Many young people turned to drugs and immoral lifestyles; these
youth became known as hippies. They went without bathing, wore
dirty, ragged, unconventional clothing, and deliberately broke all
codes of politeness or manners. Rock music played an important
part in the hippie movement and had great influence over the hippies.
Many of the rock musicians they followed belonged to Eastern
religious cults or practiced Satan worship.

"A few slave holders were undeniably cruel. Examples of slaves
beaten to death were not common, neither were they unknown.
The majority of slave holders treated their slaves well."—United

Press, 1991.
And:
"[The Ku Klux] Klan in some areas of the country tried to be a
means of reform, fighting the decline in morality and using the
symbol of the cross. Klan targets were bootleggers, wife-beaters,
and immoral movies. In some communities it achieved a certain
respectability as it worked with politicians."—United States History

This teaching is so bad. How do you publish textbooks without
fact-check? More importantly, how can a textbook be used in
a public school without any In-Depth facts? Is there anyone responsible
for textbook accuracy in the state of La ? Where are the parents

Let’s turn to the assault on education, one element of the general elite reaction
to the civilizing effect of the ‘60s. On the right side of the political spectrum, one
striking illustration is an influential memorandum written by Lewis Powell, a
corporate lawyer working for the tobacco industry, later appointed to the
Supreme Court by Richard Nixon. At the other end of the narrow spectrum,
there was an important study by the Trilateral Commission, liberal
internationalists from the three major state capitalist industrial systems: the US,
Europe and Japan. Both provide good insight into why the assault targets the
educational system.

But in the ‘60s, something dangerous happened. Special interest groups began
to try to enter the political arena and press for their demands. The special
interests were women, minorities, young people, old people, farmers, workers.
In other words: The population, who are supposed to sit obediently while the
intelligent minority runs things in the interest of everyone, according to liberal
democratic theory – and this is no exaggeration either. There's one group
omitted in the lament of the liberal internationalists: The corporate sector. That's
because they don't comprise a special interest; they represent the national
Interest. Therefore their dominant influence in what we call democracy is right
and proper, and merits no mention or concern.
