Institutional Failure: Sex, Cover-ups and Penn State

with 25 comments

To begin to wrap your mind around the Penn State scandal involving Jerry Sandusky the defensive coordinator of Penn State and the cover-up participated in by the university, I’d refer you to the article link below for a foundation understanding to the sex trade industry that is a global problem and is participated in by a majority of our population. It is so wide-spread that you dear readers are also probably guilty to some extent.


It should come as no shock that Jerry Sandusky was engaging in such behavior out in the open and using some of the children of the Second Mile Foundation for his own sexual pleasure and prostituting them out to rich donors of the university. If you understand that such things are happening right out in the open, yet do nothing to change it, you are one of the millions who “chose” not to see and are guilty of serious crimes that cannot be forgiven in church on Sunday’s. The pain of this action is that when we are finally forced to look at something that is very painful, the result can be tragically life shattering. In the Penn State case, the university relies so intensely on the football program to recruit new students to their university that they put a blind eye to the conduct of its officials. This happened at Ohio State as well. See my article on that unfortunate situation here, where I use clips from a movie to explain the problem of university politics and public perception.


Specific to the Penn State Program, and just how sinister the situation truly is, listen to Scott Sloan and Tracy Jones of 700 WLW talk about the “time line” of the scandal, and who knew what and when they knew it. Also listen to one of the students who participated in the riots at Penn State when it was announced that the iconic Joe Paterno was fired from his long coveted position.

You can see here the kind of rioting that was going on at Penn State, which that student from the broadcast played a part. Scientifically speaking, it is interesting to examine the tribal nature of these students in their acts of violence, triggered by the announcement that Paterno had in fact been terminated.

It is amazing that these students had such a reaction, and seem to care nothing for the children who were raped and abused by the long arm of cover-up perpetrated by the very popular football program’s pedophile assistant coach and his co-workers.

But this is not specific to Penn State, although it’s one of the worst we’ve come along in quite some time. This is a case of institutional failure precipitated by a focus on sacrificing the individual identity of the participants for the sum of the collective life of the institution.

As mentioned, Ohio State just went though this, although at a lower level of offense. Public schools too are prone to such scandals. Within 15 miles of my home over three very large public school districts had similar scandals that were successfully covered-up to protect the integrity of the institution. The Mason School System had a cover-up in regard to the Stacy Schuler case.


Lakota just had a similar string of scandals that were completely suppressed by the institution.


And Fairfield City Schools had to be investigated by the FBI involving their school board and a private businessman, which is summed up in this article wrapping all three scandals into one abridgment.


So why do these crimes go unchecked? Why are these things allowed to happen? Well, it’s because our society has been taught, and encouraged to embrace collectivism as an ultimate salvation when in our hearts we desire freedom. This creates a duality in our natures that is always seeking to balance itself. We may use charity to satisfy our collective desire for acceptance, then to pay homage to our individuality we may cater to the dirty sex of our inner desires to bring balance to our lives. The trouble is that our individual natures are applied toward the wrong outlets, and this creates these scandals.

The individual will always seek to obtain what it desires. But due to our collective attempts in social respects we push our deepest darkest desires into the murky corners of our reality. We cheat on our spouses, we embark on pornographic journeys, and even the worst of us do what Sandusky and Schuler engaged in. The more embedded the individual is into a system where the individual is suppressed, the worse these crimes are.

So it is the fault of the institutions themselves. It is the false perception that the individual exists for the institution when in fact the institution exists for the individual. If the institution does not serve the needs of individuality and freedom, then it can be said to be corrupt.

Institutions like Penn State, or Ohio State or even Lakota and Mason use football and other sports to unite the collective minds of their benefactors, and once intimate with the institutional system, individuals have shown that they are prone to ignore overwhelming evidence of impropriety so that their collective identities associated with the institution can be preserved. It is not uncommon for a normal American male to know the sports statistics of their favorite sports player, even if the player is only a high school or college football player, than to know the specific qualities of their own children, because the clueless father is in service to the institution instead of himself. And in order to rectify his loss in individual needs, he seeks it in sexual depravity. This is an endemic problem and is most of the reason why cover-ups continue in large programs like Penn State, because many people know they too are guilty of similar acts not just in action, but in thought, and they are therefore not in a position to cast judgment. They are slaves to the institutions which control them, even if passively with their alma mater sweatshirt. (By the way, do you know what alma mater means? (Latin: “nourishing mother”),

