Ellen Degeneres said: “I just feel like every kid is growing up too fast and they’re seeing too much. Everything is about sex…they have to have some innocence; there’s just no innocence left.”
I am of the belief that it is ultimately up to parents to decide how their children grow up. It is not up to schools, governments, bureaucracies, or outsiders of any kind to influence the rate at which a child understands certain parts of life. I think the government already takes enough from us as it is; it shouldn’t take our innocence too.
According to CNS News:
“The Chicago public schools this year are mandating that the district’s kindergarten classes include sex education, fulfilling a proposal President Barack Obama supported 2003 when he served in the Illinois state senate and later defended when he ran for President in the 2008 election cycle.”
You read that correctly. Chicago wants its kindergarteners to be educated in sex. You know, just in case they…uh…well, I can’t think of any reason a six year-old should be in sex education.
This is an intrusion of the worst kind, but this is how the Left works. They create in their minds a uniform, matriarchal style of government, believing that it will work for everyone. This is a government under which they want us, the people, to stand. Ultimately, the Liberal paradise is a fully communalized government that takes care of all its citizens in accordance to their needs. But to accomplish this dream, government must encroach further and further into our lives. They believe it is the job of the federal government to take over for parents. They already educate your children. Why not simply tack on some social agenda issues while they’re at it?
The Left wants us to conform to an ever-changing society of their own creation. They have left objective morality behind, and as a result, have had to create a morality based in subjectivity. The problem with subjective morality is that it is always changing with the fickle heartbeat of our culture. As our culture slips farther down into a twisted immorality, our humanity becomes distorted as well. It is this distortion that leads people to believe that six year-olds should be in sex ed class.
The Left says that to keep up with the times, we need to keep kids informed. They say that kids are becoming active earlier now than ever before, so we need to make sure they’re safe. How about we make sure our kids are morally safe? How about we set up some moral guardrails so that we don’t continue to warp into some funhouse mirror of our former selves?
When do we draw the line? When is it too late to stop this disturbing trend of government overreach? I hope that it isn’t too late already, because many of us are just waking up to the frightening reality of Leftist ideology.
Innocence is dying as a direct result of the subjectivity of morality. We shouldn’t ride the waves of cultural change, hoping everything will turn out fine. We need to turn around and swim in the opposite direction. That is the only way back.
