Charlotte Iserbyt | The Deliberate Dumbing Down of the World, January 27, 2012


At first Charlotte Iserbyt comes across as atavistic and prone to overstatement. She's railing against regionalism, communitarianism, collective economics…and charter schools. She says public schools are being used to indoctrinate communism. She says a program implemented in the 60s, the result of studies and agreements among secret society members and Russians and psychiatrists, and decreed by the White House, aims to move America into a one-world government. It's an international plan to destroy values and patriotism, implement Pavlovian (involuntary) responses to situations, to dumb down the world, to turn it into socialism.

Feisty, opinionated, loquacious, and an equal opportunity offender, if Iserbyt

didn't have all kinds of documentation and quotes and detail, one would shut out her assertions as the rants of a muddled mind, an ancient meme.

But this accomplished author, former school board member, Department of Education and Department of State alum, and foreign-service wife, has spent decades amassing evidence and speaking out about what's gone wrong with our schools.

On many counts, she is undoubtedly accurate. When Iserbyt mentions David Rockefeller professing gratitude to the media for not impeding his one world government agenda, Mel interjects a sound bite of David Rockefeller professing gratitude to the media for not impeding his one world government agenda.

It's her summation that is more difficult to gauge. Could it be so simple?

The liberals, the conservatives, the government, the U.N., charter schools, technology, Carter, Johnson, Reagan, Bush, Obama, Rockefeller, Bloom, Drucker…"They're all moving us toward communism," she says.

Some more of her assertions:

“They aren't taught multiplication tables anymore, or grammar, or American history. They aren't allowed to write in script. They just get socialism studies, political correctness."

“The Department of Education and the United Nations think your children are animals to be changed."

“Parents: you don't know what they are doing behind closed doors."

"Charter schools are the beginning of the devolution of our form of government."

"Every time you hear the word, community, it's about communism."

“We are now a communist country. The biggest evil conspiracy the world has ever known has been perpetrated on us."

Iserbyt's websites contain 150,000 pages of testimony, articles and books that support her point. She says she'll give $1000 to anyone who can prove her wrong.
