INDIVIDUALITY LOST! The State, Its Committees, Collective Decision Making & Uniformity Did Not Produce A Great Society In George Orwell’s ‘1984’. State Control Of Public Education With Its Committees, Collective Decision Making, Lesson Plans & Uniformity Does Not Produce An Educated Populace In America’s 2013. The Parallel Is Clear But Ignored. The Assembly Line Produces Automatons, Not Progress. Ayn Rand Was So Close (‘Objectivism’ Philosophy), But Yet So Dead Wrong Because, Like Reagan Republicans, Her Premise Was Based On Individual Selfishness More Than Creative Individuality. Where Modern Man Has Gone Wrong & How Modern Inventions Are Both Good For The Privileged & Bad For Everyone Else!

“The division of labor, in fact, contributes to increased efficiency in production, proved most masterfully by Henry Ford and his advances in assembly line manufacturing.

Prior to Ford’s advancement of the assembly line for automobile production, cars were primarily produced by craftsmen, as was the case with most things. Each car was individually produced by a team of craftsmen, and each of these craftsmen had to be highly skilled and very knowledgeable about the mechanics of cars in order to build them.

With the assembly line a small team of people designed the car and assembly process, and a larger team of unskilled workers built the cars. What was so remarkable about Ford’s process was that any man off the street, even if he had never seen a car before, could work on the assembly line and with a few instructions he could be a part of the team building cars.

A worker could work on the wheel assembly section without having ever seen a car motor in his life.

With the division of labor the individual needs only to know how to do his specific task and nothing more. The assembly-line worker requires no large-scale knowledge, no vision, no concept of the whole. As long as the worker can turn the screw when the piece is in front of him that’s all he needs to know and do. In fact, this allows each worker to focus on perfecting a specific set of skills and can actually lead to increased quality.

This is the process of the socialization of labor.

Capitalism naturally creates a tendency for increased economic efficiency. This increased efficiency comes through the continuing division of labor, specialization and economies of scale.

I may be a worker on an assembly-line doing my part to build a car, yet I may have no idea what is going in the next room where the next part in the process is being done.” Continue reading

“CENTRAL PARK FIVE” (A New Film), 5-Black & Hispanic Youths Exonerated But Never Reimbursed For Up To 13-Years Spent In Prison Re Bogus Police Entrapment & Railroading In The 1989 “Central Park Jogger” Case (“The Crime Of The Century”? – Only Because Those In Charge Thought The Guilty Were BLACK). We’re Talking Here New York, NY, Not New York, Mississippi! Is American Justice Blind Or Just Blindly, Racially Prejudiced! There Were 6-VICTIMS Here, Not Just 1! But Only The 1-White Female Victim Received Special Consideration – The 5-Victims Of Color Got American INJUSTICE As Usual!

RAYMOND SANTANA: I served almost seven years. And so, what happened was that, you know, I tried to get my life back together and put one foot in front of the other, but I didn’t—you know, I didn’t realize the social death that we were given at the sentence. You know, this wasn’t a five to 15 or five to 10; this was a life sentence, a death sentence, in a sense, because, you know, when I came home, I couldn’t get employment. You know, I tried out—filled out numerous applications. And, you know, I had to register as a sex offender. You know, my whole neighborhood looked at me, you know, kind of strange, you know. You know, you get the “Hi, how are you doing?” but, you know, you always have that bullseye on the back, you know, that says, “Someway, somehow, I’m Raymond Santana from the Central Park jogger case.” Continue reading

Alternative Approach To Same Goal: RAISING TAXES ON RICH! Maintain Current Tax Rates, But LIMIT DEDUCTIONS TO $50,000! This Method Also Permits Republicans To Stand On Semantics And Say, “But We Kept Our Promise! We Did Not Raise Taxes!” (In The Future, Should The GOP Regain Power In DC, We Must Then Prevent Republicans From Reinstalling These Same Or Slightly Different Deductions For The Wealthy & ‘Too Big To Fails’!) – Thanks, Washington Post Editorial! But You Neglected To Add “ELIMINATE TAX BREAKS That Permit Corporations To Profit From OUTSOURCING AMERICAN JOBS OFFSHORE!” One Abomination Removal At A Time Will Remove Urgency To Take Further Action! Let’s Do It ALL & DO IT NOW! And, President Obama, Stand Up To GOP SOPHISTRY! Only Democrats EFFECTIVELY COMPROMISE, & DEMS DO IT UNILATERALLY ALL-THE-TIME!

Obama said I have my plans, but I’m willing to compromise, I’m willing to listen, and I’m willing to entertain new ideas. The truth is the President has the upper hand right now. Not only was he reelected by a pretty convincing Electorate, he also picked up seats in the House and the Senate. And 60% of Americans by the way agree with him on Taxes. They think Taxes need to go up for the Wealthiest so that everybody pays their fair share. They agree with him that we need a Balanced Approach. How’s that going to play out? That’s the $64 Million Dollar Question! The President doesn’t want to drive the country over the Fiscal Cliff, but is he willing to let Tax Cuts expire for everyone if Republicans won’t agree to raise Taxes for the Wealthiest?

OBAMA WINS 2ND TERM! Sarah Palin’s “Let’s Make Obama A One-Term President” FAILED! The END Of Tabacco’s Nov. 6th CELEBRATION! Now, The Real Work Begins! A White Republican (George W. Bush) Nor A White Democrat (Bill Or Hillary Clinton) Could Never GET AWAY WITH Selling Out Social Security & Medicare In The Guise Of COMPROMISE As This Black Democrat In The Oval Office Plots & Schemes! The US Constitution (“3/5 Of All Other Persons”) & Missouri Compromise (1 Free State + 1 Slave State) Are Just 2 Examples Of Compromise With Evil. We The People Must Never Again Permit Political Abominations Of Such Biblical Proportions! A Judas Goat Is A Judas Goat Regardless Of Skin Color – Mr. President, The American People Will Not Permit You To Compromise With Evil!!

No Socialist President would even consider such Abominations as undermining Social Security or Medicare! Therefore that “Socialist” tag, applied by Right-Wing Liars (“Liars” because they KNOW BETTER), must be false! In Truth, no White President – Democrat or Republican – would even DARE speak such Nonsense! Had George W. Bush (R) or Bill Clinton (D) tried such a move, there would have been a Public Rhetorical Lynching! Continue reading
