Re: “U.S. adults ‘dumber than average human'”

No, U.S. adults are not dumber than “average humans.” Those Americans who became adults after being brainwashed in our K-12 schools, colleges and universities since the 1950s have no knowledge of the true history of America unless they have put forth the individual effort to learn the truth of our history.

The early 1960s “transformation” of our educational system by liberal-progressive-socialist superintendents, administrators, teachers and professors has been brainwashing – they call it “indoctrinating” – successive generations of American youth to produce adults who accept socialism and ultimately communism.

Then these same un-American operatives did the same thing to our “press” or news media. Today our religion and very government has been assaulted by this evil anti-republican form of government. Now, these brainwashed adults support the ideology of Marxism because they are ignorant, not dumber. They are plenty smart and intelligent but have had their minds polluted by anti-freedom and independence rhetoric and propaganda all of their short lives.

Only the older generations, such as I, know the true history of America, its leaders and people. When we are gone, the United States will become a totalitarian communist nation modeled on the old Soviet Union’s Communist Party system.

This transformation didn’t start in 2008 with Barack Hussein Obama II, but some 63 years ago. The damage won’t be reversible in a year or two. It will take a long-time, concerted effort to re-educate these adults using period documentation to prove they have been misled or indoctrinated by forces of evil that would transform them into slaves of the state doing their wishes with no hope of salvation, freedom, independence or individualism.

Even today, we hear the term “social justice,” which is the opposite of individualism.

As a people and a nation we are on the cusp of total chaos! We are on the verge of squandering what our ancestors and Founding Fathers gave us by sacrificing their fortunes, property, families and themselves.

Patrick Henry said, “Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!” (March 23, 1775).

Thomas Paine said, “These are the times that try men’s souls.”

The question is: Will we Americans respond to the call of freedom?
