The Folly of Iron Individualism

The Orthosphere

As a conservative parent of sometimes refractory children, I read this old cartoon with mixed feelings.  Blaming the misdeeds of a “wayward child” entirely on society is dishonest and exculpatory in many cases.  Some parents are bad parents.  Some are consistently negligent, indulgent, cruel, or even debauching.  All parents sometimes fall short of the ideal.  But blaming the misdeeds of a “wayward child” entirely on the parents, as this cartoon does, is equally dishonest and exculpatory.
