Understanding Totalitarianism

George JonasHere’s the link to an article I saved from the National Post, September 12, 2012, written by the late, and very excellent, George Jonas. It perfectly encapsulates the view that any non-totalitarian would have; that is, that parents have a “prior right” to decide on all aspects of their children’s education. The “prior right” quote comes directly from the UN Declaration of Human Rights.

Note that Jonas was not a Christian, but a Jewish agnostic who had survived the Nazi Holocaust. Several of his family did not.

Joeseph GoerbbelsCompare his perspective on parental rights with that of Alberta’s increasingly totalitarian bureaucracy, the Alberta Department of Education, and Education Minister Eggen, who by his actions and utterances apparently agrees with Joseph Goebbels, Hitler’s propaganda Minister who said: “The youth belong to us!” Wherever you live, it is increasingly likely that your Department of Education believes the same.

I suspect that George Jonas’ brush with the Nazis helped inform his opinion. He clearly understood that we ignore history at our peril.

Please take the time to read the article. It’s more urgent today than it was in 2012. And please share with your email list, and on Facebook and Twitter! Social media is the culture building tool of the 21st century. Let’s use it!

    Hey, Dave, good observations here! Personally, I’ve always suspected Mr. Eggen is actually pimping Alberta schoolkids out to his re-election financial base. John Carpay actually records a verified incident of an Alberta school trying to force a transgender identity on a learning-challenged student behind her parents’ backs – and nearly precipitating a suicide thereby. All this to suck up to the progressively-hip Mr. Eggen. Heads need to roll – starting at the top!

    I agree entirely. But they won’t roll until the elelction. and then the bureaucracy needs to be hit hard. i hope Jason has the cojones for it.
