My message is blunt. It’s meant to awaken. To connect the dots. Most importantly: To inform.
The traditional Democrat Party is dead. It’s gone. Progressivism has absorbed it. Progressivism is a euphemism for today’s postmodern-Socialism.
On Socialism: Among Socialism’s 45 goals read into the 1963 Congressional Record were: (1) Control the schools and teachers’ associations [think VT-NEA]. Soften the curriculum. (2) Emphasize the need to raise children away from the influence of parents. Promote promiscuity. (3) Discredit America’s founding [think CRT & BLM]. (4) Transfer powers from police to social agencies [think Defund the Police]. Sound familiar?
On Postmodernism: Postmodernism is a Cultural Revolution. It seeks to replace Modernism or the Enlightenment era. Modernism believes that reality can be known through objective reason (male and female)
and as reason is a faculty of the individual, the individual is the unit of value. Postmodernism rejects this reality and believes subjective reality (male becoming female) is constructed through language and social conditions. Postmodernism rejects the notion that education exists to primarily train a child’s cognitive capacity for reason. It believes education should imprint onto the child’s consciousness a given social identity (race, sex, sexuality). These identities then clash for power and control (oppressors vs. oppressed). Among Postmodernism’s goals is to control a mass of people through the manipulation of language.
Connecting the Dots: Vermont’s Act 35 allows children to consent to psychotherapy without parental consent; proposed bill H659 allows children to receive medical treatments without parental consent; proposed
bill H630 decriminalizes prostitution; and proposed constitutional amendment Article 22 not only permits abortion up to the day of birth, but its deceptive vagueness (“personal reproductive autonomy”) could enshrine human cloning, designer babies, eugenics, prostitution and three-DNA conceived children.
A Forewarning: Former Vermont resident and Nobel laureate Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn spoke of such things during his prescient 1978 Harvard University Commencement Address:
“The split in today’s world is perceptible even to a hasty glance…. [F]reedom toward evil has come about gradually… to which man… does not bear any evil within himself, and all defects of life are caused by misguided social systems, which must therefore be corrected…. The humanistic way of thinking… did [not] see any task higher than the attainment of happiness on earth. And yet in… American democracy at the time of its birth, all individual human rights were granted on the ground that man is God’s creature…. We have placed too much hope in politics and social reforms, only to find out that we were being deprived of our most precious possession: Our Spiritual Life.”
About Tom Licata: I have a MBA from the College of William & Mary and ten years’ experience in strategic planning with IBM and Virginia Electric & Power. I earned Burlington’s Leadership Award for organizing our multiyear Block Party, coaching Little League Baseball and leading our Cub Scout Pack. I worked with homeless children in NYC’s Times Square and family summer trips included working on construction projects for the disadvantaged in West Virginia’s Appalachian region. I’m now a Caregiver for the elderly.
Summation: I’ll measure every action I take against its impact on your family’s economic health. My goal is to heal the damage done by the reckless economic, law-enforcement, and family policies of today’s postmodern-Socialists; most notably disguised within the remnants of yesterday’s traditional Vermont Democrat Party.
My Advice: Stop voting for them: For if it’s man - and not God or nature - which determines reality then the only God of man is man himself… precisely Socialism’s goal.
