Some of the greatest lies from history have now become our cherished truths.

One such modern ideology has the sweetest public veneer, yet this poison represents the most powerful destroyer of children and learning on this Earth. Its putrid name is Compulsory State Public Education.

The beginning part of the name gives it away entirely, Compulsory State. The second part continues the lies however. It is not public – since it forces itself through political will, top-down, or legal fiat, on both unwary citizens – and even non-citizen residents. Nor has it anything to do with real education. It is actually the opposite of education. Compulsory education actually mutates human consciousness.

This same ideology, and its willing institutions, the schools and education bureaucracies, have structurally combined into forming a slaughterhouse of useless knowledge.

Compulsory State Public Education is the modern state’s most powerful arsenal in the indoctrination and destruction of children’s lives.

It indoctrinates through bogus class divisions between students, such as learning levels, arbitrary class assignments and testing schemes. It destroys young lives through prison-like rule making, dividing students into cliques for greater control, and the institutionalization of boredom, while it severely punishes those who refuse to surrender to such a system, or those recalcitrant rebels who maintain their wills and autonomy after so much legal harassment.

This diabolical system encourages a gross ignorance of our actual reality, while accepting acquiescence towards criminal authorities. Compulsory State Public Education does not produce brave citizens –  instead, it encourages pathetic minds, mindless consumers and potential wage slaves.

Parents ought to beware. How did we get to this state of living where the criminal state now parasites off our children’s minds and bodies?

The stories that hurt me the most, in relation to this ideology, are the ones concerned with bullying. I too suffered bullying when I was kid, and I also participated in such bullying against other kids. Many of us fell into this institutional hell. We were stuck in minimum security jails for kids.

But it is the stories of the kids that eventually kill themselves after so much intolerable bullying at school, and then the school administrators suffer no consequences afterwards. The parents even resign themselves to the loss of their sacred children because it was simply their kids at the wrong place and the wrong time. Then there are the school shootings that have taken place. The most famous one was at a Columbine High School in Colorado.

The reasons for such outbreaks of violence are because Compulsory State Public Education has become the full embodiment of institutional violence, similar to bad paying retail-service sector jobs, local jail-minimum security prisons, and yes, even the army base with its soldier barracks.

Compulsory State Public Education rashes forth from the sewers of Liberalism, which is an ideology more violent, and bursting forth with a greater sacks of lies, than the Psychobabble Quack Cult. The ideology of Marxist Materialism-Socialism-Communism also loves compulsory state schooling. Most of our modern ideologies that worship the State, the government, political hacks, bureaucratic parasitism, authorities, social control, surveillance and the murder of happiness, also support the school institutional system.

Compulsory state education forces the wage slaves living under it to hand over their children, or the prisoners, for a greater part of the day. But some might ask, is it not free?

No, it is never free. The wage slaves are also the taxed and fined ‘citizens,’ and they must hand over even more payments and fees, in order to invest in their own enslavement. This is how our modern capitalist-liberal, ‘free market system’ works.

There is freedom – but only for the political-economic elites who run and game the system. They receive the second chances, while the prisons and the enlisted ranks of the military never touch them.

Super rich parents never send their kids to those state schools. Rather, their children often attend the elite prep-private schools, on the elite private university track. How do you get the children of the losers to support such an unjust and brutal system that regularly destroys their lives? The answer lies in compulsory schooling’s incessant propaganda as a ‘national necessity for a functioning Democracy.’ Compulsory Education now ranks up there in the State echelons, with the cops-police gangs of the State, the military, the flag, the president and the Constitution.

Meanwhile, the street mugger uses brazen violence to get what he wants, while the state mugger uses institutions to hide its crimes. The street mugger eventually winds his way into the prison system, yet the state mugger wins even greater power, prestige, accolades and control.

There are three institutional criminal syndicates that run this particular monster. The first group surrounds the state politicians who continue to pass laws transforming the schools into the growing prison gulag. The methods include increasing the mandatory ages of forced schooling from four to eighteen, augmenting the state minimum requirements in learning useless crap, extending the school year from August to July, imprisoning both teenagers and parents for truancy, imposing regular police officers to watch, arrest and imprison unruly students, creating gun free-drug free school zones while giving students’ names and addresses to military recruiters, so that they can become cannon fodder during the coming war.

The second junta call themselves ‘education leaders,’ or administrators, where they actually receive bogus degrees from flim flam university graduate programs. These are the chancellors and superintendents, their assessors and their advisers, and a whole slew of desk sitting, e-mail sending positions who teach no classes, rarely visit the schools, do no useful work – yet mandate ‘educational policies.’ They are the commandeering class with the annual increases of six figure salaries, excellent benefits and generous life pensions.

