The right has their own nonsense they shriek about, so no one group is immune to shrieking nonsense.

Social engineering with a very real end-game.

Oh simmer down. No one can do away with 'best friends'. Carlson put this woman on his show for the very reason he's accomplished here, to get reactions and attention.

I actually won't disagree with your statement, honestly! Abortion would be an example. However, the right isn't trying to change the fundamental values of society with their shrieking, trying to change human nature which has existed long before there even was a left / right paradigm. The right also doesn't have any utopian aspirations.

In any case, I would agree.

I'm about as far left as you can be, and I don't agree with the premise of banning best friends at all. Some of us are introverts, and introverts don't do well socializing in large groups. My daughter is an introvert and has always only wanted one or two close friends to hang out with.

Having said that, I do feel for kids who have a hard time finding and making friends, but rather than making introverted kids suffer, I'd prefer some program to help match kids up with a potential "best friend".

I knwo we go at it some times, but you're all right. You're not one of them.

Plenty of mental health professionals have bought the programming con hook, line and sinker.

So they want to ban "best friends", which is an important part of appropriate socialization and development and I saw an article about how some schools are segregating kids at lunch time according to grades. So, don't allow kids to develop proper socialization skills and put them in groups according to how well they perform the brainwashing tasks set before them by the elite. Education is not about teaching kids how to think, it's about teaching them how to obey.

At school..ok.

But at home?

School is less than 1/3 of any day. Plus weekends.

Its simply harassing kids as an experiment on them as humans

yes at home. that is the point of the interview, articles, and all the stuff going around social media. to get the parents on board and enforcing it at home. they are working at making it the new normal. and if you love your kids, you will do what is best for them. and they are pushing that this[i] is what's best not just for them, but for all kids. and what parent does not want what is best for their own and other kids.

and for many kids they do not spend that other 2/3's of the day with their parents. due to things like work scheduals, as well as both parents working, many kids end up in daycare or in before and after school programs for much of the rest of their awake times. there are unfortunately many parents who pretty much drop their kids off early in the morning on the way to work. only to pick them up in the evening. thus pretty much taking them home, feeding them supper, and putting their kids to bed. even weekends are not guranteed as many people end up working on weekends. and/or spending the weekends as almost pure family time, since that is the only real time they might have to spend with their families. heck many of these parents don't even really know who their children's friends even are. forget about if they have best friends or not. too many kids are virtually being raised by schools and childcare, and not their parents. which makes this type of thing even more critical to keep out of places ike schools and other childcare

The circle is complete the journey of birth life death all under the chemical control of the elite.


“In our dream we have limitless resources, and the people yield themselves with perfect docility to our molding hand. The present educational conventions fade from our minds; and, unhampered by tradition, we work our own good will upon a grateful and responsive rural folk. We shall not try to make these people or any of their children into philosophers or men of learning or of science. We are not to raise up among them authors, orators, poets, or men of letters. We shall not search for embryo great artists, painters, musicians. Nor will we cherish even the humbler ambition to raise up from among them lawyers, doctors, preachers, statesmen, of whom we now have ample supply." -

Rev. Frederick T. Gates, Business Advisor to John D. Rockefeller Sr., 1913 [1]

The current American school system took root around the turn of the century. In 1903, John D. Rockefeller founded the General Education Board, which provided major funding for schools across the country and was especially active in promoting the State-controlled public school movement.

Western Medicine is Rockefeller Medicine – All The Way

He wanted to eliminate the competitors of western medicine (the only modality which would propose drugs and radiation as treatment, thus enriching Rockefeller who owned the means to produce these treatments), so he hired a man called Abraham Flexner to submit a report to Congress in 1910. This report “concluded” that there were too many doctors and medical schools in America, and that all the natural healing modalities which had existed for hundreds or thousands of years were unscientific quackery. It called for the standardization of medical education, whereby only the allopathic-based AMA be allowed to grant medical school licenses in the US.

I'm really beginning to wonder if this isn't the case.

I wonder if Rockefeller figured out how to clone himself in George Soros!

Why should kids have best friends and form close bonds. A fluid minimal binding between people ensures roots and a sense of loyalty and mutual dependence doesnt take hold.

Packs are ripe for leaders acting in the States interest to herd them to compliance.

Prepares them for later in life when people are constantly moving to fill the need of industry. Industry that has no borders but dictating to Governments for favourable tax regime "otherwise we'll set up shop overseas"

You do realize that these "far left socialists" run the Gov't schools? That's why in the end they almost always prevail.

Of course it does - how else would a classless society willingly give up all rights to property and be reliant on govt to control the means of production and distribution?

Loyalty to the State supersedes family, friends

But here its from the horses own mouth:

Norman Thomas - founder of the ACLU

“The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism. But, under the name of “liberalism,” they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program, until one day America will be a socialist nation, without knowing how it happened. I no longer need to run as a Presidential Candidate for the Socialist Party. The Democratic Party has adopted our platform.” ― Norman Mattoon Thomas

All part of the plan - where we are cogs in the machine, no individuality,
We have more perceived choice colours ranges sizes group affiliations hobbies distractions. But when it comes to social policy it is driven by the ideologies of cultural marxism.
Multiculturism, inclusiveness.

The greatest upheavels in any society have been triggered from without, never a natural paced evolution based on reason and social responsibility.

What was worse the Russian Revolution or the last 10 years of silent transfer of individual wealth through corporate cronyism concentrated in fewer hands?

Watering down of anti-completive legislation, deregulation of financial markets, bail-ins, extra taxes, privatization and stripping of govermnent assets to their buddies.

"because "society went through the wars" and world peace can only happen if there is group think, the individual is dangerous."

They actually seem to think that encouraging "pack" or "herd" behavior in children is a good thing, they want to strip them of all individuality and rob them of the chance to form meaningful relationships.

Think about that for a while and the whole idea behind this will run out and challenge you.

It's the plan!

Start with the children.

But there in lies the problem. Its not simply the left. These virii implanted through Govt policy and the education system and the media have their beginnings in think tanks beholden to monopolists.

They use this thought process at my grandson's grade school. It actually works out quite well.

They encourage inclusion over exclusion.

They have a "buddy" bench. Any kid feeling down or left out can go sit on the bench. Other kids see him/her -- then go sit on the bench with him/her -- converse -- then usually bring him/her into whatever activity they're doing.

I've seen it work.

I don't know why anyone would put this down as negative.

Psychology is about normalizing an abnormal mind.

Forcing people into unnatural behavior by telling them having preference is wrong and exclusionary is not the natural state of a mind.

Thus, i find it to be internally inconsistent with the body of work within the field. And i have to wonder what studies are used to support this? Because without studies, its nothing short of running behavoiral experiments on children. I find that utterly detestable

I think it’s wrong to discourage friendships of any kind. Creating a close bond as in best friends can last a lifetime, and there is nothing wrong with that.

That being said , I do think all children should be encouraged to include others in play, or school activities. The kid who gets picked last for games endures much emotional distress, and good teachers will find away around this, or help the students be more compassionate about their choices.

I can’t see why we can’t have both. Strong friendships in the form of best friends, as well as an inclusive philosophy for the classroom.
