You really do believe, the story of the one classroom and the burka represents the entire public school system, that is sad. I could sit on a street corner and count red cars until I convinced myself all cars are red, and all people only buy reds cars if I ignored all the others. Or you could think everyone can only relate to television and the movies, if that is all you want to hear, or deduct from what they say. You have a real one track mind, and nobody can convince you otherwise.
You are sounding as desperate as our resident atheists, with a half cocked idea of what they teach in Sunday schools, and they won't listen either.
Oh no Greeny2. The problem is that this is happening more and more in public schools and only gets out to the public when one of the students tells their parents and only when certain of the media bring out the story. Most of the MSM is not interested in this kind of coverage to show what is going on by stealth in our public schools and the religion they are promoting..so one sided. I am speaking here of the officially sanctioned political/government religion.
This is obvious by Monica 1968's lack of response. The are not accustomed to dealing with people who can think outside the standard M1A one sided thinking which all of us are supposed to have ..automatically by default.
This Islamic trend in public schools of which I know came to public notice first in California and to the protest of parents who were quickly ignored. It has been spreading about the nation in the cloistered, sheltered, protected venue of public schools. Are all schools doing this..I don't think so..but more than is being told. And it is going to wax worse and worse....by default. As I stated..only when the parents get notified and in turn speak to only certain news media outlets.
Or you could think everyone can only relate to television and the movies, if that is all you want to hear, or deduct from what they say.
No Green2..not everyone but most can only relate..not everyone but most. And I believe the system is designed and engineered to cause this. This is what I meant by cognative dissonance. Letting your emotions run you without being aware that this is being done to you.
I can see this quickly in the appeal to people like Piers Morgan...or even the talk show circuit..take the emotions and sex/sexuality away..and you have no program.
I think people ..enough of them... have become accustomed to this kind of programming/drama/emotional drug fix. They need it nowdays. And politics is now playing/preying on peoples depencency on this kind of drama, emotions, and non thinking. Leadership is now catering/preying on this very kind of audience and thinking/hoping that they never learn the difference in order to default through on an untutored, undiciplined, unthinking audience...even mob.
This is not leadership Greeny ..it is a predator at work.
Continuing on about your quote above here...
I think I can back this up pretty well Greeny2...by personal experience/knowledge...not by movies and television.
Last summer I went to the campus of William and Mary College in Williamsburg, Virginia. At William and Mary Hall the York High School class of 2012 was having their commencement ceremony. One of the teachers/staff came up to the podium to give his pep speech to the graduating class. To my amazement and astonishment this teacher ...a PHD... gave a speech based on a recent movie called " Hunger Games."
I was dumbstruck. Here we have a PHD ...having gone through all these college courses and the very best...peak performance ...is to quote a movie plot to inspire students. This is the peak of originality that this learned Professor can do.
And this is a voter!!! A movie education.
I had to put my hand over my mouth to stifle my laughing out loud. I was beside my self in the irony...the sickness..the madness. This was excellence/peak performance being witnessed by me. The graduating youngster's mother looked over at me in irritation but the father put his hand on my shoulder and said to me that he caught it..right away. He understood now of what I had been speaking to him in our lengthy topics on thinking and ability to think.
As I have stated many times on this forum, and in person, to people who seem to be able carry on a modicum of thinking ...to note how many people who cannot have a deep conversation without mentioning some movie or television program they have watched. They have obvious movie and television thoughts, movie and television values, movie and television emotions, all of these not their own...but transplants..someone else's thoughts..someone else's emotions..someone else's values. Just like what Monica 1968 posted.
When you see enough of this it becomes obvious what is going on out here. ..or conversely not going on.
I do not bother explaining these concepts to everyone and when I do it on here..it is not necessarily for those to whom I am posting but for those who come through who might read these posts..to stoke their thinking apparatus with something often not taught in public schools or on television and in movies.
What is gratifying is the few to whom I have spoken who get it..quickly and are able to see of what I speak when canvasing the circles of people with whom they relate and what comes out of their mouths and minds. They can now see what does not come out of their minds and mouths..their souls. They now have some new tools with which to work. Tools they previously did not possess.
Greeny2..there are people out here who can indeed relate outside of television and movies..but they are becoming a dying breed out here verses the drama/emotional types. You can see this clearly on these boards/forums.
I think this kind of thing not to be accidental but deliberate..cultivated..desired...even preferred.
As I stated in my earlier post..the people I've seen who are able to work their way out of this standard issue default setting are those who have developed an Anchor. They seem able to do this either by having enough knowledge and informations to reason their way out of it or by being firmly Anchored in the Word...or both.
Oh..by the way Greeny2..in the Shipyard speech yesterday...the topic line came up again about blaming the Rich people out here and "fairness." Default settings!!??
The Rich are guilty of some kind of trespass..a moral and ethical lapse. No trial has taken place..no one is stating what law has been broken by the rich. Yet the educated reasonable, logical, emotional thing is to find them.....the Rich....guilty of some kind of trespass or great immorality. From whence does this kind of default setting come...like the one Monica 1968 tries to use..so to with leadership. Could this come too ..from education..from Public Schooling??
Is someone here attempting to use or misuse the Rich just like those red cars of which you speak??? And then constantly reinforcing it in the minds of an unthinking public..easily emoted into scapegoating someone else?? Using and misusing the Main Stream Media in their pocket to carry the seducing misleading message to the unthinking mobs?? What was that about Nero?? Who did Nero blame?? Whom did others blame in recorded history and not that far back??
Thanks again for your post,.
