Spare the work and spoil the child. Spoil the children and they never grow up. From Paul Rosenberg at freemansperspective.com:
Children are ignorant, but not stupid; small, but not insignificant. And while the role they are able to play in the world is necessarily limited, it need not and should not be zero.
Children need to work and to contribute to their families; not so much for the sake of the family, but for their personal development. Children need to learn responsibility at a very early age; they must know that they can contribute, and since their natural tendency is to evade work in favor of play, they must be made to work.
The level of their work should be matched to their abilities, of course, but the phrase, “You’re part of this family and you have to work too,” is something they should hear at a young age. Work must become part of family life for them. More than that, it probably should not involve monetary payment: this is about self-responsibility and being a contributing member of the family. Money can come later, as their work expands. Family is more important than money, and should stand above money.

Vaccines of all flavors are not so good for children. From Steve Kirsch at stevekirsch.substack.com:
This one graphic shows everything you need to know. This is one of the reasons why nobody wants to talk to me.
The graphic is from a paper which was published in April 24, 2017: Pilot comparative study on the health of vaccinated and unvaccinated 6- to 12- year old U.S. children
The point of this article is that the COVID vaccines are not the first unsafe vaccine. We’ve been doing this for years. The COVID vaccines are simply the latest manifestation of a problem which has been going on for over 20 years.
Why don’t the adults pick on someone their own size? Because they’re classic bullies, and someone their own size would fight back. This is shameful. From Paul Joseph Watson at summit.news:
Coffee shops giving free drinks to unvaxxed also targeted by media hate campaign.
Schoolchildren in Germany are being subjected to ritual humiliation by being forced to divulge their vaccination status in front of their class on a daily basis, with unjabbed kids being questioned as to why they haven’t received it.
The shocking development, which has been covered by German media outlets, was explained by journalist Alex Story.
“It’s essentially about the ritual humiliation of children who are asked to go to the front of the class and state their vaccination status daily,” Story told GB News.
This is for those with a dark and cynical sense of humor. From Mike “Mish” Shedlock at mishtalk.com:
The Greens need to step up to the plate with some truly sustainable proposals. I have a couple of ideas.
Ironies of Build Back Better
President Biden wants free college education, free preschool for kids, and increased child tax credits.
All of these proposals subsidize the single worst thing we can do for the environment: have kids.
Kids eat, need medical services, eventually become teenagers and drive cars. And as shocking as this might seem, kids grow up and travel, eventually by airplane.
Poor Nations Say They Need Trillions From Rich Ones
Yesterday, I commented Hello President Biden, Poor Nations Say They Need Trillions From Rich Ones
It’s one thing for developed countries like the US to demand a cleaner future, but it’s another thing to attempt to force G7 goals on the rest of the world.
About Those Climate Change Goals
John Kerry was speechless when he learned Poor Nations Need Trillions From Rich Ones to meet climate change goals.
We’re inflicting the manifest risks of Covid vaccinations on a group who has almost no chance of getting Covid—children. That’s unforgivable. From Geert Vanden Bossche at geertvandenbossche.org:
One wonders how it is possible that while it has now been reported that vaccinated shed and transmit as much virus as unvaccinated people (1), the vaccinated are still protected against severe disease whereas the unvaccinated are said to be unprotected. So, how can one explain that viral shedding and transmission and hence, viral replication no longer seem to be impacted by the vaccine whereas the opposite still applies to the occurrence of (severe) disease?
Based on their study results, the authors from the above-mentioned report (1) conclude that there is no significant difference in viral load between groups of vaccinated and unvaccinated, asymptomatic and symptomatic people who became infected with SARS-CoV-2 Delta variant. So, again: Considering that vaccinees shed and transmit as much virus as unvaccinated people, how could one even postulate that unvaccinated people are susceptible to severe disease whereas vaccinees are still largely protected from severe disease?
Frankly speaking, this doesn’t make any sense at all. So there must be a ‘small’ detail the current ‘narrative’ overlooked.
