why marry? And it goes FAR beyond that–why even date? Even in college we are seeing a pronounced lack of dating and grossly diminished desire (on guys’ part) to get married at all. I mean, why buy the cow when you get the milk for free? Plus, you may be required to pay for that cow over and over again, even if the cow is gone.

We need to understand that there has been a dramatic shift in the culture in a single generation–in 20 years, really. Militant feminists have indeed done quite a bit of damage, but they are not the only guilty parties. Funny how traditional roles really ARE the best, eh? Yeah, they were there for a reason.

It is overweening hubris to think that this generation (and the one before it) is wiser than centuries of accumulated wisdom. The “hippies” of the ’60s were a terrible generation. And the damage they caused just keeps coming. They brought us Leftism, naked hot tub therapy, and bell bottoms. It was an ugly and stupid era all around. Unfortunately, their contaminant is still with us. The new generation would be wise to turn away.

    What’s the solution? Is there one?

      There truly is no easy one, but a few things may well help. We need to understand that this is a cultural problem. But there are a few possible things to do:
      1) Tell the truth about how bad the 60s generation is and was. Let’s not sugar-coat things.
      2) Stop subsidizing illegitimacy.

      Both of things things to mean that we move away from this goofy Leftism.

      It’s a start.

        If we stop subsidizing illegitimacy won’t that just hurt the innocent children of illegitimate relationships?

          Tough to know, eh? Maybe we need to bring back orphanages. But it is VERY clear that what we are doing now is not working.
