HEALTH, EDUCATION AND SOCIAL CONTROL
Dennis L. Cuddy, Ph.D.
The New Freedom Initiative mental health screening, referred to in earlier Parts of this series, initially will focus upon youth. However, Senator Hillary Clinton on June 24, 2004, sponsored S.2572 "The Positive Aging Act," which will provide mental health screening and treatment services for older Americans, and will be "coordinated and integrated with the services of social service, mental health, and health care providers in an area."
This legislation sponsored by Sen. Clinton uses the same key terms as did the New Transatlantic Agenda (NTA) during the Clinton presidency. On May 18, 1998, the White House released a statement indicating that "through the NTA, created in 1995, the United States and the European Union have focused on addressing the challenges and opportunities of global integration."
The NTA began with a December 21, 1995 agreement between the U.S. and the European Community calling for "improving the quality of human resourse development...Transatlantic student mobility....and thus portability of academic credits." This was followed by an NTA 1997 conference where it was stated that in an information-based global economy, "governments too are obliged to adapt their economic, training and social welfare programs." The final report from the conference mentioned positively ACHIEVE, which measures and reports each state's annual progress in establishing internationally competitive standards. The president of ACHIEVE is Michael Cohen, who oversaw the implementation of the 1994 reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, and who also wrote "Goals 2000" for the Clinton administration.
Tavistock (mentioned previously in this series) and the European Commission have also carried out a study project in the U.S. and parts of Europe involving the assessment and validation of students' skills, with information placed on personal skills' Smartcards which "become real passports to employment," according to the study project. For more information on all of this, see [article link]
In addition to Tavistock's Smartcards being "passports to employment," Americans will also have "Health Passports." Federal and state agencies, as well as others (including the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation mentioned in earlier Parts of this series), have already sponsored "The Health Passport Project," piloted in Nevada, Wyoming and North Dakota. The project included Health Passport Smartcards, which can be used at any participating clinic, doctor's office, or grocery store. In announcing the project, the Western Governors Association publications office in 1998 stated that "the Health Passport smartcard will provide portable computing capability...,and will ensure convergence with financial and retail industry plans for a universal transition to smartcards by the year 2000....The Big Picture: Network services are providing a foundation for improved governance in health care, education, public assistance, criminal justice, and other spheres of public and private endeavor. The Health Passport is an important component of broader strategies to develop such networks."
Of course, a nationwide (or international) Health Passport would need a unique identifier, which has been facilitated by the 1996 Kennedy-Kassebaum law (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act), which gave the federal Department of Health and Human Services the power to create "unique health care identifiers" so that every American's personal medical records could be monitored and tracked. The only thing missing is the ability to track each American herself or himself, but that may soon be possible as on July 27, 2004, the FDA issued a ruling beginning a final review process regarding whether hospitals can use the VeriChip company's RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) tags implanted in patients. RFID's radio waves can travel through solid objects and therefore can be read even through walls, thereby destroying any concept of privacy. VeriChip is also working on an implant that will use GPS (Global Positioning System) technology. At a global conference on RFIDs, September 28-30, 2004, in Baltimore, Pat Rizzotto, vice-president of global customer initiatives for Johnson & Johnson (which manufactures medication for mental illness), said RFID chips will be "on everything from diapers to surgical instruments. There will be tags and readers everywhere."
The global monitoring and tracking of objects and people will be necessary for the coming world government. The key to implementing this is to get key people in key positions of power, or as I repeatedly heard when I was with the federal government, "Personnel is policy." In terms of the power elite, this follows Cecil Rhodes' plan "to take the government of the whole world" by getting Rhodes scholars like Bill Clinton and others in such key positions of power.
