I suppose this shows just how detached lawmakers are from the real world. And why shouldn't they be? They do not deal with real life, they just talk
about it and use the circumstances of others as political leverage. That's just my opinion of course. In truth, it should be illegal for anyone to
read or watch Fox news, lol. Maybe they were thinking that they were somehow shielding these kids from some of the meaner stories found in all
publications of this nature, but that is just ridiculous considering where we are today.
It seems that capitalism and US government in general would like for people to be shielded from the truth. The big businesses who manipulate politics
want people pointing the finger at someone else when the people actually realize something is not right, but they would rather that people did not
find out in the first place. Maybe they think that anyone that young who would want to be informed on the issues is someone who will grow up to think
for themselves, and that cannot be tolerated. Just like the education system in the US, kids must be indoctrinated under specific guidelines, and must
not be taught other things, despite those things being the truth. Private schools are better than public schools, but private schools are
If those rich parents who all sent their kids to private school had to send them to public school, I can GUARANTEE you that the public education
system would change overnight. That just goes to show you how capitalism and selective democracy operates. I say selective democracy because only some
of the current US ideals and laws are focused on democracy. Most aren't, and this is another thing that certain institutions wish they could keep the
people from realizing.
