He who controls the past controls the future – He who controls the present controls the past


 

According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary (online version, March 25, 2014) mathematics is a noun defined as follows:

Mathematicsmath-ˈma-tiks, ˌma-thə-\

: the science of numbers, quantities, and shapes and the relations between them

Full Definition of MATHEMATICS
1
: the science of numbers and their operations, interrelations, combinations, generalizations, and abstractions and of space configurations and their structure, measurement, transformations, and generalizations
2
: a branch of, operation in, or use of mathematics <the mathematics of physical chemistry>

Meanwhile in the messed up educational world leading Illinois – according to Chicago Teachers Union president Karen Lewis seems to be pushing Common Core towards its logical conclusion in her statement – Math should be taught in school using Progressive Liberalism Propaganda instead of as a fact based science. It sounds as if Lewis is attempting to reprise the Richard Burton role of O’Brien from the movie “1984” , based on the book of the same name by George Orwell.

 

“He who controls the past controls the future. He who controls the present controls the past.”
― George Orwell, 1984

“They who control your children controls the future. They who control your schools control your children  thoughts. “
