Reasons not to raise kids in the US

At some point creating a safe environment for kids just becomes a bad joke that could be as well fetured in a Monty Python show. According to a story in theĀ  Washington Post, children in the age of 4 or 6 years may already commit sexual harassments.

Well, how crazy can you be? Children that cause problems probably need guidance instead of punishment (especially if punishment means just to file a record that will stick for a whole live).

At some point, I just have the urgent feeling of slapping both the British and U.S. government for their strange views. Arrgh. Is it a genetic error in those people that they think that laws can change the human nature? Not laws change people, education does! And education does surely not mean to put people into jail, using a “three-strikes” strategy; it means fixing the cause of the problems. But how do you teach people to fix the causes, if the attention span of the common voter has been trained to be no longer than the 5 minutes FOX news?

Oh, Lord, please summon a strong Chinese government to take over the struggeling US, so that they can live in a society that honors the United Nations Human Rights Charta and does not spy on its own people.
