Dave Hodges: Health and Human Services (HHS) and Children Protective Services (CPS) Want to Take Control of Your Kids, Ceausescu-Style

" We are never invested as much in public education as we should have because we've always had a kind of private notion of children. Your kid is 'yours' and totally your responsibility We've never had a very collective notion that these are 'our' children. So part of it is we have to break through our kind of private idea that kids belong to their parents or that kids belong to their familes, in recognizing that kids belong to whole communities. Once it's EVERYBODY'S responsibility and not just the hoursefold, then we start makng better investments" ... MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry

Dave Hodges: Health and Human Services (HHS) and Children Protective Services (CPS) Want to Take Control of Your Kids, Ceausescu-Style (August 17, 2013)

The Mother of All Conspiracies Aimed At Our Children

   We are from HHS and we're here to help you                               

There is presently a massive conspiracy designed to separate you from your children and give the government complete control over your children. To put it simply, Health and Human Services (HHS) and their state level emissary, Children Protective Services (CPS) are engaged in a conspiracy which will culminate in (1) the Agenda 21 designed breakdown of the family; (2) the eradication of any semblance of parental authority over children; and, (3) unbridled and unfettered access to seizing children from the home in unlimited quantities for whatever nefarious purposes which might dictate the volume of child seizures.

The International Plot Begins with the UN

This program emanates from a partnership between various United Nations organizations and ICF [Inner City Fund] International , acting on behalf of HHS, CPS and Obamacare (i.e. The Affordable Health Care Act). The evidence in this article, along with the included links, will demonstrate that when Obamacare is fully operational, our families, specifically our children will be living in a Romanian type of a Ceausescu hellish nightmare.

Romanian dictator, Nicolae Ceausescu, seized hundreds of thousands of children from stable families under the pretense that these children had 'disabilities' which could only be treated by the government. In reality, this madman planned to use the seized children, raised in government orphanages, for military and state purposes. Three hundred thousand children were raised in these state run orphanages (Romanian Had Ceausescu survived, the vast majority of these children would have been useless to him because there were functionally retarded due to severe neglect.

After reviewing HHS, CPS and UN documents, I have no doubt that Obamacare has the same goals and intentions as Ceausescu. What is being presently reported in the alternative media is merely the tip of the iceberg with regard to HHS’ intentions toward the ultimate outcome of the children in this country. After reviewing the documents, there is no doubt that Obama is representing international interests which will seek to remove as many children as possible from the homes of their parents in the spirit of Ceausescu. I freely admit that what I am about to reveal here has made me lose sleep and for the first time contemplate the real possibility of a revolution against the bankers who have hijacked our government. I cannot see parents submitting to this tyranny without a fight.\\

About the New and Revised Child Abuse and Neglect User Manual Series

Since the late 1970s, the popular Child Abuse and Neglect User Manual Series has been used for formal training, self-instruction, desktop reference, and program development by hundreds of thousands of multidisciplinary professionals working with abused and neglected children and their families, as well as by students and concerned community members. Since the last update of the series in the early 1990s, a number of new issues have arisen and significant changes have occurred in the service delivery systems for children and families (e.g., new legislation, systems reform efforts, and advances in what is known about best practice) that are not reflected in the earlier Manuals.
Project Objectives

The purpose of this project is to update, revise, and enhance the Child Abuse and Neglect User Manual Series to reflect the current state of knowledge on child abuse and neglect. The new series provides:

A foundation for understanding child abuse and neglect issues, as well as an understanding of the roles and responsibilities of various professionals in preventing, identifying, and responding to child maltreatment. Practical guidance to professionals involved in child protection, which includes promoting effective and collaborative practices in working with children and families.
Concise and easy-to-understand information to support training and education activities.

Target Audience

The target audience for the series is child protective services [CPS] caseworkers, as well as community partners and professionals working with children and families in the fields of law enforcement, court and legal services, domestic violence, mental health, health care, substance abuse, child care, and education.

But first let me quickly review the recent revelations of the HHS/CPS/Obamacare intention to conduct what I have dubbed as “home invasion interventions.”                            

Obamacare Home Invasions and Interventions

According to a previously unreported Obamacare regulation, that has managed to escape “scrutiny” from the mainstream media, millions of American families will be targeted for home invasion by the forces of the Federal government in the name of preventing parental neglect resulting in disabilities in their children. And the Fourth Amendment be damned, after January 1, 2014, Federal officials may enter your home without a warrant in order to “intervene” for the purpose of saving “high risk” children.

Obamacare’s Definition of High Risk

The exposure of the extreme and intrusive nature of Obamacare through home invasions is finally seeing the light of day in the alternative media. However, this exposure is grossly understated. As a starting point, I will briefly review what is making the rounds in the alternative media. According to Human Health Services,

your family is eligible for this Soviet-style “intervention” in the following situations:

  1. Families where mom is not yet 21.
  2. Families where someone is a tobacco user.
  3. Families where children have low student achievement, developmental delays, or disabilities.
  4. Families with individuals who are serving or formerly served in the armed forces, including such families that have members of the armed forces who have had multiple deployments outside the United States.
  5. Although this is not being widely reported, homeschoolers and their families will be targeted for “interventions” as will be families who object to having their children take vaccines.

