How to deal with North Korea: an approach not discussed in the mainstream media

One way to deal with North Korea, called the "Six-party talks", was already proposed and agreed on by North Korea, China, Russia, and even South Korea, but not agreed on by the U.S.A. and Japan.

In this plan, North Korea would be rewarded in steps, as it dismantles its nuclear program, cooling down its relationship with the outside world.

Once trade starts to happen and people find out about how great capitalism, they might want more of it, and in less than a decade, tear down their government.

A lesson from Syria: it’s crucial not to fuel far-right conspiracy theories | George Monbiot | Opinion | The Guardian

"PBS(skip to 5:18) and the Guardian, so far that I know of, have suddenly come out calling me a Holocaust denier and fake human rights activist. This libel started from Adam Holland back in 2014 and if I had the money I’d sue him. I addressed it back then and it seemed to go away but like a Ron Paul News letter they try to resurrect this garbage whenever they feel it’s convenient. The timing of this resurgence seems to be motivated by the state’s disdain that they failed in their plans for Syria. They blame this on Russian media and alternative media for debunking the war party’s lies in real time. The PR mistake for Vietnam was not controlling the networks. The PR mistake for the current wars has been the internet which allows access to foreign media. Of course the best they can do is try to call everyone they don’t like a Nazi.

Accusations like that are as bad as being called a rapist. In fact it’s worse because a rapist could probably still work in Hollywood or DC. The purpose of the smear is to smear networks I’ve been on like RT and any guests I’ve ever had on my show which would all be antiwar. The Guardian smear job called me a a Holocaust revisionist with the word revisionist is scare quotes, which implies denier. Ive never professed to be either one, my show is called the anti-neocon report and focuses on modern issues probably 90% of the time. But even more insulting than that was how they tried to lump me in with Alex Jones and David Duke. See Duke was on Alex’s show, Maram Susli was on Alex’s show and Ted Postol was on my show and referenced Susli, so by the magic of liberal logic I am now some how in with David Duke and Alex Jones. I don’t know anything much about David Duke other than he’s a white separatist and believes in racial determinism. He is one of those goofy bell curve types. And as terrible as all that is I found the Alex Jones association the most offensive, as even a bigot like Duke does not try to imply that no children died at Sandy Hook or the government is using “earthquake machines” to cause tsunami. He is relatively calm compared to the sack of hemorrhoids that is Alex Jones. I hate Alex Jones Deeply, and I have expressed that many times. He’s been to the woodshed, a series I do breaking people down, more than any other person. I can’t think of two people I am more opposite than these two capitalist of paranoia. The trite racist baloney is bad enough, but Jones is on a whole other level of stupid with his rants about Luciferian cults and inner dimensional psychic vampires. The guy has his following microwaving 20 dollar bills to destroy secret RFID chips. I can’t think of two characters who are more damaging to have on your team to poison the well and discredit everything you might say than Duke and Jones. One is a Racist the other is a mentally ill water filter salesmen pants-shitter-news addict. The government couldn’t invent a better pair to use as guilt by association weapons. Ive tried to debate both of these clowns and of course they are afraid to do it.

Here is what is really behind the Russia hate. Russia ruined the Zionists’ ambitions in Syria. That’s the topic the Guardian brought up. The covert ISIS supporters have lost in Syria and Iraq and they are very bitter. Without Russian air support and media the Assad must go crowd would not have been defeated. The mass media lost to alternative media.

Last July after meeting with Putin, Trump cut all CIA funding and covert support for moderate rebels, which we all know were just an inter-medium for ISIS. As recently as the battle for Raqaa the US was protecting their proxy forces and facilitating an escape for ISIS officers, mostly likely Saudi and Israeli assets.

Without US in the way, only the SDF or the B-Team proxies remain in Syria to attempt Balkanization which was also plan B. ISIS was effectively defeated in a matter of months, as I predicted, without Hillary, Kerry, and Obama running the State Department and Presidency.

American and British media tried as hard as they could to drive a wedge between Russia and themselves. Democrats even blamed Americans voting for Trump or in many cases just against Hillary, on Russia ‘hacking’ the election. By that they mean sharing some of Hillary’s dirty secrets to the public. You read that right. Instead of being mad at the crook they are mad at whoever told on them. This is why they will lose the next election too.

