Anyone who hopes to be a free individual is necessarily anti-social. This used to be tolerated, if not embraced. Alas, as the hive mind expands, tolerance shrinks.

To lose your children because you don’t fit a social template is at once a tragedy, and, at the same time, an indictment of a society that demands conformity at any price. What greater price than losing your children?

And if such a price can be demanded and enforced, where does it end? The State wants it all. Sadly, most people are happy to give up liberty to escape responsibility, to be taken care of. I don’t see that changing.
