You were lied to, you do exist – Cory Digs

From the moment you came out of your mother’s womb, you were still connected to light, to God, to the universe, to everything. Where the mind couldn’t process, all of your senses were working overtime. Love filled your heart and curiosity consumed you.

Then it began. Life took hold, and with every breath, a new word, a new idea, and a new perception were thrusted into your mind. They weren’t your own, but you digested them as best you could. The teachers played their roles, parents followed what they were taught, the radios buzzed with noise, and televisions blasted you with imagery to fill your databank.

Before long, you were doing as told, obeying the rules, staying on everyone else’s schedule, and studying what you were told to learn. By the time you began forming deep thoughts of your own, you had been stripped of your senses, primarily your sixth sense. That connection experienced as a baby was a distant memory. You were now part of the system, the indoctrination, the inevitable slide of hand, being groomed by those who weren’t the wiser.

One day, your mind was swirling with endless ideas about the world, and you dared to discuss it in school, or maybe at home. But you were quickly brushed off because these very ideas did not align with what others had been taught and instructed to teach. How could they respond or discuss that which they themselves could not comprehend or even begin to entertain? So, you stuffed it away and became more disconnected..

Screens In Schools Are a $60 Billion Hoax

It’s a gold rush, not a flood of educational concern

As the dog days of summer wane, most parents are preparing to send their kids back to school. In years past, this has meant buying notebooks and pencils, perhaps even a new backpack. But over the past decade or so, the back-to-school checklist has for many also included an array of screen devices that many parents dutifully stuff into their children’s bags.

The screen revolution has seen pedagogy undergo a seismic shift as technology now dominates the educational landscape. In almost every classroom in America today, you will find some type of screen—smartboards, Chromebooks, tablets, smartphones. From inner-city schools to those in rural and remote towns, we have accepted tech in the classroom as a necessary and beneficial evolution in education.

This is a lie.

Tech in the classroom not only leads to worse educational outcomes for kids, which I will explain shortly, it can also clinically hurt them. I’ve worked with over a thousand teens in the past 15 years and have observed that students who have been raised on a high-tech diet not only appear to struggle more with attention and focus, but also seem to suffer from an adolescent malaise that appears to be a direct byproduct of their digital immersion. Indeed, over two hundred peer-reviewed studies point to screen time correlating to increased ADHD, screen addiction, increased aggression, depression, anxiety and even psychosis.

But if that’s true, why would we have allowed these “educational” Trojan horses to slip into our schools? Follow the money…

The list of supporting education experts and researchers is long…

Comics Drawn By Medical Students Reveal Fear And Confusion

In case you haven’t noticed yet, we at ThoughtCrimeRadio are deeply concerned about the state of the medical field. What we have learned is that thousands of Nazi scientists and doctors were brought to the USA after WWII to continue the work they did in the concentration camps. I guess this explains why the “mad scientists” and diabolical MDs in cartoons and movies always sported a German accent. Med school students are trained cruelly. Cruelty begets cruelty… except in those who are unwilling to lose their decency and humanity. One student’s impression of one of her trainers.

How stressful is medical training? So bad that in a class that encouraged medical students to express their feelings by drawing comics, nearly half of them depicted their supervisors as monsters, researchers say. Courtesy of Trey Banbury Courtesy of Trey Banbury

Students imagined the workplace as dank dungeons, represented supervising physicians as fiendish, foul-mouthed monsters, and themselves as sleep-deprived zombies walking through barren post-apocalyptic landscapes, the study authors, Daniel R. George and Dr. Michael Green, wrote Tuesday in JAMA, the journal of the American Medical Association. They teach the Comics in Medicine class at Penn State College of Medicine.

Immigration, World Poverty and Gumballs

An amazingly clear presentation. Proves to me how practical it would be to turn the military-industrial complex into an infrastructure building and maintenance program. Imagine if we focused all those resources, all that talent, currently employed by the military and armament corporations, and steered the whole shebang into providing education, communication, transportation, irrigation, agriculture, for the world. What if we used all those resources that currently go to creating mayhem, death and destruction, to the support of life for everyone, everywhere? But then, that would require a sane bunch of leaders who value life more than power, profit and the “god” of war.
