The Coming Totalitarian Takeover:
5. The Coming Totalitarian Takeover

Posted by Bob on July 23rd, 2007

(Listen to the audio of this blog.)

Thanks for signing on. I’m Bob Carkhuff, and this is Freedomblog.com.

The theme for today is The Coming Totalitarian Takeover.

For thinking people, this means We the People are being taken over by Totalitarianism.

This story is a carry-over of the “Relate to Read” program at Chester Village Charter School in the south Philadelphia suburbs. Here are the facts:

  • The Chester Village Charter School was supervised by a “Control Board” which set requirements for performance.
  • The Chester Village Charter School surpassed the requirements with “flying colors” in 2006 – 2007.
  • Democratic Governor Rendell created a new three-person “Empowerment Board” to replace the Control Board with a mandate to close the school.

At this time, Chester Village Charter School awaits its fate.

The point of this story is not its dramatic success in academic achievement. The point is the “totalitarian takeover.”

  • Governor appoints an Empowerment Board to close the only school that is succeeding with inner-city children in Chester—indeed, the school that has gone from “worst” to “first” in improvement in the state.

Of course, there are many pressures upon the governor from contributors to his campaign coffers such as the NEA, which opposes “School Choice” and covets the pupil funds as dues from its public school members. Governor Rendell acted in an illegal and totalitarian manner in appointing a new Empowerment Board in order to close a lovely, wonderful little Charter School that embraced and empowered its students. Shame!

At the end of the 20th century, the American Freedom Functions were “peaking:”

  • Collaborative Cultural Relating,
  • Free Enterprise Economics,
  • Democratic Participative Governance.

We the People were collaborating and participating in governance and economics.

Then We the People stopped. Unlike our peasant ancestors, we doubted that we could ever transform ourselves from “real” to “ideal.” We reversed our directions:

  • Competitive and Dependent Cultural Relating,
  • Command-and-Control Economics,
  • Authoritarian and Totalitarian Governance.

These were the first signs of totalitarianism—a reversal of the things that gave us “Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.”

President Eisenhower warned us of forming “The Military-Industrial Complex” as the precondition for the “totalitarian takeover.” We are now witnessing the third party to this complex: Government as facilitator and reinforcer of Totalitarian Multi-National Corporations; Government as political empowerer and reinforcer of the bureaucratic hierarchies of the Military.

We are now witnessing “the unrestrained internal axis of evil to all of our freedoms”:

“The GRIM Complex”

The Government-Reinforced Industrial-Military Complex.

The future is indeed “GRIM!”

Signing off for Freedomblog, this is Bob Carkhuff.

Remember, We the People are the constitutional policy-makers and we must begin to act and face “The GRIM Complex.” Think about it!

We invite your comments. Send to Bob at Freedomblog.com.

“May the road rise to meet you,
And the wind be at your back.”

    Dear Bob,

    To recognize the dire implications of the events at Chester Village Charter School we “the people” need to realize what is at risk for all of us. If we have never really believed or acted on that we have a choice with our lives, if we have never been aware that this choice is the freedom to think, at this point in time do we really know what is at risk with a “Totalitarian Takeover?” There is no outrage.

    If we really do not know or have not accepted our responsibility for our freedom to think, our communities, our neighbors, our friends, and possibly our families, are expendable. The outrage for what is happening in Chester comes from the commitment that no form of human life and growth as we see in children and teachers, for example, is expendable. We can only recognize those injustices if we accept as an injustice our failure to actualize our own freedom to think which is our responsibility.

    Thank you.

    George Banks

    Dear Bob,

    I have read with great interest your articles on the totalitarian take-over. What a sad state of affairs that we slipped so dramatically from a position of exemplar for cultural relating, free enterprise, and democratic participative government to a competitive, command and control, and authoritative government. This totalitarian state in which we now live has alienated the world. We are giving up our democratic differentiation of freedom and thinking. Indeed, it is a GRIM situation. I have hope, when I read your articles, that we can re-claim the elevated positioning we once had.

    On a separate note, the wedding went flawlessly. It was a truly joyful event. What a wonderful juxtaposition to the grim realities of our current world context. Now that I am getting a little back to normal, I would like to start work on the new 3Rs for business. Hope all is well.

    Love,

    Rick
