The European Union governing block thinks there is too much “Euroscepticism”, i.e., EU citizens have a lack of understanding or—gasp!— oppose the EU. So, next week the European Parliament will consider a plan entitled Leaning EU in Schools to cultivate a positive view by teaching children good things about the EU. It is expected to be approved.

EU trying to introduce mandatory classes about the bloc into school curriculum

The “Learning EU in Schools” report, seen by the Telegraph, calls on member states to “encourage and facilitate high-quality training on EU topics for teachers, other educational staff, youth leaders and trainers” and the creation of a ʻEuro Teacherʼ label award.

That “Euro Teacher award” rings familiar bells about Hero of the Soviet Union awards.

As always when ideas to control the masses are unpopular with the masses, the underlying reason is deemed to be insufficient knowledge about the greatness and goodness of their leaders. The people have to be made to understand for the good of all.

Winston Churchill: “The empires of the future are the empires of the mind.”

Winston Smith (1984): “…it was all right, everything was all right, the struggle was finished. He had won the victory over himself. He loved Big Brother.”

    Fascists learned that sending people to a reeducation camp was obvious. So, bring the reeducation camp to the people, et voila, fraternite. Here’s your ticket, now get on board, destination unknown. They can make the trains run on time.
