  • The Alberta Report, now called The Report, is a weekly newsmagazine in Time Magazine format. It presents Christian, conservative values. Check the links to some of their articles at this Index

Anorexia Nervosa — Changing Ideal of Beauty or Insane Obsession?

Articles from Der Spiegel — Abstracts

The wonders of technology have brought us speedy, cheap and convenient communication tools. The flip side of the blessings of modern communications is, that many of the devastating ideas that have brought about the planned and wholesale destruction of our families in your country and have created unimaginable numbers of fatherless children, are being spread speedily to other countries.

It would be hard to find better examples of the presence of this international calamity than in the following articles that were produced by Matthias Matussek, a journalist and author writing for Der Spiegel (The Mirror), a widely-read German weekly news-magazine in a style similar to Time Magazine.

  • The article "Men are the Losers" provides an overview of the state of German family law and its consequences.

  • The second article in Der Spiegel, The disfranchised Father, provides an in-depth look into the issues leading up to and involving the destruction of marriages and their effects on society.

  • The article by Matthias Matussek " Sisters, Stop Sucking Your Thumbs!" was not published in a printed version of Der Spiegel, but it was shown on Der Spiegel's web site.

The first two articles from the 1997 11 17 issue of Der Spiegel ,written in excellent style and well researched, spell out the details of the makings of an international social catastrophe. Even though the articles deal mainly with German circumstances of marriages in ruins, replace the names of the concepts and locations with those of your preference and you'll find that the issues discussed in them concern anyone in any other developed nation to a similar extent.

The third article listed above is, like the first two, a collection of excerpts from Matthias Matussek's book "The Fatherless Society," this time from his introduction to the book. M. Matussek asked that the title of that article be changed to what is shown above, rather than calling it "The Women are at Fault" as was done in the posting on the web site of Der Spiegel .

Battered Women's Shelters

They are receiving a lot of support through our governments. Our politicians want to make sure that they don't go against the public sentiments that were instilled in the general public through an all-out campaign garnering sympathy for the plight of the legions of women who are victims of "male brutality" that some of the heterophobic feminists have likened to the Nazi holocaust. Erin Pizzey , founder of the first modern battered women's shelter in the world, now describes them as bunkers in the gender war, from whose safety family-hostile feminists direct the vilification of men in the planned destruction of our families.

Child Abuse

Child Access

Child Apprehensions by the State — Why?

Who owns the youth controls the future.

— Napoleon and many others,
amongst them, Socrates (tongue firmly in cheek), Hitler and Lenin  

Give me your 4-year-olds, and within a generation I'll construct a Socialist State.

— Vladimir Lenin  

First they came for the fathers, then for the mothers, and now for both parents in intact families. In the end all children will be in the care, custody and control of the State.

— Walter H. Schneider

The goal of state-control, even state-ownership of children has been the mark of all totalitarian system throughout history.  It began on a large scale in the USSR — from the very start of the Russian Revolution.  It continued to be pursued in Nazi Germany, in all of the communist countries, and especially in the People's Republic of China.

Now that feminism spread from its communist roots (see Matriarchy in USSR — off-site) to the whole world, the forcible removal of children from their parents' homes is escalating and spreading throughout the world as well, foremost in those countries where feminist totalitarianism made the greatest advances.  See the report identified here:

Brainwashing the Children... A Global Report, Part 4

by Jill Cohen Walker

May 24, 2006 02:23 PM EST

As the battle for total control over our children escalates, the bastions of social services in almost every nation are working overtime to steal them and turn them into state property. This is a global effort, not just an assault on American children, and no effort is too great to those who want to brainwash the children and make them citizens of the new global order.
(Link to story, Link to index for all four parts of the report)

Here follow two pointers to articles that describe similar efforts in the same time frame to brainwash children at opposite ends of the world.  Is that serendipity or a concerted effort that is part of a global agenda?  It is most likely the latter.

  • Gay School Guide

    By Kelvin Healey, Herald Sun (Australia), 2006 06 04

    VICTORIAN schools are being advised to dump the words "mother" and "father" by a controversial new teachers manual that promotes the cause of same-sex parents.

    Out of sensitivity to same-sex parent families, teachers should use "parent" or "carer" instead, the manual states.

    Schools should also put up posters of gay celebrities in schools and not use gender-specific toys, the free Learn to Include teacher's manual urges. (Full Story — off-site)

Throw Momma from the Train - And Dad, Too?

Just in time for Mother's Day, the California Senate has voted to approve S.B. 1437, a measure that could eliminate mom and dad from school textbooks. (Full Story)

The pursuit of the planned destruction of the family is part of the systematic re-engineering not only of civilization but of humanity itself.   Think of it as evolution in action. 

It is unavoidable: in any society in which the basest ideology — the one that is the cheapest because it requires no sacrifices of its adherents — is permitted to thrive unopposed and in which all moral standards are normalized down to the level of that ideology, that ideology — no matter how deplorable or despicable it may be in absolute terms — will rise to dominate all others.

To gain an impression of how effective such a program is and what its consequences are, check PROPAGANDA IN THE PROPAGANDA STATE [the USSR]

...For those Marxists who insisted on creating the world's first classless society, children meant everything. Adults would repeat, "Under communism there is only one privileged class – the children.
     Stalin and his circle declared a war (as in the civil war) against the counter-revolutionary forces, traditional peasants, and called the young to the front lines.  Often Pioneers confronted a familiar enemy: their parents." [The Pioneers were the children in the Russian youth movement.  They were encouraged to rat on their parents and were depicted as heroes if they did. --WHS]

Ontario Children's Aid Society sends SWAT-style police personnel to forcibly remove seven children from an intact, well-functioning Christian family in Aylmer, dragging well-behaved children out of their parents' home, screaming, struggling, kicking, one by one in a five-hour process, solely because the parents refused to promise that they would never spank their children.  There was no evidence of any child abuse by any measure.

