Only In America?

Below is a list from a document created many years ago. In red italics is the layman's terms translation for those of us who are not graduates of Harvard Law School.

1. We demand an expansion on a large scale of old age welfare. This is known today as Medicare and Social Security.

2. We demand the creation of a healthy middle class and its conservation, immediate communalization of the great warehouses and their being leased at low cost to small firms, the utmost consideration of all small firms in contracts with the State, county or municipality. Many politicians talk about helping the middle class....sounds good enough. Leasing at low cost....also sounds good. Government contracts....we see this every day in America....the last part sounds good too.

3. The state is to be responsible for a fundamental reconstruction of our whole national education program, to enable every capable and industrious citizen to obtain higher education and subsequently introduction into leading positions. The plans of instruction of all educational institutions are to conform with the experiences of practical life. The comprehension of the concept of the State must be striven for by the school as early as the beginning of understanding. We demand the education at the expense of the State of outstanding intellectually gifted children of poor parents without consideration of position or profession. This is known today as public schools. Everyone should go to college. Everyone should conform to mainstream society. Education should be as early as possible, hence we have preschool. There should be financial aid for poor kids.

4. The State is to care for the elevating national health by protecting the mother and child, by outlawing child-labor, by the encouragement of physical fitness, by means of the legal establishment of a gymnastic and sport obligation, by the utmost support of all organizations concerned with the physical instruction of the young. The government should have control over healthcare. Michelle Obama is concerned about kids' physical fitness and obesity, so students are required to have physical education.

5. ....A lasting recovery of our nation can only succeed from within on the framework: The good of the state before the good of the individual. Submit to the government for the good of society. Individualism is dead.

I know what you must be thinking. Social Security, Medicare, government business contracts, public schools, financial aid, government healthcare, government interference on physical fitness and obesity, and the minimalization of the individual.

All of these points must have been written in an attempt to establish a new country...perhaps expertly penned by Thomas Jefferson or Thomas Paine or James Madison. Maybe these points were written in an attempt to strengthen a political party...perhaps Ronald Reagan or Franklin Roosevelt wrote them.

They must have been written by a very articulate, very intelligent, and very ambitious person who became very well known worldwide, thanks to these words. Words that envision a society where the government increasingly has more responsibility, more control over our lives, and individuals have less freedom, less individualism, and less money. All of this, of course, is in the name of "democracy" and for "the greater good". Words that envision a society that is improved at the expense of liberty. Words that may have preceded the American Revolution, The Union defeat of the Confederacy, or perhaps the New Deal, 1960s Democrats, or Obama's Hope And Change.

Indeed, they were written for the establishment of a new political party and for the establishment of a new nation.

These five declarations were written by a 31-year-old man of incredible intelligence, significant ambition, and unparalleled communication skills.
