The Triumph of the Nanny-State: Lock-down those classrooms or I’ll hit you with my heroic lunch-box

By ann summers


A Second Grader in Widefield, CO, was subjected to investigation and evaluation after he responded to an assignment as to what he saw in the clouds by drawing a gun. (2014)



Equipping teachers with firearms is simply not enough, the banking theory of education, like any McDuck money-bin needs to protect k-12 human capital from dangerous thoughts and even worse images because media effects on (pollo) loco parentis.

An entire Millennial generation of underachievers and their texting while driving is testimony to the power of media to pollute uncritical minds just as tonight Sarah Palin will interview Donald Trump much like Frost-Nixon, and on the cable channel that thinks Fox News is too liberal. Imagine that media effect. Quantum Singularity and Symbolic Violence together again!

“The dress code we have established requests that the children not bring violent images into the building in any fashion – on their clothing (including shoes and socks), backpacks and lunch boxes,” the letter continues. “We have defined ‘violent characters’ as those who solve problems using violence. Superheroes certainly fall into that category.”

  1. Brandi would have stayed in trouble if her school had such a policy. She had a huge collection of favorite t-shirts she had collected from highland games and Scottish musical groups. Her favorite t-shirt was from the Black Watch Royal Highland Regiment, AKA “Ladies From Hell.” She had several.

    “An entire Millennial generation of underachievers and their texting while driving is testimony to the power of media to pollute uncritical minds . . .”

    Much like your unfocused prose.

    Are you one of these “Millennials”? Your posts read as such. You confuse cleverness with the inability to sustain a sentence.

    Just out of curiosity, how come you are so critical of people? We are all trying to do our best or least I think we are. She is not writing to win a Nobel Prize, she is just posting her observations.

    Why don’t you post something on flowers for Socrates?

  5. Adding to what Bron said, we do have a policy for guest blogs.

  6. Contrary to what some might have thought, this is a community forum. Members of said community are encouraged to participate. Agreement with any particular author or poster’s politics or polemics is not required.

    The Rules for posters are simple. They also apply to guest bloggers. Even for regular authors there are only a couple of additional rules they need to follow.

    If you have an idea for a column? Don’t worry about agreement. Write it up.

    We want to hear about it.

    We definitely need more broadness that is also more unfocused prose in this community forum.
