What hope is there for a civilization governed by delusional maniacs?
The Western world’s big crusade, these days, is to stamp out “hate” and “bullying.” Our administrative class tries to do this by bullying people into submission.
With such a lofty enterprise in hand, our social engineering crowd—politicians, teachers, police, and the usual sordid mix of bureaucrats and self-anointed experts—perform actions which are very difficult to report. Readers think you’re putting them on. The line between news and satire has been just about erased. Case in point…
“Education authorities” in Britain are now keeping permanent records of “racist” or “homophobic” remarks made by children—yes, children—eleven years old and younger: some of them as young as three years old; the thought police are busy in the nursery schools. (Source: “’Racists’ aged THREE: Toddlers among thousands of children accused of bigotry after name-calling,” by Kate Loveys in The Daily Mail, Sept. 14, 2011) The children are deemed to have been guilty of hate crime. A record of the offense will follow each child throughout his entire school career and will be made available to college admissions officers and even employers for the rest of the three-year-old criminal’s life.
No, this is not satire. I’m not just making it up. “Figures… were obtained under the Freedom of Information Act” by a civil liberties group, reports The Daily Mail.
Why are they doing this? In 2002 Britain’s Labour Party government required schools to report “all racial incidents”—the operative word is “all”—to their friendly neighborhood Local Education Authority. The rationale was “to stamp out bullying.”
So that’s the reason they give: but the real reason is that these people are both wicked and insane.
To believe that heavy-handed government action can actually re-make human nature is insane. To want to try to do it is wicked.
Is there a name for a religion characterized by the worship of intractably sinful idiots? Yes, there is. Its name is humanism. Its high priests come along and promise us an earthly paradise if only we put ourselves in their hands and obey them unreservedly. The end result is usually a pile of dead bodies.
Public schools are this religion’s temples. Where else can you find trained, accredited professionals who honestly believe a three-year-old child can be an enemy of the people? And if they don’t honestly believe it, that’s even worse! But in all likelihood, teachers’ union members are perfectly capable of believing such a thing. As for parents who entrust their children’s “education” to such people—well, who can even imagine what they’re thinking?
“Hate” is, to them, intolerable. They hate hate, and anyone who hates must be pummeled into a state of numb compliance. If the previous statement strikes you as illogical, you are obviously not yet ready to be a public school teacher.
It’s too bad they have to break all those eggs—but they’re making an omelet, and they can’t afford to be squeamish. The fact that humanists never get beyond the egg-breaking stage of producing their utopian omelet seems to make no impression on them whatsoever.
Britain is but one nation of the West that has rejected the true God and turned to false ones. And the false gods are cruel. They’re only power-hungry, crack-brained mortal men and women, so they have to be cruel. They pretend to higher wisdom and fly around in private jets, but the glamor always wears off eventually and then they have to stomp on people to keep them in line.
It could be worse in Britain. They could be packing off these homophobic toddlers to re-education camps. They could sentence the parents to labor camps. But at least in Britain the ruling class has learned that it’s better to keep the masses paying taxes instead of just rotting away behind barbed wire. Someone, after all, has to pay for all those jets and limousines—not to mention teacher pensions.
Meanwhile, what’s 30,000 children on a lifelong hate-crime watch list, if it means the final abolition of bullying? What price is too great to pay for a world without poverty, hate, inequality, war, global warming, or trans-fats? “All this can be yours,” says Satan, “if you will only fall down and worship me.”

That’s what Satan always says. And the answer, in the words of Our Lord Jesus Christ, is this:
“Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and Him only shalt thou serve.” (Matthew 4:10)
One last question: why should we care what happens over there in Britain?
Just wait. You won’t have to wait very long before the answer to that question becomes most painfully obvious.
