*sigh* Marxism/socialism is the exact opposite of anarchism. Not the anarchism embedded in people’s heads. ACTUAL anarchism.
Can people STOP confusing real anarchy? You cannot be a Marxist and an anarchist.
Minneapolis middle school teacher Mandi Jung is the latest teacher to spew her Marxist views to her children while claiming she loves anarchy.
The Fox News article also doesn’t accurately define anarchy. The best part? Jung admits the fault in her views. I laughed:
The teacher at Highland Park Middle School, Mandi Jung, frequently posts videos on TikTok espousing anti-capitalist and anarchist philosophies. Anarchism is skeptical of all justifications for authority and seeks to abolish systems like capitalism, which it claims maintain unnecessary coercion and hierarchy. Jung also said that she identifies with the Industrial Workers of the World, an ideological union with ties to socialism and anarchism.
“My students this year have no respect for authority,” the Saint Paul district teacher said. “And I love that in a person because I have no respect for authority whatsoever. But it has been a frustrating year because I am the authority. So I’m like, ‘Damn the man,’ but I am the man.”
1. We do not want to abolish capitalism. We want to abolish corrupt capitalism, also known as corporatism.
2. We do not like government authority.
Yes, deep down, I’m an anarchist. I’m also an ex-socialist.
I love how she admits she hates authority but acknowledges that she is the man. I’m still laughing.
The science teacher thinks cell biology lessons show “capitalist indoctrination.” Okay:
“Seventh grade science… [is] the year that you learn that the mitochondria is the powerhouse of the cell and all this cell biology. So at the end of the unit, I have [students] take a test. And one of the questions is ‘A person says the nucleus is the most important organelle in the cell. Do you agree or disagree, and why?”
“And almost every child says, ‘Yes, I agree. Because without a boss, the cell would be in total chaos.’”
Jung added the students’ responses “cracks me up,” and went on to claim microscopic bacteria were the “original anarchists.”
“Bacteria don’t have a nucleus, and they are arguably one of the most successful classes of organisms on the planet. Bacteria out here being the original anarchists, right? No nucleus, no master. Seize the means of metabolism. I don’t know. It’s funny to me,” she said.
