The title represents my intention: to comment on how a purpose of schools (that is, state-controled, state-compelled attendance at titularly secular rituals) is to control how much self-incriminating evidence can reach the minds of the attendees: like Ali Baba’s Forty Thieves meeting with their lawyer to block a videotape of the robbery being shown to a jury. The schools’ success will depend in large part on the will of the subjects to be deceived. Jews can say, “We didn’t murder Jesus: and who the hell was he anyway that we should care whether we murdered him or not?” Christians can say, “The Jews killed Jesus: they more than deserve any mischief done to them.” But can Christians say, “We didn’t keep slaves. Slavery is wrong. We were always against slavery.”
Can Christians say, “We didn’t murder Hypatia. We couldn’t have: we’re the good guys. And we didn’t destroy the library at Alexandria. Besides, who the hell was Hypatia? Never heard of her.” And “Why not destroy the library? It’s all pagan!”
Schools are miraculous. Send everyone to school, and in no time you’ll have them all saying that they’re the good guys, were always against slavery, never stole anything important from the natives, have always been right, about everything.
This miracle is best accomplished if the school is run by a state much of the same mind. Our compulsion is your freedom.
scribble, bibble: I promised this piece, butchered it, will return. I’ll try to say better what’s done and how it’s done.