Under them are the junior officers, or the school principals and vice principals. All of whom eventually aspire to those Board of Education office desk positions with beginning six figure salaries, great state benefits and even greater state pensions – all paid by the same tax slaves.

The third cabal culminates with the teacher’s unions. The newer teachers are actually at the bottom rung of the hierarchy.

After doling out thousands of bank loaned money to the university fraud ‘education school,’ in order to become ‘certified,’ the beginner teachers have to work very long hours, and often receive the worst classes.

The reason for this underhanded tactic is that the unions run themselves just like the corrupt Boards of Educations. The union bosses also receive six figure salaries, with wondrous benefits and even greater pension plans. The bosses don’t care about the saps that owe money to the state and to the banks. Many of those first year losers get burned out from the terrible work and terrible pay. They rightfully escape teaching altogether.

This rotten institution leaves the few survivors who eventually receive ‘seniority benefits,’ and who often become jaded, brutally cynical and even transform into crazy people. This small group of ‘teachers’ possessing seniority, in due course, earn stable salaries, not exactly six figure salaries, but enough money to make rent paying easier, and they finally receive the cushion teaching jobs, like library positions or a desk at the principal office.

The union hacks support these teacher-parasites because they have already paid thousands of union dues money into the syndicate. After so much teacher turnover, there are not many of these hanger-ons left. This also means more personal money left over for the union ‘jefe’ crooks.

The compulsory state school system has become its own self-sustaining political economy, and now it is one of the most important management systems inside the decaying Amerikan Empire run by Sociopaths. If one travels in most small towns and rural counties across the western US, this crooked system is the biggest employer around. It doesn’t just have teachers and administrators, but also includes yellow bus school drivers, road guards, school board councils, school janitors and class-hall aid monitors.

The compulsory state school political economy is up there with the other big, exploitive employer-institutions around town: the Medical-Hospital-social services-HMO-Insurance complex, both the state and private prison system, the regional state university, civilian contractor-US military base structure, housing construction, which hires both legal and illegal workers, and general service industry jobs: legal front staff workers of waitresses and bartenders, while most back kitchens hire illegals. Meanwhile, structural inflation and unemployment continue to grow exponentially.

Compulsory State Public Education is a modern phenomenon. It has always aligned itself closely with the growth of the Modern State. The Modern State did not coalesce into its current malformations until the late eighteenth-century and during entire nineteenth-century, from 1790-1890.

From the fanatical Liberalism of the French Revolution, the dictator Napoleon began the process of a centralized, nationalist-identity curriculum, in order to further patriotism with a proud ‘national spirit’ for future wars. The Prussian Empire, first defeated by Napoleon, and later, helping to defeat the Beast, with the British and other nationalities at Waterloo, perfected this same putrid ‘educational system’ representing total control and bogus authority.

The Prussian State, implying its military machine, maintained complete power over the mental formations of its children. It imposed an imperial wide, centralized curriculum, and an instruction led and managed institution through teachers and administrators, called ‘gymnasiums.’

This rotten system included rote memorization schemes, punishments for slower students, military bells between classes, and constant repetition of movement while shuttling between rooms. This kid jail transposed the modern army manual to the actual classroom dynamic. You were either a good obedient student-slave, or a dysfunctional rebel-loser. Woe unto the ones who didn’t conform – German culture would hound them mercilessly until they dropped dead of shame and hopelessness.

While this militarist-statist imperial system coalesced, American copycat intellectuals visited the German Prussian provinces for some ideas. Two such intellectuals were Horace Mann and Henry Barnard from Massachusetts. These two rightly understood that Massachusetts Bay Colony had been the first colony to institute forced schooling for children, and so they infiltrated the state government of Massachusetts and set up a legal system for mandated compulsory schooling. This was during the 1840s-50s.

Another state bureaucrat emerged on the political scene, always anxious for more power with a good pay scale: the educator. The educator cabals in many other states also instituted compulsory schooling laws – but to their detriment, they had no way of enforcing them.

Most young people in the early American republic either learned at home, while working on the farm or plantation, or they worked as apprentice-journeymen for master artisans. Abraham Lincoln and Mark Twain were two such people. These great men often attended school for a short time, or for no time at all.

With the growth of Progressivism in the late nineteenth-century, American capitalist magnates, such as John D. Rockefeller, called for reforms to the system in order to save Capitalism from its downturns. Owner potentates worked with ‘social justice reformers’ to end the use of child labor, and thereby allow moderate union influences, or company unions, within certain industries.

