Promote Ignorance Says the NY Times

An article in the NY Times by Natasha Singer (dated curiously as June 27, 2017) pushes the thesis that Americans should not educate their children if that education provides benefits to the business community.  This article is a clear expression of the anti-capitalistic ethic and anti-American ethic of the NY Times and its writers.

The main thrust of this article is that Silicon Valley has been providing significant funding to American public schools to promote the development of "coding" skills.  That, apparently, borders on the criminal, according to Ms. Singer, since Silicon Valley itself might benefit if more Americans had coding skills.

Ms. Singer, I suspect, probably doesn't approve of teaching Americans to read or write either, since, heaven forbid, American companies might derive some benefit from an educated populace.  Better to keep people ignorant and lacking in skills, so goes Ms. Singer's thesis, so that no business can derive any benefits from hiring Americans.

Ms. Singer would then, one supposes, argue that we need to bring in millions of new immigrants, legal or otherwise, from countries that despise Americans and let them do the coding and fill the jobs that we wish to deny young Americans.  That solves both of Ms. Singer's and the left's main agenda -- eliminating jobs for Americans and bringing massive number of immigrants to America who despise our customs, history and can't speak our language.

The NY Times definitely has an agenda and this article makes it loud and clear.
