Great Defection From the West
I don’t know
why it was so obvious to me. School was prison for kids. That’s
the way I saw it. But as I looked at my fellow school inmates
around me they didn’t seem to notice.
By the time
I reached high school I had resigned myself to just getting a passing
grade to make my parents happy and move on. My goal: 50%.
I didn’t want 51%… if I got that, I was trying too hard.
I’d rarely show up. And when I did I’d sit in the back
row listening to the horse race reports from the warmup sessions
at the track where I would go each evening and, in nearly 100 visits,
perhaps recorded a loss at the end of each evening once or twice.
As for school,
I’d really only go for the tests. I’d go two hours early and
speed read the textbook and make sure I knew just enough to pass.
I was quite good at it, to the point where on my final exam
of high school I had planned it perfectly so passing the course
would give me just enough to graduate and I even knew the exact
score I needed on the test to pass: 62%.
It was social
studies, which I detested for having to memorize obvious propaganda,
but it was easy enough to pass the exam. I’d short-term memorize
as much as I could and the dates and places that I couldn’t remember
I’d write on my forearm, or my leg, or on any number of cheat sheets
I had. It was a two hour exam and there were multiple choice
questions worth 70% and essays worth 30%. I went through the
multiple choice in about 30 minutes and knew I had enough to get
62% so I didn’t even bother with the essay section. I got
up to leave and was informed that there was a “minimum time requirement
of 1 hour”.
time requirement,” I complained! ”But, I’m done!”
“Go sit until
the hour is up,” they admonished. Servitude to unworthy authoritarian
figures is the real goal of schooling in the west. Angry,
and bored for the next 30 minutes, I went on to write some of the
more disturbing and outright erroneous essay answer questions probably
ever recorded in social studies history.
the hour was up and I could escape. And I did pass that course
and finally was allowed out of child prison.
WAS THEN, THIS IS NOW
Even back in
the 1980s school was atrocious. But when I look at what is
going on today I can only come to one conclusion: sending your child
to public school in the US is child abuse.
Think I’m exagerrating?
Hear me out.
start with all the injections your child will receive if you force
them to go for their government training. The fascist US Government
which is one in the same with the pharmaceutical industry continues
to want to inject more and more heinous chemicals into your children
while they have them under their “care”.
In one instance,
a 14-year-old girl was forced to take vaccinations for hepatitis
A, seasonal influenza, meningitis, and HPV (Gardasil) in a Detroit
area school despite her parents previously-stated opposition to
their daughter receiving medical treatments from the school (see
This is just
standard operating procedure at most school’s nowadays. ”Parents
give up their rights when they drop the children off at public school,”
said Melinda Harmon, a US Federal Judge, recently.
vaccines is “like
a sudden onslaught to the body’s immune system“, according
to this Australian Government study. And, when given to youngsters
whose immune system hasn’t yet fully formed, it can be catastrophic
for health… which is probably the point. Remember, people
like Bill Gates, Ted Turner, Al Gore and more are trying to do as
much as possible to reduce the global population. Bill
Gates has even stated publicly that vaccines are one of the best
way to do this.
Now, in a new
amendment to California’s Health and Safety Code as it relates to
vaccinations will take effect this fall for the 2012-2013 school
year, and will require all incoming seventh graders, as well as
eighth and twelfth graders for the first year, to get a Tdap booster
vaccination for pertussis (whooping cough) before being admitted
to school. Mandatory.
“A number of
clinical laboratory studies demonstrate that vaccines may cause
chronic damage to the G.I. tract, immune system, brain, and other
organs,” says Bernard Rimland, Ph.D., an American research psychologist,
writer, lecturer and advocate for autistic children.
And, once your
child has had their immune system attacked by countless unnecessary
and dangerous vaccines (autism
has increased 1000% since 1990 due to vaccines) then the government
will be looking to give them all manner of other chemicals.

