The Stepford Wives, Husbands, Sons and Daughters

“Parent choice” proceeds from the belief that the purpose of education is to provide individual students with an education. In fact, educating the individual is but a means to the true end of education, which is to create a viable social order to which individuals contribute and by which they are sustained. “Family choice” is, therefore, basically selfish and anti-social in that it focuses on the “wants” of a single family rather than the “needs” of society.   Association of California School Administrators, 1979

Whoa, this country was founded on individual freedom – not collectivism, communism, socialism or any other form of groupthink. The original settlers soon discovered how well those ideas work. Believing that they should all work together to plant crops and provide for the settlement, they almost died because everyone relied on others to do the work. The work didn’t get done and they barely made it through the winter. It was then that each person was given a tract of land and left to themselves to make it prosper – and many of them did.

Collectivism was rejected when the Constitution was written. And some of us actually still think the individual is the focus of our laws. Without freedom, supported by private property rights, free market capitalism, and the Rule of Law, man is but a slave to the ruling class. Progressives, socialists, neocons and RINOs have been steadily working to gut the Constitution and replace the Great American Experiment with a One World Government of Marxian communism.

Regretfully many people in high positions in every area of American life have worked tirelessly to bring this about. And they have been succeeding while we have been asleep at the wheel. This has been going for over 100 years. In 1918, Mary Parker Follett wrote, The New State, group organization, the solution of popular government. Because it is a blueprint for making Stepford Wives out of all of usm it was republished in 1998. In the foreword by Benjamin R. Barber, Follett is extolled for “. . .her special contribution to see early on how inadequate the adjustments made at the time of the founding to the principles of representative government had become a little more than a hundred years aft the ratification of the Constitution. . .,” and protesting that she “has been far less read than comparable works by Dewey, Croly, Lippmann, Laski, and other contemporaries.”

We should be thankful that she was far less read. Take a look at some of her ideas (that her contemporaries – and ours — obviously have read and taken to heart).

We have long been trying to understand the relation of the individual to society; we are only just beginning to see that there is no “individual,” that there is no “society.” . . . The old psychology was based on the isolated individual as the unit, on the assumption that a man thinks, feels and judges independently. Now that we know that there is no such thing as a separate ego, that individuals are created by reciprocal interplay, our whole study of psychology is being transformed.p.19

The vital relation of the individual to the world is through his groups; they are the potent factors in shaping our lives.p.20

But there is no such thing as the “individual,” there is no such thing as “society”; there is only the group and the group-unit – the social individual. . . . From the analysis of the group must come an understanding of collective thought and collective feeling, of the common will and concerted activity, of the true nature of freedom, the illusion of self-and-others, the essential unity of men, the real meaning of patriotism, and the whole secret of progress and of life as a genuine interpenetration which produces true community. p.21,22

The group process contains the secret of collective life, it is the key to democracy, it is the master lesson for every individual to learn, it is our chief hope for the political, the social, the international life of the future. p.23

This whole book is anger-inducing, but let me add just one more to see where this is going:

First, our whole idea of education is rapidly changing. The chief aim of education now is to fit the child into the life of the community; we do not think of his “individual” development except as contributing to that. Or it would be nearer the truth to say that we recognize that his individual development is essentially just that. The method of accomplishing this is chiefly through (1) the introduction of group class-room work in the place of individual recitation (2) the addition of vocational subjects to the curriculum and the establishment of vocational schools, and (3) the organizing of vocational guidance departments and placement bureaus in connection with public schools.

In many of the large cities of the United States the public schools have a vocational guidance department, and it is not considered that the schools have done their duty by the child until they have helped him to choose his life occupation, have trained him in some degree for it, and have actually found him a job, that is, fitted him into the community. It is becoming gradually accepted that this is a function of the state, and several of our states are considering the appropriation of funds for the carrying on of such departments. p. 105,106.

Now we know where “you didn’t build that,” came from. Keep in mind this was written in 1918 and has been being instilled in our schools since then. There are so many other parts of this book I would like to quote, but this should be enough to give you the direction of the book.

