Dean Gotcher, a Christian expert in education and psychology, spoke on Thursday, June 9 at the First Presbyterian Church in Columbia about how children are being indoctrinated with secular values in the public school system and society, while parental authority is simultaneously being destroyed. Times Examiner readers know that America is on the verge of destruction, and although we may not understand why, Gotcher documents that we have been infiltrated, and he connects the dots by naming the perpetrators. He said that in the 1950s, education shifted to focus on relationships and feelings. Gotcher credited Benjamin Bloom’s classic book Taxonomy of Educational Objectives which has negatively influenced our educational system since it was written in 1956. Its continuing legacy has spawned dysfunctional curricula such as Common Core. Certified teachers and accredited schools must follow Bloom’s methodology, which strives to destroy patriarchal and God’s authority over the child.
Bloom was a “Transformational Marxist,” as opposed to a “Traditional Marxist.” Some of the former group escaped Nazi Germany by immigrating to America in the 1930s, where they injected their beliefs into professional fields here, such as education, corporate management and government. These Marxists were members of the “Frankfurt School” which included both Theodor Adorno and Erick Fromm, who influenced Bloom.
Gotcher has read over 600 psychological books and he explained how these psychological principles operate. Transformational Marxists use group psychology to unite the individual and group to form “consensus,” thereby destroying individualism along with patriarchal and Godly authority. This is much more subtle than Traditional Marxists, who simply use brute force to install a Marxist regime in a country, as they did in Russia. Gotcher said that one reason the Soviet Union eventually failed was because everyone was worried about what everyone else thought of them (“political correctness”). As an example of their beliefs and goals, Marxist Ervin Laszlo wrote “Bypassing the traditional channels of top-down decision making, our objective centers upon transforming public opinion into an effective instrument of global politics.”
Now in our society, rather than letting the Bible evaluate us, we evaluate the Bible. Gotcher said that the Protestant Reformation, wherein man stands alone with the truth, stopped man’s evaluation of God and rejected Aristotelian thought. Max Horkheimer (director of the Frankfurt School) wrote “Protestantism was the strongest force in the extension of cold rational individualism.” Transformational Marxists have reversed the Reformation and produced schools that teach children to follow their feelings, with the result that they will eventually hate authority from both their earthly father and Heavenly Father. After an extended period of time without an authority figure to tell them “no,” ultimately they will lose their conscience. Gotcher said that the modern school system is based upon groupthink, and sending your child to public school will result in the group figuratively killing your child unless he conforms. Eventually the child will come home from school angry and rebellious towards the parents. Destroying individualism and promoting politically-correct groupthink means that the rare “negative” individuals who speak the truth, e.g. whistleblowers, politicians, preachers, etc. are no longer welcome in society.
Transformational Marxism to produce consensus in our society cannot work without a facilitator to bring different factions together, because our sinful nature is to fight and argue with each other, not cooperate. This is why modern meeting techniques based upon these principles usually include a facilitator. Gotcher points out that Satan was the first facilitator in the Garden of Eden. He says that while women can tolerate these psychological techniques, men cannot and will either succumb or die. When these methods were first introduced into America’s school system, some male educators committed suicide.
God created mankind with the same basic desires and needs, and to live according certain principles as mandated in the Bible so as to establish a civil society. Therefore these subtle psychological principles promoted by the Transformational Marxists will undermine and destroy legitimate authority in any and every society where implemented, regardless of race or nationality, because all peoples will react similarly.
Marx said that the earthly family must be destroyed, and Satan’s goal is to destroy the husband-wife relationship, because socialism is a society without parents. Satan’s New World Order cannot exist until the authority of the father in the family and our Father in Heaven is destroyed. The NWO plan is for children to rule and for Big Brother to be the father. Gotcher said that America got rid of God in the fifties and that now He considers us a bastard nation and we are no longer His children. Unfortunately, American churches have also succumbed to the consensus philosophy in an effort to expand their membership rolls and fellowship, while these principles have even infiltrated home school teaching materials. America now stands unprotected, as a nation without a conscience will yield to global government. We now see how the Transformation Marxists have destroyed America from within, like a homeowner who suddenly discovered that his house has been destroyed by termites, which ate away at the inside of the wood for years unnoticed, such that his house is now only a weak, disintegrating shell.
Gotcher says that people come to many churches now to worship themselves, not God. The emphasis is on the self and attaining one’s desires. Instead, Gotcher says that Christianity is about seeking and doing God’s will, and this pursuit of satisfying personal desires goes back to the Garden of Eden when Eve disobeyed God’s commandment not to eat the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge.
America is being punished as a result of our ongoing failure to obey God and rear children Biblically. We see God’s punishment that we are experiencing outlined in Isaiah 3:4-5, “And I will give children to be their princes, and babes shall rule over them. And the people shall be oppressed, every one by another, and every one by his neighbour: the child shall behave himself proudly against the ancient, and the base against the honourable...As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths.” See also Mark 13:12 “and children shall rise up against their parents, and shall cause them to be put to death.” Will this be fulfilled by physician-assisted suicide of the elderly, deemed useless to society, by their own children? God in His Word warned us of the consequences for failing to rear children according to Biblical principles, and now our nation is reaping the seed we have sown. May God have mercy on us.

However, with God all things are possible, so if we understand the disease we can start the cure for the future by shielding our children from the corrupting anti-Christian influences of our secular education system and society.
