the value of a good education

100 years of social engineering

Do you think the government is doing a good job of educating your child? You
may think differently after reading this. John Gatto, who has won awards for excellence
as a teacher, had this to say about our education system in his books:

” John Taylor Gatto, who was a New York City public school teacher for thirty years,
becoming both New York City Teacher of the Year and New York State Teacher of the Year
a total of four times combined, had the following to say on pgs. xxxv-xxxvi of his
groundbreaking 1992 book entitled Dumbing Us Down: The Hidden Curriculum of
Compulsory Schooling:
“I began to wonder, reluctantly, whether it was possible that being in school itself was
what was dumbing [the students] down. Was it possible I had been hired not to enlarge
children’s power, but to diminish it? That seemed crazy on the face of it, but slowly I
began to realize that the bells and the confinement, the crazy sequences, the age segregation,
the lack of privacy, the constant surveillance, and all the rest of the national
curriculum of schooling were designed exactly as if someone had set out to prevent
children from learning how to think and act, to coax them into addiction and dependent
Gatto further explained on pg. 154 of his 2003 book, The Underground History of
American Education, the reasons why someone wanted the children dumbed down:
“Faced with the problem of dangerous educated adults, what could be more natural than a
factory to produce safely stupefied children? You’ve already seen that the system has only
limited regard for brainy people, so nothing is lost productively in dumbing down and
leveling the mass population, even providing a dose of the same for ‘gifted and talented’
children. And much can be gained in social efficiency. What motive could be more
‘humane’ than the wish to defuse the social the social dynamite positive science was endlessly
casting off as a byproduct of its’ success?”

” Experience has proven that the simplest method of securing a silent weapon and gaining
control of the public is to keep the public undisciplined and ignorant of basic systems
principles on the one hand, while keeping them confused, disorganized, and distracted
with matters of no real importance.
This is achieved by:
1. Disengaging their minds, sabotaging their mental activities, by providing a lowquality
program of public education in mathematics, logic, systems design, and
economics, and by discouraging technical creativity.
2. Engaging their emotions, increasing their self-indulgence and their indulgence in
emotional and physical activities, by:
a. Unrelenting emotional affronts and attacks (mental and emotional rape) by
way of a constant barrage of sex, violence, and wars in the media —
especially on the TV and in the newspapers.
b. Giving them what they desire — in excess — junk food for thought — and
by depriving them of what they really need.
3. Rewriting history and law and subjecting the public to the deviant creation, thus
being able to shift their thinking from personal needs to highly fabricated outside

These preclude their interest in and discovery of the silent weapons of social automation
technology. The general rule is that there is profit in confusion; the more confusion, the
more profit. Therefore, the best approach is to create problems and then offer the
solutions [emphasis mine].
• MEDIA: Keep the adult public attention diverted away from the real social issues,
and captivated by matters of no real importance.
• SCHOOLS: Keep the young public ignorant of real mathematics, real economics, real
law, and real history.
• ENTERTAINMENT: Keep the public entertainment below a sixth-grade level.
• WORK: Keep the public busy, busy, busy, with no time to think — back on the farm
with the other animals.”

What we’re talking about here is social engineering, most of the problems of today’s
society have been planned, created, and implemented through our education system.
It is really no accident that children get very little time with their parents to be
taught values or skills, and why old people are hidden away and clustered together,
isolated in wrinkle ranches, and why we are constantly bombarded with useless
distractions, like which celebrity is cheating on their partner.
If we really lived in a democracy, no books would be banned, but there is an
ever growing list of banned books by David Icke and many others.
