Government schools: “The Opiate of the People”
American Children giving the original Pledge of Allegiance in a Public School
By Christopher Hansen
As Republican and Democratic leadership and their boss the Nevada Teacher’s Union prepare for the next legislative session we can be prepared to here, “Its for the Children,” and “Save our Schools,” once again as the Battle cry of Tyrants. It must be asked: Why are schools so important to the Teacher’s Union Socialist agenda? The answer is simple and history testifies to this answer.
President Truman once said, “The only new thing is history we don’t know.” So what is the history of free government controlled education.
The Communist Manifesto was written by the greatest of the Communist Prophets, Karl Marx, and published with the financial assistance of the Banking Rothschilds in 1848 AD. The tenth plank states: “Free education for all children in public schools.” Right on the heals of this socialist religious doctrine Massachusetts passed the first compulsory school attendance laws in 1852 AD. New York quickly followed in 1853 AD. By 1918 AD all of the states had compulsory education laws. Marx plan had been thoroughly adopted.
But not on Communist promoted compulsory education. Adolph Hitler said: “In my great educative work, I am beginning with the young.” Hitler’s Minister of Propaganda and future convicted War Criminal Alfred Rosenberg said: “The education of youth can only be carried out by those who have rescued Germany from disaster. It is therefore impossible to demand one Füehrer, one Reich and one firmly united people as long as education is carried out by forces which are mutually exclusive to each other.”
In a speech at Fulda, on November 27, 1937 Reich Minister for Church affairs Hans Kerrl stated: “We cannot recognize that the Church has a right to insure that the individual should be educated in all respects in the way in which it holds to be right; but we must leave it to the National Socialist State to educate the child in the way it regards as right.”
The Twenty-fourth plank of Hitler’s plan to establish The National Reich’s Church of Germany states: “The National Reich’s Church of Germany abolishes confirmation and religious education as well as the communion the religious preparation for the communion. The educational institutions are and remain the family, the schools, the German youth, the Hitler youth, and the Union of German girls.”
But it was Karl Marx that called religion “The Opiate of the people” while promoting mandatory government controlled free education so that all religious teaching could be abolished.
His religious followers kept Marx religion alive. Nikita Khrushchev wrote: “Like every other form of state-directed activity in the Soviet Union, education is conceived as a weapon serving the interests of the Communist Party and dedicated to a single objective - - the victory of the Soviet system.”
William Z. Foster founder of the Communist Party in America wrote: “Among the elementary measures the American Soviet government will adopt to further the cultural revolution are the following; The schools, colleges and universities will be coordinated and grouped under the National Department of Education and its state and local branches. The studies will be revolutionized, being cleansed of religious, patriotic and other features of the bourgeois ideology. The students will be taught on the basis of Marxian dialectical materialism, internationalism and the general ethics of the new Socialist society. Present obsolete methods of teaching will be superceded by a scientific pedagogy.”
When Foster wrote this in 1932 there was no, “National Department of Education.”
Franklin D. Roosevelt, “In politics, nothing happens by accident. If it happens, it was planned that way.”
It is obvious that these Communists have succeeded. After all, God has been removed from the “Free government schools” for decades. Even private schools are not free from government propaganda as they are controlled by government regulation. Only home-schoolers that do not ask the government for permission are free to teach their children without government indoctrination and these parents are under constant threat of arrest.
We are forced to pay taxes (tithing) to pay for these Government propaganda mills even if we feel they are immoral and do not send our children there. This is diametrically opposed to the principles America was founded upon. Thomas Jefferson explained what is happening when we are forced to pay for anti-God government “free” education when he wrote: “To compel a man to furnish funds for the propagation of ideas he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical.”
Remember the words of the tyrants, “education is conceived as a weapon.”
There is nothing in the United States Constitution that allows for a Department of Education. But look at the Communist Constitution:
CONSTITUTION (FUNDAMENTAL LAW) OF THE UNION OF SOVIET SOCIALIST REPUBLICS
As Amended to January 1, 1964
In order to ensure to citizens freedom of conscience, the church in the USSR is separated from the state, and the school from the church. Freedom of religious worship and freedom of anti-religious propaganda is recognized for all citizens.
