We are all well used to hearing about schools where the teachers (almost always under a headmistress rather than headmaster) take ownership of the children to the extent that they dictate what can and cannot be in the kids’ packed lunches. Now it has gone a step further.
A primary school has appointed 10-year-olds as ‘packed lunch police’ with the power to inspect the food younger pupils bring to school – and even issue warnings if it is unhealthy.
Yes. Really. The ten-year-olds do not have to report the Mars-bar miscreants to the teachers. They have the authority to issue penalty notices. I wonder if they are all in hi-vis vests yet, with ‘future twatty adult’ stencilled on the back?
Parents are up in arms, naturally, but for the wrong reasons. “I decide what my children eat, not some ten-year-old fingermen with frogspawn for brains and the social skills of fast-lane roadkill.” Well okay, none of them used quite those words but it was all words to that effect. But they are missing the point here.
‘If these kids are inspecting my children’s sandwich fillings, how can I be sure they are washing their hands after going to the toilet and aren’t picking their noses? One six-year-old boy was given a warning slip just for having a Kellogg’s cereal bar.’
Even that is not the point. It’s a very good point – the lunch might well be ‘healthy’ until pudgy shit-laden fingers start poking around in it. But it’s not the point.
Headmistress Caroline Holliday said: ‘This healthy-eating campaign has been driven and implemented by our children themselves.’
Rubbish. If true, then it amounts to organised bullying. If true, who is supplying the fixed-penalty notices the mini-Gestapo are handing out? This is organised by the staff and particularly by the headmistress. Denial of responsibility, leading beyond authority, this has a certain organisation’s semaphore fake body language waving all around it.
The real point is control. Everyone watching everyone else. Everyone reporting on everyone else. Soviet Russia. Pol Pot’s Cambodia. Hitler’s Germany. Panoptica. You cannot trust anyone so you cannot organise any resistance. If you try, it soon becomes inevitable that you recruit an informant.
It’s silly to suppose that kids that age would even think about organising a resistance, but those kids will become adults one day. By that time they will have been conditioned into watching and reporting on each other.
The current ten-year-olds will continue to watch and report when they are older. Next year’s ten-year-olds will get the power that has been used to oppress them and they will use it with a vengeance. The year after that, the ten-year-olds will have suffered two years at the hands of the Lunchbox Stasi and they will be even more vindictive when it’s their turn to weild the baton. And it will not stop with lunchboxes.
It just gets nastier every year. School uniforms will soon include jackboots and peaked caps for ten-year-old and above. Before that there will be armbands – if there aren’t already.
It’s not about the food. Not about the hygeine. It’s about training the kids to control each other, even when ‘official’ authority is absent. Okay, there is an argument that kids could do with a bit more control but that argument was engineered to happen from the outset. Let them have their head, let them do as they please and then smack them down with harsh control. The drones will not only accept it, they will cheer for it.
Sure, the parents are angry about it and quite rightly so, but what about Society? The Society that has been brainwashed into thinking that all children belong to everyone and the parents are merely temporary caretakers. They will be delighted when the control gets tighter and tighter and the kids march to school like loads of Midwich Cuckoos.
Then they will march to work just like in the old film ‘Metropolis’.
Note that there are no reports of the parents of ten-year-olds objecting to their child being used as an unpaid enforcer. As each class moves up a year, another lot of parents will be happy to see their children move from ‘oppressed’ to ‘oppressor’ status and their voices will fall silent. In a few years, the parents of new-starts will accept this as ‘just the way things are’.
The lunchboxes are only the beginning. It’s an easy place to start the behavioural modifications. Control will move up in tiny increments and might even abandon the lunchbox controls once the deeper controls are in place. There’ll be no more need of it and it’ll be a crumb to placate the mob.
What we are seeing here is the natural progression from the teachers controlling the kids to having the kids control each other under the direction of the teachers. They are no longer teachers. They are trainers.
Training the Stasi Generation.
