Actually, I don't want links.
I would have liked your take on it.
I'm a tad curious as to why you would want my take on it, nethertheless,
First I'm using a very old IPad with a keyboard that well, leaves a lot to be desired so I don't articulate as well as I would lets say on a
Ah, let's see, I'll begin with the Scotland legis first. I believe it is an extremely dangerous and horrendous idea and I say that as an adult who
was once a child or teen rather IN a state orphanage for a short time in my life. A religious one at that so I am Very well aware of the inadequacies
of the State as any type of parent as well as the psychological damage it does to a child to not have an intimate bond connection, the STATE simply
cannot supply that. So I'll speak some from my own experience, from that lens as well as from a political lens, as to the infringements on parental
rights, Women's rights (and it is a huge violation of womens human rights, falls into reproductive freedom and intimate space, specifically if you
take into any consideration the past policies of such measures and what they entailed towards women's rights, for example Romania) and last but not
least its a huge violation of CHILDREN'S RIGHTS.
Though ironically the clever engineers mask their efforts under the guise of Children's Protection, but I can assure you that the STATE is the WORST
ABUSER OF CHILDREN, not simply but what I've read, but what I personally myself have seen and lived through. And the recent sexual abuse of
juveniles in juvenile facilities report by the DOJ gives credence to this assertion.
This is not to say that accountability, especially when there is a lack of Real community not just the name sake, is lacking and when there are other
factors to be considered, eg poverty, cultural values that may BE abusive, drugs/alcohol use, etc., but just because there could be some improvements
on accountability in no way gives reason for the STATE to step in, encroach and then play daddy dickTator.
First, as a social vehicle to bring about positive citizenship, OK such as the logic of the engineers parade this draconian legis under, it would do
the exact Opposite in that it would undermine any authority, guidance and Leadership the parents/parent has, therefore immediately teaching the Child
not to have any respect whatsoever for authority that CARES about them or TRUST, and that is all it would accomplish, is divisive tension within the
home and a build up of total disrespect for the parents or any OTHER family member who steps in, out of love and concern, to intervene on the child's
behalf, therefore Rendering that Child/ren Emotional ORPHANS.
And Then you get into some real problems with attachment issues, following Peers because as social animals we crave or cleave rather to other humans,
Especially in our most for formeble years. And that IS the agenda, render the children emotional detached orphans that will fill that void with Other
replacements, be it Peers OR
Be it the Parent STATE. But then the Problem with that you see, is that the State has not the Personal Intimate investment/bond with the child like a
Parent, in most cases, would. And Don't think for a minute a Child does not Know this, they do. So what they'll wind up with, is a generation of
emotionally confused and orphaned, resentful children who sure, they may Obey the State as parent but they'll only do so as a means of survival,
every chance they get they'll be looking for ones to Attach to, usually gangs, cults and yes, political extremists. And proof of this,
A huge percentage of politicized groups, the members are in fact, either have been abused children or orphaned children...I'm speaking of Very
extremist political Groups, so, just from That point alone, when the State forces itself as a Parent and rips children from true love and care, they
are setting up not a civilized society, hardly, but the beginning of a society where, these children may be compliant one day, but the resentment will
smolder, and one day, those children will become the very enemy....the State was trying to avoid. That's just my take on it, JUST from that part
alone, there is Tons more wrong with but, this is the most relevant from my own experience and the advocacy that I do.
