Quote
The Trojan Horse of Child Care
by Allan Carlson, Ph.D, The Howard Center for Family Religion & Society,
www.profam.org, 29-Jan-98
Seventy-eight years ago, in 1920, the great English Catholic journalist G.K. Chesterton wrote, concerning the "child care" issue of his day:

If people cannot mind their own business, it cannot possibly be more economical to pay them to mind each other's business, and still less to mind each other's babies....Ultimately, we are arguing that a woman should not be a mother to her own baby, but a nursemaid to somebody else's baby. But it will not work, even on paper. We cannot all live by taking in each other's washing, especially in the form of pinafores*....
* a sleeveless garment worn by small girls, similar to an apron

Jump ahead now, to the White House Conference on Child Care, held this last October (1997). The most wildly applauded line by the most enthusiastically-received speaker--(California child care consultant Patty Siegel)--was this: (and I quote) "The child care crisis is so acute that child care workers in many areas of the country are unable to find adequate day care for their own children."

Alas, Chesterton's little joke, his reductio ad absurdum* of 1920, has become white hot truth: the core of the crisis-of-the-day.
*reductio ad absurdum - A method of proof which proceeds by stating a proposition and then showing that it results in a contradiction, thus demonstrating the proposition to be false.

The Trojan Horse of Child Care
by Allan Carlson, Ph.D, The Howard Center for Family Religion & Society,
www.profam.org, 29-Jan-98
After a massive increase in spending on child care and development programs, the Department of Defense now cares each day for over 200,000 children in some 800 centers, making the Pentagon the nation's largest child care provider.
...What's going on? Why do new mothers seem to choose day care over home care? Why are businesses under mounting pressure to move into the child care business? Why is a 'downsizing' military shifting resources from maintaining "combat divisions" and building "warships" into the construction of child care centers?

The Trojan Horse of Child Care
by Allan Carlson, Ph.D, The Howard Center for Family Religion & Society,
www.profam.org, 29-Jan-98
(Government support of daycare) is not about what is good for little children; it is about replacing mothers with caregivers paid by and beholden to the state.
This is socialism, my friends, a direct assault on the integrity and independence of families, who through all time have been the only reliable rivals to governmental power. The current Federal system of subsidies and tax preferences for substitute child care directly suppresses families and works to eliminate mother care.
