The indoctrination of our children

...It is common knowledge that the way to change society is not through the ruling minds of adults, but to indoctrinate the minds of our children. Adults can only be controlled through fear.

History proves this to be correct in a number of circumstances. In Nazi Germany the Nazi Police State ensured loyalty through the children by developing a policy of indoctrinating them via the Hitler Youth movement. Time and planning spent on this brought a suitable reward for Nazism.

Some adults clearly supported the Nazis, but a substantial number of Germans did not support Hitler and the Nazis. Realizing that these people were a potential problem to the party, the Nazis developed a policy of intimidation. Fear and hate for anyone who opposed the party became policy for those who supported Hitler. The wrong comment overheard by a Nazi official or loyalist more often than not led to serious consequences.

The Nazi police state worked on the rule that if you said nothing, no harm, could come to you. If you had doubts about the way the socialist party was conducting business, you kept them to yourself - or paid the price.

In Nazi Germany the police were allowed to arrest people on suspicion that they were about to do wrong. The various local police units drew up a list of people in their locality who might be suspected of being "Enemies of the State". This list was given to the Gestapo - the Secret Police. The Gestapo had the power to do as it liked. Its leader - Reinhard Heydrich - was one of the most feared man in Nazi Germany. His immediate chief was Heinrich Himmler. Both men ran their respective branches with ruthless efficiency.

The Nazis were also guilty of slaughtering over 6,000,000 Jews.

In the Soviet Union, the communist state began to instill societal socialist values as early as preschool. These indoctrinations included story-telling, drawing, music, games, and outdoor play, which were highly structured and consistently conducted in groups, fostering a sense of belonging to the collective, the primacy of the needs of the group over those of the individual, and the preference for competition among groups rather than individuals. Political indoctrination at this level consisted of songs and slogans, celebration of national holidays, and stories about Lenin and other heroes of the Bolshevik Revolution. Preschoolers were also taught respect for authority, patriotism, obedience, discipline, and order. Later studies, specifically in 1988 with the publication in a Soviet newspaper of an article titled "Attention: Children in Trouble!", brought to light a crisis emerging, stating that the teachers and other staff were poorly trained; and children's health was suffering because of inadequate medical care. Children were entering first grade unprepared intellectually and physically. More than 50 percent were "neurotic" as a result of the indoctrinations.

As with the Nazis, the adult population was controlled by fear and the policy of festering hate against anyone who opposed the system.

Stalin murdered 7,000,000 Ukrainians 1932-1933.

The Chinese and North Koreans use similar methods today. The deaths caused by China during their totalitarian reign is as follows:

8,427,000 Victims: The Totalization Period
7,474,000 Victims: Collectivization and "The Great Leap Forward"
10,729,000 Victims: The Great Famine and Retrenchment Period
7,731,000 Victims: The "Cultural Revolution"
874,000 Victims: Liberalization

North Korean induced deaths are as follows:

Since 1948, when the Communist regime began, the number of deaths in North Korea as a direct result of the dictators ranges from 710,000 to slightly over 3,500,000.

Radical Islam is well documented for their part in not only forcing their violent ideology on their children, but having them fight the war with weapons in their hands as well. They are taught early to fear their religious leaders, and hate the infidels.

Recently, after viewing an advertisment aimed at Tom McClintock in California, accusing him of being against women and their right to choose, my nearly 16 year old daughter says to me, "I don't know why anyone would want to vote for him."

Her young mind keyed in on what she has been taught by the school system, and MTV. She quoted the liberal party line perfectly. The Democrats tell everyone that by opposing abortion a Republican is against a woman's right to choose (rather than taking into account the complexity of the issue in reference to the child's right to life, father's rights as a parent, the medical issues that arise, the moral issues that rise, etc).

Though these are extreme examples, the right to choose argument can be quite effective. Arresting murderers takes away their right to choose murder. Arresting terrorists takes away their right to choose terror. Arresting rapists takes away their right to choose rape.

