"If you care about your children you'll get the federal government out of the business of educating our kids" - Ron Paul
 
I like Ron Paul's idea of tax credits for parents who are home schooling their children. Presently we punish parents who homeschool their children and reward the mediocrity of the public education system with lavish amounts of taxpayer dollars. It's a rigged system and we need to fix it.

Happiness. Just re-read something I'd written years ago. It's not bad. Still compelling. I didn't have the capacity to finish it then, but I do now. I hope I can. #amwriting

Just thinking about how different groups of people are sometimes. The French watching executions for amusement during the French Revolution. The Japanese reading death reports like sports scores in WWII and fostering a culture enamored by violence and hate. I'm sure every culture can lay claim to a violent past.

So how in the world do we have such a peaceful civilization now? I’m sure it’s in all our natures to be amused by death and destruction like that, so why don’t we live that way? What compels us to improve? To be better, as a society, as a whole?

Why would men create a justice system? Why not just survival of the fittest, the strongest? Because there are so many more weak people than strong, that the majority overwhelmed the strongest? Seems unlikely. Because of the good in men, too? How could you possibly cultivate the good in the midst of horror and evil, though?
