I am totally blown away buy this thread. Some of us who always seem to disagree on "other" stuff are on the same page.
The brain washing is not only in the Schools, propaganda/brain-washing is all over the TV too.
Going back to Gibs original question? I think "we" (the parents) have actually unintentionally "Socialized" our on kids by giving them so much stuff they didn't work for but some of whats in School Books is totally wrong. Period.
Between Socialization and the Double Standard, we are almost done for.
