O Big Brother Thou Art

by Dave Miller

In 1924 on the US House floor Congressman Fritz G. Lanham of Texas read this “Beatitude” in opposition to child-labor laws.

  • Consider the Federal agent in the field; he toils not, nor does he spin; and yet I say unto you that even Solomon in all his populous household was not arrayed with powers like one of these.


  • Children, obey your agents from Washington, for this is right.


  • Honor thy father and thy mother, for the Government has created them but a little lower than the Federal agent. Love, honor, and disobey them.


  • Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, tell it to thy father and mother and let them do it.


  • Six days shalt thou do all thy rest, and on the seventh day thy parents shall rest with thee.


  • Go to the bureau officer, thou sluggard; consider his ways and be idle.


  • Toil, thou farmer’s wife; thou shalt have no servant in thy house, nor let thy children help thee.


  • And all thy children shall be taught of the Federal agent, and great shall be the peace of thy children.


  • Thy children shall rise up and call the Federal agent blessed.

Maybe George Orwell read this speech and built the outline for his book “Nineteen Eighty-Four”. The essence of the theme runs parallel between the two.

This is the underlining principle that our government wants to bring into our lives. That we feel secure in them. This means more power to the one in charge. Power is more coveted than money.

They can only take the power that we give them. Even if they take it by force with laws, never allow them to take your freedom from your mind.
