A political activist in Cleveland wrote to tell me that the people in his city are 66% functionally illiterate. Possibly the worst stats in America. He wanted me to write something about this tragedy. I immediately knew the title: “Hey, Cleveland? Why do you hate your children??”
Cleveland is uniquely dysfunctional. On the other hand, Cleveland’s story is the country’s story. Incompetent, probably corrupted bureaucrats aim low and hit their target. There may also be external pressures by the geniuses of sabotage we refer to as the Comintern. (I say may also be to be polite. But really, who else but Communists and other slave owners would deliberately strive to keep children illiterate?)
In which context I mention the famous interview with KGB defector Yuri Bezmenov. I urge everyone to learn more about his explanation for our decline and fall. The video is linked at the end of my article. Only 14 minutes and then you’ll know everything.
