Child Protective Services has routinely abused children and families across the country, and now a judge is coming out and admitting that’s the case.
Rob Dew breaks down how Texas CPS has been abusing children and destroying families for years and how now someone may be about to do something about it.
The attack on families by CPS in America has been cataloged many times on the Think About Now website. The truth of the matter is, CPS was never meant to protect families, it was always about controlling children. In the same way that public education was started to create predictable citizens who would become obedient workers, CPS was created as a tool to be used to ensure that obedience.
In both cases they’ve done a terrific job. In New York City you have a illiteracy rate of 80% among high school graduates, which makes sure that you have a perpetual dependent class. With Child Protective Services, you have over 400,000 children being taken out of their homes and into the shackles of violent foster homes. Many of these children were taken away by their parents for marijuana (resulting in the child’s death in a foster home), for allowing their kids to play outside, or even for simply homeschooling their children.
Once more, when those children get into a foster care system they are regularly abused. Foster kids are 7-8 times more likely to be abused than normal children, nearly half will end up homeless, they are 3 times more likely to be put on psychotropic drugs, seven times more likely to develop an eating disorder, more likely to have PTSD than veterans of war and less likely to recover from that PTSD, more likely to become pregnant as a teenager, 20% more likely to be arrested, and are 6 times more likely to die than if they stayed in an abusive household.
When a child ends up into the hands of the state, the chances of that child doing well drop dramatically. This is not an issue of inefficiencies, because the aim is not to create individualistic free thinking children. The aim is to create a two class system on purpose. As president Woodrow Wilson put it:
“We want one class of persons to have a liberal education, and we want another class of persons, a very much larger class of necessity in every society, to forgo the privilege of a liberal education and fit themselves to perform specific difficult manual tasks.”
There is no way to reform the state to benefit the individual, because the state is antithetical to the very notion of individualistic ethics. We need to free ourselves from the idea that we should be controlled by a monolithic agency that is parasitical in its nature.
In order to do that we need to be able to protect ourselves first. One way to do that is to know what to do when CPS comes knocking, which is outlined here. Another form of protection is education yourself and others about what CPS is, and a thorough breakdown of how the system works. The best way to do that is by actually reading a book on the subject, which can be found here.
Always remember that the government is not here to help you, and thankfully because of the internet and government whistle-blowers coming out, that information is getting out exponentially.
Carlos Morales is a former Child Protective Services investigator, president and founder of Child Protective Services Victim Support, the host of the Libertarian Atheist Podcast, and a committed legal advocate for family reunification.
Since leaving his career as an investigator, he has actively helped families throughout the country fight for their children in and out of court. His pursuit of a radical overhaul for child protection programs has taken him from university lecture halls, to television and radio studios, and the pages of a variety of publications. This has culminated into the publication of his new book, Legally Kidnapped: The Case Against Child Protective Services (http://www.legallykidnapped.net/)
