If you put a liberal brain in a bird, it’d fly backwards. Like so:
This hot-shot law prof seems to think “the state” invented parenthood. People can live without the state; but if no one gets born, that’s the ball game. So Mr. Kourtroom Klanger got it backwards. It took some time for people to invent the state, but there was never a time without parenthood.
But he’s what we offer up as our version of an intellectual.
That explains a lot about our recent history.