Other examples of how this works will also be instructive at this time. For example, when a young Wayne Peterson was near the end of his graduating year at the University of Wisconsin, he was on his way to lunch when he was stopped by David Rockefeller, who asked, "Wouldn't you be interested in joining the Peace Corps?" To make a long story short, toward the end of his Peace Corps stint, Peterson was supported by Congressman Melvin Laird (who would become President Nixon's Secretary of Defense) for a diplomatic post with the U.S. Information Agency (1967-1997), during which time Peterson began to promote "Lord Maitreya" (including on "The Merv Griffin Show" on television). Peterson has revealed: "Gorbachev was one of the first to work with Maitreya. Gorbachev doesn't mind his name used publlcly with Maitreya's emergence---seeing Him as the reappeared Christ." Maitreya as the reappeared Christ is, of course, a New Age concept. And as I explained in a previous Part of this series, it is a New Age New World Order that is the power elite's goal. In an update to my earlier mention of the removal of the Ten Commandments from public property while the pagan goddess Themis remains, the ACLU in May 2004 demanded that a tiny cross on Los Angeles County's official seal be removed, while not objecting to the large figure of the pagan goddess Pomona on thesame seal.
Another example of the power elite's placement of key people in key positions is former North Carolina Governor James B. Hunt, Jr. Have you ever heard of Bert Bennett? Of course you haven't. Relatively few people have. But did you know that Vice-President Hubert Humphrey referred to Bennett as "The Lord God Almighty of politics"? Bennett for many years has been a behind-the-scenes power broker, who was largely responsible for the rise to power of a number of people, including former Governor Hunt, whose story deserves some attention at this point because of his national influence in the areas of education and mental health.
In my NewsWithViews article, "Mental Health and World Citizenship," I referred to the federal government's August 1977 approach to Gov. Hunt to develop a plan to "regionalize child health care" as part of a national strategy. The resulting "Child Health Plan for Raising a New Generation" (CHP) included a broad definition of health similar to Alger Hiss' definition for the World Health Organization (WHO). According to the CHP, health handicaps "may be physical, mental, emotional or social." The CHP also included "genetic counseling," as well as "review of personal history...to see if an individual's progress deviates from desirable norms," and "in some cases aggressive outreach and even governmental intervention may be appropriate" along with a "regulatory or peer pressure approach to encourage testing" for health problems.
That the CHP referred to "handicaps" in broad terms was problematic, because Gov. Hunt on August 16, 1977 had written in a letter that he supported tax-funding of abortions because "we must concentrate on raising new generations of children who aren't stunted or handicapped in some way." As also mentioned in my "Mental Health and World Citizenship" article, Hunt would later become chairman of the National Advisory Board for the Robert Wood Johnson Mental Health Services for Youth program. When the CHP was completed, Hunt's wife presented a copy of it to U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Andrew Young's wife (who headed the International Year of the Child in the U.S.), and shortly thereafter, the IYC National Commission in Washington, DC, requested 50 copies of the CHP to distribute to its people in all 50 states.
After Hunt's CHP was exposed by this writer and others, he turned his attention to linking education and the economy. In April 1984, he wrote in PHI DELTA KAPPAN "Education for Economic Growth: A Critical Investment." He approached David Hamburg, head of the Carnegie Corporation in New York, with this idea, and in 1985, the Carnegie Forum on Education and the Economy was formed. In 1988, its name was changed to the National Center on Education and the Economy (NCEE), and the modern school-to-work movement was begun. Hunt was vice-chairman of NCEE, which included Hillary Clinton among its board members.
Among Hunt's other activities, he has been founding chairman of the National Center for Public Policy and Higher Education, and chairman of the following: (1) National Board for Professional Teaching Standards (brainchild of the Carnegie Forum), (2) Education Commission of the States, (3) National Education Goals Panel, (4) Southern Regional Education Board, (5) National Commission on Teaching and America's Future, (6) National Task Force on Education for Economic Growth, and (7) National Governors Association Task Force on Technological Innovation. He has also been co-chairman of the National Governors Association Education Leadership Team, and the National Commission on Asia in the Schools. In addition, he helped organize ACHIEVE mentioned earlier.
During his second eight years as Governor (1993-2001), Hunt's primary initiative concerning children and health was called "Smart Start" (the name the Kellogg Company would later choose for a cereal). In a March 31, 1993 announcement regarding Smart Start (SS), Hunt said "too many children come to school...struggling to overcome a family life of...neglect." SS also mentions "infant tracking" and "in-home visitations."
