Liberty: stupid sometimes

A court in California ruled yesterday that parents may home-school their children without any qualifications at all. While 30 other states disagree, in California you can raise your children to be just as ignorant and benighted as you are, and no one can argue.

Liberty is stupid sometimes, but I guess this is the kind of thing you have to accept in a free society. I'd like the other free parts to stay free, however -- like being able to walk down the street or cross a bridge without being surveilled, or being able to consume what I want without fearing that my preferences are being uploaded to some huge database.