I’m surprised the US didn’t give ISIS helicopters and say oh but these are just for transportation, it’s non lethal aid. That’s what they did with scores of Toyota Hilux trucks. And you see ISIS all in the same brand truck all new all with the same paint job and the US media tries to play stupid as if ISIS built those trucks themselves or some car dealership just happened to have hundreds of white Toyota Hilux pickup trucks in mass ready to sell… those vehicles were already there because this insurrection was planned a long time ago it was not some organic protest or “Arab Spring” a fancy re-branding of color coded revolution.

All throughout the 80s the CIA in tandem with foreign governments like Israel used a variety of black markets such as weapon sales, narcotics, and contraband through the embargo on Iran, to covertly finance a proxy force of mercenaries in Nicaragua. It was called Iran Contra. The entire time, uniformly the government and media denounced the Contras as they were chopping off heads and hands and using child soldiers, and get this, they even executed an American journalist on TV. Sounds a lot like ISIS doesn’t it? Publicly the US was against the Contras. Congress would not allow the US military to invade Central America. Privately the US was training, arming, and financing the Contras the whole time. Tens of thousands of people were killed in the war and who knows how many died from the drug cartels the CIA turned into billionaires. Syria really is Iran Contra 2.0 only this time there was an Internet. We didn’t have to wait for a CIA plane to crash with illegal cargo. Also during this time the US had another proxy force in Afghanistan of freedom fighters now known as Al Qaeda. Also during this time the US had another proxy force in Afghanistan composed of freedom fighters now known as Al Qaeda. This was financed via Saudi money laundering through a series of regional banks and of course opium. It’s almost identical to today.

In Syria, Russia foiled the plot. Yet the West cannot openly say hey don’t kill ISIS and Al Nusra front, don’t kill Al Qaeda, those are our Rent-a-terrorist networks we’ve been using since the 80s. So they try everything from pussy riot to hacked elections to decrying Putin is the next Hitler, a favorite tactic of theirs, to cause distrust for Russian media. They are scared to death of a news source with wide dissemination that they can’t control.

I can tell you every time I’ve ever been on RT they did not tell me what to say or censor anything I said. I cannot say the same for other news outlets. So now I’ve got PBS and the Guardian two of the lesser bad MSM outlets calling me or alluding that I’m a Holocaust denier. WTF? I’ve been an antiwar and human rights advocate for my entire adult life.

Of the thousands of videos and audio interviews I’ve done only two guys ever talked about the holocaust from the revisionist side, David Cole Stein and Eric Hunt. Cole was an X revisionist who sincerely changed his mind as he cane upon new evidence. People still think he is faking that, people also think Sandyhook was faked so there is no controlling stupid. The plan was to have Cole and Hunt debate, and I would moderate as both would trust that I’d be fair. Well it never happened for reasons I currently lack the energy to explain, but suffice it to say, using Cole’s arguments to bolster my own, I actually converted Eric Hunt. That was mostly Cole’s research and my patience. (He doesn’t have much of that). It’s ironic, as a lifetime Zionist, and the Jew, people assume David Cole could have never been a revisionist. As a life time anti-Zionist people assume I’d be warm to revisionist. I wouldn’t say not wanting to throw people in jail equates to “OK so then you agree with holocaust denial,” either. I hate antifa and communism, I hate racial separatist and religious fanatics, and people who talk in the theater, but I don’t advocate throwing people in jail for what I consider to be just being stupid.

I do not deny ‘the’ Holocaust. I’m also not a revisionist. My forte in WWII is the Pacific Theater, I even live in Japan and speak Japanese. I do take issue with the word “the” in the Holocaust. How was nuking two civilian cities, (death by fire) not also holocausts? Was it because the allies did it? The US war machine has killed millions of people since WWII. The US is always looking and accusing people of being new Hitlers, it should look in the mirror. That is what I see is the real motive here to smear me. They are trying the degrees of Kevin Bacon tactic. This guy on this show had this other guy who knows a guy that said these bad things therefore every association he’s ever made is a Nazi who kicks puppies and robs babies. It’s guilt by association and fabrication.

If I had the money I’d sue them all. But the US and UK don’t really have a legal system for poor people. The initial capital it takes for a lawyer effectively disqualifies poorer people from risking litigation because it’s too expensive and based realistically on who has more money not on who has the better argument, aka is telling the truth. I am pretty sure that I am an expert on knowing what my own thoughts are, and I am not a Holocaust denier or revisionist.

