What passes for education these days

| September 20, 2021

First up we have pedophilia pornography making its way into at least one high school. The book in question is Lawn Boy by Jonathan Evison. Amazon’s site lists an editorial review from School Library Journal that describes the book thusly;

Eminently readable and deeply thought-provoking, Evison’s deceptively simple novel takes on tough issues such as race, sexual identity, and the crushing weight of American capitalism.

Sounds like a great book for kids. The “crushing weight of American capitalism”? No wonder kids are ashamed of or triggered by the American flag.

This is not to be confused with (or maybe intentionally designed to be confused with) Lawn Boy by Gary Paulsen. Paulsen’s book came out in 2007 while Evison’s came out in 2018. Paulsen’s story is apparently a short, easy read for teens and is an unashamed endorsement of capitalism.

“We Sucked Eachother’s D***s” – Mother Reads Sexually Explicit School Book To Board Members

A concerned mother brought a school book to her school board to address the sexual harassment and vulgar language that is being pushed on her children.

This specific book references 10-year old fourth-graders engaging in homosexual actions and using language like “his little salamander between my fourth-grade fingers rapidly engorging with blood”.

It also used the word “f*ck” 44 times and “sh*t” 41 times before page 66, according to the mom.

Now, the toll that climate change alarmism has on our youth. You’ll recall that for 50+ years now there have been dire, cataclysmic predictions about the Earth’s dwindling natural resources, impending global catastrophe, and blame for changes global weather patterns being laid on people and our modern conveniences. Why anyone would keep listening to people who are so consistently wrong that they have a flawless track record of being wrong is beyond me. I mean, it’s like a person following Joe Biden’s advice on foreign policy. There’s a 100% track record of failure behind them, so just do the opposite of what they predict and you’ll win!

Here are some snippets of climate alarmists’ predictions and how insanely wrong they were. Literal Chicken Littles. Some of these people, such as original and perennially wrong climate soothsayer Paul Ehrlich, are still sought out by, and propped up by, the media as experts. If your surgeon killed every single patient they opened up, would you still want him to remove your appendix?

It’s no surprise then that kids indoctrinated into the fear that their world is doomed to failure and there’s nothing they can do to help it have a pessimistic outlook on their futures.

56 Percent of Young People Think Humanity Is Doomed

Ironically, 56 percent of those over 40 would also think humanity is doomed, but only because 56 percent of our kids can’t see that they are living in, by every single objective measure, the greatest time to be alive in all of human history.

Lichen, an 18-year-old living in Hawaii, used to worry about the end of the world, but lately that doesn’t feel all that distant. Now, they’re simply worried about what’s next. And it’s a worry that is affecting nearly half of the world’s young people.

According to what its authors say is the world’s largest ever study into young people’s fears about the climate crisis, 45 percent of 16-25-year-olds said climate-related anxiety and distress is affecting their daily lives and ability to function normally.

Almost 60 percent of the 10,000 young people surveyed across 10 countries attributed this to their national governments, who they said were “betraying” them and future generations through their inaction. Fifty-six percent of people surveyed said they agreed with the statement that humanity is doomed, while 75 percent said they believed the future was frightening.

The study, published today in Lancet Planetary Health and led by academics and professionals at the University of Bath, Stanford Medicine Centre for Innovation in Global Health, Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust and others, found that people from countries more directly and immediately impacted by climate change tended to be more worried about the future. Ninety-two percent of young people in the Philippines said they felt like the future was frightening, compared to just 56 percent in Finland.

But young people in the UK and the U.S. had less faith in their governments than countries like Nigeria and India. Only 28 percent and 21 percent of young Brits and Americans thought the government could be trusted when it came to the planet – whereas 51 percent of Indians had faith in the authorities.

We have that going for us, I suppose. The government’s never met a problem they couldn’t make worse, so I’m glad to see our kids are skeptical.

    Someone named a kid “Lichen”? As in the fungus/algae?

    No wonder he/she/it feels anxiety about the end of the world.

  2. Green Thumb says:

    I am sure there is a copy of Lawn Boy in the main library of All-Points Logistics in Merritt Island, Florida.

  3. QMC says:

    Just turn your television on and see what passes for “news” and “journalism” these days.

    No surprise that the same correlation can be made for what passes as education these days.

  4. Graybeard says:

    There is a reason homeschooling is rapidly growing.

    Glen Reynolds at Instapundit has often posted that sending ones children to public schools is more and more like child abuse.

  5. KoB says:

    The Liberal/Communist/Socialist/Marxist indoctrination over the last 50-100 years is finally taking root for them. The entire bunch needs doing to them what we do to them wild boars down here. Trap and a sharp shank.

      Make sure you thoroughly cook the meat, Big Guy.

      How come the wild hogs you hunt are more physically fit than the slobs that pass for teachers these days?

    Deviated preverts

  7. David says:

    I stopped reading at “56% of them are weak tits”.

  8. 5JC says:

    Humanity is doomed. On a long enough time line we are all dead. How long that time line is, is the only question. I think I will be long dead before all that happens.

  9. Poetrooper says:

    It is ol’ Poe’s strong belief that contemporary, neurotic liberals with all their Chicken Little fears are guilty of child abuse on a massive scale.

    They keep their children and ours in a constant state of anxiety that is only going to produce even greater numbers of fear-filled neurotics with even more farfetched fantasies to populate the future world.

  10. Ex-PH2 says:

    There’s more on this, and how the current climate nutballs are saying things that literally violate the laws of physics.

    I will bring that up later. Those pipples give me a headache.

      People have been saying that the world is ending as long as mankind has stood upright.
      It’s superstition and that’s it.
      The Inca’s and most native American tribes sacrificed virgins and assorted others to please the Gods when the rains didn’t come or came in too much abundance.
      Moral of the story….
      Don’t be a virgin…..

    “If you’d like to hear/read some of the book, click through the link.”

    I’ll pass. If the cops ever look through my computer memory they’ll find stuff that’s disturbing enough without snippets of child porn showing up.

  12. Dustoff says:

    I’ll have to agree on one point. “The future is frightening”, when these idiots become full fledged adults ( maybe that will never happen) and are running things.
