Sounds like there are a lot of recovering progressives in here, judging by the hate-posts. These are the types that think that the "Family Ties" sitcom teaches an actionable, reality-based parenting model.
Some of it does seem a little over the top but I still think it's great.
Perhaps in future parenting experiments the little Leninist might be given a choice:
1) communism, where his property is "redistributed" and his life "centrally planned"
2) laissez faire, where his property is restored and his individuality respected.
Now, if it were me and I chose communism, I would proceed to contact CPS and snitch out my parents like any good little Orwellian youth brigade would.
