Essay on 'It is good that skinheads are in power.'


It wasn't until the skinheads began going to graduate schools, that things
really began to change around here. At first there was resistance, and in
fact a lot of the early ones converted, as if they saw the 'error of their
ways.' But as more and more came in, the junior faculty and adjuncts were
affected themselves, and soon, more and more key positions were held by
this segment of the population, a fifth column of supremacists and
marauders that no longer gave credence to the idea that 'education was for
everyone.' Whatever minorities did make it in 'the hallowed walls' soon
found themselves the targets of unmitigated criticism from all sides. Some
did stay the course, and often were converted into a kind of self-hatred;
many left for 'better pastures' outside the school system altogether.

It wasn't long before the school boards of some of the nation's top states
fell under the sway of the skinheads, and education went back to the
primary values of Dick and Jane, in which the highest goal was the white
suburban street with a station wagon in every driveway. Here, they could
relax and enjoy themselves as affected by the education system, and for
the majority of the country, people agreed and found themselves quite well
off and secure for the first time. The elements who didn't belong were
taken care of in other ways, without the self-punishing rage of the
earlier skinhead movement, who were 'held up for valour' but never imitat-
ed, as there was no need for violence in this very tight American society.

There were many discussions among themselves as to the best way to do
things now that they were in their hands finally, and they decided that
everyone should have their 'head examined' as to their thinking and their
support of war-time effort that was always being made. It was a chance to
not 'spare the rod' but apply it everywhere to our conquered foes who were
waiting for a chance to participate in the 'good life.' What can I say but
I did approve of all of this because the 'liberal bad-boys' were now out
of power and we could get a good education in our fundamental values from
which the United States was carved from. It was a remarkable time and it
still is since those 'foes at bay' have nothing to gain any more by giving
in to the 'powers out there' when we offer then a first-class security and
not having to vote.

Yes this is a 'good time to give in to the skinheads who are securely
running the country and know what's best for us.' I whole-heartedly
support this conclusion which is the best thing for many people and should
be supported by everyone.
