It’s also a question of degree, in which indoctrination manifests itself…in addition to the question, “have you ever seen, the rest of the world?”
I think it is wonderful, that a boy of that age is a writer…and a published writer, at that.
I also think, that it is a sizable book, deeply rooted in politics…and really points towards some strongly influential adults [parents?] behind it.
As a rule, it is incredibly rare [if not unheard of], for a kid that age, to write a book of that nature, and get it published…I would be willing to wager, that there is at least one very aggressive parent behind it, making it all possible…and, likely, providing the original inspiration for it all.
Is that “wrong”?…
…Maybe that is a matter of opinion, just like whether or not child modeling pageants are wrong.
…It still leaves a generally bad feeling, in my mind.
It’s not that I think, people have no right to be conservative…it’s that I really hate deep indoctrination of kids…I hate dogma.
I hope that he broadens his horizons, and does not blindly follow a mindset, pre-chosen for him.
That’s really at the crux, of what I am expressing…though, admittedly…
…it has been my experience, that political conservatism is the chosen home, of so much intolerance and bigotry…I just think, it’s one of the worse camps, in this regards.
I think, it’s high time for the U.S. Republican party to just…die…disolve…go away…
In all fairness, I don’t have much higher opinions of the Democratic party.
