    The moronification of Americans was not rapid. It has been done gradually over several decades like Burmada grass growing underground till it overcomes a garden. The garden being the legitimate education of American youth instead of a concerted effort to indoctrinate them.

    The debasement of, traditional and classical knowledge, individualism and independent thinking is necessary if a government is to control its citizens and convince them to accept an ideology that a legitimate education would cause them to reject.
    This debasement must be fought against at every turn.
    Consider this statement by Vladimir Lenin.
    “Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.”
    Johann Gottlieb Fichte, 1762-1814 philosopher and psychologist promoted atheism and is considered the father of German nationalism stated the following:
    “Education should aim at destroying free will so that after pupils are thus schooled they will be incapable throughout the rest of their lives of thinking or acting otherwise than as their school masters would have wished … The social psychologist of the future will have a number of classes of school children on whom they will try different methods of producing an unshakable conviction that snow is black. When the technique has been perfected, every government that has been in charge of education for more than one generation will be able to control its subjects securely without the need of armies or policemen.”·

    It is true that many have forgotten (if they were ever taught) important principles of our national heritage.

    Please remember Roger Williams (who founded Rhode Island to escape religious persecution of Baptists in the other colonies) fiercely protected the “hedge or wall of Separation between the Garden of the Church and the Wilderness of the world.”

    Re-elected congressmen and, if I may say so, the President are only doing what the people elected them to do. After all, the electorate knew what they were like and re-elected them anyway. You want a group of morons to run your country, elect them.
