The Miseducation of America – Part 2 (by Charlotte Iserbyt)

‘The Secret History of Western Education: The Scientific Destruction of Minds’ Charlotte Thompson Iserbyt served as the head of policy at the Department of Education during the first administration of Ronald Reagan. While working there she discovered a long term strategic plan by the Tax Exempt Foundations to transform America from a nation of rugged individualists and problem solvers to a country of servile, brainwashed minions who simply regurgitate whatever they’re told. In part one of this exclusive interview, Iserbyt breaks down how conditioning/training under a corporate agenda has replaced traditional education, leading to a deliberate dumbing down of Americans. Iserbyt further explains how Reagan signed agreements merging the US and Soviet systems under the United Nations banner, turning over education and many other areas of public policy to global control. This two-part exposé is a must see for anyone who wants to truly know why the education system is deliberately crafted to produce human drones with no critical thinking whose only skills are to be subservient, trust authority and follow orders. Visit Iserbyt’s website at www.deliberatedumbingdown.com Charlotte Iserbyt uncovers the history of this secret order and reveals just how big this elite club at Yale really is and how much political power they have wield over the past 180 years. Iserbyt reveals the connection of her father and grandfather to the elite Skull & Bones secret society, including an exclusive

    I said no inherent meaning aka objective meaning, independent of human beings. Therefore, everything is meaningless.

    The Universe can neither be meaningless nor can it have meaning because meaning is a “human construct” that does only apply to us and not the universe. So we humans will always have a meaning in the universe :)

    He says that meaning is given by getting patients, particularly suicidal patients, to ‘imagine a better human future’, but what if people, looking objectively, see no meaning in humanity – understand that we live in a meaningless and random universe, with no inherent meaning, or at least a meaning we cannot know. What if they feel that? How can you convince them that the cosmos is meaningful?

    Maybe he’s not the most polished speaker, AND his work is life changing. Read his latest book, Flourish, and experience what he talks about here.

    Most people are not flourishing–since we only get one trip on Earth, why not live it to the fullest. That’s what his work is about.

    Dr Seligman has not only identified the optimal criteria (Or at least many of them) for a “Happy life”* but is actively working on creating strategies and action plans to bring these elements in a persons life more actively in to play. This Man has enormous clarity of thought and expresses his understanding extremely effectively.

    * Do not particularly like my choice of word “Happy” – would expand this definition to include fulfilling, evolving, self-actualising.

    “Worldview” is perfectly acceptable and makes much more sense, thanks.
    Religion is a stifling… I agree :)

    In context of the conversation, it’s mere semantics. Use the word “worldview” instead if you dislike the word “religion”.

    Surely you’d agree that if one’s worldview is personally inappropriate and stifling, a change of worldview *can* provide hope and meaning. Merely as a lifting of a stifling force that was perchance making someone feel trapped and hopeless.

    speaking from personal experience, i try to avoid pro-religious talks where the speaker is at risk of being overtly self-serving. I don’t for example want to watch a talk given by a nun about how religion is great.

    I’d only want to hear such controversial things from someone whom i trust, and apparently there isn’t many speakers on the topic who meet that criteria.
    Unless you have some video suggestions?

    The person who decided its ok to not normalise the audio to the full dynamic range before uploading all those RSA videos should go die in a fire.

    atheism is not a religion, it is a lack of religion. No gods, no prayers, no ceremonies, no hierarchy, and in and of itself provides no “hope”

    I think you are pretty defeatist – I believe (and it has been shown time and time agian) that religion gives hopes to others. I am actually an athiest but guess what; atheism is a religion too giving hope to people about there place int he universe. The problem is not with religion, it is with how people use the idea. But oppression happen outside it too (in fact to a much worse degree in politics and so on) so do not blame religion for the fault of the use of it.

    religion =/= hope and putting meaning in life to bring happiness. the latter can exist without the former. not that religion ever really lastingly exhibits the latter either. mostly religion is a club-mentality of legitimated oppression or ignorance imposed unto oneself and others under the guise of culture and freedom.

    despite how obsolete it is, religion will probably have a half-life that rivals selenium…

    Why is it we have talks like this that talk about how religion in its basic self is in fact good for us (the creation of hope and putting meaning in life to bring happiness) and people seem to ignore it but when we see another one on culture and more based in physical science there is a wave of comments talking about banishing religion. Is it simply a form of people only wanting to hear things they agree with or is there soemthing fundamental that I am missing?
