Absolutely.

Controlling media, courts, education, so-called science (only the ones that agree with them), banning religion is how they are imposing their will or the exact same playbook as any totalitarian regime such as Nazy Germany.

Cardboard

Who is controlling what? 

Media...liberals...probably. 

Courts...last I checked Trump had stuffed the Supreme Court with his picks. 

Education...United States still has the best universities/colleges in the world, as well as research. 

Science is science...you can argue that gravity does not exist, but it is proven that it does...unlike God! 

Which brings me to religion...over 73M voted for Trump...78M voted for Biden...are you really going to argue that Trump is the minority and there is no religious freedom in the U.S.? 

Finally money...who controls most of the wealth in the United States...liberals?!  Stick your crap about fascism where the sun don't shine.  Cheers!

I agree with cardboard on this. Certainly elementary has been bastardized as they no longer can fail kids out and there is no discipline. My one kid was actually complaining about that today.  The focus is on the trouble kids and the others get nothing.  We actually had a teacher tell us to teach our kid at home because the class had too many problem kids.

I'm a bit off topic from original post but I think this shows how left group think infiltrates our school system.

I don't know if this is a regional thing or what, but my nephew who is five, goes to an elementary school in the fastest growing region in North America...completely multicultural...and all of the issues good and bad he faces today, are no different than 30 years ago...other than the pandemic. 

My nieces both in Canada and the U.S. have all gone through the public school system in various states and provinces...same problems as 30 years ago.
 The older ones all are going to college or have graduated college...the younger ones are progressing at the same pace as the older ones.  And all of their schools face challenges of lack of funding, crowded classes, overuse of portables, socio-economic issues, bullying, etc.

So this so-called bastardization of schools...either it isn't happening, or it's regional.  Cheers!

It is different.  30 years ago kids weren't allowed to just roam the class and distract other children.  After school, recess, sure that is probably the same.  In the classroom no it isn't.  In the past kids could be held back, now they can't.  Kids could be disciplined, that doesn't seem to happen now.  We can agree or disagree on whether it's the right direction but the school system has definitely changed.

Again, I don't know if this is regional, but this is not my experience or what I've seen here in Vancouver, the surrounding region, or other regions where I have family.  Here kids can be held back...they are exposed to detention period/corrective actions...they talk and goof around in class just like me and my class did 40 years ago.  Cheers!

I agree.  There are problems with the schools, but it isn't what most conservatives think they are.  If anything the schools have become even more prison like than they were before.   With police and locked doors.  When I was in high school the students had a smoking area where we used to smoke a variety of things, I used to leave school at lunch time and often never come back.  The doors weren't locked and there were no cops in the halls.

That is one thing that has changed even here in Canada...the preparation of classes for mass shooters...and that's a result of greater accessibility to guns that can do more damage than 40 years ago when I went to school.

The worst thing we had to worry about was a knife or pedophiles following us home.  Today, dangerous drugs and guns are also something my nephew and nieces have to contend with. 

And I agree with the conservatives here...gun restrictions and registries don't do any good if they are not effective...and they are not enforced.  Cheers!

Anyone else find it hilarious to see these lefties losing their minds over Apples App store stipulations yet at the same time praise Twitter, FB, and Google for being private companies who should be allowed to censor and do what they want.
