Sports are the circuses of bread and circuses.

Blaming sports for American schools being bad is a roundabout way of blaming the poor.

The most ridiculous school shooting video I have ever seen. Safe for work. Nobody getting hurt in the video.

Tax the poor and spend it on sports facilities so they aspire to be ignorant and concussed.

Tell me the lizard people don't exist.

You have to give the voters what they want. America being the way it is is mostly a choice.

You have to give the voters what they're conditioned to want by the educational system.

Its the perfect virtuous circle.

higher levels of education correlate with progressive/liberal politics.

the education system, in its higher levels, conditions people to want to improve society and make it more just and equitable.

it's ignorant people who make a virtue out of not reading, not considering other perspectives/Others, and take pride in being incurious, people like you, who further the sadistic cycle of pain and calamitous choices.

see almost all of your political opinions on this sub-forum. weren't you gloating over brexit being a good thing and the 'wisdom' of 'the peeepul'?

Nope, never said that, you seem to have a very tenuous grip on reality.

You keep making up things I haven't said, you certainly must be a strange editor.

Do you get texts back "WTF I didn't write that take it out"

The amount of money American schools spend on 'sports' is insane.
Most high school sports are self funded. Most sports programs before that are not connected to schools.

I just realized I have to change what I am teaching today. I was going to do a lesson on weapon technology during the age of New Imperialism. I realized that wouldn't be a good thing to do when I started searching in YouTube for "colonial Gatling gun" and got hits from yesterday's event.

Yeah but this affects every school in America at least for a few days.

Some of you should never have been expected to learn anything about politics


One look at this forum and one might be tempted to reinstate serfdom

What is it with Germans and forcing people to commit labor? Why are the Germans like this?

Larssen in his ivory tower taking shots at people who have not spent ~6 years specifically studying politics.

Never punch down. Characteristic of a poor leader.

When the meeting opened up to public comments, there was an indication of what those other things might be. Parents and other residents took turns standing before the board, speaking about Zionism, Maoism, slavery, freedom, the Holocaust, critical race theory, the illegality of mask requirements, supposed Jewish ties to organized crime and the viral falsehood that transgender students were raping people in bathrooms.
Larsen, why are the parents like this?

What, you expect me to create groundbreaking theoretical frameworks next to my actual job? That's what society pays PhD students slave wages to do

hahahaha he did write a book report on hegel and claimed he had an intimate knowledge of it.

dilbert thinks he can know everything there is to know, to win any argument, by googling something and copy+pasting the first 3 links he finds.

these people sorely lack a humanities education.

No, they have been shown too much!

In a world of serfs, knowledge could be closely guarded, so that those with an obvious talent for tilling fields, building decks and calculating the circumference of a bunch of tubes needn't be distracted from the task at hand.
