"Is our children learning?"


But what they're learning isn't good.

Corrupt them at a young enough age - when they're still developing critical thinking skills - and mold them to a specific way of thinking and presto! A Brave New World.

The fact that a growing number of kids think it's okay for the government to limit free speech is disturbing enough. What worries me isn't that schools aren't doing enough to teach kids about the right to free speech; what worries me is the possibility that schools are actually conditioning kids to believe that limiting free speech is good.

It's time to stop fighting the old fight with people too old to change their minds; we need to be concerned about the fight for the next generation. It's a fight that's already begun. And right now, it's a fight we're losing.
