Mr. Duncan touted the possibility of “public boarding schools.” He said to the gathered crowd of federal bureaucrats and apparatchiks, “One idea that I threw out ... is the idea of public boarding schools. That’s a little bit of a different idea—a controversy (sic) idea—but the question is do we have some children where there’s not a mom, there’s not a dad, there’s not a grandma, there’s just nobody at home?”
“There’s just certain kids we should have 24/7 to really create a safe environment and give them a chance to be successful,” he said.
Since when did liberal masterminds start seeing having no mother or father as detrimental to a child’s development? They claim the opposite in federal courtrooms to redefine marriage. Furthermore, why do liberal policies incentivize divorce and separating children earlier and more often from their parents’ home? Why are liberals passing laws treating non-gendered adults 1, 2, 3, etc. as just as good as biological parents?
They want the children, that’s why. There is too much inequality and variability in children raised by their own parents, so progressives undermine the family to put themselves in charge of an impersonal, industrial-scale daycare. Progressives, like their Communist cousins, need complete control of the population to reorder natural man to realize their machinations.
They do this under the guise of caring, of giving children the best chance at success. They presume they know better, when of course they don’t. Knowledge is as elusive to them as it is to all of us. There is no secret formula that they are in sole possession of that will enable them to raise every child as if it was their own.
We can’t stop them if they have their minds set on it. They have the power and the aegis of the state behind them. But, insofar as it is up to the people, who in a constitutional republic predicate the form of government over them, their success in building families takes away progressives’ argument for a better, more efficient way to socially organize.
