"The test of every religious, political,
or educational system, is the man which it forms.
If a system injures the intelligence it is bad.
If it injures the character it is vicious.
If it injures the conscience it is criminal."
Henri Frederic Amiel
(1821-1881) Swiss philosopher, poet
Journal, 17 June 1852

Exactly. Schools like that are expensive and hard to find. There ain't no free ride in this life.

    If it steals your money and saddles you with debt it is criminal. If it can throw you in jail indefinately without charges, it is criminal. If it makes war on foreign nations under false pretenses it is criminal. If it makes policy which ignores its founding principles it is criminal. If it cares not at all who gets hurt for it to achieve immoral goals it is psychopathic. Look familiar?

    As we are a nation of non-thinkers, increasingly ignoring God, and electing people according to the messages of the (wo)men who call themselves news(wo)men (rather than what they are, script-readers), supporting a tyrannical leadership, we will have a nation of dependent, non-thinking, non-producing people. That has been proven over and over in the last 40+ years and never been worse than it is the last 12. We are damaged goods as a nation and 90% can't/won't recognize it, 90% of the members of congress support this, and as our country slides into the abyss of something we no longer recognize as a republic, the people are so numbed by tv that they haven't even recognized it. Once piled up in the hole, it will be too late.

    Public services unions running the education system from Kindergarten through University were formed shortly after the Fed was established.  As a result, the content has been modified to best promote the new world order of statism and American subservience to a globalist world order under the banking cartels.  The universities were taken over a long time ago by cultural Marxists to rile up the youth to tear down their country.  The war for liberty and independence is eternal.  If you think we have won it, you don't even know you are in bondage.
