Most modern parents have been indoctrinated with the notion that if you are your child’s BFF (Best Friend forever) they would have a blissful, intimate relationship with each other forever. The child and the parent’s friendly relationship is supposed to keep all communication between them honest and open throughout their years together. The parent will be told everything going on in the child’s life. There will be no surprises since the child will seek out the parent’s advice before making any decisions.

Undermining parental responsibility and power

France became the 52nd nation to end any and all forms of corporal punishment of children. This movement has become a well-financed global progressive initiative. Sixty-two percent of French citizens polled reported spanking their children. This is a deflated figure due to political correctness, with 82% of the respondents clearly voicing opposition to the ban, which passed. Statist governments are dictating to parents in 52 nations of the world that spanking for any reason or in any limited form will no longer be allowed by the parent or guardian.

The USA is a Constitutional Republic, not a democracy. The founders of our nation definitely understood that past democracies, dating back to The Golden Age of Greece, were unstable and prone to radical changes in the direction of the nation. It is for this and other practical reasons they chose a representative, federalist form of governance. Our founders were intellectual, rational people who studied the history of civilization learning that a representative republic was the most efficient form of government.

Government workers are servants for the people. When congress requests pertinent information about a federal investigation all government officials have the obligation to assist the process in order to uncover the truth. “Taking the Fifth” obstructs and impedes congressional members from establishing accountability in the people’s government.

Making good decisions takes knowledge and insight. These two traits increase with experience and age. There are a few toddlers that demonstrate maturity beyond their years. However, almost all of them have to be taught, usually by their parents, about the immediate and future consequences of their behavior. In order to accomplish this sacred responsibility, the authority figure has to take charge in almost all situations.
