Over the past year, I've been in communication with several teachers who are telling me about the descent into more social programming in school classrooms.

From so-called environmental agendas, to discussions about gender orientation and choice of gender identity, to sex education, to teaching about "liberalism," the indoctrination is getting thicker and deeper.

This whole mind-engineering approach would suffer a devastating blow if logic were introduced into the curriculum, particularly at an early age.

One prime factor becomes clear the moment a student explores logic as a formal subject. That factor is THE PREMISE.

Deductive arguments begin from premises, also known as assumptions or givens.

Although logic focuses on the process of reasoning launched from the premises, there is no way to avoid looking at these basic assumptions, once the student learns how to find them.

"Is this premise true?" "Does it make sense?"

And then all bets are off, because social programming is short on reasoning and long on givens.

That's how mind-programming is done -- by pouring assumptions into the student.

Once he begins to look at them, study them, consider them, assess them, he is SEPARATE FROM THEM.

He can then gauge their truth or falsity.

He can decide whether they're grounded in fact, or are merely arbitrary notions designed to forward an ideology.

At that point, the roof caves in on the programmers.

This is one reason I designed a basic introductory logic course for high-school students and included it in my collection, The Matrix Revealed.

Interesting thesis. As a fellow who cheated to pass logic in college (What's with the p's and q's?) as well as one who suspects that the rules of reasoning are pretty much hardwired into brains (no need to learn the texbook labels) I have always wondered about the value of teaching logic as such. However, the example of questioning premises is a good one. People rarely do that (but they should). Can this kind of stuff be taught? I dunno. Plus, if it can be taught, it would work at cross purposes with the nature of schooling. Sorry, schooling is always primarily about indoctrination. But the argument is an interesting one, and I suspect there's something to it.

https://www.goodreads.com/author/quotes/19662.Lee_Iacocca :

"In a completely rational society, the best of us would be teachers and the rest of us would have to settle for something else."
" Lee Iacocca

(He served as President and CEO of Chrysler from 1978 and additionally as chairman from 1979, until his retirement at the end of 1992.)

I suspect he did not say this ironically but there is a load of irony above.

Obviously the "Iacocca's society" (known as US) is not very rational, good luck to all of us.

This has been going on for a long time. Jon Sirkis sang of it very succinctly : "We were learning what to think instead of how."
