I think the techniques were a smokescreen for the real agenda of the Left - to take over the minds of American children. If you scoff at the long range conspiracy, then you are not familiar with the obsessive nature of leftism. Bill Ayers is still working after all these years to brainwash the educators who teach the people that teach your children. How to break this chain of brainwashing will take much effort and determination on our side. Are Republicans too independent to counter this, when the other side has religious fervor on their side?

Anyone who has followed the decades-long controversies over the role of genes in IQ scores will recognize the names of the two leading advocates of opposite conclusions on that subject-- Professor Arthur R. Jensen of the University of California at Berkeley and Professor James R. Flynn, an American expatriate at the University of Otago in New Zealand.

What is so unusual in the academic world of today is that Professor Flynn's latest book, "Are We Getting Smarter?" is dedicated to Arthur Jensen, whose integrity he praises, even as he opposes his conclusions. That is what scholarship and science are...
