As a nation the U.S. is a land of mostly dim bulbs. Foreigners that I meet are always amazed that I know something about their country or region of the world. They tell me how few Americans they have met seem to know much of anything at all. Even the supposedly "uneducated" Mexicans, that I work with, know quite a lot about their culture and history. Every one of them can name all seven U.S. states stolen by the American military in 1848 and they also possess rich lively vocabularies. Their work ethic and determined purposeful toil is not only propelling their country along with the funds being sent home but is doing the same for ours as well. Imagine life today without illegal Mexicans. I dare you. They don't call it the "Re-occupation" for nothing. But I digress....
The slow insidious takeover of every local school system in the country by the federal gov-mint has finally succeeded in what it set out to do: raise a nation of dependent sucklings that are cluelessly in need of Big Brother to soothe the bumps and pat their rumps then blow them up in wars. The culture of dependence and acquisitive entitlement is instilled from an early age. Actual education is sparse at best. The pierced idiot you see every day gabbling away on his cell phone is the product of such a system. Parents have surrendered their young to Moloch and he has trained them to be the obedient and ignorant serfs necessary for his ambitions of command and control. Never mind that this eventually rots away his power by debilitating the population's ability to engage in productive endeavors and thus sustain the tyranny. A good parasite never kills its host.
Anyway, this is not going to be a sad blog post of woe but instead the celebration of the dawning global era, on this continent, which will make the State run model of education as a prison obsolete. It is already obsolete, as is the liberal arts college degree, but it won't be long now before we can feel the real pain of its dire irrelevance. The rest of the world is about to take over, and that makes me very glad.
My new Apple computer was manufactured in China and the tech support woman, who was extremely helpful, was in Bangalore, India. The electronic revolution now puts workers around the globe in direct competition with one another. The flattening of the landscape for high tech and service work is now exposing America's severe educational vulnerability.
At the low end Mexicans are rapidly taking over the industrial and manual labor jobs, while at the higher end more educated foreign workers are taking the accounting, drafting, engineering, computer tech and customer service jobs. These new foreign workers are multi-lingual and way more highly educated coming out of their country's eighth-grade than most of our dumbed down college graduates could ever hope to be. Have any of you hung out on an American college campus lately? It ain't a pretty sight. "Like whaddya mean dude, like....huh?"
I just want to say BRING IT ON! I much prefer dealing with East Indians, Mexicans, Chinese, Euros and Apaches. The more contact I have with these people the better. They have not been tainted by the false and fraudulently corrupt tenants of the Ritalin dispensing American education system. They are still more informed by the world they inhabit and use the handed down traditions of their culture, which stress family and clan loyalty, informed judgment and the love of learning as a life process instead of a forced indoctrination.
We are about to be bit in the ass. HARD! GOOD FOR US!
May I help you?