I view such people simply as slaves. I would not trade one second of my independence with them for financial security which is the reason many of them trade their freedom away in the first place. I would actively seek to bring down and destroy any institution that assists in covering up such impropriety as seen at Penn State, and I’d do it without sorrow. If the institution does not serve the individual needs of the participants, then it is bad and should be dismantled. Because always, if you lift up the rug, you will find the kind of activity engaged in at Penn State. Such crimes are endemic to all institutions, every single one. It doesn’t matter if it’s a college, a labor union, a government, or even military activity, if the individual is crushed to serve the institution, then the institution is evil. There is no mediation in such a statement. See this article for more evidence:


The results of a crushed spirit is sexual deprivation and broken individuals who aren’t fit to lead their own families, which then breed a society of lost children who will sign up to attend the college of their fathers and mothers to pay homage to the Gods of college football like Joe Paterno, and when that God falls, those individuals will be lost and will seek to destroy the threats to their collective society, because they have lost their ability to think within their assimilation into institutional control, and riots will follow as the only measure to redeem themselves from the lost identity they discover upon learning that the institution has failed them.

Finally, for more evidence of this tragedy in various degrees view these articles for yourself, and examine the contents carefully, than consider where in the scheme of things your mind falls. Because in the end, only you can save yourself from the forces that seek to corrupt your minds.



If you know something is wrong and you fail to act, you are at fault also, and the people at Penn State are all just a little bit guilty of putting on the blinders for the thrill of a victory in the games of Saturday and an alliance to the institutions of collectivism.

  1. Yes, you are right. It is the collective. The collective union, university, school or even church that tolerates aberrant behavior because “one bad apple” will embarrass them all. So they cover-up, hide and refuse to discuss or report what they know full well is evil. That evil is usually perpetrated against the children they use to promote themselves and their incomes. Even the Boy Scouts of America has been covering up predators in their midst. Sick! Sick! Sick!

    Sadly, it is those of us who try to warn, to educate to speak out against the evil that are demonized. You see, the evil ones have more power, more money, more followers than the good. On Tuesday, many qualified candidates and issues lost because the money followed the “collective.” For example, “the progressives took over Cincinnati City Council. The union won. The homosexual agenda won. So the results will be that more and more people will move out of Cincinnati. Those people will be the ones that refuse to pay any more taxes to a defunct and corrupt city with failing schools. They will move to West Chester, Mason, Little Miami and Mason. In a few short years these communities will be more corrupt than they are today because the “city folks” will demand the same things they demanded in the city. Cincinnati will soon be the Detroit on the Ohio.

    We are all on the big ride to Rome. All the while the fiddlers played.

    • It’s always nice to hear from the GateKeeper! You always understand!!!!! : )

      • It’s sad and frustrating. On one hand, thank goodness there are people like you who are willing to share your thoughts and educate so many…..I learn something new everytime I read one of your articles. Yet this behavior of coverup, then demonization seems destined to continue! Even when you have actual victims and insiders come to you with irrefutable facts and details, they (those who are protected by the unions) turn away even more sharply.
        Aren’t schools for the children? Does anyone at these schools care what happens to the children? Whether it’s a college, high school, public or private, supposedly these folks went into this field because they care about children.
        And those of us who dare to question exactly what new funds are being used for are scolded for ” not supporting our community and children. Sadly, I am discovering it is quite the opposite- I’m beggining to realize it is those mommies in my neighborhood, those lemmings who actually believe (I just can’t believe how stupid and gullible people can be) that supporting issue #2 would actually leave us unprotected during a 911 call, or those who really buy that even though in Lakota the cost per pupil has actually gone down, and the dustrict continues to receive excellence awards, that if we don’t vote yes for the levy that we are letting our kids down, THESE are the people responsible for the mess were in.
        And let the demonization continue. It allows the money to keep flowing, and allows the bad behavior to continue.
        Wondering what it will take to wake people up…..

  2. Thank you. You always make me think.

  3. What Rich just said is at the root of all of this. I’ve only been alive since the 60’s, so I don’t have any first-hand knowledge of what the American culture was like before that. I only know what I’ve observed in my life. I know that when I was in school in the ’70s through the ’90s being smart was very uncool. There was always the occasional scholar/athlete who broke that mold and was a cool jock and got good grades. For the most part though, being smart was definitely not cool. I’m sure it’s just as bad now if not worse as our culture has been dumbed down. I think it’s even worse for black kids; learning is considered “white” and the peer pressure to join the illiterate gang is tremendous. The result is that America is turning into “Idiocracy”.

