to Ban Public Schools?
By Servando Gonzalez
March 6, 2018.
When the sage points at the moon the fool looks
at the finger.
— Zen koan.
Jeff Cooper, a true philosopher of firearms who,
among his many achievements in the field, created the color-coded
levels of readiness, wrote that men fight with their minds; the
tools they use are irrelevant. Rapper Ice-T, who most likely never
heard about Cooper, reached the same conclusion when he wrote
the lyrics, “My lethal weapon in my mind.”
Nevertheless, the overall reaction of the CFR-controlled presstitutes,
brainwashed high school teenagers, bleeding heart liberals and
corrupt politicians after the recent shooting at a school in Florida,
shows that the anti-gun lobby is focused only in the tools the
killers had in their hands, but doesn’t care much about
what they had in their minds when they were mercilessly killing
According to this twisted reasoning, a fast remedy to stop school
killings would be to totally ban the sale and possession of M-15
rifles. Following their twisted logic, somebody may suggest that,
in coming shootings, the cold-blooded assassins should use only
shotguns or AK-47s.
Not surprisingly, not only “progressive” liberals
have adopted this wrong point of view, but also some “conservative”
Republicans are not alien to this erroneous reasoning. Proof of
this is that the Transportation Security Administration, one of
the most useless organizations ever created by man, is totally
focused in detecting the tools terrorists have previously used.
I have seen a video in which a TSA female employee, wearing Muslim
garb, is giving a thorough pat down to a Catholic nun. On the
other hand, security officers of El-Al, the Israeli airline, are
focused mostly not on checking what the travelers carry in their
bags, but what they carry in their minds, and their record shows
that this approach has been highly successful.
In the mid-1980s, somebody coined the phrase “going postal”
as part of the American English slang. It meant becoming extremely
and uncontrollably angry, often to the point of violence, and
usually in a workplace environment. The expression derived from
a series of incidents from 1986 onward in which USPS workers shot
and killed managers, fellow workers, members of the police and
general public in U.S. Post Offices. Between 1970 and 1997, current
or former postal employees in at least 20 incidents of workplace
rage killed more than 40 people.
Some years later somebody made the connection and found out that
most of these killers were Vietnam vets, whom the USPS had given
preference in hiring. Most of them suffered from Post-Traumatic
Stress Disorder, a mental health condition triggered by terrifying
events such as wars, causing flashbacks, nightmares and severe
anxiety. But, one may ask, the current killings have been committed
by students, not by war vets affected by PTSD. These students
have never been in war. This doesn’t make any sense.
Well, if you think so, you are wrong.
For the past thirty years there has been a war going on against
the American people. But this not a conventional war waged with
tanks, battleships and planes on conventional battlefields —at
least not yet. It is a secret, insidious type of war whose battleground
is the people’s minds. Its main weapons are propaganda and
mass brainwashing by disinformation, cunning, deception and lies
in a large scale not used against the people of any nation since
Nazi Germany. Though important, however, those elements are just
part of a series of carefully planned and executed long and short-term
psychological warfare operations. In synthesis, it is a war in
the people’s minds, a psychological war —a PsyWar
— one of whose main battlefields is the public schools,
and our children have been the main casualties in this war.
So, instead of focusing on the tools — the current focus
of hatred in on the AR-15 semi-auto rifle — why nobody,
except President Trump, has mentioned the problem of mental health?
Why ha nobody in the mainstream press called for a rigorous, in-depth
study of what has been on the minds of the killers. Even more
important, why gave most of these killings happened in public
schools, to the point that we should coin a new phrase to describe
it: “going educational.”
The answer is because focusing on the killers’ minds would
reveal the true cause of the shootings; something the anti-gun
lobby doesn’t want us to know.
In 1999 I wrote an article I titled “The Real Makers of
Lethal Weapons Are In Our Schools,” that was published in
an Australian newspaper Eight years later WorldNetDaily
reproduced it, adding, “Editor’s note: This prophetic
commentary was first published in June 1999. There is not much
I can add to my 1999 article, but it is a very long one, so I
am going to reproduce just parts of it below and add a few new
comments at the end.
