WATCH: Teaching Children About History – #SolutionsWatch

As concerned parents know all too well, the revolution of the mind is an intergenerational project. It is more important than ever that we take back the responsibility of educating our children about history and about the way the world really works.

There are many tools we can use to help us in that task, and today Connor Boyack introduces us to another one: a Tuttle Twins story-based American history textbook called America’s History: A Tuttle Twins Series of Stories.

Sources, shownotes and links – as well as audio versions and download options – can be found here. Previous episodes of #SolutionsWatch can be found here and here.

America’s actual independence ended in 1789. All valid Constitutional history ended February 1, 1865. And America’s financial independence never existed. Sorry. Them’s the facts…

History is about establishing facts. It is also about seeing pattern. If we do not see the past, we can have no insight into the future.

Real History

Real History is hard to discover and it is getting harder. Perhaps it is not important. As O’Brien asked Winston during the latter’s interrogation : Is there somewhere in the universe where the past is being relived ? The past lives on only in the human mind and nowhere else. History may as well be provided by the party which is infallible .Individual minds soon perish.

Bought the book (not available through Amazon). Pricey. But worth it (I think). I view it as political contribution. Also subscribed to the monthly magazine. For my grand kids. I was flabbergasted by some the negative comments. To that I say: What is wrong with you fuckers. The United States is the best thing that ever happened to the world. Get over it. No one is perfect. We will get better as soon as we get Biden at the anti American Democrats out of power. Deranged fools………… We cannot stop climate change. The world will not end in 12 years because we use fossil fuels. The United Nations is the foundation of modern day evil. Defund the United Nations and WHO.

Uh, pro-tip, John Locke is and was, will always be the ultimate in government propaganda. Yeah, he’s better than Hobbes, but he’s no Rousseau. That don’t mean none of them aren’t full-on, in your face State propaganda. Otherwise you’d never have heard of ’em, certainly not in your public schools. Only Thos. Paine can claim to be an authentic voice in Rationalism/Enlightenment. I can’t speak on Europeans as I received an American education. I suspect many French voices were authentic (Hugo and maybe Balzac) but then again maybe not.

I can help you out on this one.

If it’s in Russia, we can safely assume and report the possibility that the state and/or it’s security services carried out a murderous false flag to further a political agenda.

If it’s in the ‘West’, we can safely rule out silly conspiracies for tin-foil hat wearing morons and understand that our very way of life is under attack from various terrorist organisations. Naturally, laws must be enacted to keep us all safe.

Flip this around if you live in Russia.

‘Our very way of life’ is less than 4 generations old and bares little resemblance to our, alleged, religious arable farming communities that constituted a stable cohesive society, that we should wish to resurrect. The modern way of life is a way of death, emotionally and spiritually.

The level of mental suffering in this modern British way of life is truly off the charts, especially for gen X and younger generations (evidence from anti-psychotics and anti-depressants prescription levels and independent mental health charity statistics). Many people now live in a constant need of dissociation, provided with whatever consumable helps achieve that state, healthy relational bonds are almost impossible to weld in a society with such traumatic undertones. This ISN’T normal. Although its worthwhile preserving a peaceful societal environment, the real violence in modern Britain is going on in the younger generations heads and hearts. So, what way of life are you referring to being under attack exactly?

Here it is .

https://truthunmuted.org/putins-false-flag/

I was living in Moscow when the Russian Apartment Bombings were happening so I witnessed first hand how frightened people were. One of the first media outlets to publish the accusation that Putins government were behind this was The Moscow Times. It has was/ is published in English and was distributed free in expensive hotels plus other venues were Western tourists went. It has from the word go been an anti Putin publication.

It’s interesting to note that although this article from Iain is extensive in the accusations, he omits how chaotic Russia was at the time akin to the Wild West. Assassinations, car bombings in broad daylight were frequent, anarchy plus corruption was rampant and very wide spread, much more so than today, which again I experienced first hand.

