    So you do want overt control. Why pretend otherwise?

    and just how is NOT rewarding stupid behavior "punishment"?
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.

    The kind of "overt" control I want is to allow these stupid people to suffer the consequences of their stupid actions.

    You're a fascist man...
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    And how is allowing children to suffer punishing the "stupid" behavior of thier parents? Also how do you account for accidents? You know...condoms breaking, contraceptives failing. Or how about women that are raped? Should a child born via a raped woman be allowed to suffer just because his mother is poor and his father raped his mother?

    Reward:

    Make a gift of something to (someone) in recognition of their services, efforts, or achievements.
    I'm coming to see that no matter what law we regulate, be it the stand your ground act, there is never an objective morally right answer to any morale question; in fact, since there are multiple objectively right answers to every moral question that leaves us with a lot of grey area and a lot of black area (not in the racial since).

    BTW, stupidity is not a choice. Being undereducated (the word you were looking for) is SOMETIMES AND VERY RARELY a choice.

    OMFG...think of the children....

    yeah, let's just keep rewarding stupidity so they can keep on breeding more and more kids for us to support.
