I’ve been battling the compulsory system since 1962. And lo these many years later have watched it all go from bad to worse. I’ve written many articles on public schooling and immunizations.

The President of Rampart College, Robert LeFevre, autographed his book “This Bread is Mine” with this statement; “To Anne who teaches as she learns.”

I took up the cause of attempts to enlighten about the public school system, because of my love for “America the Beautiful,” love of Freedom, and deep concern for innocent children indoctrinated by the system. It all began back in 1962, because of my experiences with my own children in the system.

Back then in 1962, I really did not understand the system. However there was much I did not like, and my ignorance led me to think I could do something to improve the system. I soon discovered my objections, and attempts to improve, set myself up to be abused by the powers that be who operate the system, and some in the news media who support it. I have written my story in previous articles, but briefly it began while checking my children’s homework and reading their textbooks and discovering the tenets of socialism were taught in the textbooks.

I called a few friends and expressed my concerns and suggested we form a textbook committee to do school book reviews and present to the State Textbook commission in Carson City, Nevada. My committee consisted of one local college teacher, the local head of the DAR; the owner of the local FM radio station, and three others. Over a period of time we wrote reviews on textbooks, prepared to present them to the textbook committee. Our efforts were reported in local newspaper. Local communist-leaning students in the local college objected.

The night before our plans to appear before the textbook commitee, each person called and cancelled their appearance and tried to talk me out of going, because this group of leftist students planned on being there to object. I said I must go. The next morning I drove alone from Reno to Carson City and was met at the entrance to the committe hearings by a group of hecklers as I entered the building. I presented our findings and left. Nothing was changed in the textbooks.

Afterwards my young son was so mis-treated in the school, I removed him and drove 20 miles from Stead AFB into a private school in Reno. Frequently in below-zero weather behind a half-empty school bus, as he was not allowed to ride to a private school.

From Reno we were re-assigned to Sewart Airbase in Smyrna, Tennessee, where I encountered even worse conditions in that school. A story I have told in detail in previous articles. Much later moving to the Atlanta area, where I refused vaccination of another son starting first grade, and all I encountered, resulting in my filing a lawsuit in federal court, I have previously described.

Consequently from 1962 until my second son graduated in the eighties, I had a lot of experiences with public schools, and myself and my children endured substantial abuse because I objected to so much, and kept thinking I could change things for the better.

Eventually realizing there was nothing I nor any one else could do to improve the schools because it was an immoral system of thievery.

During those years battling with the public school system, I was very involved in the Study of The Philosophy of Freedom. Plus during those times my husband was an Air Force pilot who had fought in three wars for Freedom of this country.

As a result of my understanding of freedom, over 20 years as a military wife, and years of subjection to the public school system, I faced the reality, something was very wrong in my country, and was rapidly sliding down the road of bondage of the system of socialism, departing from the Freedom of our founding fathers. And began wondering why.

A rather shocking realization that my husband had not been fighting for Freedom of this country but rather nation building, topped by my discovery, all my efforts to improve the schools system had been for nothing, and had watched the system go from bad to worse. These two things were totally incommensurate with my understanding of the meaning of Freedom. The real shocker for me, believing everyone desired freedom, was when I realized how wrong I had been. And the majority had bought into the system of socialism. Not only did they prefer that system over Freedom, they deliberately marched to the polls and voted into power those elected who would further replace the Principles upon which this nation was founded, with a different system than that which our founding fathers fought and died for.

It was very difficult for me to admit to myself, I was very much in the minority, standing up for Freedom, and realizing the majority stood for socialism. Most without even realizing it.

Then I began thinking, checking, listening, sorting and investigating as to how this all evolved. Without a shot being fired my beloved country had changed from one of individual Freedom, thriving on the Free-enterprising system of Capitalism, to a different system of the bondage of socialism which my grandchildren would live under.

I thought about Eva Peron, the wife of the dictator who ruled over a Socialist country, portrayed as singing the song “Don’t Cry for Me Argentina.” And I felt like crying over America the beautiful.

I have one of those inquiring minds, and I searched for answers as to how we in this country have arrived at this state of Socialism, when I put two and two together. The school system I had fought to change and the wars my husband had fought for Freedom of this country. It occured to me, we have arrived at this condition because it has been ingrained in young minds via 12 years of compulsory schooling, which itself is a socialistic system.

We have lost Freedom and departed from the original principles this nation was founded upon by design. A system of schooling designed to indoctrinate into the basic tenets of socialism. A compulsory system not designed to educate but indoctrinate. It’s all so obvious to me as I sit here today.

A well organized plan which began with Horace Mann, and promoted by all his followers, who lust for power over others. Listening to so many who love President Obama and his policies and others who curse him, as I see it he’s not the cause, but arrived on the scene to reap the harvest of all the pre-planning of those before his time. And that is specifically, the take-over of this country, reduced from one of Freedom to one of bondage. There’s nothing accidental about it. It has all been pre-planned and implemented via the compulsory school system.

If anyone has the audacity to doubt the veracity of precisely how it all came about, read a more detailed account in a book titled “The Twelve Year Sentence.” A radical view of the compulsory school system edited by William Rickenbacker. He outlines concrete examples of precisely how it all happened and why. He states: “The individual must see the State as something greater than himself, and must learn to sacrifice himself for the good of the Whole.” Ingrained in the teachings of compulsory public schools. Children are deprived of an education in favor of indoctrination in the tenets of socialism.

There are still a few die-hards who value Freedom over the authority of the State, but are in the minority, and most of those have no inkling as to why and how we arrived at the conditions we face today. Buy the book, “The Twelve-Year Sentence,” not only read but study it to understand who we are and where we are.

All those in Washington are in bed together, make no mistake about that, and no change will ever come from the top down, but any hope for any possibility of that system that provided the greatest good for the greatest number, can only be realized from the bottom up.

Predictably, things will get worse before they ever get better. Which may be generations away.

As for myself, one who loves and values freedom, all I can do is say like MacBeth, “out dammed spot,” realizing there’s nothing I can do to change the direction were going. I might be able to say, at least I could stop voting, but I don’t vote, and view voting as “disguised coercion.” And Freedom is absence of coercion.

My explanation of where we are and how we got here, may be a difficult pill for most to swallow. It was for me when I first discovered it, but truth is that which is and the absence of a lie. And truth always has a strange ring to it.

Good luck to any reader who hears the strange ring loud enough to read and learn more.
