This time around, the Marxists are going to use our kiddies as the starting off point for their civilization killer, known as the model cities program. They have developed a slickly produced piece of animation, geared for use in our public education system as a means to indoctrinate our younguns into the wonders of Socialism. By utilizing our public education system as a stepping off point, all they need do is continue the propaganda there and wait for the kiddies to graduate to voting age with little more than skulls full of mush on their shoulders. Are you still on the fence as to whether it was a good idea to allow a Department of Education to be created, or to allow for the Marxists to completely take over the education of our children by letting the public sector unions to become mega powerful. Fortunately, there is a solution, as we have all seen the Model Cities Program before, and seen its ravages. That city is Detroit, Michigan, and its story has previously appeared on this very blog. We have something that the Marxists don't have. We have the truth. As luck would have it, their ideas are not knew, and in fact have all been tried in various laboratories around the globe, Greece, Spain, the former Soviet Union, East Germany, Czechoslovakia, European Union, California, Illinois, Detroit, New Orleans, etc. You should get the point. I think we should show the kiddies the first video, just like the Marxists want, and then follow up with the second video, so that the children may also see the results of following through on what the proponents of video wish to inflict upon us.
As you may have suspected, the real live results are somewhat different than what an animator is able to create through his craft. Detroit you see, implemented this very program way back in 1965, as a part of LBJ's Great Society. Now strap in once again, and witness the true results of the Marxist plan in action!
Special Note: Crowder stated in his video that Detroit's unemployment was 28% when this video was produced, but on an appearance on Fox later, he placed that rate at 50%. Don't buy that Detroit is coming back baloney the left is pushing, those commercials all had to be filmed in Southern California.
There are many problems with the top down command economy. One of the problems is that it never accounts for human behavior as a part of its calculus. Where are we going to find these altruistic angels to come and organize our society for us. The thought that these enlightened individuals will never once place their interests or the interests of their cronies above those of society is at best moronic, and at most, deadly to the rest of us. All one need do to dispel that idiocy is take a look at the current group of Marxists in charge. The Obama's jet around the globe and party like rock stars, their cronies are handed Billions in federal loan guarantees for businesses already in bankruptcy, while at the very same time, the President of the United States is delivering speeches on how their already dying projects represent the future of all mankind. To be certain, there is much more about the first video than what I have briefly touched upon here. The important thing however is that we already have a record of what happened when it was previously attempted.
The Socialists will always counter with the same argument, so be prepared for it. That argument will always be, "we just didn't do it right this time. We should have invested more resources. we allowed corruption to enter into the process, and we won't do that this time around." The good news though is that we don't have to continue ceding the education system to the political left. Conservatives can become teachers as well. We, need to start standing up to the unions and start asserting our wishes upon the school boards via the electoral process. Fire the principals who allow this tripe to be utilized as an educational tool, unless is it as a precursor to a counter argument, such as the Crowder video. We still have this ability in our country, we just need to use it.
