Destroying imaginations?

In the world of education, presented by educators that also draw their paychecks from the federal and state governments, it is plan to see they mostly posses a leaning towards a liberal mindset. So is it good to question motive, if any, to their teaching methods, in an effort to avoided a public education that resembles more of a indoctrination to a liberal philosophy, over unbiased pursuit of knowledge based on truth?

At what point is it too much of an education to give to developing minds, and who should decide if so? Can an education do more damage to a human mind, then good?

Aren’t schools supposed to provide educations within a supervised safe environment, for purposes of expanding young minds no matter what the age of that student? Isn’t an education in part a shared responsibility and the job of parents, along with teachers, to inspire imaginations of young people to dream the impossible, to look behind the curtain of life with curiosity?

Every great thinker and inventor has used an active imagination, driving the individual to dream, to innovate, in making dreams and unknown technologies into realities produced in the present. Also known by catch phrase as “Moving forwards”.

An education is bridling the power of thought, inspired to action, in moving towards that future yet imagined. Without the active use of imaginations in our world, we wouldn’t have computers, or all sorts of entertainments, or even books to read, net alone things that are common place for most people used daily without thought, like cars. So when a school system limits a child’s imagination, are they not also robbing that child of their education, or at least damaging or retarding that child’s human potential in an unmeasured way, by potentially crushing their ability’s, or willingness to imagination farther?

Even John Lennon had a song called “Imagine” where people were called to imagine a world different to the present world, different to the world that existed when he wrote the song, different to today’s standards. Had he been this little boy in school, he too could have been suspended, by expressing unpopular imaginations. Can an imagination go too far, and becomes just as dangerous as a weapon?

So no matter where we stand on education, pro or con, we should expect a healthy dose of imagination to be encouraged in our youth, for the pursuit of a well-rounded education, from a school system charged with turning out an educated adult. An education devoid of including, critical thought, or thinking outside of the box, without also including in that realm the encouragement of the use of imagination. Is not really an education, but a political correct indoctrination, a type of brain washing through emotional reasoning or emotional peer pressure in administering a popular education. Children are at a disadvantage in being able to reason philosophically with adults, therefore venerable to the political or liberal presentations masked as an unbiased education.

Who decides what is a good imagination or a bad one, when we are discussing, or defining the thoughts or actions of a child that creates it. Are we to believe that people are born evil or good, so actions of said people are then predetermined? Is there at some point in time, an age of accountability, to what may be considered right and wrong things to imagine? Who then should decide, or teach what is or isn’t proper imagination? The thought police?

In remembering what it was like to be a child, when everything seemed unlimited, where the many possibilities were always possible, where the impossible wasn’t recognized as obstacles, but just a short-term delays on our way to those destinations of personal greatness. Have we forgotten what satisfaction, or a sense of accomplishment felt like, even those imagined which inspired us in making an effort? Why should we then throw the political correct wet blanket over a child’s ability to dream, or to imagine, because what others only see as an imagined threat?

In our world of political correctness what damage have we created within this little boy’s education, or personal views of what is good or bad, what is good or evil, or which is stronger, or who will prevail in any struggle? Even in all of the movies that Hollywood produces there are elements of good and evil, where good always wins. In today’s world there isn’t any question in the argument, the only question that remains is who will define it? What is truly shocking is the carefree attitude of this boy’s parent in accepting her schools actions with regards to the education received, by the veiled attempt of that school in destroying youthful imagination, without parental outrage.

Super heroes who are battling evil, or who are trying to re-adjusting the balance of power between good and evil, in the support of a positive moral compass equally for everyone. Should not only be found in comic books designed for the imaginations of kids, but displayed in real life actions. Parents should never lose sight of their super hero status. Those bigger than life, those real life characters within parents, who in their childs eyes are always to be their super heroes; those same people whose jobs are to be defending by preserving the rights of kids, to be a kid, allowing them to enjoy their innocence, over that of being corrupted at a young age by a social brain washing of political correctness.

Parents are therefore that last line of defence, that supper hero re-adjusting that balance of power, that will tug and pull at their childs emotions. So imagine for a moment if you will, if you still have an imagination, and an unbiased willingness to use it? When has a super hero ever refuse to do those thankless jobs big and small, or allow themselves the freedom in giving in to the mindset or notion that evil will prevail? Saying to themselves,” So what is the use?” Simply because the job may be uncomfortable to do?

It is time conservatives push back respectively against the liberal mindset of political correctness, the insanity that suspends a second-grader for throwing IMAGINARY grenade during recess in Colorado, and sees nothing wrong with passing out the “morning after pill” to kids in New York schools, unknown to their parents, or with any knowledge of their medical histories of those young students receiving them.

This is the kind of mindset that has no future!!  Are we to remain free, with our liberty’s intact, to give to our children as their inheritance that same liberty that we enjoy. Then we must evoke the power of being that super hero, and imagine victory.
