I would probably fit into some of the stereotypes for a right winger: totally into low taxes and smaller government. I start to go off track though, because for me, that includes dismantling the…Continue
"Monogomy is only one way to provide resources, love, and support. Some would argue that it hasn't actually been all that successful on these criteria and that there are other more effective means. For an example (sadly difficult to…"
"Family tax breaks and baby subsidisation are but political tools to insure a proper source of labour for the ever growing corporate manufacturing plant this world has become.

"It will be interesting to see just how far from the tree the apples fall. I'm guessing that out of piles of kids grown in a fundamentalist home like that, a significant number rebel. I wonder what kind of mental gymnastics these people will…"
"oops -- I somehow posted this at the very end, rather than the top.
People keep saying they don't want to have kids because they are "too selfish". I think this bears a little exploration, because it is arguable that the ones who do…"

"I have two long term relationships (one a marriage) end because I didn't want to have children. I have learned to simply not even start a serious relationship with someone who wants to have children. That said, there are many flavors of…"
