The progressive philosophy of a utopian international totalitarian state is the orthodox position of the Department of Education in the United States, and indeed the very reason the department was created was for its promulgation. Widespread family dissolution coupled with centralized institutional control over education makes it possible for children to be indoctrinated from an early age with collectivist ideals and to be conditioned to have compliant behavioral traits rendering them submissive to authority and responsive to peer pressure.
Chester M. Pierce, Professor of Education and Psychiatry, Harvard University:
“Every child in America entering school at the age of five is mentally ill because he comes to school with certain allegiances to our founding fathers, toward our elected officials, toward his parents, toward a belief in a supernatural being, and toward the sovereignty of this nation as a separate entity. It is up to you as teachers to make all of these sick children well -- by creating the international child of the future.”
(addressing the Association for Childhood Education International in April, 1972, Denver, Colorado)
Professor Pierce served as president of the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology, president of the American Orthopsychiatric Association and was a founding chairman of the Black Psychiatrists of America.
