Please enjoy our recent episode of the Seeds of Liberty Podcast. This week Jon Moss, an anarchist and unschooling father, joined us. Herein we discussed what led Jon down the path of unschooling, how even kindergarten in government schools is overly oppressive, corrupting the youth with the truth, the benefits of unschooling/homeschooling, how most children thrive in self-learning scenarios, whether or not college is “worth it”, the myth of socialization in government schools, the destructive side of teacher tenure, how the government school system stifles good teachers and protects the bad, teachers unions, how learning is stifled through regimentation, online learning, and more!
This is a topic that is vital for many people to hear, parents and non-parents alike! In order to ingrain the children with a profound sense of Stockholm syndrome nationalism “government” must begin it’s programming at as young and tender an age as possible. In the former Soviet Union it was only 4 years. In the USA it is 12 years or 15,000 hours of State indoctrination and massively biased revisionist history. Overarching lessons include the appeal to authority, appeal to antiquity, black and white logical fallacy, no freedom of association, no freedom of speech, knowledge and justice comes from authority, Pavlovian bells signify movement, pervading eleutheromania clock watching mentality, deviation from the curriculum is harshly discouraged, obedience to authority is rewarded, and disobedience is punished. These are the unspoken and most important lessons that every child remembers long after the insignificant irrelevant information is long forgotten. If you give your child to the State for education do not be disappointed at the result. Vacate the State!
The plain fact is that education is itself a form of propaganda – a deliberate scheme to outfit the pupil, not with the capacity to weigh ideas, but with a simple appetite for gulping ideas ready-made. The aim is to make ‘good’ citizens, which is to say, docile and uninquisitive citizens.