Are Rothco's Battle Dress Uniforms (BDU's) a rip-off? Rothco vs Propper, TacticalGearTrade/, TruSpec, Ur-Tactical, AR500 Armor, Spartan Armor Systems, & Infidel BodyArmor. An open message to Rothco.

Rothco's either 65/45% polyester/cotton and 55/45% cotton/polyester Battle Dress Uniform coats, pants, and shorts cost $38.99 a piece, regardless of the color or camouflage pattern used (except for Smokey Branch, which costs $40.99 a piece, or MultiCam, which costs $99.99 for the blouse and $112.99 for the pants);

Now, that doesn't seem too unreasonable, does it?

But wait! Let's compare it to the offerings of other companies.

Propper, which costs ranging from $24.99 for 60/40% cotton/polyester BDU's to $29.99, and $29.99 for 100% cotton BDU's to $44.99 for 65/35% polyester/cotton A-TACS BDU's;

TruSpec, which costs $35.95 for the most part (including 100% cotton), $67.95 for MultiCam, and $53.95 for All Terrain Tiger Stripe.

Propper's Army Combat Uniforms, with 65/35% polyester/cotton and 50/50 NYCO/cotton MultiCam or A-TACS costing either $39.99, $54.99, $64.99 $69.99, or $79.99 a piece;

TruSpec's Tactical Response Uniforms (which appear to be copies of, or at least very similar to, ACU's), in which the MultiCam costs $84.95 a piece (except for the 1/4 Zip combat shirt, which the MultiCam costs $81.95 each);

Even TruSpec's TRU Xtreme line costs $100.95 a piece, which is still a better deal than what Rothco offers (TRU Xtreme pants are even cheaper than Rothco's MultiCam pants); offers individual camouflage pants and blouses that cost under $51 a piece (though warning, the quality, especially the durability, may not be very good, considering this is mostly sold to airsofters), which are made by Royal Military Surplus; sells uniforms sell for even less;

UR-Tactical is also selling Integrated Battle Shirts for $95 a piece, and their Advanced Response Pants cost $118 a piece, which is less than what Rothco sells their BDU pants for;

If you can, avoid clothing that contains polyester, since it can melt to one's skin if exposed to enough heat (such as in the cases of flames, explosions, etc).

Rothco also sells a polyester plate carrier for $89.99 a piece, and a MultiCam plate carrier made out of 1000 denier Cordua nylon for $172.99 a piece;

But other companies, such as AR500 Armor Plate Carriers, Spartan Armor Systems, and Infidel Body Armor offer plate carriers for comparable or even lower prices, and at higher quality at that; .

I feel like that Rothco mainly makes money on the wholesale market and selling generic products.
I cannot belive that Crye Precision allows Rothco to use their Multicam pattern on Rothco's overpriced products that have questionable quality.

Rothco, if you want positive reviews, then do one or more of the following to make deals better:
- Increase the quality of the products that you sell.
- Reduce the price to under that of your competitors.
- Sell bulk for very low prices.

If you want to spread this message, share this on social media and on forums.


Have you wondered why so many price tags end in .99? Well, this video explains that;

Note to regular blog readers;

I'm sorry that I haven't made a real post in weeks. There's a lot that I am working on, and due to homework and school projects, I probably will not be posting untill after November the 17th.

Andre/Andrew Anglin's interracial relationships, hypocrisy & possible blackmail

(The above image does NOT belong to me. It came from Ben Garrison's Exclusive Interview with Andrew Anglin, & please support Ben Garrison's work.)

A theory that I have as for why Anglin may be acting like this is the possibility that he may be blackmailed.
As explained in 
Andrew Anglin, White Supremacist who previously encouraged White male / Asian woman pairings as “reestablishing natural order”,
Anglin has been known to have sex with, or at least, be with, not only UNDERAGE &, hypocritically, NON-CAUCASIAN females (race-mixing is offically denounced on the DailyStormer), & made some sexual-sounding comments about a pubescent African girl.
And according to The Daily Stormer, neo-Nazi website, loses Icelandic web address in latest domain spat, Jens P├ętur Jensen said something along the lines of Anglin being unwilling to give his address out of concerns of law [enforcement] agencies finding out where he lives.

IF Anglin has one or more "handlers", maybe they took advantage of Anglin's sexual deviancy to have something to hold over his head. 
For example, if Anglin "spills the beans" on anything of importance, or otherwise displeases his handler(s), the media can bring attention to some of his more controversial sexual behavior & views. It is a confirmed fact that a lot of government agents & officials have sexual blackmail on them.

