Big Government Is Making America’s Youth Weak
Article from Reason by Lenore Skenazy and Jonathan Haidt.
One day last year, a citizen on a prairie path in the Chicago suburb of Elmhurst came upon a teen boy chopping wood. Not a body. Just some already-fallen branches. Nonetheless, the onlooker called the cops.
Officers interrogated the boy, who said he was trying to build a fort for himself and his friends. A local news site reports the police then “took the tools for safekeeping to be returned to the boy’s parents.”
Elsewhere in America, preschoolers at the Learning Collaborative in Charlotte, North Carolina, were thrilled to receive a set of gently used playground equipment. But the kids soon found out they would not be allowed to use it, because it was resting on grass, not wood chips. “It’s a safety issue,” explained a day care spokeswoman. Playing on grass is against local regulations.
And then there was the query that ran in Parents magazine a few years back: “Your child’s old enough to stay home briefly, and often does. But is it okay to leave her and her playmate home while you dash to the dry cleaner?” Absolutely not, the magazine averred: “Take the kids with you, or save your errand for another time.” After all, “you want to make sure that no one’s feelings get too hurt if there’s a squabble.”

The problem with conservatives is that if they would rather lose than take a half loaf. It is time to stop the progressive movement even if it means not getting there in one step.
The dumbing down of students by our so called educations system is a major problem. Neuro toxins in vaccinations is destroying young people. Watch the DVD “Vaxxed.” Librium and pot ash in the chemtrails being sprayed on all of us is putting us all to sleep. Our food is being poisoned by GMOed food, growth hormones, herbicides, pesticides, and irradiation. People in large cities have their water poisoned by fluoride, a waste product from the production of aluminum. Read Jim Marrs book “Population Control.” Many teachers and professors deserve the blame for dumbing down students in that their primary objective is to create communists, Marxists and revolutionaries. The churches have become silent as very young children are being encouraged by the vile demonic media to change their sex. Our government is no longer serving us, their employers, and are primarily concerned about making themselves unbelievably rich. It is not just the young people who are being abused, it is all of us.
