The Pentateuch does have quite a few cases where the sins of the fathers are visited on the sons, which contrasts with some other religions' view that each person starts with an empty slate. Still other religions (those that believe in reincarnation) believe that children do not start with an empty slate, but that the burden of 'sin' is still personal.

As a Jew, I must say that the first makes more sense to me. Judaism can only be fully practiced in a community, and therefore the obligations and agreements of the community, for good and for bad, get passed on to the new members. This does not mean that a child is personally liable for the sins of his forefathers, but does mean that the next generation is liable for the failings of the previous generation.

Compare and contrast with the modern idea of a nation. Later generations of a nation certainly are bound by the agreements made by earlier generations.
Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.
