This was mostly excellent. In the name of unmarried parents everywhere, (and we are a large and growing number) who have raised excellent children (graduated HS With honors) there were some inaccurate statements of which the comments about unmarried mothers was one. 

Besides that, I would like to suggest that people do a search on orwells boot (I am number 1 or 5 or 6, dnusbaum or factotum666) I also highly recommend the books sex at dawn and sex and war which lay out how what the nature of man is. And to quote Feynman, nature can not be fooled.

Finally, I wish to say that the idea that the individual is supreme is false and is the reason that libertarianism has made little headway with the masses. In reality (nature) the individual and the group are tied together in a dynamic dance. The trick is to get the right balance. (see books above) The great mass of people (all books about the supremacy are written by successful individuals --- groups do not write books) know in their guts about this primal need to be part of a group. When the average person hears about the idea of the the supremacy of the individual they rightly think of, by analogy, a very successful strain of cells HeLa that are immortal. Very successful as opposed to the group of cells or the body. Like cancer.
