Family courts solve divorce applications backlog

Family Courts (they essentially give marching orders to Child Protective Services) – put in place to solve a growing divorce applications backlog – target men.  They also seriously hurt children. Family courts were to mitigate the divorce applications backlog in the regular court system (in the early 1960s, waiting periods for court hearings after divorce applications were three and more years – and rapidly growing longer). The growing divorce applications backlog was a consequence of the legalization of ‘no-fault’ divorce. In ‘no-fault’ divorce, the default position is nevertheless that the fault is placed on the shoulders of the men. All of that works exceedingly well, so that, if they cannot … Continue reading

Survivor hyperbole – increasingly popular survivor fad

Survivor hyperbole – Survivors of [insert victimhood category] – is an ever more popular survivor fad.  What is it with the growing popularity of the fad that drives ever more people to assert that they are survivors of something or other? If merely being alive is classified as survival, does that make a mundane life heroic? An old saw goes, “What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger,” and another one, “Adversity makes people tough,” or “When the going gets tough, the tough get going.” Nothing is perfect. Not even things that kill do kill everyone, but what about things that are not obviously, extremely rarely or not even logically fatal? Is someone … Continue reading

Parkinson’s Law — Its various forms make society creak

Parkinson’s Law (a.k.a. Parkinsons Law), and some of it variations and roles in the context of the gradual decline of the efficiency and effective operations of governments, were described by C. Northcote Parkinson (* 30 July 1909 – † 9 March 1993), when he presented his first law (and some others that are derived from or relate to it), “Work expands so as to fill the time available for its completion.” That was in a 1955 essay published in The Economist, an essay which is accessible online.  Here is the beginning of it (click on the image for the rest): That essay is short, but – because it became very … Continue reading

Second-wave Feminism — Ideological Foundation

…. previous page Part of the series ‘Communism → second-wave feminism → social re-engineering’ Index and preamble for series The ideological foundation of Second-wave Feminism Second-wave Feminism  is (as are most other forms of feminism) firmly rooted in communism and in the prevalence throughout history of socialism and its never-changing goal, Utopia, Paradise on Earth. Communism can be made impervious to all criticism, by giving it a name that makes it untouchable, say, Feminism.  Communism and any other ideology become intrepid, as soon as they assume the label or even only the appearance of being an aspect of feminism. “Feminism, Socialism, and Communism are one in the same, and Socialist/Communist … Continue reading

Divorce causes escalating suicide rates

…. previous page Part of the series ‘Communism → second-wave feminism → social re-engineering’ Index and preamble for series Escalating suicide rates Divorce causes escalating suicide rates, primarily for men and to a far lesser extent for women.  It stands to reason that, if the suicide rates for the sexes were reversed, that the suicide rates of women would receive far greater attention than the far higher ones of men do now.  Yet, it can be argued that virtually all of society conspires to downplay and preferably ignore that men die through suicide in epidemic proportions, in very large numbers, in each passing year. There are reasons why men commit suicide … Continue reading

The divorce revolution ends reign of the family

…. previous page Part of the series ‘Communism → second-wave feminism → social re-engineering’ Index and preamble for series The divorce revolution ends the reign of the family The divorce revolution – for all practical ends and purposes – put an end to traditional marriage vows that once meant much and were taken seriously: The man: “I, [name of groom], take thee, [name of bride], to be my wedded wife, to have and to hold from this day forward, for richer or poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, till in death we part, and with this ring I thee wed, and with my body I thee honor, and … Continue reading

Mass killer, spree killer, rampage killer, serial killer…?

Mass killer, spree killer, rampage killer, serial killer… What is the difference? ‘A Nation of Killers?‘ argues that nationality is not a factor in serial killing and implies that neither is the sex of the perpetrator. It uses the term ‘spree killer’ to identify the phenomenon of mass killers but implies that the borders between the categories serial killer and mass killer are blurred. ‘Breaking the Silence of the Lambs: Female Serial Killers and Collective Amnesia‘ identifies that men do not have a monopoly on being serial killers and that our collective amnesia with respect to female serial killers is quite recent (a consequence of the effectiveness of public relations efforts … Continue reading

Divorce hurts Children, a million more in the U.S. a year

Divorce hurts children: “Each year, over a million American children suffer the divorce of their parents. Divorce causes irreparable harm to all involved, but most especially to the children. Though it might be shown to benefit some individuals in some individual cases, over all it causes a temporary decrease in an individual’s quality of life and puts some “on a downward trajectory from which they might never fully recover.”1 Divorce damages society. It consumes social and human capital. It substantially increases cost to the taxpayer, while diminishing the taxpaying portion of society. It diminishes children’s future competence in all five of society’s major tasks or institutions: family, school, religion, marketplace and government. The reversal of the cultural and social … Continue reading