The Real Makers of Lethal Weapons Are In Our Schools
Soon after the school shootings at Jonesboro, Ark., and Springfield,
Ore., were reported, the American media began rounding up the
usual suspects: guns and, by implication, the National Rifle Association
and the parents who allow their children access to guns. Since
then, school killings in the U.S. have become a common occurrence,
and both the national media and gun control advocates keep chanting
the mantra that access to firearms is the main reason for the
killings. The killings, they claim, are a reminder of the terrible
price we all pay for the lax gun control laws in our nation.
It is interesting to notice, however, that the self-appointed
“gun control advocates” are actually “selective
gun control advocates.” When they talk about gun control,
they don’t have in mind controlling the guns in the hands
of the government, only in the hands of private citizens. In a
country where, in a growing fascistic trend, extensive use of
all types of guns among government agencies is mushrooming —
even UC Berkeley proudly announced the creation of its own SWAT
team — none of the gun control advocates seem to care about
veritable private armies controlled by the BATF, IRS, INS, FBI
and other federal agencies. The purpose for this selective gun
control, they claim, is to curb criminality.
But, as history has proved over and over, criminals don’t
destroy countries, governments do. Nazi Germany, Soviet Russia,
Communist China and Castro’s Cuba, just to mention a few,
are countries where stiff gun control laws were enacted. Yet,
as soon as the gun control laws were in place, people were to
witness thousands of their fellow citizens killed by guns, in
the hands of government thugs. In fact, the disarmament of its
citizens was a precondition for allowing their governments to
kill them with total impunity.
The inconsistency of the gun grabbers’ reasoning is amazing.
The ones that now are blaming guns for the schools killings are
the same people that, faced with increasing teenage sex, decided
to provide high-school kids with free condoms because, they reasoned,
kids were going to continue having sex anyway. These are the same
people that, faced with extended drug usage, decided to provide
addicts with free hypodermic needles because, they reasoned, addicts
were going to continue using drugs anyway. Now, faced with kids
killing other kids, I expected from them nothing less than a plan
to provide the killers with free guns because, I reason, these
kids are going to keep killing people anyway. But no. Because
a few kids are killing people with guns, the coercive utopians
want to deprive all American citizens from their guns. A very
interesting example of convoluted reasoning.
The weak side of the gun control theory is that the famous oxymoron
“guns don’t kill people, people do” is absolutely
true. Evidence shows that, though many American citizens keep
guns at home, they don’t use them to kill their fellow citizens,
nor do their kids go to school to shoot at their classmates. On
the contrary, most legal gun owners believe that human life is
sacred and have passed this belief on to their children.
Once more: Guns don’t kill people
In early 1981, during my first weekend after moving to Zurich,
Switzerland, I went with my family to the main railroad station
and experienced a cultural shock. Dozens of civilians, carrying
powerful rifles and plenty of magazines full of ammo, were getting
in and out of the trains, and nobody seemed to pay any attention
to it. Later, somebody explained to me that they were reservists
going to their monthly military training. Then I learned that
most able Swiss citizens keep at home a powerful military rifle
and several hundred rounds of ammunition. Curiously, I have never
heard of a Swiss schoolboy using his father’s rifle to kill
The amazing fact is that guns, even guns in the hands of trained
soldiers in the battlefield, don’t kill people. While studying
the effectiveness of American soldiers during World War II, U.S.
Army Brig. Gen. S. L. A. Marshall discovered the incredible fact
that less than 20 to 25 percent actually took part in battle using
their weapons. After interviewing thousands of soldiers, even
soldiers who had been in close combat with German or Japanese
troops, Marshall and his team of researchers found that 75 to
80 percent of riflemen did not fire their weapons at the enemy,
even to save their lives and the lives of their friends. Some
of them prefer to die rather than kill the enemy. The reason for
this was the strong inborn resistance of human beings to kill
a fellow man. Further research revealed that the rate of soldiers
firing at the enemy during the Civil War was very similar.
