EDIT: The video above is a follow-up rant to the one I posted below because this is not a debate about spanking, this is a debate about living in such an Orwellian nightmare that people can’t use common sense or make their own decisions without the mechanism of the government.
This video is not about whether or not you advocate spanking. This is about living in such a fear-based society that people are calling the police on themselves before they make their own decisions about being parents. What’s next? Are people going to start calling the FDA to ask what to feed their kids? Are they going to start calling the MPAA to ask what politically correct movies they can allow their children to watch? Are we going to start putting cameras in our homes with a direct line to the $3 billion spy hub the NSA has build in the Utah desert? Are we going to let the government tell us what thoughts we are allowed to have before we think?
(Truthstream Media) Remember the old proverb, “Spare the rod, spoil the child?” Well, it’s been replaced with George Orwell’s 1984.
Apparently this is a thing people do now — they call the police on themselves preemptively so the officers can supervise them while they discipline their own children.

We do not destroy the heretic because he resists us; so long as he resists us we never destroy him. We convert him, we capture his inner mind, we reshape him. We burn all evil and all illusion out of him; we bring him over to our side, not in appearance, but genuinely, heart and soul. We make him one of ourselves before we kill him. It is intolerable to us that an erroneous thought should exist anywhere in the world, however secret and powerless it may be. Even in the instance of death we cannot permit any deviation . . . we make the brain perfect before we blow it out.” [/readolog_blockquote]
