Informal fallacies with Dr. Michael Labossiere, Gnostic Media Podcast episode #062
What would happen if everyone in society received an immunization against all of today’s media and political propaganda? Is there a simple, logical process to arm ourselves against such attempts at mind manipulation and control? What if you had the ability to quickly and easily break down words and sentences to identify lies and untruths and propaganda? What do grammar and rhetoric have to do with logic and critical thinking, or, for that matter, marketing, PR and propaganda spin, and more importantly, exactly how can they help you?

John Taylor Gatto interview on Gnostic Media – Another Brick in the Wall, Part 1
Probably the most famous school teacher in the world, John Taylor Gatto was New York State teacher of the year when he quit on the OP Ed page of the Wall Street Journal in 1991. John Taylor Gatto climaxed his teaching career as New York State Teacher of the Year after being named New York City Teacher of the Year on three occasions. He quit teaching on the OP ED page of the Wall Street Journal in 1991 while still New York State Teacher of the Year, claiming that he was no longer willing to hurt children.
We ask some important questions: Is there a relationship between eugenics, mind control and compulsory education? Is compulsory education good for anyone and what are the negative effects of our “modern” education system? Where did our education system originate, and by whom? What’s happened to our educational system since the 1800s? Has there been an intentional effort by the elites and government to dumb us down? What do compulsory education and Pavlov’s dogs have in common? Are children better off working, or being in school? To answer these questions, we first have to reach the foundation of our education system. Continuing our education on the Trivium method, this is one of the most important and powerful interviews to date
