MENTAL HEALTH, EDUCATION AND SOCIAL CONTROL
Dennis L. Cuddy, Ph.D.
Concerning mental health screening, perhaps the latest news comes from an Associated Press report that New Jersey doctors will now be required to educate expectant mothers and their families about postpartum depression and to screen new mothers for this disorder under a new law signed on April 13 by Governor Jon Corzine.
Health screenings are an important part of governments' desire to monitor or track people. And according to an article by Rob Stein in THE WASHINGTON POST on January 11 of this year, "New York City is starting to monitor the blood sugar levels of its diabetic residents, marking the first time any government in the United States has begun tracking people with a chronic disease....Lawrence Gostin, who directs the Center for Law and the Public's Health at Georgetown and Johns Hopkins universities, said 'You can imagine it getting to the point where you have a public health worker showing up at your door and asking, "Did you remember to exercise, eat right and take your medication today?"'...Wendy Mariner of Boston University's Schools of Public Health and Law said 'Government concern often shifts to government coercion. Today we're telling people what you should do voluntarily. Tomorrow it may be we're telling you what to do or you'll be penalized.'"
Regarding education, in the last part of this series, I referred to the International Baccalaureate (IB) program. The power elite's efforts to internationalize education has been going on for decades. Just two years after the supposedly conservative President Dwight Eisenhower left office, on July 31, 1962, he was in Stockholm, Sweden, addressing the World Confederation of Organizations of the Teaching Profession, and remarked: "I should like to suggest one final thought....It is the possibility of creating an international school as a new and different kind of clearing house for world thinking and teaching and learning in the vast field of human relations. On the campus of such a college would be gathered an international faculty of scholars whose concern would be objective truth, purged of national and regional bias, hatred and prejudices...."
In the U.S. today, the University of Illinois is planning to increase foreign students to 25% of its student body. And according to THE PHYLLIS SCHLAFLY REPORT (April 2006), University of Texas at Arlington Prof. Jose Gutierrez stated: "We have to eliminate the gringo (whites), and what I mean by that is, if the worst comes to worst, we have got to kill them."
Education has also been used to alter students' values. In Prof. Norman Woelfel's MOULDERS OF THE AMERICAN MIND written in 1933, he wrote: "The younger generation is on its own and the last thing that would interest modern youth is the salvaging of the Christian tradition. The environmental controls which technologists have achieved, and the operations by means of which workers earn their livelihood, need no aid or sanction from God nor any blessing from the church."
The ultimate goal of the power elite is to achieve social control via education and other means in order to bring about a world government. And in order to control people, it would be helpful to the power elite to know who is communicating with whom. In that regard, the first line of an Associated Press story on May 11 titled "Paper Reports NSA Collecting Phone Records" stated: " The government (National Security Agency) is secretly collecting records of ordinary Americans' phone calls in an effort to build a database of every call made within the country."
In Part 27 of this series, I quoted Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) president Richard Haass (Rhodes scholar) as indicating nations "must be prepared to cede some of their sovereignty." When he was director of the Policy Planning Staff at the U.S. State Department under President George W. Bush, he delivered a speech titled "Defining U.S. Foreign Policy in a Post-Post-Cold War World" on April 22, 2002, to the Foreign Policy Association, in which he explained: "There clearly is a consistent body of ideas and policies that guides the Bush Administration's foreign policy....This coherence exists and can be captured by the idea of integration....Integration is about bringing nations together and then building frameworks of cooperation and, where feasible, institutions that reinforce and sustain them even more....Integration reflects not merely a hope for the future, but the emerging reality of the Bush Administration." Once the nations of the world become "integrated" economically and in other ways, it will not be difficult for the power elite to argue that these integrated entities should be managed by a world government.
