More Ethical Absurdity of WeSubmitted by His American Majesty on Tue, 07/16/2013 - 16:46
Bill3 makes a big todo about Rothbard's observations that rights are a negative concept demarcating the areas of a person’s action that no man may properly interfere with and no man can therefore have a ‘right’ to compel someone to do a positive act. Bill objects to an extension of this logic to children summed up in this quote:
"should a parent have the right to allow a deformed baby to die (e.g. by not feeding it)? The answer is of course yes, following a fortiori from the larger right to allow any baby, whether deformed or not, to die."
However, let's take a look at what Bill3's precious and sacred We have already determined they will coerce submission to:
We have determined it is unreasonable for men and women to have equal autonomy in reproduction.
We have determined that only women may choose parenthood.
We have determined that a woman may choose parenthood before or after birth by 1) abortion, 2) adoption, or 3) dropping it off at a location approved under baby safe haven law.
We have determined that if a man has unprotected sex without a condom he "put it in" and takes on some kind of obligation irregardless of any conception contract whereas if a woman has unprotected sex without a diaphragm she gets to establish and enforce the terms of her own conception contract and make it binding upon a man without his consent.
We have determined that there ought to be a safety net for children which everyone pays into in the form of federally collected Title IV monies, doled out to states, which are doled out to counties but even if you pay into this system a county will come ask you to pay more in the form of child support.
We have determined that in addition to Title IV programs it is just to coerce non-parents to pay for other peoples kids public education and a plethora of other public programs for children.
We have determined in international treaties that slavery is defined as having control over ones property but forced fatherhood is not slavery.
We have determined constitutional prohibitions and a Civil War to end indentured servitude does not apply to forced fatherhood.
We have determined personal jurisdiction is not a requirement for an administrative, non-judicial family court to sanction the standing of ones name.
We have determined that children have no legal obligation to parents for coerced elderly support because parents do not own their child's labor because it benefits society not parents the same way that when Bill Gates invented Windows it benefited society.
We have determined that while parents have no right to a child's labor parents have a responsibility to pay for property their children damage.
I could easily go on making several more points but there is an obvious absurdity when Bill3 ridicules Rothbard when his precious and sacred We have already determined women can kill unborn children because of the same exact principle elaborated on by Rothbard in that no one has a right to force a woman to do a positive action such as give birth because it is the woman's body.
