Robert and I were interested in doing an episode where we can explore the nature and origin of the Prussian Model of education. We reached out to our friend Jack V Lloyd and he suggested that “Schooling the World” would make for a good movie as our focus.

If you wanted to change an ancient culture in a generation, how would you do it? You would change the way it educates its children.
The U.S. Government knew this in the 19th century when it forced Native American children into government boarding schools. Today, volunteers build schools in traditional societies around the world, convinced that school is the only way to a ‘better’ life for indigenous children. But is this true? What really happens when we replace a traditional culture’s way of learning and understanding the world with our own? SCHOOLING THE WORLD takes a challenging, sometimes funny, ultimately deeply disturbing look at the effects of modern education on the world’s last sustainable indigenous cultures. – Schooling the World (2010) on Films For Action
The documentary identifies many of the symptoms of the harms of government schooling; but misdiagnoses the causes and thus the prescriptions are misguided.

Here is a link to the ClimateRight Air Conditioner that I ‘brojected’ into my office with two old chairs, 6-4×4’s, an old garden hose, and 5 socks:
It works like a dream and took care of the humidity and heat problem I’ve been fighting in my office. Highly recommended….also will serve well during the upcoming colder turn in the weather as it is also a very efficient heater!
During the episode, we talked about various resources and Rothbard’s new book “The Progressive Era“:
