Today’s show title was inspired (pun intended) by the juxtaposition of two stories about the future of education in the United States. One story is about a new startup that aims to inspire grade school children to love and learn about science. The other is about a White House official who, after considering the system of educational indoctrination in China, concluded that, even in the United States, “high schools probably have a significant ability to move students toward what they consider ‘a correct worldview, a correct view on life, and a correct value system.'”
But, as we’ll see, the theme can be carried beyond the realm of education, to Obama’s use of his “pen and a phone,” to his characterization of Obamacare, to Islam and other totalitarian religions, and more. This dichotomy might even help explain the success of non-liberal talk radio!
See Program Notes, below, for all the stories, etc., we plan to discuss in today’s show.
