The core ideology of an American individual resides on a foundation of personal control over wealth, health and family: All aspects feed into this need. Gov. Herbert's "free-range" parenting bill is a necessary protection for parents against the power fantasies of people who don't have control over their lives due to a mix of factors involving poverty, health, career loss. It's disheartening to see the lengths we need to go to in order to keep systematic abuse at bay.
