ANOTHER NUDGE STORY

April 11, 2016

I thought I’d escaped the idiocy of California when I made the move out of state. Yet, this is happening in my recently adopted home town in a very conservative community of a very red state.

This move by progressives in the field of “education” encourages unlawful activity while depriving U.S. citizens of the opportunity to attend the college of their choice. *Note – Prescott College has a student body of only 400 undergraduates (total enrollment is around 1,200). Annual applications exceed that number by about twenty-five to thirty percent. One scholarship per year to someone who is in the country illegally deprives and displaces one academically qualified citizen and local taxpayer.

The story linked above does indicate that students may opt out of the levy when paying their tuition. In order to do so, they must carefully read the detailed information in the tuition guide and mark the appropriate sections to take advantage of the option. Otherwise, they are contributing their, or their parents’, money to aiding and abetting known law breakers.

Someone please tell me how academia is not projecting progressive influences on our kids instead of imparting the knowledge that will help them obtain lucrative careers to sustain self sufficient, productive and long happy lives.

This is nothing more than another social engineering control measure or “nudge” that causes people to subliminally participate in actions or causes they might consciously reject. And, this is just one of many such encounters we face in our daily lives. Most people tend to accept the subtleties taking place around them and are swept into actions they would otherwise renounce.

Please pay close attention to the influences of your daily life; observe and analyze before making a decision or taking an action . Your vote this year will determine the future of your immediate family, your children and grandchildren and generations beyond.

ALL INCLUSIVE, ALL ACCEPTING

December 8, 2015

The institutions that used to help our youth learn to live in society are now teaching them to be victims of that society. Anything can incite victim hood. What was normal conversation just a few years ago, an exchange of ideas, is now considered by some to be so revolting that they must run away from the initiator. Trigger words that are known only to a few can be so insulting that police must intervene. Just saying “people of color” immediately makes a bigot out of those uttering the phrase and a casualty of the aural recipient.

“You look nice today” causes the over analytic societal specimens to feel they might not have looked their best yesterday. If said by a man to a woman or vice versa, it could be interpreted as a sexual advance. When that is the case, the one offering the compliment might be placed on a list of sexual predators and denied future employment.

Liberals want so much to be victims that they create situations for which they can whine. Creating “safe places” in colleges where they can banter among themselves without having to hear reasoned dissenting opinion or opposing facts are just some ways to avoid the reality of life. Invading the safe space with words or gestures grants them the right to be offended. And offending one of the easily upset might be as simple as wearing a certain color.

Red and green are out for some whinies at certain colleges and universities. Inclusivity mandates that students not wear colors previously identified with Christmas because some (1) person may feel left out. Perhaps we’d better change the tail lights on our cars for the rest of the year to keep some overprotected wuss from seeing the antagonizing hue.

If you’re going to present a color, you must show a rainbow as well. That’s the only way to be color comprehensive and diverse. Still, you may risk affronting a mauve or chartreuse lover. Don’t worry though, they’ll let you know before retreating to a safe place.

You might be hauled off in cuffs or at least detained for several hours simply for uttering Merry Christmas or Happy Hanukkah if there is an atheist, Buddhist or Muslim in the immediate area. The greetings do not include them.

Apparently, festively decorated trees can cause today’s youth to go into convulsions at this time of year as well. Garland, mangers, wreathes and sleigh bells or the mention of God will send some of the milksops to the psychiatrist office for multiple hour-long sessions and a prescription for heavy duty medication to make them feel all wonderful again.

Happy Hanukkah to my Jewish friends and Merry Christmas to my Christian friends. All others please accept my open greeting for wellness, longevity and the opportunity to celebrate as you wish. I certainly hope I have offended no one and that I was able to include everyone. Otherwise, I would just feel so very, very bad I would have to take a handful of mind altering synthetic pharmaceuticals and cower in a closet until I felt better about myself.

SOCIAL ENGINEERING

May 7, 2015

Common Core education is nothing more than social engineering. Simple math problems now take up to ten minutes to solve for the best and brightest. Even then, the accepted answer is not always the correct answer. High school graduates still read with 7th grade proficiency. Our junior colleges are stymied with remedial courses and high school class work. Yet, adolescents armed with a high school diploma expect welcoming into the business world with a $50K minimum starting position.

The common core materials I have seen suggest a very socialist point of view that subliminally incites unnecessary racism, presents only a solitary view of the environment, wealth and wealth redistribution, and a distinctive leftist political direction. The children are not being taught how to gather information, explore options and arrive at logical conclusions.  They are being taught what to think and believe.

My personal research has, to date, found no offsetting viewpoints. Thus, in my opinion, today’s youth are not being educated, they are being indoctrinated to accept life in a very divisive socialist society.

The following is just one example of how racism is interjected into a lesson plan.

FAIRNESS DOCTRINES

September 29, 2014

Fair is good. Fair is great. Forcing fairness, however, creates hostilities and fragile egos.

