In the early days of the Internet, when web browsers first came on the market, I found that I had problems finding information about advice for fathers who are being put through the wringer. There were then few websites, but there were bulletin boards.
The first time I looked for whether there was a fathers rights organization in or near Edmonton, Alberta, it took me about six months for someone to put me on the right track. The lead came to me in a round-about way, in the form of advice from someone in the USA.
That experience led me to start the website for Fathers for Life. I figured that it was wrong that any man in need of help and advice would have to look for months to find it.
Now I get help requests from all over the world, but mostly from the USA and from Canada. Most of those come through e-mail, but some of them come by phone.
Early this morning I had a call from a man in Michigan whose boys had been placed in foster care because of a drug charge. He is holding a good job now and his life is on the straight and narrow, while he had the misfortune to be a passenger in a vehicle the driver of which was charged with possession and transporting drugs. Of course, he got charged and now mentioned that he had been advised to plead guilty, so as to get off easy. Well, for one thing, getting off easy involves having another offence added to his criminal record. Guilty or not, the charges he faces are at least legally warranted. That is not the case with the woman who called me last night.
The woman called because she wanted to know whether there is any way by which her son can protect himself against false allegations of domestic violence. He apparently went through a separation and divorce, and his ex got custody of his boy, of course, while he has standard visitation rights. Now his ex is charging him again with domestic violence in connection with an assault she alleges he committed when he came to pick up his son.
It appears that there were witnesses who will testify that no assault took place at the time of the exchange of the boy, but now the mother of the father asked what he can do to protect himself against further wrongful allegations of violence by her son, and how an end can be put to that apparently widespread practice of women making such allegations against men and fathers whom they want out of their lives for good, except for the child-support money they will be forced to fork over.
We got into a little bit of a discussion on that, during which I provided a run-down of the causes and history of the evolution of Canadian feminist jurisprudence. She still wanted to know what can be done to put an end to the widespread practice of making false allegations of violence and the associated injustices perpetrated by the courts.
I told her that there is no protection against that, no magic bullet, no remedy but to abolish feminism as the driving political force for the policies that make false abuse allegations so exceedingly effective and so often used effectively by women.
I explained to the woman that we live in a country that is becoming ever more socialistic, and that the evolution of Canadian feminist jurisprudence has the same Marxist roots that brought about increasingly oppressive feminist jurisprudence in the USSR. Her response was that she came from [one of the nations] in the former USSR, but that terrible injustices such as those we have here now in relation to false abuse allegations never were a problem in the area of the USSR she came from.
I disagreed with her on that, but I will let you be the judge. Have a look at Matriarchy in USSR.
