Destablizing commonly accepted norms, erasing history, divorcing children’s grasp of the world from their parents’, complicating the simple and terse, re-defining words, the denial of certainty or any objective reality, a permanently vague state of confusion and anxiety: all old reliable weapons for a full-scale Leftist assault on society. Common Core only the latest. Saul Alinksy, Stalin and others are smiling from their warm place. Their successors are rubbing their hands. See if these don’t make your hair hurt and your head ache. Orwell is saying See? I Told You So.
