Propaganda School Saturday

I was one of a number of community residents who reviewed the textbook, Ethics, Economy and Entrepreneurship (EE&E), proposed for use in Tucson Unified School District high schools.

To me, the first clue that this textbook lacked academic integrity was when the authors, three philosophy and marketing professors, began their section on trade 40,000 years ago with the claim that the Neanderthals became extinct because they “weren’t entrepreneurs.” Further nonsense included the idea that Jamestown failed because the settlers didn’t have private property rights, that American bison almost became extinct because Native Americans drove them off cliffs, and that towns were founded before agriculture.

Once they get to economics, the authors avoid any major event that challenges their belief that unregulated, “free-market” capitalism is the best of all possible economic systems. Shockingly, they completely ignore two of the most significant economic events: the market crashes of 1929 and 2008.

    I dumped my cache and cookies, typed one comment about Feinstein reminding me of Trump, had to fill in my email and name still but that post turned up. Let’s see if this one does.

    Nope, second post didn’t show up. Dumping my cache and cookies didn’t cure a thing here.

    Where have I been?

    Just read in The Week that Lyndon LaRouche and Lee Radziwill died.

    Well, we all do eventually.

    Your annoymouseness got sent to purgatory; The Pending File, awaiting official approval of course. I as the consummate suspicious dude think it is a Right Wing or Russian actor behind the scenes, restricting the freedom of expression and if I knew a good investigator and a lawyer these meddlers would be ready for trash pickup on Monday.
