Government and Kids|
Sep 4, 2002, 2:31p
Let's take away some more responsibilities from the parents. LA Unified School District has made illegal soda vending machines, in an effort to curb child obesity. Starting January 2004, no more sodas will be sold on LAUSD campuses. Here is yet another example. Now, we're teaching kids at a young age to depend on governmental orders rather than their and their parents' own senses. Yet another insult to an individual's sense of responsibility. Soon, we're going to legalize the definition of "right" and "wrong". We'll account for any sort of occurrence, however rare, and plop it down into our procedural handbook. We'll start giving them to kids as newborns, with the first edition as a picture book illustrating the rules they must follow. Even better, we'll tax the money out of them to pay for this subscription, and each year the kid will get a new book in the mail telling him how to think. What a lovely future for the individual. Oh wait, aren't we already there with religion and the Bible, for example? And yet, the individual still lives on. At least we know that we won't die that quietly. In fact, we'll probably have to kill everyone. So maybe the death of society will require the death of the individual. But will it be worth it?
