    To educate is to lead externally (e=external, out; duct=to lead).

    Education is sifted into the minds of students while THE process OF "the what" THAT is receiving and processing this information IS GROSSLY OVERLOOKED!

    Therefore, nourishment of "the brain" is neglected altogether.

    The 90% (subconscious/spirit) is ignored; while the 10% (conscious/self) is over flooded. This is where the statement "you only use 10% of your brain cells" comes into reality. Therefore, when you extract from "the within" the 10% of the 90/10 equation rises tremendously. This is yet another example of GOD's power and mind working inside you....

    In the United States, we have the worst educational systems in the
    world. They used to be okay, but compared to the Education that
    Europeans get, we are not even getting close.

    In Early America, the colonists had college level educations by the
    time we would be heading into High School.

    Why do you think that is?

    How could it be, that the Founding Fathers were in their Twenties
    and early thirties, when they Drafted the Declaration of
    Independence, on their own?

    Could anyone in this country do that today?

    I seriously doubt it. One must have a basic and fundamental
    understanding of "Government", & "Economics" on a world-wide level
    to be able to Draft such a document. Do you think anyone in the U.S
    today would be capable? I doubt it!!!

    I first started to learn about the differences of American education
    with European education when I read Antony Sutton's book "America's
    Secret Establishment - An Introduction to the Order of Skull &
    Bones". This book has always been one of my favorites, since it is
    so revealing, and was not put out by the "Establishment". Sutton reveals to the reader, what is known as the "Look-Say" reading method, wherein, a student is taught to associate a "picture" with a "word". This would mean that a teacher would show a student a picture of a "Dog" and then tell him/her that--that is a "Dog". Good enough??

    Maybe, if you are trying to teach "Deaf and Dumb" people. You see, that is what "Look-Say" was originally developed for. It was to teach "Deaf and Dumb" people how to read and write. It was not developed for "Normal" people.

    "Normal" people throughout Europe were educated by learning
    the "Root-Meaning" of the "Word." So if a teacher was showing you a
    picture of a "dog", you would also learn where the meaning of the
    word "Dog" comes from. Where the word "Canine" comes from. And
    that "word" comes from another word and so on.

    (From Secret Establishment Pg.71-72)

    Look-Say reading methods were developed around 1810 for Deaf Mutes by Thomas Hopkins Gallaudet. Thomas H Gallaudet was the eldest son of Peter Wallace Gallaudet, a descendant from a French Huguenot family, and Jane Hopkins. Jane Hopkins traced her ancestry back to John Hopkins and the Reverend Thomas Hooker in the Seventeenth century, who broke away from the congregational church to help found Hartford Connecticut. This parallels the story of the Lord family.

    The Lords also traced their ancestry back to Hopkins and Hooker and
    the Lords founded Hartford Connecticut. And it was in Hartford,
    Connecticut in 1835 that a printer named Lord produced Thomas
    Gallaudet's first Look-Say Primer, "Mother's Primer".

    Gallaudet's original intention was to use the Look-say method only
    for Deaf Mutes who have no concept of a spoken language and are
    therefore unaware of phonetic sounds for letters. For this purpose,
    Gallaudet founded the "Hartford School for the Deaf" in 1817. The
    Gallaudet system works well for [Deaf Mutes], but there is no
    obvious reason to use it for those who have the ability to hear
    sounds.

    Anyway, in 1835 Mother's Primer was published and the Massachusetts
    Primary school Committee under Horace Mann immediately adopted the book on an experimental basis. Later we shall find that Horace Mann ties directly to the Order - in fact, the Co-founder of the Order.
    On pages 73 and 74 we reproduce two pages from the second edition of 1836, with the following directions to the teacher:

    "...pointing to the whole word Frank, but not to the letters.
    Nothing is yet to be said about letters..."

    Why did Horace Mann push a method designed for deaf mutes onto a
    school system populated with persons who were not deaf mutes?

    There are two possible reasons. The reader can take his or her pick.
    First, in 1853 Mann was appointed President of Antioch College. The
    most influential Trustee of Antioch College was the Co-founder of
    the Order (Skull & Bones) - Alphonso Taft.

    Second, Mann never had a proper education and consequently was
    unable to judge a good method from a bad method for reading.

    By 1840, there was a backlash, and the Look-say system was dropped
    in Massachusetts. But, toward the end of the 19th century The Order
    came on the scene - and the Look-say method was revived. The
    youngest son of Thomas Hopkins and Sophia Galludet was Edward Minor Gallaudet. Two of his sons went to Yale and became members of the Order:

    1. Edson Fessenden Gallaudet (1893 Initiated), who became an
    instructor of Physics at Yale, and

    2. Herbert Draper Gallaudet (1898 Initiated), who attended Union
    Theological Seminary and became a clergyman.

    Then the method was adopted by Columbia Teachers College and the
    Lincoln School. The thrust of the new Dewey-inspired system of
    education was away from learning and towards preparing a child to be
    a unit in the organic society. Look-say was ideal for "Deweyists". It
    skipped one step in the learning process. It looked "easy", and de-
    emphasized learning skills.

    The educational establishment rationalized look-say by claiming that
    up to the turn of the century reading was taught by "synthetic"
    methods, i.e. children were taught letters and an associated sound
    value. Then they learned to join syllables to make words. This was
    held to be uninteresting and artificial. Educational research, it
    was claimed, demonstrated that in reading words are not analyzed
    into component letter parts, but seen as complete units. Therefore,
    learning to read should start with complete units.

