When I walk round the shops and hear parents shouting at their pre-teens, calling them "little shits", saying things like "fucking get here" etc etc - I wonder what sort of example they are setting to the next generation.
You think cursing is bad parenting? Try abusing or even worse...neglecting.
Do you doubt for a second that the government can do a better job of parenting than most of the parents?
Than most parents? YES! Most parents are still well capable of educating their children on a personal level. Children with a problematic education have worse problems than their parents handing them Mortal Combat. But rather then spending time on the real problem, the government is yet again fighting symptoms with no regard for the ones who do no harm.
Lo! Men have become the tool of their tools. -- Henry David Thoreau
