"We must create out of the younger generation a generation of Communists. We must turn children, who can be shaped like wax, into real, good Communists. ... We must remove the children from the crude influence of their families. We must take them over and, to speak frankly, nationalize them. From the first days of their lives they will be under the healthy influence of Communist children's nurseries and schools. There they will grow up to be real Communists."

    Just change the word "Communist" to Catholic, Baptist, Republican, Democrat and you will have a universal statement about the mentality of adults to indoctrinate their children into their way of thinking. How about training children to think for themselves. The Commies are just as honest and straight forward as are parents who home school so as to indoctrinate their children to be just like Mommy and Daddy.

    Indeed, collectivists of all shapes attempt to standardize their form of control over the masses -- for the purposes of exploiting them and legitimizing their authority over them. Waffler is a perfect example having been indoctrinated into democratic socialism by the government school system he literally worships. Yes, false religions absolutely need to be taught to children for years in order for them to take hold. You don't need to 'train' a child to think for themselves, you just LET THEM. And Waffler does not want children to think for themselves, he doesn't want them to act for themselves either, he wants them to obey the laws he has been taught to obey -- after all, fair is fair...

    Waffler, you are as sick malignant piece of work as has anything that has spent time on this orb. AND that is beside being wrong almost exclusively since you've been commenting on this blog. You are at least as sick and wrong as the here quote.

    Mike you have before complimented my contributions to this site. Oh how you quibble and shift. It is so sweet of Archer to speak for me but unfortunately as usual he is full of BS, thinking that children can be left out in the wild so to speak and learn to think and use logic. Have some respect for the human race and its advanced stages of thinking Archer. Did you not ever go to school?

    Generations of Repetitive Practiced Communist Theories of Indoctrination have sadly Influenced far too many Youthful Americans.
     -- Mary-MI     
    So, prey tell me the difference between this and the tyranny Americans currently live under - our children from the cradle are taught to be automatons, while poisoning their minds and bodies. Call it different names but the objective is the same... The success of the JROTC program is the dumbing down and keeping the masses in need....
     -- Robert, Somewhere in the USA     
    Archer, you are dead wrong: You can teach children to think for themselves... it's called "Reason" "Ethics" "Integrity" and so on... If only we did teach children to think for themselves perhaps we wouldn't be in the mess we are in! Children need guidance in all matters, That's why birds rarely fall out of the nest.

    Communist party, USA = Progressive labor party = Students for a democratic society. infiltrate and indoctrinate, through a democratic process, instilling secularist socialism, unionization of all labor.

    Robert, I have children -- although I have tried, I cannot teach them to think! ;-) Who taught YOU to think?

    The children can spend time watching television -- they will learn from that whatever they will -- or engaging in a dialogue with someone. We are always being 'impressed upon' by our environment. I find the woods to be a good environment for learning about nature. Talking with a carpenter and helping him work will yield knowledge in carpentry.

    As a parent, I determine the learning environments for my children. Whether they be at home or in a school, I am responsible for that. Personally, I noticed that the children learned the most during travel. They pick up all the differences from home. At school, they sure picked up a lot of bad influences that I would have been happy them not ever being exposed to. But we live in a world with it all, not just the parts we'd like.

    I agree wholeheartedly that children should learn ethics, integrity, LOGIC. However, what public school teaches that? Where do we find honor and integrity? Can we 'buy' or even 'provide' such a thing to another?

    Where will I learn to be honorable growing up? Better question: How did I learn the importance of being honorable?

    Do we not learn from our day-to-day experiences, whether at home or in an institution, in class or out?

    Atheism cuts itself off from even asking certain questions, perhaps making certain truths unavailable -- that which may set them free. Instead of freeing themselves from their mental box, they take on the role of God for the poor and down-trodden. Their 'education' merely enrolls the dependent in their programs -- all the while condemning religious congregations for extending their form of compassion.

    The State cannot address the Soul/Self, the liberating of which from the bonds of dogma is the right of passage of every Freeman.

    Great quote. There are many good commie quotes that are very instructive, but you really can not tell the difference between their quotes and those of Hillary, Bill, Barrack or any other of the fascist Dems in office. Take a look at the progressive stated agenda from 100+ years ago and you will not be able to tell the difference. Fascist, Communist, Socialist, Progressive, all different words that mean the same thing.
