Here’s the deal: we don’t want poor children to go to school. We have to shut down public education. We can’t continue to allow people to learn about workers’ rights, or what a Union is, or any other History that demonstrates true Liberty and Justice for all. If we can keep people poor and ignorant, when they are old enough to work they’ll accept any job at a low wage. If we can keep them poor and ignorant, we can eliminate laws that protect children from hard labor. We can bring our manufacturing centers back to the states and pay workers a pittance like we do in China and India. We need that caste system. We need the poor to be permanently poor so that we may keep our wealth and power. We can use our wealth to create exclusive private schools for our children to continue to learn how to run an Oligarchy. In a few generations, we should have a system so well-oiled that no average worker would be able to penetrate our power.We can reclaim the current public school buildings as workhouses, and bring back the seamstress sweatshops. In Kansas, we’ll be able to reject immigrant farm workers, because we can move the poor from the urban areas to farms and ranches. We can build bunk houses alongside livestock pens, and the workers will think they’re getting free food and shelter for taking the job.
In fact, now that the people are conditioned to believe in One Nation “under God” (added to the Pledge of Allegiance in 1954 by Congress) let’s start working on getting that justice phrase out of the Pledge;
I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands,
One Nation under God, Indivisible with Liberty and Justice for all.
The above statements seem the only logical conclusion to the Kansas Republicans’ Legislative actions in recent years.
If you do not object to the path of the GOP, then by all means, stay silent.
Update: just today Kansas Republicans hope to prosecute teachers based on what Christians consider “harmful material”
