Indoctrination*

Eight year old daughter and libertarian-in-training: “Why do we have to say the pledge of allegiance at school every day?”

Me: “Because they’re communists.”

Daughter: “Commu-WHAT!?”

Me: *Laughs* “Communists.”

Daughter: “What’s a communist?”

Me: “It’d take too long to explain. Let’s just say the pledge is a form of indoctrination.”

* Or: Fun with hyperbole, just wish it were more hyperbole and less close to reality.
