One of Germany's chief objections to allowing homeschooling is that homeschoolers would "create a parallel society." The latest victims of the war on home education are the Dudeks in the state of Hesse (home of the Hessians of Revolutionary war fame or shame, yes), and the difficulties of this family are related to their dedication to children, church, and home.
Or in German, "Kinder, Kueche, Kirche." What is, then, the parallel society that the German government is so strongly striving against? A few generations ago, we would have simply called that society "Germany," and we must come to the uncomfortable conclusion that the state is once again selbstmordsuchtig--seeking its own suicide in the destruction of the culture that gave it its existence.
Pray for the Dudeks, and send them a note if you can. Address can be found in the link.
