British Teachers Against Teaching Patriotism

Amidst the scary parts of the article is the encouraging fact that many British teachers are against "brainwashing" their students by teaching patriotism. Majority of teachers don't want to promote 'brainwashing' patriotism to pupils

It's an odd article, I'm not sure if I missed something or what, but it seems to jump from discussing teachers dislike of indoctrinating students to items about students tested on a number of things. It goes from the following comment by writer Fredercik Forsyth who dismisses fears of indoctrination:
Novelist and commentator Frederick Forsyth said: 'I wish these teachers would see that patriotism in the sense of that quiet pride is nothing to be afraid of. It's not aggressive. It doesn't put down foreigners. It doesn't noisily wave flags and it certainly doesn't swerve towards the BNP.'

And segues to this:
Pupils at a state comprehensive school are to be given therapy lessons by staff from a celebrity rehab clinic on drug addiction, anger management and eating disorders. Teachers at Notley High, Braintree, Essex, have teamed up with experts from the private Priory hospitals, which are better known for helping celebrities such as Amy Winehouse overcome their excesses. They have developed a programme of cognitive behaviour therapy to tackle issues including anger, low self esteem, eating disorders and drug addiction. Staff hope the voluntary lessons will help pupils avoid developing such problems in the first place.

Which is also scary of course.

England is doing some very weird things over there, and have been since 9/11. Which isn't a coincidence. Speaking of bizarre mind-op social engineering studies on students, I wrote about the use of UFOs and random shooter as a motif in My Teacher Was Abducted By Aliens: Preparation for Fake Disclosure? for UFO Digest in July.

On Naveed's Realm: "Was there a giant cephalopod in Devil's Lake?"

Naveed on his blog Naveed's Realm has an interesting item about the legend of the monster in Devil's Lake in Lincoln City, Oregon.
The short story as for as the Oregon one goes is that the Siletz Indian tribe centuries ago used to really like of the area of Devil's Lake. Then one night when a group of warriors was dispatched across the lake, massive tentacles burst forth from the waters destroying the canoes. The warriors where then flung around, beaten against the water and debris, and died from drowning or injury. From then on the lake was called Devil's Lake.

Was the "monster" a squid, or is the story only a myth to explain the dangers of the area?

Swine Flu Reactions Close to Home

A very good friend of mine, who I respect, vehemently disagrees with me about the swine flue vaccinations. This friend sees refusal to get vaccinated as, at best, irresponsible, even abusive to one's family and co-workers. I completely understand, and respect that point of view. I understand where she is coming from, given the context of her profession, and her love for her family. I also completely disagree with her. What makes it more difficult in these crazy faux apocalyptic times is that others in her family also disagree, which makes for highly uncomfortable tension and bad feelings. I don't know if my friend agrees that the swine flu propaganda is propaganda, hype, and a man made, intentionally released "bug" set loose in the world. (Where I see the swine flu plushie as a surreal piece of indoctrination she sees it as an educational tool or toy) I would assume if she did believe that, she'd be more reluctant to get vaccinated.

Not necessarily so, I guess. Someone I know believes, like I do, that the swine flu is all of the above, but even so, will get vaccinated. This person trusts the vaccinations: they are harmless. (This person also told me that someone close to them has a job where it's requited they get vaccinated. I wondered, but didn't ask, if that's legal. Something to look into.)

When things like this are close to home, it forces you to check your own position on things. People I love, care about and respect disagree with me, sometimes almost violently so, on issues. What to do in these cases? After thinking about my thoughts on the swine flu, thinking on their positions, I am left with: I still believe and think what I did before hearing their positions.

Fortunately, I am not faced with, like my close friend, a challenge to family harmony. I don't have children, and my husband and I share the same opinions. What if, however, we did have children, or our disagreements clashed so strongly we ... what? Separate? Divorce? Sounds silly, but imagine one spouse refusing to get vaccinated, while the other insists he/she does. I wouldn't want my spouse to risk getting killed or harmed from the vaccinations (not to mention the other insidious aftermaths of a semi-mandated, "practice run" program of propaganda) while he wouldn't want me to be exposed to the flu, or, expose others. Of course, if one is vaccinated, it wouldn't matter if someone else were vaccinated or not. I realize from their point of view it's not that simple, for every person vaccinated, many more are not, and they see those individuals as at risk for getting ill, particularly children.

(See a related article The ethics of vaccination, even though it concludes that getting vaccinated is a good thing.)

Speaking of swine flu matters close to home, here in the Pacific Northwest a swine flu outbreak hit a Washington state campus hard. Approximately 2,500 students came down with the swine flu. Swine flu hits Washington State Univ. Classes started August 24th.

Swine Flu Plushie!

Just when you think things couldn't get more surreal, well, they do. . .

You can buy a swine flu plush toy. Anything to get the message across that swine flu is your friend, even though it's your enemy. As long you get vaccinated. Twice. Maybe three times. No one knows yet. But in the meantime, you can cuddle up with Swiney until things get sorted out.
