When School House Rock, Rocked! A Time Capsule into the Past

If you want to see just how far the Progressive Movement has penetrated our culture all you have to do is look at School House Rock, from the 1970’s.

When I was a kid, I watched Saturday morning cartoons religiously; Hong Kong Phooey, Captain Caveman, and Land of the Lost were among my favorites.

Back then, sometime around 1974 to 1980 it was almost a guaranteed expectation that one of the below School House Rock video’s would air during commercial breaks.

These were useful and entertaining and helped a growing generation to understand their role in the country they lived in. You won’t find these types of cartoons produced today however. Instead, you get the Tides Foundation’s Story of Stuff, which is now shown in schools with public tax dollars supporting the progressive agenda.

When modern day educators and parents that are using public education as a convenient day care facility, or a chance for their child to get a scholarship using sports supplied by the school as a platform to exhibit their skills to colleges in hopes of getting a scholarship which will save that family some costs of higher education, keep in mind that this mind-set is only one generation old. School House Rock is a time capsule into a period before the effects of Progressivism had gained a firm footing in our country. The signs were emerging, but in our arrogance, we did not pay attention.

But now we’re awake.

It only takes a generation to destroy everything. It can take decades to rebuild.

Do you’re friends and neighbors a favor, send this to them so they can become aware of how quick and radically things changed in just one generation.

  1. The “change agents” have been working feverishly for over 100 years. They have been positioned in the “created” schools of education and therefore, in all of schools, for generations. Most teachers do not even realize that they have been indoctrinated.

    When the Department of Education was formed that is when the “change agents” went full throttle on their agenda of dumbing down” our citizens. You had a nice
    video of Charlotte Iserbyt (who did research for the Dept. of Ed.) describing some of the horrible things that were being planned for our children in the name of “education.” I would hope many would take time to view that video.

    The “school house rock” was a lucky production for your generation. Too bad that most current high school government classes do not offer even this simplistic view of how our government works.