Citizens of the USSR have the right to education.
This right is guaranteed by universal compulsory eight-year education, by extensively developed general secondary polytechnical education, professional technical education, secondary special and higher education on the basis of maintaining a link between education and life and production, by extensively developed evening and correspondence schools, by free education of all kinds, by a system of state living allowances, by education in schools in a native language, by organization in factories, in state farms, and in collective farms of production, technological, and agronomic study for toilers without charge.
I repeat the words of Truman and Roosevelt: “The only new thing is history we don’t know,” and “In politics, nothing happens by accident. If it happens, it was planned that way.”
Remember: He who ignores history is doomed to repeat it. Now let us remember American History concerning education:
The Northwest Ordinance, July 13, in the year of our Lord 1787: Article III.
“Religion, morality, and knowledge, being necessary to good government and the happiness of mankind, schools and the means of education shall forever be encouraged…”
You see this is the reason why Nazis and Socialists and Communists and the Nevada Teacher’s Union and Governor Gibbons and Senator Dina Titus and the Supreme Court Justices MUST remove God and Religion from THEIR SCHOOLS because without God, religion and morality they can take your freedom and continue your tax slavery. What we must do is simple. Do not attend THEIR SCHOOLS. DO not send YOUR children to their schools. Do not support their schools and oppose every tax increase to their Churches.
The Teachers Union’s Greatest Lie “It’s for the Children.”
In 1775 The American Founders declared that they were going to take up arms against their government because: “Honour, justice, and humanity, forbid us tamely to surrender that freedom which we received from our gallant ancestors, and which our innocent posterity have a right to receive from us. We cannot endure the infamy and guilt of resigning succeeding generations to that wretchedness which inevitably awaits them, if we basely entail hereditary bondage upon them.” Thomas Jefferson wrote those words and the Continental Congress signed them. That was because of a 2% tax increase. They knew that taxes were hereditary bondage. They gave their lives to keep the children free from such taxation.
The Free Government schools are not for the children. They are to enslave the children because they teach them that government is good, God is unnecessary and that taxes to pay for “free schools” are more important than the Constitution.
The Father of Socialism
In a Lecture by Dr. Nikolas K. Gvosdev he made this new civil religion of education and its opposition to liberty clear when he said:
“Thomas Jefferson once said, ‘No nation has yet existed or been governed without religion.’ Jefferson, as a man of the Enlightenment, was echoing a view that had been put forth by other thinkers of the time. In Book Four, Chapter Eight of The Social Contract, Jean-Jacques Rousseau makes his case for what he terms ‘civil religion’: “There is therefore a purely civil profession of faith of which the Sovereign should fix the articles, not exactly as religious dogmas, but as social sentiments without which a man cannot be a good citizen or a faithful subject. While it can compel no one to believe them, it can banish from the State whoever does not believe them it can banish him, not for impiety, but as an anti-social being, incapable of truly loving the laws and justice, and of sacrificing, at need, his life to his duty. If any one, after publicly recognizing these dogmas, behaves as if he does not believe them, let him be punished by death: he has committed the worst of all crimes, that of lying before the law.”
The Bill of Rights states, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof” This includes the new civil religion and opiate of the people, the “free government schools.”
I do not now nor will I ever worship at the alter of the New American Civil Religion of Free Government Education. Please join with me to fight for your religious liberty. For I do not want to impose Christianity or any other religion on anyone as that is as repugnant to me as this Civil education religion is.
I do not want any one to be taxed for anyone’s religion. Freedom of religion is necessary. Freedom from the Civil Education Religion is necessary if we are to have religious liberty. Therefore we must take back our government from the priests of the New American Civil Religion, the Teacher’s Union and their sycophants.
Stop supporting Communism. Vote to close the Marxist Free Public Schools. Or will your child be just another brick in the Marxist wall?
