The first Reinvention of
America system I looked at was the education system. There is no
better - and no more obvious system of public policy for private
profit than the "reformed" education system. In a letter to Hillary
Clinton, the author wrote a conceptual design for a system that is
actually a government management system for the labor market. If it
had been a corporate system for corporate personnel, I would have
thought nothing of it. But as a government system for the people of
this country, my reaction was shock and horror. This is a system
like they would implement in the Soviet Union or East Germany. It is
designed for lifetime control of "human capital".
Government computer systems are always authorized in law so the
first thing I did was to work backwards from the legislation that I
knew about that was authorizing for the 'Human Resource Management
System' and I produced a timeline of education legislation to see if
what I read in the letter was really true and to see the steps that
were taken to build it because large scale computer systems are
always built in phases over many years. Of course nationalization of
the education system tracks back to Lyndon Johnson and his 'Great
Society' (also called the 'Big Society' in the UK) but that's not
the start of the computer system. The start of the federal takeover
of education leading into management of the labor market began with
the report titled, "Nation at Risk".
A Commission was appointed with the publically stated purpose to
being to study American schools because "people were concerned". If
you know how to read reports like this, it's obvious that the real
purpose was to begin the project to build a national computer system
on the schools - beginning with a statistical system and to set the
stage for a new market in computers for classrooms.
"Our recommendations are based on the beliefs that everyone can
learn, that everyone is born with an urge to learn which can be
nurtured, that a solid high school education is within the reach of
virtually all, and that life-long learning will equip people with
the skills required for new careers and for citizenship."
Lifelong learning is lifelong management and control. And that is a
classic example of the bifurcation of rhetoric. It's the bifurcation
of rhetoric that is causing the cognitive dissonance across our
nation. Politicians pass along the marketing language and it's not
clear that the majority of them even understand what they are saying
- but the words sound good and they are what people want to hear.
The programs that are being sold to the public are something
different in the detail which is why politicians can never keep
their promises and why things never get better, they only get worse.
the report, Nation at Risk, people in the education community see
what they expect to see because they think the report is about
improving the quality of education but embedded in the report is the
justification for and the initial requirements for the labor
management computer system plus, they were setting the stage for
subsequent phases of the project.
From the report:
We recommend...e) one-half year of computer science.
5. The teaching of computer science in high school should equip
graduates to: (a)the computer as an information, computation, and
communication device; (b)the computer in the study of the other
Basics and for personal and work-related purposes; and (c)the world
of computers, electronics,
and related technologies.
That part was fine - and just about right in terms of computer
education. But here is where the problem starts:
3. Standardized tests of achievement (not to be confused with
aptitude tests) should be administered at major transition points
from one level of schooling to another and particularly from high
school to college or work. The purposes of these tests would be to:
(a)the student's credentials; (b) the need for remedial
intervention; and (c)the opportunity for advanced or accelerated
work. The tests should be administered as part of a nationwide (but
not Federal) system of State and local standardized tests.
2. Instruction in effective study and work skills, which are
essential if school and independent time is to be used efficiently,
should be introduced in the early grades and continued throughout
the student's schooling. (Note: it wouldn't have been known at the
time, but when they said "work skills", they literally meant "work"
skills - not education, but training for servitude in the labor
4. In addition, we believe the Federal Government's role includes
several functions of national consequence that States and localities
alone are unlikely to be able to meet: protecting constitutional and
civil rights for students and school personnel; collecting data,
statistics, and information about education generally; supporting
curriculum improvement and research on
teaching, learning, and the management of schools; supporting
teacher training in areas of critical shortage or key national
needs; and providing student financial assistance and research and
graduate training. We believe the assistance of the Federal
Government should be provided with a minimum of administrative
burden and intrusiveness.
5. The Federal Government has the primary responsibility to identify
the national interest in education. It should also help fund and
support efforts to protect and promote that interest. It
must provide the national leadership to ensure that the Nation's
public and private resources are marshaled to address the issues
discussed in this report.
According to a Frontline report on PBS, Lou Gerstner as President of
American Express, as CEO of RJR Nabisco and as CEO of IBM was a
major force behind the plan to build the "Human Resource Management"
System of lifelong enslavement.
