Public Education–the New Marxism For Our Day

by Al Benson Jr.

Back during the “conservative” Reagan administration we got the federal Department of Education. Reagan was supposed to kill it, but he didn’t because he realized where his bread was buttered. I wonder if even he realized where the idea for that federal department came from. Most folks don’t have a clue. However the idea of a federal department of education was not new with Reagan, or even with Carter before him.

The idea wasn’t new with either one of them. It goes all the way back to 1932, and possibly before that.

In 1932 American Communist Party leader William Z. Foster wrote a book, Toward Soviet America and in it Comrade Foster listed several objectives to be forwarded to make this country into a Soviet America. He wrote: “Among the elementary measures the American Soviet government will adopt to further the cultural revolution are the following; the schools, colleges and universities will be coordinated and grouped under the National Department of Education and its state and local branches.” And he continued: “The studies will be revolutionized, being cleansed of religious, patriotic and other features of the bourgeois ideology. The students will be taught on the basis of Marxian dialectical materialism, internationalism and the general ethics of the new socialist society.”

If you think this could not possibly have happened take a look at the trend of public (actually government) education in the years since Comrade Foster outlined all of this. We’ve got the federal department of education he endorsed. We’ve had it since Reagan was in office. By now it has cost billions and what has it contributed to the educational process in America? Our kids are more dumbed-down than ever. Most of them can’t find the United States on a world map. And if you think that’s an exaggeration, then take a map of the world sometime, cover the names of all the countries and ask the kids how many of them they can identify. Most kids will be lucky if they can come up with a dozen.

The schools have truly been cleansed of “religious” influences, if by “religious” you mean Christian. Just about all other religions still have free reign in “our” public schools, including secular Humanism. They are all permissable in one form or another, even encouraged. But let a teacher even once mention Jesus Christ in a public school classroom and she may not last until the end of the school day before she is fired. So the one “religion” that really matters, Christianity, has been expunged from public school classrooms. You will notice that kids never have Christmas break anymore. Now it’s “holiday break” or “winter break” or some other such innocuous name–anything but Christmas break.

And we have people on the Fake News Media now telling us that “We have to break through our private idea that kids belong to their parents or kids belong to their families, and recognize that kids belong to the whole community.” Whether you realize it or not, that means “the state.”

Back when Obama roosted in the White House, his federal education Czar proposed government boarding schools. He said, “certain kids we should have 24/7.” Why? What entitlement do the feds have to your kids? Well, none really, unless they fully intend to propagandize them under the false banner of “education.” If that is their real aim they will always claim a prior right to that of the parents because in their fevered minds the state really owns the kids. And all this has not changed very much just because Trump got into office. The federal education Leviathan pretty much follows its own agenda no matter who’s in office.

Alex Newman, writing in The New American  for February 4, 2019 has observed, accurately, that “Education, it turns out, is the secret weapon of those seeking to build what they frequently refer to in public as a New World Order. And they not only admit it, they boast of it in public.” And Mr. Newman further observes: “…if the overwhelming majority of children in the coming generations are sufficiently indoctrinated, every struggle between freedom and tyranny will eventually be lost Every. Single. One.”

That is something the people of this country, especially the Christians, really need to reflect on as they decide how they will educate their children.

  1. What is even more tragic for America is that since the 1960 millions of our American children have been brainwashed by our socialist “public” schools. I have been talking and writing about this since the 1970s. I spent at least half of my work life in education and training and I know firsthand what and how this socialist infiltration and takeover of our public education institutions occurred. For all I tried virtually no one would listen to me. They thought I was the disillusioned one. The most heard comeback was, “where’s the proof?”… Actual hard proof was allusive, but then came 2016 and the U.S. Presidential election where we had a self-imposed avowed “socialist” who displayed the ideology of Karl Mars and Fredrick Engels. For those who care about such things as the socialization of our American children little to no attention was paid to the fact that some four million Americans supported, rioted Marxist fashion, and voted for Socialist Bernie Frank. Apparently no one thought anything about that vast change in our American election process. I never heard one single word on TV, not read anything in the printed so-called news–nothing! Yet here we are with a real problem on our hands and life seems to go without any notice as to what our public education institutions have become–brainwashing centers for communist like ideology which has supplanted America’s traditional education curricula… The real question isn’t who or when communism began infiltrating our public and private schools and universities, but what We, the People, of the United States of America are going to do about it…so far I have seen nothing! I have seen no move by the President or his wholly unprepared Secretary of Education, heading a Federal Government organization that must be disbanded and the duty to educate our American children passed back where it always belonged to the States and local governments! The consequences of all of this Communist infiltration and supplanted traditional education with socialist education is that when sufficient American citizens have been adequately brainwashed in the ways of Marx and Engels we supporters of our citizen run Federal Government and American Patriot Constitutionalists will wake up suddenly to learn that the U.S.A. has a Communist Government… First we need more articles written and distributed nationwide to reeducate American citizens in the truth of America and our American leader’s TRUE HISTORY as borne out by period documents, not Marxist revisionist so called historians! Likewise We, the People, regardless of political party affiliation must purge our education and training institutions of communist control and influence if we don’t want to suffer the open-eyed consequences of living as “subjects” under a totalitarian communist, one party, suppressive and totalitarian socialist-Islamic government… Americans who love their lives, families, property and religion are on the brink of losing everything if they do not wake up out of their complacency and get to work focusing on forcing this runaway socialist-leaning Federal Government back into its rightful positions–a limited form of citizen run and elected government supporting and protecting the sovereign States of the U.S.A. instead of acting like socialist dictators and ruling the masses… Democrat Party members must realize that being a Democrat Party member will not spare them the same hardships as other political party members, but as has been proven all over the world when communism consumes a nation, those who supported it are normally the first to go. For example, the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia in 1917 was only possible because Marxists leaders whipped up the common people of Russia, “peasant”, into a revolutionary fervor, and after Lenin won he turned against the peasants who fought and died for Lenin’s cause, yet they were forced onto national and party “collectives” to work and produce for the new Communist Party system of totalitarian government… Do the citizens of the USA want a communist like totalitarian government??? The citizens, ALL citizens of the USA, best wake up out of their longtime complacency and fight for the lives of themselves, their families, their property, their religion and their very lives…

  2. Al,
    believe me I share your frustration. My wife and I were part of the textbook protest in Kanawha County, ,West Virginia in the mid-1970s and I, too, have written about this on and off for decades, urging people to get their kids out of public schools and mostly no one listens. That doesn’t mean I plan to stop however.
