When it comes to politics, I usually find myself stressing ((I don’t necessarily mean distressing, but just stressing in general.)) over American issues.
Today I hang my head and grieve for our friends to the North, where in Quebec a 12 year old girl is able to have a judge overturn her father’s disciplinary grounding.
I’m halfway through the book Brave New World ((Disclosure: This is an affiliate link.)) by Aldous Huxley; in it, the concept of parentage is one for the history books. The state raises children, and the state controls them through pleasure. Rampant and experiential sexuality is encouraged as young as possible.
Today, seventy-six years later, a Canadian father is unable to discipline his preteen daughter for posting inappropriate pictures of herself on the Internet.
I hear a lot of people comparing certain things with 1984, but folks, I submit we’re heading fullspeed into a collision with a truly brave new world.
