The return of Gabo! Children can be easily manipulated, so I'd be wary when saying 'oh, they should have freedom'. Freedom to do what (since children have to, in some cases 'protect themselves')? Freedom to have sex with older men? How far does your freedom go? You know, a great many alter boys have consented to 'stay after church' with their Priests, but this was only because the Priests manipulated the children. Children should be protected by the state (which apparently runs 'jail schools'...I'd say they run completely capitalist-biased schools, but jail schools?)Gabo said:If the child CONSENTS TO IT (this is a word meaning they WANT to do it), I see no problem.
If people feel strongly against adult-child relations, which MANY do, then they can campaign against it to teach children and parents the negative effects of it.
You seem to share the opinion of most others: you work to get your own freedoms but you don't allow anyone else to have the freedoms they desire.
I'm not saying children aren't fragile and don't need to be protected.
What I'm saying is that it's their parents' responsibility to protect the child. And, if the parents don't protect the child, it's up to the child themself.
If the child or parents are unhappy with the conditions, the child can always be given up for adoption to a more caring guardian.
What I'm fighting is the state getting sovereign reign over the child's development (which it basically has already with our horrible government jailschools). The child is to be raised by it's own parents. You and I deserve no say in how the child is raised, nor do the fat cats in Washington.
The most important role in life to me is preserving and restoring the freedom once allotted to us by the Constitution. I'll shut up and be happy when we once again have that freedom.
But until then, I advocate the return of freedom to anyone and everyone in any and all ways possible.
Only with freedom can we live in a place where everyone can be responsible for themselves.
