Ah, the glories of Socialist Europe. A Dutch politician wants to penalize stay-at-home moms with college degrees because by staying at home they are “destroying capital.”
“A highly-educated woman who chooses to stay at home and not to work – that is destruction of capital,” she said in an interview last week. “If you receive the benefit of an expensive education at society’s expense, you should not be allowed to throw away that knowledge unpunished.”
Yeah, because raising children is a selfish exercise that provides no benefit to society. Of course, this is the problem with socialized education since the socialists are then allowed to argue that since the government paid for something, they have a right to demand something in return. Where does this end? “We own you forever! Hahahaha!!”
I wouldn’t want to live or work in Europe for any extended period for all the tea in China.
