Everyone wants children to shut up, don't go anywhere, not leave the house, not get fat, don't play anywhere, don't be unsupervised, develop independence, never question, learn critical thinking, etc.
You cannot imagine how ridiculous you all are. You want parents to control their children, but you cannot even control YOURSELVES.
...It is a fact that since Dr. Spock put out his wonderful work of science fiction that society has eroded, and crime has gone up. I don't think it's a coincidence.
"For 10 years, William Schmidt, a statistics professor at Michigan State University, has looked at how U.S. students stack up against students in other countries in math and science. "In fourth-grade, we start out pretty well, near the top of the distribution among countries; by eighth-grade, we're around average, and
by 12th-grade, we're at the bottom of the heap, outperforming only two countries, Cyprus and South Africa."
... Surveys of corporations consistently find that businesses are focused outside • the U.S. to recruit necessary talent. In a 2002 survey, 16 global corporations complained that American schools did not produce students with global skills. United States companies agreed. The survey found that 30 percent of large U.S. companies “believed they had failed to exploit fully their international business opportunities due to insufficient personnel with international skills.” One respondent to the survey even noted, “If I wanted to recruit people who are both technically skilled and culturally aware, I wouldn’t even waste time looking for them on U.S. college campuses.”

There are just some people who have to pick fights because they got picked on as a kid. They have no friends and hide behind computers so they can fell all superior to everyone else while secretly nursing their insecurities. No matter how well you respond, and point to the obvious that any rational adult would grasp they will bash. Just reinforces the previous statement even more.
