comment Explain Pre-Teens and Teens the problems of a surveillance state and internet privacy
The intent seems positive, but it doesn't seem connected to parenting. Can you clarify what it is you are asking - is it about how to teach thought experiments/philosophical constructs?

aparente - can you please review and edit your post. Of your points, only the Suzuki violin one actually answers the question, and of that, only the first sentence is an answer (the second is an unrelated opinion piece)

comment I want to expose my 5-year-old daughter to boys and girls toys equally, but she just turned her nose up at Star Wars. What do I do?
Gabe - there is nothing innately girly about ponies - some girls like them, some hate them. I agree that kids have a lot of their personality installed, but they are all different. My middle daughter is a fighter, climber, runner and loves cars etc. My son is more measured and studious. And my youngest daughter is as girly as they come - into rainbows, unicorns and pink. All different. Nothing innate about any of their interests.

comment Can children be educated without a family by professionals?
anonymous - why not put in the effort yourself to learn and train yourself to be what you need to be for your child? You may think that you are under-qualified, but as those above mentioned, 'family' has worked for thousands of years despite the lack of training. Sure, the modern world has moved away a bit from extended family living in the same house providing experience across generations, but you can make that happen if you want to.
