“Teen Culture” is the New Imperialism, and it is Destroying the World | The Daily Bell

Preindustrial societies mostly exhibit a continuum from childhood to adulthood. There is generally no random cut off age where suddenly teens are given rights and expected to become adults. Children seamlessly and gradually integrate into adulthood, with puberty rites being the only major benchmark.

These societies were “free-range parenting” before it was cool. Even toddlers have a large degree of autonomy. The child is allowed to explore, and the mother provides the nurturing, feeding, and love at the child’s initiation. Young children participate in the work of their parents and elders and interact and learn from people of all ages.

In the late 1980s early 1990s, the George Bush Sr. years, all of US education was taken over by an operation that, at the lease, involved Mossad and the IDF working in the US on “education reform” which pushed “outomes based” education, which was pushed on every state and every school district in the country. The take-over and reorganization was sold as a grass-roots effort. It was anything but that. As a parent I fought it and joined with other parents in fighting it. I collected a lot of information on how the Soviet Education system was obtained in exchange for computer technology in 1985. All of the “reforms,” although represented as “grass roots” demands we in fact uniform, with an end to everything but cookie cutter education, test-centered and highly intrusive and restricting – giving everyone the same education with no more discretion of the teacher to customize education according to a childs interests or aptitude, but mostly to imposee “learning objectives” and testing, and the child not going anywhere until he complies with the objectives — which, as I knew it would — turned out to include in every course modified a political correctness that actually had nothing to do with education in the old sense. After all it was the Soviet Education system of the communist USSR imposed on America — with our children’s suicide rates increasing to the rate found in the Soviet Union. That was one step in the take-over.

News With Views | Guns, Culture, And The Last Century’s Seismic Shift

February 28, 2018 by · Leave a Comment 

Obviously, Anglo-American popular culture underwent a long-term seismic shift during the last century. A single article can’t begin to cover all its effects, from music to film and television to technology and its effects.

The materialist worldview had dominated the scientific-philosophical world for at least three decades by the time of the Depression, of course. Leading British philosopher Bertrand Russell had penned this classic defense of science-based atheism back in 1903. He was not the first to announce that ethically, we were essentially on our own with our “ideals.”

Philosophies such as French existentialism (major exemplars: Jean-Paul Sartre and Albert Camus) were responses in a broad sense to materialist atheism. They focused not on “ideals” so much as on the condition of the human person in a world rendered meaningless and absurd — where we have (as Johnny Rotten would “sing” years later) “no future” except the grave.