    Well, there is a lot more to this than just the transference of the
    look-say method onto our current reading and learning structure.
    There is also the Experiential Psychology brought over from Germany,
    under Hegelian Principles..

    Based upon this write up and the historical knowledge of our ancestors learning system, we would basically have to conclude that the masses of the people have been made to be "retarded according to world educational standards and those of our ancestors". A retarded method of teaching was used to teach the masses who by world standards are not educated enough to function in or play a leading role in the geo-eco-politics of the world market place or governing structure. Good post, long over-due.

    I remember specifically at age 32 when I reached the conclusion that everything I was ever taught was a lie and that I had to be re-educated....I walked around for the next 3 months in a fog like I was retarded. I mean, you should have seen me...I was literally walking around like a zombie in one of them movies!!! (laughs) I can laugh now as I look back on it but it was not funny at all at the time. I know now that the reason I was walking around like that was because I was in a form of shock...a shock that had me believing that in all this time I thought I was dealing with reality when in fact I was not. Not only wasn't I dealing with it but I was purposely groomed not to know it or deal with it.

    Well, by the time the shock was wearing off I was on a mission...a mission of serious education on all levels that continues down to today. I knew then that I was never going to be a chess piece anymore...for we are either one of the players or one of the played....one of the movers or one of the moved.

    At the time I was a cold Christian and a young brother took my Bible and ripped a hole in my behind with it. He was a Muslim. I ran into the same brother about 15 years later and guess what? I was so far ahead of him that he just didn't have the words. His growth stopped with Islam, mine didn't. In my mind, there were so many lies that I was uncovering that I just knew that it didn't stop with religion. Thus my research went into every area of people activity and thought on a global basis. I simply refused to believe that WE were the only people who were lied to.

    Well....
    All I have to say is...Sis Fine1952, you have laid this down right proper! :bowdown:

    Brother Keita, I agree with you analogy and hold a similiar stance. The question I intended to address in my disseration was "Are children (and by default, families) of Afreekan Descent programmed to self-destruct"?

    Sis. Fine1952 has certainly provided information which supports this theory and line of thinking and...what I hear you also saying, is what I consider for myself as having been traumatized.
    For it was a very traumatic experience when I came into full consciousness of the level of ish we were mired it.
    That "ish" is the LIES, LIES, ON TOP OF LIES fed to Us....and...learning how them ****** planned it was simply mind-blowing. For M.E., I sense I am STILL in shock and I'm clear that this is because in large part....WE are STILL acting out the programming towards each other and many are unable and/or unwilling to see it.
    I'm still learning also how to protect myself from getting "blind-sided with b.s" which shows up in the faulty BE~haviors WE engage in towards each other.

    Anywho...Thank you again Sis. Fine1952 for this post and the other two you did as well

    Very good question. The answer is that "we are or have been programmed to self destruct simply on the basis that we have been programmed to ensure our oppressors survival". Our demise meant their rise, their demise means our rise. This is on a mental, cultural, economic, spiritual, social, educational, political and historic level....thereby making it personal. Every time we ensure our oppressors survival we move against our own survival.

    What is education really about? That is a word Black Americans use a lot but I rarely hear anyone try to explain what they mean by it.

    I mean: THE ACQUISITION OF RELEVANT KNOWLEDGE

    This obviously brings up the question of what is relevant but I won't address that right now though some ideas may be inferred by my list in this post.

    What matters in physical reality is knowledge not college. But we also have to deal with social reality. In this country much of social reality is controlled by White people, many of whom aren't that smart. Not having a college degree gives them a good excuse to block your progress with their rules. Even if a person has a college degree it doesn't necessarily mean they posess much relevant knowledge. If anything, more of our schools are turning into diploma mills that take a kid's money and waste their time on drivel. But there is no escape so you have to decide how to deal with the social/reality games.

    I think our so called educational system is designed to slow down and misdirect development, not advance it. So this is my attempt to short-circuit the system.

    Here is a list that may help you acquire some useful knowledge. Of course you will have to decide if I am just another dummy spreading nonsense. LOL

    Im glad to have found this post, I feel all the points that have been brought up by everybody.

    I am actually a college student right now at Morehouse College and I definitely feel all out of wack. First of all, most of the teachers do not know what they are talking about. Especially the history teachers who I may know more than even though they hold doctorates. Even the students are dummies and don't know how to think critically or think for themselves. They are paraded around the school taking useless classes and their money is used to purchase unecessary clothing instead of books to advance their knowledge.

    Its almost amazing how the United States has incorporates a system were they train people like dogs to work for corporations rather then to think for themselves. The dumming down is amazing to me and I am only a freshman. Even though I have mostly A's because the classes are based on memorization not application (which makes no sense), I don't know how long I will last. From all the books I read, sometimes I feel I have no need for a college degree. A college degree is much different then an education, an education is learning things that are fundamental in one's progress. Most of the people in college will spend their lives working for corporations and living life they are unsatisfied with overall. They will keep being influenced by the media and stay trapped in boxes designed for them.

    I remember watching a documentary on Sigmund Frued in my spare time and realizing that the United States media has implimented all his tactics so that people will waste their hard earned money. The government also takes their money via fraud (income tax, etc) and just treats the people terribly! So I say to this post thank you because it is truthful. I think the best way to educate one's self is through books and studying of nature, astronomy, people, and one's own self. Peace
