If it’s up to Melissa Harris-Perry—a political science professor at Tulane—children will belong to the community.
“We have never invested as much in public education as we should have, because we’ve always had kind of a private notion of children,” Harris-Perry stupidly argued. “So part of it is, we have to break through our kind of private idea that kids belong to their parents, or kids belong to their families, and recognize that kids belong to whole communities. Once it’s everybody’s responsibility and not just the household’s, then we start making better investments.”
Why is she so stupid in making such argument/comment?
Let’s think back to…Uncle Mao’s children in China and Uncle Ho’s children in Vietnam. They were collectively property of the community—aka government. They were brain-washed by the education system that was owned by the community—aka government.
Were they better? For those of us who lived in China or Vietnam before the recent changes in these nations, the answer is easy—no. For those who don’t know squat about communism, they will never get it—like Ms Harris-Perry.
So, the next time you hear the left bring up “collective children”, you should know…Uncle Mao Zedong tried it…Uncle Ho-chi-Minh tried it…They both failed. Uncle O(bama) will fail too if he tries.
Children are parents’ responsibilities—not the state. If you can’t handle this fact, don’t have any—and we thank you for not having any.
