Do We Really Know What It Means to "Privatize" Education and Other Government Services?
The following is a commentary I wrote for my Facebook page this morning. Last weekend I took part in an absolutely excellent workshop for a number of researchers, researching a number of different areas. It was very eye-opening to see how ANTI-REPUBLICAN governance is occurring across all spectra of government and how few people (including me!) really understand how pervasive this phenomenon is.
I will be writing some more well-researched (with links) blog posts on such topics as Technocracy, but today's post is more of a down-and-dirty, opinion piece. I urge you, however, to "google" or "bing" or whatever you do - some of the topics and ideas I present here and see what you find. We MUST begin to see our government as it is rapidly becoming - essentially Marxist, with rising Fascism components - or we will most certainly be lost.
Many national Republicans - (including Oklahoma Senator Clark Jolley) - want to privatize government services such as education and DHS.
Is privatizing public services BAD? If so, how?
Yes, privatization of public government is BAD. A Republic is governance of
the people through members of the people elected to represent the
populace using the force of law to protect them from their government.
When you PRIVATIZE government, you remove (shut out/eliminate) the
voice of the people in the process. When government services are
privatized, citizens PAY for services which exist in a private sector
sphere, thereby eliminating 'free market' principles from working. A
'privatized' government agency can't fail because tax payers prop up it
up to prevent that from happening. This produces ZERO oversight or
accountability to the taxpayers who pay for the 'services'. This, a
process directly akin to Fascism in many ways.
wants to privatize DHS. Okay, let's say a DHS head is paid via public
money, but is 'elected' to that position by a PRIVATE BOARD through what
is called an appointment. Now, tax-payers little to no ability to call
for his/her dismissal because he/she is under PRIVATE contract with an
essentially private board.
Additionally, education in
America according to the Founders, was to be PUBLIC so that ALL people -
whether rich or poor - could take advantage of the ability to learn to
read and to write in order to understand the Bible and the Constitution.
Latin American (and many African) countries have PRIVATE education,
which results in a situation in which much of the poor populace is never
even able to be taught how to read and write.
This shift in
'consent of the governed' to 'governance' is completely antithetical to
the Constitution. Those suggesting we should privatize government
services in order for it to become more efficient are simply attempting
to take complete control of government moving it from "consent of the
governed" to "consent of the APPOINTED". Americans should NEVER consent
to PRIVATIZED government, yet we have been lied to and told that this
is better for all. I say NO to Fascism! How about you!?
Here are a couple of examples I found in my inbox just today:
