Education And Ethics And The Media.

Undeniably a major contributor to the education of an individual is the media!

As a very young child most of the education comes from the parents but how the parents interact with the media serves as an example and educator of the child. If the parent uses moderation and makes sure that the child is lovingly cared for then the child learns to be a critical viewer.

Once the child is school-aged the media competes for the attention of the child. Technological advances have made the media portable, and so it is always with the child and it can facilitate the educational process or it can distract away from the discipline needed to acquire foundational knowledge.

By youthhood there is an independent connection to the media. At this stage there is a choice made about whether the media will be the primary or a secondary source of information. This decision carries over into adulthood.

Notice that each individual at each stage in their life is looking towards the media. Possibly during the formation of ethics and certainly during the application of ethics the media plays a role.

Now we have arrived at the point that I want to emphasize. There is an ethical responsibility that rests upon the media. This is easily proven by considering why it is that fraud is considered a crime. If someone conveys (by some form of media) false information an act of fraud has occurred and universally there is recognition that fraud is something that should be punishable.

Where does the ethical responsibility of the media rest? In a free society it rests with the originator of the information. In a controlled society the responsibility becomes difficult to trace to its origin because it is in the form of propaganda.

The only recourse, in a society that is controlled by interventionists, is for the people to demand ethical behavior. And that is what needs to happen now!

Are the major news networks becoming irrelevant? If they are too controlled to report news in an unbiased manner the answer is yes! There is no legitimate reason to deny coverage to Ron Paul. Are the reporters that poor at discovering news or are they constrained? Constraining media is an oxymoron and so the only explanation for this constraining is that it is a type of fraud conducted by the ego-driven interventionists.

The lack of ethics in the media profession is abhorrent as attested by their slow and reluctant coverage of Ron Paul.

I challenge everyone in the media to do your job with justice. I challenge everyone in the world to make ethics the basis of your education. If the media is acting unethically speak out!!!

American Ethic And Ron Paul

I always wondered what it would be like to have a national identity. Since it has been numerous generations since my ancestors came to America, when I would see people who still had close ties to their cultural roots I would feel happy for their good fortune and at the same time I would feel a void in my life. Yet I never was attracted to the belligerent national pride repeatedly touted by politicians to serve their own ego-driven motives.

One of the things that I have learned from Ron Paul is that we do have an American ethic and that ethic was formalized and preserved in the Constitution. Nowhere else in the world is there a covenant between the people and their government that has the same unique characteristics. All of the characteristics embodied in the Constitution are part of the system of liberty and justice that stir the hearts of Americans to their very core.

This American ethic clearly set forth in the Constitution is unifying. The freedoms are granted to all, which is why liberty is also a system of justice.

If you understand why this covenant had to be clearly defined and put into the form of a legal document that we call the Constitution then you also understand who is the enemy of liberty and justice. The American ethic identifies the enemy as unrepresentative government which means government that is centralized. That is why the Constitution is a document affirming States rights.

None of the abominations that afflict our nation would even exist if States rights were dominant. Our nation of united States would not be fighting wars all over the world nor would counterfeiting of the currency by a central bank be permitted.

The American ethic that has been deliberately made obscure by an education system that serves its lord (centralized government) is, ironically, well defined and it is readily available to everyone. The relevance of the Constitution is now made supremely evident by a humble statesman, Ron Paul, who can restore to a nation its highly meritorious ethic.

If you are searching for the American ethic simply read the Constitution. In it you will find an identity that will make you proud, but humbly proud, and thankful for being born in such a remarkable and honorable nation.

Education And Ethics And Ron Paul.

What we have here, what we are witnessing right before our eyes is the removal of the shackles of propaganda which have been passed off as education for several generations! And at the same time we are awakening to our long last ethic as a people blessed to live in a nation founded upon liberty and justice.

Neither of these monumental changes have been so alive and vital since the days of the founding of our nation. However this time information can travel at the speed of light but also this time the oppressor is amongst us rather than in a distant land.

We are very fortunate to have a statesman, Ron Paul, who was able to persevere by principle in a political system that perpetuates itself by using the education system to distort the American ethic. Ron Paul is rare for his uncompromising principles and the reason he is uncompromising is because he understands classical liberalism. He aspires to give the idea of liberty and justice and prosperity to everyone. His unselfishness is the reason some say that not since George Washington has there been such a leader.

The prospect of true education and ethics finding a resurgence is aided by the internet and by the instant recognition of the truth value of liberty and justice. All minds not veiled by indoctrination are intrigued and attracted.

It is noteworthy that this movement is referred to as a revolution and it is distinctively an American revolution. We are fortunate to be able to do what our forefathers did and we are fortunate to know that the enemy will resist. Instead of 'The redcoats are coming!' we may hear 'The welfare/warfare statists are coming!'
