[LFC Comments: Geauga County’s Tom Niewulis weighs in on the empire building of local government bureaucracies.]
Mental Health and Bureaucratic Demiurge
Written by Tom Niewulis
Mental Health and Bureaucratic Demiurge1 is rampant as proven by the fear instilled through the ChicomFlu mania. I am bringing this program very close to home by referencing the County Board I am on as well as generalizing about Ohio’s bureaucracies. Be aware that this discussion has validity in other States because every level of government is inundated with career bureaucrats. If we honestly do an assessment, the prediction of the Anti-federalists regarding the growth and bloating of bureaucracies is a detriment to Liberty is before US.
Keeping it simple:
In the simplest terms, most local and state boards/bureaucracies do not have clear accountability to the citizenry and most often, the bureaucrats in charge do not hold agencies serving the bureaucracies accountable. Instead the bureaucrats in charge find every means and mechanisms to garner more tax payer dollars to feed the agencies serving their so called legislative mandates. The legacy goal of the bureaucrat is to amass stockpiles of grants and other tax dollars via local, state and federal systems to feed the agencies who are ‘tax exempt corporations.’
This is systemic empire building across all legislative administrative boards at the state, county and local levels. The quest: How to legally hoard Citizens taxes and neglect to hold those using the taxes accountable. Of course, the bureaucrats will loudly proclaim that they are just ensuring that they are following the law and guaranteeing that services to the public are being properly taken care of.
The not so simple continued:
In the heat of the election cycle, the various Ohio County Boards act with impunity. By this I mean that the general Citizenry has no concept of what the various boards do. With that, the members of the boards are often cajoled by the executive directors of the various boards to acquiesce by virtue of these hired bureaucrats knowing how to play the system. I will infer a lot to the Mental Health Board that I am a part of. My comments here and on the program are systemic of all Ohio codified County Boards.
For this program, the focus on Mental Health was energized by a series of article by Judith Acosta. I appreciate her approach to social services in general. In reading her article ‘A conservative social worker! (Is that even possible?)’ – caused me to think back to when I received my Behavioral Science degree. OK, it was in 1980ish….. At that time I rejected the idea of getting into the profession of counseling or becoming a psychologist, because the immorality and leftist political ideologies were already encased in the profession. I saw no way that I could realistically bring Truth Principles, that is God’s Principles, into the counseling arena. I did not want to spend my time or money in academia where their intent was to destroy the Foundations of a moral society.
Let’s face it, Christianity left the work of social, mental and recovery services to the children of the ‘60’s who where attempting to find themselves and wanted to feel good by ‘helping others.’ In creating that vacuum, Biblical Christianity allowed humanism, marxism and all the other ‘isms’ to solely own the profession mental health of generations from the inception of social science to the present. Shame on us Christians!
So, With this program, I take you on the path of what Judith had to write about and bring in the fact of one of her articles regarding ‘Viral Fear: The Disease of the American Soul.’ This article is more relevant with the ChicomFlu insanity today than when it was written.
Don’t Let the ChicomFlu Dominate You
I have to address what President Trump said when he returned to the White House. As you know, I have been outspoken on the madness of the actions of the Ohio Governor let alone the total insanity of the blue state dictators. They have been exercising despotism but the sheeple capitulate because of Viral Fear.
Bottom line, it is time for all good Citizens to take their locals, counties and states back from the fear mongers.
Mental Health Demigods
Bureaucratic Demiurge are what many Mental Health Demigods see themselves as. Hey, isn’t that saying the same thing twice? Well, read another Judith article – ‘How Therapists Became Gods’ and you’ll get the meaning of both. Simply put here, for those in Ohio: there is very little to zero accountability of agencies using your tax dollars and – the Mental Health Boards only go after more tax dollars with little justification as to why agencies really need the money and what is the actual population being served? Oh, but if you count all school students as in need of mental, social and behavioral counseling – then I guess you are allowing the Mental Health Demigods to determine the shaping of the next generation of minions to the left.
Citizens should be screaming at their State Legislators, County commissioners and their States Mental Health Boards to prove in finite detail why these boards are spending so much local, state and federal tax dollars with questionable results and – fostering ideologies contrary to the American DNA and Founding Principles. Sadly, the Legislators don’t want to rock the boat and work at truly moral legislation. The State Boards love their ivory towers and building their empires so they don’t care about accountability and the County Boards, well most depend on the hired bureaucrats to tell them what should be and then act according to their own objectives as I mentioned.
Oh, consider this, bureaucrats that holds an executive position in any bureaucracy, SHALL NOT continue to be in that position for more than 15 years.
Hmm, if that was law maybe we would not have had a Dr. Fauci dictating despotism to the nation let alone local bureaucrats building 30 year legacies that ultimately become self-interests instead of Citizen interest.
Sam Adams Wisdom
Three quotes from the Fourth Volume of Samuel Adams Writings. These quote are what we should be doing in education such that the mental health of our students and citizens are not run by Bureaucratic Demiurge on School Boards or Mental Health Boards, or in fact any legislature created Board.
1st “If we continue to be a happy people, that happiness must be assured by the enacting and executing of reasonable and wise laws, expressed in the plainest language, and by establishing such modes of education as tend to inculcate in the minds of youth, the feelings and habits of “piety, religion and morality,” and to lead them to the knowledge and love of those truly Republican principles upon which our civil institutions are founded. We have solemnly engaged ourselves, fellow citizens, to support the Constitution of the United States, and the Constitution of this Commonwealth. This must be reconcileable in the mind of any man, who judiciously considers the sovereign rights of the one as limited to federal purposes, and the sovereign rights of the other, as acting upon and directing the internal concerns of our own Republic.”
2nd “Our ancestors, when under the greatest hardships and perils, they opened to us the wilderness, they took possession of, and left for us an inheritance, one of the best countries under the sun. Amidst their toil, and fatigue they extended their views, and early laid the foundation of Civil Liberty. Although they had in prospect, the instruction of future youth in all literary science, they considered morality and real goodness of heart, as the great basis upon which the best interests of a nation could be safely laid. Under this idea, they also provided for the institutions of Public Worship, and the support of teachers in Piety, Religion and Morality. The great increase of our numbers & happiness, is a standing witness to the world, of the wisdom of their measures. Oppressed as they were by the supercilious haughtiness of royal prerogative, and considered as a contemptible people at a distance from the favors of the Crown, and the flattering smiles of courtiers, their perseverance has in effect raised us, by the blessing of Providence, to an exalted degree of prosperity and glory.”
3rd “As Piety, Religion and Morality have a happy influence on the minds of men, in their public as well as private transactions, you will not think it unseasonable, although I have frequently done it, to bring to your remembrance the great importance of encouraging our University, town schools, and other seminaries of education, that our children and youth while they are engaged in the pursuit of useful science, may have their minds impressed with a strong sense of the duties they owe to their God, their instructors and each other, so that when they arrive to a state of manhood, and take a part in any public transactions, their hearts having been deeply impressed in the course of their education with the moral feelings—such feelings may continue and have their due weight through the whole of their future lives.”
But, the principles in these quotes are the antithesis of present mental health professionals, social workers and bureaucracies.
