Kindergarten (the "children's garden") was developed by socialist minded German educators to "help" children 'discover' and unite upon their common "self-interest."  It was to become the child's first classroom experience of "building relationship" with other children, finding and "building relationship" upon "common ground" instead of upon their parent's standards (which would divide them from one another).  It was designed to create an environment where the children could be 'liberated' from their parent's authority, circumventing, i.e., setting aside their parent's standards, restraints, and beliefs (for the 'moment'), in order to "help" the children initiate and sustain relationship with one another, basing their relationship upon "feelings" (the "new" world order) instead of upon their parent's beliefs (the "old" world order).
