Comment: Yes...but

(See in situ)


I'm not saying that America's TV is not controlled or that it is reasonable to let the state educate our children. Of course not. What I am saying is that making hyperbolic and ridiculous comparisons does not help our cause. Example: It's bad that public education exists in the US. But homeschooling is legal in some form in all 50 states. Homeschooling is illegal (in any form) in China (and Germany for that matter). Yes, we are moving in the direction of totalitarianism and all the rest, but we are not the "worst place in the world" in virtually any category.

I'm saying to become realistic and sharpen your rhetoric; you will be more effective, and we need to be more effective.