There is no question that all of the above categories will warrant a home invasion followed by “remediation.” The visits will not be conducted by HHS officials as has been reported in several publications. The home invasion visits will be conducted by CPS on behalf of HHS.

HHS has designed a detailed 110-page policy manual

which focuses on the criteria constituting child neglect. This policy manual which is the guide created by HHS for CPS’ home intervention visits makes the above criteria, presently being reported in the alternative media, look tame by comparison.

HHS, CPS and the Criminalization of Parenthood

In the 110-page HHS/CPS manual, the variables which comprise child neglect worthy of government intervention is frightening beyond any words I can find to express their undisguised intentions. This entire document which will serve as the field manual by CPS in support of Obamacare undermines parental authority to a level that is beyond belief.

How many of you were ever grounded by your parents and not permitted to play outside with your friends? This is now illegal under the HHS/CPS policy manual. They label the treatment as "neglect by isolation." There are no time frames set forth which constitute isolation, and it is left to the field representative. This obviously erodes parental discipline.

If your child is judged to be underachieving in school, this is referred to as "educational neglect" and is worthy of governmental intervention. Further, if your child is absent for five days in any one month from school, the same allegation would be made against the parent.

If your child has ADD or ADHD, you could be accused of neglect because the document details how this can be somehow caused by poor nutrition, although the variables associated with the cause are not specified.

The document goes out of its way to specify that poverty and neglect are not inextricably linked. Then the document goes out of its way to link poverty with child neglect. Read between the lines America. As we already are aware, many poor children who go missing from scandals such The Second Mile Foundation, The Franklin Scandal and the latest with the 78 missing wards of the state in Oklahoma, frequently end up being put into child sex trafficking rings operated and funded by such notables as DynCorp and HSBC bank.

Of course no Obama-inspired program would be complete without an attack upon the Second Amendment. Obamacare is no exception, as one of the criteria for 'child neglect' are parents who are also gun owners.

The presence of alcohol in the home is a trigger for an allegation of neglect and subsequent “intervention.” Of course, alcoholic parents can present a clear-and-present danger to a child’s well-being. However, in the policy manual the conditions for concern over alcohol do not detail the amount and percentage of the family resources involved necessary to obtain alcohol. In other words, one can of beer in the home can be considered to constitute child neglect by the Obamacare CPS fieldworker.

If your child has engages in any type of illicit or criminal behavior, your family is at risk. Raise your hands if you ever smoked pot before the age of 18, or drank as a teen, or engaged in any kind of sexual activity before the age of 18, ever stayed out past curfew, or ever shoplifted? IF your children ever engage in these and a multitude of other transgressions, you are in danger of losing your children. This also means that if your child is ever involved in a fight in school or is assigned detention, the school will be required to report the behavior to the HHS/CPS and you can expect to have a “home invasion intervention” session with your friendly Obamacare CPS fieldworker.

If you are ever late picking up your child from daycare or from school aftercare, you will be reported.

If you have ever been depressed or have been treated for any mental disorder (e.g. PTSD, anxiety, etc.), you are at risk for losing your children.

Even illegal immigrant families are not immune from this insanity. Children are judged by the field worker to not be fully acculturated, do not properly speak the language, exhibits signs of being homesick and judged to have not formed an unspecified number of friends and formed a cohesive social network, allegations of neglect can be made.

I could literally write 10 more pages on what CPS/HHS, on behalf of Obamacare, considers to be 'parental neglect.' I would invite the reader to spend some time reviewing the document

which will be serving as the policy manual for the forced home inspections. Please note that when the reader gets beyond the flowery language and professed concern for children, that the language is written so broadly that virtually any human condition, any family circumstance or child’s behavior can be interpreted as child neglect.

The important thing to note is the use of language by this manual. Parents who are deemed by an Obamacare CPS field worker, operating under the HHS flag, to be neglectful towards their children are considered to have created “disabilities” within their children. As the reader will soon discover, the use of the term “disabilities” is key to understanding how far this administration is willing to go to seize children for some nefarious purpose.

Sadly, this is still only the beginning. There is far more to be concerned about beginning with who is ultimately responsible for these outrages.

Meet the Creators of the State Sponsored Child Kidnapping Rings

Dianne DePanfilisThe primary author for this insane manual for HHS/CPS and their designed home invasion interventions is Diane DePanfilis, Ph.D., M.S.W [ photo right ]. She is the Associate Dean for. Research and an Associate Professor of Social Work at the University of Maryland. More importantly she is a co-editor of the Handbook on Child Protection Practice. In other words, DePanfilis has been a major player in the unconstitutional practices we see in CPS in all 50 states. As if this is not concerning enough, all of the other contributing authors have their professional origins and affiliations with the same organization.