to complete morons trying to brainwash them with garbage? They’ll

When they aren’t
being dumbed down by drugs or having their immune system destroyed
by vaccines they have to actually deal with their Lord of the Flies

it is good… it will toughen them up, they say. We’re not
so sure sending your five, ten or fifteen year old into something
that is not that different than a high security prison to avoid
getting shivved in the bathroom is the best way to teach them about
life. You could just rent Oz
for them and save them some terrible emotional scars.
and correspondent, David
Giessel, sent us these photos of a maximum security prison in
security child prison. That’s an elementary school in Oakland.
Your kids will have such warm memories of their time interned,
And, if you
try to get out, microchips implanted in your child’s school uniform
will notify the authorities, if this
technique used in Brazil catches on… and it is sure to.
And that is
when the state isn’t trying to trap your kids into victimless crimes
to bust them. A 22
year old cop in Exiter California wasted eight months of stolen
taxpayer money trying to trap little kids into buying something,
anything which would take away the pain of 12 years of being imprisoned
in their formative years. Nearly a year later he had ruined
the lives of twelve high school prisoners and all but ensured their
graduation to adult prison… or as they call it, prison.
The cop was
almost giddy as he stated, “A lot of jaws dropped when they saw
me. They knew me as that kid at school that they hung around
with, and then the next thing they’re in handcuffs and I’m in a
And when they
aren’t being beaten up or entrapped into prison sentences by the
state, they are being prepared for their future FEMA camp internment.
End Of The American Dream“:
over the United States, school children are being taken out of their
classrooms, put on buses and sent to “alternate locations” during
terror drills. These exercises are often called “evacuation drills”
or “relocation drills” and they are more than a little disturbing.
Sometimes parents are notified in advance where the kids are being
taken and sometimes they are only told that the children are being
taken to an “undisclosed location”. In the years since 9/11 and
the Columbine school shootings, there has been a concerted effort
to make school emergency drills much more “realistic” and much more
intense. Unfortunately, the fact that many of these drills are deeply
traumatizing many children does not seem to bother too many people.
Do we really need to have “active shooter” drills where men point
guns at our kids and fire blanks at them? Do we really need to have
“relocation drills” where kids are rapidly herded on to buses and
told that they must surrender their cell phones because they will
not be allowed to call anyone? Our schools more closely resemble
prison camps every single day, and it is our children that are suffering
because of it.
like at an elementary school in Baltimore recently, three nine-year-old
girls and an eight-year-old boy were arrested for fighting and marched
out of their elementary school in handcuffs. In New Haven,
Connecticut a 10-year-old boy was actually arrested by police for
giving another student “a wedgie” on a school bus. Or, in
San Mateo, California a few months ago a 7-year-old special education
student was blasted in the face with pepper spray because he would
not quit climbing on the furniture. Police were then able
to subdue the boy and he was “committed for a psychiatric evaluation”.
And, when they
aren’t being arrested or handcuffed, the school will be working
to ensure your child adheres to the will of the collective and does
not try to be an individual and use their own mind independently
as this teacher’s letter reinforces:
You can state
that you have been the victim of theft and are forced to pay for
these schools. And, yes, you are. But nothing can justify
actually sending your children off everyday to this type of environment.
If you do, you are a child abuser. Especially when homeschooling
have been made so eminently possible thanks to the internet.
You can then
state that thanks to the socialist/fascist government and the central
banks you’ve been so impoverished that you and your wife must work
18-hour days just to survive… and that is why you send your kids
to prison camp. But, even that is not justification enough
to do this to your own children. If this is the case and you
cannot find any other way then leave where you live and search for
a place with better opportunities.
I know. It was hard for your ancestors to get on that
boat and survive scurvy and come to a foreign land to make a living
too. But they did it.

we are working on all manner of ways to help people in that situation.

thing we are working on is a liberty-minded enclave, likely in Mexico
to start (and then other locations through Asia, Africa and Central/South
America afterwards) which will be built in co-housing
style. Our top priority will be self-sufficiency and a
true community environment where the occupants live, work and co-operate
with each other to build a prosperous community. And the other
main factor is price. We want to make it as cheap as possible
to attract young, freedom-minded families. We are talking
under $50,000 for a complete family unit and total daily living
costs of under $5, using economies of scale to efficiently
provide organic food and homeschooling/unschooling opportunities
for all. Not anarcho-communism… that is seriously stupid.
But a community of anarchists who believe in property rights
and the non-aggression principle.
This is the
type of thing we are working on here at TDV. Stay tuned for
more. In the meantime, don’t be a fool, get your child out
