Will only feature actual education, barring extreme circumstances. Stories like this one, about “students” in a third-world county and state going “virtual,” will not cut it. All of these children will be better off away from the “schools,” the longer away the better. The subject school system ranks in the bottom 10% of one of the dullest state’s in the disunion. What, really, is there to lose? And, given that American children account for less than 2% of the student population, there’s the who-really-cares factor. In this sad case, rather than repeat HOMESCHOOL!, let me just advise that electricity, indoor plumbing, and gasoline, while convenient, are not guaranteed.
You may look at the CoroaHoax as a real pandemic and a real problem. If so, then you’re probably upset that US colleges, some of them, have kind of returned to what passed for normal. They’re, honestly, playing football at the expense of the kids’ health and that of all the relatives waiting to get infected at Thanksgiving. If you’re intelligent, you’re probably upset about the sickness theater infecting these schools. Education, already in the backseat, has been placed in the trunk, behind the Corona Kabuki, etc. Either way, the masks are off the fraud of the system.
Read the Bloomberg story. Then consider all the lack of learning, the critical race BS, the massive debts, and more (or less). What is the point?
The Polish Education Option (and More Culture!)
Back to Poland, we go, for a more in-depth look at some ideas and suggestions I thinly addressed a few weeks ago. This is part four in the series.
What I’ve found is amazing and inspiring. First, a word of caution! Always read the fine print (in a language you understand) before leaping to conclusions. I found something called the NAWA “First Choice” Program and initially assumed it applied to all levels of college study in Poland when, in fact, it is graduate-based. I’ll get to that shortly – it’s incredible. And, it’s far from the only option. All you have to do is dig around for what you need or want; today, I’m trying to help move those first few shovel-loads.
And, I have some more good news about the good country in general. A few years ago, under pressure from the usual satanists, the Poles (very slightly) relaxed their ban on infanticide. They realized their mistake and, in a story I saw a month ago, made a move to correct it – and then some. The new law will do three things: (re) ban abortions; terminate pedo-friendly sex ed in primary schools, and; call out the “P” in LGBTP for what it is. This is the beauty of a homogeneous Christian nation. Contrast this to dead Amerika with its million child murders per year, school “hero” lessons about child rapists, and proceeding legalization of child molestation (CA, naturally – look it up).
The best news is that the Poles, being decent, Godly people, do not necessarily need this legislation for themselves. Rather, it is meant to preemptively exclude and criminalize the kinds of trash that intruded upon and then destroyed the American nation.
Poland’s President, Andrzej Duda, recently vowed to defend Poland and the nation’s children and families from the kind of “social experiments” that are found in every grade in your child’s fake Amerikan public school and every Amerikan media second and that have utterly wrecked your nation. He’s 100% serious and backed by a similar percentage of Poles.
“Poland has largely resisted policies of multiculturalism and identity politics followed by other western nations and has blocked EU demands that it take in migrants from Muslim countries. Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawieck previously echoed Duda’s sentiment, encouraging people to have more children while asserting, ‘There is no strong Poland without strong families.’”
Yes! Imagine if your idiot Republicans had done this – done this, not said this – back around 1965. Poland will remain Poland whether the hell the globos like it or not.
Life In Krakow
Poland is full of areas of habitation, from the smallest village to the metropolis of Warsaw. There’s something for everybody of compatible nature and goodwill. None of these towns feature “no-go” zones, as found in places like Paris and every sizable Amerikan city – unless you are a criminal or a communist, in which case the whole nation is a “no-go.”
I think I have found my little mountain town if I were included in this expedition. (Rumors of my seeking emergency political asylum are just plain…). This town will, for now, remain unnamed. All that matters today is that it is roughly an hour and a half away from bustling Krakow. Poland’s second-largest city, formerly home to Pope John Paul II (then Karol Józef Wojtyła), is the one I chose as an example of what awaits our civilization seekers.
Krakow is a city of 800,000 in a metro area of about 2 million. Again, this is me, the recluse, praising a medium-sized city. I can do so because, based on what I’ve found, it’s simply incredible. It’s also extremely low-cost for the type of urban environment it is and for the luxuries it offers. Note: when you’re scouting around for prices, remember several things. Prices are sometimes quoted, at international sites, in dollars. Otherwise, they’re sometimes in euros, and most frequently, in złotys. The rough rule of thumb is that a złoty equals a quarter-dollar or a quarter-euro. Divide by four and see the savings!
