[COMMENT: The UN is run by thugs who want control, not peace, not justice. Behind the UN is the Globalist thuggery, led by international bankers, who will sell out the lot of us to gain their ends.
Our choice is: "Jesus is Lord", or, "Civil government is lord." The latter is a choice for slavery. No one but God can sustain our freedom, or bring peace. See Constitution Library.
Government run education is the primary lever of control of
the people, just as government control of religion used to be.
Comprehensive ducation is inherently and always religious. You cannot
separate the two. The very argument below of the German government spells
out the truth of the matter. See comments below in the text. E. Fox]
WND Commentary U.N. threatening to
trump U.S. Constitution
>Posted: December 26, 2006
>By Olivia St. John
>As the political cauldron heats up for the coming 2008 presidential
>election, few Americans seem to realize that their personal freedoms
>secured under the Constitution are perilously close to being trumped
>by the United Nations.
>Preposterous, you say? Not if a Democrat Senate and Democrat
>president ratify U.N. treaties, such as the U.N. Convention on the
>Rights of the Child, aimed at dangerously weakening national sovereignty.
[COMMENT: The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child is not for the child, it is an attack on parents who want to educate their own children. These people believe the state owns the child, not the parent. E. Fox]
>A case in point is the European
Convention on Human Rights, an
>offshoot of the U.N. Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which is
>currently being used by the German government to ban homeschooling
>and to indoctrinate public and private school students into fully
>embracing a socialist state. Recently, almost 40 German families
>have endured imprisonment, heavy fines, state seizure of children,
>and in some cases the serious hardship of seeking asylum in
>neighboring countries, all because they have chosen to homeschool
>their children due to concerns over hedonistic exposure to sexually
>explicit materials in the German public school system. Incredibly,
>Sven-Georg Adenauer, a Christian-Democrat governor joined at the hip
>with the Socialist party, demanded the prison sentences.
>According to LifeSiteNews.com, the European Court utilized Article 2
>of the European Convention on Human Rights and concluded that
>"Parents may not refuse the right to education of a child on the
>basis of their convictions" adding that the right to education "by
>its very nature calls for regulation by the State."
[COMMENT: This is double-speak. The parents are not refusing the right for a child to get educated, they are affirming it in the only way it can happen, with parental control. For the state to assert that "education" means government education is absurd on the face of it, and an attempt to define the terms of the debate without input from any other side. That is tyranny. E. Fox]
>Furthermore, "the Court agreed
with the finding of Germany's Federal
>Constitutional Court which stressed 'the general interest of society
>to avoid the emergence of parallel societies based on separate
>philosophical convictions and the importance of integrating
>minorities into society.'"
[COMMENT: The general interests of society to avoid the emergence of parallel societies is (1) an outright denial of what they so absurdly trumpet -- diversity; and (2) an exposure of what they really want, not diversity at all, but control. What they do not want is an honest public discussion of basic issues. The want to educate the children to grow up to elect the same folks back into office.
Several decades ago, Hitler remarked that it no longer mattered whether parents objected to his program, that he had the minds of their children under his control through schools. Exactly. Every tyrant goes immediately control of the thinking processes. Much easier to control that way than with force.
The argument against "parallel societies" was precisely the argument used centuries ago to enforce one religion. (See 'religio'.) Education is inherently religious. Both education and religion teach a worldview, a moral standard, and a political format. A healthy Christian community is the thing a tyrant fears most of all. The American government schools were started (largley) by Horace Mann, who went to Prussia for his inspiration, the most militaristic nation in the world in the 1830's, and the precursor to the Nazis of the 20th century. American governent education never was about education, it was, right from the start, about control. The thought of setting people free with the truth (see John 8:31 ff.) never crossed the minds of the supporters of "public education" (which is neither public nor education).
A freemarket education system is absolutely necessary for sustaining a freemarket of ideas. And a freemarket of ideas is required for sustaining a free people. The unity of a people will then come, not out of government coercion (brainwashing), but out of the free search for truth among the citizens.
Teaching hedonism is part of the control mechanism. A hedonistic people is far more easy to control than an intelligently educated people. None of this is accidental, it is part of a deliberate plan, largely from the direction of socialists and globalists. E. Fox]
