Re: “A Tax on Reading

Effects entirely in line with the current administration’s intentional degradation of Environment: nature, informational, and human rights. All are being assailed by the World’s Greatest Businessman.

Re: “Back Off, Mama Bear

What a nice, well-done, compact article about a very important topic!
Although all the reliable data shows that we live in the safest times in recorded history, in terms of crime rates, disasters, etc. ... the media have helped create the opposite impression. Buying into these scariness campaigns, the natural parental reflex is to go full helicopter. (There is also the competition for status & success, as seen with those who could afford to tilt the scales for their childrens college admissions.) I dont know why it is not more obvious that all the protectionism and doings-for only work to cripple a childs growth; like foot binding of the developing psyche.
Good job shining a light on one of our social insanities: the failure to notice how we can paradoxically hurt our children by trying to protect them.