As a result of Marshall’s findings, Army psychologists created
new training methods, and they were applied in the soldier’s
training. The results were impressive. During the Korean War,
the rate of soldiers firing their weapons in combat rose to 55
percent, and it reached 90 to 95 percent during the Vietnam War.
What were these methods? Mostly brainwashing the soldiers to believe
that what they were killing were not human beings, but pieces
of inanimate matter. This was obtained through a process called
manufactured contempt, which includes the dehumanizing of the
enemy. Another factor that contributed to the high rate of killing
in Vietnam was the extended administration of tranquilizing drugs
to the soldiers. Does this ring any bells?
A few years ago, when Florida’s Dade County passed a law
allowing citizens to carry concealed weapons, the selective gun
control advocates predicted mayhem and civil chaos. But their
predictions never materialized, and criminal activity involving
guns actually dropped considerably. In Israel’s kibbutzes,
assault rifles and submachine guns are always kept fully loaded
and at hand. I have never heard of any Israeli child using his
parent’s guns to kill classmates.
When somebody uses a car to kill a person nobody blames the car,
but the driver. Why, then, when somebody uses a gun to kill a
person we always hear the gun control advocates raising their
voices? Neither guns nor cars kill people; people do. As the lyrics
of a well-known rap song repeats over and over, the most lethal
weapon is your mind. Researchers at the North Carolina Center
for the Prevention of School Violence seem to agree. They believe
that the reason for the current epidemic of school violence has
to do with a change in the student’s thinking. Now, how
did this change in the children’s mind come to be?
Lowering the violence threshold
In an extraordinary book, On Killing: The Psychological Cost
of Learning to Kill in War and Society, author Dave Grossman
took a look at how conditioning soldiers to overcome the instinctive
loathing of killing is the main factor in post-combat stress.
He also shows how by lowering the violence threshold contemporary
society, especially the media, replicates the army’s conditioning
techniques. The result is increased violence in society.
When I was a kid, I was told that human life was sacred because
it was a gift given to man by his Creator. The command “Thou
shall not kill” included your own life; therefore, suicide
was forbidden. Granted, that was a non-scientific fact, just a
belief, but it was accepted by most people as normal, civilized
human behavior. Even at school, where students were supposed to
learn scientific facts, the ones who expressed their belief in
the sanctity of human life were not scorned or harassed. But things
have changed in America, and not for the better.
Instead of the non-scientific belief that life is a gift, now
children are told at public schools the non-scientific belief
that life evolved from a piece or unanimated matter. Day after
day, over and over, teachers hammer in into their student’s
impressionable minds the unscientific belief that, far from being
a miracle, life is just an accident of nature.
There is a practical reason for the teachers’ unscientific
behavior. The coercive utopians have always seen Judeo-Christian
religion as the main obstacle to their plans, so they have been
using Darwin’s theory of evolution as a handy tool in their
battle against religion. Their main goal is to lower the ethical
and moral threshold to brainwash children to accept their views.
The techniques the brainwashers apply to lower the student’s
moral threshold are very sophisticated, some of them closely resembling
psychological operations used by intelligence services all around
the world. For example, most schools have instituted a “pajama
day,” in which students come to school wearing their pajamas.
That seems pretty inoffensive, and no parent would question it.
But the “pajama day” is just the first step for the
creation of the “cross-dressing day,” in which students
come to school dressed as members of the opposite sex. The “cross-dressing
day” is actually a “transvestite day” in disguise.
Its only purpose is to lower the student’s moral threshold
into accepting previously socially unaccepted behavior. After
the “cross-dressing day” has been in practice for
several years in a school, nobody would object if some day a student
decides to come to school every day dressed as a member of the
opposite sex. If somebody raises any questions it would be easy
to dismiss it by alleging the student’s rights and the fact
that everybody does it, at least once a year.