  • Lindsay Ritter Taylor from Caliber, an ICF International Company
  • Matthew Shuman, M.S.W, A consultant with Caliber, an ICF International Company
  • Jean Strohl, A consultant with Caliber, an ICF International Company,
  • Jeannie Newman, M.S.W, M.I.B.S., A consultant with Caliber, an ICF International Company

It was at this point, I smelled a rat. We have the primary author being a CPS author designed to teach their field operatives on the methods of how to abuse parents and undermine parental authority. And all of the contributing authors come from the exact same corporation, ICF. At this point, it is prudent to ask the question, who is ICF?

ICF Is the Biggest Player That You Have Never Heard Of

ICF International
partners with government and commercial clients to deliver consulting services and technology solutions in climate change, energy, environment, transportation, social programs, defense, and homeland security markets. In my mind, this established ICF as a major player in the introduction and implementation of the globalist agenda by designing matching Federal programs. And as it turned out they are a major player in Obamacare through their subsidiary acquisition, Caliber Associates.

Caliber is an “established leader in providing research, consulting, and innovation in human services and human resource issues.” ICF acquired Caliber in 2005 in order “to serve HHS, the U.S. Department of Justice, the U.S. Department of Defense, and the U.S. Department of Education.” Caliber Associates and their four contributing authors to the HHS/CPS field manual, which will be used to enforce child welfare regulations, was the undeniable link to Obamacare through this field manual. But as I discovered, the rabbit hole went even deeper.

After I found the co-authors of the HHS/CPS policy manual which will guide these forced home inspections, I smelled the distinct odor of the United Nations and Agenda 21 and sure enough, this was exactly what I found.

The United Nations and Obamacare

At times, I feel that I have the globalist playbook and I am able to often anticipate their next move. Please allow me to briefly illustrate how the globalists have operated in another area, education, and then draw the parallel to how the UN is deeply involved in Obamacare.

The Common Core Curriculum, which is sweeping the nation’s education system, was the product of “Education for All.” Education for All comes from the United Nations education arm, the United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). Common Core went from UNESCO to the National Governors Association who in turn farmed out the development of the details to various NGO’s, which in turn sent the standards to each state for implementation. This is the standard model that the globalists follow when implementing a controversial program and Obamacare follows a similar pattern as did Common Core.

There is no doubt that the provisions of allegedly protecting children in Obamacare, originated with the United Nations.

In the United Nations document entitled, Human Rights, Persons with Disabilities, ICF and the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (Training toolkit),

implementation for programs designed to help people, children in particular, with disabilities, came from the World Health Organization (WHO) [Page 36], UNESCO [Page 37], the International Labour Organization (ILO) [Page 36] and the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF)[Page 38]. As one can see from the title, ICF and the UN have partnered to protect people/children with disabilities.


Please remember that earlier in the article, I made the point that the HHS/CPS field manual referred to neglected children as children who have disabilities. It is quite apparent that any of the conditions listed in the HHS/CPS manual will produce children who have disabilities. And in the case of Ceausescu, in which he seized hundreds of thousands of children who had “disabilities” and planned to use them for purposes of the state, the same picture is beginning to emerge with regard to Obamacare and the home invasion visits. I can draw no other conclusion than Obamacare is State-sponsored child slavery.

Under Obamacare, virtually every aspect of parenting is criminalized. Any child can be considered to have a disability for which the State is the only legitimate treatment source. When Obama was first running for President in 2008, he promised to build a civilian security force that “was just as strong, just as well-funded as our military.” And when one combines this conspiracy with Obama’s Executive Order 13603 which calls for a mandatory civilian conscription to complement a military draft, it is clear that this lunatic is planning to enslave a large segment of the population, and he will obtain many of his conscripts from Obamacare. And many of you who are familiar with Agenda 21 and their expressed views toward parental rights and the rights of children, do not need me to connect the dots, you already have done so.

My advice to all parents: don’t answer the door on New Year’s Day 2014 when Obamacare begins to be implemented.

In the video below, college professor and MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry says your children are not yours – they are owned by the community. She says public education has failed because we have not allowed the state to confiscate more of our money.

" We are never invested as much in public education as we should have because we've always had a kind of private notion of children. Your kid is 'yours' and totally your responsibility We've never had a very collective notion that these are 'our' children. So part of it is we have to break through our kind of private idea that kids belong to their parents or that kids belong to their familes, in recognizing that kids belong to whole communities. Once it's EVERYBODY'S responsibility and not just the hoursefold, then we start makng better investments" ... MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry


Published on Apr 4, 2013

On March 23, my colleague Mark Finkelstein noted how MSNBC's Melissa Harris-Perry considers the unborn child a "thing" which takes a "lot of money" to "turn into a human," costing thousands of dollars to care for each year of his/her life. Now it appears that Harris-Perry thinks that, after they're born, children fundamentally belong to the state.

Narrating a new MSNBC "Lean Forward" spot, the Tulane professor laments that we in America "haven't had a very collective notion that these are our children." "[W]e have to break through our kind of private idea that kids belong to their parents or kids belong to their families, and recognize that kids belong to their communities," Harris-Perry argued.

"Once it's everybody's responsibility and not just the households, then we start making better investments." By "investments," of course, Harris-Perry means things like spending "as much in public education as we should have."

