You are brought up from a very young age to listen to authority figures. You are told to do as you are told. You must adhere to the rules set in place by higher authority at all times. You must OBEY your parents, your teachers, cops, priests, coaches, government, and everyone else.
You are to do as you are told. You must respect your elders you little punks. You must let them have dominion over your brain and obey their every command.
Now, I agree that this method of rearing children will make them docile and polite, but is there problems with this method? Do these authority figures who hold dominion over your mind ever abuse their power?
A look at the Stanford Study is interesting, if you never have, basically a scientist put innocent people into a prison and labelled one half as "guards" and the other half of people as "inmates" and told the "guards" to keep the "inmates" in their cells and to behave. This was a totally arbitrary study yet even in this test the power slipped into the "guards" heads quickly and they began abusing the "inmates."

Another example of arbitrary obeying of authority figures is the odd and disgusting story of the "MacDonald's Strip Search Prank Call." A former policeman who was intrigued about how people will blindly obey authority, made a "prank" where he called up Macdonald's (a company who's greed has netted them billions of dollars yet have paid their employees minimum wage throughout its existence, and who's hard military rule system trains its teenage employees to OBEY) in Mount Washington, Kentucky. The man claimed one of the restaurant's female teenage employees was a wanted felon (this was totally untrue) and told the manager to detain her until police arrived. The manager chose to believe this ridiculous order from a stranger on the phone who claimed to be an authority figure and locked the girl up in the office. Next, the caller told the manager to strip the girl and to make her give a blowjob to her husband (who was called in to help keep the teen prisoner at MacDonald's). The poor girl being told from an early age to respect her elders and obey authority obeys the command and gives the man a blowjob. Is that fucked up or what?

(the wiki says there was a film made about this called "Compliance" recently. Might be interesting.)
Now let's get to the main intended topic...
This man was a football coach who in his leisure time enjoyed raping the children he coached as one of his hobbies. He raped all kinds of kids from 11 year olds to teenagers and enjoyed every minute of it.
The coach figure is in charge, he tells the kids what to do and they must obey him. Jerry is not the first coach authority figure who got a kick out of raping his young players. Grahame James, the hockey coach, comes to mind. James raped kids who went on to be successful NHL players.
|Respect Your Elders|
Picture this, the 68 year old Jerry Sandusky giving a young football player some extra training by taking the 11 year old child into the showers and sodomizing him. Repeatedly shoving his disgusting old dick into the poor child's anus. Isn't that a completely gruesome and sickening thought? Isn't even more sickening that it actually happened?
To all you people shouting "respect your elders," ask yourself, should the children who were raped by Jerry Sandusky have shown respect to Sandusky while being raped by him just because his raping dick is 68 years old? Get fucking real.
Using the age of 68 as a sort of segway, let's move on to Karen Klein. Klein has been saturated into the mainstream media for the last two weeks over an incident where very mean kids (aged 11-13) call her names on a school bus.
It's a horrible video, it reminds everyone of high school and how terrible that Puberty Prison was. Due to the shocking nature, the words used by the boys, and the fact that millions of people were made fun of in high school (and could relate to her)...an internet drive to compensate Klein for her suffering has hit close to $700,000 bucks and still climbing fast.
The only thing I would like to add to this over-saturated news story is that Karen Klein in this situation was an authority figure. She was placed on the bus to maintain order and the kids were expected to obey her commands just like they are expected to obey every other authority figure.
I do not believe that due to her age she should be considered "elderly" and thusly capable of no wrong doing. By that logic, Jerry Sandusky (also 68) should have been acquitted for raping those kids because he is also over 65 and an "elderly" person. She was placed in a position of authority over children, she was not a random passerby who just happened to be riding the school bus that day.
I don't want to defend these stupid mean kids, but I just want to pose the following questions out loud:
Would the kids in the Klein video have let themselves be raped by Jerry Sandusky? Or would they have kicked him in the nuts until he was unconscious, laughed at his old ass dick while he was on the ground, and maybe stole his wallet before they ran off to safety?
Would the kids in the Klein video have let themselves be held hostage in a MacDonald's and let themselves be forced to give a blowjob to some fat disgusting piece of shit? Or would they have kicked the guy square in the dick, pushed the retarded MacDonald's manager Donna Summers to ground and got out of that fucking grease pit prison?
I don't know. Sometimes being mean is a very good self preservation mechanism. I can't see those unruly kids letting themselves be taken advantage of by abusive authority figures. As much as I feel for Karen Klein (though I did not donate, I'm happy she has made 700K off of being called names), I do think that children need to develop non-violent methods of defending themselves against the onslaught of arbitrary authority figures placed upon them.
I'm not defending the kids, I just want to bring a new view point to these recent news stories involving two very different 68 year old authority figures.
By the way, was there ever any internet drive to raise money for the kids who were raped by Sandusky? No. In fact the only public outcry concerning the matter was a candle light vigil held for....(not the victims)...but for the head of Penn State Football Joe Paterno, because poor "Joe Pa" was getting negative press concerning the Sandusky sex abuse scandal.
Edit: (September 09/2012):
I recommended in this article that students should kick authority figures in the groin as a good method of counter-attack. Recently, a really good video of a little girl kicking her teacher in the dick has serviced on the net. I don't know for sure if it is real or staged but this is what I was talkin' about. You go girl...
