The question is, who owns your child? Does the government own your child? To understand what is happening currently relative to one’s children, there are several issues which need to be addressed and understood, in order to grasp the meaning of this subject.
This includes an understanding of governing, Ownership, Freedom, Bondage, Schooling, teaching, Health, Doles, controls, News media, Psychology, Phylosophy, economics and etc. In this connection, I will write a series of articles on this subject. Simply because we are a nation way overdue in understanding and coming to grips with what’s happening with children in this country.
A few days ago a fuse was lit by MSNBC host Melissa Harriss-Perry, saying children should belong to their communities, not families. Quoted as saying, “Your kid is yours and totally your responsibility. We haven’t had a very collective notion of these are our children,” she says. So part of it is we have to break through our kind of private idea that kids belong to their parents, or kids belong to their families, and recognize that kids belong to WHOLE COMMUNITIES [emphasis mine].
I’m quite glad over the fact Melissa Harris-Perry let the cat out of the bag. Not really anything new. Hillary Clinton, as I recall, sometime ago promoted the idea that it takes a village to raise a child.
I suggest what they are implying by saying the Community and a Village have a responsibility in your child-rearing, refers to government responsibility in rearing your child. After all, it’s political government that takes over rearing, beginning with pre-K schooling, to mold the child in the tenets of Socialism, because government operated schools are a system of socialism.
I personally caught on to what the government was doing by brainwashing children into the tenets of socialism, way back in the early sixties. I removed them to home-school, when it was prohibited, and have written previous articles on my experiences throughout the years, raising two families. I referred to my method of dealing with public schools as counter-brainwashing.
To understand what is taking place, we must go back to some basic understanding. Specifically, there are two kinds of government. There’s Political government, based upon the immorality of thievery, with doles and controls, then there’s the Self-Government of Freedom, based upon responsibility for one’s actions and decisions.
The second part to consider is the meaning of “ownership.” What constitutes ownership. Can’t own anything without having control of it, and being able to establish a boundary. It’s a total concept.
I don’t believe anyone person owns another in totality. However, a certain degree of thought control, physical restraint, and indoctrination, can cause one to lose a certain identity, and act in accordance with the wishes and commands of another, to a degree he in reality as the perpetrator of control does in fact act as the owner of another. Despite the fact the victim still chews and digests his food, makes voluntary movements, his hair still grows and some other areas the victim still controls, the mental training and emotional direction can be so under the influence of another, he does not totally own his actions and decisions.
If this acquisition of at least partial ownership began as training of a small child, it is easy to control the actions and direct their thoughts. In this connection, I term the existence of one who has been brainwashed to act and re-act to the desires of another, a share-cropper’s existence. It is difficult for the person to perceive reality from the standpoint of his own thought processes, but perceives things through the lens of a teacher who indoctrinated.
The struggle throughout civilization has been one of ownership and control of a political government versus ownership and control by the individual. This power struggle was the essence of the American Revolution, men who stood up and fought to break the chains of this ownership and control via British rule. They wanted to be free, in control of their lives and claim ownership of themselves and other properties. They won their freedom to have this kind of life. As a result this new lifestyle of living became the envy of the world, and for approximately 200 years, this country and its people thrived, created and built unimaginable things to enhance life, and enjoy Freedom. And left their children and those who followed a legacy of Freedom, spelled out in documents they created. Mainly the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution.
Despite the fact our founding fathers left us a legacy of freedom, it is my sincere belief we were all born with a Divine Right of Freedom, given to us by our Creator. And we have the responsibility of “eternal vigilance” to maintain and sustain. However, we have squandered it for two reasons. The relinquishment of our responsibility to maintain and sustain, causing those who have a lust for power to rule and take property belonging to others, like dripping water bit by bit, has resulted in the conditions we have today. Loss of personal freedoms, dismantling the form of a Republic political government, replaced by Socialism. Replacing a free-enterprising, capitalistic system by a socialistic centralized operated system of doles and controls.
It’s elementary, dear Watson, when facing the question, whether or not a centralized political government owns your child. Faced with all the enforced rules, regulations, polices and edicts an individual is confronted with from day one of birth, one can see to a large extent, children are owned by the government.
There has been an element of lust for power-seekers since day one, and bit by bit parents have relinquished responsibility for raising their children, by falling into the trap of so-called Free Public schooling, beginning with early age Pre-K.
The current centralized political power seems to be gaining ascendancy over individual controls daily. The speed with which it has progressed has been aided by so many ordinary citizens in support of it. The Liberal, Left-Wing press and all those connected with it in one way or another aid and abet, because words have power. The notion being promoted, that responsibility for child-rearing falls under the heading of villages and communities, instead of parental responsibility, is all part of the technique of Dialectic materialism and the basic tenets and strategies of Marxism.
This promotion in addition to public schooling, is commensurate with that which is taught in the tax-supported school system. Further alienation from Parental guidance and authority, to be slotted in “group-think.”
There is nothing happenstance about all taking place, but quite well organized with a purpose behind it. And daily we see and hear the disastrous results on the evening news.
