Brainwashing in UK Schools?

Pupils are being ‘brainwashed’ in Britain’s classrooms to believe that Tories are ‘evil’, a high profile teacher has claimed…

But the IT teacher has now come out said pupils were being ‘indoctrinated to a left wing mentality’ and encouraged to see the Conservative party as ‘evil’.

That reality illustrates just how the education system has become increasingly gripped by a culture of Orwellian groupthink, where only fashionable, Left-wing opinions are deemed acceptable. Any wish to deviate from this outlook — such as by backing Brexit or the Conservatives — is treated as a kind of heresy, an offensive challenge to the ruling creed.

UN: Education a Threat to Sustainability

“Generally, more highly educated people, who have higher incomes, consume more resources than poorly educated people, who tend to have lower incomes,” explains a UN “toolkit” for global “sustainable” education, which is still posted online at UNESCO’s website. “In this case, more education increases the threat to sustainability.”

Insisting on “Rights” All the Time

Not long afterward this highly respectable couple were feeding together in the moonlight. “What do you think of the Mole?” said she.

[172] “Well,—er—ahem,” answered her husband. “You know, my dear, that I do not like to talk against people, and I might better not tell you exactly what I think of him. He is a queer-looking fellow, and I always distrust anyone who will not look me in the eye. Perhaps that is not his fault, for the fur hides his eyes and he wears his ears inside of his head; but I must say that a fiercer or more disagreeable-looking snout I never saw. He has had trouble with all his old neighbors, and a fellow who cannot get along peaceably in one place will not in another. He is always talking about his rights and what he thinks——”

“You have told me enough,” said Mrs. Ground Hog, interrupting him. “Nobody ever liked a person who insists on his ‘rights’ every time. And such a person never enjoys life. What a pity it is!” and she gave a sigh that shook her fat sides.

The Overton Bubble, ie. Intellectual Martial Law

Neal Devers, The Overton Bubble:

The trouble with the Overton Window as a mechanism of political control, and with politicization of speech and thought in general, is that it causes significant collateral damage on the ability of your society to think clearly.

If some thoughts are unthinkable and unspeakable, and the truth happens in some case to fall outside of polite consensus, then your ruling elite and their society will run into situations they simply can’t handle….

An unwise political elite is one incapable of thinking clearly about their strategic situation, acting in concert, or sticking to a plan….

An insecure political elite is one which has either no sufficient mechanisms of political power short of the politicization of speech and thought, or is faced by such powerful but somehow never decisively powerful enemies that they need to permanently escalate to a state of vigorous politicization of speech and thought. We can compare this state to “intellectual martial law” for its structural similarity to the physical-security equivalent.

The Prayer of Australia’s Parliament

Apparently, this prayer is said in Australia’s Parliament.  How long that will continue I cannot say:

“Almighty God, we humbly beseech Thee to vouchsafe Thy special blessing upon this Parliament, and that Thou wouldst be pleased to direct and prosper the work of Thy servants to the advancement of Thy glory, and to the true welfare of the people of Australia.”