Of course, if as Harris-Perry holds,"[t]he cost to raise a child [is] $10,000 a year up to $20,000 a year," and if children should be viewed as collectively "owned" by "society," then taken to its logical extension, a woman's choices about having a child should be informed by the economic considerations of the "community," would it not? But of course, that logic would take someone to justify, for example, the "one-child" policy in Communist China.

What's more, the notion of collective responsibility for children was a philosophy that undergirded the Cultural Revolution in Communist China under Chairman Mao. I bring that up because, as you may recall, another Harris-Perry "Lean Forward" spot contains a reference to a "great leap forward," which calls to mind the disastrous agricultural reform plan which starved millions of Chinese to death in the 1950s.

News Busters: MSNBC's Harris-Perry: America's 'Kids Belong to Their Communities'

"We have to break through our private idea that kids belong to their parents or kids belong to their families,” says the professor of political science at Tulane University, where she is founding director of the Anna Julia Cooper Project on Gender, Race, and Politics in the South. Kids belong to whole communities, she insists, and once we realize this we’ll make “better investments” in government indoctrination of children.

Melissa Harris-Perry is regurgitating the Obama “you didn’t build that” meme. “If you’ve got a business, you didn’t build that,” Obama said during a campaign stop in Roanoke, Virginia. “Somebody else made that happen,” it was not the result of individual initiative. “The Internet didn’t get invented on its own. Government research created the Internet so that all the companies could make money off the Internet.”

“Like most people of his ideological bent, Obama either cannot or will not distinguish between society — which is created through peaceful commerce and other forms of private cooperation — and the state — an anti-social artifact built on conquest, coercion, and confiscation of wealth,” writes William Grigg. “Government produces nothing; it is an exercise in pure consumption and, usually, the destruction of capital. As Nietzsche famously said, everything the State has is stolen.”

Stephan Kinsella argues that the primary social evil today is a lack of respect for the fundamental right of self-ownership [and self determination]. Obama and Harris-Perry represent the other side of this argument. They believe, as do all Marxists and socialists, that the state, what Harris-Perry calls the “community,” owns the individual.

Harris-Perry urges us to “break through” the “private idea” that individuals own themselves. Like Marx, she believes the individual is a “communal being” and all human worth is intractably linked to the community, the collective, and the state is the ultimate manifestation of the collective will.

Harris-Perry’s homage to the state was part of a two-year long, multi-million dollar advertising campaign by MSNBC. The network, created through a merger between Microsoft and the death merchant General Electric, has long provided ideological fodder for president Obama, the proud Marxist (as Yuri Maltsev, former advisor to Mikhail Gorbachev, characterized him). “We can go backward, or we can keep moving forward,” he said during a speech at Carnegie Mellon University. “And I don’t know about you, but I want to move forward.”

It’s no mistake Obama’s handlers and MSNBC adopted the slogan. The word “forward” has a special meaning in socialist political terminology. It was frequently used as a name for socialist and communist newspapers and periodicals in the 20th century. “The slogan ‘Forward!’ reflected the conviction of European Marxists and radicals that their movements reflected the march of history, which would move forward past capitalism and into socialism and communism,” writes Victor Morton.

It seems incomprehensible that a multinational corporation like MSNBC would embrace communism. In fact, as Gary Allen noted, it is quite natural.

“If one understands that socialism is not a share-the-wealth program, but is in reality a method to consolidate and control the wealth, then the seeming paradox of superrich men promoting socialism becomes no paradox at all,” he wrote. “Instead it becomes the logical, even the perfect tool of power-seeking megalomaniacs. Communism, or more accurately, socialism, is not a movement of the downtrodden masses, but of the economic elite.”

“The state must declare the child to be the most precious treasure of the people” – Adolph Hitler, Mein Kampf

Hiotler and German child


by Linda Schrock Taylor

March 3, 2003-

“When an opponent declares,
‘I will not come over to your side.’
I calmly say, ‘Your child belongs to us already…
What are you? You will pass on.
Your descendants, however,
now stand in the new camp.
In a short time they will know nothing
else but this new community.’”
~ Adolf Hitler-

Each day I am reminded that the collectivist agenda behind public ‘schooling’ is not a myth, and that it has accomplished more of its goals than we would want to believe. We must remember that the ‘project’ began around 1840 and realize that my generation — my nearing-retirement generation — may be the last adult citizens with a real understanding of the Original Intent for this nation, and any comprehension of the deceptiveness and evil that drives this global plot to ensnare and enslave our children for mindless service in the global vision for a Brave New World.

If we hold any hopes for a return to the America of our Founding Fathers, and to accurate interpretations of the US Constitution, we must act now, each of us teaching and leading as Elders, as in The Giver, and take back our educational decision-making roles. If we fail in the mission to force the federal STATE to release its unconstitutional strings and control over our local educational decisions — and, rest assured, we will fail in such an attempt — then we must opt for euthanasia and assist the school monolith in dying as quickly, and as painlessly, as possible. We might name our mission, “Hospice for Government Schooling.”

