When are the liberals finally going to say sorry to the child victims of the sexual revolution?
This from the liberal Child and Family blog confirms what conservatives have been saying for decades – broken families created from a broken moral and value system have poor outcomes for poor children.
They do not have poor outcomes for those who advocated for this revolution. No. They still get married and protect their own kids by passing on a married privilege. It is just the poor kids who are left who are screwed over. As usual with the liberals they own all the pleasure from this moral upheaval and reject all the pain.
Professor Marcia Carlson tell us: ‘Today there are more complex families. That’s down to a simple explanation – parental unions are much more unstable than 50 years ago, but we’re having just as many children.’ You don’t say professor.
In addition, ‘the co-location of marriage, living together and biological connectedness that characterised families of the mid-20th century is far less common today.’ Did you get that?
So broken families are ‘complex families’ and the married nuclear family ‘is the co-location of marriage, living together and biological connectedness.’ Do keep up.
The blog goes on to point out the realities of broken families that any person with an ounce of common sense always knew – the more committed you are, the greater the investment, both financial and emotional, in the children.
It continues: “Does it matter that children are being raised in family forms of varying complexity? Yes, to the extent that complexity dilutes resources available to children.” Again you do not have to be a professor to know this. But it helps that the liberals are finally realising there is a downside to all this ‘complexity’ – known as broken families to you and me.
The liberals say nothing can be done. “So, what’s the best way to tackle the issues thrown up by family complexity? It seems unlikely that the stability of childbearing unions/marriage is suddenly going to be restored – or that public policy can affect this very much.”
There you have it – nothing can be done. We should just pack up our bags and head home but not before handing over our wallets. Not our judgement mind, just the cash.
The professor believes: “We need to become more sensitive to the increasing complexity of families, with social programmes recognising that many children spend time in different households and that adults may have family commitments beyond a single household.” More ‘sensitive’- ah yes I believe this is liberal jargon for more money and ‘social programmes’ means more government intervention in the parlance of our liberal times. Just let me wave my big government wand and all will be better once again.
The liberals really are shameless. They destroy the culture which conferred so many privileges on poor children while maintaining these very privileges – the privilege of having a mother and father married and living in your own home (the co-location thingy as explained above) for their own kids.
And then to top it all off they create a vast bureaucracy and academy (employment for them) to administer the government programmes and social security systems needed to shore up the broken families created by the very destruction they wrought. It is quite the trick.
