Am I alone in fearing the excesses to which such a program could lead?

Besides, how do you measure, let alone define "social exclusion", and how do you reach the conclusion that such socially excluded people will be committing criminal acts?

Sure, some parents are better than others, but am I correct in finding that the program reeks of racial and class prejudice (without naming them) and could even make room for old-fashioned eugenics (you know, like, "these parents carry a gene that makes them prone to obesity, fat people are stigmatized, therefore...")?

Couldn't Michael Moore just fly them all to Cuba instead?
