Oscar Callaway Quote

“I regret to say it, but we are gradually turning over the business of Congress, turning over all our constitutional rights, turning over our powers delegated by the people to a lot of editors, theorists, and college professors who are not capable of conducting our affairs and to whom we should not abdicate.”

Several years ago I read a study on the personalities that become teachers vs. entrepreneurs and employed workers that attempt to advance their careers. It was fairly clear, those that can't do teach. Marx must have understood the reality when he wrote the 10th plank of the communist manifesto. In college business classes, it was told often, never let an attorney or CPA be the president or major voice in your company (I add here, congress) as is covered well by the here quote. That which is called media today is nothing more than missionary work for the occupying statist theocracy infesting this land.

Spoken in 1917.  Imagine how much power the media and academia have now.  They have hijacked the 'memory' of the populace.  The end result, and goal, is to promote a narrative that gives them more power, stealing free thought itself, and propping themselves up as experts and authorities to whom all must treat as gospel.
