    Here is where some are headed: the end to compulsory school. They have been working hard to eliminate all elements of the social contract. Before now it was inconceivable that their attacks on public education could go this far. But they are punch drunk with their success in state legislatures and their ability to cripple the Federal government. And we are like deer in headlights, because it is so blatantly, outrageously insane to dismantle every vestige of our culture.

      You know, the Afrikaans Apartheid government purposely created an education system that kept blacks inferior and only suitable for labor. And they were very open about it. They were also open about quashing higher education opportunities for blacks because they knew that with more education would come more pushback.

      At times I wonder if this isn't the Koch Master Plan. Then I think, pshaw girl, you don't believe in conspiracy theories. Then I think, hmmmmm...am I sure about that?
