A Message for Graduation…And Beyond!

June 8, 2019

A Message for Graduation…And Beyond!

The following graduation address to college students was sent to me by my life-long dear friend Vic Palenske. 

I will dedicate this post to our beloved Grandson, Camren, who is graduating from high school today.

My fact-check revealed that the Mr. Boortz really is the author of this amazing article, but he did not give it as a graduation address. In my judgement, the “graduation address” detail is irrelevant. Mr. Boortz has presented a blast of pure wisdom for all American’s.

The message is timed perfectly for our graduating young Americans. However, this graduation message is needed for everyone; high school graduates, college graduates, teachers, professors and anyone else who has learned to think in radical liberal-leftist ways. 

The message is not a short one, but I challenge you to read it all and, in doing so, behold all of the precepts and virtues that made America the greatest nation on earth. If everyone we could recapture this spirit, we could easily remain the greatest nation on earth for a very long time.

V. Thomas Mawhinney, Ph.D.

The following is quoted material.
Neal Boortz’, author.
“I am honored by the invitation to address you on this august occasion. It’s about time. Be warned, however, that I am not here to impress you; you’ll have enough smoke blown up your bloomers today. And you can bet your tassels I’m not here to impress the faculty and administration. You may not like much of what I have to say, and that’s fine. You will remember it though. Especially after about 10 years out there in the real world. This, it goes without saying, does not apply to those of you who will seek your careers and your fortunes as government employees. 
This gowned gaggle behind me is your faculty. You’ve heard the old saying that those who can – do. Those who can’t – teach. That sounds deliciously insensitive. But there is often raw truth in insensitivity, just as you often find feel-good falsehoods and lies in compassion. Say good-bye to your faculty because now you are getting ready to go out there and do. These folks behind me are going to stay right here and teach. 
By the way, just because you are leaving this place with a diploma doesn’t mean the learning is over. When an FAA flight examiner handed me my private pilot’s license many years ago, he said, “Here, this is your ticket to learn” The same can be said for your diploma. Believe me, the learning has just begun. 
Now, I realize that most of you consider yourselves Liberals. In fact, you are probably very proud of your liberal views. You care so much. You feel so much. You want to help so much. After all, you’re a compassionate and caring person, aren’t you now? Well, isn’t that just so extraordinarily special. Now, at this age, is as good a time as any to be a liberal; as good a time as any to know absolutely everything. You have plenty of time, starting tomorrow, for the truth to set in. 
Over the next few years, as you begin to feel the cold breath of reality down your neck, things are going to start changing pretty fast… Including your own assessment of just how much you really know. 
So here are the first assignments for your initial class in reality: Pay attention to the news, read newspapers, and listen to the words and phrases that proud Liberals use to promote their causes Then, compare the words of the left to the words and phrases you hear from those evil, heartless, greedy conservatives. 
From the Left you will hear “I feel.” From the Right you will hear “I think.” From the Liberals you will hear references to groups — The Blacks, the Poor, the Rich, the Disadvantaged, the Less Fortunate. From the Right you will hear references to individuals. On the Left you hear talk of group rights; on the Right, individual rights. 
That about sums it up, really: Liberals feel. Liberals care. They are pack animals whose identity is tied up in group dynamics. Conservatives think — and, setting aside the theocracy crowd, their identity is centered on the individual. 
 Liberals feel that their favored groups have enforceable rights to the property and services of productive individuals. Conservatives, I among them I might add, think that individuals have the right to protect their lives and their property from the plunder of the masses. 
In college you developed a group mentality, but if you look closely at your diplomas you will see that they have your individual names on them. Not the name of your school mascot, or of your fraternity or sorority, but your name. Your group identity is going away. Your recognition and appreciation of your individual identity starts now. 
If, by the time you reach the age of 30, you do not consider yourself to be a conservative, rush right back here as quickly as you can and apply for a faculty position. These people will welcome you with open arms. They will welcome you, that is, so long as you haven’t developed an individual identity. Once again you will have to be willing to sign on to the group mentality you embraced during the past four years. 
Something is going to happen soon that is going to really open your eyes. You’re going to actually get a full time job! 
You’re also going to get a lifelong work partner. This partner isn’t going to help you do your job. This partner is just going to sit back and wait for payday. This partner doesn’t want to share in your effort, but in your earnings. 
Your new lifelong partner is actually an agent; an agent representing a strange and diverse group of people; an agent for every teenager with an illegitimate child; an agent for a research scientist who wanted to make some cash answering the age-old question of why monkeys grind their teeth. An agent for some poor demented hippie who considers herself to be a meaningful and talented artist, but who just can’t manage to sell any of her artwork on the open market. 
Your new partner is an agent for every person with limited, if any, job skills, but who wanted a job at City Hall. An agent for tin-horn dictators in fancy military uniforms grasping for American foreign aid. An agent for multi-million dollar companies who want someone else to pay for their overseas advertising. An agent for everybody who wants to use the unimaginable power of this agent’s for their personal enrichment and benefit. 
That agent is our wonderful, caring, compassionate, oppressive government Believe me, you will be awed by the unimaginable power this agent has. Power that you do not have. A power that no individual has, or will have. This agent has the legal power to use force, deadly force to accomplish its goals. 
You have no choice here. Your new friend is just going to walk up to you, introduce itself rather gruffly, hand you a few forms to fill out, and move right on in. Say hello to your own personal one ton gorilla. It will sleep anywhere it wants to. 
