We can examine trends in those parts of our society that jettisoned Judeo-Christian guidance more than a generation ago. For example, atheist regimes, most notably communist tyrannies, almost always oppose any special treatment of the parent-child relationship; Soviet Russia specialized in training children to rat on their parents. The hero of the Young Pioneers (the Russian equivalent to the Boy Scouts), was a youngster called Pavlik Morozov, whose parents were murdered by Stalin after young Pavlik betrayed them for not turning in all the family’s food. They were behaving like parents, trying to ensure his survival rather than patriotically starving along with the rest of the Russian farmers. Pavlik, however, had not been trained to act like a son, so he betrayed his parents to the state. To the communists, he was a model for other children to emulate. Likewise, living in Africa at the time, I well recall that African graduates of Moscow’s revolutionary Lumumba University were instructed to kill a parent upon their return to Africa. This proved that they were "good communists," and had outgrown family and tribal loyalty. Even during the early days of Israel...the Jewish defense force, the Haganah, urged youngsters to turn their parents in for associating with the Palmach, a rival organization. In our own American society, there have recently been lectures in public schools that encourage children to turn to the government if they have a problem with their parents.
