Manipulating children's devotion

From Wikinormous

During the American presidential campaign in 2008, a short video of Californian children singing their praise for presidential candidate Barack Obama created a heated debate which largely took place on YouTube with various remixes and mashups of the original video.

Usually, the videos compared the children's zeal and devotion for Obama with similar enthusiasm expressed by children for dictators like Adolf Hitler and Mao Tse Tung.

A typical video with added Nazigerman propaganda to the original video is presented in the first example video. The second clip is a more sophisticated video, which shows a comparison of the enthusiastic Americans with Cuban children of the same age singing praise for Castro, guides the viewer to the question whether the methods of manipulating children are the same or different in democracies and dictatorships.

”It is my ambition to create a Britain in which there is a clear expectation that all young people will undertake some service to their community, and where community service will become a normal part of growing up in Britain. ...

”local community organisations and charities.” i.e National Youth Service on the horizon 2011, should Labour be in power next term. It rings eerily similar to Common Purpose and Demos et al. it also connects to the ever hijacking of natural grass root movements that are in themselves (i.e. should be) holarchical and idealistic rather than covertly driven through hierarchical collectivism. A deceptive way of making voluntarism mandatory by law or by societal group think (pressure).
