Those Who Refuse To Unlearn, Deschool and Deprogram Will Be This Generation’s Illiterate

The general definitions and terminology for illiteracy vary depending on their orientation to specific subject areas. Most people assume illiteracy pertains solely to those with the inability to read or write simple sentences in any language. However, those suffering from learning, cultural and scientific illiteracy are a different group all together. The coming generation of illiterate adults will be those who cannot unlearn, deschool or deprogram themselves from conventional thinking. It will be those who cannot free themselves from mainstream opinions and thought processes that require individuals to think outside the box or get rid of the box entirely.

Conventional thinkers have many problems letting go of the perceived reality they’ve set up for themselves to understand the world, regardless of its harm to themselves or others. We can no longer cast blame on controlling mechanisms in institutions or corporate culture which dictate our behavior on a daily basis. At some point, we must realize that every person is responsible for their own awareness regardless of what they have been taught by others.

IQ, college and university degrees, and actually all mainstream education only accounts for about 20% of a person’s success and that percentage is only decreasing every year. By far the majority of a person’s success is attributable to social, emotional intelligence and the ability to foster hope. Trumping general intelligence, previous academic achievement and personality, hope “uniquely predicts objective academic achievement,” showed a three-year longitudinal study out of the University of Manchester.

Those with higher degrees of emotional intelligence have strong filters to the everyday brainwashing which is designed to indoctrinate weak minds. They are not as susceptible to neurolingusitic programming in schools, corporate culture, media, or societal influences. They have a greater capacity to think for themselves because they think more with their hearts and not their minds.

The True Meaning of Illiteracy 

Education is not just the means of making you a degree holder; it is the gateway to the art of living. You can be culturally and socially illiterate about the world with the inability to think for yourself, yet still have a degree. Real education enables you to think, to discover the principles of life, and to correctly evaluate your experiences. Education gives you the ability to know the difference between the achievable for the good of humanity as opposed to the achievable for malevolent masters whose only desire is power and greed. Education empowers your strengths and allows you to excel in all the right areas that embrace your uniqueness.

Illiteracy in the coming decades will be restricted to those who have confined, robotic minds. To those who:

- cannot detach from the medical mindset which insists on injecting infants with vaccines or prescribing medications for every problem labeled as a disease
- feel they must obey every law issued by government no matter how ridiculous or contrary to logical reasoning or destructive to human nature.
- feel a federally or centrally governed nation maintains or advances human societies
- think government intrusion in our natural world is normal
- think our elected leaders always have our best interests at heart.
- think voting is actually part of the effective democratic process of an elected leader
- feel it’s ok for our politicians to legislate to ban all weapons from the public, yet feel it’s perfectly fine to bomb other countries into oblivion.
- still believe that the safety of a nation trumps free will and the freedom of choice.
- see genetically modified foods and our toxic food industry as a reasonable element in sustainable health
- see limitations everywhere, from earth’s resources to the potential and strength of humanity.

These are the confined minds who can’t think outside the box they are in. They are so stuck in that box, that it takes a profound event to shake their reality so that they can at least see they’re inside a box.
They will be the illiterate who we must help reprogram if they are to ever survive the coming age. The visionaries and game changers of our world don’t even think inside or outside the box…they simply throw out the box and revolutionize the way we think about ourselves and our planet. 

In 2011, a brilliant comment from an elementary school student hit home just as facilitators were gathering opinions and impressions about education. Commenting on what she thought about education and how it could be modified to teach children better, 11 year-old Julia Williams from a Grade 6 class said:

“I don’t like school because they take everything I’m good at and tell me I can’t do it anymore. I just want to once be able to do the things I’m good at like drawing and writing stories. I want to do it all day because I can think better than when I do stuff like math. Shouldn’t I be able to really like or even love what I do when I come here. They should help kids do what they know how to do best and I think the rest…I mean all the other subjects will just work out, and if they don’t, well…then they’re just not that important.”

