For ‘equity’ fathers must ‘give away’ their children to the state, says Democratic politician

The democratic politician from California Joe Mathews caused an intense backlash against his proposal to abolish paternity rights and turn children over to the state to achieve the version of “equity” pushed by leftists.

“California should abolish paternity in the name of fairness. “If California is ever going to achieve true equity, the state must require parents to give away their children,” Mathews wrote in the regional Ventura County Star on Jan. 13.

He expanded on his proposal: “My solution—making raising your own children illegal—is simple, and while we wait for the legislation to pass, we can act now. The rich and poor should trade kids, and homeowners might swap children with their homeless neighbor.”

The pandemic in Xi’an city of Shaanxi province in China might worsen the global chip shortage crisis, as it has to overcome the virus with the government’s headstone COVID-zero policies. So far, the ancient capital has been closed for 20 days, with residents complaining on social media that the measures were so harsh and leaving them with shortages of food, daily supplies, and medical care. Companies, meanwhile, are in trepidation as their factories in the city have not been able to resume operation and produce supplies. Xi’an, the largest city in northwest China with a population of more than 13 million people, is an important gateway to Central Asia, the Middle East, and Europe under China’s Belt and Road Initiative. The city possesses six pillar industries, including electronic information, automobile manufacturing, high-end equipment, aerospace, new materials, new energy, and biomedicine. In that, the semiconductor industry is the most thriving sector, dominated by South Korea's Samsung, and the other is the automobile industry driven by the Chinese private car company BYD.
