I genuinely think shit like this is what promotes antisocial behavior in children. As in clinically antisocial, not just a synonym for introverted.

Children learn hundreds of new words and new things every week. That’s their entire purpose in life at that age.

Deliberately lying to them about how basic reality works for extended periods of time is likely what causes the neural short circuits of religion and conservatism.

You're teaching your kid to manipulate others to get what they want. Fuck that.

Naw, religion and conservatism are just the easy answers people arrive at when they fail to resolve all of the dissonance on their own with a child's brain.

The reason people hold those views in to adulthood is quite simply because they are still mentally children. They are underdeveloped losers that society has not yet decided are a problem quite literally on the same level as other developmental issues.
