What Police State?

Kalifornistan takes the next logical step...

Stolen shamelessly from Vox Day (who doesn't recognize intellectual property rights as a right, anyway. ;) ):

Intellectual death showers

I've argued that what now passes for "school" is nothing more than a statist propaganda factory meant to intellectually cripple children for a long time, but now a California appeals court has confirmed this to be the case:

A California court has ruled that several children in one homeschool family must be enrolled in a public school or "legally qualified" private school, and must attend, sending ripples of shock into the nation's homeschooling advocates as the family reviews its options for appeal.... Specifically, the appeals court said, the trial court had found that "keeping the children at home deprived them of situations where (1) they could interact with people outside the family, (2) there are people who could provide help if something is amiss in the children's lives, and (3) they could develop emotionally in a broader world than the parents' 'cloistered' setting."

There are few things more mindlessly cruel than sentencing a child to public school. The school Nazis know their factories are under threat, which is why they are ratcheting up the pressure on families who don't obediently send their children to the intellectual death showers.
Heh.
Intellectual death showers.

Good one.
If it wasn't so scary, it would be funny.
