Over the past three months, I’ve learned so much about education reforms in America and what they are doing to our freedoms. It is not pretty. It makes me very sad. But I would not want to go back to my ignorance about Common Core. Now I’m reading more and more about freedom and the Constitution on issues connected to education reforms either directly or indirectly.
I’m going to give three links to free online books that I am reading right now, in case anyone out there wants to join me on the learning curve. I think of this as a self-directed, no credit class called on “How to Save American Freedom of Education Via the United States Constitution and Faith in God 101”.
First, THE BOOK OF MORMON http://www.lds.org/scriptures/bofm/1-ne?lang=eng
and the HOLY BIBLE: http://www.lds.org/scriptures/bible?lang=eng.
Both of these books have lots to say about history, about liberty, about the end of the world, the control efforts of wicked forces upon good forces, and the battles for freedom.
Second, THE BOOK OF MORMON AND THE CONSTITUTION – by H. Verlan Andersen
H. Verlan Andersen, a general authority and a close friend of President Ezra Taft Benson, is the author of “The Book of Mormon and the Constitution,” which I just started reading last week and am in love with. It explains so clearly what is going on in America today (including in education reforms) from the angle of faith in Christ and His prophets.
I never knew it was available online for free until today. Happy reading!
Third book: NONE DARE CALL IT CONSPIRACY by Gary Allen
Another book that I want to read, and haven’t yet, is “None Dare Call it Conspiracy,” by Gary Allen. This book was recommended by my father, by many other smart and patriotic people I’ve known.
President Ezra Taft Benson, a prophet, recommended this book. (See clip below)
Click for the book: http://www.whale.to/b/allen_b1.html –and it is online, free.
Click for the recommendation by President Ezra Taft Benson: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pJNMcD2IY_k This is a YouTube video of Ezra Taft Benson speaking in a 1972 conference and recommending this book. In the same talk, President Benson says that there is no Book of Mormon Conspiracy Theory. It is a Book of Mormon Conspiracy Fact.
Nations were extinguished, the Book of Mormon history shows, because of secret combinations that the good people upheld because they were deceived by them, and/or they profited from them.
Fourth book: THE DELIBERATE DUMBING DOWN by Charlotte Iserbyt
Even though I have only scanned the first few pages of this book and seen half of the hour-long YouTube interview, I want to share the links to her interview and to the book. I sense its importance. I have seen Charlotte Iserbyt interviewed about her life story –incredible story you can see on YouTube (an hour long). http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ezTIYd5UFRY&noredirect=1
So, this a must-read for me, for sure. Charlotte Iserbyt was a whistle blower who realized there really is an agenda of power and money that damages and controls public education, that overrides what’s best for children and American freedom in treacherous ways. http://www.deliberatedumbingdown.com/MomsPDFs/DDDoA.sml.pdf (Link to her free book PDF online.)
Iserbyt served as the head of policy at the Department of Education during the first administration of Ronald Reagan. While working there, she discovered a long term strategic plan by the tax exempt foundations to transform America from a nation of rugged individualists and problem solvers to a country of servile, brainwashed simpletons, easy to control, who regurgitate whatever they’re told.
Sound like Common Core? Of course.
