“Let me put this another way, parents. Do you realize that when you are dropping off your kiddies to school from k-12, and that when you are spending your life savings that you scraped together to send your perfect young adult to college — that their smiling teachers and professors with few exceptions are, on-balance, teaching your kids to steal your property, income and savings?* And teaching them this is morally superior? Yes, coercion, plunder and tyranny! Superior! Sound harsh? A recent poll shows that a little over half of the students feel that capitalism is not okay. Who taught them this? You? No. After all you own property and stuff and have jobs and want to keep what’s yours, right? And you don’t want anyone telling you how to live your lives under the point of the coercive State’s guns, right? And you yell and scream using choice expletives when you write that check to the State already as it is, right? Or, do you say, ‘Gee, after I was just raped by the State I want to bend over again and give more!! I want to give all of what I own to central planning crony oligarchs for the ‘greater good’. My little girl Mary and boy Tommy say that’s what I should do or I am a bigot, a racist, or a selfish, greedy capitalist pig. So, Dear Leader, here’s everything I have!’ You say this? No? Then you are a capitalist who wants to keep your own property and incomes and decide what you want to do with it. You want to decide for yourself what you believe, where you live, what you do what you buy and eat, without the elite central-planning crony oligarchy intervening! You want to live-and-let-live. You want this for your children but they have been brainwashed to hate you now. What to do? Wake up. This has been going on for the last 80 years—a ‘progressive’ collectivist education, media and entertainment attack on—you! Once my slap to your already numb cheeks has woken you up, grow a pair and have a come-to-divinity meeting by any means possible with your young breeding socialists-in-the-making and make sure in no uncertain terms they get that you will not take their arrogant bull-shit. Set them straight that there is no benign socialism–that ‘greater good’ and ‘social justice’ cannot ever be achieved by evil plundering, coercive, deceptive, and genocidal means! Because if you don’t, sometime in the near future their candidate-of-choice sold to them by their leftist-‘progressive’ teachers and professors will get elected and they will come for your property and liberty. We have enabled a collectivist beast that is devouring us and you have one shot to reverse this trend by letting little Mary and Tommy know, ‘what’s up’! Carry on. But carry on free.” DM Chaney “Thoughts on Liberty” (Drafts)
* NOTE: Don’t get me wrong. There are many great teachers who understand liberty and capitalism and why it is, without question, morally the only alternative. They understand that collectivism is only, and can ever only be, evil. There is no uncertainty here. Yet, they are over-powered by the screaming and coercion of the powerful NEA teachers union (“progressive” collectivist control since its inception and strong goals of global governance) and the collectivist, un-elected bureaucrats and career politicians that control the Department of Education. These forces drive the agenda and what is acceptable and not acceptable within the walls of our teaching institutions. Clearly, those nearly 50% of the students who still believe in freedom and liberty — capitalism — had to have some teachers along the way supporting their view. For those teachers, kudos.
