Destruction of the Family
Feminism and the Jewish Question
Sorry, but that article is no longer available. It had to be taken down because the author, a Jewish lawyer from NY, became afraid that Canada's human rights tribunals would cause him grief on account of the article. However, an article by Glenn Sacks expresses similar concerns. Look it up.

Faith and Families
Families — what they where, what many think they should or should not be, and what they ought to be: a permanent union for a man and a woman, the best possible environment in which to raise the next generation of well-functioning, well-adjusted citizens, and the healthiest, safest, wealthiest and least violent environment for women, men and children.
The Marriage Premium; A book – and an institution – gets exonerated. (Commentary, graphs and a link to the research paper being commented on)
The following graph has been constructed from data in the research paper. It compares hourly wages for three groups of men:
For the first time in the history of research on marriage, Ginther and Zovodny appear to have successfully shown that the "marriage premium" – the tendency of married individuals to make more money than single people – is an actual effect of marriage, and not just a function of a preference shown by both employers and potential spouses for people with qualities likely to bring about success.

Marriage is unique and should retain its distinct status in law
The Evangelical Fellowship of Canada (EFC) made a submission to the Law Commission of Canada, as part of their consultation on "Close Personal Relationships," arguing that marriage is unique and should retain its distinct status in law.

The Good News About Welfare Reform
A Heritage Foundation report (Sept. 2001) by Robert Rector and Patrick F. Fagan, The Good News About Welfare Reform
The report fits right into any discussion of the factors contributing to the planned destruction of our families. The conclusion is inescapable:
Welfare to "families" results in farewell to the family.
The report provides hard evidence that a reduction in the easy availability of welfare results without any doubt in a general strengthening of marriages, the reduction of poverty and hunger and, most importantly, a halt to escalating numbers of illegitimate births -- contrary to all of the dire predictions of disaster that were made by feminists and other liberals when they attempted to prevent the Welfare Reform Bill from passing.
The report makes very strong recommendations that, in view of the positive results of the welfare reform in the US, at least 10 percent of the funding for TANF should be used for measures aimed directly at strengthening the family.

Defense of Marriage requires a constitutional amendment
President Bush [2004 02 24]: ...a few judges and local authorities are presuming to change the most fundamental institution of civilization. Their actions have created confusion on an issue that requires clarity....Ages of experience have taught humanity that the commitment of a husband and wife to love and to serve one another promotes the welfare of children and the stability of society....Today I call upon the Congress to promptly pass, and to send to the states for ratification, an amendment to our Constitution defining and protecting marriage as a union of man and woman as husband and wife....
The Planned Destruction of the Family
Freedom, Equality, and Society's Treatment of Men and Families
A discussion of the totalitarian roots of the politics of sex and the implementation of the agenda for the planned destruction of our families
The use of force to achieve equality of outcome destroys freedom and families. To bring equality of outcome about for women requires discrimination against men and massive asset- and income-transfers from men to women. It's a lure that many women find impossible to resist. On the other hand, men, as well as women, are lured also through sexual freedom (the early communists called it "free love") although there is nothing free about free love. Both trends motivate more and more people to forego the altruism of families for the care by Father State via increasingly harsh, progressive and family-hostile taxation.
In the course of the implementation of the agenda for the planned destruction of our families, in all nations in whom the concept of western chivalry is part of social traditions, men die between six to fourteen years sooner than women. The two most populous nations on Earth experience virtually no differences in the average life expectancies of the sexes. (Full Story)
There is a great need to promote IMD (International
Men's Day) to raise awareness, largely even amongst men, about systemic
discrimination against men:

MEN ARE THE WAY THEY ARE, Warren Farrell explains that men and women
are equally powerless but that men and boys are being indoctrinated to
admire women and to follow career paths that enable men to give women what
women want. For example:
What Are Boys Good For?
What does a teenage girl learn to give to a
boy? Let's look at a thirteen-page spread in Teen-the Christmas 1984
issue. Approximately seventy presents are mentioned, with an average price
of about thirty dollars (over two thousand dollars' [close to US$5,000 in
2007 dollars — F4L] worth of presents). Only one is for a male-pajamas
for a baby boy. As with Ms., no presents for boyfriends.
There are several teenage boys shown in the
pictures. One admires a girl while she admires herself in the mirror;
another is towing a girl's brand-new car. The same use of men as in
Is the girl in the Teen spread helping
the boy who has attached her car to a tow truck? No. She drapes herself over
the tow truck. And how does she learn to handle a stressful situation? The
caption explains: "If a stressful situation causes complexion concerns, keep
skin under control with Noxzema Acne 12. And pass the time in an
All twelve days of Christmas run the same
pattern: "Keep tabs on your weight," "File your nails ... ," "Massage your
hands," "Massage your feet," "Turn heads in your direction by keeping lips
lusciously lubricated .... " What does he get? Nothing is mentioned but her
beauty. What lessons does he learn? Admire and rescue. [Emphasis
by F4L] In Teen. In Ms.
Do teenage boys' magazines show a girl towing
his brand-new car, while he drapes himself over her tow truck and
worries about his acne? Hardly.
In men's magazines there are only a few gifts
for men to buy women. Remember the principle of the De Beers transfer. She
chooses the diamond and chooses among the men her beauty power can attract
to buy it. Which is why his ads are for how to become successful enough to
buy whatever she chooses; hers are to become beautiful enough to be able to
make the choice of both the gift and the man to buy the gift. Men's
magazines do not feature many gifts for women because men are expected to do
the buying after consulting the women, not the magazine, and to concentrate
their energies on making the money.
ARE THE WAY THEY ARE, By Warren Farrell, p 34-35
Once they become men (or perhaps even sooner), men
(or boys) begin to catch on. For example:
Why is changing a light bulb always a guy's job? Because women have more
important things to do - like making men feel useful and important by giving
them things to do, like changing light bulbs.
How many divorced men does it take to change a light bulb? None. They never
get the house anyway.

