Continuing on the education theme

Eric Scheie has some thoughts on education and altruism.

Actually, it is worse than that; they want to send a message that those who involve themselves in their children's education are criminals who should be imprisoned. Right in the area where I live, attempts to exercise school choice will get you arrested on felony charges, and sent to prison. All for the "crime" of attempting to get a better quality education for your child.

He goes on to talk about the slippery slope of altruism, which has a tendency to progress from village to gulag.
