1.With control of the school system, and operating it along the lines of Mushroom Management, .....

"Keep 'em in the dark, and feed 'em.......manure".....government can get most of their captive audience to focus on tiny, finite pieces of data that they can control, rather than through the prism of what America has always stood for.

The most succinct expression of true Americana is the phrase "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness."

Perhaps some know that before it became “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness” in our Declaration of Independence, John Locke wrote that man has a right to “life, liberty, and property.”
Property Rights Have Personal Parallels




2. Consider this one fact, and every totalitarian/collectivist worldviews fails the test of liberty.
Property rights are inseparable from liberty, freedom, and what ‘America’ stands for. Every collectivist political doctrine…communism, socialism, Fascism, Liberalism, Progressivism, Nazism, can be summarized thus:
Leon Trotsky long ago pointed out that where there is no private ownership, individuals can be bent to the will of the state”
Some use gulags and concentration camps, some simply use regulations, statutes and rules….but they all restrict and abolish private property.

3. Today is a good time to review the importance of private property, as it is the day John Locke died…
John Locke, (born August 29, 1632, Wrington, Somerset, England—died October 28, 1704, High Laver, Essex), English philosopher whose works lie at the foundation of modern philosophical empiricism and political liberalism. He was an inspirer of both the European Enlightenment and the Constitution of the United States.
Britannica.com



4. . ""Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness" is a well-known phrase in the United States Declaration of Independence.... Locke argued in his Two Treatises of Government that political society existed for the sake of protecting "property", which he defined as a person's "life, liberty, and estate".
That all men are by nature equally free and independent and have certain inherent rights, of which, when they enter into a state of society, they cannot, by any compact, deprive or divest their posterity; namely, the enjoyment of life and liberty, with the means of acquiring and possessing property, and pursuing and obtaining happiness and safety." Virginia Declaration of Rights"
Life Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness - Wikipedia the free encyclopedia

...John Locke....expressed the radical view that government is morally obliged to serve people, namely by protecting life, liberty, and property. He explained the principle of checks and balances to limit government power. He favored representative government and a rule of law."
John Locke Natural Rights to Life Liberty and Property The Freeman Foundation for Economic Education




5. To judge how far popular culture has veered from that view, look at the riots against private property encouraged by the Democrats, descendants of the Bolsheviks.

And this …the Police Chief of Raleigh, North Carolina.

Raleigh Police Chief Cassandra Deck-Brown has a particularly.......odd......view of policing.

She isn't inclined to do it.



At 14:30 “I will not put an officer in harms way to protect the property….”

America has always stood for social injustices where minorities and women were degraded and suppressed. Liberty, justice and freedom are just words that are eschewed by the social piers and social strata of the US that is divided by class and money...If this were a truly free nation there would be no drug war nor would there be a monied elite, yet that is not how humans function and so it is the same in the USA that it is in any nation on Earth.

The problem is that too many young people don't realize the downside of a collectivist society. They think they can cast off the burdens and responsibilities of taking care of yourself and your family to others (the gov't) without realizing they are essentially volunteering to be slaves. Big gov't is about one size fits all, and individual choice goes right down the drain. STFU and do what you're told or we'll send your ass to a gulag somewhere. Or else you get suicided.

But you believe that it is possible that non-whites can enjoy those principles; although, there is no indication that non-whites even attempted to organize communities and societies to promulgate those ideals. And here we are at the demise of the improper organization of those ideals for the United States, and non-whites do not have a solution. Non-whites think they are going to commandeer control of the inadequate, and subsequently, irreversibly corrupt system to oppress white people - and call it justice. LoL

6. So, John Locke wrote that private property rights are intimately intertwined with liberty. The Founding Fathers studied, and revered Locke.
Government was about enforcing laws that ensured private property rights.

Watch this bit of irony: at the same time as the Founders were espousing capitalism, the free market, and private property, the provenance of every totalitarian revolution burst on the scene, in the form of the French Revolution!


Jean-Jacques Rousseau.
Rousseau was the spiritual godfather of the French Revolution, and every similar one that followed it!

Know what those 'similar' ones were?
Right....the most maniacal, sociopathic revolutions in history!

a. " If the French revolution was the end of monarchy and aristocratic privilege and the emergence of the common man and democratic rights, it was also the beginnings of modern totalitarian government and large-scale executions of "enemies of the People" by impersonal government entities (Robespierre's "Committee of Public Safety").
This legacy would not reach its fullest bloom until the tragic arrival of the German Nazis and Soviet and Chinese communists of the 20th century. Jean-Jacques Rousseau, the precursor of the modern pseudo-democrats such as Stalin and Hitler and the "people's democracies."
French Revolution - Robespierre and the Legacy of the Reign of Terror



Guess what Rousseau blamed for all evil in the world?


Yup....private property.

Which non-whites?

Is it true that the shade of their non-whiteness directly corresponds to their desire to oppress white folks?

What about white folks who turn really brown in the summer? Could we sneak by and not get oppressed as much?

7. As per the premise of this thread, private property is an essential element of liberty, or freedom, of the America of the Founders.
And collectivist governance works against private property via regulations, statues, rules.

If we're going to rebound this economy in 2021 and beyond then we need to make it as easy and cheap as possible to start a small business or expand an existing one. The Biden economy plan is moving in the opposite direction, higher taxes and more regulations will NOT help create jobs and economic growth. Never has, never will.

"...opposite direction..." is exactly right.


But Democrats aren't the only ones that make the most absurd lies, you know, like Biden turning out to be the very 'foreign asset' that they claimed Trump was.


Have you seen the never-Trumper Lincoln Project, where they claim Trump, who is ending regulations and restoring private property, is like the communist land-grabber Castro?


Watch this:




The Democrat predecessors, the Bolsheviks, were mass murderers, so they claim that of the other side.

The non-white people who blame white people for their failings.

Is it true that the shade of their non-whiteness directly corresponds to their desire to oppress white folks?
No.

You're a piece of stupid that is trying to exploit an inadequacy of communications in an effort to massage your ego. I'm way ahead of you - I am the person who will be credited for correcting the problem - stupid.

You vote for the liberal party, the party of slavery and segregation, and enjoy being oppressed. Always playing the victim.
How long are you going to lie to yourself son? Blacks were republicans for 100 years and all we got was jim crow. Go peddle that lie to somebody who doesn't know the real history between the republican party and blacks.

You see idiot, when I say whites are responsible, it is because there is a long, long lost of laws and policies showing this to be the case.

Sorry bud, there was no magical shapeshifting going on. You're not going to whitewash history.

Here's your hero LBJ:

"These Negroes, they're getting pretty uppity these days and that's a problem for us since they've got something now they never had before, the political pull to back up their uppityness. Now we've got to do something about this, we've got to give them a little something, just enough to quiet them down, not enough to make a difference."
