Government “is like a nation’s family” because it sets rules and takes care of needs such as health care and education.
That’s what education authorities in the State of Illinois are teaching little fourth-grade elementary school children nowadays complete with a worksheet for social studies homework depicting Uncle Sam cradling a baby American that represents the citizens.
“What is Government?” the worksheet is titled. “Government is like a nation’s family. Families take care of children and make sure they are safe, healthy and educated, and free to enjoy life. Families encourage children to be independent hardworking and responsible,” it explains. “Families make and enforce rules and give appropriate punishments when rules are broken. Government does these things for its citizens, too.”
That’s the purpose of government. Uncle Sam is part of our family. He takes care of us. Even after we become adults he continues to take care of us and make sure that we are safe. He makes the rules for us to live by. He decides our values, our culture, and how we should live. He knows what is best for us. Just like mom and dad, he loves us. He selflessly sacrifices for us. So we should love and obey him.
You see, this is exactly what the parasite political class in America wants its subjects to think about them. “We’re the government; we’re here to help you; we’re your family.” These people view their subjects as children who must be told what to think and how to act.
They use the public schools to accomplish their goal. Their goal is to use propaganda to teach successive generations of citizens how to compliantly feed them and otherwise do their bidding. Each new generation is considered a “resource.” If I’ve heard that term once I’ve heard it a thousand times from government parasites referring to the people they govern. To them we are nothing more than a resource.
This “is not an attempt to include and/or promote a political message,” insists Teri Madl, the superintendent for East Prairie School District 73 in Illinois. “… it is meant to offer a simple analogy that helps children understand that part of a government’s role is to set rules, enforce those rules, and provide safety, security and freedom for its citizens.”
But if that’s the case, it’s surely a wickedly false and calculating analogy deliberately crafted to indoctrinate, brainwash and deceive gullible young children into believing that a wholly abstract construction – government – loves them like family and will take care of them just like family.
It doesn’t explain the part about government parasites using them like slaves, extorting their money, and curtailing their liberty. It’s a statist political message; political socialist propaganda, pure and simple.
This is clearly not the kind of stinking garbage the founding fathers anticipated, after fighting a bitter Revolutionary War against the British monarchy, would be taught to little school children about the purpose of government. They saw government as a necessary evil which must be strictly limited in order to preserve the liberty of the people.
They certainly did not view the government as family.
That’s because they considered a citizen’s family and family matters as private and personal, which is to say: none of the goddamned government’s business. The founders lived at a time much different from today when the government was not involved in every single aspect of people’s lives.
Now the parasite political class which controls the government believes that there is no longer any such value as privacy. Your private personal and family business is the government’s business as far as they are concerned. They want to determine your values, your culture, what and how you think.
Incredibly, some of these government parasites even want to teach you and your children what to think about your own private sex life. I’m not making this up. Some public school authorities in Wisconsin today are actually teaching the kids what to think and do about masturbation.
Why not? Nothing is private from Uncle Sam any longer.
Government: It’s your family.
