Schools exist to teach children two things: conformity and submission to authority. Anything else a child learns is completely incidental. This is why bullying persists. Forcing children to go to school and be around bullies is part of training them to believe they have to submit to horrible people for the rest of their life.

Government intrusion tomorrow
Nov 28th, 2010 by Ken Hagler

A few days ago I found the notice on the left in the photo above in my apartment building. The notice states that someone from the local government will be conducting an illegal search of my apartment building tomorrow. This isn’t the first time something like this has happened. About ten years ago, a similar notice appeared and I took the day off from work to keep the “inspector” from getting into my apartment without a search warrant–which, naturally, he didn’t have. After a bit of the expected veiled threats and attempts at intimidation and trickery that inspector gave up and left, and I’m hoping that the one tomorrow will go as well.

The two pages of Korean text next to the notice are a translation of the Bill of Rights, with the Fourth Amendment highlighted. I found this on the website of a civil rights organization called Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership, which has translations of the Bill of Rights into many different languages. Most of my neighbors were born in Korea, and many speak no English, so I figured it was likely they wouldn’t be aware that they have the right to refuse warrantless searches of their homes. Hopefully reading the translation of the relevant US law will help at least some of them stand up for themselves and their liberty.

Update: This time around the inspector took “get a warrant” quickly and without making a fuss.

Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add ‘within the limits of the law,’ because law is often but the tyrant’s will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual.

If only they had to obey their own laws

How many federal laws would I be breaking…. …if I suggested that the world would be a better, cleaner place if this person and all his sycophants choked to death on cans of caffeinated alcohol?

I note that Sch**er adds a nice incongruous touch:

Let This Serve as a Warning to Anyone Who Tries to Peddle Dangerous Beverages to Our Kids, Do it, And We Will Shut You Down

[The Ultimate Answer to Kings]

Naturally I don’t spend much time in government buildings, but I know that both prisons public schools and courthouses have drinking fountains. I don’t think there’s any beverage on Earth that’s killed more people than water…
