There are some who do not align themselves with America or its illusions... We still believe we CAN make a choice rather than not having any choices at all. A true slave never believes in freedom because they do not have the courage to feel freedom in their soul. I am not a robot!

In Cairo the people who had no future protested for change. In Wisconsin people with job security who do not want change - they are the tools of the elite. They indoctrinate my children, they teach us what to think and how to think - FUCK EM!

I find it sad that your ignorance is so blatant. I am tired of people blaming others for their lack of ability to think. Have you ever considered that it is a parent's job to teach his or her child how to think for themselves. Why are you relying on a system of education to teach your children how to think? You state that teachers are tools of the elite but how are you any different? A person teaches them self what and how and when to think. Not a system funded by government and supported by the public.

Instead of complaining about teachers and what you perceive as their unwillingness to promote change, why don't you do some research into the ethics and code of conduct expected of a teacher. There are many who want change just as much as you do, but cannot speak for fear of losing their job. For those that want change, it is not a loss of money that is at stake but the disappearance of an individual who genuinely cares that your child has a safe place to expand their mind. Look inside the schools at individual teachers. A number will play the system because their laziness allows them. Others will show you that their are those who continue to believe that youth have a right to be informed and speak their opinion.

These believers in your children are as frustrated with you that you sit and complain about the restrictions placed on the curriculum (i.e. framework of thought concocted by the government) without actually taking any responsibility. Where are the parent or public interest groups in protesting that teachers be able to speak openly about what is happening in the schools? Where is the public in demanding more accountability in educators?

My last question regards the issue of education and its importance to a society. You point out that those in Cairo who have nothing fight for opportunity. I wonder how they would feel reading your comment - and others like yours - as a reflection of how little value our side of the world places on education - something I'm sure many in the developing world would die to have. Maybe it's time we stopped blaming others when our institutions of thought are being limited. Maybe it's time we realized that there are those on both sides of an argument who believe in the same ideals and strength will come when they learn to unite against those who divide us...
