Adam Swift (born 1961) is a British political philosopher and sociologist who promotes liberal egalitarianism. He has published books on communitarianism, on the philosophical aspects of school choice, and on social justice, as well as an extremely successful introduction to contemporary political theory which has been translated into several languages.

Swift studied PPE at Balliol College, Oxford, where he was taught by Steven Lukes. He then did an MPhil in Sociology at Nuffield College, and subsequently became a Fellow of Balliol College. He completed his DPhil while a Fellow, on the topic of 'A Sociologically Informed Political Theory'.[1] He has since been Director of the Oxford Centre for the Study of Social Justice, and has held visiting positions at Harvard, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the Australian National University, and the University of Wisconsin at Madison.[2] He is currently working on developing a liberal egalitarian theory of the family with Harry Brighouse. Since January 2013, he has been Professor of Political Theory in the Department of Politics and International Studies at the University of Warwick. [3]

'Some jackass professor says that parents who read to their kids at bedtime are unfairly disadvantaging other kids: '

Does anybody care to take a guess at his political affiliation?

Dumbing down. Everyone is a winner. Is this really the way to prepare children to become mature adults who can function in a world that can have disappointments and nasty surprises? Now thoughtful parenting is an unfair advantage?? I am appalled.

What's the saying? Something about things adjusting to the lowest common denominator.

What about raising the standard so that EVERYBODY aspires to be good, involved parents? Some of our cherished family memories center around either me or Mr. Scandle reading to our kids.

Some jackass professor says that parents who read to their kids at bedtime are unfairly disadvantaging other kids:

(As a personal aside, we once got a letter home from our kids' school asking us to please stop sending such nice lunches, as it could make other kids with less capable parents feel bad about themselves. I kept that letter for years but lost it unfortunately.)

So anyway, here's what the bozo said:

"‘We could prevent elite private schooling without any real hit to healthy family relationships, whereas if we say that you can’t read bedtime stories to your kids because it’s not fair that some kids get them and others don’t, then that would be too big a hit at the core of family life.’

‘I don’t think parents reading their children bedtime stories should constantly have in their minds the way that they are unfairly disadvantaging other people’s children, but I think they should have that thought occasionally,’

If you go to "Tools" you can design a card Mrs. VA can hand out to business contacts.

You've mentioned her before VA and she sounds like such a joy <not>

I do not understand being someone's guest and acting that way. All I ask is to please not put anything that came from an animal in my food, and if that's too much too ask then I am more that capable of cooking and would be happy to cook for everyone.

I you wanted their input on the way you live you would have asked them. The only time I give unsolicited input to a guest/host is if I know that something is dangerous, horribly unhealthy for them, there are "politics" behind something that I *know* they would want to know about because it's something they normally care about OR they made the choice to be disrespectful to me about my lifestyle choices--in that last case they can expect an earful possibly including pictures and video :^P

I try to subscribe to the "More flies with honey than vinegar approach".

So Saturday night at a party Mrs VA meets this guy who works in a field similar to ours. They exchange business cards as it seems he might actually have useful contacts.

So the idiot emails her work email - of course, not from HIS work email - with a sexually explicit message.

Fucking.

Moron.

Mrs VA deserves a bit of hell too for giving her business card to someone at a swingers party....

i live by the same philosophy: i don't want anyone telling me how to live my life so i do my best to not say anything to anyone else about how they live theirs.

@ good: some cows have faces only a mother could love, it's true.

@ VA: how do you and mrs VA tolerate that for longer than an hour? yeeesh, they sound like...well, i won't go there.
