We need to stop complaining about children being "indoctrinated" in schools. All education is indoctrination because it is all inevitably grounded in a worldview and a value system. The problem in schools is that so often the worldview is wrong and the value system perverse.
So the problem isn't simply that kids are indoctrinated, but that they are indoctrinated into the wrong way of thinking and looking at the world.
The question isn't WHETHER a child should be indoctrinated -- we all agree they should be, even if we claim otherwise -- but BY WHOM and INTO WHAT. Let's just not pretend that we favor some sort of mythical "objective" education with no worldview or value system attached.
By the way, a similar point could be made about the news media. Conservatives often wax nostalgic about the days of yore when news was "unbiased" but those days never existed. News will always be partisan. Always. Because it is delivered by human beings. No way around it.

(Thread) The pro-mask, pro-lockdown people have never engaged honestly with the other side. Never. Six months into this thing and they still won’t even acknowledge the counter arguments, much less offer a rebuttal to them. I’ve never seen so much bad faith posturing in my life.
The fact is that there are many illnesses — the flu, for example, but not just the flu — that are also transmissible and potentially deadly yet we have never done anything in response to them. No masks. No closings. Nothing.
And this is the part where the Bad Faith squad starts with the exasperated huffs and eye-rolls and says “COVID is worse than those other diseases, idiot,” and then moves on as if they’ve settled the matter. But they missed the point by a mile on purpose.

Althea Bernstein said she was set on fire by four white guys in the middle of the street in Madison. The story was clearly bogus but the media and BLM amplified it. After local and federal investigations it’s finally been confirmed that there is zero evidence to support her claim
They have security camera footage showing her entire drive on the night when she said the flame throwing white supremacists attacked her at a stoplight. No attack. No white supremacists.
But of course the media outlets that ran with her claim will not retract or even acknowledge the new development. BLM will not apologize for pushing the false story. And the police will not charge Bernstein with a crime.

BLM Narrative vs Reality: A Thread

Narrative: Breonna Taylor was murdered in her sleep when cops bust in the door without knocking.

Reality: Nope. She was awake, the cops did knock and announce themselves, and her boyfriend shot first.
Narrative: Jacob Blake was unarmed and shot by cops while trying to get into his car after stopping to break up a fight

Reality: Nope. Blake was harassing his alleged rape victim, was armed with a knife, and was reaching into his ex girlfriend’s car which he was trying to steal
Narrative: Deon Kay was an unarmed child shot in the back by cops

Reality: Nope. He was a legal adult, a known gang member, and shot in the chest while running towards officers with his gun drawn

No matter how you feel about abortion, if you’re intelligent and honest you should agree that Roe was a flagrantly terrible decision. It located a “right to abortion,” which is not in the Constitution, within the “right to privacy,” which is also not in the Constitution.
Even if the Constitution did mention the right to privacy, no objective reading of “right to privacy” could include abortion. The whole objection to abortion is how it affects the other person, the unborn child.
To call abortion a “private” decision is to assume that the other person doesn’t count or doesn’t exist, which begs the question. You have to prove that first. Then you can talk about privacy. These are questions that the Constitution doesn’t address and doesn’t intend to address

The Conservative Case For Waiting Until After The Election To Fill The SCOTUS Seat

In the age of Trump, many conservatives have forfeited principles. I have not. In fact I have even more principles than before. I have a principle surplus. That is how principled I am.
One of those principles is that Republican senators should not vote on new SCOTUS nominees within 50 days of an election. Within 51 or more days they can. This is how the Founders intended it, though they forgot to say so.
Also, putting another conservative on the court would be, frankly, rude. Many Democrats do not want a conservative on the court. Would a principled man do something that Democrats don’t want him to do? I think not. Men of principle always act with the consent of CNN.

To be clear, our anniversary is over a month away. It’s just that hypothetically I may have allegedly scheduled something for that same night. But that doesn’t count as forgetting it anyway because it hasn’t happened yet right?
I scheduled it because I forgot. But at the same time it doesn’t count as forgetting because the forgotten thing hasn’t occurred. That’s my point. It’s very technical.
She can’t say “my husband forgot our anniversary,” because that implies that it already happened. Instead she has to say “my husband is forgetting,” but then everyone is guilty of momentarily forgetting future events if they aren’t thinking about them every second.