Another cool thing I’ve noticed – and I’ve only looked at a few options – is that salaries in Krakow/Poland appear to be quoted AFTER taxes. The upfront cost of Polish taxation might seem steep by Amerikan standards, but it is all upfront, without hidden fees, alternative taxes, regulatory compliance cost factors, competition from cheap, illegal labor, and hideous world-reserve monetary inflation. My estimate is that, overall, the rates are roughly the same. The difference is that the Polish assessment is more honest and the net pay goes further. Hey… Could you please GET OFF ORBITZ for a damned second…
Here follows just a little of what I’ve discovered recently. A really nice apartment in the city center, which is a little island of quaintness, encircled by a moat-like park, in a sea of greater quaintness, may be rented for less than a thousand dollars. Something comparable further out averages around $650. Many of these feature pools, gyms, secured parking, concierge service, and are sometimes furnished. Student apartments – you probably get what you pay for – start around $150 a month. A nice little condo or house, from the near-center out to the pastoral suburbs, can be found for around, just over, or even under $100,000.
Getting around appears to be a pleasant endeavor. Much of the city is walkable or bikeable. A month’s unlimited transit ticket is about $26. If you want a car, they have them all. A Corolla is the same there as here and is priced the same. Jeeps are popular. They have a million-dollar AMG monster lurking in the Mercedes showroom. I did not consult used prices or check to see if they offer ultra-cheap, ultra-small “teenager” city cars as do the French. You can check on that along with motorcycles and scooters – my guess is that they do. By the way, the French offer a class of tiny, inexpensive cars for younger teenagers – age 14 or 15 I think – that is sufficient for getting around, slowly, cheaply, and without the rigors of full licensure. But hey, Amerika, you gots freedom fries, right? The structure of Polish education (see below) is much like the French system – which is several heads and shoulders about that in dead Amerika, even at the public, government level.
I found several cost of living charts and calculators though I choose not to include them. Their prices looked good, in line with what I found on the internet, but their salaries were skewed on the low side. Note: the only salaries I looked at were for teachers (more below). A primary school teacher appears to earn approximately $2,000 per month after taxes. This is sufficient for a very nice living in the city. Contract English teachers (more below) earn less, around $1,300 per month. However, those jobs also offer free accommodations, which renders the net effect of another very nice living.
And, if you like living, I think you’ll like Krakow. Not all corners host a church, museum, or castle, but many do. Parks are ubiquitous. They have an indoor water park and an outdoor version with associated amusements. Both are priced well below DevilMouseLand rates. Malls? They have several, each large, modern, and free of riffraff. “Dumpling” joints are popular, as are most other eateries. These people like bars.
There’s a street near the central plaza with a well-stocked American bookstore – all English titles – which looks nicer than any such store I’ve seen in Amerika in decades. Right next door is one of the nicest cigar shops I have ever seen. Two “brands” – Davidoffs and Cubanos! (I understand the Nicaraguan heavies are making tasty inroads lately. Cigar prices seem to be approximately those of low-tax US States like FLA). Under the cigar lounge hides a five-star French restaurant, home to two-star prices. Across the street is one of those bars. GET OFF ORBITZ!!!
When you’re done with this article, please stay the urge to look at flights and Duck or Start Page around for a while. You’ll like what you see.
There is also an abundant and varied nightlife. It’s a big city. If you’re tempted to go the banal PUA route, then there are copious sites about the “hunting” prospects. For the serious among you, hopefully, all of you, check out what Roosh V. had to say about “game” in Poland when he was unsaved versus what he says now as a Christian.
Teach English (not necessarily in a Polish school either)
I mentioned teaching English as an employed way into Polish life. It’s a very viable option. English is the second language of the country. A third of the population speaks it, with a substantially higher number of young Poles doing so. They need instruction. With moderate training and certification, many of you should qualify for this kind of work. Visit THIS SITE or one like it to get started.
