Turning Schoolchildren Into Informants?

Pavlik Morozov was a well-known name in the Soviet Union and the whole Communist bloc. According to the official story, he was 14-years old in 1932, the year of Stalin’s forceful collectivization of the farms in the Cossack regions of Ukraine, Kuban, and Volga. Pavlik’s family opposed the collectivization and forged documents to prevent the confiscation of grain, livestock, and land which the Communist commissars conducted in their campaign to force the peasants into kolhozy (collective farms). Pavlik, a devout Communist from an early age, and a member of the Youth Communist League, reported on his father’s activities. His father was arrested and sued. In an act of retaliation, Pavlik’s grandfather and uncles rounded up Pavlik and his two 8-year-old brothers and stabbed them to death.

60 years later a Russian journalist discovered that the story was completely made up by the Communist propaganda. A boy named Pavlik did exist, but he was killed by a commissar, and then his father, grandfather, and uncles were killed by a police squad.

But for 50 years the story was told and re-told, of how a young boy became a martyr for reporting on his family to the Soviet authorities. In a children’s comics at the time, Pavlik watches his father counting money and asks him, “What are you doing, Daddy? Selling out the Soviet state?” The father jumps to get the boy and kill him but the boy flees and goes through deep snow to the local police station to report. There a friendly handsome commissar accepts the report and treats Pavlik like a real father. Thus millions of Soviet children were taught in school that their families are potential enemies of the state. And the state, of course, is like that handsome, friendly caring commissar who gives justice to the enemies and treats children in the best possible way.

By the 1980s, the result of such policies was obvious everywhere in the Soviet Union: never before has a culture developed such intense emotional hatred between the generations. The Soviet Union had more teenagers running away from home than any other nation in the world. Children abused parents, parents distrusted and abused children, families were broken, and the percentage of single mothers remains the highest in the world even to this day. The training and encouraging children to be the state’s informants on their parents produced fruit, and it produced it abundantly.

The same anti-family policy apparently is becoming a policy of the United States government. And just like in the Soviet Union, it will implemented through the government schools. Last week, the White House revealed a broad new strategy for “battling homegrown terrorism.” That is, the rampant terrorism that we have here in the United States, greater than even in Iraq and Afghanistan. The strategy is even broader and more all-encompassing than the one our military has in Iraq or Afghanistan because here it will include all levels of government, including local governments and agencies.

And the schools. A major partner in it will be the Department of Education. That is, schools will now become “battleground America,” a place for gathering information, and for training Americans to battle terrorism. It will specifically focus on “preventing” terrorism. “Prevent,” of course, is a word of the vocabulary of the Soviet Union of the times of Stalin, when “enemy infiltration” was “prevented” by a wide-scale system of informants, spies, and infiltrators who will look for “behavioral signals.” That is, people will be encouraged to spy and inform on their neighbors. And why the schools? Because the children will be encouraged to spy and inform on their parents.

The US government has a strategy to turn American schoolchildren into Pavliks. The family now is the potential enemy of the state, and the government is the good-natured, handsome, caring commissar, who will administer justice on the evil parents. All in the name of battling the fictional threat of “homegrown terrorism.”

The results won’t be different than those in the Soviet Union. When the government starts a war against the family, and the fathers do nothing about it, eventually their children take the opportunity to rebel against them. Unless Obama and his commissars are stopped, we will see an increasing generational war. And when generations war against each other, the nation’s ruin is inevitable.

    The aim of judeo-communism, from the French Revolution to the Russian Revolution, to our own upcoming revolution, is to destroy society to the point where easily swayed poor masses of Christians rebel against their natural leaders and wipe them out, leaving only judeo-communists in power. A judeo-apatheid in Russia with Christians moved to Siberian bantustans where they perished by the tens of millions.

      America is turning to Stalinism and Msoism.

    Good little communist kids still wear their red scarfs here in China.

    We need to get rid of the Department of Education on a Federal level. The Government has taken their fear tactics a wee bit too far when they try to 'train' our children to turn on their own parents. The Government has already destroyed too many families with the way they structure their 'welfare department'. Then they call it the Department of social services. They need to change the word social to socialistic. We need to put Ron Paul in the White House and get the Government out of our lives. They have extended their reach into our private lives way to far. I hope America wakes up before November 2012, while we might still have time to redirect our Nation back to her Constitutional roots.

      Well said. Do we really need the federal government at all? Sure, we need a period of transition to ween off of the welfare/military/industrial complex. There is no doubt that free competition and individual rights will enable us to thrive beyond anything possible right now. What we do have currently is the destruction of capital that has been built up over centuries of people saving and innovating. These things take time to destroy, but it sure takes less effort to do that than the hard work of creating for the benefit of the individual and mankind. God bless all who have gone before us who have defended liberty and humanity.

  • orples

    I just made a comment with Ron Paul's name in it. Now, I have to wait for it to be approved. Why do I even waste my time on this site, I wonder? Anyone else being 'regulated'?

      when does Washington have the rights of the citizens of this nation, in short, Washington has more fear in them, than WE the rest of us in this nation. out basic freedoms come from the "" WORD OF GOD"", not from Washington's hands of power. MAY THE WORD OF GOD HAS AND ALWAYS WILL EMPOWER THIS NATION, WASHINGTON CAN ONLY DO A SECOND BEST OF ANYTHING AT ALL. THE POWER THOSE IN WASHINGTON SO ENJOYS, REALLY COMES FROM GOD HIMSELF. BUT WHEN GREED AND CORRUPTION, IS ALOUD TO BE THE MAINSTAY OF DAILY LIFE IN WASHINGTON, THEN THE CITIZENS WILL BECOME SLAVES TO THE PREVAILING EVIL ON THIS LAND OF FREEDOM.

