The Health & Wellness Show: Weapons of mass instruction: The perils of education - Brainwashing, Indoctrination and Robot Factories

© theswcsun.com
Today on the Health and wellness show we will revisit the education system and the ongoing brainwashing, indoctrination and dumbing down of the youthful masses. Compulsory schooling is creating dependent children who grow up to be dependent adults, passive and timid in the face of new challenges, lacking critical thinking and basic life skills. From the looks of it compulsory education is doing more harm than good. What are the social and emotional implications of educating today's youth with useless and needless information while stifling creativity, natural curiosity and the true desire to seek meaningful knowledge? Is the growing ignorance of today's student an example of a failing education system as a whole, or is it a crowning achievement with a more sinister agenda?

Join us as we discuss a side of compulsory education that is seldom studied, researched or looked at with a critical eye. The brainwashing and indoctrination doesn't end once 12 years of mandated education is completed it continues into higher education and university as well.

Stay tuned, as always, for Zoya's Pet Health Segment where the topic will be the bow-killing vet, Kristie Lindsay.

Behind the Headlines: Fake News About Fake News: WaPo Blacklists SOTT.net as Kremlin Disinfo

© RT
In the wake of the Trumpocalypse, "fake news" has been in the news. First it was Facebook being blamed for Trump's win because of the pro-Trump fake news floating around social media in the lead-up to the election.

Then, an obscure left-wing activist college professor hastily compiled a list of "fake news" sites and posted it on her social media. The list was picked up by such fake news sites as CNN, WaPo, Boston Globe, NY Magazine, USA Today, Business Insider, and more, with recommendations for serious readers to avoid such tainted goods.

Now, the Washington Post has cited an obscure list of "Russian propaganda" websites to justify its claim that a "Russian propaganda effort" helped spread fake news during the election. Included on the list? SOTT.net, among numerous other great alternative news websites.

Today on Behind the Headlines we share our thoughts on "fake news", who the real fakers are, and what we think about being labelled as Kremlin trolls or useful idiots.

The Truth Perspective: Radical political correctness, liberal ideologies and the decline of modern civilization

© Unknown
The loss by Hillary Clinton in the U.S. presidential elections, and the surprise win for Donald Trump, rather than exposing the Right's alleged underbelly of racism, bigotry, xenophobia and homophobia, has instead revealed something much more surprising, and potentially catastrophic for Western civilization as we know it: the cult of political correctness, obsession with identities, and a radical Left fringe that has ponerized inclusion and empathy to the point of authoritarianism. Whether it's on the domestic front of gender pronouns, safe spaces, and micro-aggressions, or on the foreign front of humanitarian intervention, human rights and the responsibility to protect, Western liberal values have lost all meaning.

On this edition of The Truth Perspective, we'll be discussing this trend, how it came about, and where it suggests we are headed.

The Health & Wellness Show: Precious Snowflake Syndrome: Cry ins, safe spaces and microaggressions

America is being overrun by a bunch of crybabies whose whining has reached a fever pitch. With the recent presidential election it's as if a switch has been flicked which gives people carte blanche to emote all over everyone else and throw tantrums in public. The ability to maintain a stiff upper lip and deal with adversity is being eroded. Feelings, however misplaced, are all that count while facts and reality are given short shrift. What are the roots of this emotional hysteria? Why do grown-ups need to hold cry-ins in their safe spaces while being protected from microaggressions? What are the effects on the individual specifically and society in general when a culture of narcissism and the eschewing of reality is not only accepted, but promoted?

Join us on this episode of The Health and Wellness show for a lively discussion of this topic. Stay tuned, as always for Zoya's Pet Health Segment where the topic will be euthanasia.

The Health & Wellness Show: Connecting the Dots: Fighting the winter blues, mental health, and the coming vaccine season

Join us for another Connecting the Dots episode where we'll catch up on the most recent news and timely topics in the world of health.

Winter is coming and Seasonal Affective Disorder will descend upon millions of people in the Northern Hemisphere. What part does shifting light cycles, either natural or artificially enforced through daylight saving time, play in mood and circadian rhythms? How can the effects of waning daylight be mitigated?

Winter also means that flu season is upon us and if the CDC had its way we'd all be vaccinated. We'll check in with that mega-organization and their partners in crime -- Big Pharma and the FDA -- to see what mischief they've been up to most recently.

We'll also discuss Italy's first Veggie City, protein intake and the wonders of vitamin B12, the disturbing rise of anxiety and suicides in children and how to naturally increase mental well being.

Stay tuned, as always, for Zoya's Pet Health Segment where she connects the dots in animal health news.

The Truth Perspective: 2016 US Presidential Election: The American Dream Turns American Nightmare

© Scott Bateman / thenib.com
Early US presidential election results 2016
Take a look at our 'Picture of the day' today. It fairly accurately sums up the generalized feeling of not only Americans but many people around the world, about the 2016 US Presidential election.

To say the 4 yearly contest has become a depressing and contemptible spectacle that is totally unbecoming for the 'world's greatest democracy' is to understate the matter. Then again, was the US ever the 'world's greatest democracy', or was that moniker little more than an example of the comfortable lie that is not, to the dismay of millions, being exposed?

This week on The Truth Perspective, with just 3 days to 'election' day when only about 40% of adult Americans will actually cast a vote, we'll be analyzing the latest news and considering the deeper implications of the apparent transformation of the American dream into a nightmare, and why it's happening right now.

Why is Hillary being attacked by powerful US establishment entities? Is a Trump win likely? If Trump wins, will he be a '21st Century Hitler'? All this and more will be discussed today by your hosts and special guest.

The Health & Wellness Show: Public schools: Where creativity, freedom and critical thinking go to die

Image
Most experts would agree that the public schooling system -- at least in the US -- is in dire straits. High dropout rates, failing test scores and pupil apathy and truancy are frequently blamed on lack of funding or poorly trained and unmotivated teachers. What if this isn't the case? What if the very existence of compulsory education is the problem? The founders of the public schooling system did not set out to create highly skilled, creative and competent individuals. They set out to create obedient workers who won't question their plight. Seen in this light, the public school system is a great success.

Join us on this episode of The Health and Wellness Show as we explore the topic of public education, its history and detriments as well as alternatives to keep your child and yourself -- if you're a product of the public school system -- from becoming a brainwashed zombie.

Stay tuned, as always, for Zoya's Pet Health segment where the topic will be natural sedatives for travelling pets.

The Health & Wellness Show: What have we done? Antibiotic resistance in the age of superbugs

Alexander Fleming discovered penicillin 1928 and it became available for widespread use in 1945. Since then people have benefited from the use of antibiotics in curing infections that would have previously sent them to their graves. Now, however, this golden age is coming to an end. Top researchers state that we are entering into the post-antibiotic era. Superbugs such as MSRA and CRE are on the rise and becoming increasingly difficult -- if not downright impossible -- to treat with our current stock of antibiotics and new pharmaceutical options are few and far between.

Join us on this episode of the Health and Wellness Show where we'll discuss how is it that what was once a boon for humanity has become a scourge. Does the responsibility lie with Big Pharma, Big Ag, family doctors or ourselves? Has the medical industry painted us into a corner or is the answer to antibiotic resistance to be found elsewhere?

Stay tuned for Zoya's Pet Health Segment where the topic is raisin toxicity in dogs.