If we have thoughtfully prepared for, then succeed in bringing about THE END of public education, we can request cremation, hold a quick funeral, then build or support, in each community, schools that educate our children for free lives in a free America, rather than for mental and physical enslavement in a world of global, national, state and local Hitler-types.

We really have no other choice, if we care about the futures for our children and grandchildren. We must act, even if it means giving up our luxuries; our second properties; our false reassurances that “I don’t see it affecting my life because my standard of living has only gone up during my lifetime.” We must discipline ourselves to look further than the noses on our faces; our social security; our ease in retirement. Our heirs will not have good things in life if we allow the collectivist remaking of our values to continue.

Just yesterday, with reading and math scores plummeting across the nation; with both student and teacher motivation and effectiveness at embarrassing lows, I was invited to a workshop — “Shaping Character: Creating a Culture of Virtues in Our Schools.” This title seems to me incongruent in light of their claim that “You have been entrusted with the future. We know how important that is to you. That is why our seminars offer only the best classroom-tested teaching methods — not trendy, theory-based fads.” Maybe I am just getting too old, for I interpret “shaping character” and “creating a culture of virtues” as fads; I interpret “teaching methods” as ways to teach the Three R’s; to teach them effectively; and to teach them NOW. I believe that the teaching of character and values belongs in the homes and in the churches, not in schools, and certainly not with the goal of ‘reshaping’ any of our children.

The brochure promises “100% Satisfaction Guaranteed!” and notes that this institute “offers dozens of seminar topics in hundreds of locations all over the United States.” (I wonder if they offer any seminars on how to actually teach reading, or on how to choose and implement, math curriculum and instruction, which can raise the test scores that have been lowered by the Chicago Everyday Math; the University of Chicago math books; and/or all of their clones? I may inquire…) It crossed my mind than I could attend this seminar, as a representative of those self-proclaimed curmudgeons among us. It might be rather fun to be the person with the questions, who already knows the real answers — those answers which, in all likelihood, will be avoided in such a workshop as this.

This workshop caught my attention, not because of any direction towards educational and academic goals, but because of its offer to train teachers in how to remold your and my children. The flyer promises that attendees “will learn:

  • “ The simple elements of character honored by all cultures and spiritual traditions — 52 basic virtues!
  • How to use the ‘Language of Virtues’ to draw out the best in your students.
  • Proven methods to create a culture of virtues and reduce violence in your school!
  • 5 practical strategies to bring out the best in ALL students
  • Success stories from educators throughout the world”(Bold print is theirs from the flyer.)

Certainly I want, as we all do, for children to have spiritual values that assist them in self-control, and motivate them to learn. However, I believe that these outcomes can usually be brought about by simply teaching every capable child to read, spell, speak, and write accurately, prior to their entry into third grade, then by offering them the libraries, the wisdom of the ages, and productive careers available to knowledgeable, competent, well-read persons. My radar for ‘collectivist goals’ begins to hum when I read that two of the five strategies of “Shaping Character” are: — “Honor the spirit — how to help students find purpose and meaning. — Practice the art of Spiritual Companioning to really listen and encourage moral choices.” (Again, bold lettering is from the advertisement flyer.)

My fear is that, with all of the learning, materials and products being promised and guaranteed, attendees will decide to implement the information in their classrooms, in place of remediating delayed reading and math skills. Attendees are promised “a wealth of ideas you can implement immediately” but it appears that all of the ideas will be on how to ‘reshape’ students, rather than how to educate them according to academic standards and goals.

The workshops will be offered in Wichita, Kansas; Cleveland, Ohio; and Grand Rapids, Michigan. Take a moment to wonder how many of your children’s teachers will attend this workshop, or one of the many others offered by this organization, or other seminars offered by any of the numerous organizations with similar agendas. “Staff development and in-service” offerings are big business, and although many appear to offer solutions to the corruption, and seem to offer assistance in a realignment of American educational misdirection, many, in fact, use the fortunate (for them) state of miseducation to earn speaking fees and sell books, rather than to present and champion true corrective measures.

After looking at examples of the training offered to public school teachers, you may well decide to again refigure your family budget; to further assess and define your educational priorities for your children. You may decide, this time, to actually begin checking out the private and parochial schools in your area, or the materials and support available for homeschooling.

If each of us withdraws our children and our grandchildren from the public schools, the repercussions will bring about the death of these unhealthy centers for ‘childhood indoctrination.’ In certain medical cases, if one continues to feed a terminal patient, death and suffering are only prolonged. We are facing such a quandary in regards to the disease that has taken over government schooling. However, if we, family-by-family, pull our children out of the public schools, the state and federal dollars to those schools, based as they are on ‘head count,’ will be reduced accordingly, allowing the institutions to atrophy and eventually close their doors due to loss of interest and their lifeblood — taxpayer money.

It appears to be the kindest decision we can make, not only for our children who bear the burden for the future of America, but also for our teachers who are frustrated and saddened by the level to which schooling has sunk in this nation. In addition, the economic benefit will be great, for our tax burden will be lessened, bringing much-needed financial relief in this era of a constricting economy.