Another common technique successfully applied in some schools
is the showing of films like “Natural Born Killers,”
and the use of death and suicide rehearsing, in which student’s
write suicide notes, visit mortuaries, and even lay in coffins
to feel the experience of death. This is carefully planned psychological
conditioning to lower the moral threshold of the students to accept
violence and death as natural. Death and suicide has become a
common subject in “progressive” school curricula.
In their ferocious fight against religion, the social engineers
have been successful in the de facto banning of Judeo-Christian
ethics from our public schools, and a cornerstone of Judeo-Christian
ethics is the belief in the sanctity of human life. The result,
as we now see, is probably not exactly what they had in mind.
But don’t let their anti-gun yelling and shouting confuse
you. They are not that foolish. They know exactly the real source
of the problem, which is not guns or parents’ behavior.
But, unable to publicly accept the blame for their mistake, now
they are blaming us for the results of their gross miscalculation
and, with the help of a corrupt, accomplice media, pulling a victory
out of the jaws of defeat.
Granted, the belief in the sacredness of human life is not a scientific
fact, but, even from just the practical point of civilized life
on this planet, it is a very useful one. Apart from any religious
consideration, it is evident that believing in the sacredness
of human life has a strong redeeming social value. But kids who
come to public schools holding that value are systematically ridiculed
and psychologically harassed. Instead of the Judeo-Christian ethics,
students in our public schools are spoon-fed with situational
ethics: “If you feel good doing it, then it is OK. Do it.”
Therefore, if you feel good lying, stealing, having sex, particularly
homosexual sex, or taking drugs, then it is OK. Do it. But, in
their rush to lower the moral threshold to gain acceptance for
their behavior, they forgot the ubiquitous law of unintended consequences.
The coercive utopians apparently failed to realize that they were
opening a Pandora’s box – and we are paying for their
The fascist social engineers are masters in semantic deception,
which in plain English means using a fancy, misleading term to
name an activity quite different from the one the name suggests.
So, they created outcome-based education, constructivism, block
scheduling, site-based management, team teaching, Socratic dialogue,
holistic grading, and the rest of the tools that, allegedly, were
going to improve our system of education. The reality is that
all of these supposedly educational techniques are just tricks
created to be used as a smoke screen for covering their actual
indoctrination and brainwashing activities. The fact that they
have been acting for so many years with total impunity has convinced
them of their cleverness and our stupidity.
Using the tricks of their trade, the social engineers entrenched
in our public schools have been working hard brainwashing the
students behind their parents’ backs. To reach their goal
they use techniques that range from proven methods of psychological
brainwashing to the administration of psychogenic drugs. You’ll
be surprised to know the number of students who are taking drugs
administered by the school’s nurses, allegedly because they
suffer from “attention deficit/hyperactive disorder.”
Prozac and Ritalin, some of the drugs of choice, are known for
their wide range of side effects.
The main effort of the social engineers entrenched in our schools
is directed at modifying the students’ behavior into accepting,
among others, the belief that human beings are just pieces of
highly evolved matter. Now, if one of these pieces of evolved
matter has something you want, why not destroy it? If some of
those pieces of evolved matter hurt your feelings or do something
you don’t like, why not get rid of them?
The cardinal principle of situational ethics, as currently taught
in our public schools, is that if you feel good doing something,
then there’s no reason for not doing it. Creating a high
sense of self-esteem, the social engineers claim, is paramount,
and doing whatever makes you feel good is the key for reaching
a high sense of self-esteem. Some witnesses testify that the students
who went on a killing rampage in their schools were feeling real
good. I bet that, at least while they were pulling the trigger
shooting at unarmed victims, the schoolboys turned into assassins
were enjoying a very high feeling of superiority and strong self-esteem.
Authors H. Stream and L. Freeman, in an insightful book called
Our Wish to Kill, probed America’s homicidal obsession,
examining everything from “wilding” incidents to serial
killers. They conclude that actual killings are simply tangible
expressions of the hundreds of thousands of murders that are fantasized
in our minds but never committed. One of the functions of the
Judeo-Christian and other religions, at some time shared by schools,
is to raise the threshold of violence, making it morally unacceptable
and, therefore, difficult to commit. Lately, however, schools
have joined the media in pushing down the violence threshold,
making it morally easier and simpler to commit.
