The State as
State Intrusion into the Sanctity and Privacy of the Family
"We must remove
the children from the crude influence of their families.
We must take them over and, to speak frankly, nationalize them"
"[T]he most vulnerable children in our society ... are in our care; we, the state, are their parents"
"The first thing
that a totalitarian regime tries to do is to get at the children,
to distance them from the subversive, varied influences of their families,
and indoctrinate them in their rulers' view of the world"
"Above all things, the child needs protecting from the state"
Scotland's Named Persons Scheme
Picture by NO2NP
encouraged to imagine Scotland as a garden with each child as a special plant
growing within it.
They were told that 'all the adults in their lives' are 'Gardeners' and the Named Person is the 'Head Gardner'."

"Say NO to the Named Person Scheme.
The Scottish Government's planned Named Person scheme will
undermine parents' responsibility for their own children and allow
state officials unprecedented powers to interfere with family life.
That's why so many are saying NO2NP... Undermines parents
"In the old communist countries, the regimes also encourage denunciations by children, who usually had little idea what would follow. In Soviet cities, until 1991, there were statures of a little monster called Pavlik Morozov, who turned his own parents in to the secret police for hoarding grain. Schoolchildren would be marched to these shrines of evil and told to revere his memory ... because he had betrayed his parents to the party. If you knew what it represented, it was a bit like stumbling across a graven image of Moloch" [source and source].
"The secret police of Romanian dictator Nicolae Ceausescu recruited thousands of children to spy on parents, schoolfriends and teachers, according to communist-era archives" [source].
"[R]uthless governments, from the Soviets to Chairman Mao, cultivated zealous little police-kids ... In Orwell's 1984 it was 'almost normal for people over 30 to be frightened of their own children'" [source].
"Today ... children are taught (as they were in Communist East Germany for instance) to spy on their parents. This from my friend Edward Spalton: 'And from my next door neighbour, concerning the local primary school. He had his grandson to stay for the weekend and saw that the lad was looking in the dustbins. "Why are you doing that?" he asked. "To see if you're recycling" was the answer. "What if I'm not?" he asked. "Then I have to tell teacher"'" [source].
"Scotland's proposed 'Named Person' Scheme ... would appoint a state guardian to every child ... legislation regarding safeguarding rules in schools encourage children to report abuse directly to social services from the school phones - without the aid or judgment of trained staff" [source].

"God gave children to parents, not to the State, to love, nurture, teach, discipline, and train up into adulthood. It does not take a 'village' or the 'Collective' or State-run 'Care' homes to raise a child; it takes a loving and biological/adoptive/foster family. Please see the article Communism and the Family for the ideology underlying the 'Collective'.
