The TeenScreen Program: A Prelude in America to Orwell's 1984?

by writer/scientist Rod Jenkins

I was prompted to finally write this brief article after reading Are Your Children Crazy? by Dr. Jane M. Orient in the Health Sentinel. There, Dr. Orient draws a connection between federal intervention into mental health and our steady drift towards a loss of domestic freedoms and privacy.

The controversy surrounding the federally-supported national TeenScreen Program combined with the recent never-before-seen violations of our constitutional freedoms (on the excuse of fighting international terrorism) makes one thing crystal clear: America is unfortunately truly standing at the doorstep of George Orwell's '1984' and the Big Brother that Orwell foretold. 

~ President James Madison ~
“If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy”

~ Benjamin Franklin ~
"A nation of well informed men who have been taught to know and prize the rights which God has given them cannot be enslaved. It is in the region of ignorance that tyranny begins."

Government support of 'mental health' and the use of psychoactive drugs 'for our own good' is a step back into the exact practices and iron fist of the former Soviet Union. The motivation for this in America is twofold: (1) political payback to the pharmaceutical industry who will make billions from drugging our children; and (2) to raise the degree of control over our population by monied interests.  The latter is no less than a brazen attempt to turn us all into us all into 'good' little boys and girls so that when we grow up, we are dutiful, conforming and submissive worker/citizens who always do as we're told and never aspire to anything better than our assigned lot in life. Again, we have seen this before in the former Soviet Union.  It is a future of suppression of freedom of thought and of all religion except that sanctioned by the state. Our founding fathers must be convulsing in their graves at the loss of liberty that Big Money and Big Pharma are actively pursuing and planning for all of us.

~ Thomas Jefferson ~
"Banking establishments are more dangerous than standing armies. Already they have raised up a monied aristocracy that has set the government at defiance. ..."

"I have sworn upon the alter of God, eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man. ..."
"All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent. ..."

This is the real terror that we must fight: a future for our children that is devoid of the liberties that our forefathers established and which we have valiantly defended for over 200 years. The fear mongers are here among us and have now infiltrated to the top of our federal and state governments. And they plainly do not intend to stop until they own our souls.

~ George Washington ~
A government is like fire, a handy servant, but a dangerous master.

~ Thomas Jefferson ~

"Experience hath shewn, that even under the best forms of government those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny."

Not every threat comes from a foreign enemy. America and Western Civilization beware! We'd better switch off our mind-numbing TVs while we still can think for ourselves and start doing something about this. We owe it to our ourselves, our children and all future generations. Let it not be said that we ignored the warnings of our forefathers to be ever vigilant.
