Please Freedom Loving Americans, do not fall into this trap; the same trap into which Tucker Carlson has fallen.
Fox News host Tucker Carlson said he believes Congress should pass legislation banning kids from owning smartphones, citing research showing that smartphone use is harmful to children's development.
Carlson compared the hypothetical ban to age restrictions for purchasing cigarettes, saying that smartphone addiction in children can even be life-threatening.
"Smartphone use makes your kids sadder, slower, and more isolated, and over time, can kill them," Carlson said
The issue is not the use of smartphones. I have no reason to argue with the study Carlson quotes. The harm smartphones seem to be causing could be spread to areas beyond those sited by Carlson. The issue is; whose responsibility are these children, the parents or the governments.
The collectivist (Marxist, communist, socialist, progressive, Democrat – all virtually the same) have advocated from their inception that children are the responsibility of government and not the parents. The collectivist takes this position because they know the responsible party will also be the party whose principles and ideals the child is most likely to absorb as their own.
This is the reason the collectivist movement has always advocated for child care from the earliest possible age. Yes, the collectivist claims their intentions are altruistic, but history shows their intentions are to be able to indoctrinate the child into believing that collectivism is good, and individualism is bad.
The American public has come to accept that the government has a larger and larger role in the upbringing of a child while the role of the parents is less and less. This is exactly what Marx and Lenin advocated. Marx and Lenin understood that to bring about the classless society they desired, conformity of the people to the collectivist ideology was critical. If they controlled the child, they could bring about their desired classless and conforming society. If the parents played the intended role of the parent, children would grow and have different ideas on the role government should play in society. This freedom of thought results in is a society with differing beliefs. This is critical for individualism, a society of free and independent people, and it is death to those aspiring for the collectivist society that must be totally conforming and totally equal.
What Carlson is advocating is another step to lessen the critical role parents should be playing in their child’s growth and augmenting the role of government. The position of replacing the role of the parent by increasing the role of government is detrimental to a free and independent people and aids the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) movement to fundamentally transforming the United States into a Marxist totalitarian state.
Carlson should be using the study to alert the parent to the negative aspects of the overuse of smartphones by their children and encouraging the parents to play their intended role in molding their children and maintaining the family as the primary unit for the development of children.
The role of government must be a limited role if we are to be a free and independent nation. Our founders did not include the raising of children as one of the powers of government. The raising of children was one of the powers that were retained for the people per the 10h Amendment. We the people, must play our role while the government must play its limited role per the constitution if we are not to be fundamentally transformed into a Marxist totalitarian state under the control of the Dictatorship of the Proletariat.
