John Taylor Gatto at the 2009 Liberty Forum

John Taylor Gatto brings to light the extent to which children have been enslaved by our current educational system and how this system has been used as a tool to enslave us all.

It's a long talk and his voice is going so it's not always easy to hear but I felt it was worthwhile to listen to the end. It was moving to see his reaction to his own talk - I seemed to be in tears after finishing it.

The Ultimate History Lesson

I'm still in the middle of listening to this 5 hour talk. So far, it is about the history of control of people through the educational system.

I love John Taylor Gatto. I think he defines the act of love as empowering others through real education. There's a 16 minute introduction.
