Chairman Mao attempted to create a new generation of Communists when he usurped the Little Red Guards to his own purposes. Again, youthful members spied on their parents and denounced them to the authorities as well as learned to be good Communists.
Don't take my word for it. A report by the National Association of Scholars reveals that, despite rules that prohibit the use of its facilities to advance a political ideology, professors are openly advocating everything from moderately leftist ideology to extreme Marxism in their classrooms. They defend their right to teach these lessons on the basis of academic freedom while denying that freedom to their students.
I am not going to repeat the totality of the findings here. You may see them for yourself by downloading the report from the website for the National Association of Scholars. Click here.
The Constitution guarantees of opportunity and freedom to make one's own choices and live one's own way so long as those choices and that life do not infringe on the freedom of others to do the same. Obviously, many of our children are are being taught to surrender their freedom for the sake of free things guaranteed under socialism. There is nothing intrinsically wrong with this. If that is what they want, that is what they will have until they run out of the resources to maintain that way of life. Just look to Europe to see how well it works.
What is truly alarming is that we, their parents, are aware of the problem and allowing it to happen. We are not speaking out to object. We are not voting out those who refuse to enforce the rules that would prevent the socialists from dominating our schools. We are not teaching our children the true meaning and value of freedom. Doesn't that make it our fault?
