The collectivists (Marxism, communism, socialism, progressive, Democrat – all virtually the same) believe that all people must conform to one ideology. This is what all totalitarian movements have advocated. Those who believe in a free and independent society, a society free from the state determining how an individual is to live their life and what they are to think, believes in diversity of thought.
A key difference between those who believe in total conformity under a totalitarian government and those who believe in freedom and independence for the individual where the individual determines their own life and their own thought, is who is primarily responsible for the development of a child; the family or the state. Those who believe in a totalitarian state believe the state should be responsible for the development of the child while those who believe in freedom and independence have advocated for a strong family unit with the development of the child being the responsibility of the family.
Today we are hearing calls from the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) party, the same calls we have heard from those who favor totalitarianism throughout history; place the child under the care of the state so they can be indoctrinated to the collectivist ideology at the earliest possible age.
"I believe in universal child care and early preschool," Elizabeth Warren said. "Zero to 5, let's make that investment."
Kirsten Gillibrand, "The astronomical cost of childcare is a quiet crisis of our economy. It's outrageous to make parents choose between providing for their kids or caring for their kids. We need universal, high-quality, affordable childcare options for every family, period."
Kamala Harris said, "We've got to have universal pre-K so that our babies can start out with a leg up. Associated with this issue is affordable child care and a national policy for that."
Karl Marx said, “The education of all children, from the moment that they can get along without a mother's care, shall be in state institutions.”
Vladmir Lenin said, “We must make the young into a generation of Communists. Children, like soft wax, are very malleable and they should be molded into good Communists. We must rescue children from the harmful influence of the family… We must nationalize them. From the earliest days of their little lives, they must find themselves under the beneficent influence of Communist schools… To oblige the mother to give her child to the Soviet state – that is our task.”
Parents, who believe in freedom and independence and wish for their children to determine their own lives and have their own thoughts, must take full responsibility for their children. These parents must teach these children how to be independent, how to be non-conformists, and how to evaluate situations and not accept bumper sticker slogans such as “Climate Change is Destroying our Planet” without looking at all the facts including the research of those who disagree with collectivist conformists.
If our nation is to never become a socialist nation as President Trump has stated, then our parents must accept the responsibility of instilling the principle of independence in the minds of their children and not acquiescing to the demand of the state that the state have complete control of their child from the earliest possible age. Yes parents, keep your children at home with family, read to your children, be a positive role model for your child, find schools that educate and do not indoctrinate – this means you will not have your children attend public schools – be an active and instrumental part of your child’s education and upbringing, and discuss the events of the day around the FAMILY dinner time even before your child can walk or talk. YOUR CHILD IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY AND NOT THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE STATE. FREEDOM AND INDEPENDENCE REQUIRE YOU FULFILL YOUR RESPONSIBILITY.
