History proves bad things happen when government authorities begin replacing the family unit. One classic approach is for the dictator and his regime to build a narrative that the people are his “children” and he is the “father” they must rely on.
A more generational approach is for the regime to raise and educate the children of a nation to believe they should trust the regime and its leaders more than their own parents, similar to what happened in Communist China. In China’s Cultural Revolution, children turned on their parents after being indoctrinated in government schools, even going as far as reporting their parents for violating the communist regime’s thought control measures, knowing it would lead to their imprisonment, torture, or even death.
This mindset is becoming more common among liberal politicians. We hear rhetoric from the left that describes kids as society’s children, and it is the job of society as a whole to teach and raise children. This may sound appealing to some, but what they really mean is this: they know what’s best for your kids more than you do.
Today, we have teachers following in the footsteps of communist regimes of the 20th Century. Across the country, woke teachers tell their classrooms of little, easily-manipulated children to come to them as a parent figure if they don’t feel supported at home by their actual parents.