Now, let me tell you, this agent is not cheap. As you become successful it will seize about 40% of everything you earn. And no, I’m sorry, there just isn’t any way you can fire this agent of plunder, and you can’t decrease its share of your income. That power rests with him, not you. 
So, here I am saying negative things to you about government. Well, be clear on this: It is not wrong to distrust government. It is not wrong to fear government. In certain cases it is not even wrong to despise government for government is inherently evil. Yes, a necessary evil, but dangerous nonetheless, somewhat like a drug. Just as a drug that in the proper dosage can save your life, an overdose of government can be fatal. 
Now let’s address a few things that have been crammed into your minds at this university. There are some ideas you need to expunge as soon as possible. These ideas may work well in academic environment, but they fail miserably out there in the real world. 
First is that favorite buzz word of the media and academia: Diversity! You have been taught that the real value of any group of people – be it a social group, an employee group, a management group, whatever – is based on diversity. This is a favored liberal ideal because diversity is based not on an individuals abilities or character, but on a person’s identity and status as a member of a group. Yes, it’s that liberal group identity thing again. 
Within the great diversity movement group identification – be it racial, gender based, or some other minority status – means more than the individuals integrity, character or other qualifications. 
Brace yourself. You are about to move from this academic atmosphere where diversity rules, to a workplace and a culture where individual achievement and excellence actually count. No matter what your professors have taught you over the last four years, you are about to learn that diversity is absolutely no replacement for excellence, ability, and individual hard work. From this day on every single time you hear the word “diversity” you can rest assured that there is someone close by who is determined to rob you of every vestige of individuality you possess. 
We also need to address this thing you seem to have about “rights.” We have witnessed an obscene explosion of so-called “rights” in the last few decades, usually emanating from college campuses. 
You know the mantra: You have the right to a job. The right to a place to live. The right to a living wage. The right to health care. The right to an education. You probably even have your own pet right – the right to a Beemer for instance, or the right to have someone else provide for that child you plan on downloading in a year or so. 
Forget it. Forget those rights! I’ll tell you what your rights are. You have a right to live free, and to the results of 60% -75% of your labor I’ll also tell you have no right to any portion of the life or labor of another. 
You may, for instance, think that you have a right to health care. After all, President Obama said so, didn’t he? But you cannot receive health-care unless some doctor or health practitioner surrenders some of his time – his life – to you. He may be willing to do this for compensation, but that’s his choice. You have no “right” to his time or property. You have no right to his or any other person’s life or to any portion thereof. 
You may also think you have some “right” to a job; a job with a living wage, whatever that is. Do you mean to tell me that you have a right to force your services on another person, and then the right to demand that this person compensate you with their money? Sorry, forget it. I am sure you would scream if some urban outdoors men (that would be “homeless person” for those of you who don’t want to give these less fortunate people a romantic and adventurous title) came to you and demanded his job and your money. 
The people who have been telling you about all the rights you have are simply exercising one of theirs – the right to be imbeciles. Their being imbeciles didn’t cost anyone else either property or time. It’s their right, and they exercise it brilliantly. 
By the way, did you catch my use of the phrase “less fortunate” a bit ago when I was talking about the urban outdoors men? That phrase is a favorite of the Left. Think about it, and you’ll understand why. 
To imply that one person is homeless, destitute, dirty, drunk, spaced out on drugs, unemployable, and generally miserable because he is “less fortunate” is to imply that a successful person – one with a job, a home and a future – is in that position because he or she was “fortunate.” The dictionary says that fortunate means “having derived good from an unexpected place.” There is nothing unexpected about deriving good from hard work. There is also nothing unexpected about deriving misery from choosing drugs, alcohol, and the street. 
If the Liberal Left can create the common perception that success and failure are simple matters of “fortune” or “luck,” then it is easy to promote and justify their various income redistribution schemes. After all, we are just evening out the odds a little bit. This “success equals luck” idea the liberals like to push is seen everywhere. Former Democratic presidential candidate Richard Gephardt refers to high-achievers as “people who have won life’s lottery.” He wants you to believe they are making the big bucks because they are lucky. It’s not luck, my friends. It’s choice. One of the greatest lessons I ever learned was in a book by Og Mandino, entitled, “The Greatest Secret in the World.” The lesson? Very simple: “Use wisely your power of choice.” 
That bum sitting on a heating grate, smelling like a wharf rat? He’s there by choice. He is there because of the sum total of the choices he has made in his life. This truism is absolutely the hardest thing for some people to accept, especially those who consider themselves to be victims of something or other – victims of discrimination, bad luck, the system, capitalism, whatever. After all, nobody really wants to accept the blame for his or her position in life. Not when it is so much easier to point and say, “Look! He did this to me!” than it is to look into a mirror and say, “You S. O. B.! You did this to me!” 
The key to accepting responsibility for your life is to accept the fact that your choices, every one of them, are leading you inexorably to either success or failure, however you define those terms. 
Some of the choices are obvious: Whether or not to stay in school. Whether or not to get pregnant. Whether or not to hit the bottle. Whether or not to keep this job you hate until you get another better-paying job. Whether or not to save some of your money, or saddle yourself with huge payments for that new car. 
