This is an important question in the light of the recent case in
Britain  where a mother and father of
four children have been jailed for 12 months, not for child abuse, but for
asserting their right to rear their children contrary to the way the state
We are constantly given the excuse that the state is obliged to decide
on the lives of children when the parents are in such conflict that they
can not agree on the best course of action for the welfare of the
This is a very thin argument.
The reality is that the state induces one of the parents, usually the
mother, with lucrative financial and social benefits, to petition the
courts for them to decide in her favour with the help of state-funded
legal aid despite both parents being plainly 'fit' and the father carrying

It is no mere coincidence that the founders of feminism were deeply

We now know after a massive fifty year experiment that

All western societies are now feminist. This means that the state
decides what is in the best interests of our children and how they will be
