Hello,



Critical thinkers such as Lenin, Stalin, Mao and Pol pot. Hummm...

Uh, no.


Like Amcolph said, it's a process, not content.


The process I'm talking about would be applied to the war propaganda put out by the gentlemen you mention as well as that of the capitalist powers.


It's a democratic thing. You wouldn't understand.

It's rare that it happens, but I agree with Amcolph and CB on the issue of "HOTS." It's a teaching method. Could it be abused? Absolutely, but then so can any other teaching method so I see no reason to discard it out of hand.

So, "critical thinking" turns out to be a code word for liberal brainwashing of our kids.  And of course, no critical thinking on the part of those who buy into it, who think it fine to propagandize our children.




Hogwash.  HOTS is method, not content.



 





HOTS is method .. when taught by Conservatives .... HOTS is brainwashing when taught by high and mighty Liberals who wish to rule the world and control "behavior".  Focus on that word Amcoph .. behavior .. that is what was written in the opposition letter regarding HOTS.


That wasn't there just because some lunatic decided to put it there.

So you feel free to rant like that, but when I suggest that lurking amongst Conservatives might be individuals capable of contemplating asassination I've gone over the mark?


Bah!


The truth is, Fundamentalists of the Religious Right don't want their kids learning critical thinking skills.  Their doctrine won't stand up to it.

Lot's of mud is going to be slung in this election. I don't really like either candidate. With Obama, it's how fast can we obliterate the economy? With Romny is how slow do we want economic death?


Niether seem like a viable solution...but I'm defineately NOT voting for "Obumny".
