The “hive,” “Borg,” collectivism mindset, whatever you want to call it, is continuing to grow. Watch the video below.
Was your response after watching this video utter disgust? Congratulations, you might be a person who believes in freedom and responsibility.
Your children are not your responsibility; they are society’s responsibility. This idea is the same as “it takes a village to raise a child.” That philosophy is destructive to family, community and freedom. $12k per student per year isn’t enough of an investment? It isn’t enough because education isn’t the goal of the education system. Complete adherence to you owners (aka “leaders & politicians) decrees and the dissolution of true liberty is the goal. This is why the education system is so important to the statists, brainwash the kids early and in a few generations the vast majority will compliant sheeple. It is not an education system, it is a training system.
This is the same mindset that propagates ideas that your health is everyone’s responsibility. This leads to Obamacare, forced vaccinations and politicians like “lil’ hitler” Bloomberg banning sugary drinks of a certain size. Mark my words, the 2nd Amendment will be attacked again and it will viewed in terms of a public health hazard. Our politicians will need to “do something.” This “village” idea is also the basis for why wealth needs to be forcibly collected and redistributed, because it really isn’t the owner’s, it is society’s and must be distributed fairly. If you are forced to be part of a tribe or village then you are a slave.
This video will be pushed to all corners of the internet and will even be labeled as the mindset of the “Progressive”, the “Socialist” and the “Ultra-Liberal” but is it really limited to them? I don’t think it is, there are many people who consider themselves “conservative” or “republican” that support the agenda this woman professes is a moral prerogative.
Ask yourself whether you support the fact that school taxes are assessed and levied against the perceived value of your property each year to fund the local public school system?
If “no”, congratulations again; you actually believe in freedom and have a moral and philosophical compass that is consistent.
If you weren’t disgusted by the video above and respond “yes” to the question above then you are unquestionably a statist and collectivist. Your philosophy is what I consider a mental disorder but atleast you are morally consistent. And if you support the idea that government should use force to impose these ideologies you are nothing short of a monster.
But if you say “yes” to that question while also being disgusted by the video then you are a hypocrite. The public school system operates under pure coercion, they declare that the value of your property is of certain dollar amount and demand you pay them rent (they call it taxes but it is rent). It does not matter if your children go to these public schools or not. It doesn’t even matter if you have children at all. Because you are a property owner you have to “pay up.” And if you refuse, government officials (thugs with guns) will take their money from you (if they decide how much you keep it isn’t yours, it is actually theirs), take your property and/or stick you in a cage. If things escalate you might even pay with your life. Do not be eloquent or coy about this; these people are not legitimate government (any government that acts aggressively and uses coercion is illegitimate); these are thugs/mafioso’s extorting money from their victims. They are criminals and terrorists and they are not to be reasoned with, only obeyed.
To be blunt if you say “yes” to that question you are practicing cognitive dissonance, holding 2 opposing truths as fact in your mind. It is the equivalent of looking at the car below and believing it is both red and blue at the same time.
I have heard the arguments before, “isn’t it the responsibility of the community to fund the schools?”, “not everyone can afford it?”
No, the parents must be responsible for their children. If people don’t feel responsible for their children then you have what we have today, children out of wedlock, welfare babies and kids that grow up in the system only looking to survive. When relying on survival instincts and no parental guidance we shouldn’t be surprised when these kids grow up to be the animals that inhabit cities like Detroit, Chicago and Philadelphia. And of course not everyone can afford it, the government is providing the service so it will obviously cost exponentially more than if it were done in the private sector. When is a monopoly ever affordable?
Personally, I attended both a private Catholic School (K-10) and the local public school (11 & 12). There were problems and advantages with both at the time but my parents absolutely took responsibility for me. The important thing is that I was able to grow up and not become part of the collective “Borg” mindset and use my critical thinking skills to find my own path and recognize the evils of government and prosperity capable with true unabated freedom.
That being said, eventually we will have to decide whether to home-school our son or send him to a private school. Notice how I don’t even include sending him to public school as a viable option. People will say things like I would send my child to a private school but I am already paying for the public education. If they consider collectivism even a fraction as destructive as I do then shame on them. Nothing in this world should be as important to you as your children. This likely means you are a tleast partly a collectivist.
I don’t view it as a waste or unnecessary cost, paying for private school or sacrificing to homeschool isn’t a burden. I know I will have to pay the extortion fees for the public school funding but I am more concerned about how destructive the service is to the mind of the children (victims) that are forced to attend. I see paying extra as a means to keep evil people like the woman in the video and that inhabit the education profession (particularly the politicians and administrators) as far away from my child as long as possible. I would be buying him time so that his mind could grow unmolested from the disease that is collectivism. I hope you do the same.
