    Default California should abolish parenthood, in the name of equity

    I thought I had seen it all but hoooooo boy was I wrong. This is a new level of nutbaggery that has expanded my horizons with regard to the absolutely dumbest of rhetoric I have ever read. Thought I would share the abiding wealth of stupidity so that you too can know the depths of ignorance that the People's Republic of California gets to read on a regular basis.

    If California is ever going to achieve true equity, the state must require parents to give away their children.

    Today’s Californians often hold up equity — the goal of a just society completely free from bias — as our greatest value. Gov. Gavin Newsom makes decisions through “an equity lens.” Institutions from dance ensembles to tech companies have publicly pledged themselves to equity.

    But their promises are no match for the power of parents.

    Fathers and mothers with greater wealth and education are more likely to transfer these advantages to their children, compounding privilege over generations. As a result, children of less advantaged parents face an uphill struggle, social mobility has stalled, and democracy has been corrupted. More Californians are abandoning the dream; a recent Public Policy Institute of California poll found declining belief in the notion that you can get ahead through hard work.

    My solution — making raising your own children illegal — is simple, and while we wait for the legislation to pass, we can act now: the rich and poor should trade kids, and homeowners might swap children with their homeless neighbors.
    Now, I recognize that some naysayers will dismiss such a policy as ghastly, even totalitarian. But my proposal is quite modest, a fusion of traditional philosophy and today’s most common political obsessions....

    Tell me this is a joke.
    If it is not, then that bastard is absolutely insane and should be treated accordingly, imho.

    I'm sure it's meant as satire. Unfortunately, it probably put ideas in half the empty heads of the fruits and nuts.

    I don't blame people for leaving CA. Just don't come here, please

    As long as they stay out of north central TX they can go wherever they want! LOL

    I thought it had to be satire at first as well, but then the loon that wrote it put in stuff like this:

    Perhaps such coercion sounds dystopian. But just imagine the solidarity that universal orphanhood would create. Wouldn’t children, raised in one system, find it easier to collaborate on global problems?
    Yikes!

    California is like a lot of places I've lived. Beautiful place full of stupid people. So who is to raise these orphans? Therein lies the rub: Every leftoid with a utopian, socialist dream always has all this equality flowing like milk and honey right up to the part where they are the elites that are "burdened" with raising the children. And each and every one of them for some reason cannot comprehend they notion that they are not one of the elites. Reality dictates otherwise. Countless drones need but one queen.

    There's no reality to any of these cuckoo birds but damned if they don't try to force their unrealistic BS on everyone, and even manage to convince some it will work.

    The idea isn't totally crazy for kids of divorced parents, especially if it makes child support manageable. In Cuba, where all children are considered the dominion of the Communist Party, child support is about $15 per month and even that isn't heavily enforced. Wives become a lot less bitchy when the man can easily just walk away. Go out to buy a pack of smokes and never come back.
