bullying

Bullying is the use of force to get one's own way, typically for a selfish purpose at at the expense of others. Censorship is a type of bullying. A person who perpetrates bullying is known as a bully.

Increasingly liberals try to pass anti-bullying laws as a way of censoring conservative speech and activities, such as quoting from the Bible that criticize homosexuality or rough physical activities such as football. Passage and enforcement of anti-bullying laws is a liberal way to increase government control to the point where people, even children, need to constantly worry about whether Big Brother government approves of what they say or do.

In college and at many public schools, bullying takes the form of intimidating students to prevent them from expressing or defending their conservative views. Teachers<ref>See professor values.</ref> and liberal students can use liberal grading to bully students into accepting liberal positions or avoiding conservative ones in classroom discussions and on papers and exams. Statements such as “support for same-sex marriage increases with a higher level of education” is an attempt to bully opponents by embarrassing them or calling them stupid.

Even the Office of the President, sometimes benevolently referred to as “the bully pulpit” to promote social change without government mandates, was misused to bully and impugn collectively the major opposition party in the United States when President Barack Hussein Obama openly accused the Republican Party of seditious acts by “encouraging our enemies”.<ref>Obama Lashes Republicans as Government Reopens, October 17, 2013, By DAVID ESPO AP. abcnews.</ref>

Bullying can be used to punish students in or outside of class for doing or saying something that is politically incorrect. An example of classroom bullying is for students to ostracize a fellow student based on a viewpoint expressed by that student.

Bullying by Children

Children in public schools are not encouraged to bully other, weaker children, and many schools have strict rules preventing bullying. Those who do choose to break the rules can take the form of teasing, hitting, extortion (“Give me your lunch money”), and so on. Children who engage in this type of bullying tend to do so as means of acting out due to problems in their home lives, such as parental abuse or being in poverty.

Educators have been known to countenance the practice by saying that as kids grow up, they simply must learn to deal with bullies.<ref>://www.crimeprevention.gov.au/agd/WWW/rwpattach.nsf/VAP/(1E76C1D5D1A37992F0B0C1C4DB87942E)~Bullying+Parents.pdf/$file/Bullying+Parents.pdf </ref> The implication is that they can learn this on their own, while academic subjects such as arithmetic and English must be learned from books and teachers.

It is commonly said that bullying is “simply part of growing up” or part of “the rough and tumble of childhood.”<ref>://www.police.govt.nz/service/yes/nobully/bully_info.html</ref>

  • Most students who are bullied either do not report the bullying to adults, or they wait a very long time before doing so. The reasons include feelings of shame, fear of retaliation for reporting, and fear that adults cannot or will not protect the victim in the settings where bullying usually takes place.
  • Many teachers and parents tell children not to “tattle,” and to resolve their problems themselves.<ref name=“lfcc”>://www.lfcc.on.ca/bully.htm</ref>

Many academic approaches go out of their way not to mention using any kind of adult force (let alone punishment) to stop bullies. One Canadian program is an exception:

:If the bullies will not change their behavior, despite concerted efforts by school personnel, the bullies, and not the victims, should be the ones who are removed from the class or school, or transferred to another program. Consequences for the perpetrators will be of considerable interest to all students, and will set the tone for future situations.<ref name=“lfcc” />

Response and Prevention of Bullying

Besides telling an adult, there are other things kids can do to stop themselves from being bullied or prevent bullying in the first place. They include but are not limited to

  1. Learning self defense and not being afraid to fight back if provoked.
  2. Gathering up a large posse of friends to help defend yourself.
  3. Lifting weights and taking protein supplements to get bigger (this is only appropriate for high school students, before the age of 14 or 15, kids usually don't have enough testosterone to build muscle and weight training before 14 can be dangerous).
  4. Sticking up for smaller, younger, and weaker kids. This sends a message that bullying will not be tolerated.
  5. Tolerance of those who are different.
  6. Teachers taking a more proactive role and nipping bullying in the bud when it crops up.
  7. Ridiculing and shunning those who repeatedly engage in bullying.
  8. Longer suspensions and expulsions, or in extreme cases, criminal charges for the worst offenders.
  9. Return of classroom prayer and teaching of proper morals and why bullying is inherently evil and wrong.
  10. Parents punishing children who bully others.
  11. Staying active and participating in sports (team or individual) and/or martial arts. Athletic and strong children are much less likely to be bullied.
  12. Parents teaching kids proper social skills so they are less likely to be bullied.

Liberalism can refer to a number of political philosophies derived from Classical liberalism. In this article, the American political platform referred to as “liberal” within the United States is contrasted with other meanings of the word, particularly in Europe and in other parliamentary democratic systems.

