Statist oriented government agents everywhere are not content with simply ruling over their captive subjects within the boundaries of the Constitution and laws of the land. No – they’re too often pathologically obsessed with controlling every detail in our lives, whether it pertains to marriage, healthcare, etc. and incredibly even when it comes to how we fashion our hair.
Earlier this year, for example, in my post: Hair Raising Public School Statists in Texas, I observed that many American public school statists think they have a perfect right to force human beings to comply with compulsory education requirements in violation of their constitutional rights, and at the same time dictate absolute conformance in all manner of personal behavior, dress, appearance and thought right down to the way children choose to express themselves with their own hair.
American kids are treated just like inmates in a state penitentiary; penalized for the slightest infractions. It is not enough that they are prisoners of the state; they’re expected to conform like sheep. A straight-A-student was punished by suspension simply for choosing a color for her hair that her statist school administrators didn’t like.
This week an 11-year-old Grand Junction Colorado third-grader was suspended for shaving her head in “violation” of the school’s unconstitutional dress code. The statists there think they have the right to punish little kids who choose to wear no hair at all or to fashion their hair in a manner at odds with an arbitrary dress code.
Not that it should matter, but this little girl chose to shave her head as a kind act of solidarity with one of her friends who lost her hair because of cancer and the necessity for chemotherapy. For this she was told that she couldn’t return to classes until her grew hair back.
Shaved heads are against the school’s dress code “which was created to promote safety, uniformity, and a non-distracting environment for the school’s students,” huffed the school board president, Catherine M. Norton in defense of her statist policies. The dress code also specifies that “radical changes in hair color during the school year are unacceptable.”
“Uniformity” – that says it all, doesn’t it? Uniformity and conformity -- that’s what it’s all about in American public schools nowadays. The children are treated like flocks of sheep.
But after this sad story spread over the internet, going viral, Ms Norton and her statist school board eventually caved in under the tremendous pressure of national outrage over what they did to this innocent little girl who wanted only to make her sick friend feel better. The board voted to let her come back to school.
How about that? They voted on the question of whether an American citizen may exercise her constitutional rights. Statists actually believe they have the right to do that. So they do it all the time with stuff like marriage, healthcare, and dress codes – whatever they feel like and whenever they feel like it.
Outside of America, the so-called land of the free and home of the brave, where else in the world is this kind of blatant in your face statism happening?
Yes, that’s right – North Korea.
"Male university students in North Korea are now required to get the same haircut as their leader Kim Jong-un,” according to recent reports. Haircuts in that bad place have been state-approved or not for a long time now. But before now at least the North Korean sheep were allowed by their dear leader to choose from 18 hair styles for women and 10 for men.
You see, North Korea's state TV some time ago launched a campaign against long hair, called "Let us trim our hair in accordance with the Socialist lifestyle."
Now we know for sure that our American government statists aren’t too far behind the North Koreans when it comes to the matter of: hair.
