"But We're Not"

Read this Bleat entry from James Lileks. The big middle section starting with, "Today I became one of those people...".

Why, yes, I am against attempts to indoctrinate kiddies in anything but the most basic civic virtures. Don't use kindergarten and pre-school to subvert the dominant paradigm: Give kids the personal and social skills to make their own decisions way on down the road, and the right things are more likely to happen. Things are rarely such that having mindless sheep will ever make for a good citizenry, national or world.
