Leftist Wants California to Abolish Parenthood, Make Parents Give Away Their Kids to Achieve “Equity” by P.J. Gladnick for Life News
GNN Note – It’s time, once again, to bring out the baby elephant and remind everybody that if we were discussing a baby elephant progressive liberals would be screaming from the roof tops they are called parents and their babies belonged to them, not the zoo. / END
Sometimes you read something that might make you exclaim, “Just plain… nuts.” Such was probably the case when most normal people saw a column by Joe Mathews published in the Ventura County Star on Thursday, “California should abolish parenthood, in the name of equity.”
If you think the author wrote this from an asylum you would be wrong. In fact, Mathews was employed by the Los Angeles Times for eight years. However, when you read his rantings for “equity” you might think he belongs in some sort of institution.
If California is ever going to achieve true equity, the state must require parents to give away their children.
Today’s Californians often hold up equity — the goal of a just society completely free from bias — as our greatest value. Gov. Gavin Newsom makes decisions through “an equity lens.” Institutions from dance ensembles to tech companies have publicly pledged themselves to equity.
But their promises are no match for the power of parents.
Fathers and mothers with greater wealth and education are more likely to transfer these advantages to their children, compounding privilege over generations. As a result, children of less advantaged parents face an uphill struggle, social mobility has stalled, and democracy has been corrupted. More Californians are abandoning the dream; a recent Public Policy Institute of California poll found declining belief in the notion that you can get ahead through hard work.
And now comes Mathews “solution” that qualifies him for institutionalization.
My solution — making raising your own children illegal — is simple, and while we wait for the legislation to pass, we can act now: the rich and poor should trade kids, and homeowners might swap children with their homeless neighbors.
Now, I recognize that some naysayers will dismiss such a policy as ghastly, even totalitarian. But my proposal is quite modest, a fusion of traditional philosophy and today’s most common political obsessions.
