Some Thoughts About our Loss of Self-Reliance


I’ve been thinking a lot about this universal healthcare plan and while I definitely think it’s all part of a push toward a one world government, I think there is more to it than that. Here are some things to think about…

– In general, people want access to education. Desensitization and training of our children began in earnest through the public school system starting in the mid-1800s.

– People really want their children to be healthy so they willingly submitted to vaccinations when they were first introduced. As more evidence has come out about the negative side effects of vaccines, it has become increasingly difficult for parents to opt out. (Consider the fact that vaccinations are required for school attendance and many places are denying waivers – for whatever reason, including religious objection.)

– Most people would take advantage of an opportunity to make something “easier” and while there are many reasons that we’ve moved from home and locally-grown foods, it could largely be boiled down to the fact that people have become lazy. In our society, people have largely forgotten how to obtain food on their own. Since people have to eat, this loss of knowledge translates to a loss of power – the power over one’s ability to make choices for one’s self. Look at Hurricane Katrina and other natural disasters in recent years for an example. People NEEDED the government to step in and provide food and water as they had made no provision for themselves. Even in abuse and hostage situations, most people will succumb to their captors’ wishes if they are hungry enough.

– The majority of people in our society largely see access to healthcare as a right rather than a privilege. A hundred or more years ago, people were thankful for their doctors and they only went to the doctor when there was a problem that they couldn’t manage through home remedies. Today people go to the doctor for everything from “someone to talk to” and smashed fingers to major medical crises. The problem with this is that we have lost much of the ability to treat our own problems and we’ve become so dependent on others to provide our healthcare that people seem ready to jump on the bandwagon of universal healthcare.

Could all this reliance on someone else to provide for our needs lead to a beautiful, peaceful one-world society or possibly other more dire consequences?

Here is a link to a blog entry I wrote following some about the universal healthcare plan in particular. I thought you might find some particular facts very interesting. http://thehomeschoollady.blogspot.com/2009/06/will-universal-healthcare-plan-require.html
