There is an article by popular Examiner author Joe Newby which reflects on author’s mind as an opportunity as an anthropologist to share a view on the education and human equality.

On the whole a project on a new socialist nation is a danger for humanity since it means there are still teachers who do not know the truth of socialism (communism) as social practices in the countries of communist regimes, and who believe that socialism/communism is a magic word that makes people happy.
The countries of the former and current communist regimes have been proving globally that totalitarian regimes are most anti-humanistic regimes and they have been using words from the language of democracy to cover their every second crime against humanity. Also, socialistic parties have been abusing the democratic vocabulary while in their programs (e.g.) they start with world socialism, since this is to attract their members – their will become world power.
The comparison between the totalitarian communist (socialistic) and democratic countries favor democratic and on the first place the USA. Democracy is not about what you can do (the totalitarian principal), but what you cannot do if you don’t want to break the law. The American democracy is human Freedom and everybody can be happy if creates humanistic mind of self-awareness.
The 21st century is a life to be happy, and not to be rich. Richness can make you happier, as well everybody can become materially rich in the USA. However not everybody wants to develop abilities to become rich and don't want to be rich living just for material achievements.
Are really in the USA people who believe in socialism? There are people who want to turn down the American system and to invent socialism just to become powerful totalitarian people which goal is impossible from the perspectives of globalization but they still trouble the world.
The last thing what Obama supports is socialism. Obama is a democratically thinking university professor, who for instance, wants to invent a healthcare which helps society by helping majority. It is not socialism. It is a continuation of the Social Security that brought a security of American citizens and residents at least for the last part of their life. Obama healthcare extends this security for the whole life.
The socialistic ideology is anti-humanistic, aggressive and brutal. The communists have been using brain terror (psychotronic terrorism) and there are many paid KGB and KGB related agents in the USA who have been using all means of demagogic ideology to try to invent socialistic ideas in the USA, whose only goal is to increase the Russian power as world leader. It is bigger danger than Nazi since Nazi was revealed while communism continue to rule without any sanctions in the world despite it is even more or equally anti-humanistic.
However, should we stop thinking about future society which will be more humanistic and which can make more people live happy and feel happy? I believe every teacher even since the first grade can offer such project about ideal human society. Socialist nation is danger for whole humanity, while a project of ideal society can bring so many fresh ideas that can be embedded in the democracy and especially in the American democracy.
The real democracy in the USA is the healthy trunk of tree of life of human world civilization. At least till now, human mind could not create better model. The picture includes bright and dark colors, but this is a picture of real democracy. To make this picture brighter, one possible direction is not thinking of fake social models but revealing these branches of the trees that endanger the trunk to become sick and the tree to die. There are such branches: academic system, health care, absence of the willing employees to understanding that the life is expensive and employees need more money today for their subsistence, corruption, increasing crime. Obama reasonably has focused on healthcare. However, these are single branches on which even can be found healthy leaves and they to change the whole color.
To be American today means to be proud to live in a democratic country. At everyday life level it is very easy to tell those who believe in socialism: just go and live in China, for instance. Humankind is diversity, and American democracy is the ideal of people who really like democracy and not to use fake ideals to practice totalitarian criminal power. There is no different socialism, since totalitarism is only of one color - black. There are different democracies. And the American democracy is the best in human history with most brightest colors in its picture of everydayness, in particular.
