Adolf Hitler had a father. So did Osama bin Laden. Niether turned out to be much like their fathers. And there are plenty of dads who bring their kids up to believe in a racist and extremist way of life. Have a look at the progression of the Palestinian/Isreali war over the generations. Anyway, getting back on topic. I'd like to see some form of means test to the whole thing. Not sure exactly what requirements should be met, but that would at least insure that the child will have a safe place to grow up in money and stability wise.