    I’ve heard the subject debated on many radio talk shows over the years: are Americans smart or dumb? It’s a strange phenomenon. America has the highest standard of living on the planet but we keep hearing how many other countries children vastly outpace ours in education. It seems like a classic paradox. The way I’ve always explained it is by the same way I explain many things in life: the 80/20 rule. In this case, I think that 80% of the country is being carried by 20%. Ayn Rand was right.

    As for last Tuesday’s election, here’s my thoughts. We always hear that there’s 20-30% of voters on the extreme left and 20-30% on the extreme right, with a big 40-60% in the middle that considers themselves “undecided” or “moderate”. This isn’t even counting the fact that something like half of the eligible voters are even registered, and in some elections only 25% of those turn out, which is pathetic. Anyway, as for the “undecideds”…the ones that political advisors like Karl Rove tell their clients that they can deliver on election day…I have no respect for them. I know and work with many of them. Many of them are easily led lemmings, easy prey for the collective mentality. I have more respect for a Chomsky-reading lefty; at least they know what they believe and have chosen a side. If you’re in the “middle” and can’t make a clear difference between a conservative and liberal candidate, and put your finger in the wind on election day to determine your position then you don’t deserve to vote. You have no core values.

    The media has made people like sax-playing Bill Clinton into cool heroes to the uneducated. I know many people that voted for Obama because it was the cool thing to do. It all goes back to the same problem.

    Also, being uneducated leads to using your emotions to make decisions. We’ve seen way too much of that lately.

    I have no idea how we get out of this mess. How do you reverse something like this? How can you make being smart “cool”? It’s much easier to appeal to the prurient and base instincts, and then demand that the playing field be leveled by taking from the rich and giving to the poor “cool” but uneducated masses.


    November 12, 2011 at 12:57 pm

    • I think you just stated something Phil that I think about 90% of my day, making being smart and good “cool.” Young boys and girls need to aspire to Superman, not Pimp Daddy, or Diddy Kong or whatever those damn kids like these days.


      November 12, 2011 at 1:50 pm

    • I’ve been pondering your question on how to make smart “cool.”
      I think for the most part it comes with experience and age although having a military upbringing, I had to fall inline with my very early introduction to politics starting with my father making me watch Nixon’s resignation and then having to be schooled on the situation. Not a bad thing but at that young age..I hated it. Little did I know I was being groomed to be a deep thinker and pay attention. I couldn’t give a perspective at that age, all I could do was ask questions. I was then a registered democrat at 18. My father about had heart failure. That didn’t last long.

      I recently attended the Kasich rally in Liberty Township which to be honest bored me to the core. I didn’t enjoy it at all and I could feel the eyes upon me as I stood there and did not jump up and down or woohoo at every turn. Clearly rallies are not my bag. I would have much rather been at a 9.12 meeting on preparation and learning something and kicked myself later. I came home empty. I hired and pay John to do a job and it ends there. I did however take a friend who is a Vietnam Vet and watching him was all the rally I needed. Point being, It wasn’t the “cool” thing to do but who cares? I’m a bit of a rebel anyway and move in my own direction. It’s liberating and if these kids could experience that, they would run with it. They then could be the movers and John Galts of the future.
      As to how they get there…who knows.Turn off the boob tube, put down the Xbox and get out and experience life. Break away from the norm. There is a whole generation that missed the boat on that. They’ll pay for it later.
      I’d say stop cutting God out but with the full on assault on Christianity, it’s definately not cool. Sad.

      I have liberal friends and I do because they also made a choice and stand by it. We have interesting converations but they don’t hate like the MSLSD’ers of the world.
      I believe you have to stop the leftists and progressives from indoctrinating our kids and that starts and ends with parents. As long as they put full faith in what’s being taught, continue to pass levies on the premise of “it’s for the children” nothing will ever change. Sadly, they “got” to them and we took huge steps back this election. This is an ongoing fight that makes me ill.

      I am very concerned about the “cool to vote for Obama” situation. We’ll lost them to the social media last time and this election will be no different.