The individual is handicapped by coming face-to-face with a conspiracy so monstrous he cannot believe it exists. J. Edgar Hoover

If you are like me, you have to be stupefied. How can humans do this to other humans? After studying this for a while, you realize they are. Why? My only guess is that it is a combination of: 1, many people accepting the elimination of any moral compass, 2, the premise that power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely, and 3, this corruption of man and his humanity has been so long taught that it is a ‘given’ for many. Decency, respect of human rights, moral values, have been bred out of our progeny for decades now. The human race is being manipulated to be more like animals than humans

Yuri Bezemenov (now Tomas Schuman), was a Russian KGB officer involved in propaganda and subversion, who defected and tried to tell the free world what was going on.

The plan was, as was a slow long term process of 4 stages to, as Khrushchev said, destroy us from within by:

1) Demoralization — 15-20 years to educate/brainwash up to three generations of people.  Exposure to true information does not matter to them after that.

2) Destabilization — 2-5 years of defense, economy, foreign relations.

3) Crisis — as little as 6 weeks for radical change.

4) Normalization — establishing the new status as the new norm.

If this had been only the USSR, it would never have been achieved, but ever since the meeting at Jeckyll Island (see earlier blog), and even before that, we have been being manipulated to achieve the communist/socialist goal via the Hegelian Dialectic. As Niki Raapana put it, The Hegelian dialectic is “the framework for guiding our thoughts and actions into conflicts that lead us to a predetermined solution. If we do not understand how the Hegelian dialectic shapes our perceptions of the world, then we do not know how we are helping to implement the (communist/cultural Marxism) vision for the future.

The urban dictionary defines cultural Marxism as “The gradual process of destroying all traditions, languages, religions, individuality, government, family, law and order in order to re-assemble society in the future as a communist utopia. This utopia will have no notion of gender, traditions, morality, God or even family or the state.”

As I said above, if this had been only the USSR doing this, it would never have been achieved. But look at this statement from a 1953 Reese Committee hearing:

“Mr. Dodd, all of us here at the policy-making level have had experience, either in the O.S.S. or the European Economic Administration, with directives from the White House. We operate under those directives here. Would you like to know what those directives are? [Dodd, replying in the affirmative, Gaither continued: The substance of them is that we shall use our grant-making power so to alter our life in the United States that we can be comfortably merged with the Soviet Union.” H. Rowan Gaither (ital. mine)

In 1934 the Carnegie Corporation commissioned and funded the Commission on Social Studies of the American Historical Association to, basically, structure social studies in order to present socialism as desirable. The study’s Conclusions and Recommendations for the Social Studies states:

This commission was also driven to this broader conception of its task by the obvious fact that American civilization, in common with the Western civilization, is passing through one of the great critical pages of history, is modifying its traditional faith and economic individualism (Free enterprise), and is embarking upon vast experiments in and social planning and control which call for large scale cooperation on the part of the people.

Cumulative evidence supports the conclusion that in the United States and in other countries the age of ”Laissez-faire” in the economy and government is closing and that a new age of collectivism is emerging. As to the specific form which this “Collectivism,” this integration and interdependence, . . . it may involve eliminating or supplanting of private property by public property or it may entail the preservation of private property, extended and distributed among the masses. . . .. Almost certainly it will involve a larger measure of compulsory as well as voluntary cooperation of citizens in the conduct of the functions of government, and an increasing state of interventions in fundamental branches of the economy previously left to the individual discretion and initiative.

THIS IS ALL IN BLACK AND WHITE. It is NOT a conspiracy theory. It is being perpetrated on America and the West now and has been for decades by OUR LEADERS. If knowledge is power, then learn as much as you can and teach your children and grandchildren so they might hold the key to reviving civilization after the next Dark Ages. Most of those in the school system and those who rely on Mainstream media to get their news are already too far brainwashed to be retrieved. They can only accept what they have been programmed to believe. They are lost, but we will be lost right along with them if we do not stop this now.
