Homeschooling creates "parallel societies" that must be stamped out, according to the German government's defense of its 3rd Reich homeschooling prohibition being used now to justify the imprisonment of a 15-year-old student, Melissa Busekros, whose case is being taken to appeal.
Ein Volk! One Reich under Führer. But I'm just waiting for the German authorities to crack down on the Islamist parallel society. No, that won't happen. Christians are nice people and can be easily bullied. The Muslims will wage worldwide, bloody jihad over a comic.
The [Human Rights Court for the European Union] said schools represent society and "it was in the children's interest to become part of that society."
Of course, the children will be a part of that society, socially, economically, and politically. But the German government thinks that every citizen needs to be programmed like robots with identical left-wing beliefs: atheist, naturalist, evolutionist, postmodernist, socialist, environmental armageddonist, etc. Hey Germany, there's this thing called Freedom. Maybe you've heard of it? It paid you a visit 63 years ago. But you just can't shake your love affair with fascism. Your old flame is kindled again. (Oh, and we know you're helping the terrorists in the Middle East. You've just outsourced your pogroms.)

"The welfare of the child is the central concern in the actions of the Youth Welfare Office."
Yeah, they cared so much for the child that they tore her apart from her family and home, where her welfare was perfectly fine, and put her in prison!

A government education official says the government is working to avoid future conflicts over homeschooling with one particular family by looking "for possibilities to bring the religious convictions of the family into line with the unalterable school attendance requirement."
In a related story, the U.S. teetered toward taking a step to become a police state with newly introduced "hate crime" legislation (in committee) that would violate the Constitution in multiple ways. Basically, it means that I would have to keep my beliefs secret, lest someone gets offended at my words and calls out the Thought Police attack dogs. In Soviet America, government reforms YOU.
