© 2006 WorldNetDaily.com

A Nazi-era law requiring all children to attend public school, to avoid "the emergence of parallel societies based on separate philosophical convictions" that could be taught by parents at home, apparently is triggering a Nazi-like response from police.

The word comes from Netzwerk Bildungsfreiheit, or Network for Freedom in Education, which confirmed that children in a family in Bissingen, in the state of Baden-Wuerttemberg, have been forcibly hauled to a public school.

A separate weblog in the United States noted the same tragedy. (Read more...)

I made it clear to anyone who cared to listen at the time that one of SOLO's first projects would be to exorcise the shocking homophobia that has disgraced the Objectivist movement since Day One - to expose it to the lights of day and reason, show it to be the grotesquery that it is and fiercely proclaim how alien it is to a philosophy that sets such store by the identification of reality.
