Why aren’t electoral systems taught in schools?
By General Maddox
A recent Brisbane Times opinion piece written by Australia’s youngest Federal MP Wyatt Roy has raised a good point and calls for our electoral systems to be added to the national school curriculum.
So why isn’t it there already?
Shouldn’t we all know how it all works? After all we live in a country where voting is compulsory and considered a civic duty. One of the freedoms to choose who shall represent us that many fought and sacrificed their lives to protect. I too will admit that I don’t know enough about it and my guess is that I’m not alone.
According to MP Roy even his loyal constituents get it wrong. A lot! He recalls an encounter with an elderly voter who admitted that for the last fifty years she had been voting incorrectly which lead to her vote being invalidated.
To quote Shakespeare… “Aye, there’s the rub”.
Our political system is set up to be 2 major parties. Just like in the USA and many other countries. That’s by design. That’s the way the oligarchs want it. The social engineers know what makes us tick. To put it simply, the basis of Hegelianism dictates that the human mind can’t understand anything unless it can be split into two polar opposites. Good / Evil, Right / Wrong, Left / Right. Same goes for our political system. Two opposing sides that are in fact nearly identical and both sides carrying out the agenda of their puppet masters.
The people get sick of one party screwing them over and the other party comes to the rescue only to screw you over just the same. It’s two sides of the same coin.
This system survives by two things. 1) the public voting for one of the two major parties each time and 2) the public throwing their votes away by not completing their electoral vote correctly. The latter is a way for the big power brokers to stay in power and rarely give the smaller parties or independents any chance of gaining any sort of representative political power.
But how is this achieved?
Easy. Don’t teach the public how the electoral system works. Not properly at least.
MP Wyatt Roy may be having delusions of grandeur. But his young naive heart seems to be in the right place. Schools should be teaching the future generations about the very systems that are controlling us. It’ll never happen. But they should nonetheless.
It’s a sort of ‘you get what you pay for’ scenario. Keep public schools underfunded, lower the bar for student academic achievements and… wait for it….teach the teachers how to teach the way the social engineers want them to teach.
This is why the Laboral party will win the next election and the one after that. And the one after that. And the one after that. Etc… Etc… Etc.
