THE EVIL OF POLITICAL CORRECTNESS — PART 2

Education, no matter who does it, is indoctrination in a belief system. What matters is the content. What matters is the example the instructors set for their students. Do you know what your children are being taught? Do you really know who is teaching your children?

In PART 1 of this series, the Introduction, we gave some examples of political correctness. Here we will discuss how The Establishment makes what it wants us to believe is politically correct.

What Is The Effect Of Political Correctness Upon Our Education System?

In today’s United States, our educational institutions, the so-called mainstream news media, and Big Tech establish and enforce political correctness. So, why focus just upon our educational system? Why not talk about all three? The primary answer to that is that our educational system teaches our children from the time they are small. Because small children are so trusting, they are most willing to accept bad ideas as truth.

Consider.

Whoever has the youth has the future. ― Adolf Hitler

Why would whoever has the youth have the future?

Education is a weapon whose effects depend on who holds it in his hands and at whom it is aimed. — Joseph Stalin

What does it mean to have the youth?

In order to have a real grasp of Marxism, one must learn it not only from books, but mainly through class struggle, through practical work and close contact with the masses of workers and peasants. When in addition to reading some Marxist books our intellectuals have gained some understanding through close contact with the masses of workers and peasants and through their own practical work, we will all be speaking the same language, not only the common language of patriotism and the common language of the socialist system, but probably even the common language of communist world outlook. If that happens, all of us will certainly work much better. — Mao Tse-tung

Why the emphasis upon language? We convey our beliefs with words. We gain an understanding of what others believe from their words. We think in words. When we control the words people use and the way they use those words, we control what people think and believe. When we can control what people think and believe, we can control those people.

How effective is the indoctrination of children in controlling people? The Bible probably provides the best example. Consider the Hebrews in the Book of Numbers. Consider. Why did God do this?

Numbers 14:26-35 New American Standard Bible

26 The Lord spoke to Moses and Aaron again, saying, 27 “How long shall I put up with this evil congregation who are grumbling against Me? I have heard the complaints of the sons of Israel which they are voicing against Me. 28 Say to them, ‘As I live,’ declares the Lord, ‘just as you have spoken in My hearing, so I will do to you; 29 your dead bodies will fall in this wilderness, all your numbered men according to your complete number from twenty years old and upward, who have grumbled against Me. 30 By no means will you come into the land where I swore to settle you, except for Caleb the son of Jephunneh and Joshua the son of Nun. 31 Your children, however, whom you said would become plunder—I will bring them in, and they will know the land which you have rejected. 32 But as for you, your dead bodies will fall in this wilderness. 33 Also, your sons will be shepherds in the wilderness for forty years, and they will suffer for your unfaithfulness, until your bodies perish in the wilderness. 34 In accordance with the number of days that you spied out the land, forty days, for every day you shall suffer the punishment for your guilt a year, that is, forty years, and you will know My opposition. 35 I, the Lord, have spoken, I certainly will do this to all this evil congregation who are gathered together against Me. They shall be worn out in this wilderness, and there they shall die.’”

With wondrous miracles, the Lord God had protected the Hebrews from the Egyptian army. This was the generation of Hebrews who had with devotion built a tabernacle for the Lord. Yet, when the Lord ordered them to enter Promised Land and accept that land of milk and honey as a gift these Hebrews balked. Why did they do that? Well, God did not abandon that generation of Hebrews in the Wilderness. Instead of having these Hebrews enter the Promised Land as warriors, He gave the Hebrews who died in the Wilderness the task of being fit parents to the generation that entered the Promised Land.

Why did God give these Hebrews that task, the job of being good parents in a harsh land? That is perhaps because of the horror-filled hesitation of the Hebrews to enter the Promised Land was not entirely their own fault.

Consider another passage from the Bible.

Exodus 1:8-14 New American Standard Bible

8 Now a new king arose over Egypt, who did not know Joseph. And he said to his people, “Behold, the people of the sons of Israel are too many and too mighty for us. 10 Come, let us deal shrewdly with them, otherwise they will multiply, and in the event of war, they will also join those who hate us, and fight against us and depart from the land.” 11 So they appointed taskmasters over them to oppress them with hard labor. And they built for Pharaoh storage cities, Pithom and Raamses. 12 But the more they oppressed them, the more they multiplied and the more they spread out, so that they dreaded the sons of Israel. 13 The Egyptians used violence to compel the sons of Israel to labor; 14 and they made their lives bitter with hard labor in mortar and bricks and at all kinds of labor in the field, all their labors which they violently had them perform as slaves.

The generation of Hebrews that died in the Wilderness was the product of generations of Hebrews who had been raised and lived as slaves. To keep the Hebrew population under control, the Egyptians had even killed their infant sons (not much different from the Chinese Communist Party using abortion for population control). The Hebrews accepted this brutality because they had been conditioned from birth against fighting back against their masters. These Hebrews were slaves, and the Egyptians had taught them think and speak of themselves as slaves. So, their concept of life was one of slavery. Therefore, when they heard there were giants in the Promised Land, huge warriors, they became horribly afraid, and they refused to enter, even though they knew the Lord God was on their side.

The Lord knew all along that this generation of Hebrews was not fit to become His warriors and conquer the Promised Land, but He apparently wanted them to see it for themselves. So, even after they came to their senses and changed their minds, the Lord made them live with their first decision. Nevertheless, the Lord gave these Hebrews the opportunity to raise a generation of warriors.

God has given parents the responsibilty of raising and seeing to the education their children.

Deuteronomy 6:4-9 New American Standard Bible

4 “Hear, Israel! The Lord is our God, the Lord is one! And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These words, which I am commanding you today, shall be on your heart. And you shall repeat them diligently to your sons and speak of them when you sit in your house, when you walk on the road, when you lie down, and when you get up. You shall also tie them as a sign to your hand, and they shall be as frontlets on your forehead. You shall also write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.

When parents neglect taking responsibility for the education of their children, hand them over to strangers, especially strangers under the control of conniving politicians, then they fail to obey the Lord, and they leave their children vulnerable to being taught beliefs that serve the purposes of those who would be our masters instead of servant leaders.

Oddly, the best students are often the most devotedly and highly indoctrinated in bad beliefs.Why is that so? Think again about that quote from Mao Tse-tung. Consider what it takes to get a Ph.D. Lots and lots of dedicated study and hard work all the way from kindergarten by gifted students. The less students trust and respect our educational institutions the less likely they are to make that kind of effort. Hence, while the people with advanced degrees may have the most knowledge, they don’t necessarily have the most wisdom, not if they have trusted the wrong people to teach them the truth.
