Most of us Attended John Dewey’s Socialist Public Schools

Now you can begin to see what public schools have really been all about since the beginning–teaching your kids how to become good little socialists without either you or them being aware of it. I guess you could say that public schools are “stealth socialism.” As such, they are no place for Christians to educate their kids. Their kids, if they can find any other possible way to teach them, do not belong in public schools and if, for some reason, they are forced to attend, their parents need to get them out asap. And don’t think for a New York minute that an hour of Sunday School on the Lord’s Day is going to be enough to combat what goes on in public schools for 30 hours of prime time every week. To do such is to be prone to delusion.

Combat Shooter's Handbook Reconnaissance Marine MCI 03.32f: Marine Corps Institute The Betrayed: On Warriors, Cowboys and Other MisfitsSamuel Blumenfeld and Alex Newman wrote a book back in 2014 called Crimes of the Educators which was published by World Net Daily. In it they devoted considerable space to John Dewey, who I have commented on in recent articles. They noted, at the start of the book that “John Dewey is generally lauded as the father of progressive education. but unfortunately he is the father of much more.  A Handbook for Ranch Managers  Planned Grazing: A Study Guide and Reference Manual Environmental & Natural Resource Economics: The Austrian ViewIn the late 1800s,  he and his socialist colleagues decided to embark on a long-range conspiracy to radically change America by imposing their own utopian vision of a collectivist society…Dewey stated that the only way to undermine the capitalist system was to get rid of the emphasis primary schools placed on the development of high literacy and independent intelligence. Why? Because both of these sustained individualism. What was needed, they believed, was a new curriculum that emphasized socialization and taught children to read by a whole-word method that would lower the nation’s literacy level and make its children more amenable to collectivist values…They considered themselves peerless intellects and socialism a morally superior way of life.”

Bet they never told you any of this about Dewey in any of the books you may have read about him, did they? Today, if you want to see just how “morally superior” socialism is, take a good look at Venezuela or Cuba. Trump, in his State of the Union speech noted how Venezuela had once been a thriving country. Now that the socialists have take it over they can’t even feed themselves. And there are people in our Congress that have plans for this country to go the way Venezuela has gone. Doesn’t that sound just delightful? This is what they have planned for us if we continue to slumber on and don’t watch everything those people try to  pull on us. Think about that.

As far as John Dewey’s educational methods, we ought to consider that all of us who attended public schools since Dewey’s heyday were all educated in John Dewey’s socialist public schools and today’s kids are stills being educated in them. Anyone remember those “Dick and Jane” books they gave us to read in first grade? They were part of Dewey’s “whole word” method, where they teach you to memorize the whole word rather than teaching you the phonics so you can learn to sound out long words on your own. It’s a subtle way of dumbing your kids down so they never really learn to read anything where they can’t pronounce some of the words, hence, they read less and learn less–and that’s the name of the game. Your kids are easier to bamboozle if they don’t know too much. We all suffered under Dewey’s questionable methods, foisted upon us by a socialist “educator.”

I recently read an article on the American Thinker https://www.americanthinker.com for October 1, 2012, written by a Bruce Deitrick Price, the title of which was John Dewey is a Fraud. Had I not already known as much, his article would have gone a long way toward convincing me.

Price noted: “The problem with the labels is that John Dewey, albeit a genius, was not an educator in the sense that most people use that word…Dewey was not primarily concerned with teaching new information. He was concerned with inculcating new attitudes. John Dewey was a social engineer–one might even say a community organizer. He believed that socialism was the future. His self-appointed mission was to implement the transition to this brave new world. All of his grand theories, his scores of books, and his hundreds of articles can be summed up as a program for making America socialist.” This was his vision for the public education system in this country–making it even more socialist than it already had been under Horace Mann’s Unitarianism.

Price continued: “There is one little problem at this point: almost nobody in America was asking for this transformation. So Dewey was in the awkward position of redecorating your house when you didn’t ask for it to be redecorated, or more precisely seducing your kids when you don’t want your kids to be seduced. Dewey basically had to ignore law, precedent, tradition, legislatures, voters, elections, expectations of families, and needs of society. He attempted an end-run, and thus a conspiracy. His project is best called Socialism on the Sly…He was doing something on the sly because the public didn’t ask for his ideas and would have rejected them if they had had the chance…It’s worth noting that the entire Dewey machine was operating full-speed by 1890, before the Russian Revolution. Far-left ideology was a force, and the United States had homegrown Marxists eager to join Dewey’s crusade.” Some of them were, no doubt, taught by those socialist and communist revolutionaries that came over here in 1848 in their quest for a socialist America.

And Price made another revelatory statement. He said: “John Dewey wasn’t interested in education as you and I understand this term. Everything he did was in fact intended to subvert and diminish traditional education.” Go back and read that one again. Price was right on the money here. Think about what that means to your kids in school today. As I think about what it meant to my generation–it means that when it came to real education, we got stiffed. The potential may have been there, but Leftist propaganda prevailed to cloud our learning processes. I’m not saying there aren’t or weren’t ever any good teachers–there were and are, but their efforts to truly educate have been blunted by the prevalence of Dewey’s socialist vision.

Another article I ran across was on https://www.theobjectivestandard.com for July 31, 2018 and written by Craig Biddle.  Mr. Biddle observed: “Dewey and the other social engineers in the so-called ‘progressive education’ movement understood not only that politics is downstream from culture–but also that culture is downstream from early childhood education. They knew where to turn and what to do in order to advance socialism big time. They focused on inculcating  socialism in the minds and souls of children.”

Now you can begin to see what public schools have really been all about since the beginning–teaching your kids how to become good little socialists without either you or them being aware of it. I guess you could say that public schools are “stealth socialism.” As such, they are no place for Christians to educate their kids. Their kids, if they can find any other possible way to teach them, do not belong in public schools and if, for some reason, they are forced to attend, their parents need to get them out asap. And don’t think for a New York minute that an hour of Sunday School on the Lord’s Day is going to be enough to combat what goes on in public schools for 30 hours of prime time every week. To do such is to be prone to delusion.

The Essence of Liberty: Volume II (The Economics of Liberty)The Essence of Liberty Volume II: The Economics of Liberty Volume II will introduce the reader to the fundamental principles of the Austrian School of Economics. The Austrian School traces its origins back to the Scholastics of Medieval Spain. But its lineage actually began with Carl Menger and continued on through Adam Smith, Ludwig von Mises, Murray Rothbard and many others. It is the one and only true private property based, free market line of economic thought. Available in both paperback and Kindle versions.
