I don't know what to make of Mr. Strawberry Clock's scribblings. On the one hand, I must unequivocally reach out even to my most ostrich-like readers and show them how this screams of the old belief that money-grubbing, prudish four-flushers are merely snappish busybodies. But on the other hand, Strawberry needs to step out of the dark ages. Wait! Before you dismiss me as huffy, hear me out. To most people, the list of his mad overgeneralizations reads like a comic strip but Strawberry's doctrines are actually taken seriously by his habitués.
That's just one side of the coin. The other side is that Strawberry uses the very intellectual tools he criticizes, namely consequentialist arguments rather than arguments about truth or falsity. Last I checked, he may break up society's solidarity and cohesiveness right after he reads this letter. Let him. When you least expect it, I will place blame where it belongs -- in the hands of Strawberry and his pernicious understrappers.
As a matter of fact, implying that Strawberry answers to no one is no different from implying that Strawberry's blessing is the equivalent of a papal imprimatur. Both statements are ludicrous. Already, some temperamental, overbearing witlings have begun to deliver an additional blow to dignity and self-worth, and with terrifying and tragic results. What traducements will follow from their camp is anyone's guess. I have just enough stomach left to address one last instance of Mr. Strawberry Clock's vindictive imbecility: He sincerely believes that children don't need as much psychological attentiveness, protection, and obedience training as the treasured household pet.
