    6th grade writing assignment in Minnesota – Common Core 

    This “poem” was written by a Minnesota school teacher. She handed it out with some of the words replaced by a blank line. The class was told to use their “prior knowledge” to fill in the blanks.  The students complied, and she was quite successful in teaching them What to Think.

     

    I Am A Dakota

    I am a Dakota,
    I hear people crying over our land.
    I see white settlers trying to convert us to Christianity.
    I want white settlers to be fair
    I am a brother,
    I feel worried.
    I touch the young children who have to fulfill our traditions.
    I worry that we’re going to die with no fairness.
    I cry about unfairness.
    I am a Dakota,
    I understand that we have no fairness.
    I say that we be leaders not followers.
    I dream all people live fairly.
    I am a Dakota.

    I Am A Newcomer
    I am Alexander Ramsey,
    I hear the sweet sound of Dakota leaving their homeland.
    I see more land.
    I want more land.
    I am Alexander Ramsey,
    I feel good about making more treaties.
    I touch rough paper of treaties.
    I worry the Dakota will get in our way.
    I cry about the Dakota getting in my way.
    I am Alexander Ramsey,
    I understand that we want more land.
    I say that we should make more treaties.
    I dream that we settlers kick out the Dakota.
    I am Alexander Ramsey.

    Marcus Tullius Cicero – Orator and Statesman, 106 BC-43 BC on Traitors 

    “A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague.”

    Environmentalism – the religion of 30% of voters 

    We have to accept that they have succeeded in establishing the religion of environmentalism as the official religion of Western society, as the religion which asks for a radical transformation of the whole Western civilization.

    We ARE what we read 

    What we read shapes who we are.

    Readers who love history books understand these ideas: pietas, fides, gravitas, dignitas, constantia.  These virtues were interwoven into the Roman education system.

    We read these ideas: Forgotten Gems:Online Liberty Library

     http://oll.libertyfund.org/index.php?option=com_content&task=blogcategory&id=60&Itemid=262

    Readers who love science fiction understand utopian ideas.

    Read the book Red Planets: Marxism and Science Fiction by Mark Bould. Bould states that “Science fiction and socialism have always had a close relationship. Many science fiction novelists and filmmakers have used the genre to examine explicit or implicit Marxist concerns.”

    These are the ideas interwoven into our current culture. Environmentalism replaces Christianity as the new religion of Western Civilization. Human beings are now a cancer on the planet. Earth can only begin to heal when we are removed. These ideologies are embedded in the newest public school science curriculum.
