An idiot professor in England, Adam Swift, believes children with a parent who reads to them have an ‘unfair advantage’. [read_more] While he believes this bedtime ritual is beneficial for families he also believes they should feel guilty for doing it,
â€œI donâ€™t think parents reading their children bedtime stories should constantly have in their minds the way that they are unfairly disadvantaging other peopleâ€™s children, but I think they should have that thought occasionally,â€
Professor Swift also suggests it might be a good idea to ban the family to ‘level the playing field’, but then admits parenting child is a good idea.
â€œsimply abolishing the familyâ€ as a way of â€œsolving the social justice problemâ€ because â€œthere would be a more level playing fieldâ€ if we did, but ultimately concluded that â€œit is in the childâ€™s interest to be parentedâ€ and that â€œparenting a child makes for what we call a distinctive and special contribution to the flourishing and well-being of adults.â€
While the good professor can tolerate people reading to their children (as long as they feel some guilt) private schools should be banned. Private schools cannot be justified in any way,
â€œPrivate schooling cannot be justified by appeal to these familial relationship goods,
“Itâ€™s just not the case that in order for a family to realize these intimate, loving, authoritative, affectionate, love-based relationships you need to be able to send your child to an elite private school,â€ he continued, adding that â€œwe could prevent elite private schooling without any real hit to elite family relationships.â€
Because, after all, not all children have parents who care about a good education for their children. So those who do should be penalized. They should not be permitted to take their children out of failing public schools or have tutors for them after school to teach the things public schools refuse to teach, things like real math, writing, and American history. Â Nope. All kids, and their parents, should suffer together. Rather than fighting to raise up our society, and everyone in it, everyone should be poor and have no options. I believe Stalin tried that. It failed, miserably.
