There was a song performed by Sam Cooke popular in late 1950s, early 1960s entitled Wonderful World. It was written by Sam Cooke, Lou Adler and Herb Alpert and was a rather catchy little song.If was on Sam Cooke’s debut album in 1958 and released as a single in 1960. The lyrics are a list of all the things that the guy does not know:
Don’t know much about history
Don’t know much biology
Don’t know much about a science book
Don’t know much about the French I took
Don’t know much about geography
Don’t know much trigonometry
Don’t know much about algebra
Don’t know what a slide rule is for
The conclusion to each verse is:
But I do know that I love you
And I know that if you love me too
What a wonderful world this would be
What does this have to do with the government schools? Well, in our society children are no longer taught anything of value, including proper behavior. They are not taught any hard, factual subjects, as witness the abysmal test scores. They are taught feel-good, social agenda crap that has no bearing on real life. The only purpose for this pap is to raise another generation of government dependant idiots. Please note that most of the top politicians and their children do go to decent schools. Schools of privilege and wealth. Private, non-government schools. Check the number of Harvard, Yale, or equivalent grads in the upper levels of government. Do realize that the normal public school grad cannot even begin to qualify for entrance into these schools.
The conclusion of each verse is equally relevant. The only thing that children are taught in this hyper-sexualized society is that if your crotch itches, you are in love and must scratch that itch. And it is socially acceptable to scratch your crotch itch with whatever will satisfy it. Man, woman, child, animal, old, young or whatever. Restraint is not in the vocabulary. Particularly self-restraint. Heaven forbid we should restrain sexual predators. Decent behavior is not in the vocabulary.
Yeah, this theme song is an oldie but goodie that is still relevant today.
