The book The Deliberate Dumbing Down of America is a must read for anyone who desires to fully understand how we came to the place we are now in terms of who is leading this country and the direction in which we are headed.
Here is a link to reviews of the book...some are very crystalizing:
Anyone who listens to Hannity interview common folk on the street (or Dave Letterman/Jay Leno/...anyone for that matter) can readily see/hear how effective the plan was/is/and will be.
A society that has no fear of God (no moral compass by which to navigate anything), rewards failure, punishes success, elevates twisted theologies in the name of science, murders its own infants by the millions, devalues families, glorifies abominations, and so-on......hardly stands a chance unless an radical change is made. Our educational system is just one more chink in the armor...a huge dent in fact.