But I doubt this, considering how open Anglin was in the case of the picture of the pubescent girl earlier, & how his relationships is seemingly not much of a secret.

I've also seen a commented on one of the articles about a theory that Anglin is in the U.S. military, which explains how he travels around so much. But I doubt this too, as I have yet to see any evidence to directly support this & I do not know rather or not his behavior would be tolerated by military officers & the military police.

Is Putin truly a friend & defender of Christendom, Christians, Christianity & enemy of the Antichrist? Is Russia a true safe haven for Christian belifs, morals, & values, & a model for the west?

During my patrols on certain parts of the internet, I've seen a handful of people, usually related to alt-right, western nationalist, or paleoconservative circles praise Russia for things such as opposing the New World Order, & how the supposed rise of Christianity in Russia (& Eastern Europe) is saving Russian (& Eastern European) culture & how the West should embrace Christianity to save itself.

I'm here to respond to these views, provide facts on the matter, & provide commentary.

Part 1: What is Russia's & Putin's relationship with the New World Order?

In reality, Putin does NOT oppose the New World Order, NOR is he a White Nationalist. He is an authoritarian, & more or less, a Zionist. He is not quite as much of a sucker as, say, Hillary Clinton, John Mccain or Joe Lieberman, but he does not fully oppose the Israeli government's influence on the world.

Also, I'm sure that many on the socio-political alt-right & paleoconservative related circles value their right to free speech, religion, & right to keep & bear arms, & sticking to a country's constitution (& rightfully so).

In Russia, what I just described hardly really exists. 

James Corbett already described censorship in Russia, but the Russian constitution supposedly PROHIBITS censorship by the government (except for "propaganda or agitation instigating social, racial, national or religious hatred and strife" & "propaganda of social, racial, national, religious or linguistic supremacy", not that I agree with it) ( 
Russia even prohibits so-called "Rehabilitation of Nazism" (

Funny enough, it doesn't seem like MTV (which many American social conservatives dislike for their depiction of crime, gangs, drug use, & sexualisation) has been taken down in Russia (though I don't know how Russia's MTV compares to the U.S.'s).

In 2016, Vladimir Putin has also imposed quite a few restrictions on religious freedom, as explained in the article Is persecution returning for Russia’s Christians? – New laws make evangelism illegal.

You'll probably be surprised about Putin's relationship with Muslims (there are even Muslims who support Putin);
As ties with the West suffer, Russia embraces its east

Russia does NOT have a right to keep or bear arms. While I haven't found particularly strict weapon laws on irritant/inflammatory (ie pepper) spray, or melee weapons (ie knifes, batons), I have found strict laws on the elephant in the room: firearms.
Russian firearm laws are actually quite strict, & in some areas of regulation (especially the number of firearms one can privately own), are even stricter than some U.S. states & European countries ( While there is a group called Right to Arms in Russia, about 70% of Russians aren't seriously supportive of the right to keep & bear arms, & seem to be rather contempt with their country's firearm laws (
So Russia has "may issue" licenses, & limits one to owning up to 5 shotguns, 5 rifles & 5 trumatic guns (though I've read that someone said 2) combined, with heavy restrictions on handguns, short barreled shotguns & rifles, & machine guns. Most western countries are not that arbitrary.
Also, Russia has a gun ownership rate of about 8.9 per 100 individuals, which is relatively low & is comparable to, say, the United Kingdom (
Even countries such as Germany & Sweden, major culprits to cultural Marxism & outright stupidity, are better off than Russia in terms of firearms ownership rate.

Here are a few comments (some parts which I cut out) made by an individual named masterspaaaaark on the video New Cuban Missile Crisis, US and Russia Now In Standoff In Syria;

"Russian msm, which is controlled by government, already pushing propaganda that Trump is worse than Obama was. They do it to fool Russian people, because when people have outer enemy it's easier to manipulate them. Putin is building authoritarian state so his corrupt oligarchy friends could continue to exploit and rob Russia and it's people. I'm Russian and I know what I'm talking about. We already have less freedom than were in damn communist Soviet Union."

"Putin is the leader of Russian establishment and I really doubt that he will come to terms with Trump to de-escalate the Syrian conflict. The only hope is next presidential elections in Russia, but corrupt government will do anything to stay in charge and if Russian people won't overthrow it Russia will completely turn into dictatorship and world will face new cold war."

