Public schools aren’t so great, but they are only part of the main cause of this ignorance. The main cause of our youth ignorance is:
1. illegal and legal immigration – Without a defining culture, we are doomed to “fresh off the boat” ignorance of 3rd world country immigrants. I have found that many immigrants (of less then 5 years residency) do not share many of the assumed “American values”. This makes it hard for information to pass on as well as lowing our standard test scores and overall collective intelligence.
2. Media – Our entire media (TV, movies, music, news, internet) has a majority control over what the public is knowledgeable of and it has been proven to show only part of the political spectrum.

This is like that book/movie the pelican brief, except it isn’t based on some early washed out, over emotional 90′s environmental conspiracy for money, but rather, something much worse.

Oh Nancy, Nancy, Nancy. Let’s both pretend to be Catholics together while we do exactly opposite what it teaches. We will both enjoy hell together.

There’s nothing wrong with abortion. It’s only killed a little less then 100 million souls since R/W passed. Humans aren’t as important as the Earth and we need to limit population, you know, cause it, and government, is the real god. I propose legislation that legalizes killing all children and let’s return earth to her natural state.*
