Secular Humanist Europe Approaches Totalitarianism
The European Human Rights Court has upheld a German ban on home schooling. The court has essentially agreed that parents have no right to determine what their children learn.
This is just another in the long line of steps the EU has been taking toward a totalitarian government controlling their citizens thoughts and beliefs. "All for the good of the people of course". It has been pointed out the home schooling ban was earlier instituted by the Nazi's, another totalitarian government.
Check out the justification of the court
Although the EU Court admitted that “it cannot be formally said that the applicant parents are seeking to impose their religious convictions against their children’s will,” the Court upheld the German court findings that “the applicant children were unable to foresee the consequences of their parents’ decision for home education because of their young age.”Obviously the "government knows best" mentality will continue until the government controls TV, University, Mass media and the like. The journey towards totalitarianism continues.
