The following is an excerpt from John Taylor Gatto's book "The Underground History of American Education," it was submitted by a reader in relation to the gun control debate.
What if I proposed that we hand three sticks of dynamite and a detonator to anyone who asked for them. All an applicant would need is money to pay for the explosives. You'd have to be an idiot to agree with my plan -- at least based on the assumptions you picked up in school about human nature and human competence.The old idea of American justice was people were to be considered innocent until proven guilty, not guilty until proven innocent. In the new America, the government takes the rights from everyone due to the malfeasance of a few, and rather than live by the code "better a thousand guilty men go free than one innocent man be imprisoned," the new code is "better a thousand innocent men be imprisoned than one guilty man go free." That's why we have the world's largest prison population which rivals Stalin's gulags. Meanwhile, the crimes of the state go unchecked.
