I didn't think this thread would become an excuse to bash socialism.
I'm very liberal myself and I don't want people to live the by the lowest denominator. I would certainly want to lowest denominator to be enhanced and given the chance but not by removing the chances of the people that succeed.
Once again, ATS poster really really don't understand how liberals think.

This is just crazy. So if your raising a child in a loving home your giving him/her an unfair advantage?

How exactly do you interpret this then:
‘I don’t think parents reading their children bedtime stories should constantly have in their minds the way that they are unfairly disadvantaging other people’s children, but I think they should have that thought occasionally,’ quips Swift.

Thing is that he isn't simple saying "be mindful" of those differences; he goes way beyond that by proposing a solution. His solution would have been for you to not have a family at all, but to be raised by the state in some kind of state institution with all the other children for your whole life.
That way, all would be equal and know only what they want you to know.
I'm sure that would fix all the problems. Right?