Are Child Protective Services giving you problems in the US? You are not alone.  Bill Clinton instituted a scheme of financial rewards for individual states of between $2,000 to $4,000 per month for every child placed in foster care.  Those rewards are matched by state funding. 
     Guess what.  Children are now being removed from their parents on any given pretense, and the foster care system rakes in record profits with no accountability of where the money it makes is going, while parents fight in vain to retain their rights and go bankrupt in the process.
     During 1996, Clare County in Michigan removed 50% of the children in the county from their families for alleged neglect and abuse in the home.

An epidemic of state-sponsored kidnapping feeds a tyrannical system hungry for revenues.  Child Protective Services and Children's Aid Societies systematically and increasingly often rob children from their parents.  Kafkaesque chicaneries that the targeted families find impossible to comply with are the tools used to keep the revenues rolling in.  Many families don't survive the ordeals that they are being subjected to by any given CPS or CAS. 

  • Is foster care a better way to raise children?

We know that it is profitable for the foster care system, although all income for the foster care system is derived at taxpayers' expense, but on average it does very little for children other than to severely damage them.

  • Foster children were 10 times more likely to be abused than children in the general public. [1986 and 1990 survey conducted by the National Foster Care Education Project]

  • Children in the "care" of the government are more than 150 times more likely to become incarcerated than other children. [Based on information provided by By Timothy W. Maier in an article HORRORS OF THE NON-HOME,
    Update 1998 10 18: The U.K. Secretary of Health, Frank Dobson, reports similar calamities in Britain]

  • Once a child is in foster care, there is a 40 percent chance that he will never again see his parents. More than half will be away for at least one year and the majority will have multiple placements, some in as many as 15 different homes. [Timothy W. Maier in an article HORRORS OF THE NON-HOME ]

  • ...when the allegedly abused child leaves the system at age 18, the prognosis is not good. For example, in Massachusetts 60 percent of the state's criminals come from foster homes or state institutions, while in California that number is closer to 69 percent. [Timothy W. Maier in an article HORRORS OF THE NON-HOME ]

Child Custody Awards by Sex

Note: In some of the information accessible at the following links, indications are given of the numbers of children for who joint custody or custody by both parents has been awarded. It must be realized that these figures are based on court-ordered access and custody awards. These figures bear no relationship to the actual division in custody, as they neither reflect the results of access denial, nor the fact that "joint custody" in the vast majority of cases gives the father only minimum "visitation rights," that is, as a rule no more than a few hours on every second weekend.

It is very common for an expunged father who comes to excercise his court-ordered visitation and access rights to encounter access denial.  See:

Note and links to articles on how to make use of recordings and how to keep them safe

Any "gains" that appear to have been made overt he past few years in favour of "joint custody" were made at the expense of reducing sole custody awards to fathers.

Child Support

This is a study report on equity principles in Child support legislation in Australia.  Farr and Buurman conclude:

...that equity principles can be applied to Child Support and that they provide considerable illumination. We also conclude that the current Australian formula is overly onerous to NRPs [non-residential parents] and overly generous to RPs [residential parents] when compared against equity principles.

  • Politics of Child Support
    American Political Science Association;

    Sweden Backs Off U.S.-Style Child Support Reforms

    Government Investigation Reveals Fundamental Flaws
    By Roger F. Gay

    1975-2000 was an era of radical international child support reform, beginning in the United States. Swedish investigation into the effects of U.S.-style child support reform revealed the creation of massive debt and a high percent of fathers forced into poverty. A new government report suggests corrective action. The article below explains why we should not be surprised that Sweden was among the last to fall to radical child support reform arguments and the first to begin the process of restoration; while the U.S. record of reform is an ongoing embarrassment.

  • Who Really Failed: Students Or The System?

    By Phyllis Schlafly

All over the country, students, their parents and teachers are in an uproar about the tens of thousands who flunked the test designated as the requirement for high school graduation. Threats of withholding diplomas have brought out accusations, recriminations, and even angry mobs.
(Full Story (off-site)


Robert H. Bork, in Slouching Towards Gomorrah (Chapt. 11), explains that:

In many universities today, ... intellectual integrity comes in a distant second to political correctness....
   ...so-called disciplines vie with one another in claiming victimhood, but feminism is by far the strongest and most imperialistic, its influence suffusing the most traditional academic departments and university administrations.  Feminists are revising and radicalizing textbooks and curricula in the humanities and the social sciences....they have made campuses extremely unpleasant, especially for white males, who are subject to harassment and demands that they toe the feminist cultural and political line.
   Though most feminists reject the idea of difference between men and women, more recently a coterie has appeared that insists upon, and celebrates just such difference.  These women claim that rationality, sometimes called "linear thinking," is a coercive tool of the oppressive patriarchy.  That may be because they have noticed that evidence and logic are running heavily against the no-difference position.  It is necessary, therefore, to identify evidence and logic with the enemy and to exalt intuitive and emotional "women's ways of knowing." These "difference feminists" claim to perceive all of reality through the "sex/gender lens."....

If the term "radical feminism" (a.k.a. Marxist- or socialist-feminism) is somewhat new to you, you need to expand your knowledge.  After all, radical feminism, the currently controlling faction of feminism, governs just about everything that is happening in your life.  See,

Bork cannot possibly be advanced by any reasonable individual, Stuart Birks explains — in the radical feminists' own words — what the gender lens is and how it is made to operate in academic studies: Is feminist research impartial?
