Re: [humanism-174] teaching critical thinking

ushering is a good word to describe it. shepherding is another. It's just standard psyops.
backwards record thing is called back-masking.
It was practiced and popularized by The Beatles.
The reason they do it is the same as why we here drive on the opposite side of the road and read from left to right rather than right to left.

It's some pretty cool information. What you're seeing is the hype spin being putting on their generation. Why I do not know. The other Ws like who, where, when etc are easy.

Watch the movie The Man Who Would be King for reference material.

I guess every generation needs its silliness! Us semi-old timers had the "Paul is Dead" conspiracy & the "satanist" messages from groups like Led Zeppelin that one had to spin records backwards to "hear"!

What I'm referring to specifically is the belief among my students that Kanye West and Jay-Z are somehow running the illuminati, that they were responsible for Tupac's death and a host of other things, and that somehow they are ushering in a new world order.

Illuminati symbolism is real. The intention behind it is what is in question.

I sent this to the Cleveland skeptics list and I figured I would share it here too.
.................

So every year as part of my OGT reading intervention class I do a  unit on critical thinking.

It's amazing that kids can be skeptical of outlandish claims on one hand and then so easily believe things as ridiculous as the hip-hop illuminati conspiracy on the other.

if you're not familiar with it you really should google it for laughs. It's a twisted jumble of seemingly random unrelated and unjustifiable claims.

Right now I'm looking for some kind of a cogent debunking of it online that I can share with my kids.
