During a recent forum discussion, I was surprised to find a vast swathe of posters proclaiming marriage was finished. Interestingly, these people were all of a socialist mentality.
Suddenly gay marriage (an oxymoron if ever there was one) makes sense. It’s all about watering down the family and making marriage seem irrelevant and passé. By making marriage a pragmatic trinket with as much meaning as a congratulations card for passing a driving test. Just a thing we do, a flurry of drinking, dancing and costume dress which can be repeated as often as necessity demands.
It’s more entertainment for a society that has no regard for much but shovelling its heads full of vapid rubbish. Oh look, a cute cat dancing, a text from what’s his face, a snap of celebrity cellulite, a marriage, a Gucci handbag and an iPhone.
Fabians, governments and corporations don’t want family units and family values messing up their world of compliant individuals. Families are not as malleable as individuals. United we stand, divided we fall. Be it ever longer schooling, single parent supplements, early years nursery or marriage destruction, they are all attempts to do the same thing. Make people vulnerable, dependent and obedient.
