HS and Cruz

February 8, 2016

The concern many homeschool parents have with Senator Cruz can be summed up in this quote by C. S. Lewis:
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.
We don’t accuse you of hating homeschoolers, Senator Cruz. It’s actually the opposite. We worry that you want to “help” us a little too much.
“The nine most terrifying words in the English language are: I’m from the government and I’m here to help.” – Ronald Reagan
