Dumb Them Down With a Lame Educational System   The education system predominantly used in the USA was developed over 100 years ago, based on the Prussian model, with the aim of creating a force of obedient soldiers and factory workers. Paolo Freire described it as a banking system,  in which information is deposited into the head, rather than a dialogical system where students learn through questions and dialog. 

Keep Them on the Brink of Broke  bleed them with health insurance or bankrupting health bills. Pay them minimum wage. Suck them into balloon mortgages that cost them their savings, their homes and leave them with no credit. Sell a system that makes it seem that the only way to get ahead is with a college education, then make them pay for it using  massive amounts of student loans so they are terminally in debt.  

Partner With Fundamentalists Evangelicals and Orthodox Jews work well as allies. Fundamentalist Muslims are antagonist partners. You vilify them. They vilify you. It works for both sides. Zionism works. There are about 60 million zionists and they're mostly fundamentalist Christians hoping Israel will engage in a nuclear war that will blow up, so they can experience the rapture. Roman Emperor Constantine embraced the Christian church as a strategy for winning a battle. it worked. The partnership between the Christian church and war monger despots has existed ever since.  Orthodox and other Jewish and non-Jewish zionists in the US and israel (where a lot of the Israeli settlers are transplanted from Brooklyn and other Orthodox enclaves) are incredibly effective at influencing elections, particularly through AIPAC. Corporatists just enjoy the ride of these fundamentalist mules.

Rob Kall has spent his adult life as an awakener and empowerer-- first in the field of biofeedback, inventing products, developing software and a music recording label, MuPsych, within the company he founded in 1978-- Futurehealth, and founding, organizing and running 3 conferences: Winter Brain, on Neurofeedback and consciousness, Optimal Functioning and Positive Psychology (a pioneer in the field of Positive Psychology, first presenting workshops on it in 1985) and Storycon Summit Meeting on the Art Science and Application of Story-- each the first of their kind.  Then, when he found the process of raising people's consciousness and empowering them to take more control of their lives  one person at a time was too slow, he founded Opednews.com-- which has been the top search result on Google for the terms liberal news and progressive opinion for several years. Rob began his Bottom-up Radio show, broadcast on WNJC 1360 AM to Metro Philly, also available on iTunes, covering the transition of our culture, business and world from predominantly Top-down (hierarchical, centralized, authoritarian, patriarchal, big)  to bottom-up (egalitarian, local, interdependent, grassroots, archetypal feminine and small.) Recent long-term projects include a book, Bottom-up-- The Connection Revolution, debillionairizing the planet and the Psychopathy Defense and Optimization Project.
