Who Own Your Child?

This is another beautiful day. The twins are in an argument again.
Once upon a time, on a sunny evening with a distant rainbow in the east, sitting on the wet green lawn near the roses, Albert and Trebla went into an argument AGAIN...

Trebla: Do you own you child?

Albert: That is a wrong question? We don't own anybody. We have well passed the slave era.

Trebla: You are wrong. Someone own all our children.

Albert: Who?

Trebla: Definitely not you and me!

Albert: Please explain.

Trebla: Although you couple gave birth to your children, can you take their life away?

Albert: Of course not!

Trebla: That's right. By the concept of ownership, you can destory the thing you own if you so desire - even may not be morally right to do so.

Albert: So, we don't own our children. What is your point?

Trebla: Someone own our children!

Albert: Please explain.

Trebla: Someone can legally destory our children, Does that mean that that someone own our children?

Albert: But that someone does not exist!

Trebla: Wrong, that is the government who send our children to war knowing that there is a high possibility of dying.

Albert: But that's bcause we need to protect our country!

Trebla: In history, how wars were started? All wars are started because of someone's aggression and ambition. If there is no such evil person, there is no need to protect our country because there will be no people attacking us to start with.

Albert: But, we are talk about today!

Trebla: Yes, it is happening today. The US president sends his citizens to fight an unnecessary war. Does that demonstrate that the US president owns all the children of American people?

Albert: Aha!
