systems and universities. The result is that we now have a population that is significantly illiterate, unable to reason, incapable of logic, ignorant of science, and unable to think independently.

Because of this dumbing down of the West people consequently find it easy to believe that CO2 is a pollutant, that Michael Bloomberg, who spent 500 million on his campaign, could have just given every American one million dollars, and that there are 63 genders.

Salim Mansur of Western University explains the process by which Marxists have, over a period of decades, infiltrated our academies of learning and altered them into institutions of globalist indoctrination and propaganda.

(In our discussion, Salim made note of a report by Stanley Kurtz of The National Association of Scholars. That report can be found here: https://www.nas.org/reports/the-lost-history-of-western-civilization.)

Why Johnny Can't Think

Increasing illiteracy rates and decreasing rates of mastering common knowledge have become highly visible trends within education systems right across North America.

Millennials, in particular, have been identified as the least educated and most illiterate generation in recent history. However, this is not the fault of that generation, or necessarily of others similarly afflicted by illiteracy and its attendant symptoms. Most of the problem can be blamed on the education systems and the teaching trends followed by most schools across North America.

Moreover, it’s not just about ‘what’ is being taught (or not taught), but about ‘how’ it is being taught. Perhaps the most disturbing realization about what has been called ‘progressive education’ is that its teaching methods have been intentionally designed to interfere with and cripple students’ ability to reason. This is no mere accusation, but is the explicit and stated goal of the architects of progressive education.

While for most this is an unthinkable and sinister thing to do to children, to those intent on nurturing compliant and obedient followers incapable of resisting the forces of collectivism, it’s the perfectly appropriate thing to do. It is a practice that has been growing and gaining acceptance within public schools for the better part of the last century. More than any single cause, this practice is responsible for today’s shocking level of illiteracy and for the increasing number of young people who cannot reason objectively or think independently.

Audio as broadcast on WBCQ

Politics may be downstream from culture but culture gets its notions and ideas from academia. If this is so then we are headed for disaster both culturally and politically.

Join Danielle and Robert as they connect the dots from a raving university debating professor who wins his debates by shouting profanities at his opponents to the latest terrible incarnation of Star Trek to the gong show that is the Democratic presidential nomination debates.

While most political and cultural trend lines today are pointing down, to locate the source, the fountainhead, of this frightening trend, look up to the ivory towers… and despair.

Bruce Pardy – The Effect of Free Speech Laws on Universities

 Comments Off on Bruce Pardy – The Effect of Free Speech Laws on Universities
Aug 012019
 

“The university is broken. It’s petty. It’s corrupt, intellectually corrupt. It’s a breeding ground now for authoritarians.”

So begins Professor Bruce Pardy’s presentation to the Society for Academic Freedom and Scholarship’s 2019 AGM.

His talk on the attempts by the Ontario government, led by Doug Ford, to curtail abuses of academic free speech focuses on the recent actions by some universities against some conservative speakers restricting their access to campus after protests by radical and sometimes violent Leftists.

Prof. Pardy’s thesis is that while the Conservative government’s attempt to prevent such biased restrictions is welcome it will not succeed due to the current state of the law in Ontario in the context of Canada’s Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

“If you want to change the law or influence you gotta change the culture.”

University of Chicago history professor, Rachel Fulton Brown has been criticized and even harassed for a blog post she published on June 5, 2015 titled “Three Cheers for White Men.” (https://tinyurl.com/yyu6a4sq)

Her post explained that “white men,” the racist and inflammatory term used by Leftists to denote — in a derogatory way — Western culture, were responsible for such things as chivalry, women’s rights, and free speech.

We spoke with Professor Brown at a meeting of the Society for Academic Freedom and Scholarship at Western University in London, Ontario on May 4th, 2019.
