    Homeschooling: Freedoms Last Stand

    "This new Reich will give its youth to no one, but will itself take youth and give to youth its own education and its own upbringing."

    Thus Hitler famously declared in 1937 as he ordered the nation's children into government schools -- a law that is still enforced to this very day. The Nazi tyrant knew, as all dictators do, that the home, left to its own devices, is a far worse threat to state ideology than any foreign power.

    We are fortunate in North America today that the home remains more or less free. However, homeschoolers even in my own province of Nova Scotia are currently arguing that the province risks becoming the "worst place" in Canada for home-based education if the government adopts a new report by the Auditor General calling for increased oversight of their activities.

    Really what the Auditor General is proposing is mild compared to places like Germany or Sweden, where some homeschooling parents have lost custody of their children and even been jailed. But as Western culture descends into increasing secularism, homeschooling families are right to be vigilant. In fact, everyone should be, because the right to homeschool is the last bulwark of freedom; it is our last stand against tyranny.

    The state may stomp on our freedom of expression, conscience, and religion; it may demolish our churches and ban our soapbox diatribes. But these are all in the external forum -- regulating words and deeds.

    Forced attendance at school, on the other hand, attacks the internal forum. Its goal is to control the thoughts of the next generation. As long as the home remains unscathed, a sanctuary amidst the chaos, there's still some last vestige of liberty. While greatly impeded by the loss of religious and cultural institutions, the family can still keep the fires of faith and truth alive around the evening's hearth or the morning's math lesson.