For an adult or big kid, taking candy from a baby is not right, it’s not fair, it’s not moral. It is evil. Everyone except the evil knows that and generally adheres to the doctrine. So what makes it right, fair, moral or righteous for a government to take an adult’s earnings or possessions without their permission? When is it “fair” to limit one’s speech because it does not conform to another person’s beliefs, what they choose to accept or want to hear?

At what point does fairness or political correctness hinder society? Political correctness, in virtually every situation, diminishes one party or viewpoint to promote another. Thus, fairness under this facade is not fair. An atheist barking about having to see a cross at a cemetery, a gay or transgender bellowing about access to his/her choice of public restroom facilities, a young girl demanding admission to a boyscout jamboree or a white congressman forcing the black caucus to accept his or her membership are just a few examples of how political correctness interferes with personal fairness, opportunity, and natural diversity.

When demands are made upon a person or group to accept and embrace the viewpoints or wants of another, that is not fair. Societal engineering for homogeneity destroys will and limits ascension. It is contrary to human norms. It is a method of control and nothing less.

I have no outward biases against women, gays, atheists, Muslims (in general), blacks, Hispanics or any other people distinctly different from myself. However, I don’t feel I should have to change to be more like a certain aspect of them. Don’t tell me I have to participate in homosexual activities in order to prove to you that I’m not a homophobe. And, don’t call me a racist or misogynist because my views don’t coincide with the perspectives of a person of color or different gender. It’s not fair to me.

We give trophies to our youth, not for doing an outstanding job, but for merely showing up for soccer practice. They receive a “B” in class, not for having the right answers or doing the assignments completely and correctly, but for professing to have made an effort. We have to be fair to every student. When Johnny is sad, he gets a pill to alter his mood. As adults, they have learned that putting forth an effort for accomplishment is not necessary and are likely to sue when fired for inferior performance.
.
Society has progressively created a generation that is fragile, less tolerant and more aggressive toward others of differing opinion or actions. What was once a heated discussion has become a call to arms, to draw knives or guns and eliminate the opposing viewpoint. Or, worse yet, trashing a young individual in the best way possible…on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr or Instagram. That will make them feel so bad that the Zoloft will be rendered ineffective and they will take their own life.

Social engineering for acceptance and tolerance is causing more animosity, more hatred and more hostility than ever before. It could be a transitional stage before becoming a Stepford society. It may also create an enormous population of snowflake personalities so fragile they will melt at the first occurrence of discord. It may also lead to a violently contentious uprising that can only be controlled through outright warlike aggression with the victor then dictating what is fair.

SOCIAL JUSTICE AND RECONVEYANCE

September 25, 2014

Be it through education, taxation, regulation or litigation, social justice provides a pathway for the Robin Hood mentality wealth transference. Unfortunately, social justice robs people of middle to upper-middle means individually and collectively but does not deprive the kings of their bounties. Social justice has an inverse effect on stability and equity that the architects refuse to publicly acknowledge.

Social justice is a fantasy ideology that will never be completely accomplished because the presumptive goals are unattainable. Coerced distribution for the purpose of equality must have enforcement and oversight. Instantly there is a chasm with controllers of the distribution on one side and those who are part of the distribution network on the other.

In education, using a bell curve to adjust grades can accomplish multiple objectives while introducing unplanned and unintended consequences. Grading on a curve has long been known as a way to raise the average grade for students. It makes the average student look above average. It takes the stigma out of sub-standard performance. At the same time, it raises the perception that the teacher is doing a good job of imparting information of value. However, the students receiving the somewhat elevated grades soon realize there is little need for more research, time spent problem solving or information analysis. The grade will be there, anyway.

For sports, social justice means no longer winning or losing. Being on the field is enough to win a trophy or get a date with a cheer leader. If you don’t play hard, you won’t risk injury and the rewards will be the same. After all, you don’t want to be a contributing factor to the humiliation of the opposing team. A tie is as good as a win, go for the tie.

As for financial well-being, if you’re born into poverty, there is little need to try to rise above. To reach middle class requires hard work and only produces an income that might be considered re-distributable. You lose the government entitlements. So unless you can earn enough to overcome the lost government benefits received for sitting on your butt and still be better off after the redistribution, why even try?

The Utopian theory of social justice does not “level any playing field”.  It actually raises one end of the field while lowering the other. It separates the people of any given population into two classes, a wealthy ruling class and a class working for subsistence. The “haves” will always have and the “have-naughts” will forever be wanting under this type of system. It starts at youth. At the earliest age possible children are trained to get by with mediocre effort (the bell curve). For the have-naughts, social justice begins by providing a sense of security.  It ends with adults in chains under total domination.  There is no bell curve to elevate low performance as deemed by the haves, or the wealthy governing class.

Unless otherwise muted, it is human nature to strive for self betterment. Social engineering for justice or fairness to all provides just enough to remove incentives for success. Social justice is a means of causing people to accept mediocrity and even failure as victory. Such complacency may be in the form of a pill to overcome depression or perceived depression. Government run healthcare might be the pharmacy those pills.
