In all seriousness, you have to stop reading neo-christian capitalist crap.

believe it was Carl Marx who said that the only way to bring down America is to break down the family unit because the family is the microcosm of the nation. If the family is strong, the nation is strong; if the family is weak, the nation will crumble.


In the right wing eyes this is what Marx said, because of thier view of family. What Marx said was that the "traditional" family was created by society to subjugate women and children to lesser than the dominante male household leader. By keeping the economically unsafe they had no option to "obey" the Father.

Marx wanted to free women and their children from patriarchal rule.

To christian conservatives that gets translated to break up of family but to most thinking people that gets translated to equality and economic justice as well as improving America by allowing women to be complete beings, not just mothers and housewives (not to say you cannot be a complete being as mother or housewife, but you better have your own savings account and education if you are to be free)

In the world of the internet and unlimted information there is no excuse for being ignorant.
