Greta Thunberg (age 16) the Swedish climate activist, reminds me of Arthur Schopenhauer (age 16)-- as I have been reading AS's biographers and his letters and how he wanted to be a philosopher at that age and spoke his critical mind about human society--and the way "bipeds" operated in this world, which he was not impressed with--that was the early 19th century. AS has been…

MY CREED FOR PARENTS

I BELIEVE THAT PARENTS OUGHT TO TRY AND MAKE SACRIFICES JUDICIOUSLY IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION SO THAT ONE WON'T START DOING GEN EDITING IN THE NAME OF TRAINING. THE EDITING BEGINS WITH YOU. YOU CAN'T BEHAVE IRRESPONSIBLY AND EXPECT A RESPONSIBLE AND PEACEFUL HOME. PARENTS DON'T NEED TO BE JEALOUS OF THEIR CHILD BUT OUGHT TO GUIDE AND ENCOURAGE THE TALENT'S IN THEM. I BELIEVE THAT SEX IN MARRIAGE IS NOT ON THE JOB EMPLOYMENT. YOU WILL END UP HAVING A COMMUNITY-BASED FAMILY WITH LITTLE OR NO…
