There are a lot of theories about what can be done to “save America.” If you’re on the political left, you might say that we need to have the government completely take over the economy and society and run Christians out of public life in order to save America. If you’re conservative, then you probably believe just the opposite.
But conservative commentator Dennis Prager has a different solution, a solution that involves more people but also takes less (in fact, no) government intervention to do. Prager writes,
The most frequent question people pose to me is: What can I/we do to fight back against the nihilistic anti-American destruction of virtually all the country’s major institutions?
There is an answer.
The single best thing Americans can do to counter the left-wing attack on America—against its freedoms, its schools, its families, its children, its governmental institutions, its sports, its news and entertainment media, its medical establishment, the CIA, the FBI, the State Department, and the military—is to take their children out of America’s schools.
Other than in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math), the vast majority of America’s elementary schools, high schools, colleges, and universities teach your child or grandchild almost nothing important; prematurely sexualize them, thereby robbing them of their innocence; and harm them intellectually and morally. They rarely teach them, for example, art or music because they are too busy teaching them race-centered hatred of whites, of America, and of America’s values.
Sending your children to most American schools is playing Russian roulette with their values—but unlike the gun in Russian roulette, which has a bullet in only one of its six chambers, the schools’ guns hold four or five bullets.
In many elementary schools, your child is taught that gender is chosen and that there is no difference between boys and girls (in a growing number of schools, the teachers are told not to call their students “boys and girls”); they are taught about masturbation; and many children from first grade on attend “Drag Queen Story Hour,” wherein an obvious man wearing women’s clothing, garish makeup, and a wig entertains them.
Given that all this is well-known, why do any non-left—meaning, liberal or conservative—parents send their children to American schools?
One reason is they are in denial. Many parents don’t want to know what their children are being taught and the consequent damage done to them. They don’t really believe schools will ruin their children, let alone their children’s relationship with them.
Sadly, Prager is right. Many conservative parents have no idea how bad the ideology in many public schools is now. It’s downright horrible.
But, as parents, we still have the ability to take our kids out of that horrible environment and to make sure that they get a real education, an education about how to gather information and think for themselves instead of indoctrination into ridiculous ideologies.
