Democrat Senate candidate from Texas Beto O’Rourke hoped to “introduce a bill to Congress this year that would require all young people to spend at least a year ‘in service to this country.’” This is a form of servitude. There is no provision in the Constitution for required service to this country. It’s bad enough that young people are propagandized by our government in government schools 6 hours each day for 192 days each year for 12 years, now this Democrat wants more of their time from brainwashing.
What political party do you think will benefit from such a law? Democrats. Democrats are all about other people serving the State. The State is their provider. All good things come from Washington with other people’s money.
For liberals, the State takes on divine attributes. Anything the State decides to do is right and good because a god can’t be wrong or challenged. Conde Pallen’s utopian novel Crucible Island depicts what happens when the true God is rejected. Man looks for a substitute provider so that “the individual should have no thought, desire, or object other than the public welfare, of which the State is the creator and the inviolable guardian. As soon as the child is capable of learning, he is taught the Socialist Catechism, whose first questions run as follows”:
Q. By whom were you begotten?
A. By the sovereign State.
Q. Why were you begotten?
A. That I might know, love, and serve the Sovereign State always.
Q. What is the sovereign State?
A. The sovereign State is humanity in composite and perfect being.
Q. Why is the State supreme?
A. The State is supreme because it is my Creator and Conserver in which I am and move and have my being and without which I am nothing.
Q. What is the individual?
A. The individual is only a part of the whole, and made for the whole, and finds his complete and perfect expression in the sovereign State. Individuals are made for cooperation only, like feet, like hands, like eyelids, like the rows of the upper and lower teeth.
We already are in service (servitude) to this country. The fruit of our labor is confiscated so they State can redistribute it to people who have no right to it, either morally (“You shall not steal”) or constitutionally. Statists justify their policies because they maintain its the role of the State to act as a parent to the people…
