Five "well-educated" children have been ordered into state custody by a court that applied to a second family a ruling taking a 15-year-old homeschooler from her family and sending her to a psychiatric ward.Let this be a lesson to us all: the State (at all levels) doesn't care about you or your welfare. It only exists to exercise and increase it's power over you. At a basic level, this is necessary (such as arresting, prosecuting, and incarcerating a murderer, for instance), but when a government is allowed to expand beyond the basic level of preserving public order, this is what you get. The State will always try to increase it's power, influence, authority, and taxation, all at the expense of your rights.
As an American I have to say that we didn't send our parents and grandparents to crush the Nazis only to have them show up again in the guise of education bureaucrats. We owe it to those who died in that generation to make sure their sacrifice was not in vain.
If you would like to contact the German authorities and express your displeasure over this outrageous and tyrannical behavior, here is the information:
