History Lesson

"Okay class.  Settle down...The lesson for today is: 'How to overthrow the established order.'"


"It doesn't have to be.  It can be a lot of fun, actually.  Now listen up.  The first thing you need to be aware of is that you need to have a lot of patience."

"How do you spell that 'pay-shuns,' Teach?"

"'P - a -  ' - oh never mind.  It's not important.  You do understand that, don't you?'

"Oh.  Right.  'One way is just as good as another.'"

"Right.  You've got it.  So, it's important that there is patience during 'the long march through the institutions' and all that.  Remember that from the Overview session for the class?"

"Oh, right.  That head stuff."

"'Head stuff' indeed.  However; moving right along.  

"Similar to not needing to know how to spell 'correctly' is not really needing to know how to read, indiscriminately.  Anybody know what that's called?"

"Reading comprehension?"

"That's right.  Good.  We want the youth to get reading comprehension.  To understand what they're reading.  Not just reading for the sake of reading."

"Uh huh..."

"We'll build their vocabulary for them."


"And that way, make sure that they don't come across words that may give them any funny ideas."

"Like what, Teach?"

"Like, oh, say: 'liberty'.  Which is on the proscribed list anyway, as some of you will know.  Instead of the proper term in its place; of…of……Come on.  Some of you surely - "


"Right.  Good.  You're a clever one, aren't you…Now settle down, you lot.  You can have at him after class… 

"So anyway.  Where was I.  I mean, where were we…" 

"You were - "

"I know, I know.  Just kidding.  Lighten things up a bit.  One of the lessons for us teachers.  

"I was talking about the need not - let me rephrase that.  I was talking about the individual's need not to know how to read for - no.  Let me get this right.  I mean, more correctly.  I mean, more clearly.  Let me think a bit….who said, 'It's about time'?  I heard that…At least, some of you were thinking that…

"Got it.  The individual does not need to know how to read for her- or himself.  We'll have all you need to know available on TV, or on our chokepoints via the Internet.  Books will start disappearing, as being no longer needed.  Got that?"

"T…V.  Got it."

"'And then they all lived happily ever after.'"

"Who said that?"

"I did.  Sir."

"You've been reading ahead in the syllabus, Mr. Smarty Pants, haven't you."

"Right.  That's how I know how all of this will end up."

"And that is…"

"Bad.  B - a - d.  Bad." 

And don't let anybody tell you differently.


P.S. And after penning and posting this little 'thought for the day' late last night, I found it interesting that I noticed in my day's mail - belatedly gotten to - a rather timely corroboration of The Big O's 'equality' pandering to his feminist base, via a ruling from the Supreme Court - which, somewhat surprisingly, given his appointments to that august body, went against his executive-branch juggernaut.  It was a mailing from a Christian organization announcing boldly on its envelope: 'Finally the Supreme Court Stands Up To Obama's Attack on Religion!' with the sub-announcement being a quote from the SCOTUS's decision on the case in question:
     "We cannot accept the remarkable view that the Religion Clauses [of the Constitution; that document under such assault these days particularly, but not exclusively, from the Left] have nothing to say about a religious organization's freedom to select its own ministers…It is impermissible for the government to contradict a church's determination of who can act as its ministers."
     A worthy conclusion.  But a) the assault on the Constitution continues; and b) this is a perfect example of how far this erstwhile emperor (whose Department of Justice continues to fight for leftist causes like this one) wants to go, in being a law unto himself; in this instance, giving in particular his feminist base a morsel of 'equality' determination, for their loyalty to the cause of his attempted takeover of the American Republic.
     Which is exemplified as well in the arena of the 'gay power' war against the Christian religion, and the 'traditional family unit' forces, having been forced to organize a counterattack against the same forces of 'change'.  But that's beginning to get into another blog...