"In 1995, the National Governors Association invited Louis V.
Gerstner Jr., the chief executive officer of IBM, to speak at the
group's annual meeting in Burlington, Vt. Gerstner had long been
involved in education reform, both as president of American Express
in the 1980s and as CEO of RJR Nabisco before taking the helm at IBM
in 1993. With a captive audience of state governors, he took the
opportunity to deliver a challenge. "You are the CEOs of the
organizations that fund and oversee the country's public schools,"
he said. "That means you are responsible for their health. They are
very sick at the moment."
That last sentence reminds of something I heard a western governor
say recently and I think it was preceded by an a statement that he
was the CEO of his state. He said, "our job is to edjacate,
medicate, and incarcerate". Very catchy and very wrong - but we see
where he got it.
So at this point, we know that American Express was the driving
force behind the establishment of the World Trade Organization that
has destroyed our economy and that Louis Gerstner was in a power
position at American Express at the time. We now know that Louis
Gerstner was the behind the educational "reforms" for the last 30
years that have built a system that is being transformed into a
system of Soviet polytechnical education with the children being
taught "worker skills" and and that the "reforms" are a computerized
system of management of the labor market that will make slaves of
America's children. There can be no doubt that public policy has
been set for private profit and that the "Reinvention of America" is
to turn this country into feudal state run by Lords of the Empire. [
Anybody have a wooden stake for this vampire?]
There are many components to the 'Human Resource Management System'
(HRM) but all you really need to do is to picture a corporate
personnel system and in the same way, the corporate management
decides your fate within the corporation. It is the people who
maintain the databases and who write the search engines for jobs and
candidates that will control the labor market and by controlling the
labor market, they can control the price and supply of labor. The
following is a simplified diagram of the HRM. Look for the HOTSPOTS
on the diagram for more information:
The irony is that the Nation at
Risk report said this:
'If an unfriendly foreign power had attempted to impose on America
the mediocre educational performance that exists today, we might
well have viewed it as an act of war."
The truth is... the REALITY is that an unfriendly foreign power did
impose a mediocre education system on us and it was the very same
people who wrote the report. That unfriendly foreign power is
corporate America led by people like Louis Gerstner and now Bill
Gates. They established public policy for private profit. The above
One Stop System is a slave management system. The American people
will not have control over their own destiny because the system is
interlocking, cradle-to-grave, total domination.
And *** Breaking News *** from the U.S. Department of Labor relieves
me of the burden of continuing to try and prove to you the national
takeover of the labor market. And you can see the bifurcation of
rhetoric in the press release.

US Department of Labor awards more than $12 million for 13 states to
build workforce databases
Grants to improve analysis of workforce program impacts
WASHINGTON — The U.S. Department of Labor today announced $12.2
million to 13 states through the Workforce Data Quality Initiative.
These funds will enable states to build or expand longitudinal
databases of workforce data that also link to education data. States
will use these longitudinal databases to conduct research and
analysis aimed at pinpointing the effectiveness of employment and
training programs to better inform workforce system customers.
"These grants are an important part of the administration's efforts
to increase the availability and use of high-quality data," said
Secretary of Labor Hilda L. Solis. "By developing and improving
databases, states will help those seeking training make better
informed decisions, all while more clearly demonstrating the link
between employment and education in the long-term success of
States will achieve multiple goals during the three-year grant
period. Among these are developing or improving state workforce
longitudinal data systems with individual-level information;
enabling workforce data to be matched with education data to create
longitudinal data systems; improving the quality and breadth of the
data in the workforce data systems; using longitudinal data to
provide useful information about program operations; analyzing the
performance of education and training programs; and providing
user-friendly information to consumers to help them select the
training and education programs that best suit their needs.
Funding will be used by 11 states to expand and improve linkages
between education and employment in existing longitudinal databases.
These include Florida, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts,
Missouri, North Dakota, Ohio, South Carolina, Texas and Virginia.
Two additional states, Louisiana and Minnesota, will develop and
implement new systems.
This grant opportunity stems from the administration's focus on
access to high-quality data and is a sister initiative to the U.S.
Department of Education's Statewide Longitudinal Data Systems
project that is designed build longitudinal education databases.