Iain makes the accusation that Putin doesn’t give a fig about the Russian people. Well, again I witnessed first hand the third world conditions of ordinary people eg old women begging on every street corner because their pension was worthless because of Yeltsin his Western “ advisers “ plus the Russian oligarchs. In addition, I saw with my own eyes the absolute despair in ordinary people because of the total demoralisation after the collapse of the communist system.

Since Putin came to power after being anointed by Yeltsin and his Western masters, who thought he was a safe pair of hands in order for them to continue economically raping Russia with the intention of Balkanising it, Russia has been transformed from a country on the verge of being a failed state to one that refuses to kowtow to the City of London plus Wall Streets hegemony!

Moreover, at the time of his arrest Khodorkovsky was in the process of negotiating via his Carlyle friend George H.W. Bush, father of the then-President George W. Bush, the sale of 40% of Yukos to either Condi Rice’s former company, Chevron or ExxonMobil in a move that would have dealt a crippling blow to the one asset left Russia and Putin to use for the rebuilding of the wrecked Russian economy: oil and export via state-owned pipelines to the West for dollars. During the ensuing Russian state prosecution of Yukos, it came to light that Khodorkovsky had also secretly made a contract with London’s Lord Rothschild not merely to support Russian culture via the Open Russia Foundation of Khodorkovsky. In the event of his possible arrest (Khodorkovsky evidently knew he was playing a high-risk game trying to create a coup against Putin) the 40% share of his Yukos stocks would pass into the hands of Lord Rothschild.

The crocodile tears of Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama for the violations of Khodorkovsky’s human rights hide a far deeper agenda that is not being admitted. Washington used the Russian to try to reach its goal of totally destroying the only power left on the earth with sufficient military strike power to challenge the Pentagon’s Full Spectrum Dominance strategy—control of the entire planet. When seen in that light the sweet loaded words “human rights” take on a quite different meaning.

Australia’s true history has been well hidden. This 11 minute video by Dawn Kelly shows how this country has been occupied by a foreign power since 1910 – and much more. Never mentioned in schools or on any mainstream media.

Maybe we should all agree on what is meant by a ‘child’. Children’s ability to work with abstraction and nuance doesn’t really develop until the teen years and it doesn’t happen overnight. The history I’d teach to a young child is very different from that a high school student would work with. Education, after all, isn’t about cramming in facts, its getting kids from paper cut out turkeys and Pilgrims on the classroom walls to a critical understanding of how the Pilgrims came to be in Massachusetts and what impact it had on the local population and the subsequent history of the area. A to B in ten years, from counting to calculus.

Of course, there are many who feel we’d be better off with “Just The Facts”. We don’t need educated people, we need a disciplined workforce, able to produce the most consistently, day in, day out. We need to constrain thinking, to keep people in a state of educational and emotional immaturity so they’re easily led and managed.

The education of the child is something not to be undertaken lightly – as it is today.
Children are currently guinea-pigs for the latest ‘theory’ spewed from the computer of a newly-graduated doctoral student in business studies and economics – the student being quad vaxxed and wearing a mask, of course…

A child is no longer given credit for being a child, and, as you wisely point out, children go through stages of personal development, irrespective of the environment they are in.
How to educate them depends upon the stage they have reached – usually in 7-year increments. That’s why the old education system of 4-11 and 11-18 makes sense, although 4 is very young for us to allow the establishment to begin to sink its claws into our offspring…

All of which pales into insignificance in the light of the latest ‘wisdom’ which appears to imagine that getting practically new-born babies into play-school as soon as possible is actually going to benefit somebody…

Not taking these crucial factors into account is like a kind of mental murder, but it’s all the rage today… Your last sentence says it all.

Depends what you are defining as “the establishment”. If they sink claws probably best not to allow them at any age. Establish is from Latin stabilīre, derivative of stabilis stable so you have set up a catch 22 in your language.

