    As Gustave Le Bo lamented: “The masses have never thirsted after truth. They turn aside from evidence that is not to their taste, preferring to deify error, if error seduces them. Whoever can supply them with illusions is easily their master; whoever attempts to destroy their illusions is always their victim.”

    Agreed. They're also the ones who attack teachers as a group and seek to defund the US K-12 educational system.

    Speaking of MAGA home schooling, to the best of my knowledge, I never met anyone in graduate school or any peers in any of my professional careers who were home schooled.

    Which makes me question the overall effectiveness of home schooling. What are they teaching in MAGA home schools? Flat Earth theory and young Earth creationism?

    The truly scary thing is we have radicals like her on the right also and both of these idiots vote.
    An example of the extreme partisanship of Democrats and Republicans today.

    And believe schools are indoctrinating students into liberalism; although, most college educated whites vote Republican (until Trump).

    Any idiot can see the extreme partisanship of the two parties today and verified by a lot of research on the topic.

    To claim only a conservative would say that is an insult to liberals who you must think are blind to such obvious trends.

    You are a conservative. I think you're a lot dumber than you realize.

    I've only met one. My youngest daughter's bf after h.s. was home-schooled, as were his brother and sister. The bf and the sister got GEDs, just have mediocre jobs, no desire to improve their lot via education. (I am still FB friends with the old bf who is an intelligent and nice guy, he just totally lacks ambition.) But his brother rebelled, went to h.s., then to Washington University in St. Louis. He has a PhD and post-doc achievement, in bioengineering. He's definitely an exception.
