Re: “Social justice as student indoctrination,” B.C. Views, The Leader, Oct. 22.
Great column. I consider this one as one of the most important ones that Tom Fletcher has written, alongside the one about “science gives way to superstition”.
If the B.C. Teachers’ Federation advocates a collectivist ideology such as socialism, the chances of saving our children from the influence of dangerous, very militant, egalitarian philosophy are slim.
History proves that people with Marxist/socialist ideas tortured and killed tens of millions of people in the 20th century and continue to spread injustice, hunger and death in countries like China, North Korea and in much of central American and African countries.
People are risking their lives and careers in order to come to Canada and escape the grinding poverty and psychopathic socialist leaders are discovering that many Canadians are actively seeking to install the same socialist policies that ruined their old countries.
The question we need to ask is: Do we want our children to build a strong and free nation which is an example for the rest of the (bankrupt) world, or feed the unsustainable appetite of the welfare state and crony politicians who exist, because the access to virtually unlimited taxpayer money is just a “favour” away?
BCTF is playing with fire when they teach our children to uphold the false axioms of failed and dangerous political ideology, thus they are doing precisely the opposite things from what we are paying them to do.
I my opinion, public institutions shouldn’t be able to unionize at all, because of easy access to politicians with “connections” who are eager to subsidize whatever and whoever (with taxpayer money) in exchange for votes or favours.
Under the banner of “subsidized education for all,” BCTF ruins Canada’s future by legally choking off the competition in the education market, thus lowering the quality of education and increasing the overall cost at taxpayers’ expense – just like their equivalents ruined Greece, Italy, Portugal, Russia, North Korea and countless other “people’s states” all over the globe.
