Also, children with all their limbs and eyes have an unfair advantage over those that don't, so perhaps maiming should also be on the table in our race to the bottom.

Harrison Bergeron as philosophy rather than satire.
Plato famously wanted to abolish the family and put children into care of the state. Some still think the traditional family has a lot to answer for, but some plausible arguments remain in favour of it. Joe Gelonesi meets a philosopher with a rescue plan very much in tune with the times.

The Plaid Zebra originally shared to Awesome places:
 
Meet the 2.7 square mile country where freedom reigns. So far, they've received over 300,000 citizenship applications.
Cradled in a minuscule 7 square kilometre area between Serbia and Croatia, on the western bank of the river Danube, is the newly (disputable) country of Liberland.

Well if they're going to play the autonomist game with flags and anthems then they don't stand a snowball's chance in hell of succeeding. Eventually Croatia and Serbia will have a treaty and that will be that.

ON the other hand if they drop the Mises institute propaganda and actually try to work outside the system, they would never get this level of recognition and actually get something done.

They need a cloak, not these little fashion capes.

Make it ren faire or goth look and it might actually be useful.

OMG... Do you read to your kid(s) before bed? Better check their privilege. You're giving them an unfair advantage.

Privchecking has become a parody of itself.
THE ABC has questioned whether parents should read to their children before bedtime, claiming it could give your kids an “unfair advantage” over less fortunate children.

Ridiculous! Why should I dumb down my child because another parent decides that their children aren't worth their time to care for them?!?

At first glance that may seem like a criminal’s distant fantasy, but in Oslo, Bastøy prison—which sits on an island 80 kilometres from Norway—offers a new perspective on how to treat criminals.

We're still unsure what is our favorite: garbage trucks, tractors, diggers or trains
