In an interview with ABC Radio last week, philosopher and professor Adam Swift said that since “bedtime stories activities . . . do indeed foster and produce . . . [desired] familial relationship goods,” he wouldn’t want to ban them, but that parents who “engage in bedtime-stories activities” should definitely at least feel kinda bad about it sometimes: “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,” he said.
What a complete turn-around from reality--it's not the parents who don't read to their kids who do those kids harm, it's other parents who actually do good for their own kids who...oh, hell, I can't even present such a stupid argument without throwing up a little bit in my mouth.
