The combination of state
control of medicine, drugs, food and education is quite
literally an act of organized bullying that may actually be
contributing to the growing epidemic of bullying that is
sweeping schools in many jurisdictions and many nations.
Interviews with several teachers of pre-teen students in one
region revealed that up to 75% of their students were
products of single parent homes, often with half-brothers
and half-sisters in the same classroom or same grade level.
Teachers admitted to spending most of their classroom time
dealing with behavioral problems instead of teaching
children the essential skills of reading, writing and math.
Research undertaken internationally into youth gangs
revealed that for most gang members, fathers were either
physically or emotionally absent in their lives. The gang
leader and fellow gang members often provide emotionally
what a father and/or older male relatives would otherwise
provide in a traditional or extended family. Gang members
who were interviewed individually after participating in a
gang activity such as a group assault or a gang rape
admitted to doing so to gain acceptance, approval,
validation, acknowledgement and recognition from their peers.
Several gang members even admitted to not enjoying such acts
and even to feeling degraded and dirty for what they had
Interviews with teenaged boys revealed one of the
motivations behind male school-aged bullying. The bully
achieved recognition and validation in the eyes of his peers
and other onlookers. During an earlier era, nobody else
joined into schoolyard fights between two protagonists. In
the modern era, friends of the bully join in the attack
against another child, for the same reasons as participants
in a gang rape. They do it to look good in front of their
peers. Research indicates that young boys who attend single
gender classrooms that are taught by male teachers for
several successive years have a very low propensity for gang
membership and low incidence of engaging in bullying
one time many years ago, all-boys schools—private schools
with all-male staff—existed in many countries including
parts of Canada. Then came the affirmative action laws that
encouraged feminist women teachers to challenge the hiring
practices of the all-boys private schools. Never mind that
the parents who paid tuition fees wanted their sons to be
taught by male teachers. The state intruded in what should
have been a private matter between a private provider of
services and its paying customers and ignored the fact that
the boys who attended these schools had mothers capable of
providing a feminine perspective in their lives.
boys who are compelled to attend government schools where
the male teacher is a vanishing breed, the only remaining
institution capable of providing male leadership happens to
be organized gangs. Police departments are becoming alarmed
that gang membership is increasing in many large cities.
State welfare policies that undermined the traditional
family structure has increased the population of fatherless
boys who will forcibly be vaccinated and immunized with
drugs of questionable efficacy after which many will be
prescribed anti-depressants that may come from the same
companies that provide the vaccines, the animal growth
hormones and the antibiotics. Many of them are potential
gang members in waiting.

award winning teacher
Gatto authored a book entitled Dumbing Down in which he
detailed the deficiencies of state schools, state schooling
and the state curricula that ultimately undermines students'
abilities to think critically. Given the nature of state
involvement in the numerous aspects of children's lives, it
should come as no surprise that there is an epidemic of
bullying underway in state schools.
