Dr. Gary North has written, “You want to rebel against the Feds (and this agenda)? Get your kids and grandkids out of government schools.” What Aamon Bundy and his brothers are doing in the takeover of a Malheur Wildlife Refuge Headquarters to draw attention to the plight of the Hammond family is a fool’s errand.
As we all suspect, there’s a great deal of statist shenanigans going on. There is no doubt that the Hammonds are getting a raw deal. The Bureau of Land Management (BLM), an agency of our government that oversees millions of acres of land in the West, wants to make an example of the Hammonds for the other ranchers. The federal government owns “53.1 percent of all territory in Oregon,” and it wants more, including the land owned by the Hammonds. Ben Shapiro’s article is must reading.
keep this in mind, “Neither Ammon Bundy nor anyone within his group/organization speak for the Hammond Family,” the Hammonds’ lawyer W. Alan Schroeder wrote to Sheriff David Ward. The Hammonds do not support the armed takeover of Malheur Wildlife Refuge Headquarters.
In effect, the occupiers are “romantic revolutionaries” who believe cultural, moral, and legal change can come by way of armed revolt or at least the threat of force.
Even if the occupiers win (and they won’t), and their cause is just, the vast majority of children in the United States will still be going to government schools where a majority will become statist stooges.
If you really believe the government is a huge problem (and it is), then sending our children to be educated by the government is the last thing we should be doing. At this point in time, the government won’t bother with you if you educate your children at home, send them to a church school, or a private school. If enough people did this, the statist establishment would freak out and lose a tremendous amount of money and power without bullet ever being fired or threatened.
Liberals fear that Americans will wake up one day and ask this question: “Why are we sending our children to schools that are run by the government and students are being taught to love Big Brother? Liberals know that our nation’s schools are the breeding ground for their statist worldview, and they salivate over the prospect of indoctrinating a new generation of obedient servants to the statist cause.
This is all accomplished free of charge! In fact, parents are actually paying for the worldview destruction of their children.
Don’t think you’re going to turn the government schools around. Conservatives have been trying to do it for more than 50 years. The schools have only gotten ideologically worse, more expensive, and federally controlled by a multi-billion dollar bureaucracy.
More than 95 percent of American young people attend government schools. We call them public schools, but they are really government schools. The curriculum is designed by the government, the textbooks are approved by the government, the funding comes from money stolen by the government, and the Federal Department of Education oversees the whole process.
From the time a child enters kindergarten, he learns directly and indirectly that he is indebted to the State and looks to the State for sustenance.
As long as parents continue to send their children to government schools, liberals will have a stranglehold on the nation. We won’t see any appreciable change in the direction of the nation until parents realize that the false premise of “free education” is a self-destructive delusion.
We’re fighting illegal immigration. But it’s not really about immigration; it’s about what citizens and legal and illegal immigrants learn in government schools that makes the difference in the long run.
Liberals count on conservatives, libertarians, and constitutionalists to send their children to the local government school system. They’ll be able to indoctrinate future statists for six hours each day, five days each week, for ten months each year for 13 years.
Your children will spend more time with strangers than with you for 13 years of their lives. They will learn what other people are required by law to teach them. You’ll get them a few hours each evening (if they’re not doing homework) before they go off to bed for at least 8 hours of sleep to repeat the indoctrination all over again.
Government schools are indoctrination centers. The liberals know it; that’s why they continually demand more money for their support and work continually to control every aspect of the curriculum.
If you want to strike fear in the liberal establishment, abandon the government schools. Will you have to sacrifice? Yes. Better to sacrifice now than to pay a steeper price later.
Liberals talk claim they are “doing it for the children.” They are doing it to control the children. Let’s take the control of the future away from them.
Do it now while you have the freedom. Do it before it’s too late.
