Shadow Parents The Future

Okay. So I'm good at this prognosticate game.

For years I demanded (sarcastically) the government just assign each family a bureaucrat to run our affairs. That way the fucking idiots could tell us if we're buying the right food, tidying up the house, and taking care of our kids "right."

Yeah, well. It's not so funny anymore.

"Imagine the very worst home a child could grow up in: No food in the fridge, parents strung out on drugs, the children covered with scabs and beaten regularly. You would want someone to step in and save the kids.

And then there's Scotland.

Scotland wants to treat all families as potentially abusive and appoint a "named person" (that is, a guardian) as soon as the child is born and up through age 18 to oversee the parenting. This "shadow parent" would be empowered by the government under the Children and Young People (Scotland) Act, which will take effect in 2016.

And when some dipshit, clutch pearling left-wing socialist nanny-state, busbody asshole proposes this here I will hold each and every one of you accountable for when (ok, if) it happens. 

When I say 'you' I mean every single one of you thoughtless jerkoffs who always thought it a good idea the government involve itself in our affairs from cigarettes to sugary drinks as if it's actually sound, effective policy.

All you've done is consent to them controlling your life.
