by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy – Spank and Save a Child
Editor’s note: This was written in the wake of allegations that Pearl’s book ‘To Train Up A Child’ was found in the homes of several families that abused their children to death, Hana Grace Williams and Lydia Shatz. It’s breathtakingly convoluted conspiracy theory that Mr. Pearl has worked out to justify his worldview instead of being open to examine the possibility that he might have contributed to the death of children. Nothing like being deceived and filled with martrybating.
The anti-spanking campaign is a front for an anti-family agenda, a progressive socialist movement to reengineer society with government the only mentor of children. A few well- placed individuals in government, media, and the educational system religiously promote a new world order where the collective state replaces God and the Constitution. They must control the minds of the citizenry if they are to institute their totalitarian policies; and they are well aware from history that mind control must begin with the youth—thus the public school system. But homeschool parents and Christian parents protect their children from corrupt worldviews. The socialists know that the last remaining bulwark against brainwashing children is parental headship—thus their hostility toward the family. As long as parents are free to pass on their culture and faith, totalitarian government is impossible.
Their earlier promotion of organic evolution was an effective wedge against Biblical faith and the dignity of man, but it has taken them as far as it can, for it is losing credibility in the face of genetic discoveries and contrary evidence. The leading edge of the attack upon parental authority is now the anti-spanking movement. They will use any means to police the home and mandate parental conduct, but they know that to receive public support their home incursion must be seen as a necessary act of compassion. They paint themselves as concerned now for the children they would have aborted a few years earlier.
