... But It's For the Children!

Posted by The_Chef On 12:15 PM 1 comments

And the brainwashing of kids continues...

Though, I should state that this is less of brainwashing and actually a very very scary way to control whether children are getting the "right" kind of parenting.

So what happens when some parent isn't teaching their child the appropriate "state approved" behavior patterns. What happens when those parents teach their kids to question authority and always ask "WHY?"

This is kind of ... frightening to say the least.

The Pre-K Act poses similar concerns about government trumping parents' rights.

"Once they are involved, they don't have any say over curriculum," she said. "There's plenty of evidence of preschool curriculum that deals with issues that have nothing to do with a child's academic development – like gender, gender identity, careers, environmentalism, multiculturalism, feminism and all of that – things that don't amount to a hill of beans as far as a child learning how to read."

In Soviet Russia the state actively tried to remove the parents from the development of their children in order to make them more productive and politically compliant members of the Motherland. If you see no parallels between these policies and the Soviet ones, please do us all a favor and stick your head in a meat grinder.
