Quote from a tweet in an email by Tom Woods:
Private schools should be banned. The rich shouldn’t be able to buy their kids a better education. The fact that this *is* a controversial opinion says a lot about our society, to be honest.
The fact that someone can make such a statement says so much more about a society. Bunch of begrudging howler monkeys, the lot of em.
Let’s dissect the statement:
Nobody should be able to get their kids a good education. Just because some people are smart enough to help them make enough money to be able to afford to send their offspring to a school where they will also be made smart enough to become rich enough to, like their parents, send their kids to a good school, etc.
If the public schools would have been better, the private schools would disappear one by one, because there would be no point in sending your kids there.
The rich pay for public schools (via theft), they just don’t send their kids there, so financially, they leave room (foot the tuition) for kids that do go to public school. Instead of being mean to them, activists should thank the rich for that.
So really, what’s actually being argued there, is for the abolition of public schools, because they keep poor people poor, and private schools keep rich families rich. The better solution would certainly be to make the the poor richer by making a better investment in their future, instead of herding the children of all families (rich and poor alike) into public schools, so the poor will stay poor. That is the equality that socialists like Bernie Sanders strive to achieve: everybody should be poor. The only rich should be, well, politicians like Bernie Sanders, who deserve to be rich because they undertake the hard task of micro-managing the country.
Then there the fact that if people wantto send their children to a private school, or not yo sny school at all (because in the public school in their area, the kids only learn to be gang members), that’s their choice, and it shoukd be respected (and paid for by the parents)
