Children of the State


World Magazine has a fabulous article by Joel Belz describing why we are now at the juncture in our history where we are moving toward a socialist state at a rapid pace. It has to do with having had our children indoctrinated by that very state for the past 100 years.

Some quotes from his article:

"The bells of freedom on every front traditionally ring more clearly where a biblical value system has been inculcated. No one should expect anything resembling such a result from secularist state-sponsored schools, which will naturally glorify the state. No one should be surprised when that's what happens."

and

"That's why, if I were ever forced to become a one-issue person on the political front, my single issue would be freedom of choice in education. With a nine-to-one edge in value-shaping influence, why shouldn't the government be producing products who think government-sponsored-everything is best?"

The article may be found HERE.

UPDATE:
It appears World has changed the way it does its online access. For $5 you can get access online and get two issues. Quite honestly...if you get any other news magazine, cancel it and get World! It beats the rest hands down. The beginnings of Belz's article are HERE, along with the ability to subscribe online for the $5.

SECOND UPDATE:
I found the original link to World so you can read the whole article without subscribing. It's now on both of the links above.

Hi there!

The link is only taking me to the main World page...I'd love to read the whole article if you know how to fix the link.

Thanks for posting this.

It appears World has changed the way they do the online version of their magazine. I added an update to the original post with a link that will at least get you to the beginnings of the article. From there you can decide if you want to do a trial subscription to read the rest (it's only $5!) and personally, I think it's well worth the price!
