Ronald Castree certainly not.
But don’t ask me about all the women whose kids were taken and who are imprisoned on top of it! Above all, the completely staged farce of a trial regarding the Musas.
What is deeply worrying is what we call the “second generation radar”: when girls are in ‘care’ and become pregnant, their kids are virtually guaranteed to be taken.

- they can’t possibly defend themselves
- they are potentially NEVER given a chance to prove that they CAN be a good mother!
Society is truly being eroded from within.
