When two-thirds of Americans under the age of 30 can’t say definitively that capitalism is a better economic system than socialism, then that’s a big effing deal—to quote Vice President Joe Biden. And yet. Schools continue to purge American history from the curriculum and replace it with bizarre and politically correct courses that confuse young minds even further than they already are.
And that’s the goal, folks: Brainwash, brainwash, brainwash.
To wit, as Marybeth Hicks points out in her fantastic new book, Don’t Let the Kids Drink the Kool-Aid, today’s young people aren’t able to differentiate between America as a republic and her as a so-called democracy. And to make matters worse, teachers prattle on and on about how the “United States is kind of the villain of world history,” says Marybeth, that “we are the overtakers, we are too big for our britches,” and other such leftist fairy tales.
(Watch Part 2 of our interview with Marybeth Hicks.)
As Marybeth points out, if this sloppy thinking and historical illiteracy continues, today’s generation will not only have its prosperity crushed under a mountain of debt, but its members will become increasingly reliant on the federal government to take care of their every need … for life.
Statism is cool, bro. Now pass the joint.
“Ben Franklin said that the government created for us was meant for a virtuous people, and no other,” continued Marybeth. “If we aren’t that kind of people that they were, we won’t be able to maintain the government that they created for us.”
Marybeth still maintains hope for the future. Watch the video to see why.
