Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Are you really suggesting that children should have the same legal status as adults, and that not giving them that legal status is equivalent to beating and abusing them, and also women, minorities, etc, etc?

No. I am suggesting that each day we found another that law that was deeply unjust, maintaining power structures we wanted to destroy, or simply outdated. There were a few acceptable laws existing too, but we had to question and doubt all of them, to find out which is which. Very interesting for the people who now revive the thing. Most of them belong to the same end of the political spectrum that then told us that gay sex had to be largely banned, and women's freedom and equality would destroy families and the values of the west. We decided to distrust them on principle, and that was a sound decision. It meant that we had to find out what to maintain by hard work and endless discussions.
