Communist Propaganda

Author Theodore Dalrymple noted in 2005 that political correctness is simply “communism writ small,” adding:

“I came to the conclusion that the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, nor to inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better. When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, or even worse when they are forced to repeat the lies themselves, they lose once and for all their sense of probity. To assent to obvious lies is to co-operate with evil, and in some small way to become evil oneself. One’s standing to resist anything is thus eroded, and even destroyed. A society of emasculated liars is easy to control. I think if you examine political correctness, it has the same effect and is intended to.” read more

Government’s Justification: Protecting Individual Rights

By Bradley Harrington

Brad Harrington

“I believe there are more instances of the abridgement of the freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments of those in power, than by violent and sudden usurpations.” — James Madison, “Virginia Ratifying Convention Speech,” 1788 —

Once in a while I’ll get asked a really good question by a reader — and, this time around, it’s this:

“Please write a column in detail outlining your manifesto on how our country’s government should function. Respectfully, Mac Jones.” (“Letter,” c/o the WTE.) read more

School Indoctrination: From the Acorns Grow the Trees

By Bradley Harrington

Brad Harrington

“The new education must consist essentially in this, that it completely destroys freedom of will … If you want to influence him [the student] at all, you must do more than merely talk to him; you must fashion him, and fashion him in such a way that he simply cannot will otherwise than you wish him to will.” — Johann Gottlieb Fichte, “Second Address to the German Nation,” 1807 —

Last week we examined the manner in which the “public” schools, owned and manipulated by government, have become hotbeds of collectivist indoctrination (“Self-realization takes a back seat to school indoctrination,” WTE, March 18), and we examined just a few of those “ideas” and how they’ve been smuggled into our so-called “educational” process. read more

Mark Gordon: A Divide between His Statements and His Record

As part of a 5th generation family of Wyomingites I believe it is important to be honest about who we are electing to move our state forward. In 2016, I and many others witnessed and were part of families that experienced massive layoffs. I went to many functions to advocate for the hardworking families of Wyoming all over our state. While doing so, I witnessed people from the Sierra Club and other “green” organizations lie about the coal, oil, and gas industries, painting the positive work of our legacy industries in a dark light. I witnessed people who claimed to be members of these same groups project their cognitive distortions to elected officials in order to sway the making of public policy. Wyoming currently has two candidates in the Republican governor’s race that have affiliated themselves with these very organizations. I don’t want anyone to be fooled about who they are voting for in Wyoming and what that means for families like mine. read more

Local International Code Council History

Let’s take a short walk down memory lane, to the 2013 era, where we will find that the International Code Council (ICC) is not a new thing to Wyoming and Casper. Read the PDF article (below) and see how the ICC has been infecting all of Wyoming with the help of Mr. Brown. Note this guy is from Gillette. The article is dated when our city manager was City Administrator in Gillette.

Casper City Manager, J (James) Carter Napier is DEEP in this agenda. When he was serving as City Administrator in Gillette (he resigned there so he could work in Casper), in 2015 the ICC Proposed to offer a High School Technical Training Program there. Also, Carter used to serve as intern to the City Manager in Longview, WA. who also has adopted the International Property Maintenance Code (IPMC). read more
