Understanding The Hegelian Dialectic Means Seeing Through Media Lies And Disinformation

If you believe in anything you hear or see that comes from the television or otherwise “mainstream media”, then you probably don’t belong here.  In fact, you should probably just leave now.   If you feel a “?” forming above your head when you watch television, and think there’s always more to the story than what they are telling you, then there’s a good chance that I will be able to get through your thick skull.

What will be explored today is the “cheating scandal” that the media outlets are attempting to make you believe in.  We’ve all heard of standardized testing for public schools, which serve as a basis for “accreditation” programs and a way for grants to be distributed to municipalities.  Since these programs are essentially “normal” these days, it is also not very far-fetched to believe that fudging scores across the board is “normal” as well.

CNN and other outlets would have you believe that there’s some huge scandal with a small handful of “educators” a.k.a. minions of the system, that have been caught cheating by supposedly changing answers and otherwise making it appear that their students are excelling on these tests.  The truth is, this has been going on since the tests have been being given, and rewards in the form of grants have been awarded.  Note that billions of  dollars worth of grants are also solicited to public school boards to get them in line to meet accreditation requirements.  Standardized test scores are there to create the illusion that the accreditation programs really work, they are a reflection, or are meant to be a reflection of the system working in a positive way.

What is really happening in Atlanta with the media-hyped “cheating scandal” is not a scandal at all, but is how the system actually works, and the message being broadcast across the nation about it is a warning to school boards… MAKE SURE YOUR CHEATERS DON’T GET COLD FEET!!!  Because that’s exactly what happened.  CNN and their counterparts are broadcasting a message, not to the general public about a scandal, but they are sending out an S.O.S. in disguise.  Those in the know, who are involved with and responsible for implementing accreditation programs in inner city school systems are being outed right this instant.  That’s right, I AM CALLING YOU OUT!

Lies about “indictments” and media headlines claiming that educators are starting to “turn themselves in” are designed to make the everyday mindless person think that some bad people got caught doing some bad things, but there could be nothing further from the truth.  This is Hegel’s dialectic at it’s finest.

Now you’re probably thinking, “what about the pictures of the teachers walking into the police station…” this and that.  Well, don’t you think that they have to question all the people that are *known* to be involved, the so-called trusted ones responsible, yes, responsible, as in they are tasked with changing test scores, and get down to the nitty-gritty to find out who the *defector* was?

Yes, there was a defector.  And he or she needs to come forward NOW or bad, bad things are going to happen to that person.  See, the purpose of the “indictments” are to find out who the defector was… are you starting to get it?  Without the fudged scores, and the entire accreditation program on the line, those municipalities have a lot to lose, and you can be certain that the rabbit hole goes much deeper than just a few “educators” cheating on a few tests to make their school look better.

Sounds to me like someone cheated on one of those character assessments that are given to see who could be in the “cool club” of teachers.
