Taking Back America By Taking Back Our Schools
We all know today’s college students have their heads filled with radical, liberal indoctrination at U.S. universities. American higher education is a socialist bastion where college professors act like gods in their classrooms and often tolerate no dissent.
One would expect that brainwashing to have its effect on those with pliable minds. Such is the case, considering the results of a recent study. The Libertarian Republic reports:
A research group conducted an international study among college students, asking them to rank 40 historical figures positively or negatively.
The study is called “‘Heroes’ and ‘Villains’ of World History Across Cultures.” In the final ranking, former US President George W. Bush was ranked as the 4th most evil, more villainous than Vladimir Lenin, Joseph Stalin, and Mao Zedong.
This is sad, but predictable given the left-wing tripe college students are fed today in what masquerades for history and political science on colleges campuses.
The Libertarian Republic gives us the whole list:
The top of the list, ranked as most heroic were unsurprising. Such heroes included Albert Einstein, Mother Theresa, Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King Jr., and Isaac Newton.
Now, as repugnant as placing George W. Bush beneath Lenin, Stalin and Mao is, several other rankings leave one speechless as well. For example: Princess Diana and Mohammed are both ranked higher than George Washington. Also, Karl Marx is ranked higher than JFK, Winston Churchill, and Margaret Thatcher.
Remember this is a “heroes to villains” ranking.
The result clearly shows the ignorance of history among today’s college students as The Libertarian Republic explains:
Now, however one may feel about Bush Jr., the claim that he was more evil than Stalin or Mao seems a bit of a stretch.
On average, sources say anywhere between 30-55 million deaths were directly linked to the policies of Stalin during his time as leader in the Soviet Union. His biggest offensives include Gulag camps, the Great Terror initiative, and his agreement to a non-aggression pact with the nazis.
One step more heroic than Stalin, according to the study, is Mao, former leader of the People’s Republic of. Mao, undisputedly, is responsible for more civilian deaths than any political leader in history.
Studies link 50-80 million deaths to Mao’s time as dictator. Mao’s cult of personality included social programs like the Great Leap Forward and the Cultural Revolution, which resulted in famine, social unrest, mass civilian murder, and all the other rainbows and unicorns that come along with a communist regime.
Time won’t permit a more thorough critique of this survey’s results, but the words “ignorance” and “liberal indoctrination” come screaming from its pages.
No wonder this nation is in the mess we are. If our education system is failing our college students this badly, then what hope do we have for the future?
As George Santayana once said, “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”
