ever notice how, when there's a 16-car pile-up on the freeway, the news reports come in: "twelve people died in the wreck, including two children."

they only say that because of our heartstrings, right?

(this is my 900th post)

It's very important to protect the children, we don't want them going around experiencing things.

the children (or the retards) are us, our own selves in our more vulnerable (and cuddly) aspects.

Protect them from what? How far do you take it before running into paranoia and restricting children from living free to explore and discover their world?

Is paranoia a harmless place to be? Some parent might keep guns in the house to protect their children from intruders and then a kid accidental gets shot playing with the gun.

Is it harmful to the potential development to restrict children from leaving their homes to keep them safe? Some parents get so germ paranoid that they wash away healthy bacteria and their kids end up getting sick more often.

Where is the line drawn between freedom and restriction? 

If we are all to live a relatively full filling life, we are all going to be taking risks and engaging in risky behavior for the potential gain of greater experiential fulfillment.

What's next? Planetary lock down of all beliefs so no one gets hurt?

Breathing is dangerous. When oxygen is burned for fuel in the body, it emits free radicals that can cause harm. We believe in doing it anyway.

How far are you going to take this protecting people from harmful beliefs swami, until no one is living a life or breathing anymore? How tightly can you close people in on themselves in the name of safety before they are crushed to death?

I believe in keeping clean, but showers and bath tubs are dangerous places, people get hurt in them. Maybe I should switch to sponge baths.  :crazy:

Our children represent the future of human kind. Its a normal attitude to want to preserve them, its even instinctive. They represent what he have accomplished until now and what we are yet to accomplish.

So at what age does someone not become a child, and gets off the "protection" list?

When somebody says "we're doing it for the children" I usually take it with a grain of salt. Hardly is it ever just "for the children"

Yes, let's protect them from all the horrible sex, violence, cursing, evolutionism, secularism, and other such influences which might expose them to ideas other than what they are taught.

Bingo! Millions of herb users in jail on this rationale.

Well, keeping them ALL safe and preserved is not even something everyone agrees on or we wouldn't be dropping bombs on Iraqi children  right now. Or are Americans risking the lives of those children to preserve their own? :crazy:

See how freaking far people will go to keep their children safe? They will kill other peoples children.

Yeah, unfortunately Swami is hella right. Herb is illegal to "protect our youth from dangerous narcotics" or some other heinous sentence, but our children are only being fucked over when they are caught, not when they smoke.

So the only thing ruining the children are the anti-pot laws. Every time you arrest some kid cause he was smoking, you ruined his life and you protected no one.
