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:
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.”
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!
