Benson: Socialism Is Compulsion

Socialism, in many varied forms, is presented to us as the panacea for all the world’s problems. Actually, it is the solution for none of them and a major contributor to most of them, but the socialists hope you never figure that out. If you did, you might be tempted to repudiate socialism, which they want you to embrace.

A major component of socialism in this country is the public school system. Those who have read Karl Marx’s Communist Manifesto will recall that #10 of the list of planks Marx listed as part of the agenda for taking over a country was Free Education for all children in public (government) schools. Now admittedly, the content of the Manifesto was not original with Marx. He was hired to write the Manifesto for the League of the Just (Illuminati) so you can probably figure the ten points Marx listed in the Manifesto were Illuminist goals.

But the socialist intent of public schools in this country is not limited to commentary by Marx. Horace Mann and the Unitarians, as well as socialist Robert Owen of New Harmony, Indiana fame, were all strong persuaders of and adherents to the concept of state run schools aka government schools.

To properly “educate” (indoctrinate) generations of students as part of your agenda you had to force compulsory school attendance on them and their descendants so no one would believe it had ever been otherwise. They did this in the South after the War of Northern Aggression aka the “Civil War.” When the Southern states were brought back into the Union–the one Lincoln claimed they’d never been out of, they had to adopt new constitutions. One of the provisions in those new constitutions was that every Southern state would henceforth have a state-run public school system–a government school system. The South had never had this until “Reconstruction” but they do now. One more reason that I stress that “reconstruction is ongoing.”

Of course the Northern states, starting with Massachusetts and spreading to the Middle Atlantic and then Midwestern states, have had government schools since the 1830s. They never bother to tell you that those government schools were started as a reaction to the church schools of that era. That being the case, the supporters of government controlled “education” are the real reactionaries they accuse the rest of us of being because we don’t want their socialist doctrine shoved down our throats. That’s why their education agenda is compulsory. They don’t want people to be able to resist. They want to force you to comply. Like the Yankee soldier told the ex-slave – basically you’re free to do what we want you to do but not what you might choose to do on your own.

Thankfully, in our day, some parents are beginning to find ways around the government’s compulsory education agenda through homeschooling and church and other private schools whose founders have a vision for something other than Karl Marx’s “free education for all children in public schools” and some even realize that Marx lied to them, because with what they pay in property taxes, one can hardly call the public schools “free.” And besides, what’s going on in many public schools today can, only in the wildest of imaginations, be classified as “education.”

Many public schools spend more time promoting the transsexual agenda and teaching that being born white makes you inherently racist, while those of all other races never have that problem and so cannot possibly be racist. Teaching the 3r’s is now racist. Math is racist and so the public school system is in the process of “educating” an entire generation of brilliant buffoons! These kids are in the process of asking all the wrong questions and getting lies back for answers and they are so well “educated” they can’t tell the difference. All they have to do is make sure they change into the right clothes from the trans-closets at school so their parents won’t know what sex they really are!

This is not an indictment of everyone who works or has worked in public schools, but it is an indictment of that system and the socialist values that spawned it, values this country could have done better without. Socialism is, indeed, compulsion and it and its minions will ever continue to look for ways to compel us and our children to comply. We need to practice cultural secession – and part of that cultural secession is taking our kids out of the public school system.
