Which is it? Anarchy or socialism? They are not the same you know. Socialism is all-pervasive government and anarchy is absence of government. It is not possible that schools are indoctrinating people in both.

Corbett: I will agree with you. What I should have said was that they are using chaos (instead of anarchy) as a diversion to create a crisis, which will bring big government solutions on board to solve the crisis. I think we sometimes use the word "anarchy" in place of chaos. The two can be, but are not necessarily directly related in the total definintion of the words.

Notice how OWS did NOT call for the abolition of government (i.e., anarchy). Instead they called for MORE government (i.e. socialism). They were not indoctrinated in anarchy. Civil (or in their case in-cilvil) disobedience is NOT anarchy.

These two are totally incompatible. You cannot have anarchy and socialism -- they are exact opposites. Well-orchestrated protests and demonstrations are not anarchy. Alinsky taught stirring up civil unrest, but he did NOT advocate anarchy. Since anarchy means freedom from government, it is anathema to people like Obama and the people who run the NEA.

They could be. They could be instructing kids to use forms of anarchy to create crisis which will then cause others to call for more govt. power to rectify the crisis. The anarchy portion is a temporary distraction to the ultimate goal of large, centralized, government control of the masses, for their own good of course.

Did you see and hear the OWS last summer? Both is what is being pushed in our Sociaist unioin education system.
Rep. John Lewis, D-Ga., in the wake of the Newtown, Conn., shootings, said: "The British are not coming. ... We don't need all these guns to kill people." Lewis' vision, shared by many, represents a gross ignorance of why the framers of the Constitution gave us the Second Amendment. How about a few quotes from the period and you decide whether our Founding Fathers harbored a fear of foreign tyrants.

Alexander Hamilton: "The best we can hope for concerning the people at large is that they be properly armed," adding later, "If the representatives of the people betray their constituents, there is...