Don't get me wrong. Choices are a valuable thing and everyone has a right to make choices in their lives. But this issue is not only about a woman's choice. This issue is about abortion. But then the left spews out such things because they wish to distract the voter from the other issues. Democrats wish to raise taxes any way they can. In California that means dismantling Prop. 13 and raising property taxes, raising income taxes, sales taxes, higher taxes on small businesses, higher taxes on family farms, new taxes on auto repair, legal and accounting services, a new cigarette tax, a new tax on oil which will raise gas prices, and so on. And worse of all, they plan to raise these taxes with hidden clauses that puts you at risk and puts them in the money. While they are at it they oppose a proposition in California requiring parents to be contacted if a minor goes in for an abortion.

Their "government can solve everything" attitude is being forced upon our children in the schools, and the leftist attitudes of cheapening life which has in turn led our society into becoming a throw away society (throw away marriage with a simple divorce, throw away God with pulling Him out of all public places, throw away morality by dimming the line between right and wrong, and throw away life with the senseless murder of unborn children and the support of assisted suicide) is being pushed upon them by the schools and MTV.

Yes, I agree, as parents we need to teach our children the proper values as we see fit, but it's like pulling a cart up a hill as boulders are being loaded into it.

The left is securing their future by developing a policy of indoctrinating our children through the schools with this idea of political correctness and cry for "rights" rather than responsibilities. They use hate to push forward their agendas (without ever really providing specifics) by spreading hate for Bush and his policies, and then projecting that hate upon the entire political right. They use fear by condemning anyone that disagrees with them as narrow minded and ignorant (as characterized by the actions and words of well known liberals such as Rosie O'Donnell, Jimmy Carter, and Jon Stewart). Fear and hate for anyone who opposes the Democratic party has become policy for those who support liberalism. A wrong comment overheard by a left-wing loyalist more often than not leads to serious verbal attacks, and in Hollyweird can result in serious business consequences. Various members of Hollywood, the main stream media, and the Democratic Party have drawn up lists of people in their medium locality who might be suspected of being enemies of the party and are, as a result, attacked on the airwaves, often ridiculed through the use of tainted information, and untrue facts.

The party, of course, will never speak of specifics. Whatever the right supports, they oppose as a matter of principle. If you don't like the way the Democratic Party is conducting its business, you are required to keep quiet or pay the consequences. Freedom of speech applies to everyone just as long as that speech agrees with the left.

In politics the Democratic Party is allowed to attack candidates and public figures simply upon suspicion that there may be a political strategy in doing so that will advance the liberal agenda.

Oh, and the left is guilty of (through their voting records and legislation) the murders of 46 million unborn children per year.

That's not name-calling. That's the facts.

Gosh. Is it me? Or does the liberal left sound a lot like the Nazis, Marxists, and Islamofascists?

How about rooting for America, you liberal scumbags!

And read Bushwack's Socialist=Liberal

Since I'm against abortion, does that mean I'm anti woman too? Interesting...never considered, as a woman, I could be anti woman. :/ It really is time for us to take back our schools.

I suppose that is how the left views it in a sense. However, based on your comment, I clarified my intentions in that paragraph a little better. Thanks.

I think home schooling if you can or a private conswerative school is what we are left with. It seems so few parents care what their kids are taught these days.
After years of struggle our eldests has finally opted for private Christian school for her children.
As we have for our youngest.

Home schooling means brainwashing on the part of parents, without interfereance; by deliberatly restricting outside influence. When that doesn't work, there are xian camps, and such...or the juvinile detention prisons.

But at 18 you can't run their lives or thoughts anymore, yet perhaps you will have throughly indoctrinated them in your way of thinking, however diverse.

This is easy for me to write, because I am childless, and believe me, there's nothing easier in this world than to not be a parent.

Excellent post, Doug, and you make an excellent analogy between the indoctrination practices of Nazism and the Left today.

Another analogy is how the Left uses the Nazi practice of dehumanization to promote abortion. The Jew is not a human being therefore it is okay to kill him. The unborn child is not a human being, therefore it's okay to kill him.

In Humanae Vitae, Pope Paul VI observes that when abortion and contraception is acceptable to society, then a woman's role in that society is demeaned. Woman's involvement in the procreation process is miraculous in a spiritual and biological sense, but when that role is destroyed, she becomes merely an object of sexual gratification.