Also, please browse through Australian Phil Forbes recounting of his collected experiences teaching English in Poland. I must advise that I was slightly taken aback by one of his blog entries wherein he questioned some of the inherent values of Polish culture and norms. (Don’t be that kind of visitor!) But, on the whole, I think his insights may help. He even explained, in fairly strong detail, his path to obtaining a Karta Pobytu (“Green Card”) in Poland. It’s not a simple process, though it appears manageable. This should serve as excellent starting advice for anyone considering a move under any circumstances – teaching, learning, working, retiring, etc.
Perhaps his best advice, and that which is applicable across any border(s) is to hire a knowledgeable immigration attorney. In Poland, Forbes recommends Mr. Piotr Sawicki, Esq. of Warsaw. Sawicki speaks fluent English as he previously did time at the University of Florida School of Law. Call him and his staff for more details. Whatever the price, it will be zlotys, euros, or dollars well spent.
Or, Be Taught (at a Polish College)
Please introduce yourselves, young Americans, to Jagiellonian University in Krakow – that’s “Jah-jay-elon-ion” U, I think… This large (43,000+ students) establishment has been in business since 1364(!) and, today, offers programs, graduate and undergraduate, and doctoral, in dozens of fields and specialties. It differs starkly from almost all colleges in the fading empire. It’s affordable: zero tuition for Poles; Amerikan public college “in-state” level tuition for internationals. It’s full of serious students who are capable of learning at an advanced level and proceed to do as such. It is free of political correctness, communism, and associated foolishness. The esteemed Fred Reed did a great job, in way of contrast, by briefly recapping the utter failings of US “schools” in his recent discourse on the decline and fall.
You don’t have to suffer the embarrassment of attending a dead Amerikan “school.” JU is a grand alternative. It is one (of the very best) of hundreds of colleges, universities, and technical schools in Poland.
JU’s programs are too multitudinous to list, however, here is a quick breakdown of some of their graduate humanities offerings:
- Business and Finance
- Comparative Heritage
- European Studies
- Intellectual Property and Technology
- International Relations
- International Security and Development
I thought there was something familiar about all of this. It turns out that the International Relations department works in consortium with the faculty of Matej Bel University, Banska Bystrica, Slovakia. Dr. Ironsides did, in fact, make mention of some joint something or other.
I’ll start with the graduate (second-cycle to the Poles) studies first, as that was where my near SNAFU originated, as mentioned above. It turns out that Poland is looking for intelligent and compatible international students in the nation’s graduate schools. If you’re a US college senior or recent graduate (my condolences), then please check out the almost unbelievable scholarships available via the NAWA, Poland, My First Choice Program(me).
Upfront note: the materials that I have found are all at least one year out of date. I suspect the lack of an update has to do with the Great Hoax of 2020. There’s nothing we can do about that, but keep your hopes up that they will relax and reopen soon. Be ready when and if they do.
What They Say:
“The Poland My First Choice scholarship programme aims to encourage young talented people from the countries listed below to pursue studies at the best Polish HEIs.
The Programme offers an opportunity to pursue full-time second-cycle studies at public and private HEIs on all fields of study offered by institutions offering education at highest level – i.e. those classified to the A and A+ category under the latest parametric evaluation – subordinate to the Minister of Science and Higher Education, with a monthly NAWA scholarship amounting to PLN 2,000 (ca. EUR 460) to cover the living allowance during the period of education in Poland specified in the Regulations. In the case of public HEIs, the Programme also offers an exemption from education fees. The Programme provides the participants with an opportunity to study in Polish or in another language. The Applicants select HEIs and fields of study in which they want to enrol based on the educational offer of Polish higher education institutions and apply for the curriculum of their choice. Final decisions regarding admissions of Applicants and financial conditions of education shall be made by HEIs.
The scholarship offer is addressed to foreigners – the citizens of the following countries: [Follows a list of countries that, upon critical examination, TPC might choose to censor or whitewash for some unknown reason].”
The US is on the list. The programme – British English spelling, there – covers all public schools and many or most privates (to some degree). It is also apparently good for almost all fields of inquiry.
It’s 48-pages of fine print. But, if you’re worried, you do not have to know Polish at this point – though you should rapidly learn it before or after your arrival. The qualification is Polish -or- English proficiency. I assume that having made it this far into the article, you at least read English. You’re halfway there, kids!
