 Eric Margolis | Foreign Correspondent : The left-wing Childrens Crusade
Instead of going to Florence to study art, or to Ft. Lauderdale to study girls, many of todays students have joined the leftwing Childrens Crusade to overthrow dads filthy capitalism which provides them the luxury of flying to Europe to protest the plight of Africa.
The collapse of the Soviet Union, and partial revelation of the monstrous crimes of Stalin and Mao, dealt fatal blows to old-style communism, and forced Europes and Americas socialists to move toward the center.
Exhibit A. I was absolutely flabbergasted last summer when the head of the University of Torontos Russian Studies department told me with the giddy excitement that she was to receive a multi-million dollar government grant to ‘rehabilitate Stalins memory.

But the children were determined to go ahead with the march, in spite of the imminent danger.
It was the first day of the march,August l8th.The huge procession of Bruderhof children and adults and the family and supporters of men on death row set off from the Farmington, Pennsylvania mountain enclave on their arduous trek through inauspicious redneck counties and on down rain-slicked highways.

LOS ANGELES, Nov. 4 /U.S. Newswire/ -- Lawrence Smith, a Michigan father, and Vicky Dunkle, a Pennsylvania mother, have recently joined forces in a crusade to expose the fraud of child psychiatric diagnoses and the dangers of the drugs being prescribed.
Dunkle has filed a lawsuit against the psychiatrist who prescribed the deadly drugs to her daughter, and both parents exemplify the increasing problem faced by many parents today: being coerced by school personnel to drug their children, and never being warned about the documented risks of the drugs prescribed to "treat" them.

Children are so frequently cited as the beneficiaries of different policy proposals that the term has virtually become a distinctive class.
The area of environmental protection is where regular appeals to parental concern for the welfare of their offspring are made the most.
People must be concerned about health risks to children but some new environmental policy initiatives proposed ostensibly in the interests of protecting children actually address relatively minor or unproven dangers.

to the Koppelberg hill, in the side of which a door suddenly opened, by which he entered and the children after him, all but one who was lame and could not follow fast enough to reach the door before it shut again.
Some trace the origin of the legend to the Childrens Crusade of 1211; others to an abduction of children; and others to a dancing mania which seized upon some of the young people of Hameln who left the town on a mad pilgrimage from which they never returned.
Curious evidence that the story rests on a basis of truth is given by the fact that the Koppelberg is not one of the imposing hills by which Hameln is surrounded, but no more than a slight elevation of the ground, barely high enough to hide the children from view as they left the town.
