Brazil's Marxist Schools Harbinger for West?
May 23, 2015
What can you say about a country that tried to provide textbooks and DVDs depicting gay relationships to six and seven years olds? The initiative was blocked by a Christian Congressmen, after the materials were about to be shipped. The "Ministry of Education" provides manifestos against the patriarchy, capitalism and the white western culture. Instead of studying the classics, white kids are required to learn about religious beliefs and dances from African and indian tribes. They're taught they're responsible for slavery that happened 150 years ago.
Paulo Freire, left, who died in 1997, is the mind behind Brazilian education. He was a Communist who stole the literacy teaching method from Frank Charles Laubach, an American missionary and linguistic genius, and adapted the lessons for the teaching of Marxism to the poor. Every teacher in Brazil must study his books and most adopt his radical views that education should indoctrinate people.
Obviously, a free and critical education is a noble goal, but there are people outside schools who are happy. People with less education are usually more conservative and family focused. They rely on common sense and many are successful in jobs that only require on-the-job training. In a time when plumbers make more money than philosophy majors, this should be easy to see.
However, this is a no-no for Marxists who want 100% of the population in schools to be indoctrinated. It is a common measure to just let students move ahead to the next grade, even if they fail the tests. What matters is pushing kids into the system.
As result, the mass of students graduate from high school without any real qualifications, intellectual or in the form of employable skills. They only have 12 years of political indoctrination. When it's time to apply for college, mediocre students can enter by using racial or social quotas. The whole class is dumbed down to the lowest level. It really doesn't matter because often any poor thesis on Leftist issues is a guarantee of a diploma.
In this way, the Marxists are assured that main positions in journalism, education (pedagogy), history and sociology (the social pundits) and philosophy are filled by faithful militants. These areas are important because they provide the analysis of the current situation and point to solutions in the future. Of course, the solution will always be more Marxism and involvement in the agenda of the new world order. The whole scheme works efficiently because it is self-perpetuating.
In a May 2015 ranking, Brazil placed 60th of 76 countries, only ahead of miserable Fourth World nations, in spite of massive investments in the school system. In 2014, an OECD ranking placed the country in position number 35 among 36 nations. Of course, useless Masters and PhDs diplomas in Marxist political sciences will not help the real economy, Representatives of Engineering Associations asked the government NOT to build any more engineering schools, because new students simply didn't have the mathematical skills required for the course and were forcing universities to teach high school math all over again. Scientists and engineers? Let China provide them.
The atmosphere in the schools is awful. Last week, a 12 year-old girl was raped in a bathroom by three teenage students. Teachers are attacked and beaten on a regular basis. Sexual promiscuity is promoted as a cultural norm.
A recent survey indicated that only 12% of parents follow their kids educational routine and help with homework. The majority simply doesn't take the time to check the texts and books their children are reading. We have to remember that students are vulnerable to peer pressure, fear of being ostracized and ridiculed by the teacher and also of failing. They don't have the emotional maturity and strength to challenge this indoctrination. We have to help them, and even though there are some political initiatives against this onslaught (such as Escola Sem Partido NGO - Schools Without Political Parties), we don't expect they will be successful. Let's take the matter into our hands.
Few parents can afford the luxury of homeschooling. Most have to send their kids to school, and the government wants them in day care from the crib. The only defence we have is to talk to our children. Check whatever materials they are reading. Ask questions. Take your time and present an alternative view. Show them movies (it is easy now with Youtube), buy them books with a conservative approach. Teach them to think independently and to ask pertinent questions. This will take time and effort. You will have to stay away from stupid entertainment developed by the globalists to waste your family time, such as sports, video games and reality TV. You will also have to invest in your own self-development, through systematic reading and research.
Parental authority is biologically ingrained in the brains of kids. Children will respect the opinion of a loving and involved parent. That's why Marxists hate it and why we have to take advantage of it while we can.
