Personal Responsibility is A Revolutionary Act
By: Tom Chatham
Personal responsibility in society is diminishing to a point where society is becoming dysfunctional. The healthcare debate is just the latest symptom of this growing insanity.
There is a reason some people are business owners and others spend their lifetime working for them. Owning a business is all about taking responsibility. Most workers do not want any responsibility and avoid it by having a job where they are told what to do in every aspect. They want to show up for work every day and get their paycheck at the end of the week and not have to make any decisions in between.
This lack of responsibility is a result of the propagandized school system. Students are taught to do as they are told and never question anything, especially those in charge. Taking responsibility is all about making decisions. In order to make decisions you first must analyze the problem then devise solutions. In many cases the person must be willing to make some mistakes as part of this process to get the desired result.
The people are being conditioned to fear making mistakes. It is part of the collective mindset that the group must make all decisions. This instills the notion that whatever the group decides is correct and any failure must be due to some other reasons. It is the reason progressives never admit to being wrong about anything.
This decision making and risk taking process is literally being bred out of the general population making them more docile. The fact that government figures want to tell individuals how to raise their children, what insurance to buy, what to eat and even how large a soda they can have is clear evidence of this agenda.
Those in control want docile followers that are averse to taking personal responsibility much less questioning authority. A person willing to take responsibility is a risk taker. Risk takers are willing to go against established rules and change the conditions they live in. Revolutionaries are the ultimate risk takers exercising personal responsibility in the face of government control.
That is why the establishment fears those who take responsibility. These people by their very nature subvert the control of the state and reduce the control officials have over the population.
The slowly evolving mantra is subtle and straight forward. Don’t you worry about it, let us worry about it and we will tell you what to do. The dumbing down of schools is the means to enable this. The lack of knowledge prevents people from analyzing complicated problems and devising solutions. This keeps the general population dumb and under control.
This is why the government does not want you to take responsibility for your own healthcare, food supply, security or economic future. This is the reason for hostility toward small business owners, gun owners and self sufficient types.
To the current government, those who take personal responsibility are a threat to continued government control and must be eliminated by any means possible.
