ADVERTISEMENT Vebyast It would be interesting to see how these statistics compare to other college grads in the field that the teacher is getting a certificate in — that is, how a math teacher compares with a math major, how an english teacher compares to an english major. But elementary teachers are the most important of all in many ways, no? And guess what, Finland scored the top PISA student skills at the age of 15 scores for many years in a row in the world, above Asia.
The death of Truth: Epitaph for a Dying Culture The Kavanaugh confirmation hearings and their endless sequelae have ended up as an epitaph for a spent culture for which its remedies are felt to be worse than its diseases. Supreme Court required the systematic refutation of the entire notion of Western jurisprudence by senators and much of the American legal establishment.
And there was no hesitation in doing just that on the part of Senate Democrats, the MeToo movement, and the press. And I write this at a moment in which conservatives and Republicans still control the majority of governorships, state legislatures, the U.
Senate, the House of Representatives, the Supreme Court and the presidency—a reminder that culture so often is far more powerful than politics. So, here we were to be left with a new legal and cultural standard in adjudicating future disagreements and disputes, an utterly anti-Western standard quite befitting for our new relativist age: The veracity of accusations will hinge on the particular identity, emotions, and ideology of the accuser; Evidence, or lack of it, will be tangential, given the supposed unimpeachable motives of the ideologically correct accuser; The burden of proof and evidence will rest with the accused to disprove the preordained assumption of guilt; Hearsay will be a valuable narrative and constitute legitimate evidence; Truth is not universal, but individualized.
Questionable and inconsistent testimony are proof of trauma and therefore exactitude; recalling an accusation to someone is proof that the action in the accusation took place.
Statutes of limitations do not exist; any allegation of decades prior is as valid as any in the present. All of us are subject at any moment to unsubstantiated accusations from decades past that will destroy lives. Assertion of an alleged crime is unimpeachable proof.
Recall of where, when, why, and how it took place is irrelevant. Individual accusations will always be subservient to cosmic causes; individuals are irrelevant if they do not serve ideological aims. All accusations fit universal stereotypes whose rules of finding guilt or innocence trump those of individual cases.
The accuser establishes the conditions under which charges are investigated; the accused nods assent. Our cultural traditions are being insidiously rewritten in this new Dark Age. Perhaps university presses can either reissue properly corrected editions or ban the Hippolytus entirely.
Our society is undergoing a fundamental transformation that is absolutely breathtaking, and some of the changes have been positive. But many would argue that most of the changes have been negative, and the truth is that we can see evidence of this all around us.
Because we are so disconnected from one another, it is very easy for each of us to get intensely focused on the details of our own daily lives. But when we step back and take a broader view of things, the extent to which our society has deteriorated is quite stunning.
Today, I would like to share with you 7 glimpses into the social decay that is voraciously eating away at the fabric of our country… continue Turning away from God, the family, increasing violence and more: Great civilizations of the past were destroyed when people saw these signs but failed to act.
Each of these indicators is with us today. The first sign of the end of a culture is that of a society which no longer worships or acknowledges God.
Christianity had played a significant role in the discovery and settlement of America.
It had provided a standard in judging education, legislation, and behavior-both public and private. In the s, it has actually become unpopular to advocate traditional Judeo-Christian values, such as the Ten Commandments. Thanks to Political Correctness, the popular culture ridicules those who worship God as the sovereign creator.
Instead, it is popular to put our faith and trust in ourselves or in other creations of God. The Deep State Is Free to Prey Upon Your Children The United Nations Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights is sanctioning a sexual revolution that will culminate in the legalization and whole-hearted support of transgenderism but will also support the legalization of pedophilia.
As the Deep State is further exposed for their role in Pedogate, we can expect more counterattacks such as the legalization of pedophilia.
Just as we have witnessed in so many other countries, the birth rate in the United States continues to fall. In fact, it just plunged to yet another new all-time record low. So why would the elite want this to happen?If you've been white-knuckling it through coverage of Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court confirmation this week, you've probably noticed a rape culture myth that's been given a lot of air time: that.
A Collection of Interesting, Important, and Controversial Perspectives Largely Excluded from the American Mainstream Media. Tales of DC’s Beach Week and the Debauched Private School Culture That Created Brett Kavanaugh.
Biggest things that stand out in my mind was the fact that our final party of the week got.
Multiple accounts from s-era classmates depict an alcohol-soaked party culture among the close-knit network of single-sex, mostly Roman Catholic private schools in the country's wealthiest state. Our world is such a non-stop horror show of violence, greed, and NCIS spinoffs that the aforementioned hypothetical, grisly scenario isn’t quite that far-fetched.
Looking at Brett Kavanaugh’s calendar brought it all back: the way those calendars weren’t just for personal convenience, but were, on some unconscious level, another kind of performance.
