Baskerville on Divorce

I came across this stunningly good article by Stephen Baskerville, 'Divorced from Reality'. Excerpt:

"The decline of the family has now reached critical and truly dangerous proportions. Family breakdown touches virtually every family and every American. It is not only the major source of social instability in the Western world today but also seriously threatens civic freedom and constitutional government.

G. K. Chesterton once observed that the family serves as the principal check on government power, and he suggested that someday the family and the state would confront one another. That day has arrived.

Most Americans would be deeply shocked if they knew what goes on today under the name of divorce. Indeed, many are devastated to discover that they can be forced into divorce by procedures entirely beyond their control. Divorce licenses unprecedented government intrusion into family life, including the power to sunder families, seize children, loot family wealth, and incarcerate parents without trial. Comprised of family courts and vast, federally funded social services bureaucracies that wield what amount to police powers, the divorce machinery has become the most predatory and repressive sector of government ever created in the United States and is today’s greatest threat to constitutional freedom".

'During the 1980s and 1990s, waves of child abuse hysteria swept America and other countries. Sensational cases in Washington state, California, Massachusetts, North Carolina, Ontario, Saskatchewan, the north of England, and more recently France resulted in torn-apart families, blatantly unjust prison sentences, and ruined lives, while the media and civil libertarians looked the other way.'

I can testify to the hysteria in england in the late 1990's.

I was around 20 years old at the time, and I remember seeing mobs of women screaming and shouting on housing estates all aound the country.

I remember hearing one story of a man, a pediatrician who worked medically with children, having a mob of women outside his home day and night, shouting abuse at him and his family, just because the word 'pediatrician' sounds a bit like the word 'pedophile'.

As a victim of female behaviour in my life, I believe its not only the government and feminists to blame for all this, its women themselves, they went along with all this, certainly in england they did in the late 90's, because they wanted the freedom to do whatever they wanted, without men questioning them.

Women should have come out at the time and said NO, this is not right, branding ALL men as pedophiles is WRONG, but they didnt, they just allowed it to go on.