"Putin used to fight deep state 17 years ago when he became president for first time, but now he is a part of it. Putin escalates international conflicts to distract Russian people's attention from inner problems. Russian economics is dying because of oligarchs, and millions of people are facing poverty. Corrupt state clerks illegally taking people's property, but to keep high ratings Putin is making aggressive outer politics. He escalated Ukrainian conflict and MSM brainwashed people so Russians and Ukrainians started to hate each other, when Ukrainian situation started to became smoother Putin started Russian military campaign in Syria."

"I live in Russia and I see that shit with my own eyes. Putin abuses Russian people and escalates international conflicts to fool them. Also if you'd see Russian MSM you'd think the exact opposite way."

For icing on the cake, Russia is an observer state of the Organisation of Islamic Corporation.

Part 2: Is Russia (& Eastern Europe) really coming back to Christianity? How "morally Christian" do people in Russia statistically act?

According to, while Russians may be returning to religion, they aren't returning to church, and don't always return to Christianity.

According to, about 34% of Russians say that religion is important to them, which is actually on-par with the Netherlands (which is liberal about sexuality &, to a lesser degree, drug use), & lower than Germany & Canada at 40% & 42% respectively.

Substance use:
Russia, along with parts of eastern Europe, still has some of the heaviest alcohol consumption in the world (, & still suffers from heavy drug use (, & was once on the rise (

I'd also like to mention that Russia, despite how seemingly both the government & the people are gung-ho are about the drug war, actually decriminalized the possession of up to six grams of marijuana (& the transport of it) or two grams of hashish, & the cultivation of up to twenty plants ( Up to that amount is essentially a slap on the wrist (it's treated more like, say, having beer in public).
In that regard, Russia is actually more liberal than many western countries, & the line between criminalized & non-criminalized possession of marijuana is a gram higher than the Netherlands.
So in that sense, Russia is even more liberal than Sweden, the latter of which literally punishes people for having marijuana than people who have raped young kids (this is NOT an exageration).

Sexuality, sexually transmitted diseases & marriage:

Russia still has higher teen birth rates than some western countries (, has a higher presence of HIV/AIDS than some western countries (, & has the highest per-capita abortion rate in the world ( 
File:Teenage birth rate per 1000 women 15–19, 2000-09.svg

As for prostitution, it's treated like an "administrative" offense in Russia (which is treated like drinking beer in a public or being naked in public & is punished with a slap on the wrist), Romania & Slovenia does not criminalise it, & non-organised prostitution is perfectly legal in Poland, Hungary, & Slovakia (

While Russia has a high marriage rate, it still has the world's highest divorce rate & a fairly high divorce-to-marriage ratio (

As for allowing homosexuals to serve in the armed forces, Russia & many other eastern European countries allow homosexuals in their armed forces, some even have policies to specifically protect them.
These countries in alphabetical order are:
Albania, Bulgaria, Croatia, Estonia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Slovenia

Do you now really think that Russia & eastern Europe is becoming more Christian, especially with prostitution laws in some places being more liberal than San Francisco, California, where prostitution is absolutely illegal (even though it is the most liberal city in the United States of America), & socially conservative Russia being less religious than relatively liberal countries such as Germany & Canada?

I'm glad to see at least two or three comments on the article Vladimir Putin, Christian Crusader? that sees through the "Holy Russia" myth.

All of this is happening in a place that some people think is better off than the west becuase of Christianity. I'm not sure how much religion influences all of this, but I definitely know that culture & standard of living will. I belive that everything I just shown happens in places such as Russia & Eastern Europe becuase they are overall poorer than many of their western European or Scandinavian counterparts & a significant number of people 

Along with this, it is typical for people who are uneducated &/or (especially in the cases I'm talking about) going through hard times to turn to religion for comfort.

European culture actually started long before Christianity was established. Also, culture & religion are NOT the same things. There are many articles just about the differences between religion & culture.

Many people who truly supported liberty, such as Voltaire & some the Founding Fathers of the United States of America, were quite critical of religion, were deists, or at least supported a form of government other than hardline theocracy.

As for opposing the New World Order without religion or a religious theme, Syria is a secular country & still opposes the New World Order. Geert Wilders & the Party for Freedom (not that I agree with endorse their belifs) come across with a very nationalistic public image, but they're in one of the most sex-positive developed countries on the planet. 

Part 3: Is there a better way to save Western culture & the West? What should western society do to save itself & become great again?

