In 1953, before I left the USA for a 20-year period overseas, a close friend of mine’s father, a well known N.Y.C. psychiatrist and sculptor, who ordinarily said little over the dinner table, predicted that the USA would go down due to Professor John Dewey, communist educator, and television, which had just reared its ugly head in all homes of America. How right he was.
His comments were followed thirty years later by those of John Dunphy in “A RELIGION FOR A NEW AGE” published in the January/February 1983 issue of The Humanist, the journal of the American Humanist Association. Dunphy lifts the veil of respectability from humanism and humanistic ethics. Excerpts follow:
- I am convinced that the battle for humankind’s future must be waged and won in the
public school classroom by teachers who correctly perceive their role as the proselytizers of a
new faith: a religion of humanity that recognizes and respects the spark of what theologians
call divinity in every human being.
These teachers must embody the same selfless dedication as the most rabid fundamentalist
preachers, for they will be ministers of another sort, utilizing a classroom instead of a
pulpit to convey humanist values in whatever subjects they teach, regardless of the education
level—preschool day care or a large university.
The classroom must and will become an arena of conflict between the old and the
new—the rotting corpse of Christianity, together with all its adjacent evils and misery, and
the new faith of Humanism, resplendent in its premise of a world in which the never-realized
Christian idea of “love thy neighbor” will finally be achieved.
Take a look at the chart below entitled: “US Government Spending Breakdown: Federal, State, Local for 2015 – Charts.” Total Federal, State and Local education spending = $0.9 trillion dollars, of which $141 billion is federal funding. Defense Department spending, in contrast, is $0.8 trillion dollars. These education and defense spending statistics tell a whopping story which even I, until I saw the official statistics, would never have believed possible.
Did you ever believe that education spending (federal, state, and local levels combined) would/could exceed defense spending? [click picture for larger view]

Add to our nation’s dismal future the fact that Americans now, due to approval across the board of charter schools, will no longer have the right to vote on education budgets at the local/state level, thus removing you the taxpayer from having any say in your local school budget or the content of your child’s education. This is a fact due to tax-funded school choice and charter schools (without elected boards) being carved in stone by President Trump, his Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos, and approved by the U.S. Congress. Implementation of the lifelong learning/school to work agenda required removal of locally elected school board members. Locally elected boards would never have allowed such a shift from academics to workforce training.
Not allowing taxpayers to vote on education, the biggest budget item, is the first domino to fall, followed by not allowing us to vote on other budget items all the way down to the salary for your town’s dog catcher.
Didn’t Americans fight the American Revolution over the issue of taxation without representation?
Here is the plan out of the mouth of a so-called libertarian/conservative leader:
Willard W. Garvey, Executive Director of the National Center for Privatization, in a letter to President Ronald Reagan, date April 6, 1984, said:
“Privatization is now an idea whose time has come…The knowledge, communication and computer industry can make political representatives obsolete. Privatization might well be the theme for the 200th anniversary of the Constitution. Privatization is essential for national salvation.”
The following notation was printed on the letterhead of the above-mentioned letter:
The National Center for Privatization is supported by the following groups and individuals: Heritage and Reason Foundations; Pacific and Manhattan Institutes; VOLUNTEER; National Center for Citizen Involvement; International Executive Service Corps; United Way with its Services Identification System; National Legal Center for the Public; churches; labor unions, Peter Drucker and Milton Friedman.
Our nation has lost its constitutional and moral roots and is like a ship, without a compass, tossing around in a raging sea, not knowing in which direction to navigate, how to escape the looming disaster. A doctor can’t cure an illness without understanding the source of that illness. Americans are so dumbed down, in every way, but especially historically, they can’t and don’t want to see the forest for the trees. It’s less stressful to play on Facebook, Twitter, etc.
It took billions of dollars over a period of fifty years to turn Americans into willing slaves of the unconstitutional system being implemented as I write, using a federally-funded, non-academic, humanistic (atheist), brainwashing/lifelong/global workforce training curriculum, over which taxpayers no longer have any control.
The New York psychiatrist was “spot on” about John Dewey and TV causing the demise of the USA; John Dunphy was “spot on” about implementation of humanist/atheist/globalist brainwashing philosophy through the schools; and Willard Garvey was “spot on” regarding the nail in the coffin: removal of elected boards (representative government).
