The Federalist Papers, The Maine Constitution and the Federalis Papers
I covered public education in my book , Public Private Relationships and the New Owners of the Means of Production.

In the late 1990's the Maine Legislature granted itself jurisdiction over all public education from subprimary to higher education. Public education is tied into the Legislatures targeted sector economics and as it goes up in grades is used to train workers in targeted sector privately owned industry subsidized by the general taxpayers.

The targeted sector functions under the political ideology articulated by Benito Mussolini in the Doctrine of Fascism. Fascism is a system in which everything orbits around the state. Private Industry exists but it must serve the purposes of the state.

Around 2004 a minor in Marxist and Socialist Studies was entrenched at the University of Southern Maine. There is minimal education concerning the Federalist Papers and the American political philosophy and none about the Maine Constitution in our public education system as run under the jurisdiction of the Maine Legislature.

The University of Maine has instituted a rights to intellectual ownership policy. In the small print, without any identifying heading to call attention to itself it says that the U of Maine ownership of intellectual property rights apply to uncompensated individuals if the University decides that said individuals have made use of the publicly owned and capitalized facilities more than "incidentally". This is decided solely at the University's discretion.

The conflation of the ownership of intellectual property rights with the ownership of the means of production is consitent with Communist political philosophy and diametricly opposed to the American political philosophy founded on individualism. In the American political philosophy, the creator of intellectual property is the owner of the same intellectual property. The owner of the means of production charges a the use of its property but cannot make claims on the ownership of intellectual property based on ownership of the means of production. In the American political philosophy, if the University of Maine thinks that someone is making more than "incidental" use of public facilities it would be handled first and foremost by posting in advance measurable guidelines for accepted usage and charging a usage fee for anything over those guidelines.Claiming ownership of intellectual property on the basis of claims by the University that the author has made more than "incidental" use of its publicly financed facilities is unheard of!

An understanding of political philosophy and that which distinguishes the American political philosophy of individual freedom from totalitarian systems like communism and fascism needs to be taught at the highschool level as should the Maine Constitution.

Unfotunately, the Maien Legislature which has deemed themselves jurisdiction over public education in Maine doesn't think so.

More on this subject in my book, Public Private Relationships and The New Owners of the Means of Production currently available for Kindle on Amazon HERE and soon to be available in print.

Education needs to be part of the solution. Should the Maine Legislature have control over public education and be using it as an instrumentality of targeted sector (special interests) economics ?
