I used to teach English at a high school. Looking back, I now realize the cultural subversion that was contained in the reading list.
Here is the gist of the stories that we read:
- Death of a Salesman – The traditional American family is a sham (i.e. the adulterous and pathetic Willie Loman).
- The Crucible – The Pilgrims were adulterous hypocrites; thus, the foundation of America is suspect.
- Of Mice and Men – The business owner is evil (i.e. the ranch owner); the ignorant worker is noble (i.e. George and Lennie).
- Song of Solomon – The black American should be an angry victocrat from a broken family.
- Farewell to Manzanar – World War 2 was a time of American atrocities (i.e. the Japanese internment in California).
- Animal Farm – The government is evil (i.e. the pigs).
- Romeo and Juliet – Your parents don’t know what’s good for you.
It’s little wonder that so many Americans are broken: fat, divorced, drugged out. Their formative years are soiled by a denigrating Weltanschauung. They’re encouraged to hate America, to mock the traditional family, and to embrace poverty. They’re encouraged to be losers.
Now I know why so many parents are home schooling their children. Public education is a poisoning of the mind—a factory that’s producing a generation of broken Americans.
