Philadelphia city council wants socialism taught in schools

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin

Socialism is already taught - and advanced - in many of our public schools, though it is rarely identified as such. Having spent time reading my daughter's school textbooks during the past few years, a bias toward the Progressive worldview is more than casually evident, especially in social studies and history.

Howard Zinn's ouevre lowers the bar for overt ideological cheerleading, specifically in support of Marxist revolutionary thought and agitation. I would suggest that for city councilors to promote such a polemic as a grade school textbook might properly be viewed as a species of child abuse. 
Liberalism isn't really about making the world a better place. It's about reassuring the elites that they are good people for wanting to rule over it.