Read that – it’s a binding contract – and the rules carefully. You have some serious responsibilities as you receive some serious benefits. In addition to covering the entire tuition at places like JU, they will also give you a living stipend, the amount of which is determined by and between you and them. In other words, this is potentially a completely-paid route into a living civilization. Take advantage and be scrupulous.
Okay, I tuckered out after running through the foregoing. However, I did not neglect the undergraduates among you. If you’re a US high school senior or recent HS grad (my condolences), then look HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, and HERE. YOU’RE WELCOME.
With my (free) prompting and your hard work, the sky really is the limit. Get going today!
Getting There: Alternative Transportation
With this whole series, I sincerely hope there is still time to act. (I’m positive there is). But, right now, with the sky falling, etc., things may get a little harder. If you’re serious about going to Europe, for any reason, then you might want to fly out sooner than later. Rumors swirl that the EU may lock Amerikans out because of the Detrick-Harvard Virus, Hoaxid-19. (See endnote…) In the future, as domestic matters further deteriorate, the lockout may become permanent. Don’t wait until you’re a refugee fleeing war and oppression. Euros, in general, are sick of that kind of visitor as-is, and, as previously noted, Easterns don’t take them anyway. You don’t want them seeing you as someone who screwed up his own country and is only running to theirs to do the same thing. Of course, when the heavy bombings start and they’re shooting down airliners, easy departure will be out of the question. I’d like to say you have through the rest of the decade, but I’m prone to realism. Sooner than later.
Okay, NOW it’s Orbitz time. I checked on some flights, with Atlanta (ATL) as the starting point, and Krakow (KRK) as the destination. One-way trips, with a stop at de Gaulle, run around $1,000 for a “very good” flight. If you want to return, then a round trip is a few hundred dollars more. You’ll obviously need, in addition to long-term paperwork, a Passport. I also recommend getting an IDP, based on the nebulous north and south zoning for eastern Schengen car insurance scams, er, rates.
Ever since the Patriots!!! decided to take our freedoms away in order to preserve them, I have detested commercial aviation with a heated passion, flying only once (for necessary business) in the last ten or so years. I also checked on the GA routes, and … one-way, just to Paris, on your own rental sets you back about $80K. So…
Take a CARGO SHIP!
Seriously. Freight moves across the Atlantic every single day and night and those giant ships have a few extra cabins they rent to travelers. Check THIS out. At that site, I think I saw a container cruise from Charleston to Antwerp. It takes about nine days to make the voyage, with the eighth day held over in Liverpool. The going rates vary, but are usually between $75 and $120 per day, approximately the price of the one-way flight. Plus, you get a cruise vacation on the way.
The ships are huge, stable, and well-appointed. The cabins look larger and nicer than what one might find on one of the ghastly petri dish / floating buffets of the Carnival variety. Plus, it will only be you, maybe two to six other passengers, and fifteen to twenty crewmen. They have gyms, bars, great food, plenty of deck space, endless fresh air and sunshine, satellite communication, and some ships even have pools. You’ll find plenty of videos about the experience. Best of all, perhaps, is the customs angle. It appears that about nine out of ten times, that process consists of the Captain or someone at the terminal stamping you and saying, “have a nice day.” This could conceivably be a way around a Hoaxid quarantine or even an embargo. You have options.
You also have options going from port to Poland – bus, train, rental car, or plane. Flights between European cities can be ridiculously cheap (like $25). Subcompact rentals are equally inexpensive, even with “their” insurance (get it), though they will hit you for dropping off in another country. I’d go with the train, were I in your young shoes. Oh, speaking of, you can also hike or bike. Options.
However you get there, enjoy the trip and remember that you’re doing your small part to save the West. My postcard isn’t obligatory and I’d probably soon misplace it, but it’s the thought, you know.
**Drafting-time Update: As of Wednesday, July 1, 2020, Americans are banned from entering the EU for the duration of the Hoaxid, Phase X, but hopefully not for the full duration of the national demise.
UPDATE (7/13/20): Okay, I Think It’s Poland
We interrupt this continuing exploration of the rest of civilization to bring you more astounding news and facts about Polska. This is subpart four-A, or Poland 3.0, or … Even More Poland!
