The Deliberate Dumbing Down of America

Charlotte Iserbyt, author of The Deliberate Dumbing Down of America (click to download free copy), whose father was a former Skull and Bones member, and who served as Senior Policy Advisor in the Office of Educational Research and Improvement, U.S. Department of Education  during the first Reagan Administration,  tells the story of how she discovered, and eventually blew the whistle on the the major initiative to deliberately dumb down America, in order to mold obedient citizens to be dependent on government and multi-national corporations for survival.

Before Charlotte went to Washington, she was very pro-Reagan, so when she was warned about him by a group of California Republicans. She paid no attention. In fact, it angered her...that is, until she found out about him, and much more, for herself.



In addition, in an interview with Yale graduate, Norman Dodd, the 1954 staff director of the Reese congressional special committee to investigate tax-exempt foundations, Dodd exposes the tax-exempt foundations hidden agenda for a One World Government under the UN, which includes dumbing down America.



Funded by the Trustees of the Carnegie Corporation, the following excerpts are from the American Historical Association’s Report on the Commission on Social Studies:

“The Commission was also driven to this broader conception of its task by the obvious fact that American civilization, in common with Western civilization, is passing through one of the great critical ages of history, is modifying its traditional faith in economic individualism, and is embarking upon vast experiments in social planning and control which call for large-scale cooperation on the part of the people.” – pp. 1-2

“As to the specific form which this “collectivism,” this integration and interdependence, is taking and will take in the future, the evidence at hand is by no means clear or unequivocal. It may involve the limiting or supplanting of private property by public property or it may entail the preservation of private property, extended and distributed among the masses. Most likely, it will issue from a process of experimentation and will represent a composite of historic doctrines and social conceptions yet to appear. Almost certainly it will involve a larger measure of compulsory as well as voluntary co-operation of citizens in the conduct of the complex national economy, a corresponding enlargement of the functions of government, and an increasing state intervention in fundamental branches of economy previously left to individual discretion and initiative-a state intervention that in some instances may be direct and mandatory and in others indirect and facilitative. In any event the Commission is convinced by its interpretation of available empirical data that the actually integrating economy of the present day is the forerunner of a consciously integrated society, in which individual economic actions and individual property, rights will be altered and abridged.” – p. 17

“The implications for education are clear and imperative: (a) the efficient functioning of the emerging economy and the full utilization of its potentialities require profound changes in the attitudes and outlook of the American people, especially the rising generation-a complete and frank recognition that the old order is passing, that the new order is emerging.”pp. 34-35
"In the struggle to establish an adequate world government, the teacher has many parts to play... He can do much to prepare the hearts and minds of children for global understanding and cooperation...At the very top of all the agencies which will assure the coming of world government must stand the school, the teacher, and the organized profession." -- National Education Association Journal, 1946
