Whoever Controls the Schools Rules the World

"One of the most useful tools in the quest for power is the educational system."

It's been said that "the philosophy of the classroom in this generation will be the philosophy of life in the next generation." 
Our earliest founding fathers understood this. That's why, after building homes and churches, they established educational institutions like Harvard, Yale, Columbia, and Dartmouth. Over time, most Christians have adopted the false premise that facts are neutral. They believe it doesn't matter who teaches math, science, and history, because facts are facts. The humanists took advantage of this type of thinking by gradually shaping and controlling education in terms of materialist assumptions. 
Whoever Controls the Schools Rules the World shows how education can be used as a vehicle for social change from Karl Marx and Adolf Hitler to secular humanism and radical Islam. Our worldview opponents understand that education is where the war of ideas is fought. If Christians are serious about securing the future for our children, they must understand the nature of the war we are fighting. If you have children, want children, or know someone who has children -- you need to get this book and read it before it becomes too late to save the generation to follow us from the ruins.

The goals of the humanists are clear and forthright. They hide nothing and demand everything. The humanist agenda has been relentless in its efforts to remake man and the world in the image of autonomous man. There is no compromise or lack of vision on their part. The humanist worldview is comprehensive. A concerted and planned effort has been made by humanist thinkers to capture the robes" of society by working for an ideological monopoly in the areas of education, law, science, and religion.

For too long, Christians have believed that an arena of neutrality and immunity exists where humanists and Christians can discuss issues based on an objective study of the facts. Unfortunately, the humanists never adopted the neutrality myth while they sold it to us at a very high price. While Christians have been sold the spoiled goods of neutrality, fair play, objectivity, toleration, and pluralism, the humanists have been promoting and implementing their worldview in every area of life while denying what they tell us we should believe.

It's unfortunate that many Christians still believe that neutrality is possible and that humanists strive to pursue objectivity in education. Nothing could be further from the truth. All facts are interpreted facts, and humanists want them interpreted without any regard for God and His Word.

Contrary opinions regarding the facts are not considered. The State has determined what the standard will be to interpret the facts. The humanists have understood this for a long time, so they made it their business to capture the robes of civil government so they could control the means of perpetuating their worldview. Humanist social theory has turned education into a god, a god that they now control. Laws are written and legislation enacted, all in the name of the misreading of the First Amendment, to shut out all rival religions. Taxes civil governments tithe (1 Sam. 8) are paid to the State in support of the State church: schools. (From the Introduction)
