The second step was the lack of discipline, primarily, toilet training. The average person has no idea the importance of this activity.
What toilet training does, when begun very early, is to teach the child that s/he can control ‘their world’. When a child realises that s/he can control their bowels, they gain a sense of self, a sense of power.
By not toilet training a child, s/he remains helpless. This feeling of being at the ‘mercy’ of the environment becomes part of them.
Along with not toilet training there is no attempt to discipline. Children do what they please. They develop no self control.
This is useful in a population of sheep, where one can use their own behaviour to disqualify them.
The child, accustomed to getting what s/he wants grows to be an obnoxious individual who can easily be fired for insubordination.
