The point:

is that Rothbard is being ridiculed over a principal that exits in the American legal system which is that no one has a right to force someone to do a positive action and Rothbard is being ridiculed for extending the logic of that principle to children when there is an obvious hypocrisy for criticizing Rothbard over children starvation when unborn killing is allowed.

Hell, legal commentators in the Trayvon Martin case pointed out police dispatchers do not order people not to follow. It might sound cute to ridicule Rothbard for making a case to apply a principle but it is pretty absurd to criticize the principal when not only do the We's use it with regards to abortion but for a plethora of absurdities with regards to the family.

There was a todo about the citizenship of Obama because only one parent was a citizen. I find the comment you made about common law interesting because there was a radical distinction between England and France on whom the protections of the crown fell upon and whether it derived from where one was born or the allegiance of one's parents. One of the points over Obama's citizenship was that under the common law system the citizenship status of children derived from a condition of the father. This was confirmed following the Revolutionary War and the prohibition in the constitution on the office of president to prevent foreign occupation of that office with the natural born clause.

No state constitution delegates any power to the state to regulate the family. This is because of some notion of common law and that a man rules the family. You try to defend the poor ethic's of We citing it derives from common law but I doubt you would argue women shouldn't vote or have any rights or a common law system which recognized the rights of men as superior to that of women. I doubt you could argue a modern legal system where women's rights are superior to men derives from a common law system where men's rights were superior to women.