The Departments of Education in all fifty states and at the national level can be closed, lifting even greater tax burdens from the shoulders of present and future taxpayers. Individuals will be able to freely decide which types of schooling they choose to support with their newly available monies.

We can save America, and the Original Intent for this nation, by returning total control of education for our future generations; our future leaders; to those closest to them — their families, their churches, their neighborhoods. All of these decisions can, in turn, reestablish states’ rights to their lawful position in the power structure of the United States of America, as detailed and specified in the United States Constitution. That document and its guiding principles were created for free Individualists; certainly not for totalitarian collectivists. We must stop, then reverse, the process that Hitler so clearly recognized, applauded, and in which he placed his faith for the future of the world.

Hitler motorcade

Mankind has faced a bewildering multitude of self-made catastrophes and self-made terrors over the past few millennium, most of which stem from a single solitary conflict between two opposing social qualities:  individualism vs. collectivism.  These two forces of organizational mechanics have gone through evolution after evolution over the years, and I believe the long battle is nearing an apex moment; a moment in which one ideology or the other will become dominant around the world for well beyond the foreseeable future.

The assumption often made amongst academia is that the philosophy that appeals most to our “natural survival imperative” and caters to our desire for innovation will eventually win the day.  That there is no “right or wrong” side; only the effective, and the less effective.  The advanced and the outmoded.  The transcendent, and the archaic.

It should come as no surprise then that most academics and prominent mainstream talking heads often sing the praises of collectivism as the inevitable champion in the war between cultural engines.  Collectivism always presents itself with the flair and sexiness of the “new”, or the progressive, while individualism tends to wear the unpleasant battle scars of hard earned principles and heritage.  Collectivism is the hot looking but mentally unstable bombshell blonde making promises of excitement and long term comfort she has no intention of keeping.  She is so seductive not because she has any profound inner qualities, but because she has a knack for letting you believe she is exactly what you fantasize her to be.  Only when it’s too late do you realize she’s a psychopathic pill popping man-eater…

Collectivism is, in fact, a bastardization of a more useful human condition; namely community.  Inherent in all people is the need for meaningful connection with others, and thus, the world around them, without being forced to sacrifice their own identities and their own souls in the process.  The best representation of this model is the idea of “voluntary community”, where individuals seek out each other and facilitate their own connections.  However, if they can’t find meaningful connection, many people will settle for whatever they can get.

Collectivist structures thrive by shutting down free cultural avenues, manipulating public media, encouraging fear, repression, and bias, and destroying our ability to relate to others in a natural and voluntary way.  Collectivism’s first goal is to distract and ISOLATE individuals from one another, so that honest community is difficult to build.  Its second goal is to then offer a false community; a cardboard cutout or proxy that entices the public with fabricated and superficial connections that barely satiate our inner hunger for relationship with our fellow man (Facebook, anyone?).  It uses our thirst for understanding against us, and lures us into a system of psychological enslavement where no understanding will ever be found.

Karl Marx is famous for stating that “religion is the opium of the people”, a belief that communists like Mao Zedong adopted.  But, Mao was not opposed to “opiates for the masses” per say, only citizen organizations that could not be control.  Mao simply replaced the various deities of the Chinese people with the religion of the collectivist state.

Like any opiate, collectivism instills addiction.  The feeling of belonging to something bigger than oneself (even if it ends up being false) creates ecstatic euphoria, a euphoria that weakens as time passes unless the addict commits himself even deeper into the hive mind.  Soon, every original aspect of the person’s character is forgotten and replaced entirely by his hyper-obsession with the collective.  The whole of his identity becomes a shallow product of the state and he may even defend that state, no matter how corrupt, to the death.  He now treats any criticism of the system as a personal attack on himself, because everything he is has been given to him by the collective.  If the collective is a sham, then so is he.

Collectivism as a philosophy is a perfect tool for oligarchy.  The men who dominate such systems rarely if ever actually believe in the tenets they espouse.  They sell the idea of single-minded society as a nurturing light that will create group supremacy, prosperity, and perfect safety.  But the truth is, they couldn’t care less about accomplishing any of these things for the masses.  They are only interested in exploiting the promise to galvanize the population into a fraudulent community, a dystopia in which the citizens police each other in the name of the state, giving the elites total dominance.

The most vital aspect of the collectivist process is convincing the public that the individual citizen is not sovereign, but is actually the property of the group.  Many readers have already witnessed the statements of MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry, who believes your children are not yours to raise, but products of the collective to be molded.

But this is only a taste of collectivist zealotry at work.  Here are just a few of the most prominent disinformation tactics and methodologies used by centralization cultists to twist the fabric of nations and enslave individuals.

1) The Blank Slate

Blank slate theory stems from the Freudian model of psychology and has been adopted and refined by modern mainstream clinical psychiatry.  The theory contends that all psychological processes and character traits of an individual are merely products of repetition and memory derived through environmental experience.  Psychiatry extends the theory into biology in the belief that all human behavior is nothing more that a series of reactionary chemical processes in the brain that determine pre-coded genetic responses built up from the conditioning of one’s environment.  The foundational assertion of blank slate theory is that human beings are born empty.  That we are bio-computers; soft machinery, just waiting to be programmed.

