BBC NEWS | Education | Warning over narcissistic pupils

You begin with a wacky liberal creed that insists the only lifestyle  worthy of the name is "alternative". You marginalise and then demonise traditional values and make the family irrelevant. Then you "celebrate" alternative as though it is orthodox, the more alternative the more orthodox, and, having undermined so much that contributes to the health and well-being  of our children, you make it the business of the schools and other agencies to pick up the pieces.
