I write what I do; firstly to better my own ideas, then to possibly find more like-minded or open-minded people, and then to have some fun shaking things up a bit with philosophy to honor and value the mind, reality, and the individual.
Children should love and associate with their parents because it is in their own self interest, it benefits them. People should choose to never associate with people who are harmful and not beneficial, and shared DNA has no bearing.