The blank slate argument is essential to the philosophy of collectivism.  If every person is born without inherent characteristics or spirit, and all people are manufactured by environmental conditions alone, then, collectivists contend, there is no such thing as true individualism.  Programmed people cannot act, they can only react according to their conditioning.  Therefore, they have no inherent ability to choose, or to determine their own destinies.

If a society can be convinced that this theory is fact, then the inner self (the source of individualism), no longer bears any meaning.  The environment is then seen as the only determinant that people should care about.  Environment becomes the sole master of their lives, and whoever controls the environment, controls them.

The problem is, blank slate theory has been proven time and time again to be absolutely false.  From the work of MIT professor Steven Pinker, to the psychological studies of Carl Jung, to the linguistic studies of Noam Chomsky, as well as numerous studies in mathematics, quantum physics, and anthropology; every field of science has produced more than ample evidence that human beings are not born as blank slates.  Rather, they are born with the very building blocks of thought, language, mathematics, and even predispositions towards certain personality traits.

The most important of all of these discoveries though is attributed to Carl Jung, who found that moral conceptions are in fact inborn.  The existence of “psychological dualities” at birth (including an unconscious sense of good and evil) means that all people come into the world with the ability to CHOOSE.  Environment only determines our lives if we allow it to.  This is why the worst of men sometimes come from the most sheltered and safe environments, while the best of men often come from broken and terrible homes.

Collectivists have struggled desperately for ages to deny or destroy the concept of inherent individualism.  They want us to believe that everything that we have was “given to us” by them.  As long as we know they have given us nothing, they can never truly win…

2) Individualism Is The Same As Selfishness

Collectivists repeat this lie Ad nauseum.  The suggestion is simple – even the smallest individual actions “affect everyone”, thus, everyone is culpable for the problems of the whole.  And, if everyone is responsible for the problems of the whole, then everyone must take responsibility for everyone else.  The job of society then, at least in the opinion of collectivists, is to keep every individual member of that society in line.  One unruly cog could bring the entire machine to a halt.  Anyone who refuses to submit to the directives of the group is bound to hurt the group, and is, therefore, selfish, or even criminal.

The insanity of this way of thinking should be obvious.  First of all, it assumes that the directives of the group are always logically and morally sound.  It assumes that because the majority of people have come to a particular conclusion, that conclusion must, by default, be correct.  The fact is, history has shown that at any given moment the majority is wrong about something, if not most things, and these mass trespasses against reason and conscience always end up being stopped by a minority of individualists.  The greatest social achievements of mankind are the result of the ingenuity and courage of individuals who in turn inspired others.

Perhaps the best possible thing is for the machine to be sabotaged at times by “selfish individuals’.  Perhaps individuals are actually more necessary to the survival of the group than the group is to the survival of individuals…

3) The Family Unit Cannot Be Trusted To Raise The Next Generation

In the quest for a collectivist system, all competing interests must be debased.  The individual must have nowhere to turn for guidance or comfort but the system itself.  Children become a highly sought after target, because their inborn personalities are easier to oppress, and because they are always dependent on someone for their survival already.  The collective (usually in the form of government) desires to be that “someone” the child depends on, and so, the role of the parents has to be diminished.

Collectivists in the U.S. use the “It Takes A Village” approach in order to marginalize the family unit and paint parents as secondary figures in the development of their own offspring.  Under this philosophy, each subsequent generation is seen as a kind of “commodity”, a resource that belongs to the group and that must be “protected” from the damaging ideologies of the parents.  One has only to examine the extreme politicization of American public schools today to see this process in action.  The goal is to push the idea of family into obscurity, while forcing children into indoctrination factories that instill specific behaviors through fear, shame, and propaganda.

No one, and no entity, however, has the capacity to care for any child more than that child’s own parents.  Some parents do fail in their responsibilities, but what kind of role model does government really make in their place?  Governments lie, cheat, steal, rape, murder, and mass murder in order to get what they want.  Government has nothing worthwhile to teach anyone, including our children.

4) Global Problems Will Be Solved By Collectivism

I find in my examinations that the opposite is true.  Most global problems are CAUSED by collectivism, not solved by it.  The greater good is always subjective.  The group will always be an abstract illusion held together by nothing more than the whims of the individual.  And, in the grand scheme of things, only individuals make any difference in the course of human cultural development.  The collectivist strategy requires the suppression of individualism, otherwise, they cannot obtain power.  That means, the very bedrock of their philosophy is a threat to the security of the future.  In their obscene quest to control tomorrow, they ensure that tomorrow dies.

They promise community, and they give you isolation.  They promise prosperity, and they give you servitude.  They promise safety, and they give you a land of perpetual terror.  They promise purpose, and give you insignificance.  They promise peace, and they foment war after war after war, reaping turmoil all around us, as well as within us.

