Well I used to see kids skiving from my stepson's school most days when he was there, and I was quite happy with it. If they didn't want to be there, I thought it was preferable that they absent themselves rather than be present and disuptive for kids who were willing to learn.

This isn't to say that skiving is a good thing, but it can be preferable under specific circumstances. Perhaps other people make that judgement as well.


The weakness here is the assumption that the rich don't behave badly. They do, they just don't face much punishment for it, and they have more space to do it in.

It's like your some kind of commie, wanting to give the lower orders a say in how things are run. If they can't run their own puny lives, how can you expect them to run anything else. With attitudes like that, you'll never get on in the New Labourist State, except perhaps to summary social rehabilitation, once a social worker, policeman, or council clerk notices your asocial beliefs and actions.

Democracy rules the best

Robert Schwartz

It is a fundamentally different version of life than the statist model Britain has adopted. What you need is a stronger civil society and a devolved government. Then men are able to participate in their own lives.

Paul Davies

I take it you've read your Bertie Russell?
