Their aim is to teach students what to think, and not how to think. So far I have showed you a lot of clips from the last couple weeks where teachers and schools are putting the entire student body through a bunch of extreme experiences concerning even the mention of the word gun, or biting a pop tart into a gun shape, or pointing a pencil at someone and saying "bang bang", or wearing a second amendment t-shirt. All of those children are learning to be scared of something that is their constitutional right. Those are all great examples of how fear is used to control.
I agree and yet I disagree at the same time.
I really agree with the first sentence. I'm not sure that the gun case is an example. I think it is more of an outward manifestation of an inward political bias. Let's back up a few years before the incident last year. I knew someone who was a teacher. There was an incident with a student and a gun. Being a Vietnam Vet he handled the situation and relieved the student of the gun without incident. The faculty was happy and curious at how well he had handled the situation. He mentioned his experience as a Vietnam Vet. From that moment on (because he didn't discuss it before) they effectively effectively blacklisted him. Why? Because they basically feared him (outward manifestation of an inward bias). It wasn't a part of some complex plot, because he was neither pushing an agenda nor resisting one, but a pure example of an irrational fear.
So it's not really a case of a deliberate attempt to isolate boys from traditional mock combat play (in this case through mock guns) but a real inward irrational fear of "gun nuts."
The second amendment t-shirt is more complex, as that is an attempt to "control" speech. But then again, I used to go to Catholic Schools with uniforms.