Our only hope is to maintain the integrity of our heart, and our will.  The proclamation that the individual is subject to the necessities of the collective is a con.  There is no such prerogative.  In the end, there is no power over us but that which we give away.  The state doesn’t matter.  The group doesn’t matter.  The “greater good” doesn’t matter.  All that matters is the life of the individual.  Each individual.  For when all men rediscover their individualism, only then will we be able to move forward as a whole.



Exclusive: Joseph Farah blows giant hole in MSNBC host’s collectivism argument

By Joseph Farah | World Net Daily

“We have to break through our kind of private idea that kids belong to their parents or kids belong to their families and recognize that kids belong to whole communities.”

– MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry

Much has been said about Melissa Harris-Perry’s claim that kids don’t belong to their parents and families but rather to the community at large.

It’s worth pointing out that this statement, which agrees entirely with the philosophy of genocidal tyrants from Adolf Hitler to Josef Stalin, was not just the spontaneous raving of one crazy, irresponsible, thoughtless cable TV show host. It was a calculated, well-considered statement, edited and approved by MSNBC’s management and marketing team and used as a network promotional ad.

So maybe we should examine the consequences of the irrational and inconsistent philosophy behind it.

Melissa Harris-Perry and the corporate network for which she works promote abortion on demand.

They do so by claiming it is appropriate to kill unborn babies because it’s a “woman’s right to choose.”

Yet, they believe once those babies are born, they belong collectively to all of us; thus we’re all responsible for them and their well-being.

Do you recognize the intellectual incoherence? Do you see the cognitive dissonance?

Perry expanded on her thoughts recently, adding:

  • “I stand by that statement. Families have first and primary responsibility for their children. The private sphere of our homes and families deserves great deference in policy and in practice … but I believe our children are not our private property, they are not just extensions of ourselves. They are independent, individual beings.”
  • “This is about whether we as a society, expressing our collective will through our public institutions, including our government, have a right to impinge on individual freedoms in order to advance a common good. And that is exactly the fight that we have been having for a couple hundred years.”
  • “Our kids who will inherit our nation belong to all of us and we have a collective responsibility to them. I hit a nerve with a 30-second promotional ad, and the nerve that I hit is connected to the central nervous system of our democracy, at the synapses of civic engagement is the electrical current that forges our more perfect union.”

She meant what she said and she said what she meant. And the corporate media network for which she works stands behind her.

It’s obvious this is not a person who has the least respect for the Judeo-Christian and American tradition of individual rights.

Yet, she and her network believe an individual woman has an absolute right to extinguish the life of an unborn child for any reason or no reason whatsoever.

How can it be that individuals have the perfect right to kill preborn children (and many like her, including Barack Obama, would include post-born children as well), but their rights with regard to children end at some point thereafter – at which point they become wards of the state?

Does that make any sense?

Let’s pretend, for a moment, we agree with Harris-Perry that children belong to all of us collectively. How can an individual decision be made to snuff out the life of a child either in utero or shortly after birth?

If all kids really belong to everyone, then the logical conclusion is that no individual has the right to take the life of any child – born or unborn. You can’t have it both ways.

But, then again, the post-modern notion that the state has the power to invent “rights” for the purpose of dividing society into groups for the purpose of empowering government has always been intellectually, spiritually and morally bankrupt.

It leads only to totalitarianism and genocide.



by Dave Hodges -

Where will it all end? Where does the power of the state cease and individual rights begin? According to the banksters that have hijacked our government and our media, there is no end in sight.

Under these criminal banksters, they have participated in the MERS fraud which has led to wrongful foreclosure on three million properties. They have also looted the funds of MF Global investors. The banksters are planning to come after our pensions as they have done in Greece and Spain.  These same criminals plan to seize our 401K’s, IRA’s and will loot our bank accounts as they have in Cyprus. Additionally, Obama and his thugs are coming to steal our guns. They won’t stop until they own everything.

All of the banksters egregious transactions pale in comparison to what they have planned for American parents.  As most already know, MSNBC has long been the mouthpiece for the banksters on Wall Street and the Federal Reserve. I never anticipated that these animals would go this far, but these proven criminals now want to steal children from their parents. Yes, I mean literally take them away without cause.Does this also mean that you and I own Harris-Perry’s children as well? It is obvious that she is bucking for a position on the CFR for espousing the philosophy of Agenda 21.

Harris-Perry, who is also a columnist for The Nation and a professor of political science at Tulane, is presently declining all interview requests on this issue, as is MSNBC.

It is a frightening consideration that this woman is teaching impressionable young men and women at a major university. Perhaps, Senator Joe McCarthy was correct that America has been taken over by communists back in the 1950′s. Even bombastic talk show host, Rush Limbaugh, and that “spooky” commentator, Glenn Beck are referring to these misguided statements as being of a communistic origin.

Perry-Harris outrageous comments remind me of the ridiculous book that Hillary Clinton wrote entitled It Takes a Village to Raise a Child. Both works popularize the notion that we view all people as property of the state. I for one am sick of it. I do not exist for the benefit of Rockefeller and Rothschild. It takes a Village Idiot to say that children belong to the state.

When is enough, enough, America?
