Benson: Who Really Founded Public Education?

The Unitarians prided themselves on their socialism decades ago. They still do. Rev. R. J. Rushdoony, author of The Messianic Character of American Education took note of the many socialist projects supported by Unitarians, and state-controlled education had to be at the top of the list.

Back in 1847 Karl Marx was hired by a group called the League of the Just (Illuminati) to write a little book called The Communist Manifesto that was to be used in the Socialist revolts in Europe in 1848. Marx’s diatribe was one of the most boring things I’ve ever read. Marx would never have qualified for the “Humorist of the year award.” Yet, as leaden as the Manifesto is, it is important to be aware of the Illuminati’s plans for first European, and eventually, world conquest.

Marx listed ten points that revolutionary cadres should use in taking over a country, any country, in which to display the glories of “scientific socialism.” The tenth point on the Illuminati’s wish list was “Free education for all children in public schools…” As horrendous as this point was, it seems the Unitarians had beaten them to it by at least a decade and a half. So the question then arises–in this instance did the Illuminati learn from the Unitarians–or had some among the Unitarians learned earlier from the Illuminati?

Duly observed by Rushdoony was the fact that: “The concept of ‘democratic’ or statist education has waged war, not only against the Christian faith, but against the family as well.” By 1860 California had already made it a misdemeanor for parents, or anyone else, to criticize a teacher in the presence of a student. So much for your First Amendment “rights.”

So our problems with the public school system are hardly new–in fact they are much older and of greater duration than most have even dreamed about. Most people labor under the delusion that public schools were “just great when I attended them” and they fail to realize, or have been mis-educated not to realize how bad they were even back during the supposed “good old days.”

Rushdoony has hit the nail squarely on the head and succinctly stated what most Christian parents do not want to hear–that the public schools their children attend have been guided by an anti-Christian worldview since their inception–whether by Illuminist or Unitarian thinking, or both. Grasping this bit of information means that you have to do something regarding how your children are educated. You can’t just “trust” the public school “experts” to lead your children the right way. Remember, some of these “experts” have given us “trans-closets” for our children to change in while at school so they will feel more sexually at home by dressing like the opposite sex. Their whole worldview militates against what Christians believe and if you think they will put their worldview aside and try to teach your kids objectively then you have a lot to learn about life in the real world.

The purpose of the public school is tto neutralize the Christian faith and to do away with it if and where possible. Your children are the guinea pigs they have and are still using to do this. Whether the Illuminists learned this from the Unitarians or vice versa is an interesting question and maybe one that should be explored. But for Christian purposes the fact remains that this system of education is anti-Christ and as such, Christian children do not belong in it.

One good thing with all this planned pandemic stuff is that lots of families have seen what is being taught in public schools and they don’t like it.

If you don’t like it, then get your kids out of it.

There are plenty of other options available for those willing to look.
