Responsible parents interested not just in liberty, but also in the physical safety of their children, have a parental obligation–as the record clearly indicates–to teach their children to always and forever distrust government and its officials.
A sense of personal responsibility for their own liberty and confidence in their natural right to engage in responsible, thoughtful direct action to secure it are among the greatest gifts one can give a child.
In today’s socio-political climate, in the same way that a responsible parent teaches a child not to take candy from strangers and the difference between ‘good touch’ and ‘bad touch’, parents must also teach children how to resist interrogation.
A DHS caseworker pressured a pregnant Mayfair teenager to undergo a late-term abortion by threatening to take away either her toddler or her unborn baby.
Whichever the case – deliberately obstructive, power-tripping petty bureaucrats or pure, incompetent ignorance – parents do not have to tolerate such treatment.
