We have seen all four or these strategies implemented in Western Europe and the United States. A welfare state and safety net system has and will attract undesirables from outside the borders of the implementing nation. A welfare state and safety net system will also lead citizens of the implementing nation to believe that they are entitled to these benefits. Invariably these citizens will place the reason for their plight on others and will not take personal responsibility for their current situation. This is a basic difference between Individualist and Collectivists. Individualists understand they are responsible for their decisions and circumstances and take personal responsibility. The Collectivists do not take personal responsibility.
One of the reasons the Collectivists must control the school system is so accurate history is not taught. Many wise people over the years have described the inevitable result of the Collectivists policy. In the United States, our Children are taught, for instance, that Franklin Roosevelt was a great president. These children are indoctrinated to believe it was Roosevelt’s welfare state and safety net system mentality that brought the United States out of the great depression. An accurate reading of history reveals exactly the opposite.
Our students are also taught that Roosevelt was a Great War president. Exactly the opposite is true. It is documented that Roosevelt prolonged the war in order to enable Stalin to be in a better position to control Eastern Europe after the War. Roosevelt did this in many ways but the two glaring ways were; he refused to listen to the anti-Hitler Germans who wanted assistance to get rid of Hitler and negotiate for a peace that would not have necessarily an unconditional surrender, and Roosevelt supported Stalin’s demand that a front be started in France as opposed to continuing the already begun movement from the South into Europe.
What the Collectivists do not want taught and discussed are such things as these insightful and inevitable results of Collectivists policies by great minds of the past. Here are a few of the warnings against the policies being implemented today in the United States by the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) and supported by many of the Republican Establishment solely for political purposes.
“The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.” Thomas Jefferson`
“When the people find that they can vote themselves money that will herald the end of the republic.” Benjamin Franklin
“A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the world's greatest civilizations has been 200 years. These nations have progressed through this sequence: From bondage to spiritual faith; from spiritual faith to great courage; from courage to liberty; from liberty to abundance; from abundance to selfishness; from selfishness to apathy; from apathy to dependence; from dependence back into bondage.”
― Alexander Fraser Tytler was a Scottish advocate, judge, writer and historian who served as Professor of Universal History, and Greek and Roman Antiquities at the University of Edinburgh. He was born in 1747 and died in 1813.
Below is a result of the Collectivist movement in France that reveals the results of a welfare state, a border-less country, people blaming others for their plight, and the an entitled people. Note how many similarities there are in this story to things that are happening in the United States.
The Porte de Le Chapelle migrant camp is the largest outdoor makeshift camp in the French capital and is home to several hundred migrants, most of whom come from African countries like Sudan, Eritrea, and Nigeria. A reporter spoke to several of the migrants at the camp, and all of them blamed the French government and Europe for their situation, demanding documentation and access to welfare.
Rolando, 25, said he had only come to Paris two months ago through West Africa and Libya taking a six-day sea voyage to eventually land in Italy. Wearing a Lonsdale tracksuit, the young Nigerian said he had taken a six-month course in international relations and wanted to start a family in France. He said fighting between migrants was normal. Last month, a mass brawl broke out during food distribution at the camp involving 50 migrants which ended with one man being seriously injured, Rolando recalled.
Rolando said he didn’t like the French people, saying: “They prefer seeing us on the streets suffering. I observe people passing by, whenever they gazed at us they would be smiling! As if they are happy seeing us suffering, you understand?”
He went on to say: “We blame them, for what they did to Africa! Let’s assume that they did not spoil our country, you wouldn’t have seen me here.”
According to Rolando, the terrorist organizations attacking his country like Boko Haram were created by the British spy agency MI6. “Our generation are smarter. A white man cannot come and deceive me,” he said.
Many of the migrants said they were hungry, though charities like the group Utopia 56 often deliver food to the camps in Paris and elsewhere in France. When one 32-year-old was asked about these pro-migrant NGOs, he said: “They are bullshit. They deliver water and you know. We don’t need nothing,” and said he wanted documents from the government instead.
If you change the names and location, we can hear these same things being said in the United States from the current entitled illegals to the Collectivist created entitled; nothing is my responsibility, my situation is because of everybody else, and you must give me more.
Perhaps our children should have been taught what and why Jefferson, Franklin, Tytler, and so many other wise people told us that freedom can only survive when the principles of Individualists prevail; which are the habit or principle of being independent and self-reliant, and favoring freedom of action for individuals over collective or state control.