Some American Federation of Labor, (the AFL), union bosses joined the Reformist call, and so the US Congress enacted it first anti-child labor laws. The union hacks thought that this would open more jobs for men, and especially with all the recent immigrants to the country. As usual, they were wrong.

The capitalists had another card up their sleeves – women workers. What to do with all the children out of work, while many of these immigrants lived in urban slums? The capitalists rallied for a better educated workforce that could read diagrams and do simple math equations. They joined with the Social Justice Reformers in supporting state compulsory schooling. The robber barons never sent their children to such schools, of course.

Everything changed after World War I. In the 1920s, with the institutionalization of a National Income Tax, a federal political police, the FBI, and the First Red Scare against anti-war radicals, state governments also created enforcement agents to persecute the anti-compulsory schooling people, called ‘truancy officers.’

During President Roosevelt’s National Socialist program in the 1930s, most state compulsory schools changed their names to ‘public schools,’ and they all had state Boards of Educations enforcing not just attendance requirements, but also state-wide curriculum standards. One such monstrous school ritual introduced was the so-called ‘Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag’ with students giving a Fascist-like arm salute!

The culmination of compulsory schooling’s power was President Carter’s increasing the federal government bureaucracy with the nefarious Department of Education in the 1970s – whose agents now carry lethal weapons. The Department of Education has always been in the forefront of promoting National Standards Education, testing programs, placement systems, remedial classes, disciplinary sanctions, Special Education sections, High School Graduation to University Access, and other dubious rackets. Those federal bureaucrats only care about amassing more power and increasing their own six figure salaries with full federal benefits and pensions.

For most of us, our compulsory schooling experiences have been horrible and traumatic – and for good reason. Parents who truly love their own children don’t let them rot and torture within such hideous state operations. They often home school them, send them to private academies, set up Free Schools, or they have their children attend particular charter schools.

The bureaucrats are not finished however. They still persecute homeschoolers and seek to force alternative education programs, such as Summerhill, Montessori and Sterner schools to align their studies with garbage state mandates. So far, homeschooling resistance in the States has refused such cowardice.

As long as we demand our own autonomy as human agents, then we must always resist the Modern State and its Compulsory State Public Jail-Schools. Children are not enemies for subjugation, nor good consumers, nor future wage slaves, nor even potential state assassins in the military – they are humans just like us, and deserve such respect.

 Capitalism works for allFilipino-homeless-kidsSaigoncasino-capitalismEnjoy CapitalismCocoa-Child-Laborerchina-wage slave

We are all living under an excrescence of legal murder and sustained institutional violence. What did we do to deserve such a horrid fate of hate and destruction? Why did the political-economic elites choose us for extermination?

Only Real and Actual History can answer such doubts. The false and bad history narratives beam and scream their constant bile on the TV and Hollywood cinema screens. At least we still have the Internet where we can read about the truth and then write something about it.

With all of the ongoing, terrible economic news, and an even more horrible political-economic forecast, there are still those soul breaking stories that emerge from the media refuse.

I will never forget one recent story about a builder who always had good-paying, stable work for most of his life – but then suddenly, he was out of work. He drove and roamed around the city in his pickup truck looking for some stable employment, or some decent paying job for his skills set. And unlike myself, a useless PhD bum in the humanities, he did have real skill sets in construction, and he also possessed a long work history of builder experience.

He eventually found some temporary jobs as a regular construction laborer, but his work itinerary was so fleeting that he had a hard time surviving in his bank owned house and dealer owned truck. It was hard to keep one’s head above water through all of the endless billings and the scams of modern living.

With a substantially lowered wage and a spotty work schedule, he just could not survive paying all those mortgage and truck financing dues, utility rates, rising food costs, pay stub withholding taxes, annual city, state and federal taxes, state sales taxes, vehicle maintenance costs, and finally, the forced, gouging insurance rates from Obamacare and the state Division of Motor Vehicles. There were other open and hidden costs that I probably forgot to mention. Almost all of his surplus money vacuumed into endless payments, indirect taxation, fees, added-on rates and hidden fines.

One day finally, the poor and broken man of previous social respectability took his last honorable decision. He would not join the lumpen class poor and accept government or personal handouts. He could never lower his dignity to beg, borrow and steal. Desperate indigents often have to debase themselves for some survival money after demeaning bouts of prison or homelessness.

