Communist goal 43 is quoted as "Overthrow all colonial governments before native populations are ready for self-government." This goal is the cumulative effect of leading young people down the road to tyranny. It implies the imposition of tyranny by the few over the many. There is a reason that classical education is no longer the cornerstones of public education. It is impossible to rule an educated and free people.
With this in mind, I ask young progressives and socialists to consider a basic question. Do you want your children to grow up as slaves?
If not, there are two paths to ensure their futures. The easier path is that of The Prince by Niccolò Machiavelli and enslavement over others. The harder path is that of the U.S. Constitution, the 5000 Year Leap, and earning the privilege of freedom. The harder path requires not only the knowledge of The Prince but the willingness to sacrifice all to ensure freedom for yourself and those around you. This harder path was once known as a classical education.
Post ScriptMany Americans blindly follow when they hear the term "rights." It seems that our powers of perception have become drained. Let me point out that the pursuit of all these "rights" has led to massive debt. America is so indebted that it seems that the federal government can no longer raise interest rates due to the cost of the interest payments. ObamaCare will add trillions more to the debt in the name of "rights." This is money that the American public owes and the quickest way to lose freedom is through debt.
Freedom is the exception to the tyrannical rule
