Philadelphia, PA — Responsibility is a word which is increasingly vanishing in the modern nanny state. As government continues to take over every aspect of our lives, one thing is becoming crystal clear — the state is a lousy parent.

From the cradle to the grave, federal recommendations, ostensibly designed for our wellbeing, ‘guide’ us through our lives telling us what to eat, when to sleep, how to work, when to die — and what to think.

Public schools more closely resemble prisons than centers of learning as students are locked in buildings and given a little ‘yard time’ between hours of forced indoctrination.

The effects of such a system are becoming more evident by the day. In spite of the fact that the United States spends more on public education than any other country in the world, Americans, on average, fail.

When it comes to basic technological skills like using email, buying and returning items online, using a drop-down menu, naming a file on a computer or sending a text message — Americans rank dead last.

According to a recent study by the Department of Education, Americans with a high school diploma performed about the same as high school dropouts in other countries.

Aside from the educational failures in the Land of the Free, the nation’s health is horrific too. Despite spending more on healthcare than any other country, America leads the world in obesity, heart disease, and cancer, while at the same time, consuming magnitudes more prescription drugs than the rest of the world.

Whether deliberate or a merely a symptom of empire — Americans are being dumbed down and becoming unhealthy.

A well-informed and healthy society is harder to rule over, which explains why America is descending into tyranny — we are less informed and sicker than ever.

A video uploaded to facebook last week illustrates the effects of such a depraved society. In the video, 4 children around the age of six, are seen terrorizing train passengers.

They were yelling racial slurs, cursing out passengers, even hitting and spitting on them.

“I was on the train I’m the one recording it I’m the one that got punched in the balls I started recording it after they smacked some lady and cursed her out,” Patrick Coyle, the man who took the video posted.

Below is a video which highlights a serious problem in America today. Gangs of six-year-olds reeking havoc are the things of dystopian ‘Mad Max’ fictions, but this, this is very real.

After the video went viral on Facebook, police located the mother of two of the children. She apologized, however, the step dad blamed the children’s behavior on the man filming.

“He instigated it to the point where they was acting like that,” the stepfather said.

SEPTA police were able to connect with the family Tuesday night and were working to get them set up with youth and family services — ironically, provided by the state.
