For those of us who love liberty and freedom, who believe that each person owns himself, who hold the idea that a person can do whatever he wishes with his life and property as long as he does not infringe on the rights of another person or his property, we find ourselves beset on all sides by a State that is oppressive of our rights and the most violent and consistent aggressor against life and property.

The State, media, and government run schools are all working to teach our children a near blind obedience to government and its agents.

In an effort to combat all the State propaganda and ensure my children receive a more enlightened education, I began recording short podcast type lessons for them. The lessons are all designed to be about 5 minutes long and to teach the ideas of liberty in a language they can understand.

I'm posting these lessons online so that others who might find them useful can share them with their own children.

Statism is the national religion.

One of the principles we all learn about America is that the government is not supposed to interfere with religion. Since the government isn't allowed to interfere with religion, it has created it's own religion, called Statism. Statism is the tool the government uses to trick the people into worshiping the state. It is the belief by the people that the State can keep them safe, provide for them, and create a righteous society for them. Statism is a very clever scheme created by the government. Most people learn to worship the State but are totally unaware of it.
Public schools, which are run by the government, are the place where people learn to worship the State. Because people grow up learning Statism from the time they enter kindergarten, it just seems like it is a natural and normal part of life. A catechism (pronounced cat-a-kism)is the method used to teach people about the Christian religion. Public schools are where the catechism of Statism is taught. It's where people learn to pledge allegiance to the flag, learn to stand when the American flag is presented, learn to respectfully place their hand over their heart when reciting the pledge, learn to sing the national anthem, where people are taught that soldiers are heroes, that America is "number 1," that you should obey all of government's rules, that taxes are good, and that police are your friend. Often there are pictures of political leaders on the walls in classes, just like there would be pictures of religious people in a church. There are civics courses taught where people learn to be good American citizens. Children are taught about the national idols such as the Statue of Liberty and Mount Rushmore. Holidays are celebrated that teach the greatness of the State such as Flag Day and President's Day.
After 13 years of education in a government run school, is it any surprise to you that most Americans worship the State like Christians worship Jesus and Muslims revere Mohammad? The difference is that when people go to church, they are aware they are learning about religion, and they are making the choice to do so. When people learn Statism, they are doing so because they are forced to and without even knowing they are being taught to revere the State as a god.
