ARE WE AWAKE? PART II of III

When I was about fourteen, I was given a photo of my maternal grandfather who had died long before I was born. I picked up the photo and stared into my own eyes, like looking into a mirror. Strange energy tingled through me. I still recall that connection. What I learned changed the way I got to know people. As a teacher, I saw my…

CHALLENGING A FAILED POLITICAL AND ECONOMIC SYSTEM PART I of III blogs

We are experiencing the exact opposite of what I was taught, what I taught students, and what I believe.

The powerful education reform movement is well underway. Taxpayers must be pleased with the progress so far. Legislators have turned the distribution of public tax dollars collected for public schools over to irresponsible hedge fund billionaires, profit-driven companies like Pearson PLC, foundations run by proven ‘winners’ like Eli Broad, Billy Gates, and the Waltons, and compromised public servants placed in the USDOE and the Departments…

Finally, The Corporate Press Is Exposing Duncan and Gates

A cultural lag. For many years education leaders have been pointing out the flaws in this top-down, mean-spirited, child and teacher damaging, ideological, and harmful nonsense laid on our schools. The USDOE has given access to the top levels of our education leadership and policy making to people who have never been vetted or elected, have no experience, no certification, nothing but massive amounts of…

Two Systems Collide. Representative Democracy Ends

Nov 17th, 2013 Corpocracy, Education, The would-be-kings take America, Uncategorized EdwardBerger 4 min read

A majority of those who hold the power and wealth of our nation run their coercive top-down empires as personal wealth and power generators. They see themselves as decision makers who should shape the world (i.e., similar to the ‘rule of the few’ model used in China). They believe in their system of unquestioned force-based rule. They believe that that the American Constitutional system of…
