Knowing self defense is ALWAYS a good thing ;)
Here’s a side note people often never consider. The children in the liberal 60s, when this bs began, and since, were/have been taught pacifism at all costs.
Those kids are now (and have been a while now) heading up significant portions of our military, all of the education system and hold most of the current political offices.
Rhetorical Question 1: Is it a surprise that they continue the to embrace pacifism at all costs, never having been taught an alternative?
Rhetorical Question 2: Is it a surprise that the aggressor nations/philosophies of the world are rapidly taking over?
My point: The kid that grows up on a diet of pussification/pacifism becomes the man/woman cowering and appeasing to the Irans and Obamas of the world. They were taught you were ‘supposed’ to.
Government socialist-entitlement K-12 schooling is our nation's **MOST** serious threat! I seriously doubt that our nation will survive one more generation of voters being subjected to it.
Yet....Conservatives foolishly believe that their child's school is somehow "different". They believe they can deprogram in a few minutes at home the hours of godless and socialist indoctrination to which the child is exposed day after day. Geeze! Liberals don't need to have kids. They get to fill the hearts and minds of the children of conservatives for 13 years, and more, when the kid goes to college.
Personally, I have made a decision. I can no longer have a government school worker for a friend. They are either too evil, too stupid, or too much of a Useful Idiot to be a friend. Yes, government schooling is **that** evil for the child as an individual and for our nation's future.
