Could there be a bigger elephant in the room ? Common Core may actually be but like so many ways we have of trying to teach our children we seem to be loosing the battle .This vid on Common Core is worth a listen to .Skip tp the 2 min. mark .

I have seen people who live and breath these kind of "ideals" first hand and believe me when I say the reality is MUCH more scary than the cartoons that portray it. I was disowned by a large part of my family at a rather young age because I had enough common sense to question what I was being taught and speak out when it didn't sit right in my head. That's how these circles of influence work, very cult like and they value "religion" above all else, even family.
For me personally, this isn't that far off from the radical islamist mindset and while the violence may be absent in extreme Christians, the lifestyle and "religion" consumes them wholly and completely until there is nothing left but a shell of a person parroting the brainwashing they have received their entire lives. It's both scary and quite sad.
I have found that children who grow up in these types of circles have to want to get out of them on their own. In other words, complacency is a very common human trait and some people are happy to slip into it because it's the easy thing to do even if they know something is amiss and it takes a strong person to question beliefs they have been force fed by loved ones and family for the entirety of their life so not many people do it, instead...... They are just obedient.
You can have strong and healthy faith and beliefs that project positivity and happiness both inward and outward without becoming extreme, intolerant and demanding everyone around you believe and act in the same way. For me, that is not what faith and religion are for and why I abandoned that lifestyle and mindset long ago when it did not agree with how I felt inside and reflected what kind of person I wanted to be.

They may understand it differently and conclude that the Father is someone who is responsible for them .We as parents can only try to do our best with the tools we inherited from our parents .I knew some of the mistakes mine made and decided not to make the same ones but I also was not free from some of the ills and probably made my own unique mistakes . a reply to: Krazysh0t
In short, this video is a clear case of children indoctrination which attempts to normalize high tech surveillance and government data collection to young minds. Notice that, when Shutterbug sends out a picture, Special Agent Oso sees, from his high-tech facility, exactly where it originates from.

Mrs. Iserbyt has also documented the gradual transformation of our once academically
successful education system into one devoted to training children to become compliant
human resources to be used by government and industry for their own purposes. This is how
fascist-socialist societies train their children to become servants of their government masters.
The successful implementation of this new philosophy of education will spell the end of the
American dream of individual freedom and opportunity.

That is some crazy stuff.
It reminds me of when I was in the Solomon Islands - there was a church there with a big banner that said "fear of the lord is the first step to knowledge".
