Republican Governor Phil Scott instructed Vermont’s public schools to interrogate returning students today to determine whether they had enjoyed a holiday gathering with more than just their immediate family or whether they had traveled to gather with others for Thanksgiving. If the students snitch on their family, they will be forced to online classes only for 14 days or 7 days plus a negative Coronahoax test.
If the Coronahoax tests really work and mean anything, why can’t they just get one on Monday and go right back if they are negative? Why can’t the asymptomatic be assumed healthy until proven sick? We have done it that way for every other disease. Why are they assumed to be infected and must test, yet the rest of the allegedly asymptomatic “infected spreaders” in the school require no testing? Which junk science should they follow? Fauci’s new claim that children do not carry/spread Coronahoax, or that all asymptomatic people are infected carriers? In either case, Phil Scott and the State of Vermont are wrong with their new Family Snitch policy and will not protect “public health”.
Vermont Governor Directs Schools To Interrogate Students About Their Family’s Thanksgiving Activities
George Orwell describes this exact tactic in 1984:
“They had played a similar trick with the instinct of parenthood. The family could not actually be abolished, and, indeed, people were encouraged to be fond of their children in almost the old-fashioned way. The children, on the other hand, were systematically turned against their parents and taught to spy on them and report their deviations. The family had become in effect an extension of the Thought Police. It was a device by means of which everyone could be surrounded night and day by informers who knew him intimately.”
“Nearly all children nowadays were horrible. What was worst of all was that by means of such organizations as the Spies they were systematically turned into ungovernable little savages, and yet this produced in them no tendency whatever to rebel against the discipline of the Party. On the contrary, they adored the Party and everything connected with it… All their ferocity was turned outwards, against the enemies of the State, against foreigners, traitors, saboteurs, thought-criminals. It was almost normal for people over thirty to be frightened of their own children.”
There are many who are rightfully upset about turning public school students into Family Snitches. However, I would suggest many never noticed that the schools have been doing this for many years (See the D.A.R.E. program for example). They just didn’t worry about it because the children were being trained to snitch on those they saw as “bad” and if they weren’t doing “bad” things, they would have nothing to hide.
