A liberal member of the California Assembly will introduce legislation this week to ban spanking in California. We’re not talking about a feel-good bill that only applies to public schools or public places. State Assembly Speaker Pro Tem Sally Lieber, D-Mountain View, plans to put a virtual nanny into every private home.

The new law would make it illegal to spank children 3 years old or younger. The monstrous parents who disobey the Super-nanny statute in their homes could go to jail for a year and face a $1,000 fine.

So in the future, when your 3-year old chases a ball into the street for the twelfth time, you are expected to politely explain the error without hurting his feelings, increase his daily dose of Riddlin, and schedule eight more sessions of publicly funded therapy.

Liberals know how to raise your child best. Just ask Sally Lieber. Pay no attention to the fact that she doesn’t have any children of her own — such experiences aren’t necessary for expert parenting by a State Super-nanny. After all, Lieber is versed in the most advanced methods, academic techniques and theories about the matter. She understands what your child needs because, well, she once read a psychology book.

To twist a Robert Frost passage, this is a socialist road that should be less traveled. While liberal legislators in California have succeeded in filling the public school curriculum with politically correct experimental mush, the option exists to escape with your children into private schools. But when the state converts every private home into a public commune, what is the option to escape such madness? There is no alternative but to raise children in your home.

Winston Churchill famously said “Any man who is under 30, and is not a liberal, has not heart; and any man who is over 30, and is not a conservative, has no brains.” So in Churchill’s world, no liberal is mature enough to procreate. For better parenting, therefore, consider the cheeky notion that responsible reproduction should wait for the sensible conservative awareness that maturity hopefully brings.

I often pity the children of liberal social experimentation and the multitudes of uninformed parents who absorb the unproven theories. Not only do these children have to confront the challenges that all kids face growing up, they must also overcome the damage inflicted by their parents, many of whom read flawed parenting books brought to you by the new social order. And overcoming the spineless confusion later must be a very tough road indeed for these poor kids.

Many of the Social Engineers are willing participants in single-family households and consider that fact as merely inconvenient to child raising. They fill their kids with drugs because modern theories don’t allow for boys being boys. They spoil and soften kids with carrots only, when carrots and sticks are proven to build more responsible adults.

They experiment with each dubious new theory that they read in the bathtub, ignoring the collective wisdom produced by generations of experience. Curiously in the new child-raising playbook, the child’s fragile feelings are elevated to supremacy above even his own best interest. You see, only an abominable parent would cause a thumb sucking two year old to cry after he dashes in front of a car.

I am saddened when watching the potential train wrecks look adoringly into the eyes of dimwit parents. The kids won’t know any better until they are a Churchill 30, and meanwhile the public schools just reinforce the mess by following the moral relativist curriculum.

And unfortunately it isn’t enough for these social engineers to damage their own children. They are so sure of the madness that they come after your kids as well.

And that’s why Sally Lieber is introducing a nanny-state bill in California this week. Parents and legislators who engage in such liberal social experimentation should be spanked for their impetulent behavior.
