    The question is, is it OK to lie?
    Where would a person learn to answer that question? K-12 compulsory education does not teach ethics, morality, integrity or a rich knowledge of history. The person who answered the question about lying by saying he’s not an attorney …… answered the question of about the quality of K-12 compulsory education perfectly, very low quality.
    Ethics, morality and integrity are not man made laws, therefore man can study them but not create them. Those are the kinds of subject manner that each generation learns, experiencing and passes a richer version to the next generation.

    Third world countries are lacking in ethics, morality, integrity and a rich knowledge of history and it shows.

    First problem… Can freedom of education be taught by a compulsory education system?
    Once education is compulsory the student’s rights are no longer natural rights (rights from a power greater than mankind), neither the student or the parents can decide the education of the student. Only the State can decide, therefore the student’s rights are legal rights decided by the politics of the people in power and those rights can be changed from moment to moment, with or without consideration of anyone other than the person in power.
    Therefore compulsory education cannot teach students how to live free. If the people of the United States, all born ignorant, aren’t taught how to live free, can the United States maintain its claim “Land of the Free”?

    “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. ”

    This is why we are a shining city on a hill to so much of the world.

    If we are going to destroy anti social behavior we must start with education. Its illogical for the United States’s current compulsory education system to teach freedom of education.

    Its illogical for State run compulsory education to defer to parents to determine the education of their children.

    Its illogical for State run compulsory education to defer to parents for the selection of teachers.

    Its illogical for State run compulsory education to teach ethics, morality, integrity and a rich knowledge of history. Non-trust worth individuals can not work together, cannot advance their society. Education in the United States has been on the decline for nearly 100 years… and continues to decline as we speak, according to test results and the economy.

    @JP4Joy.. another victim of a K-12 compulsory education.

    In traditional anthropological studies there are actually 5 races.
    These are
    1) Mongoloid (Asian and American Indian)
    2) Caucasoid (European)
    3) Australoid (Australian and oceanic)
    4) ******* (east African black)
    5) Capoid (south African black)

    @Slave… another victim of a K-12 compulsory education displays ignorance of history. President Jefferson is remember for these words “…from the shores of Tripoli…” for his efforts that ended up publishing the Koran with a warning message that the people who follow this book (Koran) should not be trusted because they will try to kill non muslims, will lie and not meet their commitments.

    Of course you also know that we have the Bible as the result Islam onslaught to kill christians. The fleeing christians brought the Hebrew and Greek documents to Europe where they were translated and compiled into a book which became a bible on how to live and govern.

    Another victim of a K-12 compulsory State run education system speaks out.

    Where did he learn ethics, morality, integrity and history? His parents. Never mentioned K-12 State run compulsory education.

    Where did you learn ethics, morality, integrity and a rich knowledge of history? None are taught in public schools.

    When some one in the shop says “I think” they are often asked if they are sure they are equipped to think?

    Is the Bible a boot about religion? If so what religion?

    If you say christianity, is christianity a religion or philosophy for living? If religion, what religion? We have Lutheran churches, Catholic churches etc… but no christian churches.

    We know christians by their life style and call people who practice that life style christians. Hoosiers are called Hoosiers because of their life style. Amish because of their life style. They all carried and study the Bible and got different messages, made different choices from their studies.

    When congress distributed the first Bible printed in English to schools, they did so for the study of ethics, morality, integrity and history. Who among us think a nation of high standards of ethics, morality, integrity and knowledge of history would be worse off than without?

    Barber: We have had integration for a long time. Integration, plus women in one state, voted for the Constitution.

    Compulsory education begin the downfall of the level of public education.

    Compulsory education in the south begin with the end of the Civil War. In reaction “to you must” the south begin a significant movement to private schools and cutting funding for public schools. State compulsory education laws, which the south was slow to pass, completely removed parents from determining the curriculum for the education system in their community.

    Today major cities are going bankrupt and rural communities extinct. Are decaying communities a sign of a high or low level of public education?

    Decaying levels of education motivated the Separatist/Pilgrims to leave England. What causes decay of education? Curriculum. Today’s school are not intended to provide the next generation of parents for any specific community, yet specific communities, the vast majority, are being adversely effected by blind education trying to pin the tail on needs of their respective community.

    Afflecks basic argument is the argument most recently presented in Egypt about the low percentage of people favoring the Muslim Brotherhood and they will never get into politics. Of course they did and they won… for awhile

    Mussolini, Lenin, Hitler, Mao same deal low percentage. Low percentage with a gun in a disarmed nation.

    ISIL is not cutting heads of for exercise, they are a low percentage demonstrating power. The large percentage without power is just a lot of people with a belief that is never being expressed. Like trying to tell the difference between someone that can read but never reads and someone who cannot read. What is the difference?

    Hard to teach freedom of education in a compulsory school.

    Where did you learn the history of the United States, in a compulsory K-12 public school?

    Read the Constitution. See anything about marriage? See anything about education? See anything about healthcare insurance? See anything about retirement plans? See anything about wage controls?

    Did you learn anything about freedom of education while you attended K-12 compulsory school?

    Which is it currency or money?

    Currency being something of value. Money being a promise of exchange for something of value, like a bond or a check. A Federal Reserve Note is neither, money or currency. A Federal Reserve Note is not exchangable for something of value therefore its not currency nor does it represent durable value as in value created by labor.

    If you and I counterfeited our currency we would be arrested because we are diluting the value of all currency. If the government counterfeits our currency its called stimulus aka economic lubrication.
