Joe Doakes from Como Park emails:
A child’s job is to rebel against societal rules, customs and norms. A parent’s job is to enforce the rules, customs and norms so the child has something to rebel against. Eventually, we expect the child to grow up and begin to enforce the rules, customs and norms on her children. What if that doesn’t happen? Spare the rod and spoil the child? What if an entire generation is spared the rod?
Cast your mind back to the kind of society portrayed in the old television series “Leave it to Beaver” or “Father Knows Best.” Now imagine a person are so completely opposed to that society that he wants to reverse every single thing about it, from the most frivolous details down to the most fundamental concepts. That’s the mission of Liberalism in America.
Remember when you were in junior high and some bully asked: “Do you want me to punch you?” so you said “no” and got punched anyway? “Ha ha ha, it’s Opposite Day!” Think of any rule, custom or anything that was normal in 1959 and flip it on it’s head. That’s the goal: Permanent Opposite Day.
Do you want your schools to be like a community theater production of Lord of the Flies? Do you want your colleges to be like banana republic dictatorships, and your city governments to be like college sociology classes run amok?
I see what Joe did, here…