    Great...we have an anti-Semite, closet Nazi posting comments. Thanks for dragging an open intellectual discourse into to the mud of stupid bigotry. Get a life.

  • Les

    Interestingly the term this country now hugs so dearly "Political Correctness" also come from the Soviet Union. There to be PC meant you followed the communist party. Seems we have a lot in common with the former Soviet Union including an all intrusive government.

    This just in obama still sucks and sane people know it.


    Obummer sucks and us sane people know as for kids into cheese eaters just like the commuists taught them.

  • Thurman JLeNormand

    As long as our socialist leaning federal government has any control over public education it will sink further and further into the abyss of group indoctrination.



  • Dean

    We need to get the federal government out of the education system and give authority back to the state and, and better yet, to the local school board.

  • Glenda

    Actually, this disease in our public (and private?) schools has been around for a very long time now. I would say about twenty-five years according to my sons public school years of indoctrination. Thank God his father and I taught him well and to not try to stand up to us for his teachers socialistic and nosey-ness into our family as a unit. He would come home from school almost daily with the teachings of socialist teachers way back then. Of course we had to take the bull by the horn and teach him the truth about what they were trying to do. He is now a wonderful young man who is very interested in the unfortunate indoctrination of not only school children, but young adults and older adults, as are his parents. It is up to us to communicate more than ever the truth of what is going on in this nation and in our schools to our children so that they can have the brains and strength to fight the system, as is.

    All students should read "THIS PERFECT DAY" by Ira Levin (Boys from Brazil, Stepford Wives, Rosemary's Baby author). This book perfectly shows the terrifying consequences of these communist policies. There are adult themes so not for young kids but if you never read it Amazon has it, it was finally rereleased and its a chilling look at a society completely controlled by a central computer for the "good of the family."


    A very interesting article. I had heard the story of Pavlik a few years ago. Given the rush of events since 9-11 and particularly with-in the last couple days, it is too late to turn things around by the ballot box. The tyrants have gone too far and are about to face unintended consequences. Civil war by spring perhaps?

  • Rob01

    Our government's new policy should surprise no one. When he came to power in Germany, having children denounce parents, teachers report what students said to the Gestapo, the clergy turning in their anti-state laymen, quickly became the policy of his Third Reich. It is the way of life in totalitarian systems. Everyone lives in fear. This includes the leaders, all the way to the top. There, the leader lives in fear too. There were some 42 attempts on Hitler's life during his tenure.

  • coster

    You know, I totally agree with most of you, but the sad part is everyone is scared of Obama so noone has the guts to do anything about it. I read these same comments day in and day out but what anyone doing about it?? Just exactly the same thing as the bunch I read yesterday, nothing. It's going to take more than a bunch of jabber to get rid of him. He already has the elections rigged so you may as well console yourself that he's there to stay. Not just another four years, but with Marshall Law, he doesn't figure on ever living anywhere else. I only hope those of you who voted him in, realize what you've done and are the first to be shipped out to F.E.M.A camps.

    This has been going on for decades in our public schools. They have just finally pushed the agenda far enough that people are now beginning to question it. This is just one of the many reasons we home-school our children. They have decided the parents should really have no say in how the kids are raised, the state will give them their values. America (Amerika) has not been a free country in a long, LONG time.

    Some of us "Baby-Boomers" have been talking for years about the encroachment on our liberties and freedoms,...but know this,...each time you called someone a "conspiracy theorist", or laughed at someone being roasted as a "conspiracy theorist",...you contributed to the current level of illegal activities now being foisted on the American People en'mass,..

    ...let's see how many are laughing when a husband, wife, child, aunt, uncle or other relative simply vanishes from the face of the planet,...and much like the "no-fly-list",...no one will tell you where the relative is, were they arrested by "the state", or if and or when they may or may not be released,...are we all laughing now?

    Webster Groves-The Life of an Insane Family

    America The Prostrate

    In a simplistic sort of way,
    Across a desert lit by the moon.
    America lay prostrate,
    Lulled by prosperity’s tune.

    Beautiful thing in a world gone mad,
    Everyone knows the lies being spoke.
    They spill from the mouths of bankrupt souls,
    Leaderless people, morally broke.

    The globe spins on, a compact disc,
    Television soothes the planet.
    Hard drives quietly think away,
    Politicians run the gamut.

    Prostrate pricks, sucking away,
    At America’s aging tit.
    Pay up now, or go to jail,
    They care less, how you take the hit.

    They act as if it will never end,
    The Nazis felt much the same.
    Fortify your home, your town,
    These criminals have no real shame.

    The knock on the door will surely come,
    Midnight terror of the state.
    Theft, lies, fraud and deceit,
    Social incubators of pure hate.

    Hang from a rope, they surely will,
    These prophets of civic duty.
    After the riots, the death, the trials,
    Before these pirates split the booty.
