My boys are coming down in the fall to train with me, I am so looking forward to it.
I have five children and three have gone to college. One has an BS and MS in Mechanical Engineering, one has a BA in a “soft” science and one stopped after completing her AA. None have debt having attended state colleges absent the Ivy League pedigree and had significant scholarship assistance. All home educated with short interregnums in a government school.
There is a liberty gap across the sexes so my son came out unscathed by the Marxoid government supremacist programming and even personally introduced Ron Paul’s speaking engagement at his school in Idaho. My daughters have come out fairly whole in being human beings with a solid moral center instead of rabid communist man-haters.
I have two sons who have not gone to college and I don’t want them to. I have no fear of losing them to the alien human extinction philosophical framework that informs the moral ecology of most campuses. They are stronger than that.
I don’t want them to sink four plus years of their life into the morass that is the university campus, there is a reason they don’t call it a heteroversity because any ideas that county the orthodoxy of communism, government supremacism, collectivism and infanticide are not tolerated.
So if my lads don’t want to go to college, they will get no grief from me, there are plenty of non-college professions out there (excepting policing, my lads know I would disown them).
Imagine taking those hundreds of thousands of wasted dollars and four to six years of your life to build a business, become a craftsman apprenticing with a master, travelling or even being homeless. At least in the latter you’d be your own man instead of becoming a drooling communist stuck in the Copholm Syndrome collectivist spider web of lies that is government supremacism and other deballing activities of the modern left.
Imagine investing tens of thousands of dollars in becoming the best shooter on Earth.
Building your house with the cash you would have used for college.
Learning a skill the Japanese way, Kintsugi and achieving the Gladwellian mastery of a craft or calling.
Traveling to every corner of the planet you want to.
We discovered in our travels east and west that nothing cures affluenza in children better than immersion in other culture for years at a time. The same applies to the raising of a family in a rural area instead of a hive. My children grew up in a Huck Finn lifestyle when we lived in north Idaho after I retired.
If you have children and they are at a crossroads to go to college, be very careful with that decision and your guidance. You could very well lose your progeny to the most murderous cult in history because the collectivists control the heights of academia and they are using it to terraform the country into a vast slave plantation.
“But whether the Constitution really be one thing, or another, this much is certain – that it has either authorized such a government as we have had, or has been powerless to prevent it. In either case it is unfit to exist.”
― Lysander Spooner, No Treason: The Constitution of No Authority
I took a stab at modifying the 1776 American Declaration of Independence, a brilliant document announcing the divorce of thirteen nation states from London, to present standards of governance, moral malpractice and cowardice; I discovered that much would be left out on the cutting floor and severe alterations to verbiage would be necessary to keep the Homo Sovieticus Booboisie in America from filling their pants and gibbering in abject fear at the prospect of freedom with risks and costs not underwritten by their neighbors.
I had to erase over half of it and wipe out any reference to any behavior absent government permission. So I had to move on to the more fitting document for human bondage and perpetual government, the Constitution.
The Constitution buried the ideals of the DI to import the “London-in-a-box” solution the Hamiltonian Federalists designed to smother freedom in its fifteenth year after the coup in Philadelphia.
The Declaration of Independence continues to be a masterwork of brevity and directness in its promise to sever ties and formalize a divorce. There is no sizable sector of America today that would even have the temerity to sign it much less live up to it. Well, maybe at an abolitionist meeting but I digress.
So I scrapped that project and found a document more in keeping with the modern 21st century American mood.
Now, the Soviet Constitution is something that most Americans can cotton to with the slightest modification in verbiage. I chose the latest of three variants from 1977. I have included a link to the original text at the bottom. All I changed were the descriptors and none of the prospective language.
Most of the ahistorical tax Helots automatically associate the 4th of July with the wretched Constitution anyway. Constitution Day is in September but why wait when the DI has been so famously and ingloriously betrayed in every aspect of its essence and message. The majority in that decision would applaud the Soviet Constitution not that the earlier American version was any shakes when it came to liberty.
