Random Quote #79 topic: atheism, Wayne Aiken's atheism cookie file

"School vouchers as proposed by Reagan and Bush do not represent free market
competition. The reason is fairly simple. The source of the money is not
the consumers. The vouchers are paid for by tax dollars. School vouchers
are an attempt to breach the separation of church and state by allowing
individuals who are not constrained by the prohibition against Congress
passing laws respecting religion to spend tax dollars for the benefit of
the religion of their choice.

I have no objection to parents sending their children to the school of
their choice. The problem with public funding of schools is that it is an
inherently collectivist system. The restraints that have been placed on
what public schools must teach and what they are prohibited from teaching
protect us to a limited extend from the full magnitude of the damage that
they have the potential to do if used as a propaganda tool.

I have never granted that anyone else rightfully has the freedom to choose
how my money will be spent. The only difference between that and slavery is
that the masters do not have the authority to beat, sell, or kill me if I
choose not to work. Send your children to schools that brainwash them any
way that you wish. But do not insist on paying for it with money taken
from me by taxation."
