Education For A Modern Republic

I have discussed on my programs the type of education that Sam Adams received and in particular what his Harvard experience was like. Quiet simply, the majority of education in America today has nothing to do with Founders intent to raise up self-governing Citizens. I’ll leave it at that or as you know I’ll get very wordy in short order. 

With that, I will instead reference you to what Dr. Benjamin Rush wrote in 1789. Just to wet your mind a bit I am going to quote from the second paragraph then give you the opportunity to read my marked up version but…. I will also give you the link to the clean version so you don’t have to be influenced by my prejudices.

Dr. Rush wrote:

“The first remark that I shall make upon this subject is that an education in our own is to be preferred to an education in a foreign country. The principle of patriotism stands in need of the reinforcement of prejudice, and it is well known that our strongest prejudices in favor of our country are formed in the first one and twenty years of our lives. The policy of the Lacedamonians is well worthy of our imitation. When Antipater demanded fifty of their children as hostages for the fulfillment of a distant engagement, those wise republicans refused to comply with his demand but readily offered him double the number of their adult citizens, whose habits and prejudices could not be shaken by residing in a foreign country. Passing by, in this place, the advantages to the community from the early attachment of youth to the laws and constitution of their country, I shall only remark that young men who have trodden the paths of science together, or have joined in the same sports, whether of swimming, skating, fishing, or hunting, generally feel, through life, such ties to each other as add greatly to the obligations of mutual benevolence.”

My Marked-up pdf of  THOUGHTS UPON THE MODE OF EDUCATION PROPER FOR A REPUBLIC

Here is the link to this paper at The Founders Constitution from the University of Chicago

 

Now our Patriotism isn’t shaken by education in a foreign land but by foreigners educating those who should be Patriots. Instead we have Neo-marxists of every flavor and descentors** becoming dissenters with the intent of destroying the Republic as it was Intended to function. To the point that I always will say that ‘The Anti-federalists’ got it right.

**descentors: Those who are in “a moral, social, or psychological decline into a specified undesirable state:” Apple Dictionary, version 2.2.1 (194)

Part 1 – Self-Inflicted Eviction

TAXED ENOUGH ALREADY?

My Vote

© www.coldbacon.com

The TEA Party is about its roots and definition being “Taxed Enough Already”! In many instances the various organizations across the US have had effect in the past impacting national, States and most important local entities. NOW is the time for Citizens to Re-Engage!

Across the States and in Ohio in particular, this week was sent out a Call to Action email that is full of information which brings citizens back into focus regarding “Local Issues” specifically Levies. The November ballot is ripe with levies that are not sustainable nor are they affordable. Many of the Citizens in this authors home county, Geauga County, were hit hard in the Primary cycle with Levies that in some cases will last for 30+ years. Longer than many of the aging population in the County will be live for.

This author, in May participated in the Liberator Network Conference. From that conference a nine-county N.E. Ohio working group has formed to focus on “Local Taxation and Taxing Authorities”.

Many of the Taxing Authorities, known as taxing Subdivisions, not only get state money as mandated in the Ohio Constitution but have the ability to tax the Citizens of the County. This is all done with your permission, by your vote on Levies.

When you look at the November Ballot – You better be asking if you can continue to afford the Multitude of Levies! The Tax Working Group has the Data that says YOU Cannot – You are TAX Enough Already!

Emotionalism can be deceptive

So don’t get all emotional about the Levies and let the proponents of the Levies get all mushy and emotional with you. We will be coming out with the Hard Facts soon and reality is that you should just start considering that:

1. Out of the Nine NE Ohio counties that submitted their taxing authorities data: Geauga is the highest taxed on property exceeding $2,000.00 per capita.

2. In the last ten years our taxes have gone up about 10%, while

3. Population growth has remained stagnant and,

4. Population Aging in the County for ages over 65 has increased by 28% and,

5. Incomes have dropped over 8% – And a whole lot more information forthcoming that clearly tells we Citizens that –

All the Levies are UN-affordable!

It Is Time To ACT!

or…. You are in the long run inducing Self-Inflicted Eviction.

Who’s Your Master of the Universe? Addiction to Socialism in Social Media

Who’s Your Master of the Universe?

Addiction to Socialism in Social Media


By Tom Niewulis  

The American Mount Olympus and Rome is now designated to be in all actuality a valley and a region in the Pacific North West, yes Silicon Valley and the seven hills of Seattle. The deep digital idolized applications of these modern Olympians are preloaded on everyone’s laptops, desktops, tablets and yes, our phones. In a sense, the movie ‘The Matrix’ is revealing the ‘Pods’ sustaining and creating the realities for all connected. Are we truly living the Toffler trilogy that quaked techno-cultural change captured in the leading quote from “Future Shock” being: “The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn.”

