Lt. Col. Lawrence Sellin, no stranger to the struggle for freedom (and a Ph.D to boot) describing the state of affairs following the rebellious actions of the venomous snake of the Senate in ram-rodding the progressive-Marxist agenda once again, down the throats of a non-compliant We The People. The will of the people be damned. Perilous times ahead ..
The erosion of the Constitution and the theft of our Constitutional rights have been occurring incrementally and quietly over a long period of time. With the election of Barack Obama in 2008, those efforts have accelerated.
In contrast to what Thomas Paine wrote in The Rights of Man (1791), the Obama “utopian” model sees individual rights as privileges, not endowed by God, but granted via political charter, and, thereby, legally revocable to ensure the “good order” of society. It is a collectivist philosophy that directly conflicts with the principles outlined in the Constitution, where government is a construct of, and accountable to, its citizens. As Paine noted:
“The fact, therefore, must be that the individuals, themselves, each, in his own personal and sovereign right, entered into a contract with each other to produce a government: and this is the only mode in which governments have a right to arise, and the only principle on which they have a right to exist.”
One thought on “A House Divided Cannot Stand : Perilous Times Ahead”
You could not be more on the money. We are seeing more and more ‘rights’ removed by those who have no ~right~ to do so, although since they enjoy playing God, and want to be gods, they just can’t seem to stop themselves. Did I mention their Father is Satan? Moving on, they are replacing the ~rights~ they have no right to tamper with in the first place, only power through stolen money, with ‘privileges’ and ‘tokens’ and ‘tattle-tale tokens’. For instance, I know of a particular middle school in Maine, and I suspect many other schools, where the school has made up ‘tokens’ and if a student walks properly down the hallway or answers a question properly (effectively, how the government wants them to) they may use their tokens to purchase items in the school cafeteria or the school store or on student parking, etc. So, in effect, this token is money or can be used as money in certain places. Now. The $64,000,000 question: WHO SETS THE CRITERIA ON WHAT THE RIGHT ANSWER IS?
Take this same scenario to the street level, which it has been, and the person doing the, erm, ‘good’ deed, is registered in a computer at the state capitol, and/or the police department there. I presume, since you are writing about this you see the inherent danger associated with what is going on. This is Operant Conditioning and was introduced by BF Skinner who called his computer “his box”. Those in charge are purposely bypassing humanity with this modus operandi, and BF Skinner himself said, people are going to become very upset in the future about losing their freedoms and with issues in the environment and the way to be handling them is not through the police force but through operant conditioning, and positive reinforcement through rewards and privileges. See my paraphrased statements expounded upon below:
AN ARTICLE ENTITLED “PEOPLE CONTROL BLUEPRINT” BY CAROL DENTON WAS PUBLISHED
in the May, 1972 issue (Vol. 3, No. 12) of The National Educator (Fullerton, CA). Recommendations made in the top secret paper discussed in this article echo those mentioned in the April 6, 1971 Michigan Governor’s Advisory Council on Population paper. Excerpts follow:
A “Top Secret” paper from the Center for the Study of Democratic Institutions, now in the hands of The National Educator, reveals a plan for total control of the people of the United States through behavioral modification techniques of B.F. Skinner, the controversial behaviorist author of Beyond Freedom and Dignity….
According to the “Dialogue Discussion Paper,” marked “Top Secret” across the bottom of the cover page, a conference was held at the Center on January 17 through 19, 1972, at which time a discussion on “The Social and Philosophical Implications of Behavior Modification” was held. The paper in question is the one prepared [by] four individuals for presentation at that conference entitled “Controlled Environment for Social Change.” The authors are Vitali Rozynko, Kenneth Swift, Josephine Swift and Larney J. Boggs….
The second page of the paper carries the inscription, “To B.F. Skinner and James G. Holland.”… Page 3 of the paper states that the “Top Secret” document was prepared on December 31, 1971….
The authors of this tome are senior staff members of the Operant Behavior Modification Project located at Mendocino State Hospital in California and the project is partially supported by a grant from the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse….
On page 5 of this blueprint for totalitarianism, the authors state that “we are presently concerned with controlling upheavals and anarchic behavior associated with social change and discontent.”… The authors go on to say that they believe an “Orwellian world” is more likely under presently developing society than under the kind of rigorous controls of a society envisioned by Skinner….
On page 6, the authors deplore the growing demands for “law and order,” stating that the population is now more apt to support governmental repression than previously, in response to “their own fears.”…
They add that “with the rising population, depletion of natural resources, and the increase of pollution, repressive measures may have to be used to guarantee survival of our species. These measures may take the form of forced sterilization, greatly restricted uses of energy and limits on population movement and living location.”…
Skinner, on the other hand, they allege—“advocates more sophisticated controls over the population, since punishment (by the government) for the most part works only temporarily and only while the punishing agent is present.”…
On the other hand, the authors allege, operant conditioning (sensitivity training) and other behavioral techniques can be used to control the population through “positive reinforcement.”
