It’s Never Too Early to Drop Out
Can you put a frog in cold water and slowly boil it to death?
Only if you remove its brain, as physiologist Friedrich Leopold Goltz (1834-1902) demonstrated.
The frog metaphor warns us of the dangers of not noticing the deadly changes in our environment before it’s too late.
The metaphor still holds true because all U.S. citizens DO have their brains removed — by SCHOOLING.
It’s never too early to drop out of school.
Ivan Illich (Deschooling Society, 1971) wrote …
“Many students, especially those who are poor, intuitively know what the schools do for them. They school them to confuse process and substance. Once these become blurred, a new logic is assumed: the more treatment there is, the better are the results; or, escalation leads to success. The pupil is thereby ‘schooled’ to confuse teaching with learning, grade advancement with education, a diploma with competence, and fluency with the ability to say something new. His ‘imagination is ‘schooled’ to accept service in place of value. Medical treatment is mistaken for health care, social work for the improvement of community life, police protection for safety, military poise for national security, the rat race for productive work. Health, learning, dignity, independence, and creative endeavor are defined as little more than the performance of the institutions which claim to serve these ends, and their improvement is made to depend on allocating more resources to the management of hospitals, schools, and other agencies in question.”
School is the reason we accept such abominations as the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.
You may call it Obamacare, but do you really think that the Janitor of the White House sat down with pen in hand and wrote out this 974-page document?
Let’s call it by its true name — FEMAcare (Federal Emergency Management Care).
Dr. Jennifer Daniels (“Who Needs FEMA Camps When People Are Voluntarily Signing Up to Be Killed By the Medical System?”, One Radio Network, May 23, 2016) said …
“When is that button going to get pressed? My revelation is it’s already been pressed, that the centers are actually hospitals. People are already being incarcerated, tortured, and killed there, and there is no need for FEMA camps.”
There are 440,000 hospital deaths a year. The American middle class accepts these casualties without question.
Why? Because they’ve been SCHOOLED to accept them.
Ivan Illich (same source as above) wrote …
“Welfare bureaucracies claim a professional, political, and financial monopoly over the social imagination, setting standards of what is valuable and what is feasible. This monopoly is at the root of the modernization of poverty. Every simple need to which an institutional answer is found permits the invention of a new class of poor and a new definition of poverty. Ten years ago in Mexico it was the normal thing to be born and to die in one’s own home and to be buried by one’s friends. Only the soul’s needs were taken care of by the institutional church. Now to begin and end life at home become signs either of poverty or of special privilege. Dying and health have come under the institutional management of doctors and undertakers.”
By the way, there is no legitimate Alternative Care/Holistic Medicine movement in the U.S.
It’s all dictated by mainstream medicine, and information provided by government agencies.
Do you really think iodine will protect you from radiation?
What is the origin of that lie? The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the “mother of all government values-clarification programs.”
Michelle Malkin (“What does $7 billion buy us? A power-hungry busybody brigade of politicized blame-mongers,” National Review, Oct. 15, 2014) wrote …
“At $7 billion, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention 2014 budget is nearly 200 percent bigger now than it was in 2000. Those evil, stingy Republicans actually approved CDC funding increases in January larger than what President Obama requested.”
According to the same source (ATTENTION, FROGS, THE WATER IS WARMER THAN WARM) …
“‘Social Norming’ in the schools. The CDC has funded studies and campaigns ‘promoting positive community norms’ and ‘safe, stable nurturing relationships (SSNRs)’ in homes and schools. It’s the mother of all government values — clarification programs. Again I ask: Why is this the CDC’s business?”