Is it not ludicrous to ascribe some attributes of mythological deities or laughably the cartoon/movie characters, to business and financial moguls not giving them more credit then they deserve. Is it not the demand of the masses for ‘Free this or that’ that gives rise to the power of these intrepid entrepreneurs? Could it be that the Toffler statement – “Information overload will lead to ‘future shock syndrome’ as an individual will suffer severe physical and mental disturbances.” – be more than a syndrome but now an addiction?

Every time I hear or read in the media that the ‘Masters of the Universe’ are doing this or that, my imagination can envision these moguls of technology and finance playing the games of the Olympian gods on “Jason and the Argonauts” as they search for the Golden Fleece. So our modern story can take the lessons of mythology as a metaphor for the actions of global business oligarchs or it can twist to the social political shift of the masses wanting something for nothing.

Wait, isn’t there another statement to the effect that “There is no free lunch”? The extensibility of that questions rips to the heart of every individual that assumes that the Internet and the content is free! The reality is that every application on the Internet, every system made available to the public is in fact the property of a company. So is an individual’s expectations froth with misguided ideology in that using the likes of a search engine, browser of social media software should be free? Has the “entity in the Matrix pod” developed such a dependency and expectation of their being plugged in to the environment such that all is given freely – while not knowing the tentacles that hold every aspect of their persona for the use and pleasure of the ‘masters’? Isn’t this digital socialism?

Here is the hard fact, that is not thought through because of all of the emotionalism manipulated by those other high seated Olympians in the political temples: Social media and all that lives on the Internet absolutely are ‘For Profit’ Businesses (period)! Hence there is NO FREE LUNCH. Yet the digital ideology of socialism is widely accepted even by so called ‘conservatives’.

How did it happen that even so called Conservatives find themselves in the battle with the Marxists and all in-between to retain the addiction of socialism in social media when otherwise they cry with great tears that free markets must prevail? Are we seeing a conundrum of “Selective Socialism”? It is fine and dandy to get all the technology free-bees over the Internet one can run away with but other than that socialism is not acceptable in our Constitutional Republic – Hmmm!

I have to take U.S. all back to Toffler once again. I know there are many who have no idea who Toffler is. Let it be noted that he was Futurist and a Marxist that somehow redeemed himself into a neo-free market Gingrich Conservative… And Gingrich claimed to be “conservative futurist”. No matter how you look at them, the operative clause in Webster’s Dictionary for ‘futurism’ is: “impose controls”. In the case of Gingrich, he had been a friend with both the Toffler’s since 1970, which allowed for the incorporation of this influence into the “Contract With America”. Yes, before the Olympians in Silicon Valley there were the Futurists in ‘The Swamp’ of DC who in so subtlety determined that Toffler’s ‘Third Wave’ was “the seminal work of our time”. A simple step toward a conclusion here is that leading Republicans and Newt were immersed in the means of blending socialism into the Republic through technology, education and cultural change.

They were and are the intellectual elites that Thomas Sowell writes about.

Accepting socialism in social media, demanding that ‘Free Lunch’ from private profit-driven companies, Conservative lobbyist groups and political groups crying foul when they are sent to the bottom of the time-line feed or thrown off any particular site – What asininities to clamor for equality by businesses that are takers, purchasers of ones identity in exchange for the perception of a right to free speech on systems and software that are as was stated, Private Property of the creators – the Olympians of Silly-cone Valley.

Let me try to bring the analogy of the allegory concerning the comics of “the Masters of the Universe” and “Olympian gods” in the context of the vast majority addicted to socialism via social media.

Long before the triad of the Toffler’s and Gingrich there have been those that look to dominate society by excreting their self-assumed superiority as reminiscent of Caesar, Nebuchadnezzar or the technologist Sennacherib of those really ancient days. But then again, we don’t teach ancient history let alone back to the futurists of the ‘70’s. All of these influencers of intelligentsia had an effect in what the general society would believe even in the political strains of Conservatism.

I can easily conclude that the greater numbers of these Olympian idealists of societal influence and business magnates see themselves as ‘masters of the universe’ forgetting that in fact they are created beings subject to “The Master of All the Universe”. The ultimate question becomes what master and what society do individuals subscribe to? That does not mean what social media application does one login to but what is ones ultimate worldview that establishes expectation that one deserves, no, has a right to something for nothing yet willing to give every aspect of their persona away to private businesses capitalizing on the essence of their being?