Some of the choices are seemingly insignificant: Whom to go to the movies with. Whose car to ride home in. Whether to watch the tube tonight, or read a book on investing. But, and you can be sure of this, each choice counts. Each choice is a building block – some large, some small. But each one is a part of the structure of your life. If you make the right choices, or if you make more right choices than wrong ones, something absolutely terrible may happen to you. Something unthinkable. You, my friend, could become one of the hated, the evil, the ugly, the feared, the filthy, the successful, the rich. 
The rich basically serve two purposes in this country. First, they provide the investments, the investment capital, and the brains for the formation of new businesses. Businesses that hire people. Businesses that send millions of paychecks home each week to the un-rich. 
Second, the rich are a wonderful object of ridicule, distrust, and hatred. Few things are more valuable to a politician than the envy most Americans feel for the evil rich. 
Envy is a powerful emotion. Even more powerful than the emotional minefield that surrounded Bill Clinton when he reviewed his last batch of White House interns. Politicians use envy to get votes and power And they keep that power by promising the envious that the envied will be punished: “The rich will pay their fair share of taxes if I have anything to do with it.” The truth is that the top 10% of income earners in this country pays almost 50% of all income taxes collected. I shudder to think what these job producers would be paying if our tax system were any more “fair.” 
You have heard, no doubt, that the rich get richer and the poor get poorer. Interestingly enough, our government’s own numbers show that many of the poor actually get richer, and that quite a few of the rich actually get poorer. But for the rich who do actually get richer, and the poor who remain poor .. there’s an explanation — a reason. The rich, you see, keep doing the things that make them rich; while the poor keep doing the things that make them poor. 
Speaking of the poor, during your adult life you are going to hear an endless string of politicians bemoaning the plight of the poor. So, you need to know that under our government’s definition of “poor” you can have a $5 million net worth, a $300,000 home and a new $90,000 Mercedes, all completely paid for. You can also have a maid, cook, and valet, and a million in your checking account, and you can still be officially defined by our government as “living in poverty.” Now there’s something you haven’t seen on the evening news. 
How does the government pull this one off? Very simple, really. To determine whether or not some poor soul is “living in poverty,” the government measures one thing — just one thing. Income. 
It doesn’t matter one bit how much you have, how much you own, how many cars you drive or how big they are, whether or not your pool is heated, whether you winter in Aspen and spend the summers in the Bahamas, or how much is in your savings account. It only matters how much income you claim in that particular year. This means that if you take a one-year leave of absence from your high-paying job and decide to live off the money in your savings and checking accounts while you write the next great American novel, the government says you are living in poverty.” 
This isn’t exactly what you had in mind when you heard these gloomy statistics, is it? Do you need more convincing? Try this. The government’s own statistics show that people who are said to be “living in poverty” spend more than $1.50 for each dollar of income they claim. Something is a bit fishy here. Just remember all this the next time Charles Gibson tells you about some hideous new poverty statistics. 
Why has the government concocted this phony poverty scam? Because the government needs an excuse to grow and to expand its social welfare programs, which translates into an expansion of its power. If the government can convince you, in all your compassion, that the number of “poor” is increasing, it will have all the excuse it needs to sway an electorate suffering from the advanced stages of Obsessive-Compulsive Compassion Disorder. 
I’m about to be stoned by the faculty here. They’ve already changed their minds about that honorary degree I was going to get. That’s OK, though. I still have my PhD. in Insensitivity from the Neal Boortz Institute for Insensitivity Training. I learned that, in short, sensitivity sucks. It’s a trap. Think about it – the truth knows no sensitivity. Life can be insensitive. Wallow too much in sensitivity and you’ll be unable to deal with life, or the truth, so get over it. 
Now, before the dean has me shackled and hauled off, I have a few random thoughts. 
* You need to register to vote, unless you are on welfare. If you are living off the efforts of others, please do us the favor of sitting down and shutting up until you are on your own again. 
* When you do vote, your votes for the House and the Senate are more important than your vote for President. The House controls the purse strings, so concentrate your awareness there. 
* Liars cannot be trusted, even when the liar is the President of the country. If someone can’t deal honestly with you, send them packing. 
* Don’t bow to the temptation to use the government as an instrument of plunder. If it is wrong for you to take money from someone else who earned it — to take their money by force for your own needs — then it is certainly just as wrong for you to demand that the government step forward and do this dirty work for you. 
* Don’t look in other people’s pockets You have no business there. What they earn is theirs. What you earn is yours. Keep it that way. Nobody owes you anything, except to respect your privacy and your rights, and leave you the hell alone. 
* Speaking of earning, the revered 40-hour workweek is for losers Forty hours should be considered the minimum, not the maximum. You don’t see highly successful people clocking out of the office every afternoon at five. The losers are the ones caught up in that afternoon rush hour The winners drive home in the dark. 
* Free speech is meant to protect unpopular speech. Popular speech, by definition, needs no protection. 
* Finally (and aren’t you glad to hear that word), as Og Mandino wrote, 
1. Proclaim your rarity. Each of you is a rare and unique human being. 
2. Use wisely your power of choice. 
3. Go the extra mile, ‘drive home in the dark. 
Oh, and put off buying a television set as long as you can. Now, if you have any idea at all what’s good for you, you will get out of here and never come back. Class dismissed.” 

