Similar to Nazi education or Red China
Yeah. I almost wish I could see the proposed curriculum.

Teaching history accurately doesn’t make it communist. 😂Slavery and genocide ARE evil. In all contexts and in all parts of the world.
@okeydoke its communist because its goal is to break america down and demoralize it for the purpose of replacing it with communismand its evil to teach history for the purpose of hurting the current inhabitants. history should only be taught if it has a purpose. being factual is not good enough on its own. not that the 1619 project is factual it weaves a fake narrative that implies america was worse than it was
Who told you that’s what makes something communist? 😂Sorry to break it to you, but the Cold War has been over for a few decades.The purpose of teaching history is to create leaders for a better future and learn from the decisions of the past. I’m an ex-elementary school history teacher myself. And education isn’t intended to be ego masturbation.
@okeydoke yuri besmenov told me it was communisthe told us that the left would infiltrate college campuses and would start teaching gender studies and social justice for the purpose of demoralizing the population to destroy the 4 olds. www.youtube.com/watchthe number of things he got right decades in advance is astounding.your explanation of the purpose of history is vague, and wrong. history must serve a purpose. its goal must be to create unity and weave a narrative that promotes a succesful future. telling americans that their history is evil cannot provide unity.yes history is supposed to be ego masturbation. that's healthy
The Soviet Union no longer exists. The cold war has been over for decades. I already declared what I think the purpose of history is. You don’t have to like it, but it is what I believe.The way you view how history should be understood is ironically very akin to how Maoists and Stalinists view it. And I suspect you would have been very comfortable with the Nazi Youth in the 1930s.
@okeydoke the soviet union no longer exists, its final plots and tendrils of ideology do thoughcommunism isn't a society, its the manifestation of human greed. the war against communism can never end because greed can never be fully gone.how i describe history is how EVERY civilization describes history. so you can list all of the civilizations you want. bad or good. people need a common legend to hold them together
In what way is communism the pursuit of human greed? Marxism is quite literally an attempt to overthrow market capital and distribute resources equally. You’re thinking of free market capitalism. The common legend we teach is a pursuit of a better future through the ideals of the constitution AND its amendments. Through images of the Statue of Liberty and the defeat of Naziism.There are things to be proud of. Enough that we don’t need to lie that slavery, indentured servitude, genocide, witch trials, imperialism, etc. were great benevolences.
@okeydoke aha so the guy defending the 1619 project IS a communist, surprise surprisecommunism is the desire to have something you did not earn. equality is the pursuit of things you did not earn at the expense of those who did earn them. ironically creating the highest amount of inequality of all because a communist society requires someone to watch over it and maintain the "equality" and that person or group will always give more to themselvescapitalism works WITH human greed and transforms it into a benefit to others. capitalism rewards green but doesn't let it hurt others the way communism does.the 1619 project does not pursue a better future, it pursues communism, the sick idea of equality by trying to force everyone to have the same outcome even though that isn't earned, isn't possible, and isn't right. freedom depends on inequality to work
Ironically I’m not a communist. I am openly a democratic socialist. I’m pretty confident you have no idea what that is though.Go read up on base Marxist theory and get back to me afterwards. you clearly have your own thesis on it that’s not based on that actual text. Like I said, I’m not a communist. So I’m not about to defend the conceptual Dictatorship of the Proletariat as soviets ascribed by.I do like how you think capitalism doesn’t hurt others though. That’s why unions had to be created. Because factory owners did not try to force strikers to work at gun point. For the umpteenth time I’m not a communist. Besides the fact that you just jumped away from the topic of teaching history entirely. At which point, I’m no longer interested.
@okeydoke socialists are communist "the goal of all socialism is communism" vladimir lenin"you are a communist socialism is always the means to communism
I said I was a Democratic Socialist. As I thought, you’ve no idea what that is.
@okeydoke i know what it is better than you doadding the word democrat on the front of something doesn't change what it is, only the delivery methodso you are still a socialist , and thus still a communist
@okeydoke actually fascism is a variant of socialism mixed with nationalism. mussolini wrote for a socialist outlet before deciding he loved his country also. but he never stopped being socialist i guess you aren't a very good history teacher, then again if you were successful at life you wouldn't be a communist
The misunderstanding of history and nomenclature is so profound, I think it might break my phone. Do you also think that North Korea is a democratic people’s republic?
@okeydoke no, they are just using it as propagandabut hitler and mussolini sincerely believed in socialism as is displayed by their policies and speeches and ideological roots
They are one of the strictest of the evangelical wings of christianity riled in hypocrisy
So? They're not bothering anybody. Let them believe what they want.
1969 Commission? You mean like Woodstock? Lol