It is not so hard when you get down to it. Here are 6 things that the west should do:

6. Have people boycott entertainment media that promotes stupidity & what is virtually anti-intellectualism.

5: Learn how to bring real change while avoiding violence. Also learn the non-agression & common ground principles.

(Also read When is violence justified? | StormCloudsGathering & Six Reasons Libertarians Should Reject the Non-Aggression Principle, the latter article of which gives detail, insight, & information not presented in the former article.)

4. Boycott the government schooling system & have children be educated by homeschooling.

3. Boycott the mainstream media & support the alternate media, & always support independent media that talks about issues of importance & does NOT sensationalise, promote wedge issues, or otherwise divide potentially educable people:
2: Support individual liberty with the keeping of rule of law & promote ethical philosophy. Giving government more power is the key to more tyranny.

1: Most importantly on a geopolitical scale, get western governments to stop messing with the world, bring our troops home, & overall, quit wasting money killing people. We can save a lot of tax dollars if we cut the interventions.

To go with this, cut-off unnecessary free-welfare programs, since they encourage laziness.

If you're concerned about demographic decline, if push came to shove, maybe governments should start paying people to have kids. I'm reluctant to do this considering how parenting isn't for everyone. However, using religion to reverse demographic decline can lead to situations in developing countries where they get overpopulated & parents are unable to provide for their kids, or otherwise provide a result other than what we would want.

The west should also promote economic freedom (hopefully you also already support this).

So in a nutshell:

1: Putin is NOT an enemy of the New World Order.
2: Retuning to Christianity will NOT save the west in of itself. Pragmatic philosophy would probably work better than superstitious faith. I would rather have people be cultural nationalists (Styxhexenhammer666 identifies as a "Civic Nationalist") than religious fundamentalists, even though I (along with people such as Ryan Dawson & Ron Paul) do not identify as any nationalist.
3: If one listens to the right sources, it should almost be a no-brainer to connect the dots & figure out how to save the West (& the World at large).

P.S: an article that inspired this one came from Russia Insider, which is a questionable source:

Ultimate education reform article list & video list. Problems with public education/schools, & how to fix them.

Part 1 will show the problems. Part 2 shows some ideas for solutions.

The video below is the most important one here, condensing almost all of the problems and solutions into a single 45 minute talk.

Summary: government schools waste time teaching concepts that have little real application for most people, and do so inefficiently with cookie-cutter style collectivized memorizing for tests.
For the most part, government schools do little to nothing to teach actual life-skills, such as growing a garden, fixing machinery, balancing a checkbook or making a healthy meal, or organizing and leading groups,  resolving conflicts nonviolently, and so on and so forth.
They certainly don't teach people logic, how to think for themselves .

Substance to back this summary up are in the videos and articles listed below.

Part 2: Solutions:

There is some talk about making public education better. But the real problem is HOW do we make education better?

Ideally, we'd have home-education for everyone. But, if that is not viably possible, then have school choice combined with charter schools, with maybe a few conditions to receive funding such as respecting student's rights, having a secular curriculum, teaching basic values and principles, and so on and so forth. 
That would force competition becuase now for schools to receive students and funding, they must perform well. A school can't hold a monopoly over a rotting ghetto just becuase of geography (which I find to be terribly unfair to the poor); the kids in that ghetto have an option to go to the same school with the kids from the snobby top-upper-middle class kids in the nice part of town that give a hoot about successful, efficient teaching that truly prepares kids for the future.

Along with this, offer more vocational and apprenticeship types of problems and look at on-the-job training as an alternative to inadequate Jack-of-all trades (more like a Master-of-nothing) style to teaching, which is shown to not work.

Yes, this can cost some money in the short term, particularly with transportation. 
But what will cost more money in the long term? Kids today being apathetic about learning becuase they're made to memorize minutia that has little to no real-life application to the extent that they learn very little that will be useful to their futures, and a lot of potential that these people had when they were little kids is wasted, plus a culture of ignorance, anti-intellectualism and apathy towards real philosophy, vaules, and principles. Along with that, an ignorant society that sorely lacks creativity, intellect and deep critical thinking.

Also, be sure to pay teachers fairly for what they do, and encourage freedom to experiment with teaching styles and allow teachers to individualize (such as having a kid read a book that they are interested in and doing work that is on their level and at their pace).

Encourage that people send their kids to schools that follow the Montessori model, which solves many of these problems.