  4. [...] As to that last part, worry not. I have been hunted, and I’ve hunted all my life. When I was younger, my life was very much like that song. Once I was married, my wife was able to calm me down enough to focus my energy intellectually, so i… [...]

  5. Phil you are right about the inner city kids tuning out. A third grade teacher (CPS) told me that if they didn’t get to the kids by the 4th grade, they were lost. She said, by then they are looking up to the 6th graders who were already in gangs, pregnant and involved in anything except school. The parents are rarely involved. Even in the 3rd grade most of her time was spent with discipline problems. The few who wanted to learn didn’t get the time she would have loved to give them. School has become a social time for the kids. Time to meet their friends and have fun. The really smart kids give up because they aren’t encouraged and recognized. So the result is that our country has become vunerable to charlatans, unions, political party rhetoric and, yes, community organizers.

    A contributing factor is that teacher tenure has made it almost impossible to fire the really bad apples. The ugly cover-ups occur in all districts. I have an article from the EAG foundation that spells out the case of a band director that engaged in illegal sexual contact with a student. He was asked to resign and given a shining recommendation for future employment, based on a written request from the local teachers union.

    A few years later he was arrested for having sex with another student at a neighboring high school. The administrators from that district said they had hired him based on the recommendation from the previous districts administrators.

    The term “dance of the lemons” has become synonymous with the concept of teacher tenure.

  6. Ive been saying for many years that until “shame” comes back into our society, things will continue to go downhill. There is simply no shame or modesty these days.
    When I was in high school, despite the fact that it was in a tougher part of NY, we would have never thought of doing 3/4 of the things that are completely acceptable these days? There would have never been for example, a baby shower for a pregnant student, and as far as a program to accommodate those kids–there was none….you left town, in shame and came back presumably to try your hand at being a young person again. Oh wait, “pregnant and 16″ and “Teen Mom” have made it cool to do this.
    Ugh, not sure why I bother.

  13. [...] In the levy problem of my local school district, the leader of the last pro levy effort threatened through media reports that the school superintendent whom we just hired at over quarter million dollars in yearly compensation and benefits will take an active role in the next levy attempt. You see, instead of acting like a company CEO, which we are all told is the reason superintendents are paid so much money, more in fact than the governor of Ohio, and actually cutting costs, renegotiating union contracts and other real measures that any CEO would engage in, the superintendent at this school is at least a double dipper, maybe even a triple dipper, meaning she’s retired from other school districts and is receiving retirement income from all those schools also while working for the school in my district. This makes her very wealthy purely on tax payer money. In reality she in no way engages in any management of the real costs. In the end, the district hired her to pass a school levy, like a hired gun in a Wild West town to gun down opposition to the tax increases the public school plans to implement (LOOT). And when she and I meet in the next campaign she’ll get paid over $250,000 a year to do what I do in the media during my spare time for free. This whole scam of superintendents being bought and paid for by the unions with this double-dipping retirement ability, and internal hiring practices etc. were created in the Ohio legislature by union lobbyists, so they would also know they have a friend on the other side of the negotiating table.

  14. [...] The evidence comes from the academics themselves, that their system is an utter failure. They read the same book as I, yet they took from it collectively, thousands upon thousands of those academic idiots one meaning, and that is that Thoreau told them to go to jail to protest an injustice. But the jail was the byproduct of not paying taxes, which was the original message those pretentious cowards ignored. And if they missed that one very important point in one book that is only 30 pages long, who on earth are they to be expected to get anything more complicated correct! This is why I do not trust the Department of Education to instruct our children to brush their teeth, let alone guide them on a life quest that will take them through the adventure of existence. No more taxes means just that, and for every one of those 103 schools that come back again to the public for yet more taxes, they are nothing but robbers with the weapon of force, with the political machine at their backs to empower them to take and take and take until the money is taken out of your pocket and placed into theirs with a smile on your face. And you will smile and like it because they will tell you to. Oh, if you are good and kiss their ostentatious asses enough they may smile and shake your hand at a football game on Friday night!

And money would be saved because consultants and attorney fees wouldn’t be needed at every turn. Lakota is dealing with the public education sickness of organized labor who believes that the jobs at the school exist for the employees and not the children we send there. This leaves public school administrators to be lured into the profession because of the extremely lucrative compensation, but to avoid any real responsibility by delegating tasks off to subordinates to keep the hot potato out of their hands when something goes wrong.
