i don't think it's a problem for libertarians that a government is dictating what teachers teach at public schools

beyond the existance of public schools in the first place, of course
Beyond said existence, of course. ;)

Honestly my big problem with schools is that people get the crazy idea that they should try to capture them and then they can pass on their ideology to children that aren't their own.

Ah that's the fulcrum, isn't it

I am a teacher, I will pass on my ideology about math to these children. But also I will go too far and pass on my politics because my politics are so very very moral

I figure the optimal policy is to stop protecting languages until only the strongest remains

Rashida Tlaib had this to say about the violence at the Al Aqsa Mosque:
It’s a sacred site for Muslims. This is equivalent to attacking the Church of the Holy Sepulchre for Christians, or the Temple Mount for Jews.
It’s like she doesn’t know that the Al Aqsa Mosque is literally built on the Temple Mount and that Jews are not allowed to worship there.

No, not at all

But there's something weird in interpreting "You are not allowed in our mosque" as some kind of self-imposed exile. It's as if when we obey rules, that that's entirely us doing it and not the rules

I think it's probably closer to being a "it's complicated and it involves politics" kind of thing.

Thanks by the way, I saw his question last night right before I went to sleep, but I hadn't had a chance to respond.

this is confusing to me. maybe the wikipedia article is written poorly? it sounds like the muslims don't make the rules (because why would muslims self-impose age restrictions?)

i definitely don't know understand any of this

Uh, that's not why Jews aren't allowed to worship there. It used to be.

The rules are made by the Jordanian Waqf, which is an Islamic administrative agency

When I saw the line in wikipedia about jewish religious law imposing restrictions I wanted to find more about that and obviously it's complicated but there's strong arguments against setting foot on the holy site, by the jewish faith. So the idea that they shouldn't be praying there is kind of self imposed.
