In Australia they say “no tall poppies.” In corporate America they kindly say “dumb yourself down” in order to be in harmony with the culture of mediocrity. Here, a 9-year-old 5-time reading champ, Tyler Weaver, was told by the public library director, Marie Gandron, that he “hogs’’ the school’s reading contest every year and should “step aside” [...]

Doesn’t this strike people as being bizarre that almost all the individual states have passed these laws? Don’t we already have laws against aggression/violence?