One, who knows the lying Western media, can generally tell when they’re lying by the way they couch news of events. Anything they say is bad tends to be good and vice versa. So it was with the quick snippet of nonsense I caught on CNBC announcing the re-election of Polish President Andrzej Duda. Congratulations, Mr. President! Keep given’ em hell!
Here’s how Pawel Knut reported the victory at CNBC’s sister outlet, NBC “News:” Poland exit polls mean victory for homophobic Andrzej Duda — and misery for LGBTQ people. I always refer to NBC “News” with the “News” in quotation marks for a reason. These are the people who brought you George Zimmerman’s 911 call, with a few minor edits. They also had a correspondent who made a fuss out of his harrowing illness with the CoronaHoax – except that he never had it. Now, they slander a very good man because he dares to defend and promote his people. They are especially pissed-off that, for all the homopedo propaganda, the Polish People, praise them, kept the Faith. There’s no need to quote anything from the virulently anti-Polish, anti-Christian, anti-White, anti-traditional tirade of a sad man who makes his living debasing human existence. However, as is frequently the case, his lies have some basis in truth.
He is correct about communism and the mighty Catholic Church keeping Poland united and traditional. He uses the word “homogenic” as a slur. Visit Poland, and you’ll see it is a Blessing, and that it is endorsed by one of the few uncucked branches of the Church. And, for all its failings, this does demonstrate again that communism is preferable to globalism, in that the aim of the communists is to control a nation, not destroy it.
He is also correct, though his anger is misplaced, that Duda and the Polish People rightly equate LGBTP with pedophilia. That’s what the “P” stands for! And, yes, they did infiltrate the P’s nascent camp, finding exactly what one would find in a den of satanic debauchery. It’s not a smear campaign, it’s the horrible truth.
Poland is, always has been, and will continue to be a place for sane, peaceful, traditional, and Faithful Europeans of the highest order. It’s a place where ordinary family men, burly football fans, and nothing-like-those-in-Minneapolis police unite to protect women, children, and civic order from insane criminals. That’s why I can safely say that, as the NAWA program suggests, Poland would be my first choice. It’s a place for us. If anyone finds it miserable, then they should leave and never return.
Learn more about this wonderful way of life by reading Jack Krak’s (I’m betting that’s a pseudonym) five-part series on Poland and life in happy Krakow at AmRen. Start with Part One.
In Part Three, Jack gets into the Polish school system. Those who know me, know that I still suffer from the education bug despite Dr. Ironsides’s success in closing down Amerika’s public skoole cisdem, at least for a few months (yes, we’re claiming victory!). If you’re young and you move to Polska, then you should contemplate marriage and a family as soon as possible. That means kids and kids mean learning. I still favor a home approach, including unschooling – all of which is legal, accepted, and practiced in Poland. Just know that, if you send the tykes to the local schoolhouse, they’ll get a real education there.
Earlier, I noted that the Poles practice a variant of the classical model. Jack goes into some detail about the curriculum. Suffice to say, it differs radically from that in the States. The short summary is that Polish schools work, while Amerikan skooles do not. (Polish kids can tell time on a clock, for instance).
Poland only spends about 40% of the US average expenditure per pupil. Yet, somehow – and this is so strange given what we’re constantly lectured to about “need mo’ money!” – Poland outranks and outclasses the Empire in every measurable category. Poland pecks around the top ten in reading, math, and science, which features very stiff competitive ground because all of the top performers are, what’s the word? They’re all homogenic societies as Herr Nut would call them. (Some of the other high competitors are also covered in this series!) The US hits in the twenties and the forties. Yeah…
Poland does not have school buses, and yet, somehow the kids all make it to school every day. While there, no one gives them a free lunch. Somehow they avoid starvation. The sweet children do not suffer from stormtrooper resource officers, dogs, metal detectors, etc, because their schools don’t use them or need to. In Polish schools, when not studying multiple foreign languages, simultaneously, the kids speak Polish. They don’t waste money on big team sports and other non-educational activities, viewing such as the province of the individual’s free time and proclivities. By the way, while Amerika is the most obese of the larger countries, Poland ranks a slim 69th, so obviously they’re approach works.
There is no “diversity” amongst the studentry, and thus, there is no associated distraction, slowing, coddling, or crime. Few problems, and many benefits. Jack reports that a recent education scandal revolved around an ill-fated plot to introduce soft drinks and candy into the schools. Less sugar = better health = more learning. I’ll take scandals like that.
