Very important KEY articles about egalitarianism

 

  • Soldiers in Revolt, by David Cortright, tells the story of how the U.S. government was forced to pull out of Vietnam because the military brass knew they could no longer rely on American GIs to fight a war they didn't support. This is the story of GIs in revolt that the rulers have tried to cover up.
  • Gar Alperovitz describes here in great detail how the wealth that people like Bill Gates claim to own was produced by society as a whole and should belong to all of society.
  • Nov. 5, 2012 Video: After Sandy, Occupy Movement Re-Emerges as Relief Hub for Residents in Need continued here. This video is about what OWS veterans did to organize mutual aid in hard-hit-by-Sandy Rockaway. It's an inspiring glimpse of what people can and will do when they have an opportunity to share according to need. In contrast, FEMA and the Red Cross are doing far less to help people in need; the Staten Island borough president is so disgusted with the Red Cross's failure to help that he's telling people not to donate to it!
  • The grand financial shift: Rich own assets while poor and working class deep in debt. 70 percent of wealth for the bottom 80 percent locked up in principal residence

THE TWO FUNDAMENTAL REASONS THAT ZIONISTS GIVE IN DEFENSE OF ISRAEL REMOVING MOST NON-JEWS FROM ISRAEL AND REFUSING TO LET THEM (THE PALESTINIAN REFUGEES) RETURN ARE: #1) THAT GOD GAVE THE LAND TO THE JEWS AND #2) THAT JEWS CANNOT LIVE SAFELY IN THE WORLD UNLESS THERE IS A JEWISH STATE WITH A LARGE MAJORITY JEWISH POPULATION ACHIEVED AND GUARANTEED BY WHATEVER IS NECESSARY, EVEN IF IT REQUIRES (AS IT DOES) VIOLENT ETHNIC CLEANSING OF NON-JEWS. TO SEE THAT #1 IS FALSE, GO HERE; TO SEE THAT #2 IS FALSE, GO HERE. ZIONIST LEADERS HAVE NOTHING BUT CONTEMPT FOR ORDINARY JEWS AND HAVE BETRAYED THEM HORRIBLY SINCE THE DAYS OF THE HOLOCAUST; TO SEE THIS GO HERE.

Video: Ordinary Jewish Israelis in an Israeli store objecting to a shop-owner's refusal to sell to a non-Jew, in a "hidden camera" experiment. (This video was made by people who argue, without any basis in fact, that Jewish Israelis are more tolerant than non-Jewish Arabs; but regardless of their motives, the video is quite interesting.)

  • Interview with Ilan Pappé: “The Zionist goal from the very beginning was to have as much as Palestine as possible with as few Palestinians in it as possible.
  • The Jews of Iraq, by Naeim Giladi ["I write this article
    for the same reason I wrote my book: to tell the American people, and especially American Jews, that Jews from Islamic lands did not emigrate willingly to Israel; that, to force them to leave, Jews killed Jews; and that, to buy time to confiscate ever more Arab lands, Jews on numerous occasions rejected genuine peace initiatives from their Arab neighbors. I write about what the first prime minister of Israel called 'cruel Zionism.' I write about it because I was part of it.
    "]
  • Video of Zionist ethnic cleansing going on today in Palestine, carried out by the Israel government that once claimed to have "made the dessert bloom" but now uproots trees Palestinians depend on for their livelihood.
  • "WEXNER ANALYSIS: ISRAELI COMMUNICATION PRIORITIES 2003" This is a professional consulting firm's recommendation to the Israeli government about how to do propaganda in the United States. The only sense in which it reflects the views of New Democracy is that we agree that the Israeli government uses lies and deception to fool people into supporting it's ethnic cleansing practices.
  • Antiwar Statement of Yair Khilou, imprisoned for refusal to serve in the Israeli Army. (From New Profile).

We CAN Change the World: The Real Meaning of Everyday Life by Dave Stratman

The People as Enemy: The Leaders' Hidden Agenda in World War II by John Spritzler

 

"School Reform and the Attack on Public Education" - the text of a speech by Dave Stratman delivered to the Massachusetts Association of School Superintendents Summer Institute in July, 1997. Still must reading for parents and teachers today!

 

 

 

Susan Ohanian on Education is a terrific website by an outstanding educator, that has up-to-date criticism of the "Education Reform" establishment.

Guy Brandenbug's Blog on education is also terrific.

The "Common Core" curriculum is one of the key elements of the ruling class's education reform in the United States, and it is aggressively promoted (and funded) by Bill Gates with his Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. This foundation has a blog called "Impatient Optimists" with an article that says:

"I am pleased to see the excitement in the business community for the common core.  Businesses are the primary consumers of the output of our schools, so it’s a natural alliance."

The ruling class (Bill Gates et al) view our children as things to be "consumed" by business, as products that are the "output" of schools the way widgets are the output of a factory, as means to an end--specifically the end of maximizing the profits of the "business community."

 

The "Common Core" standards promoted by Bill Gates and his agent in the government--Secretary of Education Arne Duncan--are designed to make our children believe that our capitalist society based on competition and buying and selling (for profit) with some rich because they are smarter and work harder and the rest poor because they are not so smart and don't work hard, is the natural order of things. It is designed to make our children unable even to conceive of a society based on sharing according to need (instead of buying and selling for profit) and mutual aid and equality with no rich and no poor. This accusation against the "Common Core" is proven by (among many other examples) the educational materials being developed for first graders in New York City. These materials are called ReadyGEN and are produced by the Pearson School company, which says: "ReadyGEN is being designed from the ground up to address the ELA Common Core Standards, the Publisher's Criteria and the City's specific requirements." Susan Ohanian discusses how awful ReadyGEN is in great detail here. Ohanian points out, for example, that ReadyGEN lists the following words as the vocabulary first graders need to learn in their first unit of study: goods, services, want, needs, collects, taxes, producers, farmers, consumers, earn, income, sells, saves, choices, cash register, inventory, groceries, average.
