    We’re having broadband issues so I only saw about a minutes worth, but that was enough.
    When our son was young we got him one of them ant farm deals, remember them? After a couple weeks you can see all the tunnels, streets, etc., with busy little ants doing their little ant thing and nothing more. The cities look like ant farms with small minded humans doing small minded things, like torturing each other in every way imaginable.

    I never lived in urbania but lived much of my life in suburbania. But I couldn’t put up with it any more and escaped. Looking out the bathroom window on the side of our house after the morning shower and just 20 feet away was the neighbor looking out his bathroom window at me. TWENTY DAM FEET! Jeezis cryste. I can piss that far, almost. (after 4 tall ones) No way can I ever go back to that sort of existence and all of the baggage it entails. Hell, it’s about 40′ from our house to my office/workshop, and I make that short trek maybe 8-10 times a day. But 20′ to the neighbors crib? I shudder to think. I also think about the long life exposure to a mindset that claims that sort of thing is normal and/or good. It is not. I can’t think of one good reason to live in suburbia or urbania. If I lived in the city I’d be as nervous as a long tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs, all the time. I imagine my life expectancy would bottom out too.

    I have no sympathy for people that live in the cities, just pity.

    @Ghost, this story of a famous experiment with crowding rats may interest you:

    The difference between Ratopians and inner city America is that the rats did not have a choice to live in that situation. The denizens of the inner city do. The rats are driven crazy by their environment. The inner city folks decide to live there because they are already crazy. They want that environment.

    What’s different?

    I recently observed a middle school (in the projects) algebra class. All Afro-Americans and one girl from Jamaica. She was the only one who knew what the teacher was talking about, the only one who worked along with the teacher, the only one who cared about her appearance.

    The rest jive talked and challenged each other the whole time.

    Dressed like they lived in a dumpster.

    Not the least interested.

    No thoughts of the future except getting a drank.

    They know they are taken care of by the taken-for-granted welfare system that serves all their wants.

    I’ve been to hundreds of classrooms in dozens of schools, with names such as Dr. Issac Smollett School of Engineering, or Chestnut Hill School for the Arts, where 20% of third graders read and do arithmetic proficiently. The names—wishful thinking, delusional, or something (!) that makes teachers feel good about where they are—till school opens.

    What stands out in middle and high school classrooms filled with ghetto Afros, are the smell of rancid grease, nasty hair extensions, enormous asses, hideous voices, menace, continuous movement and disruption, and a sense that most students are barely sentient and not capable of logical thinking.

    “Here are four examples of granite. Look, they all have quartz, feldspar, and mica. Just with different colors. Look at sample five. Is it granite?…. How would you figure it out?”

    Are you kidding? They would instantly make fun of the teacher or start throwing paper wads at each other.

    Do they know how dumb they are?

    Basically, ill-supervised psycho wards.

    The most stupid and useless high schoolers would be just as happy in a locked ward. Three meals a day; things to fight over; things to break or steal, authority to mock; and nothing that challenges the intellect.

    They live in another “province of meaning.” You can see it when they hit grade four. They start off cute and happy and sharp in kindergarten.

    “Hey, Mister, are you Santa Claus.”

    “Naw. Santa is my bother. I’m Fred Claus. I make the toys. Santa just flies around.”

    “Hey, are you kidding me?”

    “Nope!”

    Kid walks away and says to his pal, “Yup, he’s Santa Claus, alright.”

    By the end of grade 3, they can’t read, have no idea how to do math more complex than 2-digit multiplication, are sullen, look traumatized, and ready to fight. Except for a rare few (who remain sharp, sociable, and friendly—especially Hispanics and Black kids from religious families), the rest have family lives that would (and do) drive them mad. Constant yelling, threats, smacks upside the head, no fathers, a new “uncle” every month, violence outside and inside, sexual abuse, continual turmoil and crises, and fast food.

    If it were me, I’d rather be chopping cotton or working the tobacco fields.

    “Barbarianism is the natural state of mankind. Civilization is unnatural. It is the whim of circumstance. And barbarianism must ultimately triumph”
    ― Robert E. Howard

    Civilization takes a lot of work, barbarianism is easy. If they work or not, if they study or not, if they behave or not; we won’t let them starve, we won’t let them be without shelter, we won’t drive them out or put them to death.
    Barbarianism must ultimately triumph.

    It IS possible to undo the damage of ghetto culture and pathological families—in the same way that good foster homes or adoptions might undo the damage of a rotten family.

    If done early enough.

    I mean schools that are in many ways like military training—basic training (kindergarten and grader 1), advanced infantry training (grades 2 and up).

    Teachers are like drill sergeants, though slightly more tender. Instead of “You’re not as stupid as you look, de Boyle”), it’s “Excellent work, Isaiah. You got what it takes.”

    Uniforms.
    Ceremonies.
    Frequent formations with the company commander. “We are kicking butt, people. We will be the highest ranked school in the county. You WILL

    Followed by the Assistant Principle (Sergeant Major).
    “You heard what Captain Danielson said! Now get back to class and KILL some math problems.”

    No, childish point systems. Instead, approval hard won from the teacher and the class.

    And instruction so well designed that most everyone learns.

    I worked with 15 schools in Wilmington, nc. After two years of DI, the percentage of kids passing the state reading test went from 40 to high 80s.

    Everyone was happy.
    Two years later, NEW principals got rid of DI.
    It was not their “philosophy.”
    Scores tanked.
    Ed schools are THE enemy of poor kids. The ‘progressives’ are the dumbest people you’ve ever seen.
    They hate DI and love Inquiry. They are too dumb to figure out that you use DI to teach the basics (attention, focus, cooperation, inductive reasoning, language, reading, math, science), and then kids can USE what they just learned to do “inquiry” projects (studying a mountain range).

    Use this.

    The comments above reflect the truth of our parasitic black citizens but I’m afraid we are well and truly fucked because they are here to stay, their objective is to wipe Whitey from the map and establish a modern and updated version of Negroland which won’t be any different from that in which their ancestors lived.

    America was a grand experiment and it would have worked too, had negros never been permitted entry.

    Lance,
    I served for many years as an elementary school teacher in a small urban school district. Out of frustration, a few of us learned a phonetic language arts program. It worked so well, even the parents noticed. It only lasted a short time. In order to keep receiving government money, the district had to adopt a government-approved, big text book company created, “data driven,” “evidence based” reading program, and everyone had to use it. No deviation allowed. The results were predictable. DI, Core Knowledge, any other program that actually teaches children when used by a competent teacher, will never be allowed in the public schools.

  • ghostsniper August 11, 2020, 10:02 AM

    “…when used by a competent teacher…”
    ==========
    This thing is now in at least it’s 3rd generation so finding what you said is almost impossible.
    They simply don’t exist.

    The overall problem is lazy assed parents.
    They push the responsibility of their charges off on others and don’t really care about the outcome.
    Oh, they may whine and wail and stomp their feets and they may even gather together time to time to make their voices heard but when it comes right down to making it happen they just retreat back to the couch and the cheeze puffs and dancing with the stars.
