I was going to blog about this yesterday but just couldn’t fit it in. No matter; Billy Beck has done what needed doing to the miserable prick Chris Benisch, principal of the Harris Park Elementary School in Westminster, Colorado.
For now, however, all he knows is that just being himself can land his ass in a sling: at his age, it’s his job to integrate his senses and cognition (who here was never momentarily fascinated with the smell of a Magic Marker at his age?), and that is why he got stomped by this mindless punk commissar, Benisch.
Now, I don’t know whether this sort of thing is all entirely new, or if it’s more an effect of the Internet, being able to publicize far, wide, and instantly. I tend to suspect the latter, and if so, then at least there’s that.
But if you’ve been paying attention over the past few years, here and elsewhere, have you been finally getting the sense that what you grew up to understand about justice, i.e., that it was about getting the bad guy, isn’t the reality?
The reality is that it’s either about the getting, for ego’s sake, self promotion, attention, or whatever, with little regard to who’d being got, and why. Or, it’s about social engineering and conditioning. Billy nails the point: "just being himself." This is what the social engineers have really been fighting all these decades. They’re waging war against human nature.
They will loose, eventually, but the real question is how many get chewed up and to what extent in the meantime. As for that miserable fuckwad Benisch, I will hope that he never, ever gets let off the hook for this for the rest of his life.
