Insane ChildrenDr. C. M. Pierce, Harvard University, speaking to 1,000 teachers during a 1973 Childhood Education International Association seminar said, "Every child in America entering school at the age of five is insane, because he comes to school with certain allegiances toward our elected officials, toward his parents, toward a belief in a supernatural being, toward the sovereignty of this nation as a separate entity . . . It's up to you as teachers to make all of these sick children well by creating the international children of the future." [See Sword of the Lord, May 11, 2012, pg. 22].
First of all, who is Dr. C. M. Pierce that he thinks he is in a position to be the judge as to who is insane? From what source does he project such an insane postulation? Any issue must be checked back to its source, so let us look quickly at the source of the information that parents give to their children.
The parents of our country most usually get their understanding of a sovereign God (supernatural being) from the trusted book, the Bible; and as a second source, the founding documents of our own country, the United States, which is the most blessed country on this earth.
So, Dr. Pierce's source certainly is not the same source that is used for the ethical, beneficial, and patriotic documents from which these "insane" children learned their allegiances.
Who is Dr. Pierce, besides a liberally education Harvard grad, to instruct the public school teachers to un-teach rather than to teach? As a result, we can infer from the statement he has made (quoted above) that the source for his allegiances comes from such places as Mein Kampf, by Adolf Hitler or perhaps Friedrich Hegel, who influenced Karl Marx. These are obvious sources.
The word insane originally meant "healthy." Today the word refers to defective function of mental processes such as reasoning. I would dare to guess that some of these children who have been influenced by their parents have better mental processes and reasoning than some of our arrogant educators.
My children went to school with these insane notions, and I am now working on my grandchildren to give them the same insane notions. I hope the teachers are ready for these insane students; because, if they are not fully prepared, the teachers may become insane themselves. More power to the parents. Let the schools teach "Reading, Riting, and Rithmatic." We parents can handle the insane part.
