Let's end the family?

  Well, now some progressives among us are suggesting that children need to be taken away from their parents and given to the government to raise.
  This is because some philosophers and sociologists have determined that being raised in happy families gives an "unfair advantage" to children, whereas children raised in homes where parents pretty much ignore them are disadvantaged.
  How would this work?
  You'd just lose ownership of your kids because, you know, it takes a village.
  A great example of this is found in the movie The Giver based on the dystopian novel where children are taken from their parents to be given to other families, sort of like a state nursery. No one gets too attached because they are not blood relatives; the purpose of all this is unity and happiness.
  The primary thought that runs through the movie is this: "When people have the power to choose, they choose wrong. Every single time."
  Wrong, meaning the state knows better than you how to shape your reality, such as choosing when it's time to die, particularly for the very young and the old (old being the determination of the state) who tend to be more medically expensive.  Sound like the IPAB created by Democrats in 2010, an unelected body that gets to decide "fiscal" matters like rationing care and medicine?
  From Ed Driscoll's column about The Giver movie at PJ Media:
In her initial appearances as a giant hologram and with her clipped and condescending speech patterns, Meryl Streep as the “Chief Elder” seems eerily reminiscent of Hillary Clinton — and indeed The Community is the futuristic yet primitive village that Hillary believes it takes to raise a child. Near the end of the film, Streep’s Chief Elder sums up the theme of the film in a line that’s right of the Clinton/Obama playbook: “When people have the power to choose, they choose wrong. Every single time.” Which neatly ties together Bill Clinton’s 1999 line on tax cuts and returning the budget surplus of that era back to the taxpayers: “We could give it all back to you and hope you spend it right. . . . Do you really want to run the risk of squandering this surplus?” And Hillary’s infamous 2004 promise that “We’re going to take things away from you on behalf of the common good.”
  Here's a trailer of this excellent movie:

  While the idea of unifying the collective by separating the family seems absurd now, one has to wonder where we are headed considering that right is wrong and up is down these days. 
  The fact that this is even being proposed, suggested or propagated is a warning. 
  As usual, Leftists find the solutions to problems by lowering the standard. To make everyone equal, we must discourage innovation, excellence and the "advantage" of having parents who love us.
  Equality means, as in Vonnegut's Harrison Bergeron, that no one should have any advantage over anyone else thus, the beautiful are masked, the strong are weighted and the intelligent's thoughts are interrupted.
  Now that's equality.


  1. I'm hearing more about "full service school" whose proponents say would do more than just teach whatever the hell that means. What I find interesting is while parents may lose custody or be jailed for what family services deems bad parenting everyday we read of abuse by the school employees and no one is ever fired. Kids are served charred burritos covered with melted plastic and no one is fired. A school bus driver terrifies his riders telling them he won't let them go home and nothing bad happens to him. If something like that had happened when I was in grade school the parents would have harassed him until he moved out of the county.

  2. I shudder to think what "full service school" entails. The greatest disappointment to me as a blogger is that the American public appears to have given up, worn down from all the perversions. I just don't understand why people don't bombard local, state and federal facilities with protests. This is probably because Obama and now the rest of the mob known as Congress have absolutely ignored the wishes of the people, thereby setting a precedent for getting elected and then pretty much doing whatever you want. Dangerous territory.
