The Non-Equivalence of Moral Evaluations for Adults and Children

Danny at Home Schooling Dad makes what looks like a rhetorical point, but which is actually far more than that.

"When you force by gun point to share my wealth, I don't call it donation, it's theft (or taxation). When you force a person to do your menial job, it's called slavery. When a person is forced to have sex, it's called rape.When people are taught by force, what do most people call it? That's right, education. [I believe that the correct term is "schooling."]
