Hooray, my rants on reverse engineering school’s purpose, that is, deducing, inferring the unadvertised, often hidden reasons kleptocracies coerce schools on us, their hands in our pocket, their claws on our children, have now been posted here, bringing at least that much of the deposed Knatz.com up to date. There will be other thoughts to add. There are data bases on the subject on my old Mac to import. This will be the gathering bin, the subject’s scrapbook.

I didn’t disagree with this guy, I wouldn’t have argued for digital record keeping with a caveman, living in a group of forty. But this Jew wasn’t getting it. We’re hundreds of millions, controlling billions: and controlling them through state-run propaganda factories.

In Hitler’s Germany …

School’s Purpose

About pk

Seems to me that some modicum of honesty is requisite to intelligence. If we look in the mirror and see not kleptocrats but Christians, we’re still in the same old trouble.
