When teachers begin asking children about their parents’ political beliefs and affiliations, the problem of State interference has gone too far. And when children are encouraged to be ashamed of their parents’ beliefs, it has all too many ramifications and reminders of modern history’s political purges and darkest days.
This is not a localized issue. Indoctrination is taking place in schools all over the world. It’s happening in the UK to children of Brexiteers, it’s happening in the US to children of Christians, and it’s happening throughout the Islamic world in Madrassas, shaping young minds into weapons of hate.
The motivations of the “educators” are varied, but the one common thread is that they wish to influence the future by using children as tools, regardless the cost to the children. And this is actually even more insidious than it sounds. The teachers are taking a gamble that their own beliefs will be the dominant ideological system in the future. But they are not betting their own money, they are betting the future happiness, social acceptance, employment prospects and mental health of your children. And in the case of college professors who encourage students to violently protest, they are betting your children’s’ lives and freedom.
