Forced Genuflection To A Government School Principal

By, Chris Rossini

If a person who has a lust to dominate others is given power, there's going to be problems. Naturally, such people are attracted to government "jobs" more than any other. After all, what can be better than to have the legal authority to live out your delusions of grandeur?

You don't have to reach the pinnacle, and become a President, who drones innocent people around the world. Libido dominandi would have to run exceptionally strong through you to reach that level. For as F.A. Hayek argued in The Road to Serfdom, when it comes to government, the worst rise to the top.

No, there are plenty of other government "jobs" where you can puff out your chest like a peacock and show everyone who's boss. Just go to an airport, Post Office, DMV, or even a government school.

CBS Los Angeles reports that a school in San Bernardino County:
...will discontinue a policy that required elementary school students to kneel down before being dismissed to class.

Principal Dana Carter at Calimesa Elementary School had reportedly instituted the policy, which called for students at various times of the school day to kneel down on one knee and wait for the principal or another administrator to dismiss them, as a safety measure. [...]

Mass phone notifications were sent out on Tuesday informing parents that students will not be made to kneel effective immediately.
Power truly warps the human mind.
