Universal Children’s Day (20th Nov) ‘Please Don’t Label Me’ – ‘Let Me Grow Up’!


#
 
‘Identity and Violence’ & ‘Power of the Guardians’ Amartya Sen – Bullying. (Esp, by adults, media, and Authorities – ‘The War For Children’s Minds’ Stephen Law) SACRE – NASACRE. "Never has so much power been in the hands of so few" UK, GB, Education.
‘Quangoes of Religiosity’, GB, UK.
 
The billboards are being unveiled to coincide with 20 November, Universal Children’s Day, which is the United Nations ‘day of worldwide fraternity and understanding between children’. 

“We urgently need to raise consciousnesses on this issue,” said Richard Dawkins, Vice President of the BHA, President of RDFRS, and co-sponsor of the campaign. “Nobody would seriously describe a tiny child as a ‘Marxist child’ or an ‘Anarchist child’ or a ‘Post-modernist child’. Yet children are routinely labelled with the religion of their parents. We need to encourage people to think carefully before labelling any child too young to know their own opinions and our adverts will help to do that.http://www.dorsetforyou.com/media/pdf/f/o/Transfer_Junior_or_Middle_School_-_September_2010.pdf

At last, 2011 – Growing Up ‘Primary school children in England will have to learn about evolution and British history under a shake-up of the national curriculum.’ http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/education/8369172.stm What shall We Tell The Children http://www.mindmeister.com/13207398 Do my children get any form of public apology (from the clever imbeciles – not an insult, because I was one of them. Ref, Koestler ‘Bricks to Babel’)?, for being publicly force fed and made to say out loud – Compulsory Worship UK (you can’t be a member of my class –  unless you believe in – so on…) creationism, intelligent design, or some: incredibly muddled form of (PC) polytheism, which could take many hours for parents to unscramble, or make some sense of, to their children, if this is at all possible – being such an insidious and pervasive form of silliness (madness) and heavily indoctrinated to a very susceptible, naturally vulnerable, and totally captured young audience – repeatably, by movements: stand up, sit down, bow heads, say out loud / Hymns / Graces / Prayers, so on…

Independent Schools Council "hummed, hhmmm, the humbugs". Faith Schools and Church Schools. (‘Young Gentlemen Forget’ P.Gibbs writing 1914 – 1918) Why haven’t we learnt anything? "What price Christianity?" Asked another, inevitably, "What have the Churches done to stop war or preach the Gospel of Christ? The Bishop of London, the Archbishop of Canterbury, all those conventional, patriotic, cannon-blessing, banner baptising humbugs. God! They make me tired"!

So What  http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/comment/faith/article6925781.ece Reinforcing the point!

Gordon Brown has played down claims that public money was given to two schools which, the Tories say, have links to Islamist group Hizb ut-Tahrir. Running hard for a ‘cover up’ http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk_politics/8379070.stm

In a report this week the London School of Economics will say that faith schools create a "more socially fragmented system". http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/fivelivebreakfast/2009/04/do_you_believe_in_faith_school.html

My First family, second marriage, bringing up my 18-year-old twins, boy, and girl. I am a third generation Humanist, who has some old handwritten information and notes; collected over many years. Someone may find the articles interesting, or helpful. They could bring back a little ‘reality’, after being ‘shocked’ and ‘brainwashed’, by some malicious group, or institution (REBT Therapy). People should know better, than to do this, to our very young, and the ‘obviously’ vulnerable! Go to easily accessible, non-superstitious knowledge that is not charlatanism! https://charleslizzy.com/2011/08/06/independent-schools-inspectorate-isi-marketing-spirituality-buzzword-or-maybe-even-for-you-to-shiver-at-the-something/ The blog has given me an incentive to order my thoughts, learn, and read up again, after a few non-thinking years of (very silly) imagination and passion. Why not, get your own key to a ‘door’, customise it to suit you, and it can be, all of your very own! Don’t believe, or be led by someone else’s; inherited, stupid, and a very likely (past, and not of today’s) ‘totally preposterous reality’s’. Only some interest in the ‘really big questions’, keeps life above the level of a farce, and very little else! KEEP THINKING! Some of the posts may need some correcting. Interests: REBT Counselling, Atheism, Secularism, Humanism, Psychology, Reading, Popular Science, School Ethos, Philosophy, History, Family, Parenting, Psychology, Horse Riding, Sailing, Rescue Boat Driver, Skiing (Teppichswinger), TV Documentaries, Motorbike Cross Country Riding, Volunteer Sports Stewarding, Writing, Primitive Man, Pre-history, Social Anthropology, British Humanist Association, BHA, Meaning of Life, The Big Questions, Where am I, What am I, Why am I, Hippie Love, Knowledge, Education, Globalisation. Favorite quote: “The world belongs to those who, at least to some degree, have figured it out.” Carl Sagan, ‘The Demon Haunted World’, ‘Contact’, and other famous books DVD ‘Cosmos’. The warning of another and horrendous, “Age of Superstition”. “Isn’t there something deeply absurd in the presumption that children ought to inherit beliefs from their parents. It can be deeply damaging, even lethally divisive. A ‘them’, with an ‘against us’, mentality” – Professor Richard Dawkins. “The will to believe is stronger than mere reason in the vast majority of people” – Dr J.Brown, Army Psychologist of the 1960′s. Humans will believe in almost anything, in fact, they seek it! Why? “98% of us, trained to be just good consumers, let’s train our children to be the 2% who have their very own creativity and discernment”; quote by a famous surreal artist. “The lack of reason brings forth monsters”. “Global interconnectedness is lethal against mass religion, nationalism, racism, and other destructive memeplexes. Let us connect everybody they hate it in restrictive regimes”; from the ‘meme learning group’, Richard Brodie’s book, ‘Virus Of The Mind’ (Richard Brodie a designer for ‘Microsoft Word’). Following on, J.Bronowski, and ‘The Ascent Of Man’ TV series, and a book http://www.bbcshop.com/science+nature/the-ascent-of-man/invt/9781849901154/ with the last DVD in this series, ‘The Long Childhood’ being especially revealing. ‘Prehistory’ and the ‘Making of the Human Mind’ by Colin Renfrew, with P.Wilson’s, ‘The Domestication of the Human Species’, and Nigel Spivey’s, TV series and book, ‘How Art Made The World’, offers some further explanations.
