The Institute of Public Affairs is coming to indoctrinate your children with an “Open Minds Workshop”, which sounds like a slippery slope to who knows what! The flyer for the IPA’s workshop, to be held in Melbourne in October, says:
“The Institute of Public Affairs believes and understands that the distinct traditions of Western Civilisation should be an integral part of every young Australian’s education and formation.”
To that end, the think tank is running a workshop aimed at 15- and 16-year-olds, with three sessions covering Plato, the Magna Carta and the Declaration of Independence. Sounds like a great way to spend a Saturday. The freedom-loving teenagers will learn from two actual high school teachers, Susan Knopfelmacher and Richard Peterson, as well as the IPA’s John Roskam and Bella D’Abrera. The workshop is part of the IPA’s “Generation Liberty” program, which is “dedicated to advancing the ideas of liberty and freedom on Australian university campuses”:
“A non-partisan group which has no affiliation with any political party, Generation Liberty aims to provide students with a better understanding of how free markets and individual liberty can create social change by enabling human flourishing.
Generation Liberty seeks to connect students from all walks of life on university campuses and provide support for pro-liberty students and student organisations across Australia.”
Are young people ready for this? What will they do with such dangerous information?