The word "neglect" at the time was beginning to be interpreted broadly to include "emotional" as well as "physical" neglect. And at the same time as SS was introduced, so was N.C. Senate Bill 496 establishing a committee to develop a plan to provide "mental health evaluations to all children suspected of being neglected." And N.C. Senate Bill 340 would grant "immunity from any civil or criminal liability to any county department of social services employee who takes a juvenile into temporary custody (without a court order)."
The next year (1994), federal school-to-work legislation was passed on May 4. Not only was NCEE (with Hunt as vice-chairman) a primary force behind this, but also behind "Goals 2000" (passed March 31) based upon the 8 national education goals established by the National Education Goals Panel in 1989 under the guidance of NCEE. Goal 1 stated that "All children will start school ready to learn." As soon as I saw those words, I knew it would be the basis for massive intervention by government in home life. And Goal 8 stated that "Every school will promote partnerships that will increase parental involvement and participation in promoting the social, emotional, and academic growth of children." Note the words "social" and "emotional," just like in Hunt's CHP. And the government schools were to be the parents' "partners," assuring that parents do not "neglect" or "abuse" their children in some way.
Two recent examples of how this works are as follows. ABC News on June 7, 2004, reported that Chad Taylor's son exhibited some adverse effects he suspected were the result of taking Ritalin. But when Taylor took his son off the drug, school officials reported him to New Mexico's Department of Children, Youth and Families, and a detective and social worker made a home visit. A spokesman for the Department said to KOAT-TV that parents could be charged with child abuse or neglect in situations like this. A week later, THE CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR on June 14 reported that a school psychologist told New York mother Patricia Weathers to put her child on Ritalin. However, when she took her child off the drug because he was exhibiting psychotic effects, the school reported her to State child protective services for child abuse. It should be remembered here (from Part 3 of my series) that THE NEW YORK TIMES on September 14, 2004, indicated that top FDA officials acknowledged that antidepressants appeared to lead some children and teenagers to become suicidal.
This governmental mindset that children can be the unwilling objects of medical experiments is nothing new. Remember the government-funded experiments some decades ago where unsuspecting children were fed doses of radiation? And on November 5, 1996, THE NEW YORK TIMES published "Ban on Medical Experiments Without Consent Is Relaxed," which begins with the words: "For the first time in a half century, new Federal regulations allow investigators to enroll patients in some medical research studies without their consent." The article went on to say: "Even the most ardent supporters of the new regulations say they understand the seriousness of what they have done. They have repealed a principle that dates back to the Nuremberg trials of Nazi doctors after World War II."
The Nazis' attitude toward human life was called Vernichtung lebensunwerten Lebens (permission to destroy life devoid of value). And this type of attitude is possible only under a philosophy of moral relativism. In American education, this philosophy began to be promoted in earnest when Benjamin Bloom (mentioned in an earlier Part of this series), et al wrote in TAXONOMY OF EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES, HANDBOOK I: COGNITIVE DOMAIN (1956) that "we recognize the point of view that truth and knowledge are only relative and that there are no hard and fast truths which exist for all times and all places." School has become less and less about teaching students academic knowledge, and more and more about changing their values. In the February 10, 1973, SATURDAY REVIEW OF EDUCATION, NEA president Catherine Barrett wrote: "Dramatic changes in the way we will raise our children in the year 2000 are indicated, particularly in terms of schooling....We will need to recognize that the so-called 'basic skills,' which currently represent nearly the total effort in elementary schools, will be taught in one-quarter of the present school day....When this happens---and it's near---the teacher can rise to his true calling. More than a dispenser of information, the teacher will be a conveyor of values, a philosopher....We will be agents of change." More recently, Edna Copeland (author of a number of books on Attention Deficit Disorder and on Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) remarked that "schools will become the mental health care centers of the future, especially where children are involved."
In terms of values, UNESCO (which the U.S. recently rejoined) has had a philosophy of moral relativism regarding human life since its inception, as in UNESCO: ITS PURPOSE AND ITS PHILOSOPHY (1948), one reads: "Even though it is quite true that any radical eugenic policy will be for many years politically and psychologically impossible, it will be important for UNESCO to see that the eugenic problem is examined with the greatest care, and that the public mind is informed of the issues at stake so that much that is now unthinkable may at least become thinkable."
