<The majority of the voting public are in favour of public education. It is they who impose their will (through laws about compulsory school attendance, truancy and teacher accreditation) on the minority who don't agree with the value of the public education system, who would send their children to private schools or even educate them at home. Talk about abuse of power.>

That's not an abuse of power. That's how the system works.

So it's "abuse" when it's something someone else wants, but it's "the way the system works" when it's something you agree with?
