Brown Badman Balls: The Thought Police

(Original Publication on: 10/10/09)

As a home educating parent, there have been a number of concerns which I had been hesitant to rush into writing a blog about, as most of it was a drama in the unfolding...

...seemed absurdly surreal...

...and I really wasn't sure it would ever reach the proposterous heights it now has!

...but I can contain it no longer...

I just can't allow myself to be
dragged down into the murky depths of a draconian State dictatorship by the
'powers-that-be' & their snivelling cronies
without putting up a
damned HARD FIGHT!

Mr. Balls, you can take your Mr. Bad-man, wrap him in that web of lies review he wrote FOR you... And shove them both where the sun don't shine...

...& that goes too for the 'selective committee', the DCSF, your pathetic political party & any attempts you make to restrict home educating families rights & liberties...

The answer is "NO!"

I was heartened by this video which details exactly what most Home Educating families attitude toward the 'Review of Elective Home Education in England by Graham Badman' is...

...that it is a spurious piece of fiction designed to control freethinking individuals who are resistant to this tyrannical governments increasing stranglehold on our liberty!

While watching this video I saw a comment left by a person who was, as many are, obviously unfamiliar with the concept of Home Education & its specifics & just couldn't understand why Home Education shouldn't be 'Quality controlled' & parents subjected to examination by & registration with 'The State' as suitable to raise their own children, before being allowed to do so...

I think I need to clarify the matter...

"Dear [Insert Name of anyone who hasn't woken up to this issue yet]... before all of us HE'ers were subjected to the dirty tricks campaign of 'The Bad man' & 'The Governments Balls' we too might have been just as naively wishful as you in thinking that our 'powers-that-be' would only impose laws that were fair... & just... & for the greater good of us all.... cast with an even & paternally gentle hand....

...WAKE UP! Your government is raping you!!!(& they're disguising it as 'child protection'!)

"The state must declare the child to be the most precious treasure of the people. As long as the government is perceived as working for the benefit of the
children, the people will happily endure almost any curtailment of
liberty and almost any deprivation."

from 'Mein Kampf'

Some kids will always be neglected by the adults that should be caring for them,
or may not get as good an education provided to them as they deserve...

...just as some people will always want to break into your house &
steal your stuff, drive cars over the alcohol limit, lie about statistics to meet their own ends...
etc, etc, etc.... there just ARE people out there who will do 'wrong'
things sometimes
... sometimes you or I could be one of them....

...that doesn't mean that we should all

and so on & so on...

"It was terribly dangerous to let your thoughts wander when you were in any public place or within range of a telescreen. The smallest thing could give you away. A nervous tic, an unconscious look of anxiety, a habit of muttering to yourself--anything that carried with it the suggestion of abnormality, of having something to hide. In any case, to wear an improper expression on your face...; was itself a punishable offense. There was even a word for it in Newspeak: 'facecrime'..."
- George Orwell, 1984, Book 1, Chapter 5

THAT is 1984! That is Nazi germany!

That is attempting to make us fit to one mould, so that we can be measured & overseen for 'our own good' and this law that they are trying to force upon us will not just apply to HE'ers...

It is just another tool in the governments agenda of social control from cradle to grave... if not before!...

"But what about 'Quality control'?" you say...

There ARE laws in place already that can be used to deal with parents who a Local Education Authority, or any concerned member of society, feels is not providing education or appropriate care for their child.

The reason kids slip through the net that IS already in place is because those laws are often not understood, or correctly applied, by those who are being paid to do so!...

and because, unfortunately, some will always slip through the net.

The reality of life is that there are bad people out there & some of them are very evil.... (& SOME OF THEM ARE IN OFFICIAL POSITIONS OF POWER OVER YOU & YOUR FAMILY RIGHT NOW!)

Please believe me when I explain to you that this AGENDA DRIVEN PROPAGANDIST HATE CAMPAIGN AGAINST HOME EDUCATORS has proven itself again and again as A COMPLETE RED HERRING...

This agenda has been pushed forward by painting HE as a haven for neglect & abuse
to occur unless tight guidelines & careful monitoring are used and
have claimed to have the figures to back this up...

However, in truth, the statistics prove the opposite of what the Badman review suggests.

Home Education is HISTORICALLY & STATISTICALLY proven to be one of the most positive ways of bringing up bright & happy children who go on to be successful & contented adults... thats why many Home Edders have, or still do work within education or child services but will not risk putting their own child through the power crazy Neu Liebour workhouses they want to force our kids

"Day by day and almost minute by minute the past was brought up to
In this way every prediction made by the Party could be shown by
documentary evidence to have been correct; nor was any item of news, or
any expression of opinion, which conflicted with the needs of the
moment, ever allowed to remain on record. All history was a palimpsest,
scraped clean and reinscribed exactly as often as was necessary." - George Orwell, 1984, Book 1, Chapter 3

IF YOU HAVE NO LOVE FOR THIS CONTROL FREAK GOVERNMENT...may I urge you to take a look at the many many articles written on this subject.

Home Education organisations
& individuals have sought to record & appraise all of the FACTS about, the lies being told
& the propaganda that has been pushed by our government & it's cronies, in order to demonise & vilify all home educating & free thinking families & individuals everywhere!

Once applied to Home Educators, THIS NEW SET OF POLICIES WILL HAVE TO APPLY TO ALL, or they would be classed in law as discriminatory...


UPDATE: December 2009-

"MP's have finally begun to get behind home educators & speak out against the proposals. It is likely that Labour will be ejected in the next election, but there are still NO cast iron guarantees from either of the main opponents that they will repeal this legislation.

The Children, Schools and Families Select Committee has published a report which is somewhat critical of the initial government review into home education & the proposals for legislation, but fails to grasp the heart of the issue... that the government works for the parent(taxpayer/citizen) & that it is up to the parent(taxpayer/citizen) to decide whether or not to utilise state provision of services & not for the state to compel us to do so.

Many families have stated their intent of non-compliance with this legislation, if introduced.
I, for one, WILL NOT be bullied into subjecting my children to ANY process which I do not feel it is in their best interests to be part of.
Some parents may be able to leave the country & start afresh in places with less draconian systems. But for many there will be no option except to stay & brazen it out." ('Learning Liberty' Forum)

For home educators, students and researchers: I have put one of the most comprehensive link lists for hundreds of thousands of statistical sources and indicators (economics, demographics, health etc.) on my blog: Statistics Reference List. And what I find most fascinating is how data can be visualised nowadays with the graphical computing power of modern PCs, as in many of the dozens of examples in these Data Visualisation References. If you miss anything that I might be able to find for you or if you yourself want to share a resource, please leave a comment.
