TD 2: Alex Newman – Death by Indoctrination: The Role of Education in Shaping Global Strategy

“The people who dreamed up this system, the people who implemented this system, the people who reformed this system, to turn it from what it was into what it is today, always had a plan. And that plan always was, from the very beginning, to undermine the christian faith, to undermine the family, to undermine biblical principles, like private property, like the free enterprise system, like the nuclear family, like the purpose of government.” – Alex Newman

On the first episode of the Thinking Dad Podcast, host Garritt Hampton and guest Alex Newman, founder of Liberty Sentinel Media, uncover the shocking depths of indoctrination in public schools. Explore the troubling ties between Marxist ideologies and public education, learn about historical experiments that redefined reading instruction with devastating effects, and uncover the global strategy to standardize education. This discussion sheds light on John Dewey’s influence, the gradual socialist shift impacting American families, and the strategic role of UNESCO in reshaping global education norms. Learn why the system isn’t just failing—it’s succeeding at its original purpose. Educate yourself about alternatives like homeschooling and what you can do to fight back against the indoctrination of our youth.
