Y'know, I've been horrified by the way my discipline has been taught in public schools for the past several decades.
I have just had it brought to my attention that history has had it worse. I had a student argue that the national security agencies need more authority to better protect us from internal terrorists and saboteurs in time of war, and that were it not for such agencies, Pearl Harbor and the September 11 attacks would have had far higher casualty rates.
OH MY FUCKING GOD!!! This kid had NO IDEA that the LAST TIME we were protected from internal terrorists and saboteurs was during WWII, when FDR rounded up the Japanese and put them in concentration camps.
Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you the proud product of public education: the active idiot.
Please. Drop out. And go die in a ditch, somewhere. I wouldn't trust you with an idiot stick, and you'd probably be demanding $15/hr to mop floors even if I did.
