The Left has successfully created a new generation of socialist puppets.
Rather than blatantly proclaim their radical agenda, liberal America uses stealth tactics through school curriculum and cartoon-like television shows to easily persuade vulnerable and impressionable children.
Marybeth Hicks warns,
“It’s not just that Leftists are attempting to instill their radical beliefs in the minds and hearts of children. It’s that our children have swallowed these lessons hook, line, and sinker. Polls prove that on issue after issue, American young people are buying what the Left is selling.” (Introduction)
Ms. Hicks wrote Don’t Let the Kids Drink the Kool-Aid: Confronting the Left’s Assault on Our Families, Faith, and Freedom to expose this indoctrinating worldview and convince parents to step up and raise their children with virtues handed down to them from their American heritage.
- How public schools are destroying kids’ work ethic and ambitions by teaching them to be a citizen who “gives back” to the community rather than pursue their own interests.
- How a campaign against God forces us to be religion-free, rather than freely religious.
- Why children are learning sex education as young as elementary school.
- How radical environmentalism is impacting children through internet use and cartoons.
- How multiculturalism teaches children to become “global citizens”.
- How parents are continuously undermined by the hand of the government.
The statistics and news stories throughout these pages will astound you, and have you wondering how we can possibly restore such a broken generation.
According to Marybeth Hicks,
“Imbuing our children with virtues for personal conduct, public conduct, and civic leadership will restore America in the next generation. This is the key to revitalizing our republic, and to reigniting the love of freedom in the hearts of our youngest citizens.” (pg 186)
Children don’t have to drink a socialist, sugary drink of Kool-Aid if parents are aware and informed about what the Left is selling their kids. They can help redirect America’s moral compass by instilling virtue in their children. Humility, reverence, self-discipline, and honor, among others, are all qualities of a moral citizenship, not a social one.
For those of you with children, have you experienced any of this indoctrination first-hand, through the public school system or pop culture?
