Nazi Germany--and any "successful" military state--always militarizes its schools, uses fear and intimidation campaigns, and glorifies soldiers.
Thanks to L.A.'s principled students, the U.S.'s morphing into the Fourth Reich just hit a bulwark:
"And proof eventually came, and so did Steve Zimmer’s remarkable acknowledgment that militarizing the school police force had been a mistake, wrecking that invisible and crucial quality called trust — wrecking the school system’s relationship with the communities it served."
Thanks for pointing this out, Mr. Koehler:
"The apology was an acknowledgement — oh, so painfully rare in 21st century America — that real order isn’t a matter of armed domination. It was an acknowledgment that education requires trust and trust is annihilated by the appearance of a military dictatorship."
Too often what passes for foreign aid is little more than the supply of weaponry. In other words, so-called aid just fattens the coffers of U.S. weapons' developers and makers.
From the article:
"Apparently the only assistance coming from the national government is military. There is zero peace consciousness at this level, zero guidance except to prepare for war."
