False Evidence Appearing Real — is a tactic that is being perfected in out political, religious, financial and social environment these days. You have to always make yourself aware that you’re not participating in this practice or perception.
We have heard all sorts of outrageously ridiculous F.E.A.R. tactics being used as recent as yesterday with some partisans accusing the President’s talk to children as ‘unprecedented’, although 3 Republican Presidents and a Democratic President did the same thing. Some have projected or a friendlier word, encouraged parents who don’t realize that they’ve indoctrinated themselves by this propaganda to keep their children out of school.
Have we gone so far that we as a society have out distance our ability to reason for what is real? When did responsibility, accountability, self-control and working hard become taboo and cause for controversy and/or enough to be considered indoctrination? I guess what the indoctrinated fail to realize is the levels the indoctrinated will go when commanded to do something by F.E.A.R. driven people.
Until the nation or civilization stops its production of soft-minded men and women, we will continue to produce our own spiritual death panel on an installment plan. Listen, think, consider and analyze before you speak or act. You are not only creating your own death panel in the lowering of educational standards by encouraging and preventing your children from attending school, but you are essentially indoctrinating them with false evidence appearing real.
When will simple minded Americans evolve to the level that they see all human conflict as an opportunity to love and reject our selfish tendencies of revenge, aggression and retaliation? The foundation of a truly civilized people hinges on its ability to love and consider others. It is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into friend, misconceptions into understanding and F.E.A.R into love.

I guess for some parents, this was just Another Brick In The Wall and decided to take the Pink Floyd approach by telling their children that they Don’t Need No Education. 😀