The Fourth of July is the same day in 1863 that the defeats at Vicksburg and Gettysburg snuffed out any hope of the South prevailing in its divorce proceedings during the Second American Revolution and the Lincolnian juggernaut would take the Constitution to its final stages of expanding and securing a place for the leviathan state in North America.
Happy Dependence Day, comrades.
PREAMBLE to the 1977 Soviet Constitution slightly modified to American standards:
The Great November Democratic Revolution, made by the workers and peasants of United States under the leadership of the US Government headed by its Presidents, overthrew capitalist and landowner rule, broke the fetters of oppression, established the dictatorship of the voter, and created the American state, a new type of state, the basic instrument for defending the gains of the revolution and for building government intervention and democracy. Humanity thereby began the epoch-making turn from capitalist to government intervention.
After achieving victory in the elections and repulsing free market intervention, the American government carried through far-reaching social and economic transformations, and put an end once and for all to exploitation of man by man, antagonisms between classes, and strive between nationalities. The unification of the American Republics in the Union of American Democratic Republics multiplied the forces and opportunities of the peoples of the country in the building of government intervention. Social ownership of the means of production and genuine democracy for the working masses were established. For the first time in the history of mankind a democratic society was created.
The strength of government intervention was vividly demonstrated by the immortal feat of the American people and their Armed Forces in achieving their historic victory in the Great Cold War. This victory consolidated the influence and international standing of the American Union and created new opportunities for growth of the forces of government intervention, national liberation, democracy, and peace throughout the world.
Continuing their creative endeavors, the working people of the American Union have ensured rapid, all-round development of the country and steady improvement of the democratic system. They have consolidated the alliance of the working class, collective-farm peasantry, and people’s intelligentsia, and friendship of the nations and nationalities of the US. Sociopolitical and ideological unity of American society, in which the middle class is the leading force, has been achieved. The aims of the dictatorship of the voter having been fulfilled, the American state has become a state of the whole people. The leading role of the US Government, the vanguard of all the people, has grown.
In the US a developed democratic society has been built. At this stage, when government intervention is developing on its own foundations, the creative forces of the new system and the advantages of the democratic way of life are becoming increasingly evident, and the working people are more and more widely enjoying the fruits of their great revolutionary gains.
It is a society in which powerful productive forces and progressive science and culture have been created, in which the well-being of the people is constantly rising, and more and more favorable conditions are being provided for the all-round development of the individual.
It is a society of mature democratic social relations, in which, on the basis of the drawing together of all classes and social strata and of the juridical and factual equality of all its nations and nationalities and their fraternal co-operation, a new historical community of people has been formed–the American people.
It is a society of high organizational capacity, ideological commitment, and consciousness of the working people, who are patriots and internationalists.
It is a society in which the law of life is concern of all for the good of each and concern of each for the good of all.
It is a society of true democracy, the political system of which ensures effective management of all public affairs, ever more active participation of the working people in running the state, and the combining of citizen’s real rights and freedoms with their obligations and responsibility to society.
Developed democratic society is a natural, logical stage on the road to democracy.
The supreme goal of the American state is the building of a classless democratic society in which there will be public, democratic self-government. The main aims of the people’s democratic state are: to lay the material and technical foundation of democracy, to perfect democratic social relations and transform them into democratic relations, to mold the citizen of democratic society, to raise the people’s living and cultural standards, to safeguard the country’s security, and to further the consolidation of peace and development of international co-operation.
The American people,
- guided by the ideas of scientific democracy and true to their revolutionary traditions,
- relying on the great social, economic, and political gains of government intervention,
- striving for the further development of democratic democracy,
- taking into account the international position of the US as part of the world system of government intervention, and conscious of their internationalist responsibility,
- preserving continuity of the ideas and principles of the first American Constitution of 1791,
hereby affirm the principle so the social structure and policy of the US, and define the rights, freedoms and obligations of citizens, and the principles of the organization of the democratic state of the whole people, and its aims, and proclaim these in this Constitution.
