I have nothing against you. It's just that your damned parents are ruining life for themselves and everyone else.
A quarter of the adult population faces an "anti-paedophile" test in an escalation of child protection policies, according to a report.
The launch of a new Government agency will see 11.3 million people vetted for any criminal past before they are approved to have contact with children aged under 16.
But the increase in child protection measures is so great it is "poisoning" relationships between the generations, according to respected sociologist Professor Frank Furedi.
While this is happening in the United Kingdom, justly famous for overreaching hysteria that's reached the point where grown men are afraid to help children in danger and parents are arrested for taking innocent photos of their kids, the British are by no means alone on their way to becoming an almost literal nanny-state.
So kids, how about it? You've screwed things up, with your stupidity, your uselessness, and your inability to defend yourselves, to the point where a quarter of the population of a country once famous for its heritage of liberty is going to have to undergo government screening and background checks just to talk to you. People who, centuries ago, overthrew governments and killed kings for far less.
No, the people who claim to be protecting you aren't your friends. They're using you, to enact policies of social control that would have them up against the wall after trial by the revolutionary committee in a sane country.
Wise up. When will you learn to take take responsibility for the mess you've created?