The "impossibility" of radical thinking about population control "for many years" came to an end in the late 1960s when Dr. Richard L. Day, medical director of Planned Parenthood International from 1965 to 1968, delivered a speech to the Pittsburgh Pediatric Society on March 20, 1969. Dr. Lawrence Dunegan, who was in attendance and heard the speech, recounted that in terms of controlling population, Dr. Day announced: "Everything is in place, and nobody can stop us now....This time we're going to do it right." Dr. Dunegan also remembered that Dr. Day pronounced the following things were planned: contraceptives would be dispensed at schools; abortion would become legal and paid for by tax dollars; homosexuality would be promoted as no longer to be considered abnormal behavior; hard-to-cure diseases would be created; cures for nearly all cancers had been developed, but were being hidden so that the population wouldn't increase; a hard-to-detect means had been developed of inducing heart attacks (assassinations); drug addiction would be promoted (including at school) so the unfit would die; euthanasia would be more accepted as the cost of medical care would intentionally be made burdensomely high; divorce would be made easier; I.D. badges would become more prevalent (eventually implanted under skin, and perhaps a transmitter in dental fillings); all salary payments and purchases would be conducted electronically by computer in one banking system; major world religions (especially Christianity) would have to change into a new world religion, and the churches will help bring it about; more airplanes and rail accidents, as well as building and bridge collapses, would occur to create an atmosphere of instability; terrorism would be used to make people demand international controls; and economic interdependence would help lessen national sovereignty, as people would become citizens of the world.
Note especially that Dr. Day had said the plan was to make us "citizens of the world." That is the exact term U.S. Secretary of Education Rod Paige used on October 3, 2003, in his speech declaring for the Bush administration that the U.S. was pleased to rejoin UNESCO where we could develop common strategies to prepare our children to become "citizens of the world."
And how will all the nations of the world be brought into compliance with the plan? On September 29, 2004, Senator Hillary Clinton (and Rep. Nita Lowey in the U.S. House) introduced S.2862 "Education for All Act of 2004." In a UNESCO news item about the bill, Rep. Lowey is quoted as saying, "This isn't just about education---although that is important---this initiative focuses our attention on a glaring global problem. Today, too many children are either not being educated or are being educated to hate." This anti-hate education sounds laudable until one remembers what the Clinton administration considered a "hate group." The West Virginia REGISTER-HERALD (September 2, 2001) printed an article, "Christians a 'Hate Group'," describing a teaching manual, crafted by former U.S. Attorney-General Janet Reno, which identified "hate mongers" as those who "blame the federal government (and others) for most of this country's problems. Some groups include apocalyptic Christianity in their ideology and believe we are in, or approaching, a period of violence and social turmoil which will precede the Second Coming of Christ."
According to the UNESCO news item, Sen. Clinton's legislation indicates that "Funding will be contingent on countries developing strong national plans to get all children in school that include clear performance targets, systems of monitoring and accountability....(And the legislation) establishes process for developing a comprehensive global strategy that strengthens and builds upon the Education for All Fast Track Initiative, an initiative developed in April 2002 that creates a set of benchmarks to monitor the efficiency and quality of national primary education plans...." This all sounds like the federal "No Child Left Behind Act" gone global !
It should be remembered here that the 1990 World Conference on Education for All was sponsored by UNESCO, UNICEF, the U.N. Development Program and the World Bank. And First Lady Barbara Bush was honorary chair for the first annual conference of the United States Coalition for Education for All in 1991. This latter conference sent out an invitation to participate brochure that made it clear that this initiative was not just about education, but also about "child health, nutrition, cognitive skills, and psycho-social development." And when one looks at the conference report, one reads that "Schools are at the center of the current social and economic transformation....Education will have to instill the qualities of...global thinking in its learners." But don't count on these global leaders properly to educate your child, because in the first sentence of the Postscript to this conference report, they spell the word "convened" incorrectly as "covened."