Homeschooling is an excellent way to prevent one's children from being indoctrinated by the Left. Our public schools are no longer places of learning. They are merely centers by which Little Leftys are bred and brainwashed.

Holy smoke Doug, that was fantastic. Well said.

I was a victim of the liberal lefty indoctrination as a child. I was raised in a moderate conservative household, but by the time I'd completed 6th grade, you could say, I'd bought the left's talking points wholesale.

I even marched on city hall against the first gulf war.
I attended bible camp Mudkitty. We colored, and sang. Then we ran around the grass and played tag. Not very "brain washy".

Then I woke up. They couldn't take me. I realized that their ideas, their thoughts were in fact the opposite of what the "preached".

I don't say this often Doug, but I agree with what you said 100%.

JJ - If you were against the Gulf War, why would you march against City Hall? How much sense does that make?

I'm not clear on what you wrote...who couldn't take you? The bible camp? Or who, exactly couldn't take you? And what did you wake up to specificly? Adhominem aside.

Atheling2 - I have to say, wow! Comparing a jew to an embryo or a fetus, is not only insulting in the general sense, but it trivializes the holocaust. Wow. I always have to catch my breath when I hear this one.

Douglas V. Gibbs said...

Mudkitty, he was not comparing a Jew to a fetus, he was illustrating how the dehumanization of life by abortion spreads to other things, to the point where the dehumanization of entire races are becoming acceptable. And I am not saying that it is the fault of abortion alone. This has been caused by a number of things. Political Correctness has taken away the absolute right and wrong of God. Society is more violent and more immoral for a reason. We have become an ambiguous society with a blurred line between right and wrong and a throw away society where convenience is the key, rather than doing what is right.

Oh gez, mudkitty following jen around.
You go that right gibbs, on voting republican!

I never met Jen before today, so you're fantacy of following Jen around is your projection.

He made his illustration by equating jews with fetus' and embryos.

Fantasy? Your delusional.

Gee Mudkitty, as one of a bunch of 17 year old kids in a small northern Californian town, we all thought City Hall would be a good place to march to. I mean WTF Mudkitty, when you're marching for "peace" does it matter where? I mean do you have some moral authority on where the hippy ding dongs march these days? City Hall was as close to "government" as we had. So, it made sense.

My comment about "bible camp", was in response to your comment,"When that doesn't work, there are xian camps, and such...or the juvinile detention prisons." My point being, that there was absolutely 0 indoctrination at those camps. In fact, I was an athiest from about 5 on and still went. They were freakin' fun, I made friends there that I still keep in touch with.

What did I wake up to? Reality.

Example: We were told explicitly that GHWB was going to reinstitute the draft. In no uncertain terms, that was what our teachers told us, the news, the lefties...It scared the sh*t out of us. But now that wasn't reality, was it.

Then, 8 years of Clintoon helped cement my decision to turn to the right. I shouldn't have to explain why, unless that is, you are mentally handicapped.

atheling2 said...

What's wrong about comparing Jews to embryos and fetuses? I prefer to call them unborn children. After all, Jews were once embryos and fetuses too. We all were. Nothing insulting about that.

Only a sick mind would consider that a person's "status" is dependent upon his location, i.e. inside the womb or outside the womb.

But then from reading her prior comments, it's easy to see that mudkitty is a sicko.

Douglas V. Gibbs said...

mudkitty, we appreciate you coming to our politically conservative sites. Apparently you are lost and need to be shown the truth, and who better to do that for you than a bunch of rightwing nuts who have their heads screwed on right?

atheling2 said...

Righty tighty, Lefty loosie.

Anonymous said...

Thanks DvG. I wish you really meant that.


Wow...what's wrong with comparing jews to fetuses and embryos? My god, where do I start?

For one thing, if you think embryos and fetuses are "babies" then it's an insult of the highest magnitude right there.

As for "status" I don't think an acorn and an oak tree have the same status, no. To think it's a matter of status is horrifying to begin with.

mudkitty, you can't even articulate your position. All you do is huff and puff. Good debating skills. I bet you went to public school.
