    227 (Live Show): Is World War Z Globalist Propaganda?

    "Alex Jones is gonna shit when he sees this." -my exact thought 25 minutes into the movie Topic: (School Sucks At the Movies) Cory, Osborne and I review World War Z. Our discussion includes a comparison of the film to the Max Brooks book by the same name, and an exploration the themes of and possible agenda behind both. I was so shocked and offended by the heavy-handed nature of the propaganda that I immediately went to to see if anyone else was talking about it. The film seems like it was designed to provoke conspiracy theorists. This is an edited version the 6-27-13 live show. School Sucks is live on UStream Thursdays at 6:30pm EST.

    226: How the Truth Becomes Illegal (Part 2) – Barometer

    Topic: Part two in a series of shows inspired by recent current events involving the NSA, Prism, Edward Snowden and the barrage of leading questions from the mainstream media about the government's "legal" power to censor or silence the truth. This installment deals primarily with both phases of The Red Scare (1919-1921 and 1947-1957), related trends in American politics (xenophobia, prohibition, isolationism, hyper-racism, paranoia), new uses of law and appeals to authority to control speech and the public mind, and some heavy hints of another dark conspiracy that began to overtake America early in the 20th century.

The realization that school sucks actually marks the beginning of a new and exciting educational journey.

Welcome to We strive to provide young people with the building blocks of intellectual, financial and lifestyle independence. This includes in-depth explorations into higher-level thinking, organization and productivity, emotional and physical health, habit and lifestyle optimization, history and philosophy, psychology, self-directed learning, entrepreneurship, and communication/negotiation strategies. It's all essential information, but almost none of it is taught in school.

Our content is ideal for frustrated high school and college students (deschooling), home-educating parents (unschooling), and adults who are interested in independently furthering their education and achieving self-actualization (self-directed learning). To see every topic at a glance, check out the site map.
