an evasion of parental responsibility
People remain children until they become parents.
When two people have a child they are no longer individuals, they become a
family. The new parents now have the highest level of responsibility that they
will ever have. Raising a child goes way beyond simple subsistence; they must
create an environment of compassion and love. Young children learn best by
example because they are curious and want to participate in everything they
see. Parents must be loving and kind without coercion or violence (that
includes spanking!) in order for the child to learn how to live peacefully and
When parents are forced to hand over their
children to public schools then they lose the ability to provide a healthy
environment for their child. Government employees, policies, and peers are now
the largest influences on that child’s life. Eight hours a day, 180 days a year
for 13+ years in the hands of government is devastating to a child. Children are
raised by their peers and the parents lose control of their most important duty
in life, parenthood; this is the root of our social collapse and
schools are morally hypocritical
If a child in a public school were to punch
another child in the face and snatch his lunch money then the teacher would
consider that wrong and proceed to punish the child. However, this is exactly
how the teacher is paid! Taxes are forcibly extracted from people with the
threat of violence in order to pay for the public school system. A parent
cannot teach a child that violence and coercion is wrong, and then support
violence and coercion in their everyday lives. Violence is the foundation of
the public school system. It does not matter if a person is 5 years old or 50, violence
and coercion is wrong!
schools restrict freedom
School is a prison!
This is not a voluntary situation, children are
forced to attend school and parents are threatened with violence if their
children do not attend school. Most children would admit that they would rather
do something else besides go to school; but they have no choice. Their freedom
is restricted for 8 hours a day (plus time for homework), 180 days a year for
13+ years; such a large portion of their lives devoted to following orders.

Ultimately, the best way for power generation would be localized, clean and renewable energy sources that can meet the needs of the people. Personal power generation will be the best, safest and most reliable way to generate electricity. Transmitting electricity great distances is very inefficient, transmission losses can average up to 10%.
We already have a natural nuclear power plant… it's called the Sun. The Sun bathes the earth with energy all day every day. Plants and animals have no problem harnessing its power to meet their needs, I am sure we can too.
Personal solar panels are becoming more affordable and many people are now completely self sufficient without sacrificing their demand for electricity. The combination of efficient use and local generation of electricity may be the ultimate solution.

I think that marriage, like any relationship should be detached yet supportive.
Consider the analogy of a bridge with two pillars that have the ability to stand strong independently, but where they meet in the middle there is absolutely no pressure on each other, yet a tremendous amount of support is gained from the union.
see picture and think about it…

Our lifetimes are fleeting, like magnificent ocean waves toward the shoreline. Some waves are well defined like a powerful force, others barely swell. Some waves crash harder than others, some lift others, and some waves suppress others. Nevertheless, all waves reach the shoreline only to be consumed back into the ocean. Life is like ocean waves, fleeting yet part of a whole.
Time is the most valuable resource we have; thinking is a valuable activity and is worth your time. Take time to think (meditate) several times a day because decisions demand thought to be made correctly. Making the wrong decisions wastes your time more than anything else.
