I asked my doctor what he thought of President Obama’s proposals for health insurance.
The doctor quietly remarked: “Obama’s saying, this is what’s good for you -- whether you like it or not.”
Hold that thought! It’s everything you need to know about American education for the past one hundred years.
The far-left likes to devise abstract answers, and then force them on the public. That sensibility is at odds with American democracy. It certainly wasn’t common in American education...until John Dewey and his progressive educators cracked open a nasty can of worms.
I immediately wrote down the doctor's remark (that was all he said), and got a column out of it.
Education or everyday politics, contempt is the killer.
