Being an individual is often more powerful than joining a crowd
True conservatism, seeks to conserve the good, the true, and the beautiful as an inheritance to the succeeding generations. Conservatism has allowed the West the prosper in the excellence of morality, law, liberty, art, literature, science, philosophy, theology, and politics.
A recent magazine article suggests we should forgive ourselves for what was said while we were “in the dark” about the Chinese Origin Viral Infectious Disease. Okay, go ahead. But there was no reason for anyone to be in the dark about the bug.
News reports told us crazy things. The World Health Organization and Centers for Disease Control warned us government was on the wrong track. The first thing that they said was it had a 90% mortality. Then Fauci said we didn’t need masks, and there was no need to get all shook up.
The terms Build Back Better and The Great Reset, sound wonderful. But to question the inference, they also say, “everything you know, everything your parents taught you, that you found good, and you enjoyed in this society, is broken.”
By extension, that means you too. Does that sound logical to you? If we need a reset, or need to build back – doesn’t that say either “build from a different foundation” or “clear the screen and start over?” If you are part of the country, you need to forget all you know and start over, build back, reset, get with the program.
Both Democratic candidates for the President and Vice President her spouting claims of hypocrisy while simultaneously playing hide-the-weenie with even those left-leaning media folk always for them. Mainstream media cannot get a straight answer out of them any more than Trump could in the debate.
The choice of candidates that will shoot straight with America began to weed themselves out. Trump is so many claims about him that even if he was caught with the secretary in a DNA-laden blue dress, you could not separate that out from the many claims that are transparently false. Meanwhile, Harris is hiding a lot of skeletons in her closet and Biden seems to be hiding in a closet taking a nap.
One of the efforts to change modern schools that have shown some success are the charter schools. Some of them have been extraordinarily successful while others have closed for various and not consistent reasons.
Harvard Education magazine published an article in 2017 that describes the origin of charter schools as a locally controlled, small system that matches community needs to the education children received.
The hobgoblin in this story is the National Education Agency. Since the 1940’s the NEA has been the richest union in the country and has followed Wundtian policies to place political activists in something like 4000 politically active campaigns or in local congressional districts around the United States.
Like Wundt, they use their own sources to create “experts” who will legitimize their greatness and ability by holding workshops that give continuing education credit and even graduate school credits to those that attend.
As the probable cause report on Adult Arrested Adolescent gets closer to its end, schools must be the last and most sensitive area of concern.
It is because nice people and dupes have allowed the National Education Agency, which is not national, not education, and not as the word seems to imply, part of our government — to function as if it were.
We need our police because we know nothing about safety in America is going to change as a result of the recent social unrest. We are not foolish enough to think all this horror in American cities will have a positive outcome.
We have seen riots before, they do not really work well. Mr. Obama says these riots are not like those of the ’60s and ’70s. I was there in uniform then, and while what the protests are different, the lives that are being disadvantaged if not destroyed are exactly the same.
In the last post, the discussion was about Hoffer and Adult Arrested Adolescence. If we are going to examine the theory of the Tri-A maybe describing adolescence would be good.
To review, the thesis is that certain adults keep adolescent characteristics well into adulthood, partially out of habit but also because as their brains develop, they get “stuck” in adolescence. My first question was, “If they fail to break out of an adolescent thought structure do their brains fully develop?” Observation seems to show they do not.
A modern police agency must have certain things, a court to which arrested persons are referred to guarantee rights, like Miranda, bond, legal representation, and judgment. Usually, there is some sort of jail or holding cell, and then the offender is transferred to a county-level system.
A police department cannot operate without a supportive court system and the will of the city/county elected officials to monitor them. They are, by one definition, the last resort for a community. When a family or some citizens cannot control themselves, the city uses the police. Most importantly, the police are there because the city’s streets, roads, and other delights cannot keep 100% of the people happy.
