This administration has done many frightening things, but the Obama administration has taken perhaps the most terrifying Orwellian action to date: It has decided to get in your head.
The Obama administration has decided that it not only knows what is good for you, but it wants to manipulate you, psychologically, to do what it deems “good.”
The government wants low-income students to go to college, for example. That sounds fine on its face. The problem is, many of those accepted and financed by taxpayers to go to college never actually bother to fill out the necessary paperwork to enroll.
Rather than address government-imposed institutionalization and indoctrination, which some college-aged students choose not to embrace today – or the fact that the “everybody gets a trophy” mentality has diminished personal responsibility and led to kids so lazy they won’t even fill out some papers for a free education paid for by others – the government wants to manipulate students.
Its answer is to text the would-be students and push them to finish their paperwork at “key times” as determined by a new “behavioral sciences team.” Its “success” data claims 6 percent more students ultimately enroll when “nudged” psychologically by the government to do so. But how many of those students actually graduate, and what real impact does it have on their lives and our country? No one answered those questions before claiming psychological intervention on an unwitting population is the answer.
Other goals of Obama’s new team? “Nudging” people to sign up for Obamacare.
As a member of the mental health community, I have warned of the dangers of turning to a field that has very few answers and a blemished record regarding liberty.
The mental-health profession has no shortage of radical statists – proponents of unbridled tyranny who have been trained by other statists, in statist institutions, studying theory written by agnostic, statist, even fascist theorists.
Take, for example, the leading “science” on sex. Most of the sex psych taught in universities today is based upon the work of Alfred Kinsey. Kinsey sexually experimented on Nazi prisoners of war and babies. Dr. Judith Reisman has exposed much of Kinsey’s criminal work, but Kinsey’s work remains the foundation of the body of work commonly used in sex education textbooks across the country today. His work condones “understanding” rather than punishment for violent sex offenders, advocates sex with children and denies rape. Imagine what it’ll be like when those theories are codified into what the government deems “good” and “nudges” you to do in your life.
Sex psych is just one example.
I have repeatedly warned of the dangers foretold by Second Amendment advocates (myself included) regarding proposals to increase funding for mental health treatment in lieu of gun grabs. Gun grabs should horrify any free society, but turning our liberty over to the mental health cabal should be even more frightening.
After news broke of Obama’s intention to sign executive orders to restrict gun sales, Donald Trump and other presidential candidates called for the mental health community to step in as their main defense of the Second Amendment.
I have been an outspoken defender of Mr. Trump, but here is where I contend he is mistaken: If the statist mental health community gets to decide who keeps their guns and who is labeled “crazy,” guess what political groups they will begin to strip of rights first? Lois Lerner’s IRS targeting shows us the total absence of scruples. Imagine the new thought-crime proposals envisioned in the minds of Obama’s new behavioral sciences team!
They will start with innocuous sounding initiatives like helping veterans get their benefits and helping kids get into college, etc. But remember one thing: They are trained to manipulate! The goal is to take your guns, inhibit your political speech and take your property. They know to start small and build to their perfect statist utopia. They know who they want to declare “crazy.” They know exactly how to implement a scheme to further brainwash a country that is already protecting those who have declared war on it, that is spending itself into oblivion, and that is voluntarily forfeiting one liberty after another in the name of safety! This is precisely the template used to dismantle every free society in history.
For the sake of all that is sacred, stop, America!
Take a hard look at this new behavioral sciences team, and at the suggested gun grab by those who are supposed experts on who is crazy. Remember what we learned from Nazi Germany and other tyrannical regimes.
Then get busy on social media, and take on this issue. It could literally be the final straw in the murder of freedom.
