Entire families could be put into care in radical plan, under a proposal that surfaced yesterday in New Zealand, while I was writing my commentary on Shelter for Jews opens.
Pardon the workings of my suspicious mind, but when such things are checked out in more depth, it is often found that there is a common source or driving force for such proposals for similar actions for radical social re-engineering at opposite ends of the world.
