On its website, the Australian Broadcasting Company published an article headed “Is Having a Loving Family an Unfair Advantage?” Interviewed was a philosopher named Adam Swift (not to be confused with Adam Smith, or Jonathan Swift), who said,
“One way philosophers might think about solving the social-justice problem would be by simply abolishing the family. If the family is this source of unfairness in society, then it looks plausible to think that if we abolished the family there would be a more level playing field.”
While families cannot be abolished, yet that i (but we know they are working on that) Swift raises the issue of bedtime stories to show how other relationships need to level up as a key fact is that: Children whose parents read to them are better off than those who don’t and parent who use that to enhance their children, should feel a little worse for it..
Is it a joke? Dunno mate, but knowing how socialistic Australia is, I doubt it.