Don’t Cry For Me Argentina…..Venezuela or America!

Don’t Cry For Me Argentina…..Venezuela or America!

The political, economic, social, behavioral and spiritual principles that mediate cultural disasters do not change.

When generation after generation falls for the same old themes: Social Justice, Economic Equality, and Democratic Socialism: The following is what happens.

The cultures die a slow and agonizing death! This is exactly what happened to Argentina, it is now happening to Venezuela, and it will continue to  happen to America if we do not return to our founding principles codified in the Constitution of The United Sates of America.

Watch this video,  send it to everyone you know and then vote accordingly!

A Real vs. Fake Commander-in-Chief!

April 15, 2016

A Real vs. Fake Commander-in-Chief!

Feast your eyes on a real Commander-in-Chief!

Now, view America’s fake Commander-in-Chief in action.
   These are the images and actions of our Commander-in-Socialist/Marxist Chief Traitor who despises our military and has has decimated it to Pre-WW II levels of readiness and capability. Obama has engineered all of this at a time of rising threats from North Korea, Russia, Iran and the ongoing WWIII against ISIS.  His goal was to “Transform” (read DESTROY) America and he has nearly done so.
    Obama made a Marine hold an umbrella over his head.  Obama showed no respect to this man or his uniform.

obama-marine-umbrella

Obama disgracefully saluted a Marine with Coffee cup in hand

obama-saulte-marine-coffee

On August 5th 2014 Barack Obama played a game of golf and did not attend the funeral of Major General Harold Greene. General Greene was the highest ranking officer to be killed in combat since the Vietnam war.

gen-greene

Obama did not salute a Marine as he got onto Marine One. The pilot appeared to remind him to do so. Obama never saluted the Marine, but went back and shook his hand.

shakemarinehandobama

    If you are not yet convinced of Obama’s great disrespect of America’s military, please review the many things that his policies have actually accomplished  in his quest to destroy America’s military.
   America is now in enmeshed in WWIII and there is no way-out but to reconstruct our once unparalleled military, as well as our American social and economic infrastructure that supports it.
   Wake-Up America! 
   Vote for very strong Constitutional Conservatives in all upcoming elections. Fail in this and what was once known as Western Civilization, along with its American pinnacle, will fade to history.
   Fail to do this and there will certainly be catastrophic consequences for you and your loved ones.