Expecting children born in December to perform at the same level as those born in January – almost a 1-year difference. Asking children who lack the muscle strength or dexterity to practise writing. Drugging those who are restless. Early tyranny for profit.

Jesus was not a Teacher. The claim that Jesus was a Teacher is just Church propaganda… If Jesus said he knew what’s best for us it would make him no different from all the little dictators who claim they know what’s best for us…
If God speaks to you, you’re lucky. If God gives you messages for humanity, you’re delusional – God doesnt work that way…

There is no Christ, was never any Christ. It’s astrological allegory. The bible is just coded Gematria. It’s not literal. The Jesuits (and before them, the J e w s) wrote the coded nonsense in the BIBLES (there’s more than one) as a control tool, and a fear and reprisal mechanism. None of it’s real.

The cryptocracy (cabal – Kabal – Kabbalah) have been shaping people’s minds through hoaxes and coded language for thousands of years. Not just this century.

It’s just another fraud. Anyone who hasn’t realized this yet, is a fool. The intent of religion is to diminish the power, independence and autonomy of all men, and make them supplicant to an imaginary, omniscient power, thus making man more easily controlled through the hierarchy mechanisms like monarchies, churches or governments.

Religion was invented to control the minds of men through fear, fraud and the subconscious mind pathway, just like education, media and government do today.

All the churches and religions worked together to psyop the populations, in the same way governments do now.

I don’t know why people can’t see the obvious pattern, plus the connection to all the FRAUD. The churches are all DIRECTLY connected to monarchies and governments, why do you think they have special tax status? The prosthelitizing is mostly a political tool and directly connected to the intel community.

The churches and organized religions are all connected to atrocities, to child abuse, to blood rituals of the past, child sacrifice and paganism.

There is as far as I can tell no evidence that Jesus existed. There is only a mention of the Christian cult beginning to form about a century after he allegedly lived. Pliny the younger apparently made a mention of the cult in the second century. It is likely that Philo Judaeus of Alexandria commissioned the writing of the gospels in the first century and created the legend. Saint Paul also did his bit. Christianity was an ambitious 1000 year project to spread the root religion to large parts of the world.

So if it comes down to an either-or, between a real Jesus or a conspiracy to establish a religion around some made up person which was calculated to last 1000 years and spread everywhere – atheist that I am, I’ll go for the least outrageous.

Most of what we have been told and what people think they know, is a concoction of lies and propaganda, poison and endless retarded drivel spewed out by the state controlled media for 100 years and more.

Bayonetted Belgian Babies, Raped Belgian Nuns, Crucified Canadian Prisoners, Human Bodies Turned Into Soap, JFK, RFK, MLK, USS Liberty, Gulf Of Tonkin, Iraq Incubator Babies, 9/11, Iraqi WMD, Iranian WMD, Libyan African Rape Gangs, MI5 Syrian Gas Hoaxes, Russiagate, Skripal, Covid, Russian Atrocities in Ukraine, to mention just a very, very few examples. A consistent pattern of lying over generations.

Nothing can be taken at face value any more. If the state controlled BBC said it was snowing at the North Pole, without physically going there and checking, you have to assume that is probably just another lie. How much, if any, of the accepted historical record is actually true? Why should we believe anything we have been told, are being told, or will be told in the future? Why should we believe in things like the holocaust? Why wouldn’t they lie to us about that? Haven’t they lied to us endlessly about literally everything else?

Any representative of officialdom putting out any narrative whatsoever needs to be asked, when did you stop lying to us? Is there any such thing as truth any more? Are there any such things as facts, or just opinions masquerading as certainties, a matter of personal taste and preference, whatever we happen to find palatable or convenient at any given moment? If they want to wage a war on truth, why shouldn’t we play them at their own game? Aren’t we entitled to invent whatever lies and hoaxes about them that take our fancy, the more scurrilous and fantastical the better, and direct it back at them? Repay them in their own coin.
