Reclaiming the Family – Part 8 – School

All of the nonsense that has been going on with schools adopting CRT to teach our children that white people are evil has made it painfully obvious that leaving your children’s education in the hands of the politicians and the school boards and the teacher’s unions is wildly irresponsible.  They’ve already ruined at least two whole generations of Americans in the last forty years.  We can’t afford to let them finish the job off in the next twenty.

The options aren’t great, and in some places, choices are nonexistent.  But just ignoring the problem means handing over the future of your children to terrible people who will fill their heads full of dangerous lies and nonsense.  So do the work and find out what your options are.  Let’s take this in order from best to worst.

The very best-case scenario is you live in a place where the state government and the local town government hasn’t allowed progressives to poison the curriculum with things like an anti-American version of history.  And even if this is true and even in the best of places there will have crept in the insidious poison of diversity and inclusion.  That means that lessons on George Washington and Daniel Boone will be pushed aside to drag out Harriet Tubman and whatever other Civil War holdovers they’ve dug up to impress on the children all the important contributions that minority members have made to America.  So instead of Alexander Graham Bell, and Henry Ford and Thomas Alva Edison they’ll dig up the guy who invented the traffic light because he was black.  Never mind that the telephone, the automobile and the electrification of the United States were revolutions that changed the way human beings lived everywhere on Earth.  But they were straight white men so they want to drop them down the memory hole.  So that is what you are dealing with.

But this is the best case.  So maybe your school is even better than that.  They give them the real history and just sprinkle a little Harriet Tubman on at the end.  In that case congratulations.  If the teachers aren’t crazy radicals, you’ll be able to have your kids go to the local public school without turning them into woke losers.

But let’s move down the ladder from there.  Suppose the local school is much worse.  Then you’ll find that not only are the kids being indoctrinated with the whole inclusivity/diversity claptrap but in addition, they are being handed critical race theory on top of that.  They are being systematically taught that white people are evil people who by their very nature enslave other races and even in our modern free society are responsible for all inequality and injustice.  And in addition to the racial component there will be the LGBTQ propaganda.  They will learn that the worst of white people are straight men.  That queer people are being driven to suicide by horrendously bad treatment and that even straight women are the victims of systematic oppression by the “Patriarchy.”  They might even try to convince your kids that they’re actually not the boys or girls they were born as but the opposite.  That they’re actually wonderful trans people who with the magic of hormone therapy and castration or mastectomy can change their sex and become some wonderful new monster.

So, if this is your local school then you have to look for the next alternative.  If circumstances allow and you can find a town with better schools nearby you could move.  If that is unrealistic then you could look for a religious or private school that specifically avoids these types of problems.  If you can find such a school it would be your best alternative.  But be aware it will not be cheap.  It will be very expensive.

If that is either unavailable or just beyond your financial means then the next choice is some kind of home schooling.  Now I can think of two ways this could be done.  One is for the mother to stay home and teach the children herself.  This may be very difficult.  Losing a salary may be extremely painful for some families.  But it has the added advantage that you’ll know exactly what your children are learning.  But if homeschooling is impossible to arrange then as a final option you can allow your children to go to the poisonous woke school but provide additional and counteracting instruction yourself either at night or on the weekends.  You can look at the lessons that they get from school and provide corrections for these that allow the children to see how they are being misled.  You can even explain to the children that we live in a world where the truth is being suppressed by the government and it’s necessary for those who would know the truth to pass it along clandestinely.  And in fact, since children enjoy rebellious behavior, you might find it easier than you think to engage your children in this dissident behavior.  If handled correctly they can even fulfill the requirements of the fake history and social studies they are taking but with the added advantage that they know the true story underneath and will see the subtly of how life in an occupied country has to be managed.  This will actually give you something to bond over and will force you to have good answers for the charges that Leftists level against Western Civilization.

So, these are the choices I can think of for us going forward.  Hopefully in the future school choice will be something that our side demands to prevent their toxic schools from being our only choices.  But for now, we must be adaptable to the existing situation and do everything we can to prevent our children from being buried in their lies.

What Happens When Your Identity is Declared Evil?

Whiteness, White Privilege, Unconscious Bias, Systemic Racism, Critical Race Theory.  What they say it all means is that just by being myself I am doing wrong.  What they want me to do is spend all my time somehow atoning for being me.  I need to give up my culture, heritage and history and pretend that I believe the lies about those things they say and grovel and pay reparations forever for being me.  Sounds wonderful.

I am aware that there are white people who will do this.  Maybe there are a lot of them.  But at the same time there are a lot who won’t.  And if the powers that be and the cultural trend setters declare this to be the cultural norm of our society then these people who won’t submit will become a separate culture.  We will celebrate different holidays; worship develop different customs and eventually use a different language.  And already we see this happening.  What hasn’t happened yet is the result of this.  Some of the results will be separate religions, separate schools and specialty businesses to cater to the needs of this separate identity.  The schools and religions will need books and videos and other instructional materials to teach the beliefs that are forbidden in the outside culture.  In the case of the present Woke Culture it means that foods will be differentiated too.  Our people will eat meat while the Woke will be eating bugs or at best tofu.  Even our cars and homes will be different.  We’ll be driving gasoline powered vehicles and they will be charging up their battery cars and mostly driving bicycles.  We will be living in homes heated by gas or oil and they will be living in underground dugouts buried under a sod roof full of cockroaches and warming themselves by a solar and wind powered space heater.

In fact, we will need parallel companies to provide us with much of what we need.  We’ll even need our own companies to employ us.  After all we’ll be untouchables.  No self-respecting woke corporation will employ a white man who doesn’t submit to a weekly struggle session where he confesses some new atrocity to his BIPOC coworkers.

All this seems excessive.  After all, why not just work for Google and buy your crap from Amazon?  Many will, maybe most.  But there will be a good-sized minority who just won’t do it.  And for them being a shunned minority may just be the best option available.  There are advantages to being separate.  Once you unplug from the dominant culture you can avoid the irritants that exist in the outside.  Once your children attend their own schools and churches you will be automatically selecting for the kind of friends and eventually mates they will have.  And outside communities tend to work together closely on political and community initiatives that impact them.

But most of all you will be avoiding the impact of the toxic narrative that woke culture aims at your children.  Telling young people that their parents and ancestors are evil is about the worst thing you can do to someone’s community.  And we’ve been putting up with this to a higher and higher degree for the last seventy-five years.  It is time to admit that trying to reform the whole culture is an impossibility.  The Elites have the reins of power and all the means of education and communication at their disposal against us.  All that’s left to us are our families and our minds.  We need to consciously define ourselves as separate and embrace our old culture and break away from the woke culture in every way we can.  And we’ll be all the better because of it.
