Tulane Prof Melissa Harris Perry explains what trumps your Individual Rights.

LINK
quote:

“This isn’t about me wanting to take your kids, and this isn’t even about whether children are property. This is about whether we as a society, expressing our collective will through our public institutions, including our government, have a right to impinge on individual freedoms in order to advance a common good. And that is exactly the fight that we have been having for a couple hundred years.”


Forward !

That is scary. When I was younger I was a liberal. As I got older, had kids, and actually lived life I find myself becoming more conservative. Sir Winston Churchill was indeed correct!

I bet she would have fit right in with slave owners trying to rationalize the institution of slavery.

Or maybe with Adolf Hitler and the rest of his gang.

Sure I'm being outrageous to prove a point, but that is how statists are, the good of the whole depends on govt. being the big stick and individuals really have little tosay about anything.

Sure the slave owners and Nazis are on one extreme, but tha tis the general direction this country is headed.

People that think like her would be the chief reason to home school my children.

This is ignorance stacked on top of ignorance 1) the word is "infringe" not "impinge"
2) in using the word "infringe" you say "we will infringe your rights" not "we will infringe ON your rights"


Well this fella is bright...

More ignorance to stack?

I reckon slave holders had it right, housing, feeding and providing work to blacks way back when.

I bet She puts her money where her mouth is. She selflessly educates the poor inner city youth of NOLA that attend Tulane for a paltry 250k a year. And I'm sure she donates her MSNBC gig proceeds and her speech honorariums to The Boys Club.

What these extremist do not realize, that people will ALWAYS disagree on what the "common good" is, which is why we should ALL have individual freedom to pursue our personal idea of what is good.

What scares me most is that she is a typical Liberal.

Well, I think she diagnosed the problem correctly, that basically, crappy parenting causes problems for everyone around. But the solutions isn't to absolved parents of their reponaibilities, it's to make sure people don't become crappy parents.

I haven't a clue how to go about doing that though.

In her case, she is probalby correct. If the state had intervened and taken here away from her butt hurt, afro-centric, racist dad, society would have been better off.

It's a typical liberal policy. Don't encourage responsibility in citizens, instead take away fragments of their freedom and convince them it's for a greater good, in this case, a child's education.

To be honest, the premise of her argument (it takes a village) isn't that bad either. I look out for my neighbors' kids and they look out for mine. Nothing wrong with that.

It just really starts to break down when your village population is 300 million+ and you try to use the state as a proxy.

On my phone and can't pull get video for some reason. Anyway, what's the subject matter?

BTW. you guys do realize that, to one degree or another, you all support some sort of government action that infringes upon someone's "rights", no?
