Yet another weird SF fan

I'm a mathematician, a libertarian, and a science-fiction fan. Common sense? What's that?

This Is Nothing New

Melissa Harris-Perry's recent statement “that kids belong to whole communities” (criticized here here and all over the dextrosphere) is being treated as though it were something new. It isn't. We saw the same nonsense openly expressed over three decades ago and it's almost certainly older.

By the way, the reason that children do not belong to the state isn't that they belong to their parents; it's that they belong to themselves.

The idea that people, all people, not only children are creatures of the state is a lot of things, but it isn’t nonsense. It is one idea in an ideology which probably can’t be named publicly, but which ruled much of the Earth for a brief time in the 20th century.

That implies the existence of a sinestrosphere.

I like it.

Also, the eighties were three decades ago? Yikes.
