School ethics course linked to Nazism, says Nile
The Australian ^ | August 05, 2011 | Staff

Conservative NSW crossbench MP Fred Nile has introduced his private member's bill to abolish school ethics classes, arguing the course is based on a philosophy linked to Nazism and communism.

The Christian Democratic Party MP told the upper house his bill would abolish ethics classes in public schools at the end of this school year, saying that with just 2700 students enrolled, the program had been a failure.

"It's relative ethics, which is the basis of secular humanism and I believe ... this is the philosophy we saw during World War II with the Nazis and with the communists," Mr Nile told the Legislative Council.

Ethics classes were introduced by the former Labor government as an alternative for children who did not want to attend traditional scripture classes.

The Reverend Nile provoked anger among Greens and Labor MPs when he said the "dangerous" secular humanist philosophy taught in the ethics course had led to the worst atrocities committed during World War II.

Situation ethics, as I see it, was followed by other regimes such as the Nazis and communists,'' Reverend Nile said.

"Situation ethics means nothing is right and nothing is wrong ... Therefore, you can kill human beings without any embarrassment and any reservations.

"It's a very dangerous philosophy."

Secular Humanism - Excluding God from Schools & Society
Secular Humanism is an attempt to function as a civilized society with the exclusion of God and His moral principles. During the last several decades, Humanists have been very successful in propagating their beliefs. Their primary approach is to target the youth through the public school system. Humanist Charles F. Potter writes, “Education is thus a most powerful ally of humanism, and every American school is a school of humanism. What can a theistic Sunday school’s meeting for an hour once a week and teaching only a fraction of the children do to stem the tide of the five-day program of humanistic teaching?” (Charles F. Potter, “Humanism: A New Religion,” 1930)

John J. Dunphy, in his award winning essay, The Humanist (1983), illustrates this strategic focus, “The battle for humankind’s future must be waged and won in the public school classroom by teachers who correctly perceive their role as the proselytizers of a new faith: A religion of humanity — utilizing a classroom instead of a pulpit to carry humanist values into wherever they teach. The classroom must and will become an arena of conflict between the old and the new — the rotting corpse of Christianity, together with its adjacent evils and misery, and the new faith of humanism.”

Is this what’s happening? John Dewey, remembered for his efforts in establishing America’s current educational systems, was one of the chief signers of the 1933 Humanist Manifesto. It seems the Humanists have been interested in America’s education system for nearly a century. They have been absolutely successful in teaching children that God is imaginary and contrary to “science.” ......

SE isn't very far from ‘pragmatism’ which has been the operational philosophy of perhaps a majority of Americans for the last century. While this soft form of opportunism does help make operating the various mega-instituions that constitute the framework of society much smoother it gradually has a corrupting effect on public life. A century ago corrupt politicians were recognized as such. Today the spread of pragmatic opportunism has made personal and public transactions far more opaque and grayer. A good part of the extraordinary vitriol directed t the TEA Party movement is because it is generally anti-pragmtic and somewhat morally absolutist. For decades the last phrase is one of the worst insults in the politician or academics lexicon.

When I first started working in the public classroom in the late seventies I remember the teachers all excited about this new age math and this situaltional ethics being taught in Kindergarten. Group math (collectivization) and destruction of individualism and excellence and the “thinking outside of the box”. Destroy the future Einsteins and Wright Bros. and Edisons.

This moral relativism was started with John Dewey when he kicked out the Moral Absolutes in the McGuffey Readers which we had for hundreds of years that created the Edisons and the Wright bros. and the Mark Twains—well most didn’t go to school past the age of 13 but that was before the socialist agenda where the forced Prussian type teaching creates idiots who can’t think-—using BF Skinner techniques to force “group think” and situational ethics and bore the intelligent kids to death and make them hate learning.

In other words: Feel good, do it. Emotions trumps intellect—and they make sure your intellect stays small...with twisted history and demonization of every thing good in this country. No understanding of the geniuses of Western Civ because that teaches Values like Wisdom, Truth, Duty, and Courage.

Hey ho, Western Civ has got to go. The cultural Marxists designed a method to destroy America from within...they started with universities—then the elementary schools and media—same time—and, voila....obamabots.

Intentional people and yes, a “conspiracy”-—why do you think they worked 24-7 since McCarthy to make people think that if you “think” there is a “conspiracy” you are crazy!!!!! It was part of the conditioning!!! Ha!! They made you think McCarthy was evil when all he was doing was pointing out the truth (although clumsily) —he was set up by the Communists running govt. committees, and then the communists in the press repeated the big lies—over and over and over —til McCarthy actually did drink himself to death—everyone thought he was insane.....such a typical communist routine—demonize those with the truth—destroy them with lies-—they did the same thing to Solzhenistzen and everyone who defies their agenda.

All they do is lie. There is no right or wrong—only what they tell you is right and wrong and you never matter—they can kill you as easily as a fly.

Humanism, eh. This comparison between the Humanist Manifesto and Anton LaVey's Satanic Bible shows too many similarities for comfort . . .

My daughter has been a teacher for about 5 yrs. I tell her often to teach the kids to love America. I also tell her to ignore the people in the ivory tower, and do her own thing, which is to make sure they can read, write, tell time, and count change so at least they can get a job when they leave school. She laughs but I know she loves this country and doing the right thing.

A few interesting videos by an Englishman - they’re further along over there...

Coumo is starting to regionalize the NY area.. They’ve had socialized medicine since WWII. In the last few decades they’ve closed down hospitals. If people have an emergency situation...having a baby etc., they must travel 30 miles. They’ve just implemented socialized medicine here thus are readying for the cuts...everything must be standardized globally. No one should do better than anyone else etc...

Common Purpose...

I’m with you Susie, in that, I couldn’t care less who thinks I’m a conspiracy nut because I think the opposite, in that, we’re being conspired against.

I am watching the videos at that UK site...very scary....and it underlines exactly what I have been watching and noticing for the last 20 years particularly.. It is exactly like the Pink Swastika book states esp. there end that declaration by homosexuals that they will get your boys.. It is sick. But that is exactly what is being allowed by parents who see nothing wrong with worldview of “gay pride”—pride in disgusting sexual acts—and Day of Silence....Repect for disgusting unlogical use of body. Normalizes all sex acts because it destroys sexual morality. It is that simple. ANd it is Brussels world.

It is really a very sick godless world. We are being steered and our children are being brainwashed and conditioned. We do need to change it for the children. Heve your daughter read BK Eakmans book, The Cloning of the American Mind.

Thanks susie. I’ll get her the book. YOu mention the normalizing of all sex acts. I just read today that they’re now having a conversation on the normalcy of hetrosexuality. Up is down and down is up.
