I’m a Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse fan. The article says it: people either find her plucky or abrasive. I find her plucky–what’s more, she is kind-hearted and treats everyone with respect. So I’m not sure how the abrasive thing happens.
A portion of it:
Without strong families, you can’t have free markets or limited government. Instead, you get ‘The Life of Julia.’” This is a reference to a slide-show advertisement from President Obama’s 2012 reelection campaign that treated a fictitious woman’s cradle-to-grave dependence on government as a triumph of progressivism.
and my favourite quote:
Is it really so hard to say that children are entitled to parents? This is the birthright of every child, not an impossible dream.” She pauses, then concludes: “When nothing is politically possible, you don’t need to trim sails. You can just tell the truth.”
