Children can figure things out ...

... *IF* they are allowed to.

I remember I was 7 years old when I first started questioning authority, asking questions, and basically telling adults they were wrong if they couldn't give me real answers.

Ironically, it was the lie of Santa Claus that made me realize things are not always what they appear to be.

Let kids know there is another way of looking at things, let them compare and contrast, and they can figure it out. The problem is that most adults have bought into lies, and their kids have no other viewpoint, and that's how indoctrination sets in.