What $15/hour Flipping Burgers Gets Ya!

July 22, 2015

What $15/hour Flipping Burgers Gets Ya!

Surprise!!! Take a look at what progressive economics accelerates.

See the following article.

http://www.neowin.net/news/mcdonalds-orders-7000-touchscreen-kiosks-to-replace-cashiers

Note that this article about McDonald’s automation in Europe asserts that McDonald’s does not wish to replace people with machines. Don’t believe it.

The facts are that people in entry-level jobs often don’t show-up for work, they have performance issues, they quit suddenly, and they are all unique, thus stressing management and costing extra money…unlike machines. Also, people keep pushing for raises, more benefits, and time-off for life’s various exigencies, unlike machines.

Automation will come to McDonald’s in America because it is more efficient and cost-effective. Much as it is coming everywhere else in our lives.

But governmentally mandated pay-hikes for menial labor (as it surely has in Europe) will accelerate this natural process. In doing so, it will cause the sudden loss of low-wage wage jobs for those entering the workforce, who use them as a step-ladder to better paying positions in the future. It will also cause the sudden loss of jobs for the quality workforce who are in retirement and need a little extra income to make ends-meet later in life.

Accelerating this process will cause an acute increase in financial stress within our population due to lost jobs; and among businesses that cannot afford to automate and will then fail.

Of course, McDonald’s can stay in business, and our Progressive/Socialist Government can raise taxes on America’s shrinking middle class to pay for the displaced employees forced into its tax-payer-fed welfare system. The end result is a growing voting constituency for our progressive/socialist government.

On balance, governmentally imposed minimum income hikes will not provide a net benefit to our society.

But, they will greatly benefit our bloating progressive/socialist government—on the road to its inevitable failure.

Do ya get it?!

Wake-Up America!

America Is Nuts!

June 23, 2015

America Is Nuts!

I received the following from a dear friend.

This particular item has circulated the internet for some time. It is purported to have originated in Canada, however, its origin and author are unknown.

Wherever this list is from and whoever the author was does not matter to me…because the list is true.

Though I cannot vouch for each of the exact percentages quoted, or the exact dollar figures, there should be no doubt about the general truth and essential stupidity of these true and shameful allegations.

Perhaps there was a time in our history when America could count on the “wisdom of an informed voting public to sustain us”…that assumption should now be in grave and fearful doubt.

America has become a cornucopia of crazy and self-defeating cultural practices that defy logic and diminish ability our ability to survive as a leading Nation.

The following is a document that will confront you with this reality….see for yourself!

Reality may set you free, but first it will make you miserable.

____________________________________________________________________

This is Canada ‘s Top Ten List of America ‘s Stupidity.

Of course we look like idiots – we are!

# 10 Only in America … could politicians talk about the greed of the rich at a $35,000.00 per plate Obama campaign fund-raising event.

# 09 Only in America… could people claim that the government still discriminates against black Americans when they have a black President, a black Attorney General and roughly 20% of the federal workforce is black while only 14% of the population is black, 40+% of all federal entitlements goes to black Americans – 3X the rate that go to whites, 5X the rate that go to Hispanic

# 08 Only in America… could they have had the two people most responsible for our tax code, Timothy Geithner (the head of the Treasury Department) and Charles Rangel (who once ran the Ways and Means Committee), BOTH turn out to be tax cheats who are in favor of higher taxes.

# 07 Only in America… can they have terrorists kill people in the name of Allah and have the media primarily react by fretting that Muslims might be harmed by the backlash.

# 06 Only in America… would they make people who want to legally become American citizens wait for years in their home countries and pay tens of thousands of dollars for the privilege, while they discuss letting anyone who sneaks into the country illegally just ‘magically’ become American citizens. (probably should be number one)

# 05 Only in America … could the people who believe in balancing the budget and sticking by the country’s Constitution be called EXTREMISTS

# 04 Only in America … could you need to present a driver’s license to cash a check or buy alcohol, but not to vote.

# 03 Only in America … could people demand the government investigate whether oil companies are gouging the public because the price of gas went up when the return on equity invested in a major U.S. Oil company (Marathon Oil) is less than half of a company making tennis shoes (Nike).

