– Eton College’s Exam Asks Boys to Justify the Army Killing Protesters (Liberty Bliitzkrieg, May 26, 2013):
Eton, the elite boarding school just west of London, attended by Prince William, Prince Harry and current UK Prime Minister David Cameron asked a very interesting question on a recent scholarship questionnaire. Specifically, 13 year old boys were asked to justify the army killing 25 protestors in oil-price related civil unrest.
It’s all hypothetical to be sure. Just as hypothetical as the DHS buying billions of rounds of ammunition and assault weapons. For hypothetical use, against hypothetical protestors when the hypothetical ponzi financial system collapses due to hypothetical theft by hypothetical oligarchs. Got that?
From the Huffington Post:
Eton College asked 13-year-old boys competing for a scholarship to pretend to be Prime Minister and justify the army shooting dead 25 protesters as a “necessary and moral” decision, it has emerged.
The public school set the question as part of an exam to win one of 14 King’s Scholarships, which is worth one tenth of Eton’s £10,689 termly fees.
The question, which was posed to students in 2011, tells the teenagers: “The government has deployed the Army to curb the protests. After two days the protests have been stopped but 25 protesters have been killed by the Army.
“You are the Prime Minister. Write the script for a speech to be broadcast to the nation in which you explain why employing the Army against violent protesters was the only option available to you and one which was both necessary and moral.”
The college, which Prince Harry and Prince William attended, charges more than £30,000 a year in fees. The exam paper makes up just one part of the scholarship exam, and the full set can be viewed here.
