Friends, I’ve been speaking out against Common Core ever since I discovered what it truly is. Now, I have a homework assignment from a friend in New Yolk, as evidence of the complete corruption of this curriculum and its evil intentions on our children. First, here is the “source” page for the homework assignment:
The paper begins with a justification of the development of these articles – people were poor and disadvantaged, and they needed help. Then it goes into a summary of what the 30 articles of the Declaration do: comprehensibly define the conditions of being human in a God-free world. Why do I write God-free when the paper never addresses God? Because the paper never acknowledges God. That’s just a truth, and while it ignores God, it empowers another in His place. Though this document never identifies the source of any right for anyone, who grants those rights? The government. Who has the ultimate power? The government! Who is the biggest mass-murderer of the past? That’s right: The Government.
But what should we expect when we allow the government to educate our children, that it would relinquish it’s power to God? Government is too power hungry to do that.
Now, here’s the worksheet that accompanies this assignment.
Notice, please, how they don’t teach who secures the rights of “everyone.”
“No distinction shall be made on the basis of political, jurisdictional or inter nation status of the country or territory to which a person belongs…” So, all countries are equal? Then, please explain to me why South Korea is so much more wealthy and prosperous than North Korea. If all countries are equal, why did the Soviet Union fall, after receiving massive amounts of charity from the USA? (And why did they need charity at all?) Countries were not created equal; countries were created by men. America was blessed with an understanding of Judeo-Christian principles, created as a great experiment, testing those principles, “conceived in liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal,” as Abraham Lincoln so eloquently put it in his Gettysburg Address. He didn’t mention countries being equal, primarily because they’re not. No country has seen the explosion of wealth, created by entrepreneurial Americans in America. We are not equal. But the UN struggles to dissuade us from that belief, and now they are in our schools.
The good news is – this child didn’t finish her assignment (yet).
Who will enforce all these 30 articles on “rights?” Do I have a right to a body guard? Wouldn’t that be enslaving someone else to protect me? What about the right to life for an unborn, full-term baby, that the pro-abortion movement so callously calls a “choice?”
What other countries can you think of that might try to avoid granting those rights of Article 14? Can the UN bend them to the will of the UN? (Is the UN teaching their kids?) Snowden comes to mind as a great example of our own government not respecting his choice to “seek and enjoy in other countries asylum from persecution.”
What is marriage? Could we have the UN’s definition, please? Because for millennia it’s been simply a religious institution, not a political or fiscal one. But this document changes that. What is full age? Six? Twelve, Sixteen? In Saudi Arabia, there is no legal limit for a girl to be married. Happy first birthday, and congratulations on your marriage! So much for equality of the sexes, there.
“No one shall be arbitrarily deprived of his property.” Define arbitrarily.
How about, no one shall arbitrarily impose regulations on those who have no say in them? Did Americans vote on these articles? Of course not. That would be too democratic for those in power at the UN. They are too busy handing out rights to any and all comers.
But wait, I’ve saved the best for last:
Because it’s so blatantly false, I must repeat it here: “Everyone has the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and well-being of himself and of his family, including food, clothing, housing and medical care…” That would virtually enslave those who would provide those benefits. Slavery. How else can one be entitled to food and health care? This conjures up images of Mammy sewing Scarlett’s dresses. Oh, and by the way, good luck on the heart surgery your slave is performing on you. I hope that goes well, and I’m sure the slave does, too.
The main point here is that our children are being taught an enormous lie – the document is a lie. But that it’s part of the Common Core agenda is the plain truth.