In addition to using education and mental health to prepare Americans and others to accept the New Age New World Order (see my book NOW IS THE DAWNING OF THE NEW AGE NEW WORLD ORDER), the power elite also uses events to cause people to accept that which they otherwise would not accept. For example, near the end of my book THE GLOBALISTS: THE POWER ELITE EXPOSED, published two months BEFORE the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, I wrote: "At the national level, this conditioning of the public might be brought about via certain crises, such as a terrorist attack....For the sake of peace and security, people may be willing to give up certain of their freedoms to some extent." Sure enough, the very afternoon of the 9/11 attacks, ABC News announced that their poll results showed two-thirds of Americans "say they would sacrifice some personal liberties in support of anti-terrorism efforts." Amazingly fast after the 9/11 attacks, the Bush administration produced "Homeland Security" legislation (sounds somewhat like the February 28, 1933 "Decree for the Protection of the People and the State" signed by German President Paul von Hindenburg after the Reichstag fire, and after which Hitler ruled by what amounted to Executive Orders), which has eroded our freedoms.
More recently in terms of psychologically manipulating people to accept what they otherwise would not tolerate under other conditions, the U.S. had consistently rejected allowing American troops to face international prosecution for war crimes. However, after the photos of Iraqi detainees at Abu Ghraib prison surprisingly became public, Edith Lederer of the Associated Press began her article from the U.N. stating that on June 23, 2004, "the U.S. dropped its attempt to shield American troops from international prosecution of war crimes." This is just one more step toward bringing the U.S. under the authority of the U.N. and the New Age New World Order world socialist government planned for the future.
At this point, those of you reading this Part 4 of a series are probably telling yourselves that you would never submit to the manipulations of the power elite. However, before you become too confident, I would suggest that you reflect upon the words of Dr. James McConnell (professor of psychology at the University of Michigan) in 1966: "I teach a course called The Psychology of Influence, and I begin it by stating categorically that the time has come when, if you give me any normal human being and a couple of weeks,...I can change his behavior from what it is not to whatever you want it to be, if it's physically possible....I can turn him from a Christian into a communist and vice versa....Look, we can do these things. We can control behavior." And I would also suggest that you look at the website for the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office, and check patent 3,951,135 approved April 20, 1976 and titled "Apparatus and method for remotely monitoring and altering brain waves."
Continue to pray for Americans wherever they may be, and keep all children and their future in special prayer. We should remember the words of Brigadier General U.S. Army (Ret.) Andrew J. Gatsis (awarded the Distinguished Service Cross, the Distinguished Service Medal, two Silver Stars and numerous other medals and commendations): "We Americans have fought in many wars to preserve freedom. We did not sacrifice blood and treasure to see our liberty abridged by Federal intrusion into and control of education. This assault on domestic sovereignty is a different kind of war, but make no mistake, it is a war, one which we must not lose."
So what is the solution? It's really very simple. After prayer to God for guidance, Americans who profess to have traditional Judeo-Christian beliefs should organize at the grassroots level to return America to its traditional values. To date, they have refused to do this. Many have 401Ks in pension funds invested in corporations that do business with nations that sponsor terrorists who kill Americans. It's not that these American investors don't care about this, but they don't care enough to organize to change it. If everyone who claimed to have Biblical beliefs organized to end abortion, for example, such killing of babies would quickly end. However, many of these people refuse to organize, and that's the problem. They find at least an hour each evening to watch TV sitcoms, but they can't seem to spend even an hour a month to stop babies from being brutally torn apart. We ignore at our peril Thomas Jefferson's statement of 1781 (engraved on the Jefferson Memorial in Washington, DC) in "Query XVIII" of his NOTES ON THE STATE OF VIRGINIA: "God who gave us life gave us liberty. And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are the Gift of God? That they are not to be violated but with His wrath? Indeed, I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that His justice cannot sleep forever." Americans must unite and organize in this great cause to return to our moral foundations, for as Psalm 11:3 warns: "If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?" We should once again "be as a City on a Hill," in the words of John Winthrop on June 11, 1630. Otherwise, as Winthrop next proclaimed: "If we shall deal falsely with our God in this work we have undertaken and cause Him to withdraw his present help from us, we shall be made a story and a by-word throughout the world."

The key to implementing this is to get key people in key positions of
