….Technology, even considering a possible neutralization of intercontinental nuclear weapons, has rendered mass armies obsolete.

Because the mass army is obsolete, the monetary system that enables it is also obsolete…..

UK Government forcing LGB lobby ideology on independent schools

The upper class are concerned with two things: inheritance and grandchildren. They got what they wanted, state control of sex education, they were too arrogant, however, to expect it would ever be used against them.

from: http://www.breitbart.com/Breitbart-London/2014/10/10/New-Government-Regulations-Compel-Schools-to-Promote-Same-Sex-Marriage

…These coercive provisions are contained in the new Independent School Standards regulations which change the legal framework for academies, free schools and private education….

This latest aggression by social engineers in a supposedly Conservative-led government is ominously significant, even historic, in that it crosses a red line never before violated by introducing state interference in the curriculum. Even Labour never went as far as that in its social engineering mania….

Now, however, these new regulations will trample down that tradition of political neutrality in the curriculum in English schools. Regulation (b) (vi) introduces a duty to “encourage respect for other people, paying particular regard to the protected characteristics set out in the Equality Act 2010 (a)”. Note the weasel language regarding “protected characteristics”. Nobody has any problem with pupils being taught respect for other people – they have long been instructed in that duty in religious knowledge classes, civics lessons and in the home.

But respecting “protected characteristics” defined in the most un-British piece of legislation ever passed is an entirely different matter.It involves ideology rather than people. One of the protected characteristics set out in the Equality Act is sexual orientation. The regulations assert a “new requirement for schools to actively promote principles which encourage respect for persons with protected characteristics” with the intention of allowing the Secretary of State to take regulatory action in various situations, including “failure to address homophobia”.

Colin Hart, Campaign Director of the Coalition for Marriage, observes: “As we know from recent history, reasonable opposition to same-sex marriage is routinely described as ‘homophobia’.” He asks if a school must discipline or dismiss a teacher who voices support for traditional marriage and whether parents of prospective pupils will be interrogated about their beliefs before their child is granted a school place. Such totalitarian inquisition is already practised with regard to fostering and adoption.

The sinister term “actively promote” was defined in the Government’s consultation document: “ ‘Actively promote’ also means challenging pupils, staff or parents expressing opinions contrary to fundamental British values.” Anyone who thinks that is simply aimed at jihadist sympathisers is sadly deluded. “Fundamental British values”, in a Government context, bears no relation to the traditional ethos, beliefs and standards of mainstream Britain; on the contrary, it is coded language for political correctness.

This blueprint for indoctrination further insists that in future private schools must conform to “national norms” rather than the expectations of parents. So much for independent education. If this is the climate of enforcement that will prevail in the independent sector, what kind of Stalinist Thought Police can we expect to rule over state schools?

The QC’s opinion commissioned by the Christian Institute, another body alarmed by this interference with academic and moral freedom, quotes a ruling by the European Court of Human Rights: “The state is forbidden to pursue an aim of indoctrination that might be considered as not respecting parents’ religious and philosophical convictions. That is the limit that the states must not exceed.”

The British Government prefers to “challenge” parents. They should accept that challenge and respond, most notably at the ballot box. Some of them took the opportunity of doing so on Thursday. It beggars belief that this offensive against the ideological impartiality of the school curriculum, traditional marriage, parental authority and freedom of speech results from an initiative by a so-called Conservative Prime Minister.

Now we know just how “free” the Tories’ free schools are intended to be. Independent education is an oxymoron when the intruder State attempts to enforce its progressive prejudices on pupils and teachers. We are being herded along a road well trodden by totalitarian dictators before. How long before we arrive at the Orwellian destination where pupils are indoctrinated with the slogan “Be a good citizen – report your parents”? Debauching the school curriculum is an aggression too far by Dave’s PC social engineers.

Welcome to the Idiocracy: Dysgenics in the US and Beyond

Any society will get more of what it subsidizes and less of what it taxes. _Peter Schiff

The dark blue line reflects a dysgenic decline in average IQ.
The other lines reflect individual national population projections
Dysgenics is the decline in average human fitness due to excessive proliferation of low-fitness genotypes. Here we are looking at a genetically based decline in IQ over time. When the average population IQ declines too low, the society cannot maintain the infrastructures created by its earlier, higher-IQ populations. This trend leads to breakdown and collapse.

One of the best analysis of dysgenic trends in human populations comes from:

“A prototype handheld sensor expected to detect and replenish elecrolytes may aid athletes (runners), soldiers on long missions, and ordinary citizens trying to minimize doctor visits and resultant lab charges. Runners, athletes in other strenuous sports and soldiers on long missions also might prefer immediate knowledge of their electrolytic states as an aid to improved performance. Electrolytes such as potassium, calcium, magnesium and other salts are key in carrying nerve impulses that tell the heart and other muscles when to contract or relax.”

Excellent. Except we (GB) already live under socialism. Terrible graphic by moi.

this is how it really worksExplained well by the Captain. Crony capitalism, not true capitalism, is somewhere in the light blue region. Statism is the push leftward. Libertarianism pushes rightward.

Nevertheless, dat subtitle: “Without a smaller state, decline is inevitable” Have they been reading me?