Wait a minute … Does the above-mentioned comparison of viral load between the vaccinated and the unvaccinated include people who contracted SEVERE disease? It didn’t! So, could it be that the unvaccinated are only susceptible to severe disease when their first (i.e., innate) line of immune defense is weakened because of a lowered functional capacity of their innate, poly-reactive antibodies (Abs)? Hmmm, this could definitely explain why elderly people and those who’re immune suppressed or have underlying diseases are susceptible to severe Covid-19 disease. But what about our healthy youngsters and children as these age groups are thought to have excellent innate, pre-existing immune effector cells (2) but are now also increasingly contracting severe Covid-19 disease. Could this be due to spike(S)-specific Abs that young and healthy children may harbor for up to 8 weeks after they contracted asymptomatic infection and that outcompete their innate protective Abs (3)? If this is true, this would imply that only a small part of young and unvaccinated people are susceptible to severe disease (i.e., those who get quite rapidly re-exposed to Sars-CoV-2 after previous infection) but that the vast majority of them are still protected from severe disease, regardless of which Sars-CoV-2 lineage is predominant in the circulating viral population. This seems, indeed, to be the case! Or do some of our ‘experts’ believe that the unvaccinated children and youngsters who don’t get Covid-19 disease have simply not been exposed to the virus at all? But how could that happen given the fact that in most countries the pandemic started over 1.5 years ago and that we’re now dealing with highly infectious variants and that infection prevention measures have largely been relaxed?
War is . . . day care. From Caitlin Johnstone at caitlinjohnstone.com:
Mainstream news and social media cannot get enough photos of imperial invaders posing for photographs with small children in Afghanistan.
Mass media narrative managers and military agencies alike have been spamming these images everywhere, as quickly and enthusiastically as possible.
That’s right. Invade a nation, kill hundreds of thousands of its inhabitants, stay for decades, accomplish nothing besides making war profiteers wealthy, drop everything and leave, then have your armed goon squad take PR photos with local infants so everyone thinks your military is awesome.
Governments are doing everything they can to compel people to get Covid vaccines, but through businesses and the schools so as not to have their fingerprints on it and to avoid legal challenges. From Megan Redshaw at childrenshealthdefense.org:
It’s not just businesses, the federal government and the military — the push is also on to mandate COVID vaccines for school children, despite evidence showing the benefits don’t outweigh the risks.
National Institutes of Health Director Dr. Francis Collins said Sunday he believes the U.S. should adopt more COVID vaccine mandates. Collins praised businesses for requiring the shots.
“I am glad to see the president insisting that we go forward requiring vaccinations or, if people are unwilling to do that, then regular testing at least once or twice a week, which will be very inconvenient,” Collins told ABC “This Week” anchor George Stephanopoulos.
When asked if it was time for more compulsory COVID vaccine policies, Collins said, “Yeah, I think we ought to use every public health tool we can when people are dying. Death rates are starting up again.”
“That was about as close to a yes as you could get,” Stephanopoulos said. “You clearly believe vaccine mandates could make a difference.”
Growing up hating your race and culture is not a path to achievement or happiness. From Brett Sinclair at lewrockwell.com:
I don’t want to bring my children into a world where they are supposed to loathe themselves because of the colour of their skin, be forced to endure drag queen story hours at school and be taught distorted, woke history lessons.
The Western world as it is today (what we might call the American empire) has undergone drastic cultural changes in recent years, changes which appear to be escalating in speed and drama.
As someone who has lived in two different Western countries (Canada and Ireland) for equal lengths of time, I have observed that this transformation is occurring universally, the only variable being the rate of change (Canada, I can affirm, is further along than Ireland).
I am now in middle age with four young children, and I sincerely wish I could say that I felt at ease with these changes and that I was not concerned about their direction and impact upon the younger generation. But I cannot.
I am increasingly nervous about raising my children in this Western culture which seems to despise all boundaries and I would guess that I am among millions who feel similarly – millions who are somehow without any say in its direction.
