Americans are accustomed to sitting in front of "the box" and watching sitcoms or their favorite team vanquish its opponent. Recently it seems to this reader that they have added another sport to their list for viewing: POLITICS. They sit watching the nightly news and CNN's drumbeat to go to war, and they munch away on their high carb addictions and consume their favorite beverage as the agenda for the take over of their country passes by on the screen, clearly spelling out a "real agenda" which carries with it a totalitarian system of government being implemented in their back yard.

How much longer will Americans consider POLITICS a spectator sport? How much longer will they play the part of spectator to the following agenda being played out in their back yards?

1. Religion of Secular Humanism (atheism) in schools. Man is an animal to be trained to do what the state requires. Dialectical materialism a la Marx/Lenin (Foster/Hiss/Chisholm). No right/no wrong.

2. Merger of government and industry (communism, socialism, fascism); 1934. Carnegie Corp. recommendation to "use schools to change United States from free, individualist economy to socialist, collectivist economy in New Order." 1945. US joins UN, Hiss, Chisholm. General Chisholm recommends using schools to get rid of the (children's) conscience. 1953. Norman Dodd, Congressional investigation of tax-exempt foundations. Told by Pres. Ford Foundation, Gaither, foundations carrying out White House directive to use money to merge USA with Soviet Union. 1965 ESEA, federal control, change from academics to behavior modification (performance-based training) necessary for Carnegie/UN school -to- work (STW) agenda. Initiation of international curriculum. 1985. President Reagan-Gorbachev (US-Soviet) and Carnegie-Soviet Education Agreements which merged two nations school systems. 1980s and 1990s. Implementation of outcome based education (old failed mastery learning). Carnegie Soviet polytech Plan, School/business partnerships. Teenagers are spending 2-3 days a week at work sites instead of in classroom, as in Cuba, China, etc. (Lynn Cheney, VP's wife, testified before Congress against this system. Has her voice been muffled?))

3. COPS (Community Oriented Policing System). Police involved in community/schools, etc., in training citizens to spy on neighbors; use of TQM (Total Quality Management) to control our towns and cities (via block captains). Citizens in Bath and Brunswick, Maine area are being given medals (Pavlovian/Skinnerian rewards) through COPS for doing what police want done in the community! Data collection will include those who get rewards and those who don't get rewards. This program was initially implemented through the  failed Drug Abuse Resistance Education (DARE) program which put police into schools with a program developed by the Justice Dept.

4. President Bush's Faith-Based Initiative (by Executive Order!) which will result in government control of churches and social services through money. This initiative now includes money for housing coming out of Housing and Urban Development. Bush's Faith-Based Initiative, school choice, COPS program, and community service will result in government control of Americans at the local level (churches, schools, towns, policing, etc.). The Soviet Union funded the Russian Orthodox Church in the same way which became the strong arm of the KGB.

5. Trojan Horse: School Choice/Vouchers, etc., which is also part of the international agenda - government control of all education through money. Federal legislation underlying and controlling any subsequent education legislation was adopted on July 18, 1971. "The Interagency Day Care Standards: Any agency, public or private, which receives federal funds directly or indirectly through a grant or contract...or by way of a voucher plan must meet all program requirements that are set down for public schools. Acceptance of Federal funds is an agreement to abide by the requirements." Federally funded Charter Schools include Virtual Academies, i.e. magnate schools (William Bennett). All these new and alternative forms of schooling are necessary to implement training in various jobs/professions (Soviet quota system). The traditional hierarchical school system, presently being deliberately crashed through choice proposals, are not suitable for work force training. They had to be abolished in order to implement the global planned economy with quotas for specific jobs.

6. Pavlovian/Skinnerian method. The Bush/Kennedy "No Child Left Behind Reading Initiative", mandates use of scientific research based instruction: Direct Instruction (D.I.) based on animal training, rewards, etc. According to Prof. Robert Glaser, leading behaviorist involved in Bush's reading initiative, D.I. "is not rote learning". "With rote learning one is allowed to make a mistake." With D.I. students are not allowed to make a mistake. That is why behaviorist educationists refer to this method as "what works". Giving your dog a biscuit when he sits also works. He will always sit if he knows he is going to get a biscuit. Is your child an animal? D.I. is necessary for STW (school-to-work) training, not education. Education is NOT a science.

7. Character/Civic Education (no right/no wrong) government training in government-approved values. This is also a part of the international curriculum. Mandated community service (forced slavery), with part of the emphasis on character, the same character education as mandated by Hitler, Stalin, etc.

8. Voluntary/mandatory Community Service. Citizens must serve the collective, the group, the state. (See above COPS reward system for "good" citizens)

9. International education system, which called for the US Department of Education, recommended by William Foster in Toward a Soviet America.

Bush/Kennedy's "No Child Left Behind" legislation (NCLB) mandates National Testing, which is 60% politically correct and politically correct national curriculum. Traditional teachers who don't get "results" (teach to test... accountability to international standards...limited learning for lifelong labor) will be fired. The UN Lifelong Learning plan carved in stone at "Education for All Conference" in Jontien, Thailand, in 1990." "Education for All" equals Goals 2000, STW, and Bush/Kennedy NCLB legislation. National Alliance of Business refers to this agenda as K-80. Really Pre-K-80 due to Early Childhood Education. Hillary Clinton's Health Care legislation, including mental health (school based clinics) going in the K-12 back door. Government is implementing the old Community Education agenda, in the works since the 1940's, which calls for UN's lifelong education plan under the umbrella of school districts run by un-elected councils (soviets).

10. Regional Government (national and global un-elected government: use of councils). Nixon carved this nation into ten regions. Communist Daily World, 1975, Morris Zeitlin article says that the USA is not moving fast enough towards aregional government; that it works so well in the Soviet Union. Gorbachev in London on 3/23/00 said: "European Union is New European Soviet" Stalin, at 1936 Communist International said: "Dictatorship can be established only by a victory of socialism in different countries or groups of countries," after which there would be federal unions of the various groupings of these socialist countries, and the third stage would be an amalgamation of these regional federal unions into a world union of socialist nations. A new world organization, United Cities and Local Governments (UCLG), is to be launched in January 2004, with headquarters in Barcelona, Spain. Their mission is to be a united voice and world advocate of democratic local self-government. UCLG will be the 'interlocutor' between local government and the United Nations. President Bush is implementing the same New American Soviet in this hemisphere with the regionalization of Canada, USA and Latin America and NAFTA/GATT. This new system calls for the redistribution of wealth through a common currency. Lenin's international socialism is the name of the game being played out today.

11. Five Year Plans (Systems Management), PPBS, TQM, ISO 9000, based on Soviet Systems Planning, Leontieff and Laszlo .

12. Federal Income Tax (redistribution of wealth) and International Bank.

13. Land Use (Control of Land through regionalism/sustainable development, etc.)

14. Gun Controls (Control of Guns)

15. Free Trade (NAFTA, GATT, European Union, etc.)

16. International Bank (World Bank, etc.)

Reader: What label would you put on the above agenda?