He would just kill himself, and go for the stoical death with dignity. He entered his truck one last time, turned on some tunes, and kept the truck running – he was just inside the garage the whole time. He let the diesel and carbon monoxide finish his last personal work. He was in his mid-forties and he left a wife and a kid.

What could drive such a decent, hard working man to do such a thing?

The fault mainly lies with those cheap and dishonest ‘landscaping-construction’ business owners who regularly employ illegal aliens or young kids still in high school, so they can pay substandard wages and keep the payroll off the legal accounting books. Those bad owners also allow substandard construction work while bilking the customers for ‘extra hours and materials’ on the job. But there are other culprits that this essay must name.

That honest man refused to live as criminal or an ex-con where he could have received some free money from a local, ‘urban progressive’ government – and possibly a foreign vacation too – all for the ‘promise of not robbing and killing anymore.”

He was also born a male. If he was a poor woman, he could have pumped out three different kids from different fathers, and so become permanently hitched to the government payroll sugar daddy. In the Amerikan imperial nightmare, there are benefits for others and nothing for the unemployed male.

He was too old. Ageism triumphs in the job hire jungle of capitalism. This monstrosity of corruption prefers the young and immature because they are easier to abuse and intimidate – like any good slaves. Yet is it not an outrage that every job offer fraud always demands ‘experience’?

He obviously did not know anyone, or have any ‘good contacts,’ or even some inside ‘family members,’ possessing those cushion, do-nothing, well-paying government-parasite jobs within city-county-state-federal bureaucracies. The less work one does, the higher up on the wage scale.

Or was it just another downturn in the economy usually instigated through those evil central banking elites, and the poor man felt depressed about the scary future on the horizon. Most Americans hate the poor – including the poor themselves.

He was screwed, like millions of other hard working American families across the continent – and across every land on Earth. Like many Americans, he blamed himself for his failure to secure some stable employment with decent pay. What crooked system could transform a hardworking man of experience into another economic loser statistic?

The correct historical answer is our current capitalist system, global monopoly capitalism.

The history of capitalism has exposed a criminal political-economy of false justice and even more dubious political-legal systems. Yet like most structured political-economies, this twisted ball of corrupt vines and dishonest strings slowly strangles its victims into an even deadlier code of violence. Capitalism, unlike Feudalism, Paternalism, or any other historical economic set up, has been winning the war of extermination against family solidarity and sustainable communities.

Our current unlivable system of Global Monopoly Capitalism annihilates any attempts to form a stable family and maintain a thriving self-sustaining community. Many of the lower classes try, and a few succeed in preserving the family unit, but they are fighting a losing battle with history – and capitalism will destroy them too eventually.

Capitalism rots the insides of all the nations upon this Earth, and so there is no escape. Ultimately, the history of capitalism has exposed a relentless political-economic system, which has successfully exterminated all and every auto-sufficient small community on our Globe.

Aboriginals in Australia, Pacific Islander societies, Native communities in the Americas, auto-preserving farming communities in Asia, and cattle raising-agricultural communities in Africa – all of them have had their bittersweet lives ended through the invasions, oppression, and infiltration of global capitalism. Capitalism utilized all of the deadly arts of European imperial tactics: Imperialist Violence, Mission Christianity, and Settler Colonialism to fulfill and accomplish all of its heinous, subversive work. Capitalism annihilated those true anarchist communities, (those with no legal state craft), because they lived on auto-sufficiency. They had too much honor and dignity to sell themselves as wage slave commodities on the ‘labor markets.’

Capitalism’s rancid breath survives on ever greater market opportunities across-inside-above the entire Earth, and at the same time, it needs an ever greater reserve army of labor to herd into their ‘work to live in order to die’ traps. Capitalism and the State always work together for their inside jobs – and this scenario also includes the despicable Socialist regimes. This sinister tag team is still murdering and purifying the courageous holdouts to this very day. Think for example on the traditional cultures of Afghanistan, East Africa and Yemen.

Capitalism murders solidarity through removing the family from any land or any household productions that can sustain some auto-sufficiency. It then forces the family to move from its generational roots to the brutal urban wasteland of suburban slums, also filled with the countless uprooted and unknowns. This noxious system then enlists each family member individually for precarious employment. Instead of a family unit, each member transforms into a wage slave employee who must then daily travel, back and forth, to the foreign work site, spending most of his working and traveling day and night, with all the other peon wage slaves.

Within each family, some family member must make the ultimate sacrifice to travel far and wide, and then live a great amount of distance from the unit in order to earn more survival money. The family soon loses its old identity as a small community of solidarity, and now each member is rated according to his or her earning potential. When some family member dies and leaves an inheritance will, then the personal animosities truly burst out into the open.

