-A Progressive Assault on the Family

Take a look at these quotes from a couple of ‘progressive’ university professors:

"One way philosophers might think about solving the social justice problem would be by simply abolishing the family. If the family is this source of unfairness in society, then it looks plausible to think that if we abolished the family there would be a more level playing field."

"What we realized we needed was a way of thinking about what it was we wanted to allow parents to do for their children, and what it was that we didn’t need to allow parents to do for their children, if allowing those activities would create unfairnesses for other people’s children."

So let me get this straight, if children raised in a traditional two parent home are more successful on an average than those raised by a single parent or those coming from an unconventional environment, then the two parent home needs to be abolished or restricted in the name of equality and ‘fairness’?

Today in America there is an on-going assault on the traditional family. You can see it demonstrated on TV and in movies. Confusing extended groups of people living together demonstrating a new variety of the thing called ‘family.’ The old ‘Leave it to Beaver’ days where homes were populated by a dad and a mother raising their own children are over according to the popular media in our culture. Now there are live-in boy friends and girlfriends, same-sex couples, and an assortment of unrelated others showing the way to the promise land of today’s ‘modern family.’ 

Anyone who has children in school lately has experienced this subtle assault for themselves. Sometimes it is just a harmless children’s book like “Heather has two Mommies” exposing the child to alternate families with same-sex parents. Sometimes it is more obvious. In the name of what is best for society, children are being encouraged to question what their parents are doing or teaching them in the home. If they are wasting water or not properly recycling the trash children are encouraged to challenge their parents to do a better job. In this case, what I am really concerned about is the less than subtle divisive impression given to children that their parents are ignorant and cannot be trusted and that the educators know better.

In California, children beginning in the 1st grade are now exposed to the different varieties of sexual orientation and encouraged to identify who they really are for themselves regardless of their physical identity. If a child determines that he or she would rather be ‘transgender’ then by state law they are now able to use the restrooms and locker rooms of the opposite sex. All of this without parent notification or permission. There is a prevailing philosophical attitude in the schools that parents just get in the way and should be ignored if possible.

The idea that educators know what is best for children begins on our college and university campuses. If you haven’t been to college for a while you might be surprised by some of the current popular prevailing notions being kicked around today about where the family needs to go in the future, like those quoted above. Some progressive thinkers would like to abolish the family altogether and place the children under the custody of a benevolent ‘progressive’ state. In the meantime they are looking for ways to phase the parents out of the role of teaching and raising their own children. Particularly when it comes to religion. If this sounds familiar to some of you older folks, it is. The Russian Communists tried this for 70 years and their whole society and economy collapsed.

Nevertheless, these ‘new’ ideas are being foisted upon a whole new generation of college and university students. Look for some of these ‘new’ progressive ideas to become the philosophical basis for new attacks upon the traditional family in the near future.               *Top

    There is no assault on the family structure by progressives, and that is a very disingenuous notion. Progressives have always valued the family unit and have and very much still do advocate for family needs. You can cherry pick the media to find anyone of any persuasion to suit your argument. Then, to segue into evincing the progressive degradation of the family by attaching support for alternative gender relationships, is also a gross distortion.
    Perhaps your world view requires the assignment of liberal thinking to the causal basis for societies ills; hopefully the careful analyst would avoid such underpinnings.