I think I hinted, earlier, that the Polish system was somewhat like the French. It is. The students, upon reaching a certain advanced age, take something akin to le Bac, through the results of which they sorted by interests and abilities. They leave the one-size-fits-none approach to the diverse, money-obsessed, and failure-prone countries like Amerika.
Read all five of his installments. Poland isn’t perfect, being the abode of humans, but its imperfections are manageable, microscopic by comparison, and appear to blend with the overall charm of the place.
I’ve been asked about residency applications, and I think I’ve covered that, at least as to starting the process. Now, some of you want to jump the pistolet and know about obtaining citizenship. That’s great. Find updated information about the requirements and routes, HERE. You can also utilize services like this one to ease the process along. The main barrier is compatibility, which I assume will not be a terminal problem for anyone who has made it this deep into the series. The second issue is paperwork, which I sincerely hope you like. Remember to get it certified and officially translated! As a reminder, consider hiring an attorney like Mr. Sawicki.
You likely were not born there and I don’t think any of you will be admitted by way of minor adoption (of you), so let’s look at the feasible routes.
Polish Descent: If you have Polish blood, you’re in! Provided, of course, you submit the reams of necessary papers.
Marriage: Marry a lovely Pole and it will help with the process of,
Naturalization: Speak convincing Polish, don’t be a criminal, keep a job, own or rent a house, kill many trees en route to certification. Time requirements apply. I expect that being a student or an English instructor would greatly assist with this process.
There’s also the miraculous provision of Article 18, which I will leave alone for now – I’ll keep my private plans private, thank you.
Another cool and patriotic development of late is the reconstitution of the Polish Territorial Defence Force. This is the Polish National Guard, reserve force, or militia. In a year or so, they aim to host, in addition to their regular armed forces, a 54,000-man “home guard.” Such is part-time and voluntary, armed and organized, and will allegedly provide backup or auxiliary support to the army or police if needed. I think I know why they’re arming up: Soros, you and your trash just ain’t coming in! If you go, consider volunteering. It may be possible to do so as a resident and not yet a citizen. What better what to ingratiate yourself with your new compatriots – which I mentioned elsewhere is critical – than to stand with them in defense of everything they (and you) hold dear?
Again, I started with the first three recommended nations for a reason, with Poland the very first and foremost. These sections were originally published piecemeal. If you’re reading straight through, then, yes, I do believe I am trying to sell Poland. Maybe buy it while you can. Postcard, etc.
*Again, if re-posting this article, please do it: in full, by simple link (with or without quote(s), or not at all.
Commencement Under Social Distancing And Civil Unrest
Welcome back, beloved readers. I trust your masks are properly fitted. Last Friday, I had to modify this column in order to account for the ongoing annihilation of the United States. First, about that…
When I wrote, “imagine it nationwide, thrice as intense, maybe with a few heavy bombing runs and some armor on the streets, and you’ll have a good image of a not-too-distant future,” I was not giving instructions nor did I mean the future as in four minutes after I pressed send. Anyway, this is what we get for so many decades of willful decline. What’s happening in Minneapolis, Atlanta, New York, DC, LA, Houston, and most other cities has nothing to do with George Floyd. It is the attempted refutation of civilization and confirmation of what went wrong with the Tower of Babel. It is urban, 4G warfare. Sadly, more will follow.
Anyway, CONGRATULATIONS TO THE CLASS OF 2020!
Here are a few things that I might do if I were in your shoes and in possession of what I know now. You won’t pay attention to all of this and that’s okay. Everything I mention isn’t appropriate or necessary for everyone. That too is fine.
You’ve done it, and we are proud of you. Most of you, statistically, just graduated from public high schools. Some of you were stuck with a “digital” ceremony while others got to march in person but strictly under Doctor Fauci’s restrictive gaze. Either way, you’re out and that is fantastic. Many of my other columns are about how bad the schools were and are.
But, as predicted by Hall & Oates, the long halls and gray walls have split apart. There is life after high school – though it’s considerably stranger now than it used to be. You lucky young adults are free of the government’s education plantation prison. Here, some bad news – the world has myriad other bullshit schemes just waiting to continue that controlled existence you just escaped. My advice? Don’t fall for them or into them. I recommend a departure from the prevailing anti-culture.
