The Madness of a Lost Society

There are more and more videos like this on the www. Some of it is, undoubtedly, a result of the proliferation of the web itself. Some of it reflects the breakdown of our school systems - most notably and egregiously, our public school system. Think about things like 'civics', 'citizenship', 'values', 'character Ed.' and the like. Not only are we not teaching them in our schools, they SHOULDN'T be taught in school - they should be learned at home and in the community. The following video, in 4 minutes, shows what happens when "The Civic Education that Everybody Needs" as V. D. Hanson has written, is scrapped.

What does my school do to 'fix' the problem? We hire more $1000 a day 'progressive educators' from Columbia's Teachers's College. Well, at least the people in the video and our student population have solid levels of self esteem.