It will take quite some time yet, however, before a majority of
society gets Warren Farrell's message expressed in the following.
One of the fascinating
parts about men is our tendency to subject ourselves to war, physical abuse,
and psychological abuse and call it "power." The ability to be totally out
of control while continuing to view ourselves as the ones with the power can
have certain advantages to a woman. As expressed in this poem:
He bought me
drinks all evening
in response to just a wink
Then accepted my invitation to
repair my kitchen sink
Then I brought him into beddy-bye
to get a little sex
Then couldn't help but smile
when he called it conquest!
ARE THE WAY THEY ARE, By Warren Farrell, p.
That story, translated into a joke that is far more ironic than
it is funny, goes like this:
An Irishman an Englishman and a Scotsman were sitting in a
bar in Sydney. The view was fantastic, the beer excellent, and the food
exceptional. "But" said the Scotsman, "I still prefer the pubs back home. Why,
in Glasgow there's a little bar called McTavish's. Now the landlord there
goes out of his way for the locals so much that when you buy 4 drinks he
will buy the 5th drink for you."
"Well," said the Englishman "at my local, the Red Lion, the barman there will
buy you your 3rd drink after you buy the first 2."
"Ahhh that's nothin'," said the Irishman, "Back home in Dublin there's Ryan's
Bar. Now the moment you set foot in the place they'll buy you a drink, then
another, all the drinks you like. Then when you've had enough drink they'll
take you upstairs and see that you get laid. All on the house."
The Englishman and Scotsman immediately pour scorn on the Irishman's claims.
He swears every word is true.
"Well," said the Englishman, "Did this actually happen to you?"
"Not myself personally, no" said the Irishman, "but it did happen to my

Men's problem is that
women's "powerlessness" has been amply addressed throughout the history of
evolution, intensively so since the advent of radical feminism
[*], but that men's
powerlessness received little or no attention. Instead, men curry women's favors
by giving women gifts, even the gift of men's lives.
While in the past men were enticed to live up to the social duties
imposed upon them with promises that they would be paid back for that through
society paying them appreciation, honour and respect, today
— thanks to decades of feminist slandering of men, intended to "increase"
the social value of women — men are being vilified for being men, and not much else matters.

Marxist- or socialist-feminism) is somewhat new to you, you need to expand

faction of feminism, governs just about everything that is happening in your

From Marxism to Feminism: The planned destruction of the American family
Statement by Bill Wood
FC-8 Hearing on Waste, Fraud, and Abuse July 17, 2003
TESTIMONY FOR THE [US] WAYS AND MEANS COMMITTEE
The planned destruction of the family was part of the communist agenda from its inception by Karl Marx and Frederic Engels. It became government policy in the USSR in about 1917. It was so successful in the USSR that it threatened to destroy society in the USSR. Curiously, while in the 1940s the USSR took steps to repair the damages its family-hostile policies had caused, American communists imported the Soviet agenda for the planned destruction of the family into the USA. It has been and continues to be promoted by left-leaning liberals in the West ever since. Full Story
The planned destruction of the family — Swedish Style
Some years ago a British journalist returned from Sweden saying: "I have seen the Future and it doesn't work." Despite much evidence of the truth of that observation, many Americans - especially those in sociology and related disciplines - help maintain the belief in the myth that Sweden's Welfare State is still a model for us and others to emulate. ...
Destroying the Family: Swedish Style
By Eric Brodin
That article, published in the Washington Inquirer, was excerpted from Eric Brodin's address given to the Eagle Forum's Annual Conference, Washington, D.C., on September 21, 1985. It's too bad that nobody heeded it. The planned destruction of the family, with aims, methods and consequences clearly identified by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels in their Communist Manifesto in 1848/49, is proceeding unabatedly in all developed nations.
The Effects of Divorce on America
A Heritage Foundation report that identifies beyond any doubt that the epidemic of divorce is destroying society
Each year, over 1 million American children suffer the divorce of their parents; moreover, half of the children born this year to parents who are married will see their parents divorce before they turn 18. Mounting evidence in social science journals demonstrates that the devastating physical, emotional, and financial effects that divorce is having on these children will last well into adulthood and affect future generations.
Fiscal conservatives should realize that federal and state governments spend $150 billion per year to subsidize and sustain single-parent families. By contrast, only $150 million is spent to strengthen marriage.
Thus, for every $1,000 spent to deal with the effects of family disintegration, only $1 is spent to prevent that disintegration.
