The Federalist: A Little Mother Prevents Big Brother

Sinthonia Compfight CC
To know a mother’s love is to be known and to be human.

As all good totalitarians know, it is mothers—specifically, devoted and self-sacrificing mothers—who gum up the works of statist control in a society. Her crime is forging bonds of love, the self-sacrificing kind that don’t mix with big government schemes. Worse, when she forges these bonds within the context of a marriage covenant with the child’s father, she is exponentially more hazardous to the centralized state.

Those bonds give the child a sense of stability and purpose. The child can see before his eyes the answer to his first existential question: “Where did I come from?” But what really makes Big Brother go ballistic is when the little mothers actually instill in their children a sense of belonging and unique purpose in the universe. Yes, religion. This develops strength of spirit. When people learn to call on a force of goodness—i.e., to pray—they are better emotionally equipped to resist Big Brother’s tactics to isolate them. A strong and healthy faith also helps the child to learn to detect and discern deceptions.

A healthy mother-child bond anchors and stabilizes children. It imbues them with a sense of security to go forth and explore the world and make friends. This is very bad for the grievance industry of central control. These bonds of loyalty produce a sense of joy. They end up unleashing innovation and industry, which the child then broadcasts into the greater community as an adult. This creates prosperity and well-being, also very bad omens for the statist.

Every mother-child bond is unique, as well. In the context of family, every child experiences different influences growing up: different ideas, a different set of relatives, different traditions, different attitudes, different perspectives. It’s all very de-centralizing to power. Good for the child. Bad for the impersonal Big Brother state.

One thought on “The Federalist: A Little Mother Prevents Big Brother

  1. This has already happened all over US. Ever look up sex offenders? Many are scary folk. Many are Dads who acted innapropriately by some regulator’s standard and removed from a family. A father who fell asleep getting his 6 yr old girl to fall asleep? Attempted sexual assault. Done. The life time branding he has helps to break the provider / protector bond since he can’t get a job or even see his child. Many similar parent removals are for some kind of abuse, the application of which is wholly unregulated.
