Libertarians Can’t Leave Their Love of Toll Roads

Polls reveal that Amer­i­cans oppose tolling. It has tak­en awhile to get there, but the anti-tolling move­ment is get­ting trac­tion now. Reason’s Robert Poole rec­og­nizes the threat grass­roots anti-toll move­ment orga­ni­za­tions like Ter­ri Hall’s TURF pos­es to the tax­­pay­er-sub­­si­dized tolling indus­try that was spawned over­seas decades ago, pri­mar­i­ly in social­ist Europe. It is bewil­der­ing that […]

Propagandizing the K‑12 Classroom to Create Desired Worldviews for Change: the New Anti-Bias Standards

If we think of the Com­mon Core as a buck­et or a ban­ner instead of pre­tend­ing it is about the trans­mis­sion of knowl­edge, its func­tion becomes much clear­er. All the changes that would cause an out­cry if pur­sued sep­a­rate­ly, and in many cas­es already have cre­at­ed wide­spread pop­u­lar rejec­tion, get to Come on Down Anyway […]

What Educrats Won’t Tell You…

Day 18: Skin­ner Hor­ror Files Your Child, the Lab Rat?! See yes­ter­day’s post “School-To-Prison-Pipeline” Sys­tem? Then exam­ine care­ful­ly the graph­ics in this post. This tells a more com­plete sto­ry about Oper­ant Con­di­tion­ing. Sim­i­lar graph­ics were used on pre­vi­ous posts this month dur­ing our “Skin­ner Hor­ror Files” series. But these images have an added element.


Through my research, I have con­clud­ed that the New World Order is real.  It has form and func­tion.  There is a strat­e­gy to it.  And it is in fact, cross-gen­er­a­­tion­al.  The pur­pose the media serves is to run cov­er for it.  That means they tell you the truth if it serves the agen­da.  They will […]

School-To-Prison-Pipeline” System?

Day 17: Skin­ner Hor­ror Files Oper­ant Con­di­tion­ing Includes PUNISHMENT Don’t ever for­get this! Penal­ties, pun­ish­ment… it is all part of the sys­tem of oper­ant con­di­tion­ing and an inte­gral part of the method. And when par­ents find out about this, they often get upset. Very upset.

Grooming Students for A Lifetime of Surveillance

The same tech­nol­o­gists who protest against the NSA’s meta­da­ta col­lec­tion pro­grams are the ones prof­it­ing the most from the wide­spread sur­veil­lance of stu­dents. Since 2011, bil­lions of dol­lars of ven­ture cap­i­tal invest­ment have poured into pub­lic edu­ca­tion through pri­vate, for-prof­it tech­nolo­gies that promise to rev­o­lu­tion­ize edu­ca­tion. Designed for the “21st cen­tu­ry” class­room, these tools promise […]


This edu­ca­tion mod­el is a recur­ring, failed edu­ca­tion mod­el being dupli­cat­ed with new names over the past sev­er­al decades. The ref­er­ence to a stu­dent is “human cap­i­tal.” This val­ue-added def­i­n­i­tion address­es the worth of an indi­vid­ual to busi­ness. There are many old­er names for Out­come Based Edu­ca­tion. Com­mon Core State Stan­dards, CCSS, is the newest […]