This is and is not the “monastic option” as set forth by Morris Berman in Twilight of American Culture. It is and is not what John Taylor Gatto and Anthony Esolen have written about young people, education, and society. It is and is not what Neal Boortz devised in 1997 in his Commencement Speech. It is and is not an extension of my 2015 article, Valediction. Valediction means “farewell” or “in parting.” It, of course, stems from the Latin root, vale (buh-bye!), and is the cousin of our adopted word, valedictorian (highest grade in the class). Current valedictorians may or may not be deprived of speeches of their own. With such an introduction, I’ll try to keep mine relatively short and bulleted. Here goes:
Keep Faith In God.
Get your life out of sync with the rest of the world as soon as possible. Like now. The greatest advice of our column’s namesake, C.F. Floyd.
Stay out of debt. All of it. There is no such thing as good usury. This especially applies to evil student usury. Cash.
Rethink college. Some are good to great. Most of them are worse than useless. Consider working while learning a trade and independently studying your academic field(s) of interest. Keep it simple, cheap, and logos-based.
Work hard for something worthwhile. Whatever you do, make sure it’s honorable and that you enjoy it.
Seriously rethink your relationship with what I call The Empire. Almost nothing you’ve been taught about your country is true anymore. America collapsed. The United States is collapsing. Something or some things will remain or emerge. Use your imagination and your wits to fit in or get out.
Abandon the popular “culture”. The mainstream is owned and operated by the enemy, for their interests and against yours. This includes television, movies, social media, pornography, drugs (to include most prescriptions), (c)rap, and other facets of the low, garbage anti-culture. You’ll never miss it.
GET OUT OF THE CITIES! After this past weekend, this should be self-explanatory.
Consider moving somewhere remote. In America or abroad. In a new country, the goal is to blend in so well that natives assume you are one of them. I’m slowly inching towards the hills. If I was young and I moved overseas, my choice(s) would be in Eastern Europe.
Diversity + Proximity = War. Find your tribe. All the fluffy things you were told about “inclusion” helped fuel what’s burning our cities. Ali’s “bluebirds and redbirds” again. Yeah, sure, you know an exception. Know too, the rule.
Young men: Get in shape. Read everything.
Young women: Stay in shape. Be pleasant.
All young people: Think, behave, speak, and dress like civilized adults. Know and accept Jesus Christ. Know and hate evil.
Get married young and start a family. Don’t be afraid to start poor. His income, whatever it is, will be enough. She can manage the house, however large or small. Do not obsess over or wait for “the money.” Avoid like the plague anyone who tells you otherwise.
Do not be afraid. Fear isn’t natural. Avoid anyone who suggests otherwise.
Celebrate the beautiful. The wonderful. In everything.
There’s so much more, but I trust you will find your way bravely and expediently. I may have some more tips along the way. In a few future columns, we may explore a few affairs from some of those incredible and sure to be around in a century Eastern Euro nations. For my part, I relish presenting positive news about decent people who are willing to defend their traditions, about cultures that still actually are. Next week, we’ll celebrate a little of the forgotten (or obscured) history of our former nation. And, should the current events move to the next level, like with B-2 Spirits or something, I suppose I’ll deal with that too. Get out of the cities!
I mentioned this a few days ago but have no time to look into it. The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), 20 U.S.C. § 1232g, 34 CFR Part 99, protects student records from publication. Fourth-class government school districts coast-to-coast “debt shame” students, to include the mass publication of education-related “debts” – at taxpayer-funded government schools – to include student names and identifying information. Some of the debts include school meals, many of which may be otherwise covered by various federal programs run by the DOE and the USDA.
Question(s): Does such publication constitute a FERPA or other legal violation? If so, might some of you make class action hay out of it? Does the DOJ care about civil rights? Did they ever? Does anyone care?
I do but, again, lack the time. I’ll spell out my contribution: H-O-M-E-S-C-H-O-O-L.

A list of links for students, parents, homeschoolers, and the general public. A place to escape the government’s monopoly on education. I will add to this page, perhaps in a haphazard fashion.
