When you come across someone of Sir Ken’s stature and wisdom in education, and you truly listen to what he is telling you, one can’t help but be deeply affected.
In spite of the challenges lockdown posed, I can’t help thinking it perhaps offered more educational opportunities than barriers for those who wanted to seize them. Individuals were finally free – during ‘school hours’ – to pursue education and learning of things that resonated with their interests, passions and inclinations, rather than the ‘one size fails to fit all’ standardised curriculum.
“Refuse to learn anything that implies collusion, whether it be a clerkship or a curacy, a legal fee or a post in a university. Retain the power of speech no matter what other power you may lose. If you can take this course, and in so far as you take it, you will bless this country.” John Jay Champman
Conspirators ought to fear that in attempting to hurry us they awaken us to a sense of our awful situation. For they who see our position as it really is, must never forget how totally different it ought to appear to us.
What we currently experience as democracy is the activated perversion of the law, in which the power of the state increases as electors fight between themselves via the ballot box, who will be the next victim of the next perversion of the law.
From Helmuth Hübener to Julian Assange, nothing changes, tyrants hate the truth!
We all want the best for our kids, and we want to feel confident that our kids are not being harmed when we think they are being helped, but legislation to coerce vaccination works against building confidence.
This delay to democracy is a stark reminder of our responsibility, as voters, to hold those elected to account not only at the ballot box, but throughout their terms of office.
All that has happened since 1973 has exposed the dangers of a top heavy, centrally controlled, system based in Westminster and the lack of a constitutional document that we can all make reference to.
It’s a free country, let’s hope it stays that way, because if it ever isn’t there won’t be anything you can do about it except run.