Once the family loses its roots, the greater communities lose their power. Towns often become dead villages of old people, women with babies, and the indigent poor who must survive on both parish and county services. The rest of population has to constantly change addresses and find another urban squalor settlement for ‘work opportunities.’ As the urban dynamic grows out of proportion, with more and more desperate wage slaves looking for less and less available jobs, life turns mean, nasty, brutish and dispiriting. The urban vices of the poor proliferate, such as petty criminality, drug-alcohol addiction, abandonment, neglect and brutal violence.

As both institutional and street crime increases, each job seeker feels alienated from the other competitors. The peons fight each other for the crap wages and the discarded scraps of the rich, while the owners continually blame the poor and working classes for their own culture of ‘social degeneracy.’ Meanwhile, the state in the pay of the owner elites, sends the ‘forces of order,’ usually the police forces, to intimidate the economic throw away populations. This debasing cycle continues its death-dealing, downward spirals, like an overflowing sewer drain during a flood.

Friedrich Engels wrote about such conditions in his book, The Condition of the Working Class in England, (1845). His books is a testimony to the brutal alienation, resigned poverty, and social misery of everyday life for England’s working classes.

In densely populated slums all across northern England, neighbors could barely interact with each other because entire families, parts of families, fathers, sons and daughters, had to constantly move about, work at odd hours and times, and even travel to other parts of the British Empire – in order to eat and ‘make a living.’ Life was precarious in those times, and the factory owners fired workers for the flimsiest of excuses.

For over a century, thousands of young men without work had ‘to go to sea,’ in order to avoid forced slavery and an early death in the workhouses, or even ending one’s life press ganged by the captain’s thugs into the ‘naval service.’ The Royal Marines made sure that no press ganged victims escaped.

For most of the previous century, stealing bread for hunger could get one hanging like an old pig corpse at the wooden catafalque. The British Empire in its masterful hate forced the forsaken poor into ’emigration schemes’ towards the ‘convict colonies,’ where they often had to work to death as ‘indentured laborers.’ The old colonial plantation lists of infamy included, Virginia, Barbados, Carolina, Jamaica, Georgia and ultimately, Australia.

From the late Seventeenth-Century, or the 1600s on, the English working class had five doleful identity changing life choices ahead. The first choice was to just drink gin liquor, starve slowly to death due to malnutrition, and die on the side of a slum road. The second one was entering the workhouse, the prison gang, the ship galley crew, or if lucky, the lord’s domestic service – and eventually die over there, where one might never see his or her family again.

If the worker had a little saved capital, then a personal emigration scheme would possibly function in another part of Europe, or somewhere else on the globe for any decent paying job. Another passable option was military service, where the recruit became a peon soldier ready to murder his fellow working class agitators, rebellious African slaves, or any other colonized victim that could not fight back – while receiving physical punishments, rotten food and bad pay. The final option was to go pirating, plundering and highwayman work, or in our contemporary lingo, become a career criminal. And why not? The aristocratic parasite class lived an easy life of no work, no struggle, and there were always separate laws for their legal criminality.

After long centuries of grinding, non-stop Capitalist production with its miserable living conditions, this merciless political economy has continually pushed millions of honorable men and women to their bad deaths – just like our unfortunate American builder who had to gas himself in his bank owned garage, so he could maintain his honor.

In the late nineteenth-century, the 1800s, the trade union took the social-political initiative in fighting back against the onslaught of Capitalism’s institutional violence. From this worker led movement, and the brutal repression that followed, working class political parties emerged throughout Europe who defended their political interests. The social democracy system birthed on that continent.

But now, all of those same ‘leaders’ have sold out to the Enemy. Union and political party bosses make similar salaries, with decent social benefits, as the corporate elites – they are supposedly fighting against.

Capitalism has successfully ripped us from our roots and origins. At the present moment, our families take their identities from their ‘jobs.’ We must all beg and plead to other family members who have some extra capital in order to survive physically on this cruel Earth. The modern family is strictly an economic unit of consumption. Its sordid truth comes out in the will and testament divvying after Death.

How many of us truly know our neighbors – or even care to know our neighbors? Our contemporary ‘communities’ are often imagined ones wedded to work schemes, advertising-publicity media lies, ideological sects, hobby clubs, gang units, or just some other ‘mystical chords of union.’ With defeated minds, we excrete our dreams inside the colonized caverns of the already dead.
