    Of course Mao is a progressive hero. He did more to fight overpopulation that any other world leader in recent history.

    The only quote from Mao that I agree with is, “Every Communist must grasp the truth – political power grows out of the barrel of a gun”. That’s why I keep in mind two other quotes: “To disarm the people… was the best and most effectual way to enslave them.” from George Mason, and “When only cops have guns, it’s called a “police state”…Love your country, but never trust its government.” from Robert A. Heinlein

    Tell me again how the “Progressives” aren’t really communists.

    Unfortunately they left out the next part of the quote which goes “And if you don’t I’ll murder 40 million of you.”

    Joe, unlike communists, progressives are not tied down to any so called scientific economic or historical theory. They are for whatever seems good to them at the moment and this is constantly changing. Anyone who is not nimble enough to keep up with their evolving truth is a fascist.

    First generation communist leaders tended to be narrow minded intellectuals; progressive leaders tend to be over-educated, over-emotional mutton heads.

    Look at the philosophy of John Dewy, one of the founder of progressive education

    Introduction to John Dewey’s Philosophy of Education

    Summary of Dewey’s Philosophy of Instrumentalism

    1. Dewey’s philosophy was called instrumentalism (related to pragmatism).
    2. Instrumentalism believes that truth is an instrument used by human beings to solve their problems.
    3. Since problems change, then so must truth.
    4. Since problems change, truth changes, and therefore there can be no eternal reality.

    They avoid quotes from Hitler. Give them a few more years and they’ll include those too….they’ll place them right beside those of Charles Manson and Ted Bundy.

    Why in the world do they put this crap out when they fully know that it will cause a negative reaction?

    Hey, I think I just answered my own question before I got done asking it.

    Wait… did anyone notice the paragraph above that? It says, “Public school students in 28 states scored higher than their peers in the nation…”

    Given population disparities between states, isn’t that like saying “half the students scored in the top half”??

    Tell me, Mao — how do you pour water from an empty pitcher?

    SiGraybeard – that *cough* startling statistic appears to be part of the “satiable in learning” thang. IOW: voluntary dumbassery.

    I’ll bet the jackass who posted that doesn’t even know who Mao was.

    Hitler quotes are disguised as Obama’s.
