Years ago when I would mention homeschooling to friends or strangers, I was bound to receive one of two replies: Either they applauded but assumed it was something they couldn’t do themselves or they had bought into stigmas surrounding homeschooling and would never choose it.
But with school closures due to COVID, parents were thrust into homeschooling or long-distance learning, whether they wanted to do it or not. This left many of them feeling overwhelmed or lost. In my personal experience, as one who was homeschooled, I have found that homeschooling was and is, actually easy. As with anything worthwhile, there is a certain level of difficulty, but it doesn’t have to be overwhelming.
At the risk of sounding flippant, I’d like to offer two reasons why I think more people should homeschool and five tips for making the most of it.
The word “indoctrination” has been thrown around quite a bit today in discussions of the public school system, but that problem is not a new one. Government education is necessarily rooted in principles of socialism.. That may be a hard pill for some to swallow, but if you look at the construct of public education you will see it’s true. In Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels’ Communist Manifesto , they listed “free” public education as one of the features of their “10 Plank” system for seizing power. If we have learned anything from history it is this: in order for socialism to work there must be a certain level of indoctrination. Who better to manipulate than children?
I don’t believe that everyone who works in public education has this agenda, but I can’t disregard the evidence that socialist goals typically involve working within the confines of government schools and the targeting of children.

They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
