The indoctrination of children. Is it right or wrong?


I would argue that force feeding a child any doctrine - whether political or religious - to be brainwashing of the worst kind. Consider these two statements. 1) Train up the child in the way he should go ; and when he is old he will not depart from it (proverbs 22:6). Compared with: 2) 'Give me the boy for six years and I will give you the man' (Moa Tse Tung). Is there any real difference between the two? Aren't they both tantamount to abuse of a child?