After the massacre at Columbine High School in Littleton, Colo.,
President Bill Clinton was busy throwing a smoke screen on the
true causes of the killings. According to Clinton, the responsible
for the creation of the monsters next door were guns and parents.
But Bill Clinton, a natural born liar, knows better. The roots
of this recent trend in school violence are to be found in the
Arkansas brainwashing labs, whose three main elements, AGATE (Arkansas
Gifted and Talented Education), the Arkansas Governor’s
School and the Arkansas School of Mathematics and Science, are
the aberrant creation of none others than Bill and Hillary Clinton.
It was there, and not at the student’s homes, where the
seed of violence and death was planted for the first time in the
minds of impressionable children. It was there where the brainwashing
techniques were first tested and fine-tuned for many years. Now,
the brainwashers are pushing for its nationwide implementation.
The national media, Hollywood, computer game designers, death
metal bands, television and, particularly, “progressive”
teachers working hard at brainwashing our children at the public
schools are the true makers of lethal weapons. They are the ones
who have created the abominable monsters who unmercifully kill
other human beings. Sometimes the monsters use guns, though knives,
poison, explosives, baseball bats and rocks have also been used
as murder tools.
The media, Hollywood, computer game designers, death metal bands,
television, teachers, and not the parents and gun makers as some
claim, are the ones who are poisoning our children’s brains,
turning their minds into lethal weapons. Now, because they have
absolutely no decency, the makers of lethal weapons want to use
the problem they have created to carry out two of their cherished
agendas: taking guns away from the citizen’s hands and curtailing
parents’ rights even more.
Far from disappearing, school violence in America will keep rising,
and this is just the beginning. The nationwide implementation
through Goals 2000 and other federal government programs of the
brainwashing techniques tested in Arkansas and now successfully
applied in many public schools will bring momentous consequences
to the future of this nation.
Well, close to twenty years have passed since I wrote this article,
but still there is not much I can add to it. As I predicted, far
from disappearing, shootings at public schools have kept rising
and the people in charge have done nothing to stop it. The only
thing I would like to advise Americans is, first, to begin using
the term “going educational” when referring to this
type of incidents and, second, to fight hard to eliminate the
main source of the problem, that is not guns but government-controlled
1. Shotguns are so deadly that for many years the Geneva Convention
banned its use in war. Moreover, some people ignore that war rifles
use ammo designed not to kill but to main, because a wounded soldier
creates more logistic and morale problems to the enemy than a
dead one, but the Soviet AK-47 uses ammo designed to kill. On
the other hand, when you are shooting a defenseless target such
as school children, even a sling shot can prove lethal.
2. Well, if its true purpose was to change Americans into obedient
sheeple I have to recognize that the TSA has been very successful.
There is a new generation of Americans that can’t conceive
boarding a plane without taking off their shoes, passing through
an X-ray machines or being groped by a pervert.

6. I don’t discard up front some conspiracy theories which,
though apparently farfetched, are the only ones that can explain
some apparently unexplainable facts surrounding these incidents
— such as the fact that in most of the school shootings
the students had been told in advance that there was an active
shooting exercise planned for that day. By the way, on 9-11-2001,
Air Force pilots were told not to follow procedures to stop unresponsive
planes because there was a terrorist attack exercise planned for
that day. Rings any bells?
7. If you think that banning public schools is a extreme measure
I would like to remind you that, according to what Karl Marx and
Friedrich Engels wrote in The Communist Manifesto, among
the ten key measures that must be taken to implement communism
in a country, a cardinal one is “Free education for all
children in pubic schools.” Karl Marx and Freidrich Engerls,
The Communist Manifesto (Harmondsworth, England: Penguin
Books, 1967), p. 105. Other necessary requirements were “A
heavy progressive or graduated income tax,” as well as “Centralization
of credit in the hands of the State, by means of a national bank,”
an organization we in America call the Federal Reserve Bank. But
discussing this would take another whole article.
