[:en]Transcribed as best I could from the beginning of the video.
‘Instead of saying thank you to children, how do you do? Welcome to the human race. We are playing a GAME and we are playing by the following rules. We want to tell you what the rules are so that you’ll know your way around and when you’ve understood what rules we’re playing by, when you get older, you may be able to invent better ones.
But instead of that, we still retain an attitude to the child that he is on probation. He is not really a human being, he’s a candidate for humanity. And therefore, to preserve the role of parent or to preserve the role of teacher, you have to do what they do in the school of dancing, which is that they string you out, they don’t tell you all the story about dancing, because if they do, they’ll learn everything in two weeks and go away. And you’ll know it. But instead they want to keep you on. And in just this way, we have a whole system of preparation of the child for life, which is always is preparation and never actually gets there.’
