ALL TRUE. How about this::

I lived in Sweden, where BOTH mothers and fathers get a combined total of 480 days leave. Four hundred and eighty days. They choose to split it up in whatever way works. For 390 days, they are entitled to 80% of their normal income.

Now THIS is a country that values PEOPLE. HUMANS. SOCIETY.

Yep, it’s expensive. Nothing, nothing, nothing is for free. And as much as our free-market capitalist society would like it to be, PEOPLE are not commodities, to be squeezed dry, traded, and de-humanized.