In the end of all my technological and business background, with all that I’ve studied and worked for in the social and political environments – The conclusion is “There Ain’t a Free Lunch in this world”. But I do know that there is a Freedom that supersedes technology, the moguls and the Olympians of Silly-cone Valley. I found and live by that freedom found in the great communications environment – The Bible.

Who is Your Master and how do you justify your addiction to socialism instituted in social media?

In the end, If you really believe that you want your privacy and you desire to maintain your Liberty with a right of Free expression on a communications platform, whether it be a news paper add, telephone call, post card, bill board or other media methods – Well, you have to Pay for it! With that in mind, there are alternatives that are out there, which are becoming that mass communications platform that you want. So, you will have to choose: subscribing to a communications platform that meets your worldview or sticking with socialism by not paying with money, instead paying with your identity and persona to corporate platforms that have the mask of Medusa hiding their glaring nefarious ideologies and intent?

A last thought from Toffler:

“   The Second Wave Society is industrial and based on mass production, mass distribution, mass consumption, mass education, mass media, mass recreation, mass entertainment, and weapons of mass destruction. You combine those things with standardization, centralization, concentration, and synchronization, and you wind up with a style of organization we call bureaucracy.”

Immigration, Invasion, Insurrection and Constitutionalism

By Tom Niewulis (Alter-ego Samuel Adams)

Issues!  Conspiracy!  Scandals! Deceptions!  Collusion’s!   Immigration!

Through all the blast of the media and the rhetoric of Congress to the standing on solid ground of a partially staffed Administration – not a single soul is talking about what the realities of fact and truth are in functional governance – under actual Constitutionalism.

In preparing for my radio program it became evident again that the emotionalism of all the media completely distorts any ability to get to the heart of the matter – How is our Constitutional Republic Intended to function? Frankly, those in government and even the super self-serving lawyers in Congress don’t understand nor do they want to. They have become so dependent on the donors and lobbyists that they have thrown the concepts of Constitutionalism deep in the sub-basement of the Capital and all the marble bureaucratic buildings in D.C.

How Dare I say this? Simple, I know how to read and reading the Federalist Papers alone gives clear intention (Intent) for how governance should function in the Republic. So before we get to the core issues as indicated by the title let us get one thing very clear: every pundit, talk show host/hostess, politician or bureaucrat that calls this nation a democracy should be heavily chastised, have their ears rung and be thrown out the door for manifesting their ignorance or subversive ideologies. Why? Because we are a Constitutional Republic (period)! If you cannot get that correct then you have no capacity to understand how this nation should function! Continue reading

Business Ethics and Dr. Abraham Kuyper

When did you have that first conversation about work ethics that dove into the plight of the common worker and those terrible rich business owners? Mine was as a young lad sitting on the periphery as my father, his two brothers and a couple of friends sat around playing poker. It was in the early 60’s when the height of the labor vs. management was raging through much of the industries and trades in the United States. The conversations at the card table could become pretty heated since there was an uneven split between the players of corporate/management types (two) and labor/union types (three).

My dad and his oldest brother were of the latter category while the younger brother of the former. Things could get heated as they evaluated the political as well as the monetary discrepancies of rich compared to the middle class. The poor were never a consideration in the conversations, ah, sometimes arguments. I always listened intently because I saw that on the one hand, emotionalism sustained the argument of the majority over the other hand, rational-factual retorts of the minority players at the table. What was the real basis of what was happening and when did the deeper conversation about this with Dad play out? Continue reading

1-25-18 Integrity In The Bureaucracies

The emotionalism of every media outlet screams of a lack of integrity in government. We are seeing the exposure of the infidelity of those who are not only in elected positions but those in local, state and national positions of bureaucracy. And the infidelity that I am referring to is that of oath keeping – keeping ones oath to serve under the framework of Constitutionalism. Let’s begin by thinking of Foundational Principles, which aren’t taught any longer:

A good government implies two things: first, fidelity to the object of government, which is the happiness of the people; secondly, a knowledge of the means by which that object can be best attained. Some governments are deficient in both these qualities; most governments are deficient in the first. I scruple (definition: a feeling of doubt or hesitation with regard to the morality or propriety of a course of action:) not to assert that in American governments too little attention has been paid to the last.

James Madison, Federalist # 62

Let me begin by commenting that I’m froth over the media of all denominations for doing what they do best – drive emotions to levels of irrational beliefs and behaviors. I concede that the progressive – socialists – globalists are the best at it since they are extraordinaire in their use of Hegelian Dialectics (simply word and definition manipulation) such that truth does not matter nor does our Foundational Principles have any relevance for the present.

With that noted, we are now experiencing the three primary characteristics that have and are contributors to this infidelity being: subverted education system, lost national morality and virtue, and finally – the true definition of patriotism as intended.
