You have been systematically deprived of the most important elements of an American education.
In 1962, The United States Supreme Court made one of the most important decisions regarding education in the history of the United States (Engel v. Vitale, 370 US 421 at 443). All nine Justices on the Court knew what Justice Douglas knew, as he wrote in footnote 9 of his opinion:
- Religion was once deemed to be a function of the public school system. The Northwest Ordinance, which antedated the First Amendment, provided in Article III that
- Religion, morality, and knowledge being necessary to good government and the happiness of mankind, schools and the means of education shall forever be encouraged.
Despite knowing the original intent of America's Founding Fathers and founding educators, the Supreme Court proceeded to remove the Christian religion and Christian morality from government-run schools.
It is impossible to teach "knowledge" (reading, writing, arithmetic, etc.) without teaching religion and morality.
If you have a classroom with 30 would-be gods, each one believing they have the right to define their own morality, none of them believing they have a moral duty to respect the learning environment of other students, and certainly no duty to honor the authority of the teacher, you no longer have a classroom, you have chaos.
Every single person who signed the Declaration of Independence and Constitution, were they to walk into any public school classroom in 2010, would immediately conclude that America's public schools are in a state of chaos.
A chaos of morals, a chaos of character, and a chaos of academic learning.
America's test scores bear this out.
Escalating crime rates among school-aged children also bear this out.
If you attended government-run schools after 1962, you are a victim of educational malpractice.
TheLifelongLearner.com offers a home-study course that is 100% guaranteed to transform you into:
- • an extraordinary American

How can we make such a claim?
We re-create the curriculum that dominated schools in America for 200 years, and made America the most extraordinary, prosperous, and admired nation in history.
Compared to colonial Americans, you are an ignorant barbarian. Sure, you know how to use your Blackberry. But bring a 9-year-old into the 21st century from 1776, and the kid would be able to figure out how to use your computer and television remote control as fast as you did. But Colonial Americans could read the Federalist Papers and debate the issues intelligently. You can't. They had the moral courage to fight against tyranny. You don't.
- The human beings that settled the New World were the same species of humans that remained in Europe.
- But America became extraordinary,
while Europe stagnated under monarchy and socialism.
- The difference was ideas.
- Ideas have consequences.
- These ideas -- ideas of political liberty and personal morality -- have been erased from American schools.
- And now America is stagnating under European-style socialism.
Ideas have consequences in your life.
In 1776, America had become the pinnacle of Christian Civilization, also called "Western Civilization."
Personally, Americans were hard-working and charitable.
Politically, Americans perceived that the initiation of force by government was inconsistent with Christianity.
America was a land of "Liberty Under God," a "City upon a Hill," a light to the world.
The Internet gives an adult living in 2010 the capability of re-creating an American colonial education in just one year. If you can muster the moral courage to give up one hour of the mainstream media and replace it with TheLifelongLearner Program, you can begin acting as your own "City upon a Hill" and influence your culture -- from your neighborhood, to our nation, to our globe.
