We, the idiotes

“We the people” are the idiots who are running this country.  We have allowed two generations of our children to be educated to be compliant citizens and workers for a collectivist government and society.  We allowed them to be educated and governed by others instead of ourselves.  And those others truly believe that their knowledge is better than ours and better than natural law.

This is an excellent interview describing where we are today.  “The End of the Line.” By G. Edward Griffin. Sept 2012  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sFii8vqVTTg

Whether we like them or not, over the last 50 years the John Birch Society (JBS) have been correct in almost all of their projections about the future direction of American society.  “The JBS agenda was pro-family, pro-Christian, anti-communist, anti-UN, and anti-big government, while treating the principles of the US Constitution/Bill of Rights as sacrosanct.”  American society today is essentially opposite all of that.

“The JBS charter was based on opposing the plans of a small group of ‘insiders’ working surreptitiously both in and outside of government to bring America’s free-market enterprise system to its knees while incrementally stripping America’s sovereignty and installing a socialist system.”  That is exactly what is happening today.

In her book The Deliberate Dumbing Down of America at the link below, “Charlotte Iserbyt skillfully demonstrates the interconnections between the international, national, regional, state and local plans for the transformation of American society via education.” http://www.deliberatedumbingdown.com/MomsPDFs/DDDoA.sml.pdf

Charlotte Thomson Iserbyt served as a Senior Policy Advisor in the Office of Educational Research and Improvement (OERI), U.S. Department of Education during the first term of U.S. President Ronald Reagan, and staff employee of the US State Department (South Africa, Belgium, South Korea). (wiki)

Ms. Iserbyt’s recommendations were rejected by President Reagan, both Presidents Bush, and of course the entire Democrat/progressive establishment.  As she points out in her book at the link above, the belief that there are two parties in American politics is no more than a nostalgic myth.   For example, Newt Gingrich (who is usually assumed to be a conservative Republican), as Speaker of the House, introduced Alvin Toffler to Congress as his longtime friend and then sat quietly to hear Toffler say that national sovereignty was a thing of the past and that he was an avowed secularist. Toffler wrote Future Shock, The Third Wave, and Creating a New American Civilization.  Each of these books heavily influenced the baby boomers and their parents, that is, the people who are now installed in America’s politics and bureaucracy and America’s educational institutions.  Each of these books heralds the coming “Third Wave” of global, multicultural, tolerant, secular civilization… a veritable tower of Babel.

“Only a crisis, actual or perceived, produces real change. When that crisis occurs, the actions that are taken depend on the ideas that are lying around. That, I believe, is our basic function: to develop alternatives to existing policies, to keep them alive and available until the politically impossible becomes politically inevitable” — Milton Friedman.

Idiotes is a word the ancient Greeks used to describe atomistic thinkers, those people who did not think to connect the dots.We are the idiots of post WWII America who believed our own press and public relations.  We are the idiots who trusted but rarely verified “the experts.”  We are the idiots who believed in technology, who believed in big government, big corporations, big institutions and big ideas.  We are the idiots who did not connect the dots.  We are the idiots who believed that it takes a village instead of individual responsibility.

We are the idiots whose best alternative today is a chaotic, painful crisis which might possibly unify enough people to overthrow our own elected representatives so that we can elect new representatives committed to downsize our government, to eliminate most of the regulations which we have paid trillions of tax dollars to establish, to revert to our original Constitutional and republican form of government, so that our grandchildren and great grandchildren have the liberty we once enjoyed.

    ‎”Do not blame Caesar, blame the people of Rome who have so enthusiastically acclaimed and adored him and rejoiced in their loss of freedom and danced in his path and given him triumphal processions. Blame the people who hail him when he speaks in the Forum of the new wonderful good society which shall now be Rome’s, interpreted to mean more money, more ease, more security, and more living fatly at the expense of the industrious.”

    Marcus Tullius Cicero (106-43 BC)
