Here is one of those books that could have saved the world a lot of trouble. Published in September 1939, the content was not taken serious enough by the powers to be or they did not bother to read the book written by an ex-communist French author, Boris Souvarine (1895-1984).
Eugene Lyons was a well known journalist at the time, who wrote a comment on the back cover of the book (above). Lyons was also an ex-communist who had spent time in Boston, Massachusetts, in the early twenties defending in the press Sacco and Vanzetti, two anarchists.
The Soviet Empire had “Iron Joe Stalin”, Americans have “Iron Joe Biden”, talking openly about the “New World Order”, promising not to take away your guns, telling his wife to fire in the air and if push comes to shove have intruders stare in the double barrels of a shotgun!
In the mean time, “Uncle O” throws party after party at the White Ranch laughing all the way about those dumb white folk voting for him in the first place let alone the second time around. Both want to protect our children from being gunned down in Chicago gangster land. The same place where the same “gangsters” elected him the very first time to the Senate! The regime’s Department of Education pushes Soviet style (let us not insult the Modern Day Russians) “Common Core” education down the low information voters throats. All regimes think if you control the education of the young you can control the economic and social life the young will live under. And, if they all believe in the same things that are easily controlled by data mining in the classroom and on social media sites, then there will be no opposition to the regime. Here is a quote from the philosopher Bertrand Russell many years ago as found on page 383 in the book The Unseen Hand written by A. Ralph Epperson in 1985:
“Diet, injections, and injunctions will combine from an early age to produce the sort of character and the sort of beliefs that the authorities consider desirable, and any serious criticism of the powers will become psychological impossible. Even if all are miserable, all will believe themselves to be happy, because the government will tell them that it is so.”(the original quote appeared in the book The Child Seducers by John Steinbacker, Educator Publications 1970, page 76 according to the bibliography in Epperson’s book)
Epperson continues with: ” The new pattern of using schools to mold the character the government wants has been furthered by a National Union of School Teachers, the National Education Association (NEA). In one of their reports entitled “Education for the 70’s”, the NEA wrote:
“Schools will become clinics whose purpose is to provide individualized, psycho-social treatment for the student, and teachers must become psycho-social therapists. This will include biochemical and psychological mediation of learning, as drugs are introduced experimentally to improve in the learner such qualities as personality, concentration and memory. Children are to become the objects of experimentation.”
In the mean time, Iron Joe gets drunk on public attention and the other one plays golf and takes vacations on the taxpayers dime, as long as there is still time! Nice bunch those progressives! I am curious which ex-White House Aide or Media Groupie will write the definitive biography of these two avowed nice guy style progressive hardliners?
If you are a caring parent find out for yourself what the percentage of today’s children in school are on Ritalin and other prescribed drugs, then do something about it!