Deprogramming and Deschooling Children

For future generations to learn what society has become, why we have the problems we do in the world, and why adults never progress beyond many of their mistakes, it will be necessary to move out of the current educational paradigm and into a new one. This will involve a systematic deprogramming and deschooling of all children in developed nations.

In a sense children are psychologically conditioned to fail and lose hope. Fear of failure breeds inaction and hopelessness. It’s a vicious cycle. When children lack hope, they will fear failure. When they fear failure, they will never act. They then take this formula with them and apply it in all instances of their lives. The result is that they never develop a positive mindset to hope for the best and that determines their reality. Only the strongest children who are empowered by their parents can break free from this slave mindset so prevalent in educational institutions.

Deschooling takes children out of schools, but, unlike a lot of home-school approaches, it doesn’t import the classroom into the home. It does away altogether with educational clutter such as curricula and grades.

Deschoolers maintain that a child’s learning should be curiosity-driven rather than dictated by teachers and textbooks, and that forcing kids to adhere to curricula quashes their natural inclination to explore and ask questions.

Deschooled children can organize their knowledge in free and better ways. They never need to feel they are through learning, or past the point that they can begin something new. Each thing they discover can be useful eventually. If we help provide them with ever-changing opportunities to see, hear, smell, taste, feel, move and discuss, what they know will exceed in breadth and depth what any school’s curriculum would have covered. It won’t be the same set of materials–it will be clearer and larger but different.

It is the deschooled generation who will have the least chances of illiteracy in the future. They will have expanded minds, embracing concepts that are impossible for limited minds to comprehend. They are our future leaders and visionaries who will pave the path for a new species of humans and a home which we will call the new earth. And it’s coming soon.

  1. A great article which should be read by more people and not only that it should be acted upon. Vaccination is truly the big one out there – herd mindset and ‘herd immunity’- come on people wakey wakey it is now 2013 and time to wake out of your slumber.

  2. Barbara says:

    I’m strongly thinking about homeschooling my, excuse me OUR two children.
    The biggest challenge is gonna be my family, they want them to go to school.
    They don’t see, are not really aware what is happening there.

    But in our country homeschooling is very very rare.
    Our children are unvaccinated, organic, vegan, they are carried in a wrap as long as they want, they are happy and healthy.

    Most think it ‘s idiot to do, but they do extremly well, so why don’t they, at least, study it?

    Illiterate, indeed…

    Any suggestions how to keep peace with family?
    When you homeschooled your children how did you do it?
    Did your children like it, or did they dislike it not beng allowed to go to school?
    please mail

  3. Check out Ivan Illich ‘Deschooling socity’.

    try deschooling your kids and the gestapo will be knocking down your doors. Their power reside on the hope that school will still continue to turn out zombie cookie cutter thinkers who they can plug in the matrix and never worry about them having one scintilla of rebellious inclination to think outside of the box.

    • VYtas says:

      The whole system works that way you are afraid you do nothing. Do not say that you are afraid to say something to your kid that is unbelievable.

  5. Byzcat says:

    New Age nonsense…

  6. Churchill says:

    Good article. Courses to take if one would prefer to excell in true ‘Illiteracy’ would be ‘Law, Political Science, Sociology, Psychology, Humanities and, all related fields of study as they tend lead to occupations and careers enabling society to be corrupted as well as controlled by attempting to delete the Individual of their ‘Sovereign Mind’ and it’s thought process in order to comply and bow to the Select Few.

  7. TOM PAYNE says:

    This guy is only half an idiot.

  8. Anonymous says:

    Those who shit on this excellent article only do so because they are too brainwashed and selfish to accept that they might just be doing the wrong thing by their children in sending them to school, too preoccupied with their own bullshit to prioritize making the time to give their children the attention they truly need. We should never allow our children to be raised by the state. Shame on you people, your children deserve better. You shall go the way of the dinosaur!

  9. T. Jefferson says:

    This is impractical. Only a tiny minority have the time and the ability to teach their kids at home. The corruption of modern culture is no reason to abandon organized schooling, although it is now dumbed down and morally vacuous. If Jewish power can be broken in America, organized schooling can be rehabilitated.
