Think – Because Survival Isn't a Sport

Disarming a Citizenry and Training People into Victimhood


This is a piece I wrote some time ago that I am revisiting due to a conversation I had not long ago with an educator discussing the zero tolerance rules for adjudicating student behavior.

With the fear of gun owners rising at the reality of the democrat controlled house and senate there is an even more damning agenda being furthered that threatens the entire citizenry of the United States, particularly the children being educated in the public school domain. It is not the next blatant end run around the Constitution that seems to be a new sport for presidents and political leaders of both parties. Rather, this is the disarming of the mind and programming individuals to think and act like victims and dependents.

While Obama and the democrats have had their first major political victory in some time, the whiplash effect we see building may be far stronger than we anticipate. With rhetoric from people like Pelosi, Schumer, Clinton, Reid, Franks, and their ilk, we see an agenda that is eerily reminiscent of 1934 Germany. It is also the same plea made by the political extremes of the right regarding individuals who are non-statist although the courses of action to achieve their goals are markedly divergent. The potential disarming and control over the economy that is being sought is staggering and it is aligned with what was established 75 years ago in Europe. There are two very dangerous elements here.

The first is the disarming of the citizenry. An armed citizenry is essential to perform the actions we first see mentioned in our Declaration of Independence. It reads that

“when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.”

The surest way to enable a civilian capability to follow the guidance of our forefathers in this most sacred of duties is to have it remain armed, and this is also the best form of defense against any foreign threat to our nation. In fact I would assert that a trained rifleman and an individual capable of self-protection is the essence of each American’s duty to this nation and the very first requirement to assure its inherent sovereignty. I pray that our political elite will be able to remember and govern in a way where we never have to contemplate the words of our forefathers as a call to arms. I pray that this country will rally and give guidance to them to find a centrist voice to avoid pursuing the course that the vitriole and rhetoric of the rabid left and right-wing radicals espouse.
Along with the continuation of socializing our economy as the Bush administration seems intent on doing, this is not a good indicator of centrist politics.

All of this sets the stage for a socio-political situation that is terrifying and the immediate point of this article and our right to self-protection. While we are being disarmed and made reliant upon government employment and handouts, the indoctrination of our youth continues in the heavily socialist halls of public education. Here students are encouraged to see the “vision” of a leader who has not been vetted in any legitimate manner by a media that used to be an effective watchdog but has lost all integrity and intellectual legitimacy, while being taught to memorize rather than think independently and avoiding logical discussion that questions the hierarchy in any manner. During the past elections I was told by many students that they are called racist for thinking independently and threatened in the hallways or embarrassed in the classroom.

This treatment of our children with systemic bullying and as unthinking automatons, creates illogical situations that allow our schools to be prime targets for those enemies who would attack us and the criminal bullies who feed on our youth without care. It is taught that the tolling bell of our doom as a society lies in our purporting to want a society that indeed embraces the tradition of the American Revolutionary leaders.

I have talked before about the use of 911 and teaching students to accept being bullied and hit rather than to stand up to bullies and fight back if required to defend themselves. The trend is accelerating in schools as the “no-tolerance” positions have hardened into “no thought” positions. If a kid is being bullied and we say to that child “do not fight back on pain of suspension” we are in fact saying “let the goons do what they want to you and be a good little victim.” This is absurd.

Much like those who wish to do away with gun ownership, it punishes only the law abiding. It criminalizes those who would stand up and defend the values this country was founded on and rewards the bully, criminal, terrorist and sycophant. Bullies and their ilk get what they want, a victim they can prey upon without fear of reprisal. Schools are rarely going to call the authorities and have charges pressed if they can bury it themselves by suspending both kids so the bully gets a free victim, and time off from the place he hates to be and the good kid gets to have a beating and then get thrown out of school and have a mark on his academic record that might hurt his college application. Oh yeah, and the tax payer gets to spend money sending a tutor home to the suspended kids, so they get a free round of victimization. Wow, sounds swell, sign me up.

If we teach our kids to continue to be victims, they will become like that later on. They will pick up the phone and call 911 and wait for the rescue as people attack them. Or if they grow into teachers they will know no better than to hide in a room and let themselves and their students become victims if the gunman enters the room, never even thinking about fighting back, just accepting their fate as a sheep being led to the slaughter. Sound like Germany in the 1930’s? Mind your business and we will take care of everything. Orwell was prophetic; he just missed the date in his title.

By extension this should scare people because if we are a school of lemmings and manufactured victims who surrender at each turn, we have much to fear from either a government that would strip us into economic and metal servitude or a terrorist who would enslave or convert us to their religious viewpoint. Either way learned victimhood has only one logical outcome – servility. Servility whether it be to the re-establishment of either the structures of feudal serfdom of early Europe, the re-institution of the oppression of censored life under socialist/communist rule, or the theocratic intolerance of the Caliphates of Islam.

And the criminals will be those who hold office and those complicit who stood by and watched or encouraged the sacrificing of the essence of the greatest country on earth as it is destroyed on their watch to the social parasites who would feed upon the able and just.
