Am I possibly exaggerating?

(Taken from CubaDebate)

AFTER referring on August 17 and 18 to the book by Daniel Estulin which relates with irrefutable facts the horrible way in which the minds of youth and children in the United States are deformed by drugs and the mass media, with the conscious participation of the U.S. and British intelligence agencies, in the final part of the last Reflection I stated: “It is terrible to think that the intelligences and sentiments of children and youth in the United States are mutilated in that way.”

Yesterday, the news agencies communicated information that emerged from a study published by Beloit University, which notes facts occurring for the first time in the history of the United States and the world, associated with the knowledge and habits of U.S. university students who will graduate in 2014.

Granma daily reports on the news in eloquent language:

1. “They do not wear watches to tell the time, but use their cell phones.”

2. “They believe that Beethoven is a dog that they know from a movie.”

3. “That Michelangelo is a computer virus.”

4. “That email is ‘too slow,’ accustomed as they are to sending messages on

sophisticated mobile phones.”

5. “Very few of them know how to write in cursive.”

6. “They believe that Czechoslovakia never existed.”

7. “That U.S. companies have always done business in Vietnam.”

8. “That Korean automobiles have always circulated in their country.”

9. “That the United States, Canada and Mexico have always been bound by a

Free Trade Agreement.”

It leaves one cold on seeing to what point education can be deformed and prostituted in a country that has more than 8,000 nuclear weapons and the most powerful war arsenal in the world.

And to think that there are still sane people capable of believing that my warnings are exaggerated!
