Democracy is it's own worst enemy, sometimes... it thrives on compromise and power.

In response to the questions raised by the editorial “The Privy Circle of Power” I offer an insight to the cause and course of correction of the near fatal state of American Education today. As for teachers: the good ones are God-given gifts for the wellbeing of all mankind, and I laud their work and perseverance. God bless them each and every one!
Our entire society has suffered from a tragic “dumbing-down syndrome.” The current stumbling blocks placed in schools, as to quotas of racial mixes, and social stratas in public schools had its roots in the “Welfare” and “de-segregation” laws of the 1900’s. It is a case of “Democracy being it's own worst enemy”: the tipification of The Peter Principle at work in government.
American is a "REPUBLIC" (as opposed to a democracy) we need not forget that. And it is one which I love it dearly, and wouldn't trade it as a government for anything!
Individual Teachers in general education are not part of this commentary except to say: The good teachers are God-given gifts for the wellbeing of all mankind, and I laud their work and perseverance.

As a Christian I have learned two true things about those two facts of American life: "Evil companions do, indeed, corrupt good morals" and “Have no associate not equal to yourself in wisdom.”
Public education policies violate both those standards. I’m not talking about different races, here; I’m talking of two vastly different ideologies! The grifters suddenly became equal with the working class, and in essence said, “You work for the money, and I take it!”
(I want to emphasize, I am NOT anti-black or any other race: I am anti-welfare for it breeds stupidity, and anti-racism as racism holds back some progressive souls just because of their color. But by the same token, I am anti-nitwit! of any race.)
Our educational problems began in the early 1900's. From the "welfare movement" of the 1930’s, to the cry “power to the people!" of the 1960’s.” That cry wasn't for all the people. Just black people! It didn’t come from the ghetto’s like it shows in the movies. It came from colleges... and it came through congress!
It came from Senators who promoted giving money to all the poor regardless of their work ethic, and it came from the Supreme Court Justices that legalized welfare for illegitimate children, born one after another to parents who didn’t want and couldn’t care for them. It was sanctioned by uneducated preaching from Hell-bound “pulpeteers” under the guise of “Love Thyself” and “Love thy neighbor!” I heard it! I saw it in action! And I hate it!
Welfare created generations of dead-heads who fathered thousands of welfare-sucking babies, by millions of illiterate ne’re-do-dwells, just to promote the proliferation of racial votes in the coming decades!
Many preachers who grew up under that diabolical lie of “freedom to do your own thing” think God Almighty gave them that right! Poor souls will free-will themselves right straight to Hell with that foolishness.
Nobody liked the welfare but the welfare recipients! One generation of welfare takers bred twenty generations who knew that looking like a dumb-dumb meant money in the bank. They had no reason to want an education. They still have no reason to want an education.
Their attitudes permeate the schools.
I recently sat at a restaurant table next to an extended table of well-dressed persons of color whose entire conversation dealt exclusively with “How to work the governmental system to get free money to get wealthy!” They told how to get every pre-teen in the family knocked-up and then put up a mail-box just for them so they could have individual addresses to collect their checks in! That one family must have collected ten thousand dollars a month! That’s wrong, but it’s being done in thousands of “families.”
We won’t change the education of America until we change the legislation that corrupted it in the first place! All that governmental interference (accumulated from generations past) is killing America’s freedom to progress, one breath at a time! Free thinkers are not hurt by poor beginnings as much as by poor lifestyles. And government subsidies for wrongdoing never made it right.
Change corrupt laws and stop welfare. Stop bussing mandates. Then you can change education in America! That way, those who want an education can get one, and they won’t have to support those who are lazy, shiftless, vile or stupid... of any race.
