Parents are now sending their kids to Russian math camps.
These math camps are based upon a Russian method of teaching math that was developed during the Cold War.
Supposedly they teach critical thinking.
Parents are even hiring personal tutors so that they can give their kids a leg up in getting into an Ivy League school.
Talk about poor thinking and wrong values.
This is a real problem for us. We have parents who are engineering their kids to work as adults when they might be better off outside being kids playing games like hide and seek. There is a lot of value in allowing kids to be kids.
Okay, so you have engineered your child to become a de-socialized mathematics automaton. And how will that help the rest of us?
Your child will do okay. Your child will join the club and be able to make hundreds of millions of dollars, maybe. But how does that help the homeless which have grown ever greater in numbers since the Ivy League has put its death grip upon the nation.
There was a time in the United States when not all your institutions were dominated by Harvard and the Ivy League. You can go back 75 years and see a time in the Supreme Court when justices came from regular schools. Nowadays, almost all your Supreme Court justices come from the Ivy League.
How about President of the United States? Sure, you may get an anomaly from time to time like Biden, but the recent trend is for them to come from the Ivy League. Is the United States better off because of it?
Most of your major corporations have leaders who now come extensively from the Ivy League. And yet, America is being torn apart by the large corporations.
Major corporations and their leaders, perhaps educated in Russian math camps where they teach critical thinking, now mindlessly march to the drum beat of critical race theory, and the need to conquer Russian aggression in Ukraine.
They even take the time out of their busy day to place a message of support for Ukraine on their various websites. Really? I was looking to purchase some pralines.
So how does an Ivy League education help the rest of us?
And it hasn’t.
In the old days, not too long ago, it was the individual that counted. Nowadays, there is less emphasis on the individual and more emphasis on the institution from which you graduate. That is not a good thing.
In fact it’s a bad idea.
It’s a bad idea because its graduates are less inclined to be beholden to their own personal morality than to the ideology of the Ivy League institutions, which are most decidedly elitist.
What we need as leaders are people who have a sense of humanity and normality, who are connected to the rest of us. When they are connected to us, and when they have a sense of humanity, then they can more easily solve the problems that regular people have.
What we are getting now are de-socialized automatons who look after their own personal wealth first. They view themselves as a cut above the rest of us. They have lost connectivity with us, and the results are what you see before you.
Abounding homelessness, nonstop war, nonstop illegal immigration, drug abuse out of control, complete destruction of the black community in the inner city, gang violence on demand, the lack of a comprehensive, affordable healthcare financing mechanism for regular working people.
This is what you get when you send your eight year old to math camps instead of letting them socialize and play hide and seek like a normal kid.
Hey, but it’s okay.
Their politically correct parents are carful to point out that their Russian math camps have nothing to do with the evil Vladimir Putin and the Russian aggression in Ukraine.
Well … as long as you denounce Putin.
