We as a society, a human race, a culture look for ways to belong. We have traditional hairstyles, clothing styles, mannerisms and more. In the human need to feel connected we have infused in our DNA conformity. Most often we do not want to be the one to cause a scene or upset the status quo until it is a major event that takes to the streets.
This conformity starts at a very young age, parents guide you to right and wrong, then you are introduce to school and the box of conformity starts to close in even further. By the time you reach adulthood you have been formed, molded, directed and guided in the direction that others have deemed best for you, most often questioning very little.
Each year when school starts I get a barrage of papers sent home to read and sign. There are “standard policies”, rules, and conformity required and each year I see the box get smaller. In the beginning it is hair cut, length of shorts, t-shirt logos.
Then it moves to changing government laws that roll together religious exemption and conscientious objector into one category and the state requiring you to register with them if you do not want your child immunized for other than medical reason.
In the state of Texas this form is filled out on the government site and then requires a mailing address for it to be sent to. The site states there is no tracking for this document, but when the document arrives each copy is incrementally numbered. This document now has to reside in your child’s school records, many of which are now digitized into a government education recording system.
Your First Amendment Right has now been taken away in this instance because you are no longer basing your stand on your religious correlation you are now just a conscientious objector rolled into the big pot of the general population.
This year the “New Form” comes home, the war on drugs form, which is now a local government imposed policy to onsite drug testing. It is listed as random and reasonable suspicion drug testing, and if your child refuses it is deemed an “automatic positive”. In the school my son attends this is done at random each month with a computer generated list of student ID numbers. A note is sent home stating that this is school policy and you must sign it for your child to participate in elective or after school classes.
What happened to our Fourth Amendment Right? Isn’t reasonable cause required?
By the time our young people reach adulthood they are so accustomed to going with the flow, doing what everyone else does, not making waves that when it comes time for them to vote for our government leaders, make educated decisions on policies and become parents themselves they just surrender to the movement at hand.
Is this what you envisioned for yourself? Is this what you want for your future as the boomers stop booming and the next generations step in? It is time for each of us to pay attention, rattle the cages and speak up against the imprisonment that is gradually taking place.
It is important to note that the US Military operates Guantanamo Bay Detention Camp off of US soil where it currently detains people who have not been formally charged with a crime nor has enough evidence against them to legally keep them detained in the U.S. When we allow injustice to happen with one it will eventually happen to us if we do not stand up at the start.
It reminds me of corporate layoffs. When it is happening to someone else people put their head down an look the other way, but eventually the line gets shorter and it doesn’t feel so good when it’s not the other guy.