  • “Whereas Liberalism is the triumph of emotion over reason (as defined historically), Conservatism is an applied intellectual process; based on observation, deduction, and the study of provable historical fact.” - Sandy Stringfellow<ref>Sandy Stringfellow</ref>
  • Cal Thomas said, “One of liberalism's many problems is that once an idea or program is proved wrong and unworkable, liberals rarely acknowledge their mistake and examine the root cause of their error so they don't repeat it.”<ref>Cal Thomas</ref>
  • Fred Seigel wrote, “Liberalism has become an ugly blend of sanctimony, self-interest, and social connections.” <ref>Fred Seigel</ref>
  • :A distinguishing element of liberalism has been its admiration of autocratic leaders and this explains its embrace of dictators from the likes of the German Kaiser, Lenin and Stalin, through to men like Fidel Castro and his murderous sidekick, Ernesto “Che” Guevera.<ref>The Curse of Liberalism Alan Caruba - September 9, 2013</ref>
  • Michael Savage wrote, “As much as the Left fashions themselves as being progressive, they’re not. In reality, today’s leftist movement is made in much the same way as a sausage—it’s a blend of fascist, Communist, and socialist ideologies from twentieth-century Europe, with a pinch of Nazism, all ground together, yet retaining the flavor of its various parts.”<ref>Quote from ''Liberalism is a Mental Disorder'' by Michael Savage</ref>

Since the definition of liberalism often – but not always – means to advocate for and be open to change, its specific reference depends on specified context. For instance, American liberalism has changed drastically since the 1960s, with liberals then (see: John F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr.) advocating for personal responsibility and true liberty, in sharp contrast to modern-day liberals, being very close to leftists, denounce and devalue.

United States

In the U.S. the word liberal is usually used to describe the platform espoused by the Democrat Party, that is, support of social welfare systems, redistribution of wealth, and government regulation of the economy - combined with a certain brand of individual libertarianism, emphasizing social equality, and (to a certain extent, these days increasingly radical) rejection of traditional Judeo-Christian standards of morality as a proper justification for law.

The economic aspects of this ideology are to a large extent a product of the New Deal policies of the Great Depression era, as well as Lyndon B. Johnson's “Great Society.” It also should be noted that a good portion of the Liberal economic philosophy has certain roots in the teachings of Karl Marx, such as the overall focus on social equality and the outrageous rejection of the Judeo-Christian morals. It should be noted, however, that Liberals are not pureblood Communists: Unlike their redder brethren, Liberals are far more insidious and dangerous, as they have successfully infiltrated the American society and now threaten the American way of life.

The Democrat Party's idea of social liberty and equality, though, came much later, partly as a result of the civil rights and counterculture movements of the late 20th century. It continues to be fueled by various youth movements and the interests of numerous special interest groups.

Europe and elsewhere

In Europe, liberalism refers to a political position that leans toward greater individual liberties and less government intervention in general. In short, this is the philosophy closest to classical liberalism, and is commonly referred to in the United States as libertarianism. In Europe and elsewhere, then, the opposite of liberalism is not conservatism, but authoritarianism.

Because of this, the terms “conservative liberalism” and “liberal conservatism”, which are seen as contradictory in the U.S., are not so in Europe. “Conservative liberalism” simply refers to a less radical libertarian philosophy, and is often referred to as “law-and-order liberalism.” Liberal conservatism is simply a variant of conservatism willing to allow for individual liberties, and, in a way, describes the ideology of the American Republican Party. Such examples of this obvious line of thought include the civil rights movement, when the Republican Party (and a few southern Democrats) just wanted to maintain the African American's right to have the choice of forced segregation.

The Liberal Party of Australia is the right-leaning party, in opposition to the liberal Labor Party, and is not to be confused with liberalism as an ideology.

Nazism and socialism

For more information please see: Nazism and socialism, Gun Control in Nazi Germany

was the National Socialist German Workers' Party (Nazi Party), led by Social Darwinist Adolf Hitler.<ref>http://mises.org/daily/1937</ref><ref>https://creation.com/darwinism-and-the-nazi-race-holocaust</ref><ref>http://www.hourofthetime.com/socialist.htm</ref> ]] The Ludwig von Mises Institute declares:

There is debate about the similarities between Nazism and socialism. Despite whether Nazism is socialist or not, they, with the help of general improvement of economic conditions in Europe, helped propel Germany out of the Great Depression with their economic policy.<ref>http://www.nazism.net/about/economic_practice</ref>

Liberalism today demands heavy progressive and graduated income taxes.
3 “Abolition of all rights of inheritance.” “That all unearned income, and all income that does not arise from work, be abolished.” Liberalism today demands a “death tax” on anyone inheriting an estate.
4 “Centralisation of credit in the hands of the state, by means of a national bank with State capital and an exclusive monopoly.” “We demand the nationalization of all trusts.” Central control of the financial system.
5 “Centralisation of the means of communication and transport in the hands of the State.” “We demand that there be a legal campaign against those who propagate deliberate political lies and disseminate them through the press…editors and their assistants on newspapers published in the German language shall be German citizens…Non-German newspapers shall only be published with the express permission of the State…the punishment for transgressing this law be the immediate suppression of the newspaper…” Central control of the press. Liberals today demand control or suppression of talk radio and Fox News.
6 “Free education for all children in public schools. Abolition of children’s factory labour in its present form. Combination of education with industrial production, &c, &c.” “In order to make it possible for every capable and industrious German to obtain higher education, and thus the opportunity to reach into positions of leadership, the State must assume the responsibility of organizing thoroughly the entire cultural system of the people. The curricula of all educational establishments shall be adapted to practical life. The conception of the State Idea (science of citizenship) must be taught in the schools from the very beginning. We demand that specially talented children of poor parents, whatever their station or occupation, be educated at the expense of the State. ” Central control of education, with an emphasis on doing things their way. Liberals today are doing things their way in our schools.
