Reader’s Comment of the Day: Opponents of marriage want to make women hostages to the state


In response to Kathy Gyngell: Election campaign secret No 1. Don’t mention what’s left of the family, timbazo wrote:

Recommended reading – David Cooper’s ‘Death of the Family‘ – to show from where the opponents of the family are coming. Do not expect to agree with a word of it. What is startling is that the interests of children are not considered once in the entire book.

Of course, the opponents of the family did not just aim to liberate women from the patriarchy. Their further aim was to make the mothers and their children hostages of the state. In fact, their ulterior aim was to bring down welfare capitalism by overburdening the state.

By the way, Major’s ‘Back to Basics’ campaign collapsed because senior members of his own party, including that we now know himself did not practise what they preached. I don’t see it as a step backward that people are no longer prepared to obey their ‘betters’ when they say ‘do as I say and not as I do’.