# 02 Only in America… could you collect more tax dollars from the people than any nation in recorded history, still spend a Trillion dollars more than it has per year – for total spending of $7 Million PER MINUTE, and complain that it doesn’t have nearly enough money.

# 01 Only in America…. could the rich people – who pay 86% of all income taxes – be accused of not paying their “fair share” by people who don’t pay any income taxes at all.

Bonus: ” Only in America do you have to pass a drug test to get a pay check, yet any crack head can get their welfare check no questions asked.”

PLEASE DON’T KEEP THIS – SEND IT OUT TO YOUR ENTIRE LIST.

Please do send this to all of your friends.

Franklin Graham: America’s Persecution Of Christians

March 21, 2015

Franklin Graham: America’s Persecution Of Christians

Make no mistake, Christians are being persecuted by progressive forces in America’s government, judiciary, educational systems and media.

If I have to prove it to you, it would be impossible for me to do so: The evidence is already everywhere around you.

There can be no question that America’s original traditional religious holidays have been increasingly under attack and their representative language, as well as decorative and musical symbols have been increasingly censored, proscribed and vilified.

If this is not apparent to you, you are either in strong denial or you are a propagandist for the progressive forces or our destruction.

I would apologize for the confrontational nature of this blog, but America’s very core is “on the line” and it is no time to mince words.  Without its strong organizing and defining founding religion, America will further fragment, factionalize and decline.

Reverend Franklin Graham is more delicate in his clear presentation of the great American war on Christianity.

I dearly hope you will view his video presentation.

Progressives/Socialist/Communists Creating American An Leviathan

June 5, 2014

Progressives/Socialist/Communists Creating American Leviathan

Rules for Revolution

Snopes reports that both of the lists that I will present below are false. They do this because the attributed authorship of these two sets of rules is unknown. Therefore, the “falseness” Snopes proclaims is only because these lists have been falsely attributed to their supposed authors.

I will submit to you that even though the authors were falsely attributed, and in the final analysis unknown, these lists are absolutely true of the age-old progressive/socialist/ communist strategies used to destroy democracies and democratic republics.

Historically, as is the case with Putin’s Russia invading Ukraine to squelch the advancement of democracy, these strategies have been employed at the barrel of guns. This is ongoing as I write.

However, thanks to our Constitution’s Second Amendment, such an attack is not so likely to work in America. Therefore, as Antonio Gramsci has recommended, progressive/socialist/ communist forces have simply infiltrated every major institution in America, including our government. They are successfully destroying our Nation.

For more information on the Gramsci plan, please see the following.

https://culturalsurvivalskills.wordpress.com/wp-admin/post.php?post=7150&action=edit&message=1

https://culturalsurvivalskills.wordpress.com/2014/01/18/chandlers-shadow-world-4/

As a result of Gramsci-like peaceful strategies progressive/socialist/communist goals are now well-advanced in America. It is very possible that their successes have moved us beyond the point of no return, already transforming America into a Nation tyrannically controlled by its Leviathan Federal Government.

Yes, I used the word “Leviathan” in the last sentence very purposefully. Many may not know the historical importance  of this powerful word.  Please review the following before considering the two lists, clearly identifying the ways in which progressive/socialist/communist forces are constructing a new American Leviathan.

http://www.sparknotes.com/philosophy/leviathan/summary.html

Rule set # 1

1. Corrupt the young, get them away from religion. Get them interested in sex. Make them superficial. Destroy their ruggedness.

2. Get control of all means of publicity.

3. Get people’s minds off their government by focusing their attention on athletics, sexy books and other trivialities.

Rule Set # 2

There are 8 levels of control that must be obtained before a “transforming force” is able to create a Social State.

The first rule is the most important.

1) Healthcare — Control healthcare and you control the people.

2) Poverty — Increase the Poverty level as high as possible, poor people are easier to control and will not fight back if you are providing everything for them to live.

3) Debt — Increase the debt to an unsustainable level. This way taxes can be increased, and that will produce more poverty.

4) Gun Control — Remove the ability to defend themselves from the Government. With this accomplished it is possible to create a police state.

5) Welfare — Take control of every aspect of the largest segment of the population as possible lives (Food, Housing, and Income). Federal Control of the population is essential.

6) Education — Take control of what people read and listen to — take control of what children learn in school.

7) Religion — Remove the belief in the God from the Government and schools.

8) Class Warfare — Divide the people into the wealthy and the poor this will cause more discontent and it will be easier to take (Tax) the wealthy with the support of the poor. Do the same with faith and ethnicity. All of this will increase the probability of public disorder and will provide a logical defense for a police state.
