Why are Americans becoming more stupid?

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

“This is now state of war, fifth generational war – from the inside, not kinetic, but lawfare against the society in order to destroy it. Destroy morals and ethics, the sense of fairness, destroy the understanding that rights only work when tied to responsibilities. Break the family – get young to not marry, be bisexual or gay if possible. Create mental illness (phones, entertainment industry, the ‘health departments, vaccine), increase Crime, increase anti-social behavior, import a vast number of unsuitable people, cause them to not absorb in the native culture to fragment society. Destroy religion. Destroy patriotism.

Remove enlightenment liberalism (the writers of the USA Constitution, for example) and replace the philosophy with Postmodernism, which is basically Satan’s creed. Grow debt past the ability to pay to service it, award entitlements to the public sure to bankrupt the nation as they have to be borrowed to pay them out – then have to borrow to ‘service’ that debt’s interest payments, which is called a ‘doom loop’, borrowing to pay interest on debt….. Make home ownership unaffordable to young so they do not have Families. Basically do everything the Unipartys of all Western Nations do – abetted and run by their ‘Deep States’ and Globalist masters. Keep ‘Forever Wars” burning to justify a secret Police state, the ‘Security Services’ are now watching you, their resources turned inward….

But enough listing – I am sure you know a hundred more insane things being done – and even enforced, to destroy us all. (Kneeling?) drugs, homelessness, just endless.

At the heart of it all is to destroy Enlightenment and Classical Education. One which has good and evil – not ‘correct and incorrect.’ The people are utterly powerless once you replace that with Postmodernism Liberalism. No morals, No ethics, nothing of ultimate importance.

Why are Americans becoming more stupid?

Our entire education system needs a revolution

By: Joel Kotkin, Unherd, February 26, 2024:

“The empires of the future are the empires of the mind,” said Winston Churchill. And judging by the state of education in America, it seems both of those empires could soon crumble. The dysfunction is evident from top to bottom: from Ivy League outposts down to the secondary schools. Both are producing a generation that is ill-informed, illiterate and innumerate. In other words, a generation increasingly ill-suited to function as productive citizens in a democracy.

One might expect, then, that the creation of a raft of new universities and schools focused on doing something different would seem like a fundamental necessity. After all, young people are deserting college in droves, with enrolments down by 15% over the past decade; in the lower grades, it’s common to hear talk of “zombie schools”, the product of more than 20% of pupils being “chronically absent”.

And yet, the emergence of these still-small shoots have terrified the educratic establishment. Some claim the shift in emphasis towards classics and civics, now occurring in places such as Florida’s New College, is “sinister development” by nefarious Right-wingers. Similarly, the teachers’ unions have resisted a number of moves to create charter schools — which increase choice in the public system — because they are part of a “war on schools”.

In some cases, the defence of failure is breathtaking. Blue states such as Illinois have worked to all but eliminate charters, even as the Land of Lincoln boasts 53 schools where not one student can do grade-level math and 30 where none can do so in English. These schools are overwhelmingly in Chicago, where a significant increase in spending per student since 2019 seems to have made no impact.

Yet Chicago’s failures are wholly representative. The most recent National Assessments of Educational Progress found that only 27% of eighth graders are proficient in reading, 20% in math, 22% in geography, and a mere 13% in US History. The Covid lockdowns may have accelerated the deterioration, but scores have continued to decline since the pandemic ended. IQ scores, which had been rising for decades, are now falling even among college students.

More influential here is education’s gradual radicalisation, which has its origins at the top of the food chain. Already in 2018, one study of 51 top-rated colleges found that the proportion of liberals to conservatives was generally at least 8 to 1, and often as high as 70 to 1. Five years later, nearly three in five US professors admitted to self-censoring to avoid offending administrators and students.

      Becoming more stupid because they took the death vax or are forced to be close to those who did. Now their cognitive function’s are compromised. When I was compromised by being near vaxxed and getting infected with their forever spike proteins, I lost around 15 to 25 IQ. I could no longer read science fiction as I could not visualize as before. Only extreme decontamination protocols for 9 months freed me of the dumbing down and got me 95% back. Without exception everyone I tried to tell ridiculed me and asked if I was losing my mind. Now 4 years later many articles have been written confirming everything I had said. Not one apology or acknowledgement they were fooled.

      New research shows that those who received the COVID shots emit a fluorescent orange glow in their faces that is visible under a UV light of 365 nano-meters. And those who have been exposed to shedding emit this glow around their nose.

      After his wife was coerced into getting the COVID shot, PhD Justin Coy began his own research. He found that the more shots a person received, the more they glowed under UV light. The glow can be seen initially around the nose, and over time spreads throughout the entire face and into the neck.

      After a hot shower, filaments are expelled through the skin of the vaxxed. And these filaments also emit a glow under UV light.
      And when a person who has received the shot has dry skin, these expelled filaments will become airborne. This could explain how shedding occurs from the vaxxed to the unvaxxed. The Pfizer trial documents stated that an unvaxxed individual in close proximity to someone who’s been vaxxed can be infected by inhalation and skin contact.

      Easy one!! In 1911, the British Empire Press Union, now known as The Commonwealth Press Union, set up an American franchise to control news media information called The Council on Foreign Relations. many source say “1921″ as the date, but this is false. In February, 1917, after 3 years of investigation into the CFR, Honorable Representative Oscar Callaway submitted his findings to the U.S. Congress. This is still found at Law Libraries across the U.S.. Read it. Also, Secretary of Education under Ronald Reagan, Charlotte Iserbyte, wrote a book about this intentional ‘dumbing down’ of the public. ‘The Dumbing Down of America’. The triad of John D. Rockefeller, J.P. Morgan, and the bottomless pit fiat currency based on fractional lending known as the Rothschild banking empire with their new CFR aimed, as stated in documents from that time, “to buy up all influential newspapers and editorial boards to create public debate and thus control the minds of the American people. After burning Lahaina Maui to the ground and killing and injuring many millions of people, the American public for the most part, has ZERO idea of who and how these murders were carried out. The public is STUPID and OBLIVIOUS to a fault. CFR television lies to viewers every day about agenda in which the CFR takes part. I loved my mother and grandmothers. They took care of us and we took care of them, with no divorces. But if these noble women looked down from heaven and saw me watching television, I…
