When you’re floating down the river with a flotilla of rafts, yucking it up and having a great time, your reference point becomes the other rafts around you. But if you’re on the bank watching them go by, it’s a different reference point.
When you send your child to school you’re on the raft. When you keep them home you’re on the bank. This analogy shows a great contrast between the mindsets of those who chose to keep the state out of their children’s minds and those who are simply floating down wherever the river might be taking them.
Many figured this out long ago. Today we look at an article that I think is good, but misleading:
The title is misleading because it’s projecting their experience on everyone else. It may be true that the so-called “transgender bathroom” debate was the straw that broke the camel’s back for the writer of this article, but it’s not true for millions of others. For them, the camel is a greasy spot on the road after having been run over by a battalion of Gaystapo tanks. But nevertheless, a slap in the face is sometimes a good thing. From the article:
You may not have realized it yet, but the Obama administration just destroyed the traditional American public school. Without an act of Congress, without a ruling from the Supreme Court, and without even going through the motions of the regulatory rule-making process, the administration issued a letter drafting every single public educational institution in the country to implement the extreme edge of the sexual revolution. The Department of Justice and the Department of Education have declared that they now “interpret” federal law to not only support the fantastical notion that boys can become girls but also to impose new legal requirements that impact every aspect of school life. The administration’s letter sweeps far beyond bathrooms — imposing a new speech code on school employees and even students, opening girls’ showers to boys, requiring schools to allow boys to sleep in girls’ rooms on overnight field trips, requiring boys to room with girls even in single-sex dorms, and putting boys on girls’ sports teams.
I think there’s ways around this:
The majority of families are left with no meaningful choice. Only small minorities have either the time and ability to homeschool or the resources to send their children to private schools. So during the school year, Americans hand their children over to educators who often spend more waking hours with their kids than parents do.
We accept too many premises. Just sit down and meditate on the reality of what is happening. The president of America want’s to redefine a bunch of words and then enforce old laws with new meanings to the words that make up those laws. That might not seem so bad, but they are basic words; words like male, female and marriage. It’s as if he wants to rid our culture of all concepts of family while he sits there in his husband/wife/children family using private schools. Are we so quick to surrender our children to this? There’s no other way but this for the “majority”? I’m sorry, but I’m not buying that. It’s too easy to make that excuse. It’s too easy to base our priorities on the lies we tell ourselves. We sacrifice our children… and for what? Sheetrock? A “safer neighborhood? And then we send our children for an entire day to the most hostile place in our “safe” neighborhood? Nope. You can believe that if you want. Or you can do the sensible thing, and get the hell out tomorrow.
Please read the rest. It’s sobering. But it’s not compulsory. Not yet. Please consider exercising one of your greatest freedoms while you still can.