Race, that is. Otherwise, how could a virus be genetically predisposed to pick one group over another? Some wise college students surely have the answer.
The state University at Albany is investigating whether an off-campus coronavirus-themed party violated the college’s student code of conduct, the university confirmed Thursday.
Asian American Alliance, a university student organization, condemned the party hosted by students last weekend, saying it was insensitive and racist. A statement on the alliance’s Instagram account said the virus “has led to not only mass stereotyping of Asian people, but also hundreds of deaths across the world.”
The virus is bad enough. If this party happened as alleged, then it was in poor taste. Seeking punishment via an evil “code of conduct” is as bad or worse, unAmerican. But, through their demand, the Asian students make an interesting admission: “Diseases that affect non-white populations are radicalized…” Well, only Asians have died from the nCoV thus far. Interesting, is it not? A better demand might be for answers about how the thing either mutated or was designed (radicalized, if you will). Who could have benefited?
Mass Attendance, mass surveillance, what’s the difference? And, these days, what is the point of attending most Amerikan universities? The University of Missouri mandates spying on its student inmates.
New students at the University of Missouri will be required to participate in a tracking program designed to measure and enforce class attendance, according to a new report from The Kansas City Star.
Despite privacy concerns, officials defended the decision as one to the benefit of students, as the school’s athletics department has already been using the same app, SpotterEdu, to track certain student-athletes.

“A student will have to participate in this recording of attendance,” Jim Spain, vice provost for undergraduate studies at MU, said in a statement to The Kansas City Star.
Individual professors have to opt-in to using the app, but once they do, students in those professors’ classes will not be able to opt-out.
SpotterEDU, developed by a former basketball coach, is designed to monitor a user’s attendance by “pinpoint[ing] students within a classroom until they leave, providing continuous, reliable and non-invasive attendance,” according to the app’s website. While the app ensures that students are in the classroom during class times, it claims it does not track students’ locations anywhere else.
“We only care if students are in class during class; no GPS tracking means we can’t locate them anywhere else,” the app’s website states.
However, the app is not incapable of tracking students’ locations outside the classroom.
They even use Newspeak! We can’t track them elsewhere, only in class. Well, it’s not incapable of outside tracking. BTW, SEC school graduates, that means it is capable of tracking them outside. And, it will. This isn’t ripe for abuse. It is abuse. By the same Mizzou (Columbia) that rates a solid “D” on ACTA’s 2019 What Will They Learn index. (St. Louis also = “D,” Kansas City = “F”). So, what will they learn? Not much, outside of the joys of being herded like cattle, lied too and fleeced. “F” that.
Some are still okay.
InfoWars ran this video in a plausible attempt to show college students at Georgetown sympathizing with one o’ them mean ole tarrists:
To one degree or another, in their own ways, these young people kind of get it. The first girl identifies the Empire as white supremacy. From her perspective, that’s understandable. But, all of them see through the fog. They have limited experience and education, yet they all intrinsically know that the Empire is evil and commits wanton atrocities across the globe. Good.
You may not know his name but he fought for you and your children. On the battlefield of America’s public schools. His only interest was in the promotion of learning. What a concept.
Gatto was the teacher we needed. He will be missed and hard to replace.
Over the course of his career, Gatto was recognized by other educators for the rapport he had built with his students. While other teachers were spending much of their day on behavioral management issues, Gatto’s students were actively engaged in his lectures and genuinely excited about learning. When faculty members would come to him seeking advice, his prescription was simple: treat your students the same way you treat anyone else.
Above all, Gatto understood that his students were not mere underlings, but individuals with unique skills and talents to share with the rest of the world. They didn’t want to be talked down to but longed to be treated with respect and dignity. He recognized that their worth was not determined by the neighborhoods where they lived, their parents’ annual salaries, or the scores they received on standardized tests. He concluded that “genius,” is “as common as dirt. We suppress genius because we haven’t yet figured out how to manage a population of educated men and women. The solution, I think, is simple and glorious. Let them manage themselves.”
After three decades in the classroom, Gatto realized that the public school system was squashing individualism more than it was educating students and preparing them for the real world. To make matters worse, his later research would reveal that this dumbing down was not just by accident, but by design.
Upon his realization, he resigned in protest and in order to further the truth and freedom. We, now, must take up the work.
