The reminder of Christopher Lasch's "Hillary Clinton, Child Saver" could not be more compelling. As we approach Independence Day Friday, a recollection of this quote:
"We can talk all we want about freedom and opportunity, about life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, but what does all that mean to a mother or father who can't take a sick child to the doctor?"h/t: Ed Morrissey. Goldberg found that It Takes a Village �argues for interventions on behalf of children from literally the moment they are born.� Why do we have a classroom project (or so it appears) based on an assault on parental rights? If a parent walked by this while bringing her son or daughter to my office for advising for freshman orientation, what should I say?
The more I look at these pictures on the bulletin board, the more I think It Takes a Village is the theme.
