Quote Jacques Roux:
What's disturbing is radical libertarian individualists who refuse to acknowledge that they are part of a larger social order.
Show me one single libertarian work (providing you've actually READ any, which I doubt) that say that people should live alone, away from society, in a vacuum.
There are none. Society is a vitally important thing. What I am protesting is your vile view that it is ethical for the government to force people into your specific vision of society.
Just because an individual has produced a child does not make that individual any more the 'owner' of that child than the rest of We the People, especially when the natural parent does not protect -- or cannot protect -- the child from Corporate.
I specifically stated in my last comment that neither the parent NOR society owns an individual. The individual owns their own destiny from the moment they were born. As someone who grew up in a dysfunctional family and sees the dysfunction of today's society, I would know.
