Ron Paul calls for a homeschool revolution

Ron Paul doesn’t want reform—he wants a revolution! He calls it “the freedom revolution,” and he has been advocating it for 30 years. But you can’t force people to be free. They have to want it and choose it. So the foundations of liberty must be laid in an education for liberty. So in his latest book, The School Revolution, Paul argues that “there can be no revolution without a revolution in education.”

Rep. Paul, R-Texas, advocates homeschooling on account of the parental control it allows over the structure and content of education and the responsibility for these things it encourages: “There can be no increase in liberty without a parallel increase in responsibility.” The reason for this is another of his frequent lessons: “Self-government is the basis of liberty.” Public education by its nature teaches government dependence and the virtues of bureaucratic management. Families teach ...

Apparently, you didn't read the second page of that obituary, Mike. The NYT was very circumspect about a few things except the fact that Walker was a queer. Probably a less no-holds-barred short bio can be found at, Edwin Walker Mini-Biography, or the one in the Daily Beast, The Man Oswald First Tried to Kill Before JFK where it is implied that Walker and Billy James Hargis had a really, really close relationship I don't suggest wondering around the "Daily Beast" that much, but the article itself is quite interesting. Oh, Billy J., makes Joel Osteen look like a Saint.

I thought jpw would be around here to help blame the various immoral actions of these men on the Texas water, some of which is highly naturally fluoridated. While these men may had perfect teeth, they were suffering from rot of the brain. Also Ron Paul and Walker apparently had one thing in common, Antisemitism. One thing that Hargis had right, is that he was pro-Israel.

Long live Texas. btw "right wing" is the center as defined by the left wing. You know how it goes Jim. The further you go from the center, the further the center appears to be. There are some who continually defend the policies and programs of the left wing extremist in charge, yet think they are thereby independent and centered, just as an example.

Politics and arguing over examples aside, is Ron right, or not?
Right about what? Whether homeschooling increases liberty, whether parental control is a good thing, whether public ed. teaches dependence, whether the latter should be defunded (federally or locally). He offers many propositions, which makes your question ambiguous.

But one cannot leave politics aside here, for politics is merely applied philosophy, & so is education. For what is worth knowing? And what is knowledge anyway? These are deeply philosophical questions. Some doubt that knowledge is even possible.

His feminist critic does raise a practical point: You can't have homeschool w/o at least one parent at home, which usually means the mother. That will make homeschooling a hard pill for most to swallow these days.

Sorry about this, Swedish Church used as a weapon against Israel I'm also sorry to say, Randy like Ronney seems to be a case of "Like father, like son."

Christian Palestinianism this one got messed up in an earlier post, and I decided to give you a bonus if I were going to post using a tablet.

Like some Ronney like a broken clock, is only right by accident.

Well like I said I chose him because he's well known and he is guilty of taking children away from their parents in order to indoctrinate them. The book/documentary IndoctriNation was an eye opener on how far back the whole system goes. It's definitely something that is swept under the rug

Homeschool revolution? well first of all, Ron Paul better not have anything to do with any homeschool revolution, or we'll not only have public school 1st graders smoking pot, but also homeschooled ones as well. Beside pot smoking Ron would have, too.

If parents can't have more influence over children who will be under their control completely for the first five years of their lives, and at least 16 hours a day for the until they're out on their own.

Anyway, atheists and Muhammadans, , as I pointed out in the article, many Muslims would want to homeschool, to make sure their children aren't educated, q.v.,How Muslims defend Islam: Understanding the Muslim Mind!. If you wonder around this site enough you'll find it a secular site, not a Christian one, though the article itself bring up some interesting points, which no doubt many Christians would agree with, now a really good site,Encouraging and supporting Christian families who educate their children at home

You didn't say that initially, leaving the impression it all started with him. I'm touchy about historical misrepresentation & the general ignorance about the history of American gov't schooling. Nazis had nothing to do with that.

Another reason is, bringing up Nazism is a standard inflammatory tactic used by all sorts of causes, Right & Left. Just because the Nazis did something doesn't automatically make it wrong; you have to do the proof or else you commit the Genetic Fallacy.

Example: the Nazis made their trains run on time. Therefore, we should not. Sounds dumb, doesn't it?

Touchy subject? He's one of MANY examples. I chose to use him because he's well known.

Hitler knew the power parents had over their children so he made homeschooling illegal.
Prussia, starting with Frederick II, had compulsory schools long before Hitler, & this was what impressed 19th-century American Progressives like Horace Mann.

And in 1922, Oregon had its Compulsory Education Act, which was struck down by the Supreme Court in 1925.

So don't single out the Nazis on this issue.

Public schools are just a means for the government to indoctrinate children. Hitler knew the power parents had over their children so he made homeschooling illegal. By doing so, he got the children at a young age and indoctrinated them with his agenda. Education is not neutral grounds-Luke 6:40. Christian parents need to obey God (Deuteronomy 6:5-9) and Biblically (Proverbs 1:7 KJV) educate their children at home. And Miss Kay, Titus 2:5 and 1 Timothy 5:14 makes it clear that a woman has no business working outside the home.
