Homeschooling and socialism ~ By Samuel Blumenfeld

Commentary from WorldNetDaily
Dr. Samuel Blumenfeld By Samuel Blumenfeld Posted: November 28, 2009 ~ 1:00 am Eastern © 2009 WorldNetDaily Is homeschooling compatible with socialism and vice-versa? Apparently not, for homeschooling means parental control of education, and that is anathema to socialists. The most important institution in a socialist society is a government-owned and -controlled education system in which children can be indoctrinated to willingly accept state control of their lives. Public-school teachers are not freedom fighters. They are government employees who must obey the mandates of the state. In a socialist system, the state owns the children. Parents are merely breeders, and since homeschoolers tend to like large families, the population-control socialists will no doubt try to abolish homeschooling. In communist Russia, which was known as the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, the state owned the means of production and just about everything else. Farmers could not own their own land. They were forced to work on collective farms, totally subservient to the dictates of the government. In fact, the government was called the Dictatorship of the Proletariat. The official religion was atheism. That perverse regime lasted 75 years and finally collapsed because it was so completely at odds with human nature. Cuba and North Korea are totalitarian states in which there is no individual freedom to speak of. China, which is ruled by the Chinese Communist Party, has adopted a limited capitalist economy in order to help it grow economically. But all newspapers and publishing companies are controlled by the government. Freedom of speech does not exist, and religion is tightly controlled. Homeschooling obviously has no place in that kind of regime. And now in America, we have a socialist president in the White House and a Congress controlled by the Marxist left wing of the Democratic party. These socialists already have a government-controlled education system which is turning out young Americans who don’t know the difference between socialism and capitalism, or a democracy and a constitutional republic. They have been so totally dumbed down that they are willing to accept the chains of socialist control over their lives as inevitable. And since it promises economic security – the security of enslavement – why fight it? READ FULL STORY >
