RE: Oops!
All too infamous Jesuit quote:

"Give me the child for his first seven years and I'll give you the man"

Nuff said.

See also, Animal Farm.

How can this not be child abuse?

Interesting that you would include this quote as an example of "what evil thinks".

Forgetting whose quote it is, it is to my mind a concept too much disregarded, especially in this country (USA) with the highest incarceration rate on the planet.

Here's a quote that fits hand in hand with Manson's:

"You can judge a society by how well it treats its prisoners". Fyodor Dostoevsky

Rejecting the wisdom of a sentiment because a scoundrel said it is just the "appeal to authority" fallacy bounced off a mirror. I suppose we do it because we think any positive acknowledgement endorses the scoundrel's scoundreliness. But that too is a fallacy.

So, to go further, while I disagree with your inclusion of Manson's quote as an example of something to be wary of, I agree entirely with the spirit of your post.

Actually I said "life lessons from awful people" There is a difference.

Thanks for the misquote Thumbsup

With the right illustrator that could be a million dollar idea.

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.

It is a good idea.
A book which addresses the "intent" behind "pretty words" might be something worth the time to work on. It might even fill a niche in the young adult nonfiction genre.

I think it's no stretch to assume most free thinkers despise childhood indoctrination. I for one, am slightly horrified that our public schools may not be teaching the basics of critical thinking.

It's tough for young people to see real life examples of how to discern "intent" and "context", especially if they don't even realize they might be getting mixed signals from authority figures. To help young people learn to think for themselves, they need all they can get.

Hey, Dawkins wrote a book for kids on myth and legend... this might be something to gestate on. Drinking Beverage
